It's Freakin' Finally Friday

Yay! It's Friday Frag time! All the silly fragments from the week that can't stand alone in their own post have a home on Fraggin' Friday.

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Link up with your frags at Half-Past Kisin' Time!
Frag #1
Hubby got a very bad bacterial skin infection called cellulitis that he contracted from a spider bite. It hit very quickly, overnight and caused the back of his leg, near his ankle, to be all red and painful and hot. At first I thought he was just being a baby about it he had it resting on the metal bar of a chair for too long, but then I googled the symptoms and found they were similar to a blood clot. I made him go to urgent care and fortunately it wasn't a clot, but this skin infection is serious enough that they told him if it didn't improve by the next day he would have to go into the hospital.

Apparently, spiders carry the bacteria for this and it's common to contract it from a spider bite, although you can get it from any open sore or scratch. He responded to the antibiotics well though, so he'll be fine. Except that now he's convinced the spiders of the world are out to get him. I think there's something to that though, because twice he killed a spider and it was a female and baby spiders started spewing out of it and crawling everywhere like a scene from a horror movie. Twice! I've decided I'm not going to sit too near him when we're outside lest I incur the wrath of the spiders too!

Has anyone heard of It's another crowd sourcing site where you can submit a graphics need and graphic artists from all over the world submit their ideas to you and you pick the one you like the best. You can use them for logos, website layout, and any other graphic you need.

The company I work for has two projects for which they need logos so we submitted the projects to Designcrowd and received some amazing logo designs. It's inspiring to see that kind of talent and to think that all the designer has to go on is our description of what we want. And they all interpret it so differently. It's really quite amazing.

Lastly, a comic inspired by my husband as he searched through his sock drawer for two matching socks:

Have a great weekend!

Yes spider bites can be very serious. Thankfully you caught it in time.

Hope hubby is feeling better soon! Love the sock Match! If only it were that easy!

I hope you don't live in Brown recluse territory, the worst! When we moved back here I finally tossed the unmatched sock in my unmatched bag. I figured if I didn't find them during a move.....they had gone missing. Now a year later I have a new unmatched bag going.

Oh, so glad your husband responded well to the antibiotics. That is very scary indeed. Love the cartoon, how funny! Happy weekend!

I have a terrible history with spiders and have been hospitalized 3 times after bites.
I really hate those suckers. I hope your husband heals quickly.
I am going to have to try that site. I could use a few graghics.
I hope your week is off to a good start.
