2011, Day 269 - Bright and shiny

You know that feeling you get when you put on new fresh pajamas and they're comfortable and clean and you're so happy?  I wonder if that is how spiders feel after the molt.  As they grow and their exoskeleton gets tight do they feel like we do when we try to get back into our summer wardrobe after a slumberous winter?  No matter how they feel their colors are so much more vibrant after a molt.

This guy is my friend, he built a web by a lamp next to my sofa.  I generally don't bother the spiders in the house, if they build a web in an out-of-the-way location I leave them be.  Unfortunately I think I will have to relocate this one soon.  His web building is getting out of hand, he doesn't have a home so much as an estate and the leavings of meals past are getting out of control.  Oh well, when I feel more motivated I will find him a more suitable place to live.
