    The proper response to this is YES!

    Niece Barbara woke up to a tarantula crawling across her face. I'm surprised she didn't shoot holes in the wall. She has also shared pictures of a snake climbing the wall outside the house. I do want to visit the ranch but will only do so in daylight.

    I sort of understand. I have a friend who canít watch basketball games broadcast from the U of Richmond.

    Phobias are a mild form of mental illness. They are irrational fears and although the rational part of my brain understands that a picture is not going to hurt me, it does not matter, my brain cannot function rationally in that situation.

    Stairway to Heaven - Lep Zepplin

    Didn't bother to find the video this evening. Just phoning it in.

    The jets are loud tonight. Military training and large cargo planes. The cargo planes are notable as they move quite slowly.

    What about Charlotte? She's a sweet, gentle spider.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    I always confuse Lep Zepplin with Ded Leddard

    I always confuse Dolph Lundgren with Led Zeppelin. Odd.

    When I lived in Atlanta, there was a band called Dread Zeppelin. It was a reggae band that played Zeppelin covers, with an Elvis impersonator fronting the band. It was . . . unique.

    (ETA — looking it up, they are from California and are still active. I thought it was a local thing up until just now).

    No way, I had a few of their cassettes.

    I'm not afraid of heights. I'm afraid of falling from high places.

    Arachnophobia isn't a sign of mental illness if you happen to have three lunkers under the bed...

    LOL

    Fear can be rational, but then it's not a phobia.

    I have a great spider story that ends with me naked and a pizza in the floor. It really was a wild sequence of events.

    Please do not be offended, but there is no such thing as a "great" spider story. Horrible? Awful? Terrifying? Sure. But this phobic person really doesn't want to hear any of them. My imagination is much too vivid to endure spider stories. I don't even recount my own encounters with the dark side.
