Saying hello to the year of the rooster

What are you doing for Chinese New Year, came the message on my telephone.

Lying languidly on the sofa, I look out of the window at a grey sky, dirty buildings and the rain. I wonder if it would not be too inappropriate to reply “drinking tea, reading French novels, and listening to possibly romantic Japanese songs that I cannot hope to understand”.
