jesus christ is it hot.  i mean there is hot and then there is sitting in the arm pit of satan himself and that is pretty much where i am at right now.  I have moved from ko tao finally and am residing over in khao lak which is on the other side of the thai penninsula.  its not nearly as scenic here but the diving is by far much much better so i suppose its a trade off of sorts.  the move was a thorough pain in the ass though since I was bringing all my belongings with me.  I have managed to obtain quite the collection of crap over the years but im not usually saddled down with the weight when im travelling because I can just leave a bunch of it on ko tao, especially the diving gear.  This time though, everything was needed, included all my diving gears so i ended up with 3 very large and heavy bags and a camera case.....sigh. 

its funny, I am a huge political junkie, have been for a long time.  this year has been amazing to watch and listen to and see all the twists and turns and i was really looking forward to watching the election night results come in but instead i will be on a boat in the middle of the ocean for the next 4 days.  the dive company I am working for now runs what is called "live aboards" which means that you go much farther out and just stay on the boat for 3-4 days at a time....really its just eat, sleep, dive which is an AWESOME existance.  that being said, im a little bummed that im going to be missing history but there is not much i can do about it.  I hope all my american friends who are reading this have either voted early or are planning to go vote tomorrow.  for those of you who are not american.......well shit, no one is perfect right?  LOL LOL.

so here is hoping that the world has changed when my boat arrives back at the pier in 4 days.  that the days of bush and his cronies are over and that something resembling competent governance returns to washington.  on a side note though....while watching movies set in the future how will we know its the future?  the hollywood reasoning was if there was a black president then everyone would know its in the distant future......now what?

It's so difficult for me to imagine how hot you are right now, but in the armpit of satan is a very good visual. Nice one.
