I don't know why sleep needs to be such an issue with me. This time I was almost asleep and I heard a small noise next to my head. A moment later, something ran down my arm which was outside the covers and jumped off making a "thump" on the bed next to me...

Now I'm awake and truning on the light...just in time to see something dissapear over the side of the bed.

I get up and turn on more lights...big spider...prolly came in with a load of firewood.

I'm awake now

How do you train spiders to bring in your firewood, and can I buy one from you?

That happened to me a few times when I lived in Seattle. Nobody told me about the mutant-fast-as-hell-gigantic-harry-spiders that live there. Anyway, one night I awoke to a spider straddling my face; it had to be the size of my hand. I grabbed it and in a fit of pure unadulterated and irrational fear, flung it across the room only to turn on the lights and realize that it was still at large. I couldn't sleep that night and It haunted my dreams until I moved back to good ol CT safe and sound a few years later.

There were only two complaints I had about living in Western Washington, spiders (they were everywhere) and earthquakes. I absolutely loved everything else about the area.
