Contemplating a spider that I captured and released today,* and whether it heralded an untoward increase in the number of spider encounters I'd be having in the near future, the following sentence printed itself across my brain:

"My hatred is vast and my weapons are many."

This is a true thing. But it probably wouldn't fly on a t-shirt, or even a button. This is a mental-only kind of motto, and that's fine with me.

(Unrelatedly, my home computer is still offline, in case you were wondering)

(there'll be a Dogblog update when it comes back)

* I do this with every spider (using a bug vacuum gun), unless it's in my bedroom or the kitchen, or if it's surprised me unpleasantly. Those spiders I kill without hesitation.
