Super Powers

I keep thinking to myself "Hey self, why don't you write this blog you've always been thinking about but not doing?" And I think back to myself "*shrug*"
So I've come to two conclusions: 1. I should probably stop doing that whole thinking like that to myself thing and 2. Maybe I'll try actually adding to blog


Anyways,

Me and spiders do not get along that well; it's like if you were walking down the sidewalk and saw a strange person walking towards you (or axe wielding murderer) you'd cross the street to avoid him or her. Spiders are my axe wielding murderers, to say I'm a bit worried about them is an understatement. I've had some memorable moments with them, from standing there pointing and screaming at one to throwing myself into a lake fully clothed because one was on me. I would like to say since then I've grown up, and I don't scream anymore, I might still throw myself into a lake, but I won't scream while doing it! But I've had encounters with two big ones that have left me wondering... Why in the hell would a spider ever have to be THAT big?!

Incident 1:

My mom was being.. well herself and was like "Go make me some popcorn!" Being the angelic and loving daughter I am, I graciously went and made her some popcorn. I can almost assure you there was no muttering about her getting off her ass to make her own popcorn.. that's just not something I would do. So I go make her popcorn and see something I had to put in the recycling, and I do so. Our recycling bin is half way down the stairs to the basement, sitting there, taunting me I'm sure because it knows what is going to happen.. So I go down and put it away and turn around to go back up the stairs, and I spy up in the corner this thing. I am blind without my glasses so I take another step up and squint at it and I see... The BIGGEST spider everrrr. Seriously, tarantula size. Well, since I don't scream, I silently stood there and had several heart attacks in rapid succession before I could finally breathe and run. I was up a flight and a half of stairs and down the hallway in my mom's room wildly gesturing and making half words in about 2 seconds. No lie. She then told me to go get her popcorn, in other words, walk near that THING within a 10 metre radius. That's when the shock hit, I started crying and went in my room, stuffed a towel under the door crack and rocked myself to sleep.

Incident 2:

I got home from the long weekend (today) and went into my room. All was going well, just started up my computer and and then I looked up.. And above my window is The BIGGEST spider everrrr. I have to say, compared to above story, I took this one pretty well. I had only about 3 heart attacks, didn't scream of course and left the room. When I say left the room, I mean down two flights of stairs and in my brother's room wildly gesturing and making half words in about 2 seconds. No lie. My brother came upstairs, killed it (and it made, ughh, a loud crunching noise) and flushed it. We don't know what it really was but my sister says it was a spider-roach or an octo-roach. Why the hell it was in my room, I don't know.. I JUST DON'T KNOW! Some cruel and unusual act of meanness and someone laughing their ass off while I have my heart attacks; I don't know.

Main point is, the reason the title is Super Powers is because I can not move that fast. The only time I run is for the ice cream truck, and even then I'm not breaking sound barriers like I do when I see those things. So apparently with the right -yet wrong in so many ways- motivation like spiders, I gain super powers! Which is kind of cool.

I just wish the only way to activate them wasn't spiders...

    I like spiders, especially the really big ones. I'd take a swarm of spiders over a swarm of disease-carrying blood-sucking ear-buzzing insects anyday~

    Oh and never come visit me~ When I say I like them, I mean that they nest in the crack in my bathroom wall~

    Oh god. I do believe one of those spiders infested a home I used to live in before.

    I was sitting at my computer chair one night. Turned my head to the left. And there was this HUGE spider just sitting on the wall next to the sliding glass door. I jumped out of my seat and ran away. My parents thought I was nuts.

    I didn't sleep down in my room that night. I've been scared to death of spiders ever since. Super powers are needed when dealing with those monsters D:

    Even after it's killed I get that super paranoid feeling and jump at every rustle, and if a hair falls on my arm I freak out xD

    I'd almost rather have an axe wielding murderer sitting in the top corner of my wall then a spider..
    Maybe..
