Running the incredible risk of having my 'great idea' stolen by a nefarious ajarn lurker...here it is:
It's a book like some of those farang/thai relationship how-to/ain't it all so interesting/love-sex manual thingamabobers banging around local bookshop...but it's spliced up with a western food/thai food cookbook.
The whole concept will be worked around culinary themes and metaphors...which you can help me with here, because I'm about 45 seconds into developing this idea....You know......

"If you're not interested in changing where you work (and thus the student population, obviously) then a) your success at applying various and sundry teaching techniques is unlikely to have anything to do with how effective they are in general, and b) your sweeping generalizations about Thai students serve no purpose but to fuel your inertia and your feeling of being an 'insider'. Sadly (for you) few who read your sweeping generalizations will perceive it that way, but hey if it makes you feel good, knock yourself out." -zeusdogg
You could call it "My Hot Prik."

Don't get me wrong - I don't want a 'serious' board but I'd like posts to be either genuinely amusing, informative and/ or thought provoking.
