 There's this cultural practice here where people will wear a mask if they have a cold in order to reduce the risk of passing it on to others. Very considerate. Unfortunately, it doesn't do shit if you are in a crowded place and then TAKE THE MASK OFF when you need to sneeze! Bloody moron did this in Shanghai while we were in line for a tourist attraction. I blame her. This is all her fault. 

Yep, sick again. It's only day one of the sick and I already can't stand up properly. This is a particularly bad problem given that one of my students LOST MY MEDKIT on the Great Wall, the trainee in charge of the first aid stuff hasn't arranged a new one for me yet, and the entire medical supply is on the first floor while I live on the 5th. We have no lift, and the dumbwaiter hasn't worked in the entire 15-year history of this place (not to my knowledge, anyway).

Phil is even more sick than I am, which doesn't help matters. It means that *neither* of us is in any kind of shape to be traipsing around campus, collecting things we need. And I have work to do. I was going to do some field research and come up with some activities at various sites we visit with the students, but that's not an option now given I can barely walk across my apartment, let alone make it down the stairs or around the city.

THIS IS SO STUPID AND ANNOYING AND I HATE IT SO MUCH.

Worst case, I can call the school nurse and ask her very politely to please bring up some medication for us, but I'm hoping to avoid that. 

Seriously pissed off right now.
