trapped spider

i was just working on my computer when i saw something move out of the corner of my eye. as i turned to look i saw this spider scuttling across the room. i'm not usually too fussed about spiders, i'm not their biggest fan, but i don't turn into a quivering wreck when i see one. still, this dude was pretty big. i trapped it without too much trouble, but for me the trickiest part of the operation is releasing it back into the wild. my usual approach is to take it outside, turn the container upside down, give it a shake, and then quickly retreat. however i'm always worried that the spider will cling on inside, and when i come back into the light it will crawl out the container and, i don't know, start attacking me. i assumed that it was more testy than usual after i forced it to pose for this photograph, so i decided to employ a new technique. this involved placing the vessel on the ground, kicking it over at a legs length, waiting for it crawl into the night, and then quickly picking up my emancipation tools and legging it back in. i suspect i just about beat it in the race back to my flat, although i wouldn't be surprised if i see the same creature, or members from its extended family, as i finish typing this.
