Two Coincidences

1) Every time I cross a border, I thumb through my passport and admire the growing collection of stamps and visas. I was doing so yesteray when I noticed that exactly 1 year had passed between my first and second entries into Thailand: 07 Feb 2008 and 07 Feb 2009. Crazy, eh?

2) On a slightly different note, both my first (Singapore-Malaysia) and final (Laos-Thailand) border-crossing experiences were marred by Severe Gastro-Intestinal Distress. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, I'll just leave it at that. Unless I get 5 comments (all from different non-anonymous readers, no cheating!) begging to know all about my adventures in digestion.

If you have 5 or more people begging you NOT to disclose your digestive failures, will that keep you from saying anything more on the subject?

I would like to compare your gastrointestinal experiences with mine during and following my visit to Cairo.

Bob, there is an American guy here at my school who has lived in Taipei for 5 years and made lots of British and Aussie friends and who uses way too many dumb expressions like "mate" and "good on you." I am worried about you.

Anyway, that's 2 begs so far!

Please tell me all about your adventures in doo doo!

I'm all for poop stories!

How about uploading an Excel spreadsheet detailing the time, location, condition of restroom, ply of toilet paper, and cubic centimeters of each load? You may spare us the pictures--please.

thank god for full flush toilets said...

Counting Bob's comment (which I am, because I know he wants to know), that's five! Let's hear it!
