HBH 263

Too cold to go out;
Sofa-bound for ten long weeks.
Cabin fever looms.

Gawd, the winters in Beijing can be miserable. Today is set to be the first day that it doesn't get above freezing during the day. It's likely to stay this way all the way through to mid-February. Shiver.

And it's a horrible time to be a bar owner, because most of the wealthier expats quit the country altogether for extended Christmas breaks, while we paupers just skulk at home under the duvet working through our libraries of DVDs.
