Spiderman, etc  
We went to see Spiderman tonight and it was pretty good. Spiderman wasn't ever my favorite super hero (I liked Batman and the X-MEn) but this movie was worth the watch and had an awesome cast. And it washed away the hideous memory of the last trilogy (I still hope Kirsten Dunst fired whoever told her to do those movies).

The main level of the house is slowly coming together. Sort of. More or less. >.> As long as you ignore the mountain of packing paper slowly avalanching over the family room.

Today I discovered there are spiders in the basement. So now I'll have to do laundry in boots. Tuesday I discovered the dryer had decided to shuffle off its heating coil so I've been drying things out on the deck. Hey, it's a heatwave out there anyway so I might as well cut down the electricity bill anyway, right?

And I found a new brand of cleaners at the grocery store- the brand is IQ and it's made of sustainable, eco-friendly stuff and after you buy the bottle you just get refill packs. So far the glass cleaner and all-purpose cleaners work great and they smell awesome without causing me any asthmatic issues so I am happy.

The only really super annoying thing going on was me having to find new doctors, dentists, optometrists, all that stuff. Optometry was pretty easy, and I am getting new contacts ordered already! The dentists on the other hand... ARGH. I called THREE dentists today during their hours as posted on their websites and even one of them as spoken to me by the cheery little answering machine.... NOT ONE OF THEM WAS OPEN/ANSWERING PHONES. WTAF??! One, okay I get that, two sure bad luck, but three...? Was today some Dentist Holiday? I'm going to try three others tomorrow and if none of them answer either I am giving up and trying that stupid 1800Dentist thing.

Of course, one of the optometry places had a receptionist who couldn't be bothered to check which insurances they take... Because that's a great business practice.

Yeah, I'm super boring this week. You'd seriously not believe the angst-fit I had on Tuesday when the dryer wouldn't work. I'm kind of blaming the stress from the move because with Brynden being at drill and working longer hours with everything I am kind of unpacking and arranging and sorting by myself and tbh a lot of the stuff is not mine it's his and it just sort of feels weird still to paw through his stuff.
... Not weird enough that I won't do it, of course. I mean someone has to go throw out all his old socks or hide the ugly shirts in the depths of the giant closet.... pointedly dump any undesirable decorations in the man-cave... all that stuff.

Oh, and I started watching Dallas. DON'T JUDGE ME. It's actually... sort of fun. Soapy stupid ridiculous fun. But I'll be honest and admit to having watched the old one when TNT used to rerun it. OMG Lucy showed up! For five seconds. I liked Lucy and her stupid spoiled teenage antics on the old show. Also I hate Christopher. I get that he's supposedly the 'good one' but ugh he's so damn sanctimonious that I'd prefer Elena and what's-her-name just hook up and collectively walk out on him. Or strike up a ridiculous menagee trois with John Ross. He's more fun anyway. Srsly. He was getting kinda kinky in the sex tape thing. >.>

Speaking of ridiculous family dynasties...

POLITICAL ANIMALS. HAVE YOU SEEN THIS???! IT'S CAESAR!!! Um, well, Ciaran Hinds anyway, and he's un-married to Sigourney Weaver and seducing starlets and drinking. And Sigourney is being the better version of Hilary Clinton and wants to be president, and it's awesome. I really only turned it on out of idle curiosity but homg the first episode was amazing and I now have to watch the next one.

we never had any spiders in our apartments (except the really shit place we lived in sacramento) but now MOTHER FUCKER, they're everywhere. i know i'm vegan and i'm not supposed to kill things but i will smash the fuck out of these assholes because, no shit, i find five or six of them A DAY showing up. i'll leave the bedroom for an hour and come back to find three have somehow appeared in the corners/behind my laundry basket/in the closet trying on my clothes. STOPPIT SPIDERS.

I don't even know how/why they're getting in but we have a GIANT one (its body is literally the size of my thumb) in the garage that i'm too scared to get close to, which means i can't get to any of our tools because he's built a web across the middle tool shelf. uuuuuugh fuckers.

I HAVE NO IDEA BUT EW SPIDERS STOP. At least the ones we've got are just these fat brown things that aren't like black widows or wolf spiders. Dad's house had wolf spiders forever and OH GOD THE TERROR.

And how are there so many of them??! What are they eating?? Wait maybe I shouldn't ask that... >.> If you find a good way to get rid of them let me know because so far the only option I've heard is to call an exterminator but ew I hate those chemicals they spray... we'll see how long my opposition to chemicals outweighs my terror of eight-legged creepers.

That sucks about not having a dryer, but that is the most awesome way to put it XD

haha thanks. No dryer does suck but it would be worse if the outside wasn't conveniently 90+ degrees.

Good luck with the unpacking! And be brave about the spiders, I'm sure human beings are equipped to overpower them:))

Oh, I liked Spiderman too, contrary to ALL my expectations. Maybe the first three movies cemented the spiderman suck for me, but Andrew Garfield was quite a break from the tradition of fail *nods of approval*
