I saw a spider tonight- a giant, fat creature who was dangling outside one of the living room windows. I was fascinated by her work; a web just begun but starting to take form. And I think something finally fell into place, because it just might have been the first time I've watched a spider and felt awestruck by the talent and beauty in the work they do.

Who would've ever thought that the son of an arachnophobe would ever stand in awe of such a creature?

Per request (how did I know you'd want to see photos, [livejournal.com profile] dirtyjew?!?), this post contains pictures of our bug.

Funny thing is, we discovered tonight that our bug is actually TWO bugs! I was coming upstairs and found what appeared to be our bug at the top- on his back, antennae barely moving. (I will admit to being a bit saddened that he looked so close to heading to bug heaven.) I eventually was able to get him to grip onto the end of a Q-tip and brought him downstairs to chill on one of the plants.

I went back upstairs and, to my surprise, found his twin just outside the bedroom door (a mere 2 feet from where I had just rescued poor bug #1). I snapped a few pics and was going to let him go on his way when Luka decided that bug #2 looked like a fun plaything and pounced. I spent a good 5 minutes trying to get Luka to go away so I could scoop bug #2 up and safely transport him down the the plant to be rejoined with his twin. Who would have figured someone could get so worked up over a couple of bugs?

Anywho... Here's the little guy who dodged a painful death by ferocious kitten )

There's been a random monster bug in our room for the past week. Normally we would carefully capture it and put it outside "where it belongs," but neither of us have been able to. Mostly because it's freezing and we're both worried it will die if we relocate it.

What is odd is that I've seen it at least 3 times in the past week and never mentioned it to Kat. Just last night she said, "Just so you don't freak out, there's this bug in the bedroom..." So we discussed how we've both been letting it go about its business and how strange we found it that neither of us had done anything when usually there would be no question of moving the prickly-looking thing.

I admitted to actually talking to the bug and telling it that as long as it stayed away from the bed I had no problem with it hanging out in the warmth of the house. Yes, I know. I'm a super "woo woo" nutter. Deal.

This morning, I found Luka in the sink again. I managed to snap a few photos, but not before he stopped the cute lounging pose.

Here They Are )

In other news, I'm walking around with sharpie marker on my arm. It feels silly, but I'm testing out the tattoo I want to get next and making sure I like the placement. So far so good. If all goes well, I should be able to get the tat within the next week or so. I've been craving another tattoo in the most serious way for a while now, so hoooray for new ink!
