There's nothing like trying to relax before going to sleep, and then finding a thing with way too many legs cheerfully crawling along, not six inches from your arm. I swear, my entire body went on intruder alert as I carefully set aside my laptop, then jumped up and shouted "HOLY FUCKING SHIT!" And then, of course, I did the dance of SPIDER SPIDER DEAR GOD IT'S A SPIDER.
It's times like this that bring to mind a (partial) quote from Good Omens: "...almost the entire drive of human history has been an attempt to get as far away from Nature as possible...."
I have the feeling I'm not going to get to sleep very easily tonight. *shudders*
