Enjoys his life

Howwww romantic


I’m one blog behind so I will post from the weekend that just passed, let the anticipation rise a little bit then BAM second post later this week. I really haven’t been keeping up to date so from here for a few weeks I be posting more, even if they are less fun. More open and honest blogging, just like my personality. I’m an open book.

Left school on Friday, went to Khanom. About an hour bus ride away, or in beer terms, 2 beer and a podcast. They let (side note: I’m writing this while my “kids” are suppose to be swimming but 4 stayed behind, so give them Play-Do and tell them to make the letter J or the letter H and say big or small. So now every 18 seconds I hear “teacher” and they hold up there letter, was very cute but seriously cutting into my concentration. Onwards, as Rob would say) people drink anywhere here and I’m a fan of just casually having a beer or two. I like it. So the Friday night stayed at this place (insert picture)
(I wish. Rival blogger and sidekick stayed here, got to use the shower and all I can say is money does by happiness. Love showering.) I stayed here.

Untrue. Rival blogger stayed there Saturday night, I stayed here Friday night. Intended to sleep alone and go to bed early BUT a sneaky British chap named Nick from Nick & Nat smooth talked himself into my room. His bill is in the mail. Just a few of us at the start of the night and was really thinking about retreating to my room that has a blanket, don’t have one of those at home, but decided to be social and more people came and ended up going swimming. This is where things took a turn for greatness. I have never heard of this and have never experienced this but some of you probably have. I had never heard of phosphorescence.

Definition: phos·pho·res·cence
   [fos-fuh-res-uhns]  Show IPAnoun1.the property of being luminous at temperatures below incandescence, as from slow oxidation in the case of phosphorus or after exposure to light or other radiation
2.a luminous appearance resulting from this.
3.any luminous radiation emitted from a substance after the removal of the exciting agent.

Basically, when you go deeper into the water and you move your hand or leg, it glows. The more you move, the more little, tiny white/bluish spots you can see. People say it sort of like what you would see in Twilight when Edward is in the sun. Not that I would know anything about that. So that was extraordinary.

Next day, had a lovely little Thai breakfast with Nick from Nick & Nat. It was Thai food, friend chicken and rice. So great. Then went back to my room, wrote the now infamous “Prawn Song’. Teaching my kids about prawns this week and need a song so made up a song and started singing it to people. Sang it for group one, then was about to sing it to group two when Claire says “Is this the prawn song?’ Nobody forgets my singing, obviously inherited the skills of my Grammy nominated mother who has yet to win one but as we all know, Grammies are all politics.
Mother above. And very cute niece who I'm told resembles me when I was young. Bright future right there. Great, now I'm going to have to add the other ones.

Mikey’s birthday party Saturday night so we had partied on the beach, went back into the Twilight water, played a game that I have no idea what it is called. Just in teams of two, keep track of scoring like in tennis, just throw a Frisbee at the other team, if they catch it they whip it back at you, if you miss and should have been able to catch it, 15-Love and goes till however many games. Very exciting and it was dark so made it a little harder and more dangerous.

 Oh and played beach volleyball during the way which was some good exercise and a great battle took place. Saturday night played a game where I’d ask a question and people would answer then other people started asking questions. Love that game. I really love asking questions then praising people if their question is great. And maybe sometimes I might voice my opinion if I don’t like your question or answer, but mainly positive. Best questions were Best piece of advice you would give the world if you died tomorrow? Who do you admire? And person you most like in Nakhon but would like to get to know better.

Sunday saw PINK DOLPHINS. Didn’t even know this existed and would like to see them closer up. I imagine they look exactly like this

 Van ride home, almost didn’t make it. Took 2 motorbike taxis and had to eat my spaghetti in 3 different places but we ended up making it. Overall great weekend. Perfect weather, fun people and very laid back location. That is all for now, have yourselves a fun Monday morning and will post sometime this week.

P.S. Did you know that all polar bears are left handed and that ants never sleep? 

New section of Bert's blog: Someone I currently miss right now. Not in a sad way but just a general miss.
Right, right now. I miss my mom. The other day Kait from Stew & Kait brought in the book Love You Forever and I read it to my class and really reminded me of my mom. Especially the parts of her creeping in and watching me sleep, she's obsessed with me. I'm a terrific son. Anyway. I like my mom a lot and glad she is coming in October and love how nice she is to me and how supportive she is and how much she loves just being around me. I think everyone should have someone in their corner no matter what, they are behind you good or bad, and I think I have more than one but my mom is great and I miss her.

  1. You lost me as a subscriber until the part about your mom. Effffing tears. I just wanted to get that out, but the wireless keyboard is acting up. I can't express more without throwing this 'bluetooth-ready' PoS across the room...

    Miss ya!
