HNT - Spiders

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

“Will you walk into my parlor?" said the Spider to the Fly;
"'Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy”

~ Mary Howitt

Halloween. It's likely my least favorite, highly celebrated "holiday." It is filled with all of kinds of heebie-jeebies and anxiety provoking elements. I hate to be scared - hate things/people jumping out at me - I can't even watch a horror flick without covering my eyes 92.7% of the time! Imagine my horror at learning HNT would have a Halloween theme this week!

And spiders? They seem to be a favorite Halloween decoration. They lurk on those store bought webs, posing as the harmless plastic variety, just waiting to attack! (EDIT: Apparently I misread something imagined there was an HNT Halloween theme and covered myself in these creepy spiders unnecessarily!! Now I really hate them and I feel foolish!)


Well, maybe the orange spiders aren't so bad ... *CLICK*

Creepy and sexy at the same time. Happy HNT! Our contribution is posting at midnight MDT.

Spiders have a tendency to freak me out too...

There's a theme this week?

Knight said...

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the costumes. I love horror movies. I don't like getting scared but I love scaring the crap out of other people. I REALLY love spiders. Well, now I do. They look so friendly.

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

I've successfully ignored Halloween for quite some time now.

Though I could get used to those kind of spiders. :) Love the theme.

Vixen said...

That's not funny. I am terrified of spiders. And when your page loaded I had a mini panic attack.

Fake is ok. Esp the orange one. ;)

happyHNT (and you participating to a theme you thought there was, only shows how committed you are to hnt, you earn brownie points, in my book anyways)

katherine. said...

Evening said...

Ha! Looks great!

I did the theme thing, too. LOL I just did it b/c I wanted to though. I *heart* halloween. :D

Mariposa said...

What are those little creepy things doing in your sexy body?!

But, the orange spider is awesome!

Matt-Man said...

HA. Classic. Nice job. Cheers Dana!!

Anonymous said...

if I could have a super power right now it'd be to be able to turn into that southern most spider!

Jay said...

Normally I don't like spiders at all. But, I like THOSE spiders!

~c said...

OhMy!.... Very sexy..

Have a great HNT!

Adam Apple said...

Lucky ol' spiders, particularly the orange one. If it makes you feel any better, I went with a Halloween theme this week as well, even though there wasn't any 'official' theme.

Happy HNT!

Amorous Rocker said...

Eek! Lucky spiders. ;) I seriously dislike spiders though, ick. Happy HNT!

Mike said...

I`m not too keen on spiders myself, but i`m always willing to lend a hand to remove such spiders from someone as lovely as you ;)
Great pictures and idea.
A very HHNT

An Artist Exposed said...

This is the first - and probably the only - time in my life that I have been jealous of an orange spider. HHNT!

Anonymous said...

Wonder what spider man would think? He would love to be there for sure. HHNT!

Another Suburban Mom said...

You give me the willies in a good way! However, I am still afraid of spiders.

HHNT!

Nicey said...

MMM nice spiders by the way !!
Over here in the UK we don't quite celebrate Halloween as much as you guys, enjoy
Laters

Nicey

Dana said...

G & S, sexy creepy? I guess that's a good thing! *wink*

Os, uhhhh ... clearly I am a bit confused, and I put those damn spiders on me for nothing!

Knight, these were terribly nosey spiders ...

Dana said...

Ms. I, I try to ignore it but when you've got a kidlet it's a little more difficult to ignore!

Vixen, I had a mini panic attack putting the darn things on me!

Kat, creepy-crawlies *shudder*

Dana said...

Evening, and the creepy spiders were all for nothing!

FF, whew! Another theme-er! Now I don't feel so alone!

Mariposa, it seemed like a good idea at the time!

Dana said...

Matt-Man, classic spiders?

SS, would that make you Spider Man?

Jay, these were a bit more friendly than most spiders!

Dana said...

~c, thank you!

Adam, and I thank you for flashing your pumpkin!

Amorous, spiders and I don't normally get along very well!

Dana said...

Mike, would you be willing to kill these darn things? I don't want to see them again!

Artist, thank goodness the orange spider was a friendly one!

Kannon7, I think Spider Man might attempt to lure me into his web!

Dana said...

ASM, spiders are probably my greatest fear - as unreasonable as it is!

Nicey, I don't think anyone outside of North America considers this a holiday and I think the rest of the world got it right!

Anonymous said...

Spiders look rather cute on you, particularly the ones of the orange variety. Remind me to tell you the story one day of the bathroom in a state park I once visited....it was infested with daddy long-legs spiders. Thousands of them! {shudder}

Anyway...HHNT to you!

Anonymous said...

I love this! Where did you get the orange one tho? Ive never seen those in stores !LOL

Mike said...

Yup more than willing to do that just for you ;)

buffalodick said...

I don't like spiders, but I like these spiders...

As American as Apple Pie said...

My first thought when that popped up was "God! I hope those aren't real". Now, I knew no one in their right mind would willingly put REAL spiders on themselves...but that's where my brain went.

You did a good job arranging them. Pretty cute actually.

tt said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!! Spiders totally creep me out! however.....on you they look less gross. Is that a complement?? Not sure.
Can I just say...I'm completely jealous of your boobs!! They don't hide under your armpits when you lay down. LMAO!!
Hussy!

Leighann said...

You're a trained killer and Halloween heebie jeebies freak you out? Explain that to me, wouldja?

*giggle*

Karl said...

Good Morning Dana,

That's one way to get you on the web or is that the web on you;)

Perfect angle for the orange shot.

Average Chick said...

Ahhh to be one of those spiders ;)

Great theme!! Thank goodness they are plastic!!

HHNT!!

P. and S. said...

I can't say we are big fans of spiders, but somehow they look great on you...perhaps it is the nekkidness that helps.

Happy HNT!

Real Live Lesbian said...

You're a human web! Lucky spiders!

Bina said...

Ha Ha! I LOVE it!

Lilly said...

Well, it is quite a nice photo!

I hate horror movies too, I won't watch them anymore. Hated the stupid haunted house thingies my friends dragged me to in HS and college, people jumping out at me would literally scare the piss outta me.

Karen said...

Blogger hates me and deleted my last comment. So...long story short...

Great photo. I hate scary movies. I like little kids in costume.

Lu' said...

I thought maybe you'd be with my blanket. OK that orange spider shot is just to fuckin cool !

Dana said...

Swingerwife, *shudders* I do NOT want to hear that story!!

SCW, I was just lucky (?) to find an ENTIRE bag of spiders, both orange and black!

Mike, whew!

Dana said...

Buff, it seems arachnophobia is quite prevalent!

Apple, ummmm ... are you CRAZY?? Real spiders? GACK!!! And I didn't arrange them you silly, I couldn't even look at them!

tt, less gross when discussing spiders qualifies as a compliment.

Dana said...

Leighann, the Army didn't train me on how to kill the Texas Chain Saw murderer!!

Karl, *giggle* That little orange guy was a bit of a challenge!

Average, those spiders are now in the trash - do you still want to be one?? *wink*

Flyinfox_SATX said...

Oh yeah? Well, Pick a spider...any one of them...yeah even the red one...go ahead..I'll wait.....

Got it? Good! That is the spider I want to be!

Happy HNT to ya!

Dana said...

P & S, nor am I a big fan of the eight-legged terrors!

RLL, I thought about putting some of that manufactured web on me first but EEUUUWWWW!

Bina, what are a few spiders among friends?

Jennybean said...

creepy but sexy...

HHNH

Nolens Volens said...

Damn! You got me there in the heart with a line from Mary Howitt in connection wirh youe HNT pictures! :) HHNT!

Dana said...

Lilly, YIPPEE!! Another scare-hater!

Karen, I wish Halloween had an age limit - to be celebrated only by those 10 and younger!

Lu, I'd have been HIDING under your blanket if it were here!

Dana said...

Flyinfox, hmmmm ... there are so many to choose from! I just can't decide!!

Jennybean, creepy but sexy seems to be a common thought.

Nolens Volens, are you my fly??

Bond said...

See now Halloween is my FAVORITE HOLIDAY of them all!

So I guess our plans to run away and have a torrid love affair is off...

OOOO is there a spider crawling out of your belly button?

Pronto said...

yeah, the orange spider is way, way, way good.

happy half-nekkid halloween !

Lucia said...

very nicely (and creepily) done! love the orange spider ;-)

HHNT!

BTExpress said...

Lucky spiders, especially the orange one. Happy HNT!

Anonymous said...

Hmmmm, odd. I've never had the urge to lick spiders off anyone before.

;)

not2shy said...

No need to feel foolish. As I understand it, we all do whatever we want for HNT.

Personally, I'm as happy to admire your bravery as your breast.

Dana said...

Bond, leave it to you to ruin our cyber love affair! And all over some silly pumpkins and ghosts!

Pronto, the orange spider was my favorite of them all!

Lucia, I think I've been called creepy far too many times today *wink*

Dana said...

BTE, just wait! Your boobie tribute is coming up next week!

Giacomo, EEUUWWW! Now that is creepy! OK, maybe not with the plastic spiders, but still!

not2shy, putting spiders (even the fake ones) all over myself did require TONS of bravery!

Stephanie said...

normally I hate spiders, but this is pretty awesome
Great photo
HHNT :)

Big Kahuna said...

Orange Spiders were always my favorite !!

Happy Halloween and HNT there Dana!

Hetero-Sapphic said...

WOW! I'm not fan of spiders either! You have way with them. :)

HHNT!

Ms. Lily said...

I am a girl, I hate spiders, but on you they work. Especially, in the clicky!
Happy Halloween & HNT!!

Turnbaby said...

Ah---the orange one--so perky a pose;-)

fabsterrant said...

Dana, ty for your kind thoughts. Ohh mmyy you sizzeled one of'em, the red one will never be the same.

Ro said...

Such dedication to the cause!

What I really want to know, though, is whether the spider was that colour before it found its way to your nipple or whether it's just very embarrassed ...

Happy HNT :)

d2b said...

When it's halloween, why do you feel like a fool to make a Halloween theme?

I think the spider pictures rocks ;)

Happy Halloween and HNT!!!

Rage said...

Don't feel foolish, I did a halloween themed HNT too. In fact, a lot of people did.

I like the spiders and your click-thru!

Happy HNT!

Maeve said...

That orange spider seems to be confortable!

doggybloggy said...

I guess I am like your husband...your nudity bores me...sorry

garbonzo said...

Oh to be a happy orange spider!
HHNT!

Dana said...

Stephanie, thank you!

Kahuna, the orange spider was mush kinder than those darn black ones!

Hetero-Sapphic, I'm just glad I am done with them.

Dana said...

Ms. Lily, spiders *shudders*

Turnbaby, a perky spider?!

fabsterrant, I'd like to smush all of them!

Dana said...

Ro, are you implying that my nipples are embarrassing? *wink*

d2b, I just felt foolish for thinking there was a theme - and plastering that on my blog - when it was really a misread on my part.

Rage, yes - as it turns out it was not the end of the world, was it?

Dana said...

Maeve, he just perched there quite nicely!

Doggy, *sticks tongue out* Meanie!

Garbanzo, you never imagined you'd want to be orange, did you?

Biscuit said...

I like your spiders, although the real ones give me the oogies!
