Day 2 and Cheating

It's really easy to make it to "Day 2" of no profanity. Just get sick and not work.

The night before last, elves snuck into my mouth and took sand paper to my uvula. Not the back of my throat (which feels fine), but that dangly bit back there. Swallowing is painful and I can't recall ever having a sore throat quite this bad. Apparently this is going around, but that's not much consolation. Even with the anesthetic cough drops and the Tylenol with codeine, I still have that lethargy that comes with fighting an infection.

What's even worse is my realization that I seem to be getting sick far more often here in London than I have anywhere else. Of course, I've not actually tracked this so I can't prove it, but I really do feel like my body is saying nasty things about this part of the world.

Maybe it's just different strains of the cold virus that your body isn't used to fighting off? That's my theory, anyway. The worst cold I ever had was one I caught while in Germany.
My throat was a little scratchy when I went to bed last night and now you've made me paranoid that I'm about to come down with something. Anyway, I hope you feel better soon.
London is pretty fucked, disease-wise. It has a very large population, crammed into a fairly small area, that is then even further crammed whenever big chunks of said population get on the tube (probably at least a couple of times a day each, on average). It has plenty of pollution, thanks to lots of slow-moving traffic. Plus its denizens stay up too late and party too hard, knackering their immune systems.

These are all the reasons why I love to visit London once a month, but have no interest in living there...
how have you defined what is profanity and what is not?
does 'damn' count ?
how about 'gadzooks' ? or is simple blasphemy not considered profane in the curtisphere.
