I saw this meme on userinfoannathepiper's journal

"Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them here, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much."

and I was much intrigued. I started going through my 90-odd interests and I began to realize "hey, this one is the same as the one above it" and "hey, this one is boring as hell."

So I began to cull my interests.

I have cut down to 84 interests. These are a much better indication of who I am and what I am into, but every 10th one is boring as all shit. I'd rather write about the experience of watching a stage dry so I'll tell you what -

if one of my interests intrigues you, ask me and I will write about that.

OSF Semmies - when I was seventeen I took part in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Summer Seminar for High School Juniors. We refered to ourselves as "semmies" for those glorious weeks. One of the hopes I had starting with livejournal was that I would cross paths with some of the 1987 semmies again.

Samter's Triad is the clinical name for what the hell is wrong with me. It's asthma, nasal polyps and an aspirin allergy. One of the reasons I could never get my asthma under control was because it was not "just" allergy or exercise triggered. There are a lot of foods which are just similar enough to aspirin to trigger a reaction (asthma, red face etc.) and it wasn't until I started minding my diet and limiting those foods that I started getting better.

The OSF Semmies sounds like that would have been a lot of fun.
Well THAT does NOT sound like fun. I am glad that you are able to find out what the problem was and are getting better though.
