Dave!Two of the hotel spiders have disappeared, leaving me with one sole window-mate remaining. At first I thought that he might be dead, but then I saw him wandering around his web and upgraded his condition from "dead" to "feisty zombie." He's out for blood alright, and it's only a sheet of double-paned glass that separates him from mine.

From a distance, Wesley (that's what I named him) is a fairly innocent-looking creature. He's small (less than an inch in length) and could even be considered "cute" if you can get past the fact that he'd gladly kill you if he had a bit more size on him. But when you put your camera on super-zoom, Wesley looks pretty terrifying...

Wesley Spider

He's not somebody I'd like to have as a house-guest, that's for sure.

Anyway, I'm all ready for Davecago2 tonight, and am really looking forward to seeing everybody...

Ready for Davecago

UPDATE: Well, I was planning on posting about the event tonight, but it's past midnight and I have to be up at 5:00am... so I guess my Davecago wrap-up will have to wait for another day. Suffice to say that it was big-fun, as always, and a big thanks to everybody who made the trip!

    Woo-hoo, I’m first!! As Dave said, a good time was had by all (at least I think everyone had a good time). Good food at Pizano’s, and the miles of walking around aimlessly looking for a bar with space to seat all of us worked off all the calories! It was great to see familiar faces from last year and to meet the new people who showed up. Looking forward to the next get-together. If the weather’s nice, we can cook out at our house.

    Maybe you should let Wesley have a little bite. You could be destined to be the next Peter Parker!

    I could totally see you and MJ together…saving worms today and the world tomorrow. 🙂

  5. Wayne says:

    Is the weather ok for DaveCago?

  6. Hilly says:

    Does your spider say, “As you wiiiiish”?

    Glad you all had fun and look forward to the various posts today!

    Hope you checked your luggage for any “blind passenger” spiders before leaving…

    fun badges! is bad monkey eating chicago-style pizza?

    Wesley? We name all of “our kids” (birds, spiders, squirrels, etc.) starting with the same letter as the animal they are… this would be “Sally or, possibly depending if there’s a penis or not, Sam”. Hey, those name tag/lanyards looks awefully familiar! we’ve got two, around the door knob on the guest room.

  10. Avitable says:

    I think it’s so cool that you make those name tags and everything. That just goes above and beyond.

  11. Lisa says:

    Wesley? You named the spider Wesley?? That’s my son’s name, so I’m not really sure how I feel about that.
