Rioting Protesters close Bangkok Airport

Not kidding! (I linked the article above on the title.)

"International flights to and from Thailand's main airport were halted last night after rampaging anti-government protesters surged through police cordons and stormed the sprawling terminal."

I am fine. I'm sitting in an internet cafe in Bangkok without any shoes on; ate fried rice and coffee for breakfast. All the flights incoming after mine were diverted or cancelled. I took a taximeter to the hostel and everything was good.

I'm planning to head south towards the beaches and out of Bangkok in a couple days, as Carrie wants to see the city when she arrives.

Thank goodness! Ross left a message on your cell phone - he was very worried about you:). I was merely concerned that you would get stuck in the airport for a long while.
Have fun and keep us posted. Fried rice for breakfast sounds cheap, right? Way to go.
