Let's see, I woke up today at 12:00p.m and saw the foreigners, the brits and the irishman Ron, I always see him in the morning, then I went to the train station to go to fortune city I paid $0.60 for some stank cutlet pork egg and rice, it was bloody nasty, and I also had some water, then I went back to the lodge and met up with Chris the Canadian and we decided to go to the movies with the two South Africans, Dylan and Ronelle, we hopped back on the metro train and twenty minutes later we were in downtown Bangkok, we went to this mall called MBK which is one of the biggest malls I have ever been too ,there must hae been at least 200 cell phone stores, and 200 camera stores, I wonder how anyone makes money when the shop next to you sells the exact same thing ,Chris bought a camera for $200 less than what he would have paid in Canada... we walked around for ages and finally went to the movies, we saw the Chronicles of Narnia and got the VIP seats, the seats cost $6.00, and with this you get a layzboy seat and a blanket, which you would need because they keep it super cold the whole time, and no we did not share a blanket.... the movie was alright, and very long... overall I would say to rent it and not see it in the theatre... we then rode the skytrain back, think Marta, but 10 times bigger, and 100 times more efficient, I then walked to a street cafe and ordered some noodles, my first real meal of the day since I couldn't eat that terrible cutlet pork disaster.. so all in all I spent about 8 bucks and was busy the whole day... not too shabby if you ask me... talk to ya later...
So what is going on Mates ? I am having a great time in Bangkok, being as good as I can be.. anyone else who wants to jump ship and join me will see what I am talking about.... Life here is so different.. what they say here is "Same Same but different"... sure there are big corporations, but they are not all invasive like they are in the US..don't get me wrong the US has its advantages... like HOT WATER... besides that I do not miss much.. I do miss the telly (TV) and I am missing out on 24, I think the whole time here I have just watched about an hour of TV.
It is a little difficult not speaking Thai but I am learning a few words each day.... I have lost 5lbs already... might be that I am not used to the heat, or it might be that I have eaten less... and the good thing here is that there is alot of variety in the foods, I am not stuck eating rice everyday like I did in Cambodia... For breakfast, I will go down to the street and have some fresh squeezed orange juice, and some noodles with seafood or beef, for lunch I like to get a smoothie, and for dinner, some rice or something else, the portions are A LOT SMALLER, but I do not get hungry. Also this is heaven for me since I adore spicy food.
The people at the lodge where I'm staying are very interesting and fun to talk too. There damned accents keep getting in the way, and often times I am completely lost in their conversations, but all is well !!
Once again, sorry for the lack of pictures, but I promise that they will come!! I hope everyone is doing ok and the Northland is going strong !! Alex, you better not be molesting my cat.... I'd like to take a moment for a small chronic break !! and a nice big WILD GYPSY LOVERS.. to cornbread and coacoa pebbles, and brittani, I can't complain and I am really glad that I made this choice... remember that you have to make your own dreams come true and live and love life...and also the Thai girls are very beautiful which is a plus... take care and send me some comments you bloody wankers-----(influence from the brits) and it is true, everyone does hate america, but they like me... go figure !!
What is up gang ? I hope everyone is doing well and the weather is not so cold. It is blistering hot here, and I have burnt holes in my underwear. We went to a water park from the 80's yesterday. It was very good fun. Later on we went out for some drinks on Sukhmvit Rd. After one oclock the bars shut down and the outside bars open. It is quite interesting because if you go on one street, the prostitutes walk up and down the street all morning long. One walked up to us and said theat her name was "Cake" she said that she worked in the German embassy and helped people get Visa's... she then told us the rest of her life story... it was quite amusing.. then she asked here we were staying... she said that we all looked like movie stars... I was so drunk by this point that I could not stop laughing... I spit my beer out on her, and she said that it was ok because she said " I love you... No Shit !!"
wut up bitches !!... well life so far in Thailand is great !!!, I have been hanging around a bunch of foreigners, and they don't even bite !!, or leave crotch rot !!.... i started my first day of teacher training and it went very well... we have a class of 14 with people from all over the world... i'm talkin about singapore, finland,germany, new zealand, a zoo yorker, some brits, and some damned mexicans.. just kidding about the mexicans, they don't let them into the country, OUCH !!...send that to Matt Rey and tell him how it feels.. i will be getting a phone number soon... got to go and leave... will update soon bitches !!!
Props to you Cruella for having us have a great time for your birthday... I am glad that I got to come... The food was excellent, I didn't have to pay a thing except for one drink which was even better and I got some great video from the whole thing. The list of invitee's included and were not limited to: PresentNot Present Cruella Trey Treybein Jasmine Daniel Julio Jason Sandy Sara Joe Alex Me Cathy Frank
I was asked by an older gentleman if I could get Daniel to be his date. Daniel blushed and then went to the bathroom for some recovery.. I think he was already on the Scotchy Scotch.... then I heard one of the sadest poems in my life by Cornbread. It was something about Cruella's penis being a metaphor or shaped like a Unicorn Horn... well Cornbread was into it big time. He made a ridiculous bet with Cathy about the amount of times that he would reference "Unicorn" throughout the night. She was not pleased with him at all, and I can think of a couple of other people who were as displeased the first time they met him as well. But he was a good sport and we had a good time with him.. he was just Daniel being Daniel...later we sang Happy Birthday and the whole restaurant joined in, which was fun, but then we were outdid by the table adjacent to us and we had to outdo them, so we compromised and Allen sat on the birthday ladys lap and we sang a joint-birthday song... it was great...
Round 2: Decatur can you hear me ?
We stopped by Cathys house, courtesy of some excellent driving by Trey... we chilled, had some Vodka and were out.
Round 3: Did I just see, what I think I just saw ?.. I really did, and for that I took the road less traveled.....
We met up with Alex and Sara and Trey & Arthur and Jasmine and Frank and a couple others... we then witnessed the transformation of Allen into the "Gin Blossom" and all hell broke loose.... Cruella came out in a prom dress with the tierra in all its glory... we then witnessed him dance and ramble on and on about a Non Jewish Tradition that Trey recently started performing. Trey just wanted to put some water in a little bowl. We did not know this and were using it as an Ash Trey all night, and this infuriated Cruealla, who went on to ramble incoherently about something else for a while... I do not know, perhaps I was under a spell, made by the concoction of Trey and Cruella.. they combined Gin Whiskey, Grapefruit & Pineapple Juice to make some umm uummm good stuff... I left wanting to see more, but you know how that goes..you can't always get what you want... or can you ? OPEN YOUR EYES
Man do I love Malt Liquor... I was given the ausome present of some Colt 45, a beverage only broken out for the special occasions, like the return of the nugget !!... I was just demonstrating how fast I could polish down some good brew.. Everyone wanted to know if I still had some "brother soul" left in me... I showed them, and once I was finished I jumped up and yelled "SHOBOIGAN !!!"
