Superdrug, Superdrug! how dare you go to a chemist chain store. Find yourself a nice independant chemist shop. There should be one chemist shop open in your area by law. The chemist on duty will be published in the local paper.

What? If you are Saint George (as you have allude to yourself being same - RE: http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=13299.msg162152#msg162152 ) Then why don't you just miraculously heal yourself? You supposedly did it before. No need for a chemist.

Are you confusing St George with Asklepios?

Are you confusing St George with Asklepios?

If you refer to the the legend of St George's life, in whose place you put your own name in the above referenced message, there is a note in the Golden Legends told of of Saint George that reads:

The Poisoned Wine

Then, when Dacian the provost saw that he might not surmount him, he called his enchanter and said to him: I see that these Christian people doubt not our torments.

The enchanter bound himself, upon his head to be smitten off, if he overcame not his crafts. Then he did take strong venom and meddled it with wine, and made invocation of the names of his false gods, and gave it to St. George to drink. St. George took it and made the sign of the cross on it, and anon drank it without grieving him any thing. Then the enchanter made it more stronger than it was tofore of venom, and gave it him to drink, and it grieved him nothing. When the enchanter saw that, he kneeled down at the feet of St. George and prayed him that he would make him Christian. And when Dacian knew that he was become Christian he made to smite off his head."

(from http://www.aug.edu/augusta/iconography/goldenLegend/george.htm)
"The Golden Legend or Lives Of The Saints
Compiled by Jacobus de Voragine, Archbishop of Genoa, 1275
Englished by William Caxton, First Edition 1483
From the Temple Classics Edited by F.S. Ellis
 

Thus, should you be able to do this, Fake Saint George, healing yourself is just a shake of the head to one as great as you.

But since you are asking for a chemist - it is obvious that you are no saint as claimed in the parody of Henry V, referenced above.

Gee, I thought you two were educated. I guess I was wrong.

And it won;t do to claim it was for someone else - St. George supposedly did this as well.

Doctor, giving this quite lowly, immoral creature the benefit of the doubt, I prefer to think she is thinking about George "Dubya" Bush; aren't you, Lady? She has mistaken him for a real Texan.

Look, when I met him he wasn't loaded. I fell in love with him because he has big blue eyes and an air of Hugh Grant. The money came later. I was just telling you how it is. Excuse me for being a true northerner.

You probably need to send me a P.M. on the meaning of these English slang terms. I think from the Urban dictionary definitions that they are even more... ah - "vivid" - terms than I realize.

"Oop narth" is how northerners pronounce "Up north".

Flat caps are caps that are flat.

Whippets are a breed of small greyhound favoured by northerners.

Parkin is... erm... well, it's supposed to be a type of cake... I think.

Doc, yes, I am familiar with the canine - no not in that sense, buddy. But in the urban dictionary whippets also refers to the smooth, hairless area on the inside of the highs. So I was just concerned about ..... well, you know what I mean.

Also 

I won't try to read to much into Middlesex. But when you said, lady, that you would have all of the Corr's, including the bloke - the mind can only wonder about your husband as well.
