^^ Always keep a bottle of nail polish remover on hand, even if you don't paint your nails. It's a great solvent for super glue, especially when you get the glue on your fingers.

Yes, I know from personal experience.

Super glue is temporary.  It lets go in about a year.  I learned this the hard way when I used it to repair a decorative mug.  So if it gets on the counter or the floor just leave i there.  In about a year it will peel off like the wrapper on a new CD.

I ate two Fiber One Bars yesterday, and two the day before that.

Yeah...don't do that.  Trust me.  :-[

Don't try to eat cereal with milk while sitting on the couch surfing the internet.  This is especially important if you have kids and dogs. The resulting mess includes at least three loads of laundry and the couch cushions sitting out in the sun to dry.

Similarly to not eating fiber bars - do not buy the added fiber apricot preserves just because that's the only brand the store has that has an apricot flavor.  Furthermore, don't eat multiple servings of jellied toast with those preserves.  Last but not least, don't have anything else at all planned for a day where you do both of the above.

In a not unrelated vein, don't eat an entire bag of sugar free marshmallows in one sitting...and certainly don't compound this by then eating sugar free hard candy.

At least I didn't have to share a bathroom.

Eat sugar free candy in very minute amounts per day. I'd rather have a tiny piece of the real thing, since I know how I react to those.

If you are as insane about fresh blueberries and/or cherries as I am the same warning applies.

Likewise, dried apricots should be eaten sparingly.

To get us away from the track that probably belongs in the gross out thread...
Don't wear your new calf-high rain boots with ankle socks.  They are meant to be worn with something between your skin and the plastic at all times.

My boots are the only reason I have knee high socks.

In my case it was no sugar added ice-cream.  Now usually sugar alcohols don't give me to much trouble,  but they did when I also ate an apple within a few hour time period. The combo was more than my bowels could handle.

The only plus side was I lost 3 lbs in one bathroom visit.  :P

My other one is watermelon... My Dh always refers to it as "nature's tastiest laxative".

Today I am sporting a lovely fresh scald on my left wrist.

I was making a pot of plunger coffee for a tradesman.  The plunger resisted, I forced the issue.  The coffee sprayed out like a black, grainy fountain, all over my left wrist and the kitchen behind it. 

Several hours later, after cleaning up the kitchen and cleaning the coffee pot to as-new, the burn was still smarting.  Today, 24 hours later, it only hurts when hot water runs over it - showering was not fun.

I also learned that hot water, a small amount of dishwasher powder and a little bit of a soak removes all sorts of coffee build-up from plunger parts.

Out on the patio we'd sit,
And the humidity we'd breathe,
We'd watch the lightning crack over canefields

This is getting gross.

OK. Some people react badly to artificial sweeteners and fruit. Thanks for the information, sincerely.

Could we please, oh please, move on?


I've been baking since I was 10 years old. So why do I so rarely remember to stand aside when I open the oven door? Sometimes I am surprised my glasses haven't melted from the flash of heat.   :(
