i am overly terrified of spiders. i am surprised i could even type the word "tarantula" into the search engine to finish this post. but i was thinking, irrational fear has to come from somewhere, right? i've never been harmed by one or even seen one (too close)besides petco..and i do that to freak myself out.

my two favorite movies when i was little (aka: still now that i am 21) were/are:

jungle 2 jungle
and home alone.
both involving two terrifying and disgustingly hairy tarantulas. sick, sick, sick.
come to think of it, my dad caught one out where we live (in the middle of nowhere) and scared me and my sister with it. then my dog tried eating it--leg by leg. i'm getting chills just thinking about it.
