Yesterday I was making dinner and John was yelling to me about some spider with a million legs. I told him I was kind of busy right now and really I wasn't all that concerned.
Later John and I were playing Monopoly on the floor when this crawled on by:

We do not know what this thing is. We do not know how it got in the house. The 1 1/2 inch body is almost transparent has an awful lot of really long legs! We made Peter catch it in a jar and one of the antenna came off and was twitching all over our Monopoly board. Nasty doesn't even begin to describe it. It moved completely fluidly, kind of reminding me of John's Hexbug he got recently. So, so creepy.

Rebecca was not impressed when she learned we found it just crawling across our family room floor. This was how I found her later that night:

Because just being on the bed isn't good enough she was taking extra precautions.
I love it.

That is a house centipede. I had never seen one until I moved to Connecticut. I screamed the first time I saw one. They are very weird looking, but can't hurt you!
