I'm going to have to start disliking Star Trek. Its one thing to be short sighted and asthmatic but quite another to be short sighted, asthmatic AND a star trek fan, it just takes me into new realms of geeky losertude. This would be the roundabout way of saying that the Doc says I definitely have asthma. I have two inhalers - one for mornings and one for during the day and it *could* go away eventually but I'd have to help it along with more regular trips to the gym and quitting smoking.
Its getting so as a fella can't have ANY vices.

Hell no, they're not arranged by size and colour.

On the other hand, you provably have a girlfriend.

Why has LJ suddenly gone all "kick-everyone-out"-ish?

Some of us just have that particular rod to bear.

I used to relive this event pretty much every week, I'd walk into the pub and say hi to someone I'd met a dozen times before and they'd be like "...er......hi there......erm......what's your name again?"

So eventually I just started saying, "hey, just call me Specky".

Next thing I'd walk into the pub and everyone in the place, including people I'd never met in my life would come up and be going "Hey Specky, how's it going?". Problem solved.

Then you'd get talking to someone and they'd say "Hey Specky, I bet you work "in computers" don't you?". Sigh....so then I'd have to decide whether to reinforce the stereotype or just lie.

Then I got asthma.....


wheeze....I mean sigh.....

Thankfully my asthma went away, completely, utterly, absolutely and in its entirety! Alas, Specky I remain.

Can you recite pi to 20 places? If not, you're probably ok :-) (Nerd)

Nah.. only two places. Four if you count the three and the decimal point.

So quit smoking. But in its stead can I recommend some good ole fashioned sex, drugs & rock n roll?
(Being virtuous is overrated anyway!)

Old fashioned sex??? Don't fancy that much.
