thrush, and not the small bird variety

I have thrush in my throat. Blehhh!

The really sad thing is, it's my own fault. I deliberately didn't clean my teeth or gargle after I took my new steroid inhaler last night - to see whether it would give me a bad throat. So it was a science experiment. And the answer is - I need to clean my teeth, or I'll regret it. Huh.

For those who were following the discussion, it is Flixovent. Same drug as Flixonase only as an asthma drug instead of a nose spray. So far (touch wood) it is being wonderful at controlling my asthma and not giving me horrible side effects (apart from the throat, which is just par for the course really). I took it yesterday morning and then had to run down the stairs to answer the phone, and I didn't even notice - which is what's supposed to happen, you're not supposed to take a preventer inhaler and then be unable to breathe properly for half an hour.

Random linkage

Two wildly differing sites about religion and science: Evolution disclaimer stickers (from kightp and epi_lj) and The Geek Guide to Kosher Machines (from er... a link in mactavish's lj, I think).

New Japanese fashion: skirts that are not transparent but look like they are?! Not worksafe, depending on your work. Not convinced that some of the skirts aren't transparent, especially the orange one - the girl's legs line up perfectly with the legs supposedly "painted" on the skirt.

Finally, adjectivemarcus's reply to the soft fluffy memes: 1. Leave me a comment, 2. I'll reply insulting you, 3. Repost this in your journal and we'll ignore it. Very funny. I wouldn't be very good at this, though. (After encountering The Most Obnoxious Drunk People EVAR!! on Friday night, I decided to give up swearing except in interesting and creative ways, but I couldn't think of any interesting ways. Yes, I know there are books & websites dedicated to Shakespearian, Latin, etc. insults. This doesn't help me remember them in a time of stress.)
