I've been thinking about killing the blog.
I'm not really traveling anymore, so is this a travel blog? I go places, but that's because my visa is always expiring. I could call it 'Ali's Visa Run Blog' but [bxA] who wants to read that?
Do you really want to know about my 12 hour ordeal on a bus to Burma sitting next to a hungover Russian prostitute crashed out cold with her mouth hanging open and one of her long lean legs slung across my side of the seat we were sharing?
Then there was Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last week and next will be Colombo, Sri Lanka.
But in between these trips inspired by my expiring visa, life is pretty ordinary.
Like today, for instance. I cleaned house with emphasis on removing gecko poop from hard to reach places. The tribe of geckos I live with are cute, quiet little roommates but they’re not potty trained (and they give me an inexplicable urge to buy car insurance?).
Beyonce – I am Sasha Fierce (2008 Sony BMG Music Entertainment)
It was a sunny day and I was listening to Beyonce because the shops in K.L. played “Halo” over and over again. I liked the song so I bought the CD on iTunes.
Ko Phi Phi, Thailand
That was my day. See how boring it was?
Malaysia – Sony Ericsson billboard in the Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC) monorail station.
Most of the time I think I’m ready to become an eccentric recluse. Sure, I’ve been postponing it as long as possible. But maybe ‘as long as possible’ ends now?
What do you think? Do I kill the blog?
