Drowning in a Puddle of Raid

Can anyone tell me what the hell this is?

Whatever it is, it scared the everloving shit out of me! It is now dead in a puddle of Raid. Not quite sure how I'm going to clean it up yet as it is huge!! Bleh! That'll keep me out of the kitchen for a little while.


While talking with Morrigan about this creature that still is on my kitchen floor, she decides to google centipedes as that's what she thinks it is. She then would insist I look at each picture. I guess the real one wasn't enough...

If I have nightmares tonight, I'm so giving her a wakeup call at like 5am.

Here are some of the pictures....

And out of care and respect for those of you that our squeamish, I have put them in the extended entry.

It's... a bug. A very dead bug. so do you think he drowned? And what the hell is that off to the right? Did part of his body fall off whilst drowning? Blech!Gah!Ick!

My vote- centepede. CalTech girl may have to chime in here though.

Excellent costume I must say!

Looks like a centipede to me. It's not shaped right for a millipede....

Welcome to the South :) Where the only thing bigger than the bugs is nothing!

They are house centipedes ...I blogged about them a while back.

They completely and totally freak me out with their ugly creepiness.

They apparently like moisture, so keeping the humidity down at your place should help keep them at bay at least a little bit. I haven't seen any since our massive rains stopped.

EWWWW!!!! See, if you kept your place at 50 degrees like Spurs does you wouldn't have to worry about bugs, it's too cold for them in here :)

The only place I've seen these ugly little fockers was in Atlanta. I ran into a door one night when I flipped on the light to get a drink of water and saw that little bastard...had to replace the door...

We have them up north too. I hate them. They are the one bug that totally creeps me out. I'll have nightmares about them tonight for sure!
