LISTER: OK. I'm here... What's the beef?
HOLLY: We've got a visitor.
LISTER: What?
HOLLY: A pod arrived about 20 minutes ago. Something was in it, but it's
broken free.
LISTER: Any ideas?
HOLLY: Well, I don't want to spread any panic or alarm.
LISTER: Whaddya mean, you don't wanna spread panic and alarm?
HOLLY: Well, you've always had this thing against tarantulas, haven't
you?
LISTER: (Worried) Tarantulas?
HOLLY: I mean that you've never been overly fond of them as a species,
have you?
LISTER: Well, no.
HOLLY: And the prospect of waking up and finding one crawling over your
clammy, naked, helpless body has always filled you with a kind of cold
dread?
LISTER: Well, yeah. Wotya trying to say to me, Holly?
HOLLY: I'm saying it might not be your night.


Oddly enough two nights ago I did have a spider run up my thigh, across my belly and chest and off my arm before I could sweep him (her?) off the bed. She (he?) now has a little nest up near the ceiling...

We have a weather guy in Detroit. He was clearly having an asthma attack while doing the forecast. He trooped though it and did well.

That's a professional, not this flamer.

What a sissy.

Just remembered one situation that happened to me. Was in the pool doing a training scuba dive. My equipment had been out on the patio for a while. I had a inflatable tube used for emergency signaling. Anyway I took that and proceeded to blow air into it through a valve. Just then a cockroach crawled out of the mouthpiece and into my mouth.

I cussed a little and choked on water I ingested. I sure didn't scream like this guy.

Welcome to Florida where the cockroaches (so-called "Palmetto bugs") are so big, kids make 'em into pets.

I read the book "Descent into Darkness". The author was a Navy salvage diver during WWII, and dove on the wrecks at Pearl Harbor. You needed nerves of steel to do this work. Yet he was deathly afraid of spiders. On one dive, he had to use a spare suit and helmet, while his was being repaired. After being lowered to the worksite, a spider suddenly appeared inside his helmet, and started crawling around. He was powerless to do anything about it. He panicked, and it nearly cost him his life.

This guy had probably done a good job of "acting straight", that is, until the cockroach showed up.

A spider in your helmet at depth is a bit different than a bug running across the floor.

(except then you may have a mess on the bottom of your shoe)

Yeah, that's my issue. And then you carry that disease onto your carpet or whatever. In the home, I'll either get them in the dustpan and take them far out into the alley so they don't come back, or I'll pick them up with toilet paper and flush them. I swatted one with a newspaper and the damn thing exploded. It all depends on what's close to hand when I see one. I hate roaches, but I don't run from them. I don't rest until they are dead or gone. One time, I took everything out of the closet because I saw one go in there, and I still didn't find him. So, I put everything back in. When I went to put the last pair of jeans back in--which had been the first thing I had taken out--he came running out from inside them. I think that one I did squash, since I wasn't letting him back in the closet to find a new hiding spot.

If you can't relate to having that many in your home, you're lucky. But, that's Texas for ya. It's hard to get rid of them.

By the way, if I was on camera and there was a roach on me, I probably would step on it. Instead of squealing like this guy, I'd have to refrain from doing the Corey Feldman from Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. "Die! Die! Die! Die!"

My husband (who used to work in the restaurant industry...eww) told me that if I ever saw a roach, I shouldn't step on it. He said eggs could get all over the sole of your shoes and you'd track them with you till they fell off.

It's ironic that it's called a "cock" roach. After watching this I get the impression that this weather man has some experience with that sort of thing.

Har-har -- I genuinely feel sorry for the guy, although his reactions are hilarious. This fellow is one of the local weathermen for the Sarasota county area, which is my AO.

He started about a year ago, and it was pretty obvious right off that he was quite gay, but the main thing is that he, as well as senior weatherman at SNN Ch.6 David Karnes, do a terrific job reporting the weather. Any other propensities don't detract from that.
