Silverfish. You forgot silverfish. I can deal with roaches, but silverfish send me screaming.

I work in a lab, which is like a private office only with awful furniture, and a lot more X-rays.

I work in a lab too, but since it's a computer science lab, it's a lot more like a bullpen.

I work at a desk that sits at the front of a relatively large office space with the two administrators' private office in the back. So basically I'm the gatekeeper.

I responded with "bullpen" but it was kind of a tossup because it's actually an office with its own door, but I have to share it with two men. Before I came along it was christened the bullpen, so I still call it that. Sometimes we do actually close the door and laugh at the rest of the world (almost every day, actually) and I've been known to put my feet up, but we never smoke cigars.

You forgot "Rosebud".

My preferred style of rap handle is an incongruous place name: "Fresno" and "Sanford" come to mind.

Asking which is the most unpleasant bug is like asking which is the most unpleasant testicle to have bitten by a malnourished terrier.

I work at home so my home office is my home, where I am surrounded by dogs and dog hair. And, except insofar as I "clean" and "keep house" and "take care of the dogs" and "shop" and "run errands" and do all that stuff, I don't really work, like for instance right now I'm posting in bed and petting a dog.

Ode to a Cubicle
O, cubicle! You surround me,

Forehead-high

And batting-lined — acoustical!!

Baffler of sound

Giver of fluorescence!
Protector of privacy
Pushpin-pricked, selflessly
supportive of foreign postal cards
and amusing cookie fortunes
O! My cubicle
Towering, secretive
Without you I must needs surely
Build a fort beneath my desk

I answered cockroach, but what I meant was "Palmetto Bug." Man, you people who have never experienced a 6-inch long flying cockroach that hisses at you have never really lived.

More specifically, you have never really lived within 100 miles of the Gulf Coast.

There was one of those in the basement of my parents' Iowa home. I realized this when it FLEW AT ME IN THE NIGHT.

The shriek woke up my entire family.

See, I've never had cockroach problems (at least in any apartments with my name on the lease), and even though mosquitoes got my vote, I've somehow managed to avoid them the last few summers even though it's Minnesota's State Bird and all that crap. But I've had frequent problems with these tiny little toenail-clipping-sized beige moths that crop up in my apartment every so often, usually hiding in my hand towels. Fuckers.

You forgot the wasp, the bee's evil twin. Twice as painful, and they're too lazy to make honey.

Nice one. If it had been available I'd probably have gone for that. Or any of the horrible variations, like bluebottle or hornet.

I work alone on the first floor of a 3-story building, and I am surrounded by an L-shaped fortress of dark wood and paneling. I love the solitude, but hate getting caught talking to myself (or the radio, or the computer) when someone comes downstairs.

better to worse
When I lived in beautiful, snowy, marijuana-decriminalizing Montreal, I had a private office with a view and a door and everything! But now that I've moved back to California, I have to share an office with another sad, grunting nerd. Why did I move back?

The centipede.
The house centipede, to be specific.
