I Used To Want To Take A Vacation Here. Now, Not So Much!!

I have always dreamed of taking great vacation to Australia. Not just because it is the birthplace of my favorite performer, ever, the truly generous, extremely talented, absolutely gorgeous, fine, smokin' hot Rick Springfield, but because of the accents (which I adore), the fact that you can go in winter & it is summer there, that I absolutely love Australian black comedy films (Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Muriel's Wedding) & my all-time favorite...because the toilet water spins the counterclockwise when you flush! (Yes, I am way left of center. But if you are a regular reader, you knew that already. Now pick your jaw up off the floor & don't get all shocked about what I find cool & funny!)

I am rather a bit creeped out by these GIANT effing SPIDERS! Especially since the thing is eating a bird, and not a little tiny one, either. A big freakin' bird. Being eaten by an even larger SPIDER! {This is the Australian Golden Orb Weaver Spider}


I found these pictures at Surfer Jerry's blog. He says he is dedicated to finding the strange & bizarre on the internet, which intrigued me because he found me on Blogcatalog & made me his friend! I wonder if he thinks I am strange & bizarre? I am, but that's not the point!

Now, I don't know if these things can eat a human, but I bet it could make you hurt. A lot. And I am almost certain now that "the dingo didn't take the baby", one of these flippin
spiders did! {Extra points to anyone who can identify the movie & actress that the "dingo" line came from. Come on, show me that I am not the only plethora of odd, useless information in the blogosphere!}
