a funny little story.....i got solicited to go through one of those 90 minute vacation presentations and for my trouble i get a free week in a pretty nice resort etc etc. so i go to the presentation (got nothin goin on anyway) and its for this vacation club. of course they made it sound really good and reasonable and if i had some money i may have been interested (after a little investigation of course). but the guy was pretty nice and we had a bunch of laughs and all during his spiel he keeps mentioning the one time membership fee......well i dont have money for shit but it sounded pretty good and i was starting to feel kinda bad for not having the 500-600 for the membership fee. of course this is what i thought it would be about because they save the prices until the very end. so after 2 hours of all this he comes with the numbers and the one time membership fee is only $11,000. i almost choked but kept a straight face so i could get my little one week holiday.....mission accomplished. 11,000 dollars!!!!!!!!! jesus christ
you know whats a bad idea? sitting down and contemplating where exactly your relationship with a beautiful thai girl is going. the problem that festered in my mind was that in reality, i cared waaaaaay too much for this girl. i mean dont get me wrong. yuy is a very nice girl and is a lot of fun to be around and when she smiles my little heart goes pitter patter but in reality, we dont really talk that much due to the language barrier and since we really dont talk then we really dont know each other etc etc. i sat down and examined all this and came to the conclussion that due to the nature of my life at the moment....solitary and a bit lonely....i have latched on to what has been presented to me and have attatched way to much meaning to what i actually have with yuy. what started these thoughts rolling you may ask? well i caught myself checking the u.s. embassy web page on obtaining visa's for girlfriends/fiances and realized that i had a problem lol. so after self analyzing my love life on a 30 hour bus trip from singapore (lots of thinking time) i came to the conclussion that i was going to have to talk to yuy and cool this thing off considerably. well before i underwent the arduous (sp!) task of trying to explain my train of thought in pigeon english, yuy informs me that her mother was not too keen on her coming to ko tao for months on end but i was more then willing to come live in her village with her mother and father.......a big shout out to yuy's mother for saving me the headache of the "talk" and for single handedly driving me away LOL. but shit she really is cute.
