so i'm scurrying round the house while the servers are down on ffxi (i'm on ragnarok as maegwin, btw, sorry kyle, i peeked in too far!), picking up stuff. i plop back down in my chair, sitting on my left foot like i usually do, and check LJ. the bottom of my foot tickles, so i reach down and cup it, something falling off into my hand. i look down, expecting to see a piece of paper or something other random article that i had inadvertantly picked up on my house roaming this morning.
instead, i see a large, curled up, dead spider in the palm of my hand.
i scream and fling it as far from me as possible. looks like it had curled up and died a long time ago.
