this is why we don't have to drink at our house

i promise to write something about the wonderful trip to China, but right now i'm just trying to stay sitting upright without being too dizzy. a stealthy, swift bout of flu decided to hit me two days ago and i'm still attempting to convince myself that dry toast and Pedialyte are actually quite tasty.
yesterday afternoon, due to my general weakness/vertigo/fact that i had no sleep due to stomach cramps, i somehow managed to badly pinch my hand and give myself a nasty blood blister right in the middle of my fourth finger. T.T., who has been a very creative and patient nurse throughout, decided it needed some character enhancement. luckily, there is always a Sharpie lying around the house within easy reach. the results are brilliant, don't you think? we of course had to sing:

Rudolph the red-nosed Handdeer
had a very bloody nose
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it's gross...

then we laughed so hard T.T. fell off his chair and snot came out of my nose.
i swear, we always act like this whether or not one of us is running a high temperature...
