    Total bollocks.

    I was in a lovely old fashioned telephone box on Dartmoor the other day after dark. It was partially hidden but the light was still working and I could see through the windows that it was wall to wall spider webs.

    The door made a noise like velcro parting when I opened it and once inside I could barely move without brushing into the webs. There were big house spiders (tegeneria sp.) in all directions, including several above me.

    The phone itself was shrouded in silk, amidst which sat the biggest female house spider I`ve ever seen. For a second I imagined what would happen if the door was stuck and I had to try and call out.. the spider would surely scuttle up the cable towards my open mouth...

    I was so angry when my girlfriend killed my pet spider, "Toby Maguire", Well not really a pet but was a wolf spider that lived in the corner of our bedroom window. She warned me to move him but I liked him where he was. Poor Toby, I still haven`t fully forgiven her.

    Yes, anytime I find a spider it`s in the warmest, wettest place of all. Like in a breezy air passage, where they can catch flying things.

    It is a rather unpleasant thought, but one, it seems, which is most probably not based in fact:

    I find the occasional spider in my bed maybe twice a year. I`m a light sleeper and I can guarantee I have never had anything in my mouth I did not want.

    I was told this when I was younger, but instead I decided to look it up like a smart person and saw it was BS.
