See you soon

Maybe something I said.. maybe something somebody said to me.... maybe even
some song lyrics. Either way It's just some words that really meant something
to me (or that was funny and memorable) over the past few months while we've
been changing countries. It's been a busy and difficult time and I really wanted
to atleast document something about it.

In a reasonably cronological order (as memory serves):

*singing* "'cause I'm not a loser!! not a looooser! ... "
"OMG... We are really going to do this!"
"No Mum, I hope I do feel that way one day... Because then I'll know that I've rasied my son to follow his dreams no matter what!"
"Hunny... I just realised that we are now living out of the back of our car!"
*Walks out of the pub* "Have we forgotten anything ?.. o.. wait.. EVERYTHING WE OWN is in this car!"
"We've just upgraded to living out of my Mum and Dad's garage!"
"If you miss somebody, you have to let them go" -- Ruben
"OK... lets go and burn some memories"
"I knew atleast one of our bags would go missing!"
"No!!!! That's gross! I don't want a scorpion on a stick! :("
"These undies are NOT desinged for a westerners undercarriage!"
"No... we didn't come halfway across the world to go to McDonalds!"
"Now we are living in my brothers back bedroom!"
"Burger rings!!! nom nom nom"
Ruben: *Shouting* "I just did a great big poo!!!"
"Can you beleive we are actually here ???"
*!!!SMASH!!!* "Dude! you should just not come into people's new houses anymore OK !?"
"She reminds me of an asian version of your mum!"
"I am soooo happy"
"Living the dream"
"WTF is Yum Cha?!"
*thinking* "Yeah... I could live around here.. Oh.. wait.. I do !! yay!"
"Will I ever get tired of this view?"
"Lets go home!"

And the single sentence that started it all 8 months ago:
Ruben: "My heart feels like it's falling out"

Thanks to everyone who helped us out (even if it was just listening to me whining)
Thanks to everyone who came to get drunk with us before we left.
Thanks to all my nay sayers for giving me the strength to want to turn around and say "Screw you!"

Mike, thanks for putting up with us for so long (and for so much longer neigbourino!!)
Dan, thanks for buying all my crap and throwing it in the tip!! Come see us soon!

Dad. You are amazing! I couldn't have made my dream come true with out your support. You rock. I love you!
Mum. I know you hate me for leaving. I miss you so much it hurts! Please know that I am happy. I love you!
