My girlfriend Michele and I were walking through the door last night and I felt something crawling on my neck. I didn't panic. I just instinctively slapped at it and it fell to the floor. Then I looked down and saw this!


Here's what happened next. I exclaimed "Cool!!!" Michele exclaimed "AIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!"

Well now I of course had to get a picture. She of course had to keep freaking out.

Michele hates spiders. She's had nightmares about them and this clearly was not going to help.

The picture came out great too! The green reflection in it's eyes made it just that much creepier.

Have you ever seen a spider like this in Maine? Crazy isn't it?

I mean look at the size of that thing!

You know what's cool about having an 8 megapixel camera in your phone?

It takes amazing close up shots.

Let's zoom out a bit.

Unfortunately Michele was in such a rush to get rid of this dead spider that before I had a chance to put down a penny for comparison, she had whisked it up off the carpet and flushed it down the toilet.

To put it in perspective, this little guy could fit on the face of a penny and still have space to spare. So maybe it's a baby spider and it was crawling down my neck having just hatched from eggs laid in my ear! AIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
