Our new pet?

This critter has decided to move in with us recently. What shall we call it?

(Click on the picture for a larger version... if you dare...)

In fact, what is it? I mean, I know it's a spider, but...

It doesn't seem to do much but wander around, yawning and stretching...

and occasionally picking its nose...

Seems to have taken a shine to us, though. Maybe it's the reincarnation of Mei-Mei.

The spammers are getting more creative

Here are the subject lines of three four lots of e-mails I just received:
  • "Stray javelin kills promising US sprinter"

  • "Russia launches nuclear plant"

  • "Charred bodies found on White House lawn"

  • "Freak accident causes Tom cruise to be paralysed"

  • "Two-headed baby born in Texas"

  • "Michael Vick escapes from Federal jail" (this one might need a footnote)

  • "Madonnas Former Home Destroyed By Jesus"

More as I get them... maybe it could be a found poem.

[Update: There. That felt better.]
