Ok, maybe the title is a little overly-dramatic, but my bed is now host to bed bugs. =( Yuck yuck yuck yuck yuck. Apparently, not only has my entire apartment building has been experiencing this gross and unpleasant problem, all of San Francisco has had a bed bug outbreak. I have decided, based upon many irritating experiences as of late, that this is the result of too many god damn hippies and hobos in this city. I won't go into to that now because I will not stop ranting for a good 10 pages about why I hate hippies and hobos. Perhaps we'll save that one for a rainy day.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand, I woke up yesterday with 5 giant, swollen (not to mention extremely itchy) bites on my left arm.
About a week ago, I started breaking out on my face at work. I thought that perhaps it was just from stress or something, until the red marks started to itch really bad. I was in denial about bed bugs, and just assumed that they were gnat bites (because I have a very similar reaction to them - big, swollen, itchy, red bites) But no, today the Exterminator confirmed it. Bed Bugs. Which means, this thing --->
had been crawling on my face! Gross gross vomit vomit everywhere.
Thank god we have an extra bed in our apartment. All be it a little uncomfortable, I'd rather be a little stiff in the morning than have obtained a million more bug bites.
Anyway, I realize this post has nothing to do with illustration, but I wanted to fill you in on what I've been dealing with the past week - which may also explain why I haven't been doing a whole lot of blogging.
