count the chins

having posted those pictures of my mum as a pirate, i feel obligated now to post this rather becoming picture of myself that bun took the other day...


and to inform you that if you DO make the venture into 'my thailand photos,' you can find many more such just by clicking on the scrolldown menu and selecting 'plett family,' because MAN are we photogenic. and hilarious.

oh yes, and please oh please someone tell me that this makes you laugh...or crack a smile, at least...

Definitely smiled, AND laughed. And a very photogenic family indeed. Nice work.

Ok, so every once and awhile I have to catch up on a brazillion *snicker* posts that you've posted and I end up sitting here for like, an hour laughing and pretending that the tears are from laughing and then leaving a great comment like this one which ends up being way longer than a comment should be, but since this is my comment and my sister, I can do what I like.
Why do we have so much when so many people have so little? It makes you recount all the things you have and all of a (the? bwa ha ha, where is joel to save himself) sudden their value changes. Par example: this half bowl of neglected granola that I'm not going to eat, but instead am going to feed to the toilet fishies. How many people would ration this soggy half-bowl for a day's worth of food for an overgrown family? How do we change this from a problem to a solution while at the same time not westernizing the entire world? Which brings me to another thing, we assume that "fixing" a population of people is to make them like us. How do we refrain from corrupting a humble society while aiding them? (the sappiness of this comment can be blamed partially on Jeff Buckley crooning "Hallelujah" in the background) My last answerless question is: are we meant to solve all these earthly problems even if it were possible?
Much love to my sister of one.
