@mackaysuzie Everything is funny. That’s the secret.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve been given plenty to think about, about Japantown here in HCMC, and about foreigners working in Japan.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @paulkidd Well indeed. Hence my amusement at being in Japantown with a contact last night. Fascinating but weird.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@paulkidd @SnarkyPlatypus You may or may not have seen my comment earlier about the moneyboys just saying they’re on PrEP when, like, no.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to paulkidd

@paulkidd @SnarkyPlatypus I am so conscious of my status as a neo-colonialist right now. I’ve had so many approaches here in HCMC. Creepy.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to paulkidd

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve only met @paulkidd briefly, but I kinda know we’re on the same page for a lot of this stuff. Sigh.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@paulkidd Indeed. But as long as the relevant corporate presence was there then we can all sleep safely in our beds.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to paulkidd

@paulkidd And I’m in Vietnam right now, which makes it a lot easier.
