    For a sec I thought you had finally lost it and were moving back.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Yes, the title was a scary one.

    I'm locked in until at least November. Eventually I'll have to start working again.

    1. You pass out in the corner of a bar but no-one tries to rob you because they all know you are broke,
    2. Your regular girl sends you up country when her sponsor comes to town.
    3. You start naming the geckos in your house.
    4. Hearing the word "farang" makes you look around for a tourist.
    5. You win a major prize in a local lottery.

    Enjoy...
    Life is the unexpected ...

    Bea could serve me klong water and I probably wouldn't notice. This little Akka girl does well what she does... and she is always busy.

    I was waiting for the rebuttal myself. Thanks for link. I admit I did have to shake my head at a few of the points as being on the frivolous side. Just goes to show that amateur content writing (for travel sites or personal blogs for ad dollars) is hit and miss (although in this case if it's trending it's likely making money even if it is fluff, 555). The BM's on Thai Dreaming could certainly come up with a better list.

    I fall victim to the cleaning the spoon and fork with tissue paper for myself and guests, drinking beer in a glass with ice, arranging my baht with the face side up and colour coordinated, and lots of other little things as well.

    You know youve been in Thailand too long when your girl friend leans across the table at a restaurant and picks your nose for you - and you dont even notice till later on ...

    Too true, had a girl try too get at the eye gunk the other day at the bar... damn nails almost blinded me... probably not a good idea to let a drunk girl get that close to your face, 555

    I also get the Thai girl affection slap/push a lot, too (when I'm been especially cheeky, 555)

    ^^ But these are not signs you have been there too long, only that you are just getting comfortable!

    You have been there too long when you really miss the Canadian winter (Smiley), or you feel bad because you ran out of Vegemite (Chob) and the next friend to take some over is not due for 3 months! 555

    I don't miss the Canadian winter, but it will nice to breath some clean, cool air for a change. It is smokey as hell here in Chiang Mai right now and my eyes burn everytime I ride more than a few kilometers.
