Bug in the Bedroom

Oct 4, 2006

So last night I'm playing Railroad Tycoon 3 on my computer (a very fun game by the way; I highly recommend it). After wrapping up a scenario in my current campaign, I turn off my computer and swivel my chair around to get up. And what do I see on my wall? One gigantic bug. This thing totally freaked me out. I believe it's a mosquito (its body certainly looked like one, though you can't tell that from the picture), but I'm not entirely sure. I made an initial attempt to suck it up with our vacuum cleaner, but I failed miserably. As a result, it began flying about the room, adding to the fright level considerably. After a few more unsuccessful attempts, I finally sucked it up to its doom. Needless to say, going to bed last night was much more anxiety inducing than normal.

Update: This insect looks it might be a Crane fly (can anyone confirm this?). Creepy.
