Jess is your current cruise director

Hey All,

I am going to be mega-busy the next two weeks running hither and thither. I’ve appointed Bedbugger Jess, the author of the famous Craigslist post, “An Open Letter to my Bed Bugs,” as your interim host. If you have a concern or question, you can email her at

jess at (cool, no?)

So we are not leaving you high and dry with nothing to read during this time. Besides Jess, there will be surprise guest posts from some readers, which I know we’ll all enjoy. And I won’t be far away, and will post some as well.

You can always email me, though I may be unusually slow to answer emails until May 16th. Please forgive me. If your concern is urgent, please mark it as such and I will triage it!

You can email me at

nobugs at

(The yahoo email still works, but the newer, shinier one is better if you remember.)

While Jess is taking care of the blog, S will be in charge over at the forums. There’s a message in the green “stickies” at the top of the forums with all the info on that.

Finally, the site may be down for anywhere from 2 minutes to 30 minutes at 10 pm EST on May 9th (next Weds.) It may be very brief and you may not notice. But if you try to login then and the site won’t load, don’t panic.

I’ll be dropping in before then, so see you soon! Thanks, as always, for helping make Bedbugger what is is.

Hey All-

I’m honored to be helping out. I’d like to invite everyone to feel free to email me at the above address if you happen to see or hear or think of something you’d like to see mentioned in a post on the front page. I’ll try my hardest to keep up with the bedbug news, but I know you guys will catch some things I may miss- and I’m sure you have some great ideas.

Jess, you have been so very greatly missed, I’m so happy you are back.

Everyone, especially our newest colleagues in woe, have you read Jess’s famous, deeply affecting and extraordinarily witty open letter?

If you haven’t, please do yourselves a favor and go right now!

Yes, Jess is secretly potty mouthed. How lucky are we indeed?

I have read that Craigslist post so many times. It never ceases to inspire me (and crack me up).

Something that I never noticed until now is the very end, where Craigslist typically tells you “where” this post is coming from. It’ll say the name of a neighborhood, ie “this is in or around Bucktown.”

On Jess’s post, it says “this is in or around you’re dead.”

She put “you’re dead” as the name of the town!

Heheheheeeee. Stop it, you’re making me blush!

Thanks, Nomo. You’re so sweet. It’s really good to be back.

She put “you’re dead” as the name of the town!

I so want to move there!

Oh, wait… :-/
