creepy crawler things

A lady called to let me know that when making pine cone ornaments, it is
a good idea to put them in the oven at 200 degrees for about a half hour
"to kill the creepy crawler things that live in the pine cones."

And speaking of creepy crawlies, this morning on my desk (on my banana!)
was crawling one of those little green spiders that builds the webs in
the space where wall meets ceiling. Steve and I call them "intruders." I
put him outside. I felt bad about it but I didn't know any better, safer
