Right after I posted and googled " 'bug' AND 'apartment' AND 'kill' " the beast -- or at least, a beast appeared on the ceiling. I leapt into action and vacuumed that sucker up. Now I'm left contemplating calling an exterminator tomorrow and whatever friends and family that asshole left in my apartment. I've already windexed the whole kitchen and turned my heat off because wikipedia says cockroaches thrive in warmer temperatures.
I can't stop eyeing the vacuum -- as if the stupid bug is going to come flying out of the machine and spurt a thousand baby cockroaches out into my apartment.
I'm never going to sleep tonight. And it's already freezing in here.
