Uninvited guest last night.56k?

So I am sound asleep last night when I am awoke by a strange sensation on my ear. My hand unconsciously slaps down on my face. Completly expecting to smash a small spider or something similar I am very surprised to feel a large lump on the side of my head. That second I also feel a sharp sting. I instantly grab and toss whatever is on my face across the room.
"Great, I've been bit by a big ass spider", I thought. Then it dawns on me the "thud" I heard when I tossed the "thing" was no sound any spider I have ever seen would make.

I jump up and turn the light on. Looking around I dont see anything.. I grab a flashlight and look closer.Then I see it. OHHH DAMMMNN... This was on my face gnawing all inch inch and a half of it.... potato bug from hell!

Re: Uninvited guest last night.

no, still have roaches here. the potato bug is a bit rare in my experiences. come to think of it i dont think i have seen any since i moved to sacramento, so maybe its a costal bug.

edit: my above statement makes it sound like i live in a roach infested building
