My stuff has arrived. Finally a new set of drums to replace my beaten up RB1 kit.
Pity I actually have work to do today.

Haha my neighbour just dropped off a gift from work (we work for the same place).
It's a weekly tablet organizer
|Nigel's Big Fat Medicial Mis-adventure.
I've just got home from being discharged from the Wellington Hospital A&E.
I did something amazingly dumb tonight.
A little background. since I take 3 different pills before I go to bed, sometime earlier I usually prepare them all and put them in an old pill bottle that I have removed the label from.
When I went to take my meds before bed I grabbed the wrong bottle and took a drink and chugged all the pills. Then thought, that seemed weird. Then I realised what bottle I had just consumed. It was my fresh prescription of Codeine. I had just taken 25 times the prescribed amount (25 x 60mg).
Now I tried to make myself throw up, but was unable, and was shocked at how far back you could get your fingers when you want to 'what was that!'.
Ran to the neighbours door asked if they had anything, they didn't so I called 111 and asked for the ambulance. The ambulance woman was an old friend from Sitel! So I said hello maureen it's nigel, and surprised her quite a bit.
the neighbours came over and watched me while I waited for the ambulance and locked the place up for me when I left.
I started to calm down a bit when it was apparent that the paramedics were in no rush. They asked a bunch of questions, put in a cannula and drove me in to the hospital. When I got there I registered with the duty nurse who said 'looks like you are in for a long night' and sat in the waiting room for about 4 hours. Bored out of my mind. When I did get to see the doctor she asked all the questions again 'ie was it accidental?' drew some blood from the cannula then I sat around in the room for an hour trying not to fall asleep, (this is now 3 am in the morning) then after an hour she said the blood was damaged due to the cannula and she needed to take another sample. so she took one from the other hand. Then an hour and a half later she came back to say everything was all clear so I could go home.
So a shockingly boring anti-climax. I wasn't even numb and my knee was still sore. And while I was drowsy that wasn't surprising since I was getting ready for bed when I started it all. I had been complaining to the doctor previously that the codeine seemed to have no effect on me, I won't be taking it anymore.

|Ray a Day - My Contribution.
Ray a Day
is an ongoing series by Ziztur
where each day she reviews and responds to Question and Answer from Ray Comfort's latest affront to humanity You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can't Make Him Think: Answers to Questions from Angry Skeptics
. Recently she asked for people to do a few guest posts and I offered to do one and that is now up. You can read it here.
Unfortunately my question wasn't quite as funny as some of the others. I do strongly recommend the Ray a Day
series, but if you do decide to have a look through scroll down to the bottom of the page as it lists them newest posts first.
One warning however, if you have a low Stupidity or Fundy tolerance in general, then don't read it.

My sister finished her first Dalek this morning, in time for her to give it to her boyfriend to carry around at a concert they were going to.
The picture is a little dark, but it has the plunger and everything, there are a couple of others in a clearer photo on this page
where the pattern came from.

Today is New Zealands Election Day, we have a different system than the Americans we have MMP (Mixed Member Proportional). So we have 1 vote on the person we want to represent our electorate. And 1 vote for which Party we prefer. And they don't have to be the same. In fact I ended up voting for The National Party Representative for my Electorate, but the Green Party for my Party vote.

|Expelled: No Integrity Allowed
A post since this documentary is due out on DVD.
Over at the Expelled website they are running a poll.
"Do you think Darwin's theories are outdated?"
Now of course the real answer is Yes, they are 150 years old, science has moved on, but remember these are people who use the term 'Darwinism' as a smear towards current scientific theory, so in their terms, the answer should be No.
But here is where it gets good.Go take the poll.
Were your results...
Now refresh the page.
Are your results now
These are the numbers people have been reporting back for days. So basically you can vote anyway you like, they just through them into a black hole and report back one of 2 sets of results. Truly Expelled: No Integrity Allowed.
