I hate spiders. I'd follow that up by saying, who doesnt?, but I acutally had a co-worker once who thought they were the cutest things ever. She bred them and kept some as pets and sold the rest for apparently not too shabby profit to others who also love them.
I know in the whole circle of life thing that they area good bug, eating off the more annoying ones... but get me alone in a room with one and things will not turn out well.
So I did a good job of NOT looking at any spider reference material for this, save to remind myself of what the Spider lady in James and the Giant Peach looked like.
