The other day my friend came over with a nice little eighth of some decent high grade bud (to smoke, of course). We were sitting in my room watching tv and toking up when my friend points to the wall and says "Dude, there's this bigass spider on your wall." He had the kind of expression I've only seen him make when he was completely serious. I looked and there was the biggest godamn spider I'd ever seen close up. I live in northern Illinois in the middle of a residential area, so this is a very rare occurence. The sucker was a good 3 inches in diameter and it took five smacks from an old issue of 'Nintendo Power" to finally stop moving. I looked it up and it didn't seem like any kind of spider native to this area, although the most poisonous spider that does live around here is only poisonous enough to give you a nasty case of blood poisoning (if you get bit you need to get the bite surgically removed). Now I'm all freaked out about spiders crawling on my face while I'm sleeping and what-not, any similar experiences?
