I bet you didn’t know

I bet you didn’t know that many Indonesians believe smoking can cure….not cause….cancer, autism, and acne among other things and that there are entire medical practices devoted to “doctors” blowing smoke into your ears and nose.  Sign me up.

Return to Munchkinland

When I pulled up on my moped, I saw no munchkin heads peaking over the fence, heard no yelling…and where is the cat? As it turned out, the munchkins had social workers visiting to put on a meditation workshop.  My initial thought was it may be working because it was unusually quiet.  But, by theContinue reading “Return to Munchkinland”

But as we finished lunch, one Minion started to change her tune a little.   Bible: Teacha I think you cannot go Bangkok. TeachaContinue reading “Zayn Said Whaaaaa?”

Minions Meet Munchkins

While Munchkins wander about at their leisure eating candy and looking huggable, Minions help carry out plans for world domination. This week the Minions met the Munchkins and it was a match made in Happy Buddha Land. It all started with makeup. I couldn’t get any takers to model my wares for the shop, soContinue reading “Minions Meet Munchkins”
