I have a terrible, awful cold. I think it's the flu, actually. (I love the word "influenza," by the way.)

I'm still woolly-headed and nauseous, but it was a thousand times worse on Thursday and Friday. Thank goodness for Lunar New Year, which means that I don't have to go to work until Wednesday.

My refrigerator amuses me right now. Inventory:

- Oriental herbal medicine.
- One chunk of very sharp Cheddar.
- One chunk of aged Gouda.
- One quarter wheel of Stilton.
- Six apples.
- Twelve clementines (tangerines?- whatever 귤 translates to).
- Spam.
- Tofu.
- Eggs.
- Chocolate.
- Rice porridge.

What a weird list, I think. Anyone would come in and immediately assume I wasn't Korean- that's an indecent amount of cheese (which I brought with me from the States- don't judge me, there's no good cheese here!).

So, so ill. I'm attempting to clean a little, between bouts of wooziness.

Anyway, here's hoping that my health kicks up a notch once the new year starts (tomorrow)!

At least you have 귤 for some Vitamin D. Combined with lots of fluids hopefully you'll be better soon!

Thanks! Just have a cough left, but mostly all better now. ^^
