Home!  
Hi everyone! I'm back from Thailand. Yup, got out just one day before the State of Emergency was declared in Bangkok. Kind of flabbergasted that it happened as we saw so little sign of trouble on our travels--but civil unrest can be so localised I guess.

Anyway, feel wonderfully rested and had a fabulous time. I'll post some photos when I've had a chance to sort through them. Two weeks of LJ news to catch up on... so I'd rather ask directly: how are you? what's been happening?

Welcome home, Boppy! I'm glad you had such a good time. :)

I am goooooood! A little under the weather, but good.

Hellooo! I love Thailand so much! \o/ Bit sad to not be able to visit my favourite fruit shake and spring roll vendor today. :((

Glad to hear you are well! Any interesting fannish news?

I am glad you're home safely!

we saw so little sign of trouble on our travels--but civil unrest can be so localised

If it puts your mind at ease... when I was growing up in [SE Asian country], we would routinely find out about coups and national crises from relatives abroad, who had seen the news on *their* TVs before we'd ever even heard about it. Even though we lived in the same city as the unrest, it rarely affected our daily lives. Not sure if that was particularly good, but... all that to say, you were probably always far from trouble! *hugs*

*nods* It was very much like that. We heard far more about it the minute we were home, and of course it sounds so much worse in the news here. I just heard from some people we were travelling with and apparently if they hadn't read the news they would have had no idea it was happening, so it's just as you describe.

I'm glad because I love Thailand and would have no qualms travelling there again.

And are you and the little ones well?

Oh we saw soooo many amazing sunsets! You would have loved them. *nods* Also one sunrise but it was not so good as the sets.

That video is awesome! Love it--thank you! *G*

And how are you?! :D

Hey Bop! Glad you made it back A-OK and that you had such a wonderful time!!

What has been going on in my neck of the LJ: Um, lots of smutty fic writing...crazy coworker business...oh and wait till you see the season finale of TSCC!! HOLY CRAP!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on April 13th, 2009 04:16 am (UTC)
Hello!! Smutty fic?! Hee hee. I'll have to check that out... coworker business sounds less fun? And yes, I'm on a download mission with TSCC right now. Have three eps to get so it could be quite slow, alas. Luckily my holiday zen is lasting quite well.

Thank you! How are you? Thailand was distracting, as I expected it to be, and I feel very lucky to have had that space and time, but some part of me is still doing a lot of difficult emotional processing.

You're back! I've been thinking of you for the last few days because of the news.

Apart from my job going from bad to hellish, my two week vacation being reduced to 2 days off and a few other RL things going wrong, not much has happened and I'm doing just fine. :)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Blair yelloqbop_radar on April 14th, 2009 08:58 am (UTC)
Oh nooooo--that does not sound fun at all. :( But you're doing fine? That's good.

Welcome back Boppy! I missed you!

In TV news, "Party Down" is the best new show on TV and you should watch it, and "Dollhouse" got totally awesome. In life news, Charlie learned to use the cat flap. :D

Hee! Yes, I'll think again about panicking when someone I know is travelling in a troubled country. We really would have had no idea anything was going on (the redshirts we saw were very snoozy) and unless you have the bad fortune to be in the exact spot at the exact time, it's quite surreal. Though it sounds like you had a close call with the market in Egypt!

Have seen. Experiencing some dizziness from watching three dramatic eps in a row...

Welcome back, K! Thailand sounds glorious. *still jealous* Things are good around here: I posted a new Psych vid, got purchased at auction to make a Clark vid, and just started clipping a Fast & Furious vid that's gonna be set to a Britney Spears song. You know, the usual. :)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: TW smilebop_radar on April 14th, 2009 07:59 am (UTC)
Ohh, new vid yay! And the others sound exciting! F&F would be very fun to play with! Whee.

Yay, you're back! I was wondering how your trip had gone. So glad to hear that you had a great time and that you made it home safe and sound.

I...have been an absolute slacker in terms of posting since the BSG finale and only last night posted a bunch of recs. So I'll definitely need to step up my game in LJ world. In RL, things have been pretty same old, same old for me. :)

When do you start your new editing project, and are you looking forward to that?
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!bop_radar on April 17th, 2009 12:28 am (UTC)
I was a bit deflated when I heard my first project had been delayed a couple of weeks, but as it happens my old workplace has given me plenty to tide me over. :) So now I'm excitedly clocking up the freelance hours! Still looking forward to my first 'real' job though, as this is really just minding projects for other people...

I need to catch up with BSG fandom and see how things have been since the finale, but it's all a bit daunting, to be honest! Two weeks away from LJ is an eternity...

It's good to see you back home safely :)

As for me... the diet has been a dismal failure, but the exercise continues to go well. I continue, much as usual ;)
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kittenbop_radar on April 17th, 2009 12:31 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm dying to catch up with you. So much newses! Are you around on weekend?

Exercise yay! See this is why one should not always listen to parents... :p
