      On this date in history:

      1950 - Truman orders U.S. forces to Korea
      1990 - Days of Thunder is released
      2006 - A1C Mathews is promoted to SrA

      ah. . . life is good. i've finally gotten un-screwed by the military. my promotion to SrA (Senior Airman, E-4) was delayed because the Air Force lost my UPRG (official military records) and they didn't have a copy of them. since that happened i wasn't eligible for promotion; but my squadron came through for me and went ahead and promoted me anyways and backdated the effective date to 27 June 2006; which also means i'll receive backpay. hi-five to myself. . . *slap!

      so the guy i've been riding wireless internet off of for the last three months finally locked his network down - leaving me going back to the library. i called comcast - the Blanchard Barracks provider of internet and cable tv and the earliest they could hook me up is over a week out. they say it's so hard b/c they actually have to send somebody to the barracks to flip some switches before i can get on. oh well.

      in the mean time - my throat is still sore as a whatnot but it's finally starting to get better. And i'm still on convalescent leave until 12 October, which is freakin' sweet. hopefully i'll be spending the rest of my time back home in Cincinnati. i'm just waiting on some paperwork from the car dealer so i can drive home and register my car so i can get license plates. anyways, hope all is well - peace.

    • Sometimes I love the military

      I'm getting 10 â€" 14 days paid vacation in conjunction with a free outpatient surgery.

      I'm getting my tonsils taken out. Apparently the doctor is amazed I can even breathe â€" apparently they're so big they're touching in the back. He thinks that's why I snore so loudly and why I'm so sleepy during the day, basically I have sleep apnea and my tonsils actually block the air flow going to my lungs causing me to stop breathing at night and therefore not sleeping fully.

      I mean, I couldn't imagine if I was in college and found out I needed this operation. First off I'd have to pay for the surgery (provided I didn't have insurance) then I'd miss two weeks of classes and I'd miss two weeks of work at my after college job â€" It'd just be a mess. I mean overall the military isn't bad, free training and a skill, free food and housing and a guaranteed paycheck and job. I mean you only sacrifice all your freedoms â€" that's it.

      ok well i was going to start my blog about Generals that don't know how to work with computers. basically a general had a USB fingerprint scanner that he uses to logon to his computer with , but for some reason, it wouldn't fit into the USB port. long story short, he broke off the USB connector on his computer when he tried to remove the scanner. . . then he wonders why it won't fit into any other USB slot. so i remove the piece and plugged it in and viola! it works.

      so that was going to be my blog - i woulda drawn it out and made it a little more fun, but. . .

      i was driving home from my second job, in the leftmost lane and not speeding, going about 60. i'm listening to Weezer when i hear a really, REALLY, loud POP!! i think, 'what the hell was that?' then. . . my driver side front end . . . drops and my car starts pulling to the right really hard. i make a controlled exit across three lanes of traffic and onto the shoulder. while this happened i didn't bother putting on my emergency blinkers. . . i thought the sparks from where the driver side front wheel should have been was a pretty good sign of an emergency.

      you're thinking 'oh, so you blew a tire right?' well if i had it wouldn't be big deal right, well mathews doesn't get off so easy. . . so here's what happened:

      my driver side tie rod broke and my left tire ended up perpendicular to my car. . . while i was going 60mph, and my rotor was nowhere to be found, just gone.

      so yeah i ripped out my stereo and speakers, grabbed everything in my car (including my newly issued govt lapotp - that i re-issued myself) and got in my buddies car. i told the tow truck driver to just junk the damn thing., which costs $150. the reason i had to junk it was because the tow truck driver refused to go on base - where i live - and it was still 20 miles away and that kind of repair would be about $450. so i figured i'd just cut my losses, after all i had it three months, put over 4k miles on it, and only paid $800 for it - i'm satisfied.

      i'm going to find my title and go to sleep - i got to walk to work tomorrow morning lol - peace.

      has it really been five weeks since i've signed in? well i'm glad to see i haven't been missed.
      so for those of you that will actually read this, sorry but i've been incredibly busy lately.

      my air force job is 7am - 5pm, M-F
      my second job works 6pm - 12am, M-F
      i've been seeing a girl for about three months, but that's pretty much over now - i knew she was leaving so i didn't get serious with her

      plus she wasn't exactly the kind of girl i was looking for anyways; she's too independant and definately married to her job; however i quite enjoyed my time with her and hope the best for her future relationships. we ended ours like adults and i believe i have a lifelong friend now.

      so that's why i haven't been on - but now one of those is gone and it's quite possible (if our new squadron commander has her way) that my second job will go away. She wants to make our shop 24 hours since Andrews AFB and the Pentagon both have 24 hour shops.
      however we don't have the manning for it and, more importantly, we don't have the need for it. during the five weeks of standby i only got three calls - we just don't have the user base to justify the need and we have no 24 hour shops on base besides Security Forces.

      speaking of work - if you're curious about the laptop issue - it never showed up.
      thank you loyal listeners and i'll try to get through all your journal entries. peace.

      what did spacenomyous forget to do?

    • yes, it was a parked semi

      13 years ago

      spacenomyous

      reading otter_be's journal reminded me of my accident in Germany. this happend back in October 05. ok, let me set the stage:

      it's 6am in October in Germany - meaning it's still dark
      i just finished a boring 12 hour shift
      it's pouring rain - one of the heaviest rains i've been in
      my windshield wipers are on the slowest setting
      i'm on a road that has no painted lines
      this road is also known to have semi's parked on the sides
      i'm not speeding - i'm going 40kmh in a 50kmh (about 25mph)

      ok, so i'm cruising down this road that i've driven a few hundred times. there's an oncoming car with it's headlights on (remember it's dark). his headlights put a huge glare on my wet windshield (remember pouring rain and slowest speed wipers). i move over to give him space to pass me (remember no painted lines for lanes).

      car passes - no more glare
      wipers wipe - no more wet windshield
      parked semi in front of me - "oh shit"
      clutch in, brake in, wheel all left - *crunch* *scrape*

      damage to VW Golf GTI:
      front-right quarter panel, from right headlight to right wheel-well, smashed in from parked semi's rear bumper
      you know how in the movies cars go under semi trailers? well, that doesn't really happen. . .
      right canopy frame crunched, cracking windshield and pushing down car's suspension, followed by groove in roof from parked semi's bottom-left corner of trailer from when car went under semi trailer

      damage to Parked Semi:
      bent rear-left bumper

      Parked Semi - 1 --- VW Golf GTI - 0
      my father was told by a cop that there's always a primary and secondary cause to every accident. . .

      primary cause - my inattention
      secondary cause - semi shouldn't have been parked there

      yes, yes, go ahead and laugh - i deserve it. (but the semi still shouldn't have been there)

      That is not terrible, it's HILARIOUS. Though, when you said that, I immediately thought of the alien that says "blarg" ... and now every time I speak to my German neighbors I'm going to imagine them in RvB settings.

      And, strangely enough, that kind of fits them.
