#Things falling apart
At Anton's place, Saturday, back from the pub, sat on the throne, discovered a varicose vein
on my left calf.
From NHS Direct:
Varicose veins tend to run in families, and it is probable that there is a genetic tendency to leaky valves. Being overweight increases the risk of varicose veins, as does pregnancy, prolonged standing, and local constriction from tight clothing.
Not pregnant, spend all day sat on my arse, clothing only constricts at the waist. Must be time to lose some weight again.
Look on the bright side. There are worse places to discover varicose veins. Especially whilst on the toilet. [added 14th Apr 2003]

Planetcutie is right. A few years back a specialist calmly told me that I had a varicose vein in my left nut. Something about a design fault from when we went to walking upright from running around on all fours. [added 28th Apr 2003]
