Hungry Like the Wolf

Yesterday morning, I snatched back my shower curtain to, you know, take a shower and I screamed loud enough to wake the dead. Which; happily enough was still sleeping in my bed.
I found THIS
in my shower. I made Matt get up but told him not to kill it until I took a picture. The thing was as big as my palm. YUCK!
I just wish I could have used Clorox Cleanup around the drain before taking the picture, but I wasn't about to get near the spider. So don't judge me on the cleaniness or lack-there-of around my drain.

Last night, Sarah Spooner identified it as a Wolf Spider. Great.
The only good news to come from that discovery is from Wikipedia that tells me that Wolf Spiders travel in a "solitary style".


One more reason not to welcome the changing seasons.

That is hideous. I was trapped in a bathroom by one of those once. It was camped out on the door handle. Do they call them wolf spiders because they're big enough to eat wolves?
