Prescriptions and More Travel Prep

I met with the travel doctor yesterday. He was a nice man who told me about all of the diseases I could acquire while on my Australian adventure, then he prescribed me a bunch of stuff I can't pronounce. I felt like it was halloween. I just went up to the doctor's office, knocked on the door, said "Sick or Treat!" and was handed a bunch of prescriptions. No complaints there.

After having discussed avoiding: mosquitos, parasites, stray animals, sushi, and salads (yes, I was told by the doctor NOT to eat a salad. Finally I have an excuse), I was escorted into some kind of random testing room. There, I met a friendly nurse with cold hands. She jabbed me with Hepatitis A in one arm, then Typhoid in the other.

Last week I got my Tetanus shot renewed and in about a week, I'm going to have to get my flu shot. By the time I get to Australia I am going to be so drugged up on American pharmaceuticals that I doubt I'll remember my trip at all. I suppose that's why I'm bringing a camera.

Other than my travel preparations... There's not a whole lot going on.

I bought some clothes on Sunday, which brings me to my next question: Do you think if you try on pants and then fart in them, you should buy them? That's just one to ponder.

I went to see "The Other Guys" last night with some friends from church. I thought it was average. Not bad, but not great. However, there are some sincerely funny parts.

Well, I'm going to post some videos that I've been enjoying lately.

This is a video that really shows my excitement for the southern hemisphere AND Flight of the Conchords

The video below is my current theme song. Yes, it is Hanson... and yes, I would like to go to their concert August 24th. listen to the song below and you'll see why.

Peace and Love! Have a wonderful day!
