Douchebags.

spiders are pretty cool animals. They're always ready to move. They don't seem to lounge around like dogs or cats do....able to be startled at any point. Their ability to disappear and appear at will is also cool! Perhaps our 8 legged cousins are more sinister in your area!

They climb on your ceiling and fall on you while you're in bed.

The spidey one freaked me out a little!

DLJ's reaction to spiders:

I got a "image cannot be displayed" message only. Was the file too big or was it just filthy?

I'm not sure, but I'm still enjoying it! Big Grin

Can you describe it for me, I seem to be in a gif free zone


This isn't what the gif was, but I like this one better:

RE: 10 fun misconceptions debunked
I get the snow myth here all the time. So annoying. Also, about love. I try to explain the concept of adjectives to describe the noun, but 'a word is just so much cooler'! is usually the response. ha ha.
