Mental Vacations…

Did everyone make it to their weekend in one piece?  I certainly hope you did and that you’re doing whatever you can do enjoy your weekend to the fullest.  I’m sitting here on a Saturday night, and I can hear the wind occasionally whistling and blowing through the big mango tree outside as I sit here and write to you.  I’m also occasionally looking up from the laptop to glance at the muted television in front of me.  Does anyone else out there leave the television on muted when they are home alone?  I sometimes do it for the illusion of  company it provides,and I’ve got it muted at the moment so I can concentrate better on talking to you.  I’m actually also waiting for my favorite Saturday night shows to come on, and the current bland reality show annoys me severely.  Anyways, enough about my peculiar personality traits, right?

Well, I’ve officially been on vacation for a week now, and my mind seems to have taken complete and full advantage of the opportunity.  It sort of feels like my body has been in auto-drive this past week going through the motions of daily obligations without much thought or feeling in my actions.  Anyway, I went to the dentist on Wednesday, and I’m proud to report that Tom is 100% cavity free. I actually have an almost phobic fear of dentists and the relief of having no cavities was tremendous.  The dentist and his 2 assistants did an excellent job of polishing and cleaning my teeth all for about 600 Baht, which is just under 20 bucks.   I doubt if the  dentist at home would even squirt you with  the  water tube for that much, right?

Then, speaking of back home, I made a trip down to the American Embassy on Friday.  I only had about 2 empty pages left in my passport, and so a trip down to the embassy to get some additional pages was in order.  I’m normally not a big fan of government interaction and their need for miles of red tape, but I must say that in this instance the U.S. government was quick and efficient.  I was able to print out and fill in the form online beforehand, and then on Friday I was in and out in under an hour.  Not only were the staff down there friendly and efficient, but the whole service was done free of charge.  They should pay me to do P.R. for them for this entry, huh?

However, one thing I always find interesting is the large number of Thai citizens that are always there lining up and making visa applications when I’ve visited the embassy.  They line up by the hundreds like you would see people lined up to enter a ride at Six Flags or Disney World.  All morning long for what I assume to be every day there are huge lines down at the American Embassy for a chance at the opportunity to cross the pacific to the country I call home for one reason or another.  This raised some difficult questions in my own mind, but I guess that’s the bad thing about long vacations or holidays in life.  You get to much time to think and critique the measure of your life when you are avoiding doing productive things with your time.  Well, I should go now and watch Family guy, so much love to you from Bangkok.  Thanks so very much for stopping by to have a read as always, and I will see ya soon.

T.I.T. Video Blog 3

I was to lazy to actually sit down and write a long post, so I thought I’d record a quick video blog to give you guys a little post birthday update. I talk about my exhausting week, ceremonies, and what I’m probably going to do with my upcoming free time next month. Anyways, have a watch and thanks for stopping by as always. I’ll write a post over the weekend so be sure to stop back through for a visit.
