Arachnid 2000

[Spider on ceiling]Last week it seemed that I was evicting a lot of spiders from the house. That is, I think it’s a lot of spiders – or it could be the same one over and over I suppose. I keep spotting them on the ceiling in the living room or in the kitchen. It always seems to be the same type – a huntsman. It’s a spider which in theory is harmless, except that just looking at its big hairy legs gives me the willies.

But I don’t understand why so many are coming into the house at the moment. Are they all delegates for the Arachnid 2000 Conference that somebody has convened at the Daniel’s Ceiling Congress Centre? Or perhaps it’s just the recent warm weather. Who knows, but thankfully I haven’t spotted any in the last few days. They’re probably harassing a neighbour.
