    Off to Kaosan Road - Oh the irony!

    Well I am off to Kaosan Rd for the first time since December 2005, meeting a mate who had the good sense to quit the funfair earlier than I did yet still sees KSR as his base even with half a dozen years of Thailand under his belt.

    I hear it's not the ramshackle backpacker street it once was but now a trendy, upmarket cobbled street that closes at 1am.

    Is this this really an improvement? I quite liked the place once upon a time during those early years, I wonder if it's still full of dreadlocked twats and 19 year old boys with bumfluff beards walking about barefoot to show how 'at one' they are with Thailand.

    I wonder if the farang girls who go there still feel the need to make themselves as unnatractive as possible by getting Floella Benjamin beady locks whatever you call them, and I wonder if I will be sick to death of James Blunt or will the cd stalls (if still there and not replaced by branches of Hermes and Starbucks) be playing to death the latest indie bandwaggon pap.

    I'll be back with a full report.

    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    ^ I haven't been there for over 2 years now. A lot of nice freelancers though. Dress nice and you will fuck them for free

    ^I think he might report in the morning if he's gone to bed MM.

    I might go to bed soon, or maybe not.

    If not, I'll report why.

    Or maybe I'll go for a shower and then report and then go to bed.

    Oh dear

    ^I just had two jam sandwiches, my appetite has just returned after a week of little eating.

    i would have liked a cheese & pickle sandwich, but CMN is too tight to bring me one.

    I haven't had a shower yet, but I'm thinking about it.

    Who is James Blunt?

    Ok, I'll answer my own question (sorry LC, posted at same time)

    James Blunt (born James Hillier Blount, February 22, 1974) is a BRIT Award winning, 5 times Grammy Nominated, English singer-songwriter whose debut album, Back to Bedlam, and single releases — especially the number one hit "You're Beautiful" — brought him to fame in 2005

    No 'r' either for those who like to call them 'sarnies' (pet hate word).

    ^Well all the talk of food made me hungry, so I've had a Nori Seaweed flavour Lays crisp butty - this didn't go down too well and I'm feeling a bit poorly again - strange because I would think it is a very well balanced meal.
