Jun and I went to Costco the other day to get all the last minute things we need for the Thanksgiving party we are throwing this weekend with my co-workers and other foreign friends. I think we may have gone a little overboard…
BUT! Costco here in Japan was selling whole frozen turkeys! We ought a 10 pound bird(/∀＼*))ｷｬﾊ♪”
In other new, I have come down with something. I ended up going to the hospital today…for 4 hours. Two of those were spent just sitting in the waiting room while I suffered with a fever. I then took the influenza test which consisted of the nurse shoving a long cotton swap up my nose and twirling it around for a few seconds. Totally took me by surprise! In summary, I do not have any form of the flu (swine or any other), but due to a lot of my symptoms, the doctor wanted to do some blood work to check a few other things. My joints have been hurting a lot recently – specifically my knees – so he is running some tests for arthritis and bone…something something. A lot of the conversation was way above my Japanese level. Will e brining my DS and Japanese software with me next visit when I get my results in.
In any case, I think I will be taking sick leave the rest of the week so I can get back on my feet.
