    Well it's kinda hard to tell, but it looks like a flea to me.

    There's probably more.... they like your blood, you should look around make sure there isn;t an infestation. Get some raid for fleas I guess.

    alot of stores carry "flea bombs" in or near their pet departments.
    or we could just put a flea collar on you ;P

    I've gotten fleas in my house before. If you live next door to a house with pets, often you'll find fleas in your house. They might also be infesting rodents around the yard.

    Here's some info on ridding them: http://www.catsofaustralia.com/fleasgetridof.htm

    i mean, if they were outside my bedroom, i'd totally go nuts on spraying them with raids, but im not sure if i can use it on my bed and sleep on it after.
