American Idol comes to Thailand!

Needless to say, I was thrilled when I discovered a new TV channel this week... one that has shows like American Idol and Grey's Anatomy! Sam almost had me convinced that CNN and the History Channel were about the best available as I really hadn't taken any time to explore the channels for myself. I guess I'm not that much of a TV watcher. Anyway, his downfall was tuning into the History Channel during dinner last night. They were doing a show on the history of toilet paper. I couldn't believe it, but he was just sitting there watching them talk about wiping...taking it all in without giving much thought to the fact that we were eating. You know you're a History Channel junkie when you can watch something like that without thinking that it's a bit of an odd choice for the occasion! Well, that's when the search for another channel began and I'm glad to report my entertainment world has grown by leaps and bounds. Tonight we watched American Idol and plan on watching it again tomorrow. It was great... especially the performance of the song, "I'm Glad to be an American." I've always been touched by those lyrics, but even more so living outside of America. I truly am glad to be an American and am also very glad to have a new with American Idol :)

New Pictures on Shutterfly!

Now that I'm back in Bangkok, I have no excuse for not writing...well, with the exception of having over 3 months of catching up to do! Believe me, I'm working on it. For those of you who know me well, you know how I love to have all my ducks in a row. However, it's been kind of challenging lining the ducks up when I'm still trying to figure out where I am and if it's O.K. to drink the water! (I'm not kidding...I have to think before swallowing) Anyway, with setting priorities and all, I've decided it would be best to get the pictures downloaded and posted first. I hope you still remember how to click on the Shutterfly link to the left of my page :)
