I received the following return e-mail when I donated online to the Red Cross to help the victims of the tsunami. I thought it contained important information for all to see and I hope it encourages those of us who are not there in person to give (and then continue to give even more).
I pray for all those affected by this terrible tragedy. I thank all those that have done what they can to help. And I urge those that have not yet helped, to please do whatever you can. No matter how small or
While he may not be the best President we have ever had, George Bush announced yesterday that the United States Government is initially committing 15 million dollars to the Southeast Asia tsunami relief efforts with more money to follow.
The United States Air Force currently has a convoy of large cargo planes filled with supplies and search and rescue planes on the way to Thailand. The United Stated Navy has a fleet of rescue and hospital ships on the way to the Indian Ocean as well.

Well, it must be that time of year again. At least twice a year my ex girlfriend sends me an e-mail ?just to say HI?. Here is what I would like to write back to her, but know that I never will:
Dear XXXXX (You don?t want to know her name, do you?),
Thank you for the nice message you sent me. Yes, I know it has been a while since we last talked and yes, I really should be better at keeping in touch with you. BTW, how is your husband and please remind me why you feel it necessary to send me
How he sees it:
I called you on the phone. You did not answer. I let it ring as I could not bring myself to hang up the phone. Disconnecting somehow meant that my hope was being cut off. I wanted?I needed to hear from you. At night, I look into the sky. I see a million stars but I am comforted in knowing that you too are somewhere under these same stars. I wonder if you look at them and think about me too. I miss you so much.
How she sees it:
My dear JERK ex-boyfriend, I wish you woul
I push my fingers into my eyes
It's the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it's made of all the things I have to take
Jesus it never ends, it works it's way inside
If the pain goes on...
I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I've waited as my time's elapsed
Now all I do is live with so much fate
I've wished for this, I've bitched at that
I've left behind this little fact
You cannot kill what you did not create
I've gotta say what I've gotta say
A few days ago I went over to a friend?s house. My friend is Chinese, but was born and raised in the USA, so he actually acts like more of a ?white boy? than me. And his wife is Chinese, born in Vietnam, but has been in the USA since she was 3 years old, so she is very much an American girl too. This couple had a baby boy and the child is now almost a year old. While I was at there house, we ate dinner (ordered a pizza) and we were just hanging out and talking. His wife sat there partially

you can pick your friends, but you can not choose your family. you are stuck with your relatives and are somehow linked to them through genetics. i have over 45 cousins because my father comes from a family of 16 children. i don't even know all my cousins, but i do know one in particular. more than likely, if i wasn't related to him, i would have nothing to do with him, but as he is family, i can't turn my back on him...well, actually i could, but what the hell, sometimes i feel sorry for hi
I didn?t write this?I just read it on the internet?so it must be TRUE then, huh? Hahaha.
Most men have been there. Many won?t admit they?ve been there: involved with a high-maintenance date or girlfriend. You can run from a high-maintenance woman and you can hide, but your best chance of going unharmed is to avoid her all together.

GOOD MORNING BANGKOK!!! Actually it is night time here and I have nothing to say, but I wanted to tell you that I just ate the biggest, fattest burrito I have ever seen in my life (BURP...sorry). I love MEXICAN food.
Okay, who wants to pinch my love handles now?
...and i don't have an ear ring. i was asked three times this week if i was married. at first, i thought it was a dumb question. second, i thought it a coincidence. and the third, i finally asked...why am i being asked this. i was told it was because of the ring i was wearing in one of my pics (since deleted to avoid confusion). i thought the person was crazy...so i went and looked...and sure enough, it appeared that i had a ring on. Now I'm thinking, what the heck? I don't wear a ring..
You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye

There?s a show here in the US called ?Blind Date?. The premise of the show is that contestants fill out questionnaires about the type of person they?d like to date and then the show?s producers match people up for a blind date. The camera?s follow them along so we, the audience, get to watch how things work (or in more cases not work) out.
Yes, I know that it is trashy TV, but nothing else was on?and sometimes they have really good-looking girls going out on the dates?not th

I?m back?did anybody miss me? Okay, okay, you don?t have to answer that?that way when nobody answers, I can at least pretend that somebody missed me?ha, ha, ha.
Aruba was wonderful. The Caribbean Sea was beautiful?now I must travel to Thailand to see if those beaches are just as beautiful (I?m sure they are). I had a lot of fun. I swam, snorkeled, rode a horse in the surf, but mostly just relaxed on the beach. The people there are very nice?a lot of beautiful women from South America (Braz
Dear Friends at TF?
Due to an unanticipated remote assignment at my work, I will be without internet access for at least the next two weeks. Therefore I will not be in touch via e-mail or active here on TF during that time. I just wanted to let everyone know so that you don?t think me rude if I don?t respond to your messages for a little while and I don?t want anybody thinking that I?ve left TF for good?I?ll be back...and I?ll miss you guys (well, some of you anyways?HA, HA, HA).
Wanna hear a meaningless story? No?well, I?m gonna tell ya anyway.
The mailman delivers to my house every afternoon while I?m at work, so the first thing I do when I pull my car into the driveway is check the mailbox. Usually it is just advertisements, bills and junk mail. Occasionally I get an invitation to an event or a card from my Grandmother.
I always shut the little door on the mailbox tight and the mailman always just slaps the mail in and flips the little door up and drives off. In
Something my illustrious and respected comrade, Slurms, said recently made me think. (Okay, okay, I know what you?re saying...?Geez, if Slurms can make us think, the world must be coming to an end.?) But before we are cast off into the outer depths of the cold, dark universe, let me first examine his quotation. To be exact, Sir Slurms said, ?white knights thinking you saving all the poor girls?. If you are not aware, he was referring to the attitude of some farang (sometimes middle-aged, but

Last evening, I?m going through my nightly routine?the dogs had been fed, I had eaten, I watched a little TV (President Bush?s speech to the nation?I was hoping to see American Idol)?and then I went to get my clothes ready for the next day before I get ready for bed. I laid out my work clothes (suit and tie as I had a meeting) and then I start to get my bag ready for the gym after work. And then I realize that

THIS IS A SPECIAL ALERT: Mothers and fathers of the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area keep your daughters ages 18 and up behind locked doors on Friday, April 2, 2004. Under no circumstances should you let them out of the house after dark. As a matter of fact, husbands don?t let your wives out either. Why the need for this special announcement, you ask?

To the ladies of ThailandFriends (and Ling...he, he, he), here's your chance to give me a makeover. I need to get a haircut. Having wavy/curly hair, it doesn't get long, as in the nice long, silky strands, but gets rather bushy looking. So you tell me, what should I do...
...let it go (and grow) and become really shaggy (I don't think my boss would appreciate that)
...cut it "high and tight" like a military man
...or (and I've honestly been thinking of this for summer) shave it completely
