melon / deodorant

1. I cut a honeydew melon, scooped out the seeds, and tried a wedge. Not ripe enough. :(

Is there any way to get it to ripen the rest of the way?


2. I generally buy unscented deodorant because, hey, the point is to NOT have an underarm odor, rather than just add a different aroma. But it is harder and harder to find unscented versions, and I suddenly realized that I've never actually noticed the scent of anyone else's deodorant.

Do you tend to notice what scent deodorant other people are wearing? Do you care? (I'm talking just being in the same room with them, not launching your nose into their armpit to check it out.)

Compulsive

I recently developed a compulsion that I'm not sure how to control because it gets really bad if I don't do it.

It's lip balm.

How does one quit lip balm addiction? Anyone else ever go through this? How long does the horrible dry phase last? I'm going on day 2 and I've already split my lip to the point of it bleeding, but I'm resisting putting on more lip balm knowing that's where the problem is coming from.

EDIT: I mean, how does one quit lip balm addiction in the most soothing way possible? I realize cold-turkey is the way to do it, and I know about drinking loads of water, but I'm curious if there is anything else I can do to make this go as easily and painlessly as possible.

So in about a month and a half, I will need a new roommate. I currently am doing roomiematch.com and Craigslist, though I feel like I should be doing something else as well. (Especially given that no one on Craigslist can read the start date that is written on there twice...)

How long did it take you to find a roommate a new roommate? Did you go with the first person who offered or did you wait for someone you felt most comfortable with?
