    In a galaxy far, far away...

    [Further adventures in Farang-Thai r/ships]

    "Hun-nee?"

    "Hmmm" (not looking away from what I was doing)

    "What means this 'she-wok' word?"

    That got my attention.

    "I used googen, but it didnt find nothing for me in Thai."

    Now I actually started to laugh.

    "Why you laugh?"

    "It's something I made up... you wont find it on googen translate".

    "Oh"... thoughtful pause... I can see the gears turning..."so what does it mean?"

    "You ever hear of Star Wars?"

    She shakes her head 'no'.

    "Well, maybe we should watch Star Wars and then you can understand."

    And so began what has been a 4 night odyssey... you see, her tendency to fall asleep during any film that doesnt prominently feature an angry, vengeful ghost (OB1 doesnt count, apparently) means she can only make it through 1/2 a movie per night. So tonight she will finally be exposed to what an ewok is and why she reminds me of one. I've tried telling her "Well you're cute, small, lovable and you prattle on incomprehensibly at times and yet somehow I seem to get the gist of what you're on about..." but her blank look is simple confirmation she hasn't the first clue what I've just said.

    Oh well, coming up on 2 years together... maybe it's good to still have some things to learn. We might get bored otherwise...

    I've moved 3 times since those days and I'm moving again tomorrow, actually. Although I find moving slightly annoying, mostly because of the grunting, sweating and effort, this is a smart move as it'll cut my rent expense in half. Just no point at all to having a 2 bedroom for me and the she-wok.

    Anyway, yeah, busy with the move tomorrow then settling in... I'll reach out when I can get a spare moment.

    Where are you moving to?

    I quite liked your place and thought it was good value. Cutting rent in half further still is pretty significant

    *dreams of moving to CM*

    Just a few miles away. A small one bedroom place. Just no need at all for a 2nd bedroom, more so when I go back to work. So we're downsizing and cutting the rent bill in half.

    Also, we watched Return Of The Jedi this afternoon and she now finally realizes why I compare Thai girls to ewoks. Small, cute, chattering on constantly in a language you dont understand yet somehow you still kind of get what they're on about... and also, they attack in packs, I noticed.

    Anyway, after 3 Star Wars films in the last few days, my inner nerd had been more than nurtured.

    Yep. And of course we had 2 choices... right next to the construction on the one side, level 2... or completely away from it and a nice view, on the top level (4). So we took the one away from the noise... which means lugging stuff up 4 floors. We're pre-moving some stuff today, then tomorrow I have a pickup truck rented to haul our bed and the rest of the stuff over. I honestly figure it'll be a short move... we simply dont have a lot of stuff.

    That said, I'll still probably call ya mid-day, hahaa...

    ^After that clip, I've decided that TG's are she-woks, but henceforth in the future LB's shall be known as wookies. It's only makes sense.

    And it says an awful lot about Han's preferences...
