So much for me getting an early night - I'm (pun intended) buzzing too much from being scared shitless.

Just went to bed and threw the duvet over myself. Except I could hear this odd buzzing noise and I could see a LARGE dark shape moving across the duvet. It didn't take me long to realise that there was a large stingy insect of doom within inches of my face, which if it hadn't started buzzing, I wouldn't have realised was there cos it was dark.

Leaping out of bed in terror, I quickly threw the duvet over it to trap it whilst I made a bee line for the light switch. Upon carefully opening the duvet, I discovered a fucking HUGE bee. Or at least I guess it was a bee - except it looked far too large to be a bee. I guess it might have been a queen. After many minutes of crapping myself, I decided to be cunning and brave and trapping it once more within the confines of the duvet, I took the duvet downstairs and shook it lots outside.

Unfortunately I lost track of where the damn thing was, but I couldn't see it anywhere upon the duvet so I gave up and brought the duvet inside and put it well away from my intending sleeping place.

Of course now I can't get back to sleep for fear that it isn't outside and from the adreline. What is scaring me the most, is that I've no idea how it got inside in the first place and that if it hadn't buzzed I wouldn't have noticed it and would have gone to sleep. It could have stung me to death whilst I snored away happily to myself. It could have been there since the previous night as I'd not touched the duvet since then. Eeep.

I think I shall fire up something on the PS2 and kill lots of things.

Meep!
aww babe... i had a similar horrid experience with a wasp once. i couldn't sleep all night :(

*hug*

I nearly didn't go to sleep at all. I dozed for ages with the light still on and eventually calmed down enough to try sleeping with the light off.

Still - it's dead now. Squish! Squish! Squish!

ewww.....

My personal worst encounters:

Wondering why my sock was pulling hairs on my toes (yes, I'm admitting to having little hairs on my toes, but I'm NOT a hobbit) - then finding out it was actually a wasp that had got in the sock when it had been drying on the line, and was busily stinging me!!!!

Going to bed, half an hour later, unable to sleep, glancing up at the mosquito net that surrounds the bed, and realising there was an ENORMOUS spider hanging onto the inside of it, less than a metre from my head!!!

*shudder*
