zzzzzzz

Well, it's just gone 2.30 here, and bugger-all's going to happen now. If anybody's interested, the local English language papers are back online here and here.

Thanks for all your good wishes. Everything, so far at least, is fine.

I'm thinking of you, but it's a quiet, dignified consideration, with the occasional rueful nod. Best wishes.

FN, that's so sweet of you. But really, it's just an ordinary day. Put it this way, I'd rather be here than in Budapest.

I'll go for a walkabout a bit later, and report back.

My thoughts are with you Special Agent Tim. Keep us informed since the television news here is a load of shite.

Hello - I drop by here now and again and suddenly had a panic moment - hope you are ok. Be careful where you go won't you? I've got British friends who live in Bangkok and there has been a resounding silence....hope it doesn't get any worse. I imagine continuous patriotic songs on tv to be rather sinister after a while? Take care.

Thanks PI. See new post, coming soon.

Hi RM. Do you know where in BKK your friends live? Provided they stay away from crowds and sensitive buildings, they'll be fine. If you give me their details, I can give them a buzz for you.

The looped songs are slightly annoying, in a Pasquale way, so I listen to Radio 4 instead. If this had happened when I was on dial-up, it would have been unbearable.

Come on, you're going to have to pitch this up a bit if you want to get lots of coverage in the Guardian's blogging column. Something along the lines of "as night falls the skyline becomes alive with light and the ominous crackle of shellfire is heard in the distance" should do the trick.

Chin up, old chap. That's the British way ...
