    ♫When some water comes along,
    You must flip it.
    Before the dish sits out too long,
    You must flip it.
    When nothing's going wrong,
    You must flip it.♫

    Today my A. chalcodes Kate further proved her reputation as a princess brat by stress posing for no discernible reason. With one toe on her water dish as per regulations. Spiders, whaddya gonna do?

    "I'm not coming out of this cup and you can't make me" Mr. Bitey, P. cancerides 4 hours after I put him in his new enclosure, like a dummy I used a catch cup with no holes in it, sigh.

    Honestly, I'll probably just take photos of them once I unpack all of them, I tend to get too caught up in the excitement of actually receiving new spiders lol. But I'll probably have to wait a week or so until clear weather and I hate saying I'm getting 'so and so species' in case some don't make it so I'll just wait until I get them to actually say what I got.

    Arachnophobic colleague spent three shifts asking me about my collection and about tarantulas in general. He went away, did some reading, watched a lot of videos and now says he wants one of his own once he gets over the fear. Feeling proud, so I’m going to get him his first one.

    Yesterday, the dirt was relatively level, and Bulldozer's water dish was only filled with water.

    She even looks guilty.

    Rehoused a couple of Psalmos, my P. cambridgei and P. irminia slings. Still gotta rehouse my B. boehmei and B. hamorii juvies.

    @Anyone who has had a package held at a FedEx, how much earlier (approx.) does it come in at the office opposed to it being shipped to your house? I usually get tarantulas shipped around 10-11, should I expect them to be at the FedEx location @ 8-9 AM?

    I hate having stuff held at my local fedex, for some stupid reason they dont open the customer lobby til 4pm !!!! Its completely ridiculous! I almost lost a live arrival guarantee because of that. And they deliver to my house between 5pm and 8pm. I prefer UPS, they get my package by 630am and call me around 8am to tell me its available for pick up. Plus the only two times i had my box delivered by them to my door the driver I have has been on my neighborhoods route for years so he brings my box by 9am.

    Why so late? I've never heard of one opening that late in the day. Latest I've heard was 9 AM, just checked the one nearest to me and they open at 7:30. Hopefully that means I'll have mine around then.

    Packages usually get delivered to my house at around 3 or 4 PM, both FedEx and USPS. Packages are usually ready for pickup in the morning, meaning like 9 or 10 instead of the afternoon. I started having all my packages held for pickup because I can get them much sooner and the office is only 10 minutes away from my house.

    Got it, I’ll keep my eye out for the tracking earlier on. Hopefully it’ll come by 8-9 AM. Curious to find out what they are and a bit nervous as I’ve never had tarantulas shipped during the winter.

    Since priority one day shipping arrives early in the morning I like to drop my packages right before the last truck comes, so they're only in transit for a few hours. If it's picked up early in the morning the spiders would ideally only be in the box for like 12-14 hours, not bad at all.

    That’s takes some of the stress off. Also knowing that temps. aren’t dropping below 20 help a bit more too after knowing this
