Welcome to Illinois, Land of the Spider. Yuck. One of the (okay, admittedly MANY) things that bothers me... These pictures were all taken in less than two minutes right outside our back door. They are everywhere here, and I never fail to awaken at least once a night shuddering... just thinking that one might be on me. I haven't seen any actually crawling on me yet, but that will be a terrible day. Disgusting.
