Who is Stranger?

Who is stranger? MJ or all these people/fans who are morning his passing or celebrating his life or can't get over his passing. I see all these interviews on the major morning shows on major tv stations in the US of everyday people. Don't get me wrong he was extremely talented and changed music forever.

Waisting Away

I put on my shorts today and noticed they were loose. Then I put on some jeans that I bought 2 weeks ago and they were a little tight when I bought them. Now they are very loose. I need to wear a belt with them. Crap, I can't afford to lose any more weight. I was already very skinny before I lost this weight. My secret...no snacks between meals and eat lots of pasta. Some exercise, but always busy. FYI: I just wanted to let those who aren't native English speakers know I used the wrong

very sad today - here is to my friend Jane

Today I got into work and found out my friend Jane who usually arrives about 2 hours before the majority of people was fired (sacked). She had already gone home when I arrived. I am very upset about this. She is such a nice lady. I am mad at how the company did this....especially since we have a few open positions in another area that she was qualified for. She was off on vacation (holiday) last week and this is what she returned to. She was a low level employee, but did her job well. It

UK bans drinking games

As reported by AP.   Maybe this is good for Thai tourism.  Maybe TAT will take this and run with it.  LONDON - Bar-going Britons may soon be bidding goodbye to their country’s all-you-can-drink deals, as well as some of their more outlandish drinking games. The government said yesterday that it was banning irresponsible promotions and boozy contests such as the “dentist’s chair’’ - where alcohol is poured directly into customers’ mouths - in an effort to tackle Britain’s binge-drinking problem

True Story

Woman drives her car to the iParty store.  She get out of her car and carries her baby into the store with her.  She begins shopping and then the baby is hungry so what does she do?  She sits down in the aisle and whips out her left breast and starts to feed the kid in the middle of the aisle.  The store manager comes over to her and says she can't do that here.  Now this is all over the news here and iParty corporate headquarters is supporting the shopper and will include how to handle such a s

Today's English Lesson

So many times I read postings from or speak to Thais or Chinese from the PRC and they have problem with the word fish.  So here is the lesson.99.999% of the time the word to use is fish, not fishes.  If you use the word fishes it sounds like you are either not educated or are a young child who hasn't learned this yet.  Here are some examples for you to see the use of the word fish in context.You have one fish.You have five fish.There are many fish in the sea. I see a school of fish.Enjoy your

The Greatest

Saturday I watched the greatest American football game ever.....a classic between two titans, the #1 ranked USC trojans and the #9 ranked University of Notre Dame. What a fight. Neither team could throw the knockout punch....up 7 points, tie, down 3 points. Hope you didn't miss it. With 2 minutes left ND scored a touch down. USC takes over the ball on the 20 yard line. Nothing doing on first down. On second down a ND linebacker makes it through the line untouched and sacks USC's heisman trouph

Thai Silk

I am looking to buy Thai Silk as a runner down the center of my formal dining room table and maybe some other silk things.  Does anyone know of any good places in BKK that sell good quality silk at a fair price?

TF Amnesty Week

Maybe it is time for TF to offer amnesty to all its banned members 18yrs old or older. Any opinions? Maybe a TF2 where all the old members can slug it out. Maybe the members should update the rules for getting banned rather than have the rules dictated.

Some more language problems

I must appologise in advance for all the sex in these. I also hope all you can take this in fun and understand that in no way do I condone making fun of people trying to learn English in addition to their native language. You should hear my Thai and Mandarin. Again please feel free to add your own. 1. Another classic example of "farang beware" is the dessert "kluay buat chee" (falling tone/low tone/mid tone) which approximately means "the ordained nun's bananas", and consists of bananas in

Sexting

Do you know what it is? Is the media elsewhere as transfixed on it as they are in the eastern US? Have you sent one? Have you received one? Do you know it is illegal here and could ruin a jr high or highschooler's life?

Rude IM Behavior

Other than people asking you to show your body parts via web cam list some rude IM behavior you have encountered? My favorite is I am talking with Asians (they also live in Asia) I know in the real world and next thing I know they change there status to "Away" or "Busy". No notice or anything and I am sitting there like an A-hole waiting for them to come back. Many times they never come back. Is this just an Asian thing or is it universal?

Quality Problems in Chinese Factories

I though many of you would like to read this. I saw a similar, but different article in FT on July 28th entitled "A cautionary tale from China". http://www.forbes.com/2009/08/14/china-imports-private-equity-opinions-beijing-dispatch.html

Psyco Chick

I just got back from a meeting with a psyco chick in my condo.  I am a trustee here and this woman is suing the association because her heat bill was to high.  We charge half the oil bill to units based upon meter readings tied to thermostats and half the oil bill gets divided amongst the units because the halls have to be heated and all units benefit from this heat.  There is no meter on the hall heat so the 50% is just a guess.  The woman thinks 100% of the bill should be allocated amongst the

Police State

Here is a copy/paste from yahoo.  When will the US stop stomping on individual rights?  Where is the limit?  When will they start arresting people because of their thoughts?This guy did absolutely nothing against law.  They arrested him because a gun dealer said he had seemed overly anxious to get a shipment of semiautomatic weapons and because they found a note in his car that he didn't post or give to anyone.    Ill. student accused of terrorist threat  EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - A university studen

I remember reading recently that Thai phone numbers are going to change. Something like add a digit. What is the change and when does it take effect?

Obama - I told you so

Here is one tax cut idea Obama is floating. Like I knew was going to be the case, I will not be eligible. What a surprise. But in talking about his economic recovery package, Obama has mentioned his campaign promise to offer a "net tax cut" for "95% of American workers." One option that could get Obama a good way toward that 95% is his proposed Making Work Pay credit -- a centerpiece promise in his campaign. The credit would essentially work as a payroll tax credit equal to $500 for individu

New TF Feature? - Horrible

I don't know if this is a new TF feature or something I downloaded by mistake, but I now have all sorts of tools at the bottom of my screen....Translate, Recent posts, photos, facebook, twitter, join chat.......I hate it.  Takes up far to much real estate on my small screen.  Yes, I know I can collapse it. What do you think.

New TF Bug?

When I click "News & Info" and choose "Headlines in Thailand" the page loads, but I don't see any headlines.  Anyone else have this problem? Maybe it is caused by the same bug that causes a pop-up at the bottom of my screen.
