Good to hear the island's healthy.
How about its inhabitants? Is Amaya still adventuring overseas?
Yes, I hope she wasn't affected by all that bad wetaher I heard that's been happening in China.
Yeah, it was terrible, I died in the typhoon...
Actually, people did really die just two hours (by car) south from us . We've had about four typhoons thus far that were said to hit our city, but none the less never actually eventuated (thank goodness).
To give you an idea, here's a linky
Sorry if it's been a tad silent on my end...47+ hour working weeks does that to you. All I seem to do these days is; get up, go to work, go home and go to bed. Wake up, repeat. I occasionally eat. Once a week I go out to a gathering of fellow foreigners to play poker. Sometimes I even remember to blink.
This is merely one of the reasons why I'm gonna quit. I'll probably just do some freelance business enblish teaching for companies.
Glad to see you in one piece.
Did you get my PM, Amaya?
Good to see you still surviving as well, Amaya.
Wow, how'd you get such pinpoint accuracy to your location in the typhoon?
One of the other foreign teachers sent me the pic. I dunno where he got it from. It's definitely the right place though.
Apparently we've got another one coming today or tomorrow.
Um, I haven't gotten any PMs recently, Katana - when did you send it? I haven't gotten one since March. Something must be funny in the system. Maybe the JC gremlins ate it.
I'll send it again, I sent one to Ender the same day with a similar request.
Hi everyone. Just had my 21st yesterday. I got the complete box set of The Black Adder for my birthday. I'm having a tea and drinks with the family and my mates on Friday at mum's work. She's put over a $200 bar tab.
Hope you can come on Friday katana. Marge is coming for drinks that night.
Happy 21st to you, Viceroy!!
Didn't you get my texts? i told you I wanted to come but had no way of getting back, I sent you two text messages!
Happy Birthday Viceroy. Hope you had a good day....and not too much of a headache the following morning
Thanks Azreal and Tyi-Maet_Nefer. Firday went well considering the poor service I recieved at Mum's work and the head chef was a real a***hole to her (She's resigning and thinking of taking him to court for the harassment) and one of my mate's ex-girlfriend acting like an up-herself brat like she is. Anyway had a good 21st as I got $600 all up from my Grandparents and my dad and step-mum (whom I only see twice a year as they show no interest in what I do) but it's money I can put toward the 'North Korea fund' for my trip and we watched the Kim Jong-il show on the computer in the quil and cane - pitty there was no sound, but my mates loved it. As you may have guessed I got drunk on three glasses of bubbly, one glass of rum and a whisky and coke. By the middle of the night I was like this: [image=http://www.bbcprograms.com/pbs/catalog/blackadder/images/XM03_Blackadder.jpg]
I was a bit sick but that was after I drunk to big glasses of lemon squash in a row. It was a bit like a Maggie and Judy vomit from Little Britain. If you want to watch the Kim Jong-il show click here!
Amaya; Katana; how much of a striking resemblance to Viceroy do you think that picture has?
Notice how he didn't reply to what I said?
And didn't you know after a night out you're supposed to have 2 litres of water before you go to bed?
I've still got your present, when's a good day we can meet? I'm working a lot at the moment though.
And as for the resemblance, give him a wig and an outfit like Mozart and I'll say maybe.
Here's your late present from me:
It's a giant pewter snorkel. I like to go for the practical presents.
As for the resembalance: it's uncanny! But our Viceroy's smarter than the prince.
I also have the full series of Black Adder (gotta love cheap pirated Chinese versions - except when the quality's bad of course). So you may be familiar with the line in my sig. Gotta love Queenie.
Viceroy, I have some friends who've worked in Korea (South, of course) and know about the teaching terms and conditions, so if you're interested, I can give you an idea of what it's like. I know you're really interested in North Korea, but the other teachers say that it's virtually impossible to get into the country .
It'd be like trying to get into the Imperial Palace in an X-wing.
Hear about Steve Irwin? Sad. The stingray was spooked and it stung hum in the heart.
Crocodiles, Snakes, International Media - and it was a Stingray that finally got him - who'd have guessed...
I'd be spooked too if I saw him swimming toward me. Still, poor bugger, MTFBWH
Ditto. MTFBWH always.
I'll third that.
"The Force Will Be With Him... Always."
According to my friend in England the headlines read:
"Crocodile Hunter killed by a fish".
Apparently most people over there have never heard of a Sting-ray.
It sounds much more dramatic than "fish".
Alots happened on the boards in the week I wasn't at uni. Steve Irwin and Peter Brock died within a week of each other. RIP the two Aussie legends!
it happens in 3. who's the third?
I hope it's not Russell Coight or Frank Woodley.
Frank Woodley's hilarious... on Thank God You're Here. That's the only show I've seen him on.
