Back to “normal”

Whatever that is.

Since March I have been running senseless trying to get a lot of projects done.  The early part of the year is a great time to plan for conventions, work on the video awards and events for Halloween…but on the personal side that is my busiest time at work.

So now that the conventions are over (for the DG at least) and I am back from 4 days of theater and wine tasting, I am looking forward to having a normal routine: D

So, you would think that I would have a lot to tell you about all these fun events, but I can only focus on one thing.

Something happened that still has me shivering when I think about it.   And as you guessed….it involves a spider.

I am walking along the street in Ashland (where the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is located) and I feel something is in my hair. 

Did I walk to close to a tree and get a bit of branch in my hair?

I wish!!!

I reach up to grab it out of my hair….it feels like a small branch.

I bring my hand down to shake it to the ground, as I do….the branch moves a bit.


I have not seen it….but I know….I just know it is a spider…..

Now….this is all happening in a very short amount of time….and by the time I realize the horror, I am half way through a cross walk on a busy street.

I then pull my hand down with the moving twig/spider and my worst fears are confirmed….it is a spider….crawling around through my fingers.

Freaking out like this in the middle of a crosswalk, is not an option.

While I a screaming like a banshee in my head, I quietly shake the spider off my hand onto the crosswalk……

…..where hopefully it was quickly run over by a semi-truck! :D

For days afterwards, I have been having flashbacks of the feeling of having a spider crawling in my hand.  I don’t think I will ever be the same……

Anyway – I am back now and only a few loose ends to tie up and then I can get working on our stuff!!

Thanks to everyone for sharing your prop building projects with us.  Looking forward to checking out your blogs and seeing what you are up to.
