I just rescued a lil spider who was crawling around on my kitchen table and he was tiny and neon yellow and he thought he was so fierce bc when I got close to him to take him outside he raised his front legs (they were longer than the others) and waved them around and tried to be menacing but instead he just was a cute little blob and not at all scary
I just phoned dad from my room in tears bc a big spider ran across my carpet and he came to rescue me in less than 30 seconds with a tub in hand and shushed me bc I started panicking asdfghjkl 🥺 I asked if I was being silly or if it was actually quite big and he said "uhh... it's a sizeable one, yeah" (he had to use an A4 sheet of paper to slide under the tub, if that's any help for sizing images). 🥺 and then I asked if it was a bitey one and he said "nah, just a house spider. you're fine" I cry 😭 BEST DAD AWARD💖💖💖💖
Lockdown is pretty much over, work is slowing down recording so here we are talking about the most expensive meal we’ve ever had, share our personal & favourite mottos, gear up some cocaine bees, answer if Spiderman reacts disgusted when he walks through a spider web, 300 an historical event, compile an Anti-Bucket List, & spend a day in the last book we read.
Hosts this issue are Heather, Tom &…
the additions to the red room get more nonsensical as you go down the list when you think about it bc
first we have the bl/ack widows, the original & only was natalia & later yelena joined her rank.
then they added various miscellaneous bl/ack wi/dows that they very often don’t even bother to name much less give any kind of backstory or information on beyond “ orphan, “ for some reason. i can think of one that had a name but i can’t actually remember her name rip.
after them, there’s the red widows, of which there are i believe only two, ava & a currently unnamed woman who’s part of the winter guard. ava isn’t actually a confirmed member of the red room & it’s implied that her name came from the combination of her admiration of natalia’s strength & wanting to be more “ reliable “ than her, but the unnamed woman apparently was affiliated with the red room in some way.
we also have the wolf spiders which is the male equivalent of the bl/ack wi/dows that never gained traction bc nico, the original trainee, was too uncontrollable & they shut it down before producing any wolf spiders.
then we also have recluse who is more or less detached from the red room bc she wasn’t technically trained in or by it, but who is still affiliated with it bc her mother was a trainer or something in it???
i don’t know what’s happening please marble stop this
Oh! Same here!! The spiders in my ceiling can hang out there as long as they don't come down and p l e a s e Mr Spider eat the mosquitoes this t i m e. If they come down they get kicked out of my house via glass
sometimes we get these tiny cross orbweavers that set up in our kitchen right over the table and they catch any bugs that fly into the house so we leave them. doing hard work in exchange for not getting thrown out of the house.
Highly recommend watching this clip with Keegan-Michael Key where he talks about his adoption.
"I have a people-pleasing issue, I do think it comes from being adopted. I think people who are adopted have this kind of situation where you go, "I'm going to do everything everybody else tells me, because I don't want to get abandoned again." I think that happens to people."
Many adoptees struggle with attachment, including worries about abandonment. The fear we'll be "abandoned again" is almost a universal struggle when that attachment with your original parents is severed.
