Crazily Acquainted w/ Arachnid Weaver

Welcome back to another Crazily Acquainted!  Today we have Arachnid Weaver as our guest.  Arachnid’s blog is a hilarious blog that addresses different topics at random (or so it seems).  Let’s get on with the interview!

Why did you decide to have a blog?

I started my first blog because I was told to. I started my second blog, which was a book blog and has since disappeared, because I passionately hated a particular book and I had to do something about it. The current blog was started to promote our book, Slugventures: The Adventures of a Slug.

 

Why did you choose the name?

The WebWeavers was decided upon because it sticks with our whole spider theme.

 

What do you write about/plan to write about?

We write about a whole manner of things and the topics are completely random, therefore nothing is really planned. Our blog is mainly a comedy blog, although that was not the initial intention. We have received comments along the lines of the following:

“Love your humor.”

“Funny.”

“You must be a comedian’s dream.”

“Will you marry me?”

Well, I must say the last one is a bit different, but the first three are true!

 

Do you prefer writing seriously or crazily?

Seriously. Totally. Very, very serious. This isn’t sarcastic at all.

(P.S. If you missed this, which I doubt you did as I was being very obvious, the previous section was very, very sarcastic.)

 

What was the hardest part about starting your blog?

Figuring out how to work a blog.

That covered it all. 😉

Is Arachnid your real name or a pseudonym?

Arachnid Weaver is definitely my real name and not a pseudonym. I have no idea why people don’t believe me. I insist it’s true.

 

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Chocolate with chocolate chips and chocolate truffles and chocolate syrup with an extra dash of chocolate. I also like whipped cream (which is basically warm ice cream).

No coffee again!! 

 

Who are some of your favorite bloggers?

MainePaperPusher, authorsinspirations, and It’s Just a Restless Feeling.

 

Which state out of the ___ you’ve been to has been your favorite?

My favorite state is plasma, but I’m partial to liquids as well. Can’t say I’ve been to either. Solid is sort of boring, though.

I think I’m dying with laughter.  Guys, this is the best!! (In case you didn’t notice, I didn’t specify that it had to be a State in the USA.)

 

Do you two share a blog?

Technically, yes. But that’s not the verb I would’ve chosen.

For example, if Little Freddy’s mother forced him to share his toy fire truck with Tommy, it’s still Freddy’s toy and he doesn’t want to have Tommy play with it.

With our blog, it’s more like coexisting on the same plane. It’s like a symbiotic relationship with the blog.

 

What is your favorite part of blogging?

Writing!

Exactly!

What is life like living around unicorns?

Well, I don’t actually live around unicorns. If one were to go to Unicornia, one would never return to Earth, nor would they ever want to. But Unicornia is lacking in certain amenities that Earth possesses, including The Internet, and without The Internet, I would not be doing this interrogation. I do go over the details of living around unicorns on unicornia2016.wordpress.com.

Hmm, I feel bad for interrogating you.  But it was such fun!

 

Are octopi cuddly?

This is something you’d have to ask Spinette. I refrain from touching them.

Ah!  I wanted to know!

Luis Spiderweb

‘Hi!  I’m Luis, the Garden Spider.  I am bored, since no prey has come to my web since two days ago.  But thankfully, I am not hungry.  I’m writing this so someone somewhere knows about my life.

I live in this nice garden with my two siblings next door.  George, the oldest is fixing his web now.  Oh, about all that human nonsense about us writing love letters in our webs, why, it’s preposterous!  We just like a little decoration.  Can’t humans realize that?  All right, enough talk about humans.

My sister, Matilda, lives next door as well.  She is a cranky old spider that doesn’t like chatter.  I can’t help it if sometimes I get lonely and must talk.   I even talk to my prey before I kill it, but George tells me that is inhuman.  I assume it is but it keeps me updated with the world.

I enjoy visiting the Orb spiders, they are nice, quiet spiders.  Their webs are bigger then ours but they do not like decorations.  They keep there web simple.  The spiky spiders, or known as Spiny-back Orb Weavers, are contentious neighbors.  They eat your webs when you have a disagreement.  Poor Alvin, one of my other brothers, had to move for that reason.

Another danger for spiders are interested giants, A.K.A, humans.  They think yellow banana spiders (as the insult us by calling us that!) are some of the coolest spiders out there.  But there are those humans who scream like a cat in heat when they come near us.  The saying, ‘they’re more scared of you then you are of them’ are obviously not true for these people.

I think I see a moth coming.  George will probably get it but I must put this paper away.  Maybe someone will publish it and I’ll be famous.  Scratch that thought.  This print is too small for human eyes.  Anyway, I’ll throw this to the wind and see where it takes it.–Luis Spiderweb’

Luis threw the piece of paper and watched it dance away with his eight eyes.

Later that day, a girl skipped over the lawn to get the mail.  On her return trip she knelt to grab a piece of paper.  “Littering!” she grumbled but she paused as she read this remarkable story on the soiled piece of paper.  She smiled as she hurried inside to read it to her siblings.
