You Want Terror?

I was supposed to sail this weekend but due to a bunch of odd circumstances, we ended up going to the country instead. It made me realize that in my sheltered sailing life there just isn't the amount of terror that this blog readership demands. But I do have terror in other parts of my life. Behold, the tale of the Black Widow!



Notice to PETA: I'd like to say that no animals were harmed in the making of this video but unfortunately we killed the heck out of that Black Widow. Seriously, it's dead and in many tiny tiny pieces on the bottom of my 3 year old's shoe and his grandfather's channel locks.

In the interest of keeping this blog sailing related, I am wearing a shirt from the Three Bridge Fiasco 2008. I am, after all, a sailor first and spider killer second.

Finally! A remake of Bambi Meets Godzilla.

Bravo!

My kids want more spider closeups next time, if you can swing that. A little dramatic buildup. They thought grandpa with the channel locks was more in the comedy vein, when they were expecting nightmare potential so they could come get in dad's bed in the middle of the night.

I interpreted all of that from what they said, which was something like, "But where's the spider, dad; I can't see it. Can you make it bigger on the 'puter?"

Palin would be proud !

he smiled in the face of terror...

Family of 3 faces the ...the BLACK WIDOW,

The air was thick, like being in the doldrums lost in the fog on the ocean, thick with terror...

Oh man, that was great. I was laughing out loud during that, and I don't me "LOL" --- I mean, I was actually laughing. Thank you.

The best part was when you were loudly encouraging your daughter to "step on it, Nelly, step on it." So great. I can't wait to have kids so we can kill spiders together.

Megan and Katy both think that Noah is a hero! I think Katy said something about "Mad spider killing skills" and he could hang out with her 5th grade friends any day. Apparently that is a good thing! Love you.
