title of a blog entry!!!

so, my general feeling here in thailand is that i am kind of dirty and gross. i don't wear make-up, don't fix my hair, and, while i shower several times daily, am usually in a full body sweat. that being said, my vacation on the island proved how much further down the scale it is possible to go. here i am on the speedboat to ko samet; still clean, still somewhat tidy, still riab roi, as the thai would say...

and here i am on the ferry back, my skin covered with a thin sheen of salt, my pants crusted with sand, my hair having taken complete leave of its senses...

that being duly noted, i greatly anticipate my pomades and exfoliaters and moisturizers and all the other do-daws that make a girl feel pretty.

in other news, ganniga and i have been taking turns with apilak today (please note: his name mysteriously acquired a 'k'). i'm new to babies, so am i right in assuming that new motherhood is invariably accompanied by sweat and dishevellment? apilak will be held, unless in the deepest of sleeps, and he prefers that you hold him while standing (HOW do they know that you've changed elevation?) and it would behoove you to walk around the room if you presume to pick him up, but look at what a tiny helpless orphan parcel he is...


and so it's really quite alright.

This has the potential of an episode from Survivor -- only -- on that location, they had like... millions?.. of people monitor any possible loss of their sense of propriety. You, my sweetie, still have the impeccable essence of decorum and aplomb.

The photos still could pass for part of a modelling portfolio.
