Poolside + Alone: AMA

@Wordforword83 has gone to investigate if the wildlife parks are PETA friendly and I wasn't feeling it, so I'm poolside.. AMA. (Also, Steph is now back on li.st so follow her, she's the real deal)
  1. What pool are you going to sneak into today??
    Suggested by   @LeahG
  2. Ahhh, my smooth criminal ways are but a spontaneous act of deviancy @LeahG. Too soon to tell!
  3. How deep is the pool?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  4. 1.4 meters @andersun. I'm 1.7m tall, so that's about up to my collarbone.
  5. Is the water chlorinated or treated in some way?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  6. Chlorinated. And I hope like fuck it's extra chlorinated bc there was a situation at the pool the other day. Some dude cut his foot in the pool. #crimescene
  7. How do the beaches there compare to your favorite beaches back home?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  8. They don't! Sorry. I'm a total wanker when it comes to beaches. The water here is warmer than home, the quality of water and sand is really inconsistent. It's tropical so it def has that 'vibe'. The best beaches are on the neighboring islands :)
  9. Do you have snacks and if so what are they???
    Suggested by   @aliciamcelhaney
  10. YES @aliciamcelhaney! We quickly made friends with the bar manager. He brings us fruit and popcorn on the reg. Today I got watermelon 🍉
  11. What's the ocean water temperature like there?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  12. Warm! Like a tepid bath. Personally a little too warm for me. I like a little bit of a refreshing from the heat.
  13. What is your pick for lottery numbers tonight?
    Suggested by   @jpbateson
  14. 12, 23, 6, 11, 28 / 18 22
  15. When you say you snuck into a posh hotel to swim, did it happen in some sort of clandestine way? Or did you just walk in the front door?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  16. I'd say it was semi-clandestine. We snuck in via the beach access point. Some 5 star resorts have key access on their lifts so we took the stair well like real criminals.
    Steph had a sandal situation that nearly blew our cover!! Hilarious!
  17. Is it the heat, or the humidity?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  18. Humid heat @andersun
    You actually cannot trust the weather reports here.
  19. What is your pick for the lottery numbers six months from now?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  20. How many numbers do they draw in the US @andersun? Five and two supps?
  21. Are there any signs of Santa Claus about?
    Is he wearing shorts and flip-flops?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  22. It's predominantly Buddhist over here, so no. No Santa. Some attempts to Westernize but I've not really looked.
    @andersun (Santa wears thongs in Australia though, and board shorts!)
  23. How far is it from there to Perth?
    Measured in airplane flight hours?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  24. Approx 5 hours direct. My total travel time was 9 hours this trip.
  25. Will you be drinking any alcohol while you are there?
    Suggested by   @Cheezit1970
  26. Oh @Cheezit1970, you need to check my other lists! Have already, will continue to! Do you want to pick out my first alcoholic beverage today?!
  27. As a psychology student, which creature would be more interesting to study, and why: vampire, troll, or mime?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  28. Mime? A creature? Ok, my rational: Vampire as a bio-cognitive study. Troll for a behavioural study. Mime as a linguistic-emotional study.
  29. @andersun not sure where the currency question went. Currency always messes with me. 26 baht is approx $1aud, and I go up in 10s from there!
  30. Given the choice of anyone in the world, who would you want to have lunch with today?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  31. my celeb crush of the moment 🤐 ..out at one of those islands, likely to leave my jewelry in the hotel safe. #internationalwaters
  32. Are eyebrows considered facial hair?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  33. Yes and they should always be groomed: both for men and women.
  34. How do you pronounce Phuket?
    Suggested by   @MichaelRose
  35. @MichaelRose direct from my bar manager Jumper, you pronounce Phuket, poo-ket
    I got in the water for this shot! FYI.
  36. Do you have any favorite Cockney Rhyming slang phrases?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  37. Cockney British?! I don't really embrace that kind of lexicon @andersun! I guess I can share the Australian ones I know off the top of my head: dog and bone = phone, dead horse = sauce. Is this even what you're asking?! 😩
  38. Who are two or three of Australia's best comics right now?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  39. Going to throw to Jocelyn for this one! Joce, probs the guys from Ravens and that circle of comedians right?
  40. @Cheezit1970 vodka is my go-to for not getting too lit (read: hungover)! Not boring, but definitely safe. I'll be priming with vodka before we go out tonight!
  41. How many bahts would Jumper charge for a local beer?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  42. Local beer price is 40-70B for a beer, These are hotel bar prices.
  43. YES! Is there a rich Aussie Rhyming scheme too? Is it similar to Cockney?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  44. Given we are ancestrally convicts of that region of the Motherland, I'd say that our slang is directly derived.
  45. What amazing things have you eaten aside from Penang curry?!
    (You li.st people and your collar bone fetishes..😂😂😂)
    Suggested by   @cvlop61
  46. @cvlop61 haha! I don't want to eat anything other than panang curry!! I've eaten other curries, pad thai, whole fish, rice dishes, miso for breakfast.. when in Asia, eat Asian!
    (Excepting the time I ate McD's (which is legit Aus beef btw) bc I eat McD's in every country!)
  47. What is Jumper's favorite part of his job?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  48. Jumper has disappeared.. I think he went on his lunch break. I'm guessing his fave part is hanging by the pool with scantily clad tourists! I mean, we're already IG friends!
  49. What did you/are you having for lunch?
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  50. @jennifergster hey, love!! I won't be eating lunch. Wait, I took a croissant from the buffet. That will be my lunch. That and these bar snacks.
  51. What type of wildlife park is Steph visiting?
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  52. @jennifergster she went to the Tiger Park and the Elephant Park. She is soooooo American. Ah-ma-gaaaaddd #insidejoke
  53. Where are you going out tonight? Is the area you're in a big nightclub/party spot?
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  54. I am so happy you asked @jennifergster! We are going to an upscale Ping Pong show. If you don't know what this is, look it up and have your mind blown!
  55. @jennifergster and yes, Patong is a majorly touristy and the party town. Rather seedy actually.
  56. How likely is it that @andersun has played the lotto even once in the last, say, 15 years?
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  57. Yo, @andersun, @jennifergster is talking to you on my AMA! ;)
  58. Where is Superman?
    The hat guy, not the caped superhero
    Suggested by   @HisDudeness
  59. @HisDudeness Superman is in my room. Don't tell my husband.
    Real talk: Superman isn't in my room, he isn't my type. I'm more of a Batman gal.
  60. There is a little boy, let's approximate 12 yo, staring at me.. why do you think this is? Should I put some clothes on?!
  61. So, Turn Down For What just came on and I'm feeling turnt. Wish @Wordforword83 was here. 😔
  62. News: Prince’s vault drilled opened and there’s enough music to release a new album every year for the next century.
    Question: how does this make you feel?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  63. My immediate reaction to this news is that I'm sad that wasn't Michael Jackson's vault @andersun
    Nothing against Prince at all, mass respect for his music. I'm just more of an MJ girl if this was a 'ranked list' situation
  64. You mentioned happy hour (previous li.st) and there were drinks pictured, but you didn't say what you ordered, though you seem to be a vodka girl like me😉..what is the cocktail of choice while in Thailand?
    Suggested by   @cvlop61
  65. @cvlop61 I'm on a budget so I've been sinking beers (mostly). Our priming are a 670B bottle of vodka +soda. I'll drink vodka because it doesn't give me a hangover. The Thai whisky was surprisingly good. Best cocktail was the passionfruit/lychee/cherry one we had at the luxe resort in Surin (pictured)
