I love spiders. I’m also freaking terrified of them. How those two things can be simultaneously true is a mystery to me, but many things are mysteries to me. I mean, look at this jumping spider! It’s adorable! (Appropriately, I got this photo from the Spiders Are Adorable blog.) And I’m generally okay with jumping spiders, ’cause they’re tiny. Anything bigger, though, and, not gonna lie, I’ll be yelling for the hubby to come take it outside. Not kill it, because I don’t want to kill spiders, because I really do love them…just put them somewhere where I’m not.

She can be found on Twitter (@eileenmaksym) squeeing over her favorite shows, most of which involve famous detectives, dashing time travelers, and creatures that are never, ever referred to as zombies.
