I have known for a while what I am doing for Chistmas break but I could not mention it on here because it was a surprise for someone until the other day when she found out about it.
Karie and Reid and I are going to Thailand for Christmas! Why, because nothing says "lets worship the birth of our savior" like, women in bikinis, liquor, and sunny SouthEast Asian beaches. It really is the yuletide gift that keeps on giving. While Karie may not be looking forward to the first reason for going on the trip, and Reid is not allowed to say he is, I will happily vouch that women in bikinis is a very good reason to go to Thailand for Christmas. It will be kind of like Clark Griswald's daydream while he is trapped in the attic in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
I also heard that a teaching position opened up when they extradited John Mark Karr back to the States and figured I would check up on that. :) Okay, bad joke but I had to.
Not a lot of details about the trip yet, hopefully within the next few weeks we will have some of those hammered out. I am looking forward to it though, it should be fun and it will definitely be a new place to explore. The big question is: Does Santa come to third world countries like Thailand? I would guess that he does due to the fact that there are lots of kids there and most of them are probably pretty well-behaved since they don't get a lot of time to goof off being in a sweatshop and all. I guess I shall see. :)
