A better person

In an effort to become less of a sissy I have decided not to be afraid of spiders. In general not to squeal like a little girl when I see them around my house. This was working really well for a few days until a actually saw a spider. Then not so well.

I've decided that at some point in my past I'd convinced myself that the sight of a spider scares me, so in an effort to reprogram that part of my brain I am leaving a giant scary spider on my work computer desktop. I have to change it every few days so that I don't get used to any one spider. Flickr is a great place for finding spider pictures.

So here's my desktop for today.


Pretty fearsome, huh? I get a little jolt every time I minimize something. Makes the day more .... interesting.
