What kind of spider is this?

It's been sitting almost motionless on my wall (it's alive, as I'll see it move every so often) for about five days now. As far as I can see, it doesn't spin webs. It's only about a half-inch long and about as big around as a penny or a nickel. It just kind of sits there most of the time, with its two front legs raised up, as though saying "You want a piece of me, punk?"

I know it's not a brown recluse, because I've seen those and they're considerably larger - but even the juvenile ones have the tell-tale "violin" mark on their cephalothorax - this guy doesn't have any markings.

But I'm not sure what kind it is. What kind of spider is this?

Update:

I'm in central Texas by the way.

Update 2:

And he seems to be pretty harmless... just sits there behind my TV... so I don't really want to kill it. Perhaps I'll release it outside...

Update 3:

Well, I found out it was a jumping spider (of some sort). I captured it and released it outside.

    Its the infamous Great Texan Barking Spider.

    It is pretty harmless, except you will not want to heed it when it asks you to "Pull my finger".
