On cedars

My landlord has been outside for hours, trimming the cedar bushes back into phallic shapes.

Yeah it's nice and all, but it creeps me out. Because spiders love cedar. All of the cedars (including two large ones close to either side of my front entrance) are like apartment buildings, absolutely laced with filmy spider terraces/balconies, even spider penthouses with multiple decks higher up -- all equipped with those tunnels the homeowners scuttle from when a visitor drops in for dinner.

I HATE SPIDER TUNNELS.

So landman is blithely trimming away, most likely freaking out the spiders, which will probably pack their bags and leave home, e.g. decide that the area between my inside and outside windows is a safer place to live.

I dislike spiders, wasps, and Hillary Clinton.

You need to train those animals to EAT the bugs! Taz takes care of all moths and mosquitos. I've taught him to love eating bugs!

Feh. Some of my cats (the youngest one) can point out spiders in corners. The others (2 olders) are useless.
