They’re coming to eat the city!


My office is up on the 15th floor by the lake and over the last couple of days the spiders outside the window have gotten a) numerous and b) big.

Thank god they can’t come inside.

Or can they?! Reet-reet! (<– Psycho knife-slashing music)

    Looks like the spider is hanging over that building. Nice show.

    Interesting coincidence. A good friend of mine works at a radio station, also on the fifteenth floor of a building near the Lake (do you know Julie??), and she pointed these out to me when I came to visit her there.

    How on earth do they get up there? I imagine they could send out threads of silk, like some spiders can, and travel on the lake breeze, but the spiders I saw on the studio windows were awfully big compared to the tiny ones that land on you when you are out sailing on the Lake!

    My wife had them outside her window, on the 35th floor, not by the lake. They *are* everywhere… inside? Where there’s a will, there’s a way! :)
