I somehow managed to look up lyrics in Russian.

Mood: not nearly as brave as I appear
Music: Quest Pistols - Я устал

I just spent about an hour translating Soviet propaganda. That was, well, probably useless.

I did nothing yesterday. Nothing. It was amazing and relaxing and awfully boring.

My apartment seems to have been taken over by spiders. Proof:
1) I sat down at my desk, felt something on my knee, jumped up, and after it fell off I realized that it was a spider. At this point I may have yelped. I then grabbed a shoe and killed that motherfucker.

2) I was walking around my apartment, studying (I know, studying on a Saturday - insane. Not to mention the whole studying while walking thing), when I spotted a huge spider on the wall, right next to my desk. I mean, this spider was huge. Possibly the size of Chicago, or maybe even Delaware. It was also fast. So if you are picturing a spider the size of a small Eastern European country with the speed of a Boeing 747, you're on the right track. I grabbed a shoe, decided that it wasn't big enough, and went searching around the apartment for something large that I could do without. So I grabbed an empty box. I was just about to hit the little SOB when I decided that the box wasn't hard enough for my purposes. Then... I grabbed a tupperware container out of the cabinet, got a piece of paper, and trapped the spider inside. I very, very carefully navigated my way toward the front door, realized that I'd left the toilet seat up, and turned into the bathroom instead. I flushed the motherfucker. About two minutes later I flushed again. I WILL NOT HAVE ZOMBIE SPIDERS COMING UP OUT OF MY TOILET, DAMN IT.

But yeah, if I see one more spider this weekend I may be forced to burn down my apartment building. Just sayin'.


Here are some of the pictures from last weekend:

oh my god there was this wolf spider in my room the other night and I let it go because I didn't have anything to kill it, so I let it live for like a week, the next time I saw it I just cornered it IT STARTED TO SHAKE and I smashed that motherfucker to bits.

I mean, I feel bad. but I'm not sharing my room with bugs.SRSLY

Since this post I found three more spiders... including one on my alarm clock. NOT A NICE WAY TO WAKE UP.

Oh god if a spider started to shake I'd think it was about to pop out some eggs and I'd freak the fuck out. I mean holy shit. I'm terrified enough when one is on my knee or races across the wall LIKE IT BELONG THERE OR SOMETHING. Christ. *hates spiders*

For some reason I kept thinking "a spider the size of a buick"

:-)

Heh. Zombie spiders.

oh jeez... if there really was a spider the size of a buick in the world, I'd probably crawl beneath my desk and weep. Then again, that's where I found one of the spiders, so I'd be more likely to fling myself off a bridge.

On the other hand, here's a 50 foot (mechanical) spider: http://www.huliq.com/3260/67810/attack-50-foot-spider

The world will never be the same...
