      I've almost been in Va. for a month and it already feels like I've been here forever. I'm not saying that it's a bad thing, but boot camp feels like a distant memory. I guess I thought it would continue feeling new for a while. Maybe it's just that it was easy to get comfortable here, as opposed to boot camp where I new got comfortable. I can say I'm happy here. There really is nothing to complain about, aside from some disorganization, but then again it is the military, right?

      and hit my chin on the corner of a fountain machine.

      Luckily I have awesome friends who called an ambulance that took me to get stitches put in.

      This brings my grand total to 15 stitches in my chin... awesome.

      Note to self... don't ever go 9 hours without eating again, I still haven't had anything nourishing to eat. Just some saltines and OJ at the hospital and some pop-tarts when I got back on base. The galley opens in 15 minutes... I can't wait to eat me some breakfast time chow.

      ...and no I wasn't drinking last night.

      Iron Bowl Friday! So glad I have the day off. I had duty yesterday so I ate Thanksgiving at the galley. Which, to my surprise, wasn't that bad. Now I'm tasking myself with the chore of finding a bar in Virginia that will have the Alabama game on the TV. I could watch it in the barracks but we're staying one of two dry barracks on base, and I am not staying sober today.

      So, I hope you all had a happy Give Thanks-ing day and have an even better Christmas.

      I will be spending mine on base. It's not that bad really, it's kind of like being in a college town during summer vacation.

      Also, you guys still update A LOT

      I'm reading but not commenting.

      Smells like raw sewage and The Field Museum is cool... but there is too much to take in.

      Also, Tom you're a dick.

      Also, also... If you're a fan of 1960's rock-n-roll and Philip Seymour Hoffman (like I am) do yourself a favor and go see Pirate Radio.

      wearing pink and white stripped pajama bottoms...

      I'm now a US Navy sailor.

      I leave for my schooling in Virginia Tuesday morning.

      Navy boot camp is a breeze... sort-of... it wasn't as physically demanding as I was hoping, but I still lost 10 lbs and about an inch off my waist. It was far more challenging mentally and emotionally at times. I got choked up at my capping ceremony when I received my actual NAVY baseball cap.

      When I have more time (in about a week or so) I'll catch up on everything...

      So much internet to check, so little time...

      Also, I and Love and You, the new Avett's album, kicks more ass than anything else in this world.

    • Here We Go

      Capt_Ed

      Tomorrow I leave to go to Tennessee from there I'll catch a plane to Illinois. I start basic training on Thursday. I am equal parts nervous and excited. Excited because I'm getting to finally start my adventure into this new life plan I have for myself and nervous because it is a new experience.

      “A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.â€Â

      -Denis Waitley


      My grandfather called me this morning to wish me luck and to remind me that we as people don't make mistakes. We might make bad decisions when faced with an option but that the poor choices are what make us who we really are. I've heard that before, I think, but it never really clicked with me till now. I feel like I've made bad decisions in my life and I know I'll make more, and that the ones I've made thus far are but drops in the bucket compared to the ones to come. I'll be a better person for them... older, wiser... maybe not smarted... but more experienced.

      “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.â€Â

      - Andre Gide


      I'd like to think that I've lost sight of the shore before... and that somehow I was able to swim back but that's just not true. I either was rescued or never went for a swim at all. I won't lie, I love reading quotes that other people have written and try to remember them for use at a later date so that I sound deeper... and maybe slightly prolific. Here's another from Andre Gide.

      “A caterpillar who seeks to know himself would never become a butterfly.â€Â

      That's a good one to end on... Hopefully I'll be out of basic training by Thanksgiving. That's my goal at least.

      All update you guys when I'm done.

      See ya later.

      I really like the mesh idea. That would be easy and it would create a lot of bumps. I might even tilt the glass a little just so it doesn't turn into a real waterfall. Just to keep it on the glass and not bounce off.

      I almost went with a slit idea, some sort of contained delivery system with a limiting opening. The reason I didn't is that I would worry about the rates. If I fill it up faster than it can leak out, I'm creating an unstable pressure difference. And I'm not cleaning that shit up. So I plan to use the unevenness of the flow to make it work.

      maybe. It's all on paper. Who knows what will work.

      anyway, good idea.
