Just to balance things out

When I post Hawaii pictures of next week's trip, you'll likely be able to see what I've been working on this week--namely, the quadruple-headed weather-pattern-altering zit that's currently gestating on my chin.

I can feel it. It's there.

I fully expect the thing to emerge during the airplane ride to Kauai, just in time for pictures. It will likely cause the rain to follow us everywhere we go (sorry Dad!) and the touring helicopter to crash into the Na Pali coastline. Except up until my untimely death, I will be stuffing my face with chocolate-filled malasadas and enjoying the color green and the feeling of warmth on my skin and island breezes through my hair. Totally worth it.

If I stay here I'll just have to take the thing to work with me so that children and the mentally ill can remark on it.

The way to get rid of pimples is to get rid of their heads - all pimples have heads. Get a sewing needle and gently puncture your pimple/gestating pimple monster. Gently apply pressure till a little/medium/large sized nob of puss pops out. It should then heal and NOT return - pimples return cos you haven't removed the head. Apparently when you forcibly pop zits that's when you get scarring and that's why you puncture it with something sharp first.
I had a friend who had seriously bad acne - she babysat for a sister in our ward who was a beauty therapist in exchange for treatment.

Hope this is helpful! :)

If you're trying to make me feel better about you going to Hawaii, it won't work. I'm just sayin'.

I remember a rather rude comment from a movie about knawing something off someone's face? What was that?

Dang Steph, not dramatic about it or something.

Mom-
Uncle Buck: Here's a quarter, now go downtown and hire a rat to gnaw that thing off your face!

Ana, thank you! If I decide to do this it'll have to be when GH isn't around to stop me . . .

Desmama, yeah. That was my best shot!

Stephanie, I'm glad I could brighten your day!

Missy W, you are so right. I'm pretty sure Picasa has come out with a zit-removing feature in the last little while. Love them.

Mom, that is gross. And see coolboy's comment below for the source. Ew.

Giggles, you are my new Greek father! Thank you! :-)

Single mormon chick, tonight I will do exactly as you say.

Of course, another alternative is to use that new fangled AMAZING zit cream which we are expected to believe clears up pre-zits in the course of a tv advert!! (well, ok, a tv advert equivalent of a "day")

Sorry - I don't remember what this miraculous stuff is called but who knows what they've got in there!!

But still, you're going to Hawaii!! I'm so ridiculously jealous of you; I've never been there, but I've heard that Kauai is fantastic.

So totally green-eyed over here.

A home remedy Iv'e used that works is toothpaste. Not getl. Dab a bit on at night before you go to bed and wash off in the morning. Do it for a couple nights and it should be gone.

Karma, baby, karma.

Coolmom--Uncle Buck, and the line was about a mole, "Here's a quarter. Go downtown and buy a rat to gnaw that thing off your face."

I'm jealous about the whole Hawaii thing too, but that seems a bit severe.

Have a great time! If it makes you feel any better, I'm going to Hawaii for the first time in April--2 months after delivering baby. And no, I don't think I'll look anything like those bikini-clad new mom celebrities on the cover of US magazine.

So, I take it your zit caused the tsunami.
