or is it, starve a cold, feed a fever?? Doesn’t matter either way because I’ve been feeding it. I am going on what is now my third head cold this winter and can’t help but wonder why? Is it 17 million people in one city? The pollution? The men who insist on blowing their noses onto the sidewalk??
God forbid it curb my appetite for one day, au contraire mon gie gie, I am constantly hungry. I want a pork bun, followed by dumplings and then a bowl of noodles…athletes know it as “carboload”. As I’m not currently training for the next Olympics, I decided I better up the calorie burn during this cold, Shanghainese winter by staying put longer on the exercise machine. To do so, I decided to start bringing dvds to watch so I wouldn’t want to hang myself from the impending boredom. When a “friend” (I shouldn’t mention her name) moved back to the States she gave me her box set of Gossip Girl which I took out of politeness but never had any intention of watching, I mean come on, I’m not 18 yrs. old and anyway those actors all have weird mouth movements, it’s bizarre. Well let me tell you I just finished the last episode of season 3 and I can hardly wait to get my boney little fingers on Season 4. I need an intervention. People, I did not come all the way to China to WATCH THIS MESS. Alas, I’m hooked and I hate you Natalie for giving it to me. ooooops.
