Normal It's official: my creepy insect story tops yours

So I just moved into a new place and in the middle of the first night I slept there I was awakened by my cat who was freaking out and knocking boxes over and stuff. So I turned on the light, rolled over in bed and there on the pillow next to me was a scorpion staring at me.

A scorpion. In my bed. On my pillow.

I found a centipede in my bed, but this scorpion story definitely tops mine.

I have my annual summertime centipede story.

Tuesday night, around 3:30am, I am awakened by Mia stretched out across me, with her front paws glued to my wall. I turn on the light to see what she's pawing so furiously at. Turns out there is a gigantic centipede about to crawl under my U2 Popmart poster. I gently moved her out of the way, killed it myself, then petted her and praised her for being mommy's guard cat.

If I hadn't killed it she would have knocked it down into my bed.

*naive aussie who only has killer spiders ahead*

Are all scorpions poisonous? They freak me out with their swishy taily bits and things. Eugh. And your centipedes? They're poisonous too? As well as freaky arsed with their 28 million legs.

scorpions only sting when provoked.
the real beasts in our desert are rattlers.
but even they will warn you first.
