i guess nothing should surprise me since when i lived in nz, i was amazed to discover neosporin wasn't sold there (it's an antibacterial ointment or cream, depending on your preference). i don't take antibiotics for everything and don't put neosporin on every cut, but around this time last year i fell and got a huge scrape on my knee. i was about to go camping and we'd already left our apartment so i couldn't really clean up properly, but luckily my bf always keeps a first aid kit in his car, so i could bandage it and put some neosporin on it. i still have a huge scar, just from tripping on some uneven pavement. ugh.

That's roughly analogous to how it works in Australia. The Scandinavian countries simply don't have it. At all. Fucking hell.

I just have a return visit to Denmark left, and I understand they're just like Norway and Sweden. Ugh. I do, at least, have a good stock of paracetamol to get me back to Australia, but my pseudoephedrine stocks won't last. I have some nasal spray I may have to resort to using, and some antihistamines. At this point my only concern is that I don't cough/have too bad a runny rose to get through some gigs I'm going to over the next three nights. And then get home. How the hell am I meant to sleep on the plane? I'll snore to high heaven. I can't abide that sort of embarrassment.

Well I recovered enough to have a nice, leisurely, and restful flight home. I can't believe how empty my flights were. Economy class suddenly felt more luxurious.

I haven't refined it fully, but

I can see those Trump Towers/I know about those golden showers/All you can see is a Russian whore/As Putin looks in the door/Man peels off those dollar bills etc etc

LALALALALALAA AMERICA I WANT TO LIVE IN AMERICA

I am struggling on extending it properly but it's way more solid than I expected. I'm a hopeless writer.

All I came up with a few weeks ago was "this man comes up to me, his face ORANGE like a....", and then I couldn't think of how to go further with it.

You need to send it to Bono.

I think I'm already testing my bandmates' patience with my proposal to cover Exit/Bullet. And with my general inability to articulate coherently how the songs I've written are meant to go.
