That may be the measure of our lives." - Toni Morrison

"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

i am baffled as to why these things exist

If worrying about octopi and clowns wasn't enough,
this certainly did the trick.

Please note the part about them being found "in shoes, inside dressers, in bed sheets [. . .] in stacks of clothes, behind baseboards, behind pictures, and near furnaces".
Oh yeah, they're nocturnal too.
sleeping is now entirely out of the question}.

Why Animal Planet would air a show about a man's house that was infested with these vile creatures, I'll never know. Maybe they just want to make people paranoid. {it worked}.

What I leaned from the show:
1. check shoes, bed, folded clothes, etc. before use.
2. kill all spiders on exceptions.
3. a bite from one of these bad boys, left unattended for even a few hours, results in a horrific, gaping wound.
4. because of number three, please refer back to number two. {but read it more emphatically this time}.

{note to self: don't watch Animal Planet unless it's a show about kitties}
