Now that we’re well into October, it’s time to start focusing on that all-important holiday: Christmas. Wait, that’s too soon. Don’t focus on Christmas yet. Stop focusing on Christmas!

It’s time to start focusing on Halloween, which has always been one of my personal favorites. I love when the spooky things come out, like vampires, werewolves, that big troll from Ernest Scared Stupid, and … SPIDERS!!!

Most people are completely freaked out by spiders, but I’ve heard others argue that they’re wonderful creatures who create “works of art” through their webs.

It made me wonder if some spiders wear french berets and reassure each other of their importance to the creative world. They might be a bunch of pretentious jerks for all we know.

Then I remembered that Olive likes to eat spiders. Webbing and all. So in the world of bugs, spiders might be creative geniuses, but in the world of cats, they’re an afternoon snack. Mwa ha ha ha haaaaa.
