    Is it just me or do Thai ambulances all have apologetic toy-like sirens?

    Goes without saying, but should I grow by nails too?

    You no serious. By definition:
    (especially in the 1960s) a person of unconventional appearance, typically having long hair and wearing beads, associated with a subculture involving a rejection of conventional values and the taking of hallucinogenic drugs.

    A farang has moved into my village, the first one since me 13 years ago.
    Great a drinking buddy and someone to talk to, not to be, German, no English, can't drink medical condition.
    Figure he will last 2 or 3 weeks, can't eat the food, can't stand the heat, but built a house and retired here, yesterday.

    Sounds like he should be the one with the moan. You, at least, are no worse off with his appearance, or didn't make that apparent with your moan. At worst, your complaint is that a wish didn't come true, eh?

    True, but I was hoping for a drinking buddy, know his misses, so drove to Ubon to pick him up from the airport, 140 km away. Only to find out no English and no booze, big let down, back to being a solitary drunk.

    My gf asked this morning if she could have this month's 'maintenance allowance' early. I replied, "Sorry, you should have thought about that prior to buying the Samsung cell last week."

    This is not meant as a moan. Just the usual rigmarole.
    The money is deposited on the third of each month into her savings account.

    She actually should be applauded for coming within two days of her budget. That's exactly why I like her...truly. (thumbs up)

    Not having a drinking bud is a worthwhile moan, come to think of it but, um, mentioning your sacrifice in time and money (fuel) now will allow me to thank you for him.

    Yeh,long time died now, and another non English speaker with a medical condition, so no booze.

    The last drinking buddy was a Norwegian, about 6 km away, he did like a beer or 10, dropped dead in the Ubon airport some years ago.

    Guess it's me and the dogs, as per normal, almost beer o'clock now and as luck would have it, my beer fridge has stopped working. Will have to go and get some ice, or go on to blend 285.

    Good old jeff. More thai than the thais, more asian than the asians.

    If only we all could learn from his integrative (assimilative) non conditioning of eurocentric preconditions.






    Or maybe not, as we would all sound like cheap yoda knock off wankers....

    There are things called ice boxes, ice goes in, beer goes in, but do use a insulated mug, wholes a bottle, couple of ice cubes, cold till the end.

    On the German front, nice guy, came around for dinner with a box of Leo, on number 6 now.
    Doing my cigarette run tomorrow to Lao, jungle land border market, no passports, no immigration, he seems to think we will get shot.

    Will have to wind him up a bit, give him a big knife and tell him to take a Rambo state of mind.
    Reality, 2 unarmed Thai border soldiers who give you a plastic token with a number to come back and 2 Lao customs guys who are too lazy to move.

    Electricity arrived about 10 years ago, local conversation is have you eaten, have started drinking, what will you eat or start drinking, who's sleeping with who, or soap opera's.
    Talk of talking trees or ghosts doesn't holed much interest, they could have nuclear out there in the world, but here it would be good smelling rice or not.

    Not really, every western booze is fake, Chinese whiskey called black [johnny walker] 25 to 30 Baht a bottle.
    Strange thing is you can by beer Lao in cans and take them back, but not bottles.
    Few farangs have ever been there, it's Thai Lao thing, want, jungle meat, monkey, ant eater or other endangered animal, plus AKs that's the place.
    If you ever, or anyone wants to go see I'm happy to take you.

    All his posts sound that way. No-one pays any attention to them. That's why he should fuck off. Isn't that right Jeff?
