In recovery mode, bring more spiders

Yesterday was a lost day. After my booster shot, I experienced the usual phenomena accompanying a challenge to the immune system: aching eyeballs, aching bones, fever, muscle weakness, etc. Man, my immune system was angry and spoiling for a fight, so SARS-CoV-2, I’m warning you, don’t come around here or you’re going to get a whuppin’.

I’m feeling a little less battered today, so here’s something to cheer everyone up: a whole page of charming and cute spider pics. As you might guess from the adjectives, these are all “cute”, which means they’re almost all jumping spiders. Everyone likes jumping spiders. Appreciation of the terrible beauty of, say, Latrodectus is something that has to be learned.

    The cartoonist “Cheney” has a Gary Larson-esque cartoon with a husband going “spider in the shower. Spider in the shower. Drama, drama, drama.,” out of sight of the husband is the shower ställ. The shower certain obstructs most of the spider, apart from the part peeking out above, and below, and the six feet long legs protruding out of the shower ställ.
    Although incomplete, this is my favv spider image.
