Trick or treat! Happy Halloween, everyone! I almost put up a big scary picture here -- my brother-in-law Chris took one that is honestly really creepy... but decided it might freak a few people out, so I put it in after the jump.

AAAAAAIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee! That little lady is a Black Widow spider Chris spotted making a meal of a honeybee on his patio behind the house. He spotted the bee in trouble on the web and then the spider ran out from the siding, did her business, and ran back in. So. Sweet dreams, me droogs. Why, I'm sure that itch on your leg as you lie under the covers is nothing, nothing at all.
