December 2008

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Ho Ho Ho...


There is lots of snow on Powder Mountain. 5 feet of snow over the Christmas week - now that's a real stocking filler...

We're getting stuck.

View The planned itinerary, correct as of December 2008 on pendleton's travel map.

Hep A booster, Hep B (3 jabs over at least a month but probably should take longer and means we may need a booster in Oz), and Rabies (woof! 3 more jabs). And the latter is really expensive!

Ouch, and ouch again.

Angi is attempting to conquer her morbid fear of needles by dosing herself with codeine and liberally applying lidocaine topically over the presumed puncture site.

Lidocaine is typically used by nursing mothers with sore nipples, so it's clearly not strong enough to knock out a baby and so unlikely to work on Angi. It is especially rubbish when the nurse doesn't bother to inject inside of the lidocained-up area.

Jon is acting the hero and not making a fuss about the jabs.

We'll see who's the toughest if we end up getting Delhi Belly...
