Bravo turned down my idea for a reality show, so I’m stuck with this blog. What, Bravo, the idea of me sitting around on my couch and surfing the internet while eating copious amounts of potato chips isn’t exciting enough for you? I see how it is. I bet my friends and I would kill in the ratings. Talking politely about what books we’re going to read next and complimenting each other on how nice the other looks today? That’s gripping television. Your loss, Bravo!
Edit: We also sit at beach bars and talk about GRE words. That is a true story.
Edit 2: Plus, we have been known to sit at clubs and discuss the role women’s equality plays in an economy.
So, fine, I’ll start my own reality show. I live in Bangkok. Looking for adventure and challenges and finding them every day. Living in another country is hard, people! Daily smackdown challenges include: Not Sweating to Death, Not Being Run Over By a Moving Vehicle, Scavenging for Food, Understanding Thai TV, and Eating ALL the Chips!
If I’m not too lazy (that’s a big “if” there), I’m going to try to do one big smackdown challenge a week, chosen by myself or my crazy friends here. If you have any ideas for challenges, feel free to pass them on.
Special thanks to the idea for the smackdown from one of my favorite blogs, Thursday Night Smackdown. I only hope I can be as hilarious and awesome as she is. Not that I know her personally. But still.
