Name that bug

Please help me identify this bug: black, 1 cm long, head maybe 2 mm wide tapering down to a very thin tail, antenna-less, no visible legs (appears to slither), moves quickly (and therefore tough to kill), found almost exclusively in the bathroom.

It is the bug described in these threads
. But none of the suggested answers are correct.
I am in Toronto and have seen this bug during all four seasons, but more frequently in the winter. I only see them at night. They seem to prefer the darkness. I usually see only one at a time, two max. They mostly move in semi-circles or S-shapes. They prefer tile to carpet. They've never strayed more than 5 feet from the bathroom.
If someone identifies them, I would also appreciate advice on how to get rid of them. Thanks!
