The State of My Sinuses (part 1,000,918)

This cold is fucking ridiculous. I woke up at 4:30 this morning unable to hear through either ear or breathe through my nose. Tylenol doesn't work, cold medicine doesn't work, hot showers don't do anything, my neti pot works for about two minutes until my nose clogs up again. This is just about as bad as my first cold here in Korea, which started the day I went skiing. That weekend was a nightmare: I was in so much pain I wasn't sure which was more to blame, the skiing or the cold.

Needless to say, I am unhappy with the state of my sinuses. If they don't shape up soon, this weekend is going to blow. On the other hand, I'm not coughing anywhere near as much as I was last night, so that's a plus. And I was able to go to the gym and not die, which makes me feel good about myself.

Tomorrow I may or may not be taking Korean classes downtown. Haven't decided yet. If I'm awake (and not dead) I'll probably do it. Then some of us will go for Nepalese food. (Maybe, if plans haven't changed yet again.) I want to get the spiciest curry they've got... maybe then I'll be able to taste it. sigh.

I'm going to take a nap before work. Maybe it'll make me feel better.
