The worst thing about being sick in a foreign country is television. I can live without Vicks Vapor Rub, Sucrets, and Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup, but I can’t live with just one English language channel!
My entertainment choices boil down to watching our wedding DVD over and over again (it’s the only DVD at my disposal that is formatted for our French DVD player) or viewing regurgitated news broadcasted on the BBC about Prince William’s break-up, World Sports featuring cricket, and a program about global warming - which only reminds me what a shit I am for leaving my T.V. on watching programming on a loop and then complaining about it. I decided to boot-up my computer and write this for good measure.
