Welcome to Sunday Summary. This is a meme in which I attempt to summarize the week that came before. It replaces previous series such as Sunday Salon, Daily Phuket and Phuket Weekly. Following a long period of relative inactivity, I find myself wanting to write more and more. While I maintained a private journal during … Continue reading Sunday Summary #1
Daily Phuket #52: 17 May 2021 – Blurry Tops
Has it really been a week since I have endeavored to recount the minutiae of my extremely boring pandemic-period life? Well, I cannot think of a single thing really worth documenting as it is pretty much the same all day long, each and every day. Perhaps the only major change is that I have not … Continue reading Daily Phuket #52: 17 May 2021 – Blurry Tops
New Year’s Resolutions for 2014
In 2013, I didn't make any New Year's resolutions at all and that worked out fairly well. You keep them when they aren't there to begin with! But with the dawning of 2014, the Year of the Horse, I find myself with a number of things I would like to improve upon in my life. … Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions for 2014
No, I haven't forgotten about Asian Meanderings. I simply have been extremely busy lately. The number of my regular lessons each week at ECC has increased and I have also been doing a lot of fill-ins for ill and traveling teachers. Last night, I began teaching a series of thrice-weekly English Conversation lessons at Insight … Continue reading Extremely Busy

2012: The Year That Was Here we are. Another year is almost at an end. Auld lang syne and all that. For many reasons, 2012 was quite a good year for me although I didn’t seem to do much. Perhaps less really is more. Both my writing and my reading took a significant dip. The … Continue reading Looking Back / Looking Forward (1)
I think it’s about time to try and resurrect this blog. It has, after all, lain dormant for eight months now. I believe that’s the longest I’ve gone without a blog since starting my first nearly ten years ago! I haven’t taken a completely online-free break in those eight months. I’ve become much more active … Continue reading Resurrection Time?
Stats Summary for July 2011
>Another month, another set of accumulated statistics. I definitely read a lot more in July than in the previous couple of months and I also found time to watch a few movies. Now that I have a somewhat intermittent wireless connection in my home I haven't been using an internet cafe but have been downloading … Continue reading Stats Summary for July 2011
Yet Another Blog!
A week ago, my self-hosted blog -- Phuket Bookworm -- was hacked (along with several of my other online accounts). The databases are gone and I no longer have access. This came just as I had finished a site redesign and had begin reprinting a number of older articles discovered in a long-lost backup. I'd … Continue reading Yet Another Blog!
