Last night, as I slumbered, I felt a little tickle near the top of my forehead. Not so much a tickle, really. More of an itch. I groggily raised my hand up to brush aside the random hair, or whatever it was. My fingertips fell upon something round and firm, about the size of a peppercorn. I tried to wipe it from my head. Somehow, in my dream state, I suddenly realized I had no reason to have a peppercorn-like object on my head, so I reached up again to check it out. It was still there, but it would not just wipe away. I grabbed it, pulled it through the strands of my tangled hair, and flung it onto the blanket.

This morning I saw what it was. A spider. A big one. A big, dead spider. Oh, and it was bigger than a peppercorn.

A spider with a body larger than a peppercorn had crawled on me. ON MY FACE.
You’re all itchy right now, aren’t you?

Stuff Portrait Friday

Hectic week, but I managed to play. This week’s assignment from Kristine was:

Your puzzle
Your best
Something old
(in honor of her upcoming nuptuals!)

My puzzle is this garage. I don’t know how to make it all fit somewhere. Anywhere. In time for next week’s housewarming party. ACK!
Still unpacking

My best. This is easy. The best thing about my life is that I’m spending it with this guy. And yes, he really likes that cheese.
Crazy for cheese

My something old is Panasonic. I’ve worked there for nearly seven years, but after today it will be my old job. I have mixed emotions about this, but I’m excited about my new idea for life.
Out with the old

Did you play?
