10 Days 'til Home

This post comes on the morning after the day I got bitten by some kind of spider. My ankle is swollen and painful as all hell but there's no point trying to make an appointment to see a doctor; there's NO chance I'd get in before next week. Did get some medicine from the pharmacy... and had to pay out of pocket, of course.

So, without further ado:

What I'll miss about London: Their lovely currency. Makes more sense than American coins, I think. 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, 1 pound and 2 pound coins make everything eeeasy. Oh, and no added tax at the register - it's already factored in so you're not paying $2.67; it's £2.60.

What I'm looking forward to in America: Being able to see the doctor on short notice and health insurance coverage.


  1. Interesting addition of the "check this box" majig. I hope you don't have to get your leg amputated once you get Stateside... That'd suck. Even Walgreen's couldn't save you now, either one. <3 m8
