Hitchin' a Ride

This is not the first freeloading grasshopper to hitch a ride on my windshield, just the first I was able to get a picture of.

He rode from Target to the Dollar Tree. Grasshoppers are bargain hounds.

Third Anniversary: Spiders and Meth

Jason and I celebrated our third anniversary last Tuesday. Like every anniversary, birthday and Valentine's day, he did something amazing and awesome. The traditional list says this is the "leather" anniversary. Seeing as we're both pro-cow, he opted for the modern list, which says the third anniversary is crystal.
I can home from work to find the door covered in plastic wrap with a set of plastic hillbilly teeth taped to it. Jason informed me that we had a "problem" in the house.  Here is the problem:
Apparently the Crystal Spider from the movie, Krull, came over to help out because Jason was busy. Unfortunately, the spider wasn't very good at decorating, opting to fling webbing all over the living room. The teeth on the door (pictured here below the spider's face) were all that was left of the crystal meth addict that the spider ate on his way over.
Jason bought me some lovely gifts, but the spider wrapped them in a lot of webbing (plastic wrap) so it took both of us to open them (Jason and I, the spider refused to help).
Unfortunately, my camera was dead when this happene so all the good pictures are on my phone and I haven"t had a chance to pull them off yet. I had some very lovely flowers, and Jason picked these for me on Saturday:

The spider is still hanging out in our living room. I don't think he's had many jobs since Krull so he's probably low on funds and thinks he can crash with us for a while. I'm okay with that, at least through Halloween, he makes a great decoration. As long as he doesn't leave crystal "surprises" all over the floor.

I'm sure there's people out there that think this is an odd way to celebrate an anniversary, but those people obviously don't know me too well or have never read this blog.
