This is how I caught him and set him free. I forgot that I took pictures of his emancipation.

This is how we used to catch the cockroaches in our college shack and take them to the catercorner neighboring house's porch (after they offended us with loud parties with highly annoying music and trash).

Parker? Or maybe Anansi? I was trying to think of a good wolramism for a name, maybe something like Skitchy.

Anansi the Spider was one of my favorite stories when I was little. I think it's an excellent name for a spider.

I really do not follow your thinking, but as it must be better than mine Skitchy sounds fine :approve:

You could just step on him and call him Spot.

If your spider is clever, you could call him Algernon.

Sorry my bad, I was referring to the size of the envelope and not the species of spider :)

But that is still one huge wolf spider. I would hate to wake up with one of those on my face :bugeye:

LOL!!! I thought maybe you were an arachnid person and A4 was some term you used.

Hey, I'm only operating on 2 neurons, I just woke up.

Anyway, it is a poisonous spider, the envelope tested negative for venom.

My grandmother was very superstitious and, if I remember correctly, though that killing a spider indoors would somehow keep money from you. But I guess she was wrong. :biggrin:

Finding a spider on your clothes means a letter, money or both.

Tetanus is a fitting, majestic name for a spider, I think!

"Staph Infection" works too.

Charlotte, as in Charlotte's web.

Nevermind, Charlotte's already been suggested.

How about Wilbur?

Only if the spider owns a talking horse.
