Déjà Vu

the explanation given by Trinity in the matrix as to why we experience déjà vu, is one of the best i have heard.
a déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.
Neo explains that he saw a black cat go by, and then he saw another one go by that looked just like it. when asked was it the same cat, he says it might have been, but he wasn't sure.

the same feeling happened to me, but replace the black cats with spiders. sitting watching an episode of the X-files, i heard a scuttling across the floor, right beside the skirting. moving, at quite some speed was one of the biggest spiders i've seen of late. he stopped when i eyeballed him and was promptly caught in a glass. this did not please him, as he was one of the angriest little arachnids i have come across. usually they move a little under a glass but this one was repeatedly having a go at the edge trying to budge it! he was placed outside and the x-files continued.

fast forward 2 nights. sitting in the same seat, at the same angle, watching another episode of the x-files, there was a scuttling sound. in the same location, as before moving at pretty much the same speed was another spider of roughly the same size, running in the same direction as the one two nights previous. that feeling of déjà vu, swept over me (understandably) and i wondered was it a glitch in the matrix, and if it was what had changed? possibly it was watching too many x-files, a rift in the space-time continuum had opened which allowed creepy crawlies to quantum leap wherever they want (probably not as the spider would have then quantum leapt form underneath the glass). the most likely explanation though was that loft hatch was open as i had been doing a bit of diy up there.

the spider ran into Bulbgirl's shoe. now back from Barcelona, Bulbgirl, was happy about sharing her footwear with something that had seven more legs than herself but not before i snapped a couple of photos of him, before depositing him safely outside.
