6.46am

As mentioned in my vlog yesterday, we are set to wing our way to Japan this Friday. To say that we are looking forward to it is an understatement. 

We are pumped.

This will be my fourth time to Japan but this will be the first time since we left the religion called Jehovah’s Witnesses. So this means that this will be the first time that we can do whatever we want with whoever we want. And boy do we have some cool things planned. From hot spring baths to karaoke to shopping to exploring the famous Piss Alley in search of Suntory whiskey we plan to finally see and feel the real Japan. 

Also mentioned in the vlog was that I am sick: I’ve been crook since last Tuesday and know that I am close to knocking it on the head. I do not want to get on the plane on Friday feeling like this. I’m taking all my medicine like a good boy, and I think I am slowly getting better, but instead of this week being all about anticipation and excitement, all I can think about is GET YO ASS BETTER. 

Fingers crossed, I want to be leaving on a jet plane healthy and ready to have a whole lotta fun. 

8.45am

Okay, so this cold is turning out to be a big pain in the ass. I have finally given in and agreed to go and see a doctor, but of course, now I can’t get an appointment. Our local clinic, our usual stop, is “short on doctors” and “booked out all day” but there was one appointment “at 8.50pm”.

Um, no.

We are now looking further afield, but those places all open at 9.00am. So now I am having a coffee and feeling sorry for myself while waiting for the time to tick by.

9.42am

Remember the other day when I bought some throat lozenges and flu tablets? Well, I got hit good regardless. I don’t know what I have but it started with a sore throat, had me spewing at 1.00am on Thursday, and feeling like my head is going to explode for the last two days. I was feeling better yesterday evening, but had another rough night so have taken today off work too.

I really want to kill this, and kill it quick – we are supposed to be on a plane to Japan in a few days!
