The sky hates me. When i left for work wednesday morning it was drizzling. Right as i got to the bottom of the stairs however it started raining really hard. I was rather confused for a few seconds since i wasn't sure if i hadn't just been wrong about how hard it was raining when i first stepped outside. So i jogged over to the carport since i don't particularly like hard rain, but _right_ as i stepped under the overhang it stopped pouring and went back to drizzling =P

I hate canker sores, but by this point i'm certainly used to them. However _normally_ when i get one it's cause i did something stupid and bit the inside of my lip somehow. However that's not the only way to get them, as indicated by my having gotten a medium large one on the inside of my upper lip, where i'm pretty sure i didn't bite myself and it would in fact be fairly difficult to do so. Normally canker sores mainly hurt when you're eating and such, however this one is "idealy" placed to be more annoying than usual. I can't drink from water bottles very well because the canker sore is right where my lips needs to curve around to form the seal. Furthermore this is the first canker sore i ever remember having that hurts when i _shave._ The pressure of the shaver on my upper lip presses the sore against my teeth =P I should buy some alum or something.

Oragel or other similar stuff works well, but makes anything it touches numb, like your tongue or lips.

I think lye will do the job. =)

Well alum works pretty well too, and is probably a lot easier to purchase and apply :)

I was leaving Target the other day, and it was pouring. So I went back inside to buy an umbrella. But the lines were too long, and I was only buying one thing, so I decided eh, and walked out without buying an umbrella. Only three minutes had passed, but it was no longer raining anymore. Which is great, because I hate umbrellas anyways and now I still don't own one.

Stress can cause canker sores, as does a variety of other things.

I've gotten into heated debates over whether or not canker sores are the same things as herpes. I maintain that it is not.

someone once told me that damn near the whole population carries oral herpes. i wonder if that's true.

Yup! I've read anywhere from 50 to 90 percent. Most people get it as kids.

No, they're not the same as oral herpes--oral herpes sores are generally on your outer lips, and canker sores are generally inside your mouth (there are a number of other differences, but I can't remember all of them right now.) The tendency towards canker sores is genetic, although they do have a viral component (IIRC.) They're aggravated by the sodium lauryl sulfate in most toothpaste.
