its f**ked isn't it, myself Ive only been doing it since my stroke.

 

I prolly should add my stroke to the list and the by products of it;

complete loss of appetite and anything I do force down my throat tastes  metallic.

sleep

drastic reduction in beer intake

weight loss (20kgs to date)

talk like iam drunk

complete loss of strength in right arm

cannot walk more than 50m at a time

etc etc.

I moved into my slum ( 1,000 baht a month) around 4 years ago through necessity as both my apartments in Naklua were being rented out but funds were low.

Now I can afford to buy something else and move out I have realised how much I love living here. I love my slum and I love being with the people that suround me.I love the feral cats that come in from time to time for a quick feed. Me and the cats have a mutually beneficial relationship, I feed them and they squirt the love juice out their arse ends which keeps the rats away..

 It seems all my life I have worked for a "better life" but what a load of bollocks that is.

Good for you, I'm sure it sounds bizzare to some but I can certainly relate to it.

 

Couple of years ago i was ready to start building a big fcuk off house on a large plot of land just outside of Pattaya.

I was back in the UK visiting my mum when she suddenly passed away, a blessing really as she was gone with demetia and had no quality of life.

Her passing put a lot of things into perspective for me. I realised that the only reason i was going to build a big house was to impress others, I didn't need it or actually want it.

Ended up buying a much more modest sized place which has turned out to be a much better family home as we spend more time together.

As has been said before, as I've got older i give less and less a toss about what people outside of my immediate family think of us and just do what we want when we want.

Some of you saw me and the Miss. Well this morning I decided,.feck it all, we stay home. We spend the day like 17 y teens playing around,.went out to buy some stuff, leaving our phones at home. 

We lived without them for years, so what the hell have they become important now ?

And no, not gonna say how many times I.did it today, but not too bad for a.pensioner......

They have become important because the human race has become less confident as individuals in their private and business lives. They are less able to "deal" with situations in almost all aspects of life. All that is missing is a phone to wipe yer ass with..

Is it a coincidence that Linus' security blanket in Snoopy cartoons could easily be redrawn as a mobile phone..???

Yeah that's me as well. I have become more intolerant of time wasters and have come to realize time is too precious to be spending much of it with those that bore me.

Since being diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes, I have become very self aware about health. Given up smoking eating shit and upped exercise by 1000%.

Still get tired though. Age is relentless!

I find I get socially excited much quicker than I used to (less beers before it happens) but like a muggins I mostly keep going as I enjoy a beer or twenty even though I know I should slow down and be a little healthier.
