As long as nothing changes between now and then, I can look forward to finally getting back home to

Happy Friday, Covid survivor. Today is the first day of the rest of our self-isolation, which hopefully won’t last the rest of our lives. To distract you from the pub you can’t patronize, here’s the first half of the 2nd chapter of my self-published, barely-read, mediocre novel from the late 90s/early 2000s called “The Suburbs

Life in Thailand vs California: The Pros and Cons

‘Sup my dude, it’s me, Bangkok Seven. I’m currently trapped in Los Angeles due to the global travel shutdown. Which isn’t as bad as it sounds, since Bangkok has closed the gogo bars, so I couldn’t go-go even if I was there. Still, sitting around bored at home offers time for reflection, and these days

Happy quarantine, reader. I’m Bangkok Seven, and this is my blog. Though I’m not actually in Bangkok at the moment. I’m trapped in Los Angeles due to a global airline shutdown.
