I’m engaging Sloth Mode ‘cos the clear message from my body is “Please rest so I can fight this infection.” Less than 30 hours to departure.

Everyone glared at the tough-looking Islander with the gang tatts, but he was the only one who helped the fragile old bloke off the train.

Catching the 1439 Katoomba to Wentworth Falls, then returning to Bunjaree Cottages to let the antibiotics do their thing.

Oh bother. That actually said “Take immediately before or with first mouthful of food”. The experiment begins…

@WarWraith Yep, the pharmacist warned that most people end up with nausea from this one. Must. Not. Drink. With. The. Russians.

Metronidazole, yes @WarWraith. Plus amoxycillin and potassium clavulanate, for the fact-checkers.

Pharmacist says one antibiotic blocks breakdown of alcohol. If I drink, I’ll have the worst hangover ever and feel truly disgusting.

Obtained: Two serious antibiotics, one serious pain killer, doubled so enough while travelling, stern advice to avoid alcohol for 10 days.

@SabianWilde It’s been a long time since war was seen in the Upper Blue Mountains, I suspect.

Random pharmacy in Katoomba doesn’t bat an eyelid at a mononym, Google.

Searching for drugs.

@PointZeroOne It does say here that the QB-4 repels pigeons. I feel ripped off. arseh.at/ku0 /cc @andrewdotnich

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich So from those instructions, pigeons can sit on the repeller but… true… no pigeons at the end of the platform. Wow.

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

What’s that the pigeons are sitting on? The QB-4 Ultrasonic Bird Repeller. Well that’s money well spent!

“Can”? I mean “cab”. Though the train is a bit like a can. A big electric can. With wheels.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Can to Wentworth Falls; snack; 1200 train to Katoomba; a little reading; 1300 medical centre; remainder TBA.

@bastardsheep I’ll have a squizz at this while I’ve got waiting-time in Katoomba. Thanks for the heads-up.

@neerav Technical types often have an urge to provide technical solutions to what are really human-nature problems. I find it intriguing.

via TweetDeck in reply to neerav

@neerav It was sparked by your suggestion. The idea had been gurgling a while, but you pushed it over the line. It probably shouldve said.

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Can security ever beat PEBKAC?” with @duckblog @ChrisGatford arseh.at/ktx

Mon plan, belated, unordered: Deal with medical stuff; make ready for Malaysia trip; loose-end comms; some writing, possibly.

Booked for 1300 with Dr Nguyen at the Upper Mountains Medical Centre, Katoomba. I become their third customer with a mononym, Google.

@skaye Well, I’m not IN Wentworth Falls. I’m in scrubland some distance from Wentworth Falls.

via TweetDeck in reply to skaye

@skaye Thanks for the suggestion, but I’m in Wentworth Falls. A 120km train journey ain’t going to be time-efficient. :)

@romancingAlix Indeed, no local doctors in Wentworth Falls are even taking on patients. I’ll head to Katoomba Medical Centre shortly.

Monday challenge: Find a doctor with a free appointment. Antibiotics will be needed for this jaw, at the very least.

Oh. Monday. Pain .
