Spidey Part Deux

Not long ago, I wrote about our Pet Spider. Sadly, shortly after that post, this lovely mama spidey did what she was born to do: laid her eggs and died (ala Charlotte's Web). The good news is that, like Wilbur, we have Charolotte's eggs to take care of:

And even better than that, we have a new "pet spidey", named by my daughter - "Spidey, too". She's not quite as flashy, but we do get to see her spin a new web every day (seems like a whole lot of effort for very little return IMHO):

In my former life I was a biologist.

Or a horror story author.

I'm not sure which...

And now, I've spent enough time away from my writing (though this is writing, isn't it?).

Time for some butt glue and inspiration.

I think spiders are so cute. Glad I'm not the only one!

Glad you thought so... I'm pretty certain there are some folks out there that think I'm a little deranged.

Ever watch "Buggin' With Ruud" ?
