Was having a bad day in a bad last week.  That morning, it wasn't until I went to put on clothes that I found I had used toothpaste not deodorant.  I had to have another shower which made my armpits fizz up in blue bubbles.  I think I will go back to toothpaste in a tube from now on.

I'm so sorry, I can't help laughing at the visual. But I'm sorry you were having a bad week.  :-[

The visual is really funny but can I ask, what form was your toothpaste in??  I'm only familiar with tube or powdered form toothpaste, and only familiar with spray, roll-on, or solid deodorants.

And to tell one on myself - I have two contact lens solution bottles.  One is effectively acid and has a bright red DANGER top on it, and the other is plain ol' saline in an all-white bottle.  Grabbing the first bottle to rinse a contact before putting it in my eye was a mistake I hope only happens once.   :'(

I live in a land down-under that is not Australia.  With a small very diverse population we are often used as guinea pigs by multinational companies for consumer items that they think might do well.  So this toothpaste is in a metal container with a sort of spray nozzle on the top.  It only foams up if it hits water. 

Come to think of it I haven't seen any recently in the supermarket so maybe it was not the raging success they had hoped. Or there was an outbreak of blue foaming arm pits through out the country

Sounds like Synsdyne Proenamel toothpaste.

I once brushed my teeth with conditioner (the little tubes that come with hair dye? Yeh... at 530am my brain said "that tube MUST be toothpaste").... bleurgh :(

I did that with the bepanthanen tube last week. Hurk

Bid on a laptop with better specs than the one I have on eBay - won it.  This isn't too bad if I set a low maximum, but if I get caught up in a bidding war......

My bank account looses even if I win.

Although the way Windows 8 computers are taking over the stores - having a spare Windows 7 laptop around isn't the worst thing to spend less than $75 on.  Because I found out that the software to run my embroidery machine is NOT being updated to Windows 8 and VorGuy is not wild about spending $1000 plus on a new embroidery machine - whether it is going to be Windows 8 compatible or not.

I do not call him Scrooge McDuck because nobody goes up against Disney on copyright issues and wins, that I've heard of.  But you get the idea?

Love the guy - just don't love shopping with him - unless I've found a "bargain".

He is happy with my latest bargain - I found him a NEW leather wallet last week - less than $4 USA at the local Goodwill.......usual price would have been at least 5 or 6 times that, if not higher.  And his old one is showing a bit of wear......
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I explain?

Cornbread mix WILL go bad if kept long enough past the expiration date  - just over two years will do it.  You can tell because there will be little odd colors "dots" in it that may or may not move. If you see there dos, you should not taste to see is everything is ok - it's not. You will get sick.

The same with Durkees French fried onions. Rancid oil will taste nasty and you will wnd up at the grocery store 5 minutes before it closes on thanksgiving afternoon while apologizing to your MIL

I just boiled 1 & 1/2 doz. eggs for easter egg coloring.

After they were done boiling, I brought them to the sink, ran cold water on them and gave the pot a couple of flips to toss the eggs so that the shells crack, making them easier to peel. Just like I always do when making deviled eggs.



Oh. Yeah.

I'm making easter eggs.

Not deviled eggs.

You don't peel easter eggs before coloring. Duh.



I guess I'm making deviled eggs after all. :P

Fortunately I had another dozen eggs, but still ::)

Jpcher, I've done that not once, not twice, but just about everytime I've ever made Easter eggs.

For fun deviled eggs, you can go ahead and cut the eggs in half and pop out the yolks.  Rinse any extra yolk off and dye them along with the rest.

You can also leave them cracked and dye them anyway.  It makes a neat spider pattern on the eggs once you do peel them.  While I've made the same mistake dozens of times, I actually do it on purpose on Halloween.  I crack them so there's a good pattern all around, then soak them in red food coloring.  When I make deviled eggs out of them, I decorate them to look like eyeballs, and the red dye takes on a great blood shot eye pattern.

Thank you both, Dazi and mmswm!

Now that you mentioned it, I remember a thread in "entertainment and hospitality" where someone posted easter deviled eggs and they did just what you mentioned, Dazi!

I'll have to do that! ;D


Red food coloring and deviled egg eyes? How cool is that?



What a way to save a disastrous mistake!  ;D

TMI warning!

This was a few years ago, but I always wondered if anyone else has ever done this. I was having a very long day and it was also that time of the month. I went to the bathroom to change my tampon and as I removed it, I felt like something was still there. Apparently, sometime earlier in the day, I had put a new one in without taking the old one out. :o

TMI! TMI!

I can top that one, Faerydust. Not by me, thank goodness, but I had a co-worker about three years ago who was complaining of pain in that area. Finally, she went to the doctor where it was discovered that she had a tampon in she had forgotten about. (That's why she had trouble getting a new one in.) The old one had been there for .... four months!

I nearly fainted out of ickiness when she told me that. How does anyone not know that??? (And please, if you know the answer don't tell me. I had forgotten about this until Faerydust posted her story.)
