Little Did You Know: Spiders stalk me.

The last time I was in our pool earlier this week, I swear I could feel myself being stared down. And threatened. Very dangerously so.

I do not have a snapshot of the one they have found lurking very near to where I was sitting then. I don’t want to see the picture of it if someone else goes to snap a pic. And when Nat takes special time and effort to research the damned beast on the Internet, and when Susan ominously says I don’t want to know the details of what they have found, I can only imagine how bad that is. Nor does it help to hear that the other day when Susan was over next door borrowing flour for some baking Nat was doing, our neighbor took the opportunity to ask if we were having any problems with spiders.

I hereby amend the answer I gave for this past week’s not-meme post, as to where I would like to retire. Make it: someplace that does not have any spiders!!

And for now, just aim a flame-thrower at our backyard foliage.

Little Did You Know: I see things in the shapes and shadows of trees the way others see them in clouds. Faces and silhouettes. Sharks and angels and battles and ships. Tunnels and galaxies and castles and crowds. Passions and threats and dreams.

This one is much more trite than all that. Here I simply liked how well the clouds practiced their impression of the trees.

Virtual Backgame

Little Did You Know: I enjoy playing double-blindfold backgammon.

No board, no pieces, no doubling cube. Not even a pair of dice. Both players playing it only in their heads. Like blindfold chess, each player must remember the position emerging on the board. And as is advisable in blindfold chess, one does well to memorize every move made, in case any dispute about the position should arise. Read the rest of this entry »
