oh man how time flies and things get out of hand when you arent looking.  i have finally gotten off of the boat for an extended break.  11 days to decompress and get married.  you know what the funny thing about this whole marriage thing is?  between all of the work and running around trying to get things organized, i havent had time to sit and contemplate the whole life long commitment thing.  i suppose that this is a pretty good deal since i dont have time to freak out and take off for the hills.  i'm locked in baby.

the plans are pretty much finalized which is a good thing since the wedding is 5 days away.  found a cake place that actually has buttercream frosting here in thailand which is a minor miracle.  dress is very nice. the suit looks good and the bride....well she is pretty hot if i do say so myself lol.  i think that the way that IM and I have gone about this whole thing would drive the normal couple fucking into a psyche ward, you know with the last minute sort of just drive around until you come across something that strikes your fancey but it has worked out pretty good for us thus far.  now all we need is some nice sunny weather and things will be quite grooooovy.

its been a real struggle trying to get IM's mom down here since she has never really left the village.  this is going to be quite the life time event if i can dislodge her ass from the rice paddies.  it seems that there is not as much emphasis put on the whole wedding thing here. seems like a very optional event to me.  like if you have plans to go see a movie with your boyfriend then you can be excused from a wedding.....thailand is odd since they put such an emphasis on family here but the double sided nature is definitely par for the course here in the land of smiles.

it feels good to be off of the boat for a bit and be able to relax and just hang out for few days.  living on the boat is a great job but it does wear on you after awhile.  i just did 11 trips in a row.....havent had a day off since valentines day.....so my nerves were definitely shot.  i went nuclear on a customer today but she sincerely deserved it to say the least but would i usually just shrug off the situation? not sure.

the photos will definitely be uploaded as soon as i have time so all of you will be able to enjoy the joyous event. just show me a little patience since my free time is still quite limited. oh man what i wouldnt do for a month vacation. i dont ask for much.....just some time to catch my breath and catch up on life. at this rate i'm going to look up and i'll be 56 years old. sooner or later i will enjoy this life of mine. still its better then being chained to a desk so i cant complain too much i suppose.

ok...i should have time to write more later and post a bunch of wedding photos but at the moment i am going to post some diving photos from this year. show you some of the cool stuff that i have been hunting down  and showing my customers.......
