The Pink Bin

pinkbin.jpg

I don’t think my new neighbors is aware that this is a feminine
hygiene product disposal bin. Two new people moved in this semester,
one of my previous neighbors has graduated while the other moved to
Oakleigh in protest of the recent raise of the halls rent. The Pink
Healthcare Services bin has never doubled as a rubbish bin last
semester or the previous one, so I think either one or perhaps both of
my new neighbors is making the poor bin do double duty.

As you can see from the photo, it has been stuffed with
miscellaneous things like toilet paper wrappers, toilet papers, an ice
cream wrapper (?) and a plastic soap dish (!). The auto closing
mechanism of the bin has thus been blocked by the debris, and so it has
remained for several days. The cleaners should put up a sign clearly
labeling the original purpose of the bin to prevent such occurrences in
the future. Heh. :)

Edit: My apologies about all the disclaimers floating about.
I’m feeling a bit paranoid about getting raided, seeing as to how my
address is visible to anyone who does a whois query. Not that I have
anything to hide of course, nor am I in possession of any illegal
substances. Just felt like putting up the disclaimers.

Baking soda potentiates amphetamines!!! =D

I’ve dumped a total of 45 x 5 mg dexamphetamine tablets over the
course of the night. I mean, fucking hell! That justifies a bit of
profanity…45 tablets is nearly half of my script! Gone, either digested
or absorbed through my sinuses. That’s unacceptable! 225 mgs over a 10
hour period…half of my script consumed in a night. :( Jesus wept.
Forgive the blasphemy (on the day of the Lord somemore) but I’m not due
to refill my script until 23 more days and half of it is already gone!
I did feel a very good rush during my initial dose of 80 mgs orally and
20 mg insufflated, but after that it was just maintenance doses to keep
me awake. I’m planning to stay up until late tonight.

I would weep for the amount of dexamphetamine that was wasted, but
there’s no use crying over spilt milk (or consumed dexies for that
matter). It’s just an issue of tolerance and that’s unavoidable, but I
was wondering if there’s any way to maximize the efficiency of the
dexamphetamine tablets. I still need more to be able to stay up until
late tonight. I did a bit of research for amphetamine potentiators
(things that causes a synergetic effect and makes the drug stronger or
last longer), but didn’t find anything noteworthy until I chanced upon
this tidbit of information on [rxlist.com]:

Alkalinizing Agents

Gastrointestinal alkalinizing agents (sodium bicarbonate, etc.)
increase absorption of amphetamines. Urinary alkalinizing agents
(acetazolamide, some thiazides) increase the concentration of the
non-ionized species of the amphetamine molecule, thereby decreasing
urinary excretion. Both groups by agents increase blood levels and
therefore potentiate the action of amphetamines.

Increase absorption of amphetamines! Potentiate the action of
amphetamines! Those are magic words…music to my ears! =D Praise the
Lord! Sodium bicarbonate…that’s baking powder! I did some more reading
and found out that taking dexamphetamine an hour or so after
alkalinizing your GI tract will increase the effects. Why wasn’t I
aware of this earlier?!?! Curse you (I mean me), for not doing your
research.

Today is a Sunday and I couldn’t be bothered going far to buy some
baking soda so I went to the local café instead. This was how the
conversation went:

Me: Hello, this is going to sound like a strange request, but can I buy some baking powder off you? I have really bad gastric…
Girl at the counter: Baking powder? Okay, let me get some.
(takes a plastic cup and goes into a kitchen)
1 minute later…
(the cook comes out holding the cup with the girl at the counter)
Cook: Hello, are you the one with the stomach problem?
Me: Yeah, I need some baking powder for my gastric. Can I buy some off you?
Cook: I can give you some, but it’s not going to help your stomach.
Me: It has always worked before, it neutralizes the acids in my stomach.
Cook: Okay, give me a second
(goes back into the kitchen)
30 seconds later…
Cook: Here you go. No charge.
(hands me the cup full of baking powder)
Me: No, let me pay you for it.
Cook: Don’t worry about it, I’ll give it to you.
Me: Okay, thanks!

dexpear.jpg

I felt bad about getting the baking soda for free, so I bought a
pear (which I read was also an alkaline food) for 70 cents. Yes, I’ve
done a lot of reading and contrary to popular belief, fruits are
alkaline while milk is acidic! Apparently, there’s a difference between
the chemical properties (we all learnt in chemistry that fruits are
acidic using the PH testing strips) while nutrition wise, it’s
alkaline! Milk, which one would assume is an alkaline is in fact acidic
in nutrition (after your body processes it). Well, you learn something
new everyday.

My stomach has been very acidic the whole night, I could feel it and
I was about to puke my stomach acids out, so I wasn’t really being
untruthful about my gastric. No wonder the pills didn’t work so well.
Here’s another related tidbit from the wonderful rxlist.com entry on
dextroamphetamine:

Acidifying Agents

Gastrointestinal acidifying agents (guanethidine, reserpine,
glutamic acid HCl, ascorbic acid, fruit juices, etc.) lower absorption
of amphetamines, Urinary acidifying agents (ammonium chloride, sodium
acid phosphate, etc.) increase the concentration of the ionized species
of the amphetamine molecule, thereby increasing urinary excretion. Both
groups of agents lower blood levels and efficacy of amphetamines.

No wonder! I wasn’t getting the full potential of the precious
little pills due to my acidic stomach. Lower absorption of
amphetamines! Lower blood levels and efficacy of amphetamines! Heresy!
Such dirty, disgusting, filthy, revolting, repulsive, sickening,
horribly blasphemous words! Get thee behind me Satan! No acidic foods
for me today! *makes a sign to ward off evil*

Anyway, the cook gave me a lot of baking soda even though I only
asked for two teaspoons. I dissolved 4 heaped teaspoons of baking soda
(or sodium bicarbonate if you want to be technical about it) into a mug
of water and drank it. 1 hour later, I dropped 6 pills and by God, I
was peaking again! That was 30 minutes ago, and I’m still feeling great
now! It wasn’t as good as the first dose, naturally, but I did feel
rushes this time. I don’t know how much is placebo and how much is
actual pharmacology but if rxlist.com says it’s true, that’s good
enough for me. :)

Just passing the information on…amphetamines can not only be potentiated, but the effects prolonged
by a simple kitchen item! Good old baking soda! Amazing…you really do
learn something new everyday. How I wish I knew about this sooner. I’m
going to change the PH levels of my GI tract to lean towards the
alkaline side every time I take dexamphetamines! More value, more
effects, more more more! I love you rxlist.com! Praise the Lord!
Hallelujah! He works in mysterious ways indeed! :)

THE KOLLECTIVE

Disclaimer: This post is not intended to be taken seriously.
It’s a brainstorming session about fictitious events which is meant for
a manga (graphic novel) plot. It’s not to be interpreted as an
intension to commit any illegal activity.

Edit: The Manga’s first draft is here [sixthseal.com]!

Daylight saving time is ending!

Woo hoo, we gain an hour today, fellow Victorians! :) Set your clocks back to 2 am at 3 am.

More about the THE KOLLECTIVE: Me and my bunch of friends used to
kid around like this, bouncing ideas off each other about what company
we’ll start and who’ll be in it. :) I suddenly felt like doing that
again after reading the “starting up Burger King” comments (link
below). Thus, I posted this:

Link of the Day: Do you want to rule the world with an iron fist? JOIN US AND TAKE OVER THE WORLD! We need YOU! [sixthseal.com]

on the previous post. :)

kolltive.jpg

I did a bit of Photoshop work during a break while working on my
assignment. I am aware of the distinct lack of designing skills on my
part. =D This is our logo. Yes, that’s my eye and I apologize about the
slightly bloodshot condition and the unsightly details. ;) I used macro
mode to take a photo of my right eye and I surprised myself with the
clarity and sharpness of the detail. The pupils were even reflecting
the digicam and monitor! I was inspired to do it by fuzzy’s [absolutely-fuzzy.com] logo creations for her design project. :)

Anyway, the eye idea is from the Illuminati “all seeing eye” on top
of a pyramid design. It strikes fear into the hearts of our adversaries
and sends a general message out that WE ARE WATCHING YOU! The red
colors of THE KOLLECTIVE font symbolizes bravery, if I remember my
“color symbols of the Malaysian flag” lessons in high school right. The
bold uppercase font is meant to convey strength and send a “resistance
is futile” message. The “Leading the wild into the ways of the man…” is
a pet axiom of mine paraphrased from the bible. The phrase is meant to
convey our resolution in taking over the world.

THE KOLLECTIVE: It’s going to be a large company with lots of
divisions specializing in different things. That’s our official front,
anyway. The main income will be acquired by drug manufacture,
distribution and retailing. The company will not be involved in the sex
industry even though it’s lucrative because I think that it’s seedy and
dirty. Unlike many others, personally I think recreational drug use is
much more acceptable that being involved in the sex industry. Firearms
dealing could be in our future expansion plans though. There is no
leader in our organization, decisions are made by majority voting. Our
goal is to aggressively take over companies one by one either through
buying them out with our war chest or using strong arm tactics. Our
final aim is to take over the world and rule the world with our
collective iron fists! *loud, prolonged and slightly insane evil
laughter*

Why the emphasis on drugs? Drugs = quick and fast cash flow. ;)

Huai Bin aka killuminati

Official job description: Computer science consultant
Off the record: Synthesis of recreational compounds to finance
our operation. First, simple pseudoephedrine -> methamphetamine and
as expertise grows, safrole -> mdma. we’ll pool our money to rent a
small warehouse in a remote area of Sibu, buy a pill press,
get the precursor chems and make pills with ‘K’ (for ‘K’ollective, you
can’t fit “THE KOLLECTIVE” on a pill!) imprinted with the “all seeing
eye” design on them. good, quality pills and we’ll undercut the
competition by selling them slightly above cost! Not only that, I’ll
also synthesize exotic chemicals from PiHKAL and TiHKAL by the much
respected Dr. Alexander Shulgin
[cognitiveliberty.org] and press them into pills which are labeled
properly, including dosage guides. I’ll tap the niche market yet!

Frank aka frank_omatic

Official job description: Legal representative
Off the record: Sue everyone to supplement our income. get us
out of trouble should our lab be discovered. europe representative to
distribute our pills. we’ll make huge ass pills with 200 mg of mdma and
push the amsterdam competition out of business! From the previous
comments (his words): As for all our money, i will put them in it some
off shore bank in South America. Don’t worry i will take care of the
legal document. We will open a investment company and a charity
organisation to “wash” our black money.

Daniel aka DieHardX

Official job description: Architecture consultant
Off the record: Sabotage other company’s architecture, make
buildings fall down and all that. singapore representative to
distribute our pills. pills will be smuggled in as ‘architecture
components’. use your philosophy ideas to think about unorthodox ways
to increase our grip on the world!

Adrian aka IQ0

Official job description: Chemical Engineer
Off the record: Applying his engineering background to make pill
presses and other machinery required for making drugs. His reverse
osmosis knowledge would be useful to produce clean pyrogen (sp?) free
water for our drug manufacturing.

Christopher aka Ah Siang

Official job description: Human Resource Director
Off the record: He’ll be in charge of recruiting people for our
strong arm division. The strong arm division is not part of THE
KOLLECTIVE and has no voting rights. Recruitment can be from militias,
soldiers of fortunes, gangsters, ah bengs, it doesn’t matter. We pay
them well and we overwhelm by numbers. Our army would be equipped with
.45 millimeter side arms for normal enforcement, confrontation,
harassment and intimidation campaigns. We’ll also have to buy AK47s
from a corrupt country who’s willing to sell automatic weapons for cash
in the near future. That would be necessary for gang warfare with
established cartels when we graduate into the big leagues. Our
organization’s resignation policy for our strong arm division is very
simple and promotes loyalty. Feel free to leave anytime. However, if
any disclosure of the organization’s activities is made, we’ll give you
a very nice “severance package”, which will ah…”set you up for life”,
so to speak. ;)

Wen Jia aka teddybwear

Official job description: Horticulturist
Off the record: She has offered to cultivate our cannabis,
opium, coca and all other plants with recreational potential. That’s
good, coz shifting this responsibility to her gives my mom the ability
to concentrate on our underground pipe distribution network! Heh. :)
She’s particularly interested in cultivating new strains of cannabis,
which is good. We’ll corner the cannabis market yet, with the help of
teddybwear, we’ll create a new ultra high THC content strain for the
connoisseur market. She’ll also be cultivating normal indica and sativa
strains to sell to the commercial market. Our product will be cured
properly, no shortcuts guaranteed! Our organization is committed to
ensuring that the cannabis is dry before weighting it for sale too.
Unlike our competitors, you’re guaranteed to get your money’s worth for
the weight! We’re not going to spray the cannabis with water to
artificially increase the weight or anything like that. And that’s THE
KOLLECTIVE guarantee! :)

Other people I’ll like in THE KOLLECTIVE:

My dad aka Khemistry

Official job description: Administration
Off the record: Graduated with first class honors in chemistry. Arm him with Rhodium
[rhodium.ws] and the equipment and the precursor chemicals and we’ll
make a good father and son manufacturing team. ;) However, I have a
feeling he wants no part in this operation. He’s a devout Christian and
is sure to disapprove of our methods for producing quick cash flow.
Hah! :)

My mom aka Magma

Official job description: Earth Science Director
Off the record: Has a degree in earth sciences (geography) so
she’ll be in charge of analyzing rock structures and all that so that
we can achieve our final aim: a worldwide underground tunnel system to
bypass the traditional air/land/sea smuggling routes and have our own
undetectable routes to distribute our goods. She’s also very interested
in plants so she can be our official horticulturist and cultivate
cannabis plants, poppies, coca plants etc. Again, I don’t think she
wants to be a part of this too. Heh. :)

My sister aka Doc

Official job description: Medical professional
Off the record: Final year med student. She’ll be responsible
for providing discreet medical care for the members of THE KOLLECTIVE.
The nature of our fund raising will inevitably lead to conflict with
other similar organizations and she’ll provide assistance for gunshot
wounds and other occupational hazards related to the business. Like my
mom and dad, she’ll be against our less than legal approach to achieve
intensive positive cash flow, so information should be supplied to her
on a “need to know” basis only. ;)

Michelle aka Ga|adriel

Official job description: Pharmaceuticals Director
Off the record: I’ll need her pharmacy background for drug
synthesis. She’ll also be the director of our pharmaceuticals
department so she’s also in charge of getting the precursor chemicals
for the synthesis. Since she’s a pharmacist, she can also prescribe us
with much needed benzos as running THE KOLLECTIVE is going to be a very
stressful and anxiety-inducing job. ;) She would also be the source for
‘diverted pharmaceuticals’ like benzos, (meth)amphetamines, morphine,
oxycodone, fentanyl and other legitimately prescribed drugs with
recreational potential which we can sell for additional income.

Anna aka bear_bear

Official job description: Public Relations
Off the record: Nothing off the record. She’s qualified to be
our public relations person since she did that for her degree. Her job
would be to convince the world that we’re a legitimate organization and
divert attention away from our illegal shenanigans and emphasize our
legitimate achievements. She’ll also be in charge of making periodic
donations to charity to build up our image as an organization who cares
for the community.

Karen aka mInjuEnz

Official job description: Accountant
Off the record: My girlfriend is qualified to hold this position
but I don’t want her involved in any illegal schemes so mInjuEnz will
be in charge of our financial bookkeeping instead. Heh. She’s doing
actuarial studies which is close enough to handle the finance side of
the business. She would also provide risk analysis for not only our
organization’s legitimate expansion but our drug cartel control and
expansion. She’s also in charge of doing some creative accounting to
conceal our money laundering.

Ung Hing aka Zion

Official job description: Aeronautical engineer
Off the record: He’s doing aeronautical engineering so he’s
going to do maintenance and possibly upgrade our currently non-existent
fleet of planes that’s carrying our precious chemical cargo while the
pipe network is awaiting completion. Who’s going to fly the planes?
Everyone takes turns. :) Okay, let’s all take flying lessons this
Easter break.

Diana aka ying

Official job description: Medical professional
Off the record: She’s also studying medicine and we need more than one doctor.

Datina aka LoLI_PoP

Official job description: Legal representative
Off the record: We’ll need more than one lawyer too, since
things can get bad very fast if our illegal activities happens to be
exposed. Otherwise, she’ll be working with frank to file frivolous
lawsuits against other companies for additional income

Justina aka Jus

Official job description: Medical professional
Off the record: You can’t have too many doctors. Or lawyers for that matter. :)

Okay, I’m going to stop here. I can’t believe I wasted an hour
writing this! Oh well, at least technically I didn’t lose an hour coz
today’s the end of daylight saving time. Haha! Writing nonsense is fun
though, I like doing that, which was why I started a blog in the first
place.

I have too much time on my hands.

No, wait…I don’t! My assignment awaits!

Add your name and any expertise or experience you have to the
comments if you want to join THE KOLLECTIVE. Join us now and rule the
world, or be ruled by our collective iron fists when we take over the
world and our reign is absolute and irrevocable!
Muahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

The Makan Place

makanfrt.jpg

I haven’t been to this place before. I went with a couple of my high
school buddies for dinner. It’s called The Makan Place and is located
at the corner of Princes Highway and Clayton Road. It serves authentic
Singapore Malay food. It’s a relatively new place, and it’s very clean
and neat.

makanin.jpg

I had nasi campur, which came out fast, but if you order off the
menu it’s going to take a long time. I think there’s only one cook, I
went to the toilet and passed by the kitchen and saw only one person
manning the stove. One of my friends ordered off the menu and it took
damn near 40 minutes for it to arrive. The turnaround rate might be due
to the fact that the place was full when we got there though.

makanfd.jpg

I like the place, it’s very clean. It feels like eating food back in Malaysia too. :)

I apologize that today’s post is so short. I had planned to spend
tonight catching up with my tutorial exercises and assignments so I can
be free during Easter break to do stuff. Planning to visit a couple of
places since it’s my last semester here. I just had a brainstorm about
my GSC2714 Alcohol and Drug Use assignment. I’m going to do the essay
topic on:

Present a reasoned argument for the legalization or
decriminalization of heroin, marijuana or ecstasy. Keep focused on the
psychological rather than social and legal consequences and
implications.

I was planning to write about cannabis, but I just had this great
idea for Ecstasy (MDMA) so I’m going to put that into words before I
forget about it. Right! Write!

Baker's Delight @ Clayton

bakerdel.jpg

I went to campus early today to print out my stuff and hand it in. I
saw this new shop in Clayton, which was previously occupied by a store
selling fruit that closed down recently. Now, it’s a spiffy new bakery
called Baker’s Delight. It’s still not open yet, as you can see. There
are cleaners and other people inside setting things up. I didn’t even
see the bakery a couple of days ago so all this must have happened in
the last couple of days. Now there are three bakeries within 50 meters
of each other. Heh.

500 mg dexamphetamine + 200 mg clonazepam = success!

Disclaimer: This post and all other drug related posts is made by veritas, who is a guest author on this blog. The owner of this domain is not responsible for the posts made by any guest authors.

clonadex.jpg
Today’s haul: Stimulants and tranquilizers in a single day. Hmm…both
of them are white tablets, I hope I don’t mix them up when I put them
back. Taking dexamphetamine when you’re expecting a benzodiazepine or
vice versa would be unfortunate indeed.

I had a successful run today. :) I got 100 x 2 mg Paxam (clonazepam)
and 100 x 5 mg dexamphetamine tablets. The first visit was to the Benzo Messiah
[sixthseal.com], where I claimed that the “pills didn’t feel right and
I found out that I was actually taking 2 mg ones instead of 0.5 mg
ones”. Guess what the doctor said? He just said okay, and took out his
script pad! Amazing. You know what’s even more amazing? He said:

“So what was it you were taking again? Xanax?”

My mind went into overdrive. Here’s what my thought process was:

Xanax!
100 x 2 mg of Xanax!
200 mg of Xanax! Say Yes, for Christ’s sake, say Yes!
But wait…I need Klonopin to sleep after a dexamphetamine run…clonazepam makes me sleep but alprazolam doesn’t.
Stupid! Xanax is much more euphoric! Say YES!
Yeah, it’s more euphoric, but it doesn’t make me sleepy. How will I manage amphetamine comedowns?
It’s Xanax! The doctor is offering to script you 100 x 2 mg Xanax bars! Have you finally tweaked yourself stupid???
But 200 mg of Xanax…I’m not sure I’m responsible enough to handle that. Xanax withdrawal is hell.
Who cares? Euphoria buddy, fucking euphoria…couple of beers,
couple of Xanax bars, couple of bowls of weed…think man, think about
the fun times!

Hmm…
Say Yes
Hmm…

(all this happened in milliseconds)

“Nah, it was clonazepam”, I said

:)

2mgpaxam.jpg
100 x 2 mg clonazepam tablets (Paxam)

It’s true that Xanax (alprazolam) is much more euphoric than
Klonopin (clonazepam) but I’ve learnt to respect Xanax after taking up
to 5 mg daily with alcohol during my last holiday. Benzodiazepine
withdrawals are bad, especially with Xanax since it has such a short
half life. Just one month of daily use fucked me up for days when I
stopped. I can’t even imagine how bad it is for people who’ve used it
at higher doses and longer periods of times. I have a good friend who’s
on it for years (legitimate prescription for anxiety and panic attacks)
and I can’t even imagine how bad the withdrawal would be for her when
she wants to taper off.

Well, those of you who’ve taken benzos regularly at high doses for
prolonged periods and then stop suddenly know what I’m taking about.
It’s hard to explain benzo withdrawals to the uninitiated. There’s the
ultra-heightened anxiety and recurring obsessive thoughts and panic
attacks. There’s also the possibility of seizures if you’ve been on it
long enough, but that usually take months or years of heavy use. It’s a
wonder that a legitimate pharmaceutical drug produces worse physical
and psychological withdrawals than most illegal drugs. I don’t trust
myself with 200 mg of Xanax, so that’s why I told the truth and said it
was clonazepam. :)

2mgpaxtb.jpg
The 2 mg clonazepam tablets are white, with “CN2″ imprinted on the front, and a dual score at the back

“Okay”, went the good doctor and scripted me and I was out within 2
minutes. 200 mg of clonazepam can cause a lot of trouble too, but I’m
not going to take it daily, my new policy is for it to be a weekend
thing when drinking or for comedowns only.

All hail the Benzo Messiah!

The next trip was to Doctor Dexamphetamine. Very hassle free as
well. I haven’t told you the story behind this, so I’ll give you an
abbreviated version now about what happened last time. Basically, I
just went in and claimed I have been on Dexedrine (a brand name of
dexamphetamine) since I was 19. I didn’t say dexamphetamine because I
wanted to avoid using the word ‘amphetamine’. :)

If you’re wondering what dexamphetamine is and why it’s so good,
it’s because it’s speed. Legally prescribed speed. :) This is the same
thing you get off the streets in the form of powder and pills (like
some of the feng tau yuen pills that makes you unable to sleep, though
that can contain either methamphetamine or amphetamine) and it’s pure
and clean because it’s made by a pharmaceutical company instead of a
dodgy chemist. ;)

283dex.jpg
Made very locally by Sigma Pharmaceuticals at 1408, Center
Road, Clayton (!) I’ve seen their production facility before too. Won’t
I love to go on a tour of their labs.

Anyway, I’m digressing, this is what I told the doctor the first time I went there:

I said I was diagnosed with narcolepsy (it’s a condition where you
suddenly fall asleep, occasional temporary paralysis etc) and excessive
daytime sleepiness and I was prescribed dexamphetamine to manage that.
I told him I usually get my script filled in Malaysia and bring enough
for the whole semester, but unfortunately customs confisticated my
stash because I didn’t have an Australian doctor’s prescription.

The doctor considered my story and then decided I was telling the
truth. :) It really helped that I looked half asleep that day. I didn’t
get much sleep the night before in anticipation for that. I told him
that I thought I could do without it, but it’s really affecting my
studies and I’ve been sleeping 14 hour days and falling asleep in
lectures etc. He asked me what my symptoms were, which of course I knew
because I’ve been reading up on narcolepsy. I never forget the mantra: Always do your research! ;) He scripted me 100 x 5 mg dexamphetamine tablets and off I went.

That was about a month ago. I went back again today and the doctor
just wrote me a script without any hassles, though he did a bit of
calculation in his head to see if I was due for the script. :) He went,
“Yeah it’s been 25 days”. I tentatively asked if it was wise to
increase the dosage, which was a mistake, because I was hit with a
barrage of questions after that. :)

He asked me a lot of questions about why I wanted do that. I said I
was still feeling sleepy at times and he re-asked me my symptoms on
narcolepsy which I thankfully managed to answer despite being partially
memory-incapacitated from my heavy benzo use these couple of days.
Anyway, he didn’t get suspicious, thank God for that! You hear me God?
Thanks for that, I owe you one buddy! :)

How I wish both bottles were full instead of just one

Anyway, he wrote me a script and asked me how much it costs. It’s
A$30.35 for 100 tablets and the doctor said it’s expensive and asked me
how much it cost in Malaysia. I was caught by surprise by the
unexpected question, and made up a figure. Sheesh, I should be more
prepared next time. Well, after thanking the doctor profusely (I think
I thanked him a little too profusely) I made my way to the pharmacy to
get my dex script filled.

Tell you a funny thing that happened there. I got my script filled
by the pharmacist and went to the counter to pay for it. The girl at
the counter, who’s about my age, took one look at the bottle and gave
me a grin and asked me what it’s for. I said it’s for my narcolepsy.
She went “Oh, that’s terrible” and gave me a huge grin. I think she
somehow knew I was a scripter. Instinct from a fellow scripter?

She asked me some questions about my ‘condition’ and made small talk
and was really friendly, all the time looking at the bottle lovingly.
After I paid, she gave me a knowing wink and said “Have a nice day”. I
didn’t wink back because this is after all a pharmacy and even though
the cashier isn’t the pharmacist and is just working there, being
indiscreet might jeopardize my scripting activities. I just smiled and
said “You have a nice day too”. She knew what was going on though. For some reason, she just knew. Heh. :)

Well there I go again with my verbal diarrhea. You know I’m tweaking
when I go on like that. :) It’s like dexamphetamine is my muse and I
use it to complete assignments and work too. I think some form of
psychological dependence is happening here. I’ll be careful though, so
don’t worry about me. :)

Hungry Jack inside a Shell station

shellbk.jpg

I’m really busy with the hurdle requirements for one of my
assignments which is due tomorrow, so here’s a photo from my collection
to entertain you. I took it a couple of weeks ago, and it’s a Hungry
Jack (a Burger King franchise) inside a Shell station. How
convenient. I’ve never seen a fast food outlet inside a gas station
before. Convenience store, yes. Fast food outlet, no. :)

Wednesday

I enjoyed my tutorial today. Where else can you surf websites as
tutorial exercises? Heh. It’s a first year subject I took because I’m
still eligible to take those since I took mostly 3rd year subjects in
my second and third year. :) There’s an assignment due in 2 weeks but
that’s an easy one…could probably finish it in one night. This is a 9
am class, but it’s not that bad, coz it’s held in Clayton. I live at
the halls of residence in Clayton so it’s just a couple of minutes
walk. I’m glad I took two Clayton subjects this semester. The other two
are Caulfield ones so the commute takes much longer. My faculty is
based in Caulfield though.

Well, Easter break is coming along soon and that’s a one week
holiday for us. I’ve seen a lot of chocolate Easter eggs of all shapes
and sizes, including huge ass 1 kg ones. However, I’ve never seen these
before. Cadbury’s Hot Cross Marshmallow Buns! I also picked up some
liquorish. I love that stuff, though not many people do because it’s
one of those things you either love or hate.

Anyway, I finally deleted my domain from the previous host coz it
was causing problems within the Monash network. I live at halls so that
affects me. I won’t go into the technical details but the way the DNS
server at halls assigns serial numbers makes it think my old host is
the newest entry instead of my new host. It’s been 6 days so my new
name server has probably propagated to even Afghanistan so deleting the
old one shouldn’t be a problem.

Well, migrating Movable Type to the new host was not as easy as I
thought. The database dump managed to load, but logging in gave me an
error. I tried dropping the mt_permissions table and it worked, but
then I lost my user name association with my blog. I tried running some
SQL statements, but nothing worked, so I had to import it using Movable
Type’s import system. What this means is that the pages are renumbered
so all the internal links are messed up. I’ll fix that this weekend.

Hmm…should I eat Indomie tonight or Yum Yum? I used to eat a lot of
this stuff back when I was studying in Christchurch, NZ. I only like
the duck flavored ones, it’s really good and quite spicy so if you see
it around, give it a try. I only saw this in Melbourne a couple of
weeks ago and was happy to find it. Ah…nostalgia. :)

Xanax scripting

Mosaic on doctor’s handwriting, script number and other possible identifiers

I got a Xanax (alprazolam) script off my regular doctor (the Benzo Nazi) last Friday. You probably have to read this
[sixthseal.com] to understand the background. I had wanted to visit the
Benzo Messiah and get 100 x 2 mg Klonopin (clonazepam) tablets by
claiming that it wasn’t working, so I called back to my doctor back
home and realized it was 2 mg pills after all. I made two appointments
but the Benzo Messiah was not in both times coz he was sick. I have
made another appointment for this Friday, and I’ll probably visit Doctor Dexamphetamine [sixthseal.com] on the same day, so wish me luck! :)

Pharmacia Xanax 250 microgram 50 tablets – Made in Belgium

Anyway, I was kinda worried when I visited Benzo Nazi. My pupils were absolutely huge
from my dexamphetamine run, and I tried to avoid eye contract to give
myself away, but I think the doctor didn’t pick it up anyway. Anyway, I
just told him the Aropax (also known as Paxil, contains paroxetine)
wasn’t working and I went to another doctor and he scripted me 0.25 mg
of Xanax twice a day and it helped a lot. This of course was not true,
and I do feel bad about being untruthful. It may surprise a lot of you,
but being untruthful makes feel me guilty and I don’t do it unless I’m
doctor shopping for scripts.

Pill front: Upjohn 29
Pill back: Single score, beveled edges

I told him that the other (fictional) doctor gave me only a two week
supply and I changed my story by telling him I’m aware that it’s
addictive, but it really helps me with my anxiety. Of course, I didn’t
visit another doctor, I just wanted to try an alternative angle to see
if he would prescribe me Xanax. Well, long story short, he did. :) He
actually wanted to script me Valium but I told him that makes me too
sleepy and I needed to concentrate in class and he went “Oh, yeah,
that’s true”. :)

He scripted me 50 x 0.25 mg Xanax tablets on the condition that I
make an appointment with a clinical psychiatrist to evaluate me. The
Xanax is only enough for 5 recreational doses if I combine it with
alcohol or 2.5 recreational doses if I don’t. I usually take 2.5 mg +
alcohol or 5 mg by itself. The script isn’t much, but I didn’t want to
blow it by saying I was scripted 0.5 mg or 1 mg pills by the fictional
other doctor because standard prescribing procedure is 0.25 mg at
first. I don’t think it’s worth the A$15.05 I paid for it, but at least
the consultation is free.

Update: My math is so screwed up. It’s actually cheaper than the prices back home so it is worth it. Very much so. :)

Reflections

I wasn’t feeling too good due to my binge on dexamphetamine. How is
that possible when I’ve nearly finished my stash a couple of days ago,
you ask? Well, I have acquired some more from…ah, the ‘diverted
pharmaceuticals’ market you if you get what I mean. ;) I’ll be
refilling my legitimate script this Friday anyway, so more is coming
in, no worries. I am concerned that I like this stuff a little too much
though, so I’m going to reflect very hard on that.

My concern is due to the way I binge on these tiny white pills for
days, forgoing sleep and food. I guess some personalities naturally
have an affinity to stimulants, making it hard control consumption.
Some serious reflection is needed indeed to manage my usage. I know
binging is usual behavior for speed freaks but I’ll like to keep my
usage experimental and recreational instead of becoming dependant on
the stuff. By the end of the run, I was getting paranoid an slightly
delusional. I’m seeing a greenish tint on my hands too whenever I look
at them and visual distortions everywhere.

I actually had 100 mg of Valium (diazepam) and stayed awake after my
speed binge. That kind of tolerance is not unheard of, but it’s
unacceptable to me, so I’m going to watch my benzo usage as well. I
don’t feel guilty about smoking cannabis daily though, due to its
comparatively benign nature. I think at some point you have to give
yourself a critical appraisal and evaluate whether you’re still a
recreational drug user or becoming dependant on them, regardless of
whether it’s pharmaceuticals or prohibited ones.
