Not feeling so good

June 19th, 2012

All night long when I would wake up and absently rub my forehead, I could feel skin peel off. And this morning I have low grade nausea and a low grade headache. I think I have a bit of sunstroke. Been some years since that happened.

Wow, this is pretty gross

Last Christmas in Canada I stubbed my toe something fierce, which resulted in an enormous bruise under the left side of the big toenail on my right foot. Now it looks like half that toenail wants to slough right off. Since only half of it is coming off, I have to wonder whether this will be problematic.

Picture below. I know you want so see it.

Medicated tootsie rolls

August 15th, 2012

This is a Russian tootsie roll supplemented with a massive dose of iron and vitamin C. Very tasty. Kids are given this when they are sick or just for general health purposes. The name of the product means hematogenesis. My colleague Viktoria buys it just because it tastes good.

During the Soviet era the item was so popular that there was often a shortage of it.
