    It's not your fault you're annoying!

    Guru, Sumati Sivasiamphai, Published on 04/01/2013

    » My New Year's resolution was to be less angry all the time and to not let little annoyances get to me. As it turns out, no one else in Bangkok seemed inclined to make a resolution to stop doing things that piss me off, so here I am again, overworking my middle finger and spending all my time planning how I'm going to exact revenge on the co-worker that keeps commenting on my weight (probably by rigging the printer so there's a paper jam every time she needs to use it, muahaha).


    Where did the wild things go?

    Brunch, Published on 07/10/2012

    » Every Sunday during my salad days in Songkhla I would march out onto the sands of Samila beach with the mighty Boontongs Bombers _ the Volleyball Team for Gentlemen _ whose blue shirts were emblazoned with our motto from Cicero: Otium Cum Dignitate which, if you remember your Latin, means Leisure with Dignity. We played the screaming hellions of Songkhla Nursing College, the tough Taiwanese construction chiefs of the new Songkhla Port, the Charming Hostesses of the Smile Bar, but our most common foes were the loathsome troglodytes of Songkhla's Hash House Harriers. Thus every Sunday was a battle of Good against Evil.

    The lame blame game

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 06/07/2012

    » We all have done something in the past we have not wanted to admit to, and then tried to come up with an excuse to avoid the blame. You might have said the dog ate your homework instead of admitting laziness to your teacher. Or maybe you told your parents the cigarette pack belonged to your friend, which was technically true since you both chipped in money to buy it. Or perhaps you blamed being late to work on a taxi driver taking you on a detour when you were actually up until 4am partying.
