State of emergency in Thailand Possible coup!

We fell asleep around 7 pm. Got up around 10 pm...Ake was ready to go out and get some food, when SHIT the streets are empty. That's always odd on our street cause normally the street stays packed until midnight.

Opened the TV. All channels BLANK, some add saying 'we will resume trasmision later'...then we got a phone call from Ake's best buddy saying that tanks have surrounded the parliment (that's half of the army that supports the plot). Bad news for us! We live 10 min away from the parliment! RATS!

Just as I'm typing now tanks are rolling down our street.

TV still out, all Radio channels out, cell phones not working...hurray for the internet.

A minute ago PM's oponent (Who's this guy? No one knows about him...I mean not even the Thais) announced on TV they took over the parliment and Taksin's (that's the PM) house, propreties...This guys acts like the PM's a dictator..I mean is one thing to take over, another thing to take the guy's house while he's in NY.

GOOD NEWS! The school called...NO school tomorrow! Possibly until Friday!

...we'll keep you guys posted...

Not lazy, just really really sorry

1 - British weather in Bangkok. Heck , we haven't seen the sky for ages...a classic modern combination of polution and in Bangkok's case monsoon skies. I've counted 3 raining episodes just yesterday...absolutely pouring!

2 - Went to see MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND...I read on some good reviews and thought maybe the jokes in the movie are terrific or something. Don't go, guys! A total waste of time..yeah, sure few jokes here'n there, but not enough to make it interesting...Silly is the best word for it!

3 - I'm just about ready to enter my 7th...starting to waddle like a duck. Nowdays, I think twice before approaching a tight spot..he he he, not that I was ever so slim to disregard the lack of space....but in pretty good shape otherwise...

4 - Despite 'daddy's' fingers and toes crossed, WE'LL HAVE A BOY!!! Makes sense for me...I've been craving my all time favorite on cheese and tomatoes and lemon juice and banana shakes. Graparents prayers have been answered!

5 - Following tomorrow ... one of the 'funniest birth stories' ...well written...what can I say..I'm getting ready for the big PUSH!

Finishing the materninty class tomorrow with a tour of the baby ward...bless them...up to 10 newborns sleeping like sausages.
Other than that, once you're pregnant you're pretty much all together in the maternity


1. Everyone around you has an attitude problem.

2. You're adding chocolate chips to your cheese omlette.

3. The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans - and those are maternity jeans!

4. Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.

5. People stop asking 'how was your day?'

6. Your husband is number one on your speed dial. Only so you can add yet one more grocery item for him to pick up after work.

7. You cry at TV commercials featuring babies, mothers, fathers, animals.

8. Your moher in law has stopped calling when she knows you'll be home.

9. Department stores in your area know you by name - at least their complaints deapartment does.

10. You can't beleive Haagen Dazs only comes in pints.
