Crappy week  
Among other things, i had to work "late" today to fix up an annoying bug and missed out on the Video Game Music Show =/

Also, i think i may have killed a spider on wednesday. :( When i opened the garage door when i got home there was a spider hanging off the bottom. I didn't want to run into it with the car, so i grabbed the thread it was hanging off of and tried to move it out of the way, but as soon as i did that it panicked and dropped down to the ground. I certainly didn't want to run _over_ it with the car, so i tried to brush it out of the way. But then it curled up into a little ball and stopped moving. I brushed it the rest of the way to the side and i'm hoping that it was just stunned or playing dead to get me to leave it alone, but i'm afraid to look at that part of the ground outside the garage because if there's _still_ a curled up ball of spider there... :(

On the plus side i did get to hang out with shelleycat twice this week instead of just once, which makes up for quite a bit.

I'm sorry you had a crappy day. :(

(I can't help but note that I think it's kind of weird that you're still concerned about killing a spider two days ago. But weird in a cute way.)

Well it probably wouldn't be so much on my mind if i didn't have to walk past the spot twice a day and concentrate on not looking at it.

I wonder how long i have to wait before i can be sure that environmental conditions would have gotten rid of the theoretical corpse, so it can remain a Schrödinger spider? =/

I could be wrong, but I think spiders do curl up like that in defense. I understand your concern, though (I'm weird like you).
