ok well this is the first of its kind here on neals blog. it seems i have gotten myself into a bit of hot water with hurt feelings and such from friends and family from my last post. after re-reading the damn thing i can see how it came out a bit more harsh then what i intended. the whole thing started out as a good humored little rant justifying why im skipping chicago this year. after a bit of typing, i suppose some pent up feelings escaped me and i let them flow because im usually all about full disclosure on the blog......makes it much more entertaining and insightful. i think i was writng more about my time in college when i was a 4 hour drive from home. i understand people have real lives and cant hop a plane to bangkok but i never could understand why people couldnt hop the car down to the college for a day or two......and yet i digress again....this was all meant to be light hearted and a playful thumbing of the nose. in the spirit of full disclosure i would like to thank the following people.....chad and adam for coming to visit me at SIU and getting stupid drunk with me. Amy Scott for visiting me in a maxium security prison and Gaberial for visiting me 3 years later....different prison, same sentence. also i would like to thank sari, my sister, for flying her ass out to thailand to hang with me for a glorious 10 days...and it only rained for one! if people took offence to my earlier post, please dont take anything too seriously and think upon this for too long because it was not meant with any malice.
