I was having lunch at a mid-range restaurant over the weekend when the woman in the next booth decided to suction out her infant's nostrils using one of those squeeze-bulb things. I swear, the sluuuurp noise nearly completely put me off my food. Yuck.

I would have noxious gas when I had my period, thankfully menopause seems to have fixed that, however, garlic, and most dark green vegies will set off  the gas attacks.

DF was sitting in the bathroom one day, and one of the cats came, went into the litter box, came out, and glared at him, then left the bathroom.

I'm having the opposite... :-[  It may be related to when my period should have been, but because it's been so long, I don't know.  Thankfully, I'm fine with the garlic/veggies, but when I've had eggs, you'd think the Devil had been in the loo! >:D

I have an ex who could clear a room.  "Fine" (using the word in its loosest sense) when he worked in an open-plan office, but there was no avoiding the attribution of guilt when he was moved to his own office.  Apparently, he could see co-workers recoil when they opened his door.  I had every sympathy for them; I lived with that stink. ;)

Now see, for me, it's broccoli that causes the flatulence from the seventh level. ;D Raw broccoli only. Also gives me wicked heartburn. Cooked doesn't do that, cauliflower doesn't do that. Shame really - I do very much enjoy raw broccoli...

But while I think of it, I don't seem to have any, ahem, stinky issue with asparagus. Which is good, because I adore asparagus. ;D

This could also fall under the stupid questions thread, but as it's a bit gross I'm putting it here...

Lately I've begun getting these odd...things in my pores. On the surface they look like blackheads that just haven't had a chance to get all grimy yet, but I can't squeeze them out - I have to go in with something pointy (I have a double-ended blackhead extractor with interchangeable pointy ends) and scoop them out from underneath, and when they come out they're quite hard, whitish and resemble nothing so much as tiny rocks. They also have a bit of an unpleasant smell to them and leave my pores quite stretched out once I've got them out. What exactly are they?

They sound like milia. I get them on my forehead and eyelids occasionally. It's usually from keratin buildup. People with autoimmune disorders are prone to get them, though anybody can. They are most common in newborns.

Yep, that looks about like what I've got. Thanks Dazi, I suspected it was something simple like that but I didn't know where to start looking. :) I'll have to make sure to clean my nose a little better I think - it's been getting rather flaky!

You're quite welcome! They aren't so bad when you get a few here and there on your face. However, they are NOT pleasant at all if you get them on *other* body areas.

Having had things that are easily squeezable on other body areas, I cringe at the thought. ;D

Oh ugh! That's the worst, especially when you're not so very mobile. Glad you are through the surgery, though!

Yes, my deepest sympathies about the side effects of the painkillers. Hope you have a speedy recovery. :)

I did a lap of the ward on a wheelie walker just now! ;D Also managed a shower this morning, got a picture of my leg all covered in pink stain before I washed half of it off.
