Lists of 2012 - #4

Listography 2012 - #4 - Least Favourite Smells

1.  Pickled herring

2.  Vomit

3.  Diesel fuel or gasoline

4.  Sour milk

5.  Cigarette smoke

6.  Bad breath

7.  Decomposing mice (don't ask how I know this!)

8.  Stinky tofu (it's available from street vendors on every corner in Taiwan - we'd cross the street to get away from it!)

9.  Dead fish along the lake shore

10.  Burning garbage

11.  Durian fruit, also found in Asia

12.  Outhouse on a hot day


  1. Too funny. I have both those Asian smells on my list. I remember them well. I didn't realize you don't like even the smell of herring, but I can guess why you don't.

  2. oh my ... they almost make me gag just reading them! :)

  3. i agree with lindsay, some of them made me almost gag reading them. what a weird list i picked, hey? i was wondering why on earth i put it on there when i was typing mine up this week.

    i think it's so neat that you and mel both included 2 smells from your travels in asia.
