Yikes!

Very Large Ant dropped into my lap from my office ceiling. (And has been duly reported to Guy What Calls Pest Control.)

So, that's MY adrenaline rush for the day...

Eep! There are worse things that could drop onto one from the ceiling, but an Insect Of Unusual Size is bad enough.

Indeed. Though I'm also grateful it landed in my lap and not in my hair.

I'm generally pretty blasé about Insects Of Whatever Size in my office -- we're right next to a golf course and some major trees, so it happens -- but they don't usually go in for the Death From Above tactics...

Me, I think I've been spending too much time browsing I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER. My first thought was, "Ceiling Cat! Stop dropping your toys on Wiliqueen!"

Better than reaching for a can of Diet Coke and ending up with a small spider in your mouth (that immediately wound up across the room in the Most Horrifying Spit-Take of All Time, followed by a lot of girly screaming).

As someone generally Unbothered By Spiders, I have to affirm that this is EXACTLY what I would have done in your place. Yeeeeep.

I am generally Unbothered by Spiders, too.

Except things like this:

This makes me laugh as a photo, but would not want in my bathroom, no.

Oddly, I used to think nothing of finding black widows behind the trash cans in our garage in Colorado, and dispatching them with a garden trowel. Even though I know they can cause serious harm.

Big honkin' spiders in your house, however, will either make a large mess if you smush them, or be very inconvenient to remove outdoors.
