Call me Rodney

It's bad enough that I have too much in common with Rodney McKay already (being socially maladroit, nervous, not going to see 'Alien' till much later than everyone else because I knew it would terrify me--and I was right, having childhood nightmares still) but the list is getting too long. In the latest episode ('Missing'), Dr Keller and Teyla have this non-spoilery conversation:

KELLER: Ibuprofen. Helps with the pain and swelling.
TEYLA: Yes. Doctor McKay uses them frequently, along with antihistamines, antacids, motion sickness pills ...
KELLER: You forgot the prescription I just wrote him for restless leg syndrome.
Aaaaugh! Apart from the citrus allergy (I love lemons) that is just too close to home. I also bet mosquitoes home in on Rodney as soon as he puts his nose through the stargate; I have to slather repellent all over myself before I venture out in the late afternoon or evening--and then thy bite my ears or little fingers.

And there's something you can take for restless leg syndrome? Lead me to it!

Damn. I may have to make a Rodney icon. :-P
