So it is relatively un-cold here. Oh yes it is.
If you feel its cold, relative to what you remember from home, and you come from a relatively cold country, thats YOU, not it.
Quantative shuantative, relative shmelative.
Sure, ok, it's me! To me

Revenge will be sweet (in the blast furnace that is summer), when these folks are whining about the heat! Bwahahahaha!
Well, revenge is here, but its not the heat, its the WET. This is BY FAR the worst summer I've had here.
My clothes are mouldy (the cotton stuff probably irrecoverably, though fortunately I mostly buy synthetics),
My bedding is mouldy, especially the pillows which I'll have to throw away.
My car seats and carpets are mouldy (I've removed the carpet and may chuck it away if I can get through inspection without it)
A few weeks ago my ear was mouldy, and I now have a persistent cough which suggests my lungs may be mouldy.
Aircon would probably help but my dorm room aircon is on some fucked-up mysterious Chinese schedule which never seems to correspond with when I'm in, so I've been relying on open windows and fans.
Not good enough. I'll try spraying vinegar or bleach, but I suspect any respite will be temporary and it'll just come back.
Think I need a shack with no walls.
