    Stroller can you lend me 1000 baht?

    Contarary to popular belief I have never actually borrowed money from anyone in Thailand, despite having accepted beer charity in the early days of TV when everyone wanted to meet me in the flesh and see if I was 'for real' - so now I'm actually going to do it because my brother who is in Samui owes me 300 pounds which I can't get until he returns.

    Other than that I get paid on Friday but I only have 400 baht until then and I've given half of that to Sandra and told her to use it sparingly and keep it for food - so she's spent most of it already on Dove conditioner and vapour rub.

    So, Stroller old chum - could you lend us a thousand until the weekend?

    If you can I will take Sandra to meet you and I will also give you a rare version of Autobahn by Kraftwerk - though to be honest it's probably not heavy and gothic enough for you so nevermind.

    So how's about it?
    "I'm an outsider by choice, but not truly. It's the unpleasantness of the system that keeps me out. I'd rather be in, in a good system. That's where my discontent comes from: being forced to choose to stay outside.
    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    How are you going to get to Stroller to get the money?

    Or do you want him to deliver it?

    I've been working part time as a window cleaner in Bang kapi, I think I'm the only farang in Thailand who does it, but I'm freelance.

    Friday is tomorrow Scamp.
    400 won't last until then, I'm not willing to sacrifice the ground peanuts and yoghurt on my fruit salad.

    You can put what you want on a fruit salad so long as it's a legal substance.

    I thought you left the eternally recurring "have-not" status well behind you to join Bruce Willis for lunch in the Banyan?

    But sure, why not?
    A 1000bt note is waiting here for you to be collected.
    But you got to hurry to get here before Friday, which is tomorrow.

    What job do you do ? You seem to be constant involved in roaming adventures... I couldn't picture you having a salaried job lad!

    The Banyan Days are behind me now mate, and it wasn't Bruce Willis it was Willem Dafoe.

    I didn't realize Friday was tomorrow, I can probably last until then providing I don't spend it getting a taxi over to your place, cheers anyway, who said Germans were tight.

    I would love to have a saleried job but it would bore me to tears, I don't even know where I want to live yet or how to invest me nest egg.

    I make a few bob playing the accordion at this lake in Pratunam but it dried up recently.

    Is it the countryside?

    It means - ban cows... A mere play on words, is all.

    It means living space or Lebensraum... But without the negative connotations of the latter.

    Moo ban= is like a neighborhood or community
    Moo= is like a street or area
    Ban = house of course

    I am sure you can understand what the 2 together might mean

    I can speak Thai, I just don't know what Moo Ban means, I'm a city slicker see.

    I'm English but that doesn't mean that I know what NB means.
