Hey Freaks.
Sorry it's been so long. Been bored, been busy, been sick, got healthy, then bored again. Somewhere in there I was completely overwhelmed by tasking at work.
When I'm asleep, I sometimes imagine myself in a Greek Temple, high on a mountain overlooking lush, green valleys. The sun is shining and all is right with the world.
Also, Condi Rice is wearing a slinky little number and feeding me grapes.
I sleep like a baby.
Then Nancy Pelosi showes up with a Battle Ax and just fuckes it all up.
(I think my friend Bob will appreciate the reference.)
Which brings me to my point.
I need a drink so freakin' bad, I can barely stand it. I would give my kingdom for a Fat Tire.
Does anyone know how to make a still out of common household items?
I have a plethora of empty water bottles, duck tape, parachute cord, ziplock bags, and nasty junk food.
If someone can figure out a way to build a still out of all that crap then please, I'm all ears, really. You would be my savior.
I hope everyone appreciates the irony in the photo above, I know I did.

Where the wild things are...

They're ahhh...here! And not just the insurgent Islam-o-Fascists, either.
This guy was appearantly trapped on Camp Victory.(the other side of town from me)
Looks pissed, doesn't he!
I had never heard of desert wolves before I saw these pics. His coat is an interesting color, isn't it? That's probably the best desert camouflage there is.
I bet he has friends. What do you think?
Sorry It's been so long since I posted. I have three bosses at the moment and the tasking has been coming fast and loose. They have me writing up all kind of plans and policy, realy boring stuff, too. I'm almost four months in, now, and need some time off. I will get a few days to myself early next month, all I have to do is make it that long without ending up like Corporal Klinger.
A Section 8 just wouldn't be my style...
Take care, everyone.
