    I've been doing as little as possible for as long as possible.


    I saw a slogan on the side of a contractors truck the other day. It read, "We do what we say."

    I thought to myself thats why they ain't talking.

    Thats a problem between you and your missus. If she ain't supporting you, you are dead in the water.

    Trust me, my missus family know the limits.

    People need to realise - and most don't care - I understand that....

    If you want to be with hot chick in LOS and (more difficult) US (the west).

    You basically only need to:

    Dress clean.
    Have good hygiene appearance
    Positive and funny personality
    Be fit (mostly).

    Be direct in a respectful way about being interested in her.

    That's about it.

    Cash and carry for Pizza then?

    I know it's none of my business but do you have any pics of these LOS gals. I've seen several on Cheep Charlies youtube channel. I honestly believe you could one-up him.

    I spend a good part of the day bouncing between his and Thailand Robs vids. My favorites are SV Delos, Gone whith the Wynns and Sailing UMA. Oh, and Abandon Comfort. So yea, I guess we are similar in that we are both dreamers, no?

    I'm dreaming of the day I can sail out of here. Not that reality sucks for the fish but I have a few goals to score before I can weigh anchor. Oh, And if and when I figure out how to do cool videos with the drone and cameras it will be because I reached the point that I'll be doing it for fun and not as a means of funding my adventures.

    I do hand it to those that have patreons giving them money for their content. I just wouldn't feel right getting in that boat. Ok, I'll be honest, I suck at making videos. Haha.

    I 2nd what Nidhogg said. In all my years here I have never had someone roll up and go to my fridge. Honestly my wife would beat them down. Hell my wife hates opening the gate for people.

    You have a interesting situation based on your comments. It's funny when I think about it. I have been in Big C maybe 10 or so times in all my time here. Tesco probably less. There is nothing I need in them.

    I love the History stuff ........ The History of Issan doesn't score .

    I DID have two condos and you're absolutely right . They are not homes . They are just bedrooms .
    Biggest problem for me is this idea that if you marry then you marry the whole family . Who never leave .
    I HATE it when a Thai drives in on a moatybike , walks straight to the fridge and takes anything that takes their fancy !!!
    They do that .
    And all the local Thais like me heaps but they keep talking to me in Thai even when we've told them a thousand times that I don't speak Thai .

    This all sounds whiney but it's not .
    You're all helpful sounding boards and I appreciate it .

    I don't think Thailand is for you, you'd better stay in England.

    I binn thinking about that a lot .

    I was doing some work for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and I loved it but it came to a natural end . I was asked to take on an area and in particular one church . I knew the church . I've driven past it 2000 times . It has a tiny quaint churchyard with requisite spooky headstones at the front .
    What I hadn't realised was that there is a HUGE churchyard at the back .

    The Mission ( if I accepted it and I did ) was to search for personnel who died in military combat and are not recorded .
    You see - particularly in the Great War - there were many families who were so distraught at losing their son , brother , husband , father that they wanted nothing more to do with England or Army or the King . They wanted their loved one back and they did not want a Military burial .
    They buried them in their own family graves.
    My job was to find them , get the information and photograph the grave .

    It was believed there were 18 such people in this Churchyard . 9 of them had military headstones so I had to find the others .
    By the time I had finished I had found 53 !!!
    In this one Churchyard .

    When I wasn't doing that work I was definitely wasting a lot of time . Found I was watching ' Bargain Hunt ' at lunchtime - which has to be as useless as going to Homepro just to walk around like a sad old git . So it's a question I put to myself now . what do I do ANYWAY between 11 and 5 ?
    you sound like your age is between 11 and 5...

    you sound like you'd be more satisfied in a quaint English village too, eating wensleydale, and puffing on a cornet.

    You must have had a plan to move to Thailand - why did you? Do you remember?!

    I have the complete opposite problem from you - so many things I want free time to do, but it's consumed with shite I have to do that are a chew.

    Quote Originally Posted by Wasp View Post

    However - as some dudes answered anyway I'll go back to it .
    This trip to Thailand was meant to be the decider . Do I move here or not ?
    And I'm thinking not .
    Only because I find too much time is boring . I honestly don't know what I do to fill my days back in England .... but they do get filled .
    Here though --- I can get from waking to about 11am fine .
    Breakfast , Coffee , BBC news , Orange Juice , Toast , Mail Online , emails , Breitbart , Bacon n Eggzz ..... tidy up a bit .
    But from 11 to about 5 kills me.
    It's said that only boring people get bored...

    You'll know that there are an awful lot of highly motivated people who reach their retirement and either pass away quickly or in plenty of cases kill themselves .
    Being miserable . But it does happen .
    ...
    I sound depressed . I'm not . I'm trying to be realistic .
    Missy was with me in the UK and pointed at some elderly folks struggling along with their Tesco shopping bags and perusing the cheaper cuts of pork . With Wintry weather outside .

    You remind me of Thomas the Tank Engine


    You clearly need not simply a hobby, but a project, one that is by nature sociable and requires you to travel.
    You could, I suppose, expand your fetish for war history to the burma side of things and relocate to somewhere more interesting for you like Kanchanabury. There's no shortage of things for you to do, from wildlife photography and conservation to technical/craft projects, like those old boys steam engine clubs in the UK; or even something nw and challenging, which could be cheap like languages, programming, music, art, writing, cooking etc... it sounds like you don't know yourself... in all those years of teaching did you lead a Socratically unexamined life?

    By all means give me your PIN and I'll be happy to live an exciting life for you...

    Woke up, fell out of bed, Dragged a comb across my head . Found my way downstairs and drank a cup, looking up I noticed I was late. Found my coat and grabbed my hat. Made the bus in seconds flat, found my way upstairs and had a smoke, somebody spoke and I went into a dream.

    I have photos of Thai babes, but they are dated now and I stopped taken photos of women a long time ago.

    I don't live in LOS. Last time I was in BKK and Patters was 3 years ago.

    And I would never put any photos of women (or guy friends or anybody) on the internet.

    I think they are only after your beer? They sure are not going to steal old slices of farang pizza and as generally Thais don't do "left-overs" they are not looking for yesterdays somtam.

    Solution? Buy your own small beer fridge and put a padlock on it with a sign that says "wasp's private fridge ask if you want a beer" they won't ask! Put one or two small Changs in the main fridge and only replace them if you notice. Or buy a proper beer fridge with a glass door and use that as the main one, then put a lock on the old one? They will come look through the glass and see not much and go away?

    Then fess up at their house and look in their fridge?
