We've been a little, er, lax on the housework of late, having had a full schedule of riding and travelling and internetting and watching movies and generally being the slackers that we are.

being as it's fall the spiders have been busily doing their thing, and I probably move / escort 1 or 2 per day from various spots (the bathtub, the kitchen sink, the counters) where they are neither safe nor appreciated. I found this poor li'l guy arse-up next to my cereal bowl this AM... I think he got accidentally squished under the big CD case and/or pile of boxes BoyToy brought in from our Steamboat Springs trip and dumped on the kitchen table.

note to self: BoyToy and I prolly do need to do some house cleaning.

I idly snapped a pixxor with my iPhone and posted it on Facebook, much to my mom's disgusted amusement. BoyToy txted me like 2 minutes after her comment to say "ok tonight we stay home and clean house NO RIDING NO INTERNET".

Summary: Technology may have significantly changed the ways in which we interact over the past 2 or 3 decades, but I still get yelled at for being a slob. =P

With a clean house the spiders just stand out more. Spiders don't eat dirt or dust, just sayin'.

My cat eats them. Mostly it's no problem. Every now and then she'll get one that doesn't agree with her, then she horks it up on the floor. SO either way I'm cleaning

Spiders are a'ight, they kill the other stuff that we don't like!

The old house hasn't got screens on the old wood windows, so little flying things get in sometimes -- the cats, they love killing the big moths, and then hiding them in top secret places.

C'mon, guys...

whaddya wan' me to do, there's no screens!

In the 3 non-summer seasons the storm windows have screens... but the regular oldschool ones, that's just not possible without looking horrible!

Be careful with that no screen business. Bats are bad news in the house.

Here's another spider for you.

that carpet is serious
That isn't carpet it's a tablecloth.

Don't get me wrong, I think spiders are just fine...long as they're not floating in my Grape-Nuts.

Earwigs, OTOH, can go die in a fire.

Oh yeah, I agree. I have no love for Oriental Cockroaches either...
