Today, I accidentally texted the CD instead of my sitemate. I told him I thought he was a dick for spending so much time in the capitol. FMPCL.

Teenage taxi driver tells me he wants to have sex with me at the hotel. I have my hand on the door handle, he's pawing at my legs and speeding up the car. I tell him we should stop for a drink first and as soon as the car slows, I tuck, roll and run. WTF.

After two years of working my ass off for my community, during my very last week in my site a group of people at a town party said I "did not do as much as the last volunteer" and that they really learned nothing from me whatsoever. AWESOME.

Was visiting a PC friend in the city near my village. After drinking quite a bit, we decided to snort his ambien. After that was consumed, we moved on to the med kit. Later dubbed the experience a Noah's Ark: because we did two of every pill.

I was feeling extra generous during sex with my local boyfriend last night, so I asked him what he wanted from me - absolutely anything. He asked me to give him a baby. Too real. Deal breaker.

Yesterday the maintenance man came to do "work" on the water pipe he laid down last month -- but he stole a big section of the pipe instead and poked holes in the rest to render it inoperative. FMPCL.

today I have no water and no money. I just ate a couple of uncooked potatos and I'm just going to pretend they are apples.

Tried some of the local moonshine while on site visit, staying with another host family. Stomach in stitches, tried to shit in a bag, but let out a massive fart. Then immediately released gut-wrenching vomit into fart bag, pants still around ankles.

The wifi internet in my apartment just went out, and I had to plug in the DSL. FMPCL

Most of the volunteers in our group we're shit kickers, but a select few of us got drunk regularly and actually bonded with the Armenians. The others were too scared to try and adapt to the alcoholic life style. RPCV Armenia A-17

Had sex in a hotel with 50 other PCVs that was apparently too loud for someone's tender ears. Read about it on FMPCL. Regrets nothing.

Dropped my toothbrush down the toilet. Fished it out, boiled it for 5 minutes, and it's back in service. FMPCL.

Changed out of my PCV gear into some American clothes (jeans and blouse) to dance at our COS party. A stinging pain sears up my leg and I grab my pocket and run into a room to take off the pants. A scorpion crawls out of the pocket

was giving a speech at a local event and wanted to know how to say bless you all. Asked a student how to say it in Russian. He thought it would be funny if I said fuck you all. Yup this is how my entire village met me.

I was on a bush taxi when it broke down. After an hour they check the gas tank. We were out of gas, not broken down. Made it to my destination, but late.

Today, I bought bean-cakes from the same lady I buy bean-cakes from every day. Today, one had a 1/2" screw cooked inside.
