well i havent written for awhile due mostly to being one busy mother during the holiday season.  the diving boats were booked full every day and i finally found myself in the middle of some steady work and some awesome diving.  the fact that i had to sleep on the boat for the 2 or 3 days at a stretch wasnt that bad really.  the food is good and im usually in bed by 10pm.  its hard to stay awake after 4 dives a day and then the first dive of the next day is at 7am.  The similan islands are absolutely beautiful for snorkeling and diving and if any of you end up out on this side of the world, i recommend a few days out here. on the relationship front i am still happily single.  ninny and i have talked occasionally over the phone but i have come to realize that i dont want to go back down that path again so its sort of a waste of time and emotion to keep rehashing things with her.  i DO have a "kik" (pronounced geek) which translates out to "friend with benefits", and she is coming down to khao lak for a few weeks pretty soon so that will be a nice change of pace considering land life here is pretty dull.

for those of you who were holding their breath and praying nightly, phish has indeed announced their summer tour and will be hitting the midwest for a number of shows.  as my cousin emailed to me a few weeks ago "if anything will bring you back to america, this is it".  I know most of you dont give much of a shit either way but I am pretty damn happy about this little development in my life and will be making a week long pilgrimage to see some shows in mid june.

my travel plans for indonesia are still a go and i will be departing on march 1st for a full month of running around bali and java and sulawasi.  i hope to get some diving in along with all the other sight seeing tourist things that are a must.  its funny how diving has invaded and nudged its way into my life.  its half hobby half job so it cant be entirely bad right?  anyway, i have included some photos from the similans so you guys can check them out.  remember....im getting paid for this lol

So that's why...
I haven't seen you on the chatty chat.

Anyway, where are you going to go see Phish? I was pondering a trip to the mid-west this summer on my motorcycle. What say you?
