one reason why i shouldn't live alone:

BUGS (or, crawly things in general).

wasp-y things, crickets, silverfish, lizards, especially cockroaches. i'm terrified of them. and just the thought of suffering the presence of any of the above by myself, all alone, is terrible.

luckily, maribelle, being the ferocious little kitten that she is, just saved my life by detecting an enormous cockroach that was crawling on the ceiling next to my bed. the knowledge of its hardiness and dirtiness makes my skin crawl. i'll probably never get back to sleep from the fear of this bully's cockroach friends lurking around somewhere, unseen.

FUCK.

when i moved into my first house after living in the dorms, our first night there, i saw two2! cockroaches. at the time, my bed hadn't been delivered yet, so i slept on a mattress in the middle of the floor with lamps on around me (because light makes bugs scatter, right?) with a can of bug spray next to me. definitely one of my top 3 worst-night-sleeps ever.

i can't believe you included lizards. lizards are the only thing that god has ever done right. they have been around FOREVER. ok, not as long as cockroaches probably but cockroaches really, truly are disgusting. lizards rule.

soooo. about a month ago I came home from houston and there was a total roach orgy going on in and above my bed. GROSS. once they have penetrated they are stuck. so if you try to smash them in the act than they will run around the room still having sex. it is CrAzY.
also, i'm with jesse. lizards rule. THEY EAT ROACHES!
