Pregnant tarantula on the loose in Park Slope

Help, my giant poisonous spider is missing — and she’s pregnant!

A hairy Mexican red rump tarantula named Penelope is on the loose in Park Slope. . . . “She’s mostly active at night and she tends to hide in dark corners,” . . . On the sign, the pet owner asks whoever finds her to put her in a “tupperware bowl” with holes, so she can breathe.

miami heat vs. nets $967.80!!


last night i was on the phone with a friend when a call from an 800 number beeped in.  assuming it was a telemarketer i ignored the call.  earlier today, i realized that i had a message from the 800# call last night.  it was katelin from ticketmaster.  she wanted to verify that i had authorized a $967.80 debit card charge for tickets to the miami heat / nets game last evening.

the first question that came to mind was, is that baseball or basketball?  the next thought i had was, why would i authorize a charge for $967.80 when i had less than $500 in my bank account?

i now have negative $457.
