    Now my daughter and I have lice, thanks to infested friends at school. I am a walking mini zoo. Add fleas and I could charge admission. Please tell me life will change.Thanks.

    sympathies!!!!
    and i probably shouldn't be lmaoing, but i kinda am, NOT because i don't sympathize, i TOTALLY do -but because i too have an Animal Planet TV show happening in my apartment so trust me, i am laughing *with* you not at you. first, i got bedbugs courtesy of BRAND NEW sofa. then found ridiculous number of carpet beetle eggs. now (due to bedbugs, i assume) got giant bad a**centipedes IN MY BED (well ok, that only happened once -when i was awake -but once is MORE than enough!).

    your life will change. mine too. our lives WILL get better. they HAVE to. right?
    remember living in a blissfully bug-ignorant world? yup, me too. sure, i was annoyed at the random quickly glimpsed centipede or fruit fly -but i had art on the walls, threw dinner parties, slept in on sundays and lounged around in a bathrobe and read the paper. had clothes in a dresser instead of ziploc baggies. didn't have to go through full decontamination procedures everytime i wanted to set foot outside my apartment to go to work or see friends. our lives will get back to normal, sometime. and then think how much more we'll appreciate it.

    in the meantime, really really REALLY sorry about the lice. they're easier to get rid of then bedbugs though. thats something, anyway. hey, i'm having a glass of wine. new nightly habit since the bugs (required for relaxation, but only one per night). join me?

    For your lice issue, you may want to check out the Robicomb - it electrocutes the little suckers as you comb through the (DRY) hair.

    I have seen it at work, and it (almost) made me wish I had a reason to use it. Well, maybe not even almost. But I did purchase one for a rainy...um, make that a "lousy"...day...

    Sorry to hear about this.

    Here in NYC they have professional nit pickers...

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Hey, at least there are no bird mites living in your nose. Apparently that's possible.
