      So, I was watching Invader Zim (Disc 2), by the way Gir kicks ass, and for some odd reason just fell asleep at the end of it. I was sleeping wonderfully, which is unusual for me since i've had sleeping issues since i've been out here. Well, all of a sudden there was this big "BOOM" and everything in my room shook to all hell. I woke like "ok, i'm not dead, what the fuck was that?!" A minute or two later another one, but a little bit quiter and didn't shake as much, so i'm thinking "that's got to be a controlled det, please let it be a contolled det!" A couple minutes later a third one goes off and of course a little quieter and no shaking really. By this time since I haven't heard any alarms I know that it's a controlled det, so I go right back to sleep. Well, apparently about an hour before I was supposed to get up, we really did have mortars launched at the base and I slept through all the damn alarms, go figure. The only reason I knew is because they came knocking on my door for accountablilty since I didnt' call in after the all clear. Well, that was how my night/morning started.

      At work today I didn't do much, just the norm. Played the hell out of some Call of Duty again. At one point we decided to play some Star Craft: Brood Wars. Now, I haven't played this since 2002 and I had my ass handed to me by my friend like I was a little Bitch. Well, that prompted me to come to the realization that I really have no desire to play that game again. So, I went back to playing some Call of Duty. DInner rocked tonight, we went to another chow hall across the base, never been to this one and we have 4 of them, and it was like heaven. Even their freaking sinks to wash their hands were better then the other 2 that I normally go to. I had been doing pretty good and haven't had a soda since the 23rd of September, well I gave in and had a Dr. Pepper with this heavenly meal and had Chocolate Cake with milk. Ah, I was so spoiled tonight. So, this has been an outstanding day. I hope everyone is haveing a good day like me.

      See, even in Iraq you can have good days :)!!!

      So today started out really bad, only 3 hours of sleep before having to come and work a 12 hour shift, ah that sucks. Well, I had pizza hut for dinner (yeah, pizza hut in Iraq, leave it to the Air Force to bring it here), sounds good right? WRONG!!! I told them I wanted Grilled Chicken only and what do they do, they put freakin' peppers, onions and diced tomatoes on it as well. So, that made the night even crapier. I then took a very comfy 2 hour nap at my desk, that freakin' rocked!!! After that, I did a little work and then every one in the tent decided to play Call of Duty: UO. There were only 7 of us playing but it kicked ass, that killed like 3 hours right there. So, i'm in a good mood now. If only our freakin' Instant Messengers would come back online so I can chat with my friends, damn Comm Squadron!!!! I hope everyone had a very good weekend and didn't get into to much trouble :P.

    • So here's the latest.....

      Today has been pretty decent, only have to work 6 hours instead of 12 and it's goin' by pretty quickly. I'm still rackin' my brain tryin' to figure out how people get awards on here? ARGH!!! It was nice to sleep tonight 10 hours of sleep after watching about 2 or 3 hours of Invador Zimm, ah Gir is the shit!!!! My friend is gonna by me a "Fluffy" for x-mas, but I told her to wait till February. If you've looked at my pics, you know what a "Fluffy" is. A girl I work with out here knows someone who breeds those little dogs and is gonna hook me up with the number and stuff. Ah, today is a good day. Hmmm.....I guess there wasn't much to say except about 80 days till I go home!!!!!!!! More tats for, i'm goin' through freakin' INK withdrawl (if that's possible)! I hope you all are having a good Saturday. :)

      So, I come into work today and our internet is running like (gotta steal a quote from Full Metal Jacket) "old people f**k!" It stayed like that for 4 hours, it was taking like 5 minutes just for 1 page to load and most pages just timed out. They still haven't fixed whatever is up with our messengers so of course I can't chat with my friends back home. This is like the 3rd day, even though the first day probably shouldn't count because we had it for the first part of the night. Anyways, I finally posted pics of myself. None of them are any good, but it's something. When i'm in the states normally my hair is gelled and I actually give a damn about what I look like, but i'm in Iraq so i'm not trying to impress anyone. I really hate having my picture taken anyways. So, nothing has really went to well today, lack of sleep (although I did make it up with a 2 hour nap a little while ago, hell yeah), nothing good at the chow hall, and messenger/internet issues. Maybe tomorrow will be better :(. I hope you all are having a better day than me.

    • MMMMM............Good!

      Ok, so I woke up tonight (since it's like 8 to 11 hours ahead of anywhere in the states here) and was feeling like crap, so I figured it was gonna be another crapy night of work. Well the Docs told me that all my blood work came out fine and well within' all normal ranges. So, I was like rock on, maybe it won't be so bad tonight. Once I get into my office I remember tonight is seafood night at the chow hall, the night gets better and better, hell yeah. A few of us go to the chow hall after getting everything turned over and settled in and I get my Lobster and shrimp (yeah, that's right, Lobster and Shrimp in the desert and in Iraq at that, oh it was good!!!!) and for desert I have myself a big bowl of Baskin Robins Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with Butterscotch, Vanilla, and White Chocolate topping all over it. Damn, that was a good dinner. I get back to work and decide to watch an awsome movie that I haven't seen in a long time, Replacement Killers. Ah, if the night keeps goin' like this, I'll have to say it is my best night in Iraq, not counting the night before I leave this place that is. Well, back to my movie, thought I'd share my night so far. I hope everyone is having a good night like I am :).

      Well, today is a good day so far. Last night I had to fast for like 12 freaking hours, my whole shift at work. Yeah that sucked and I was irritable as all hell when I got off. They took my blood and I went home. When I got to my room I figured it was to much of a bother to walk to the chow hall so I took my daily dose of Creatine and then ate the hell out Peanut M&Ms, Snickers and Milky Way Minis. One would think that all that sugar would keep you awake for a bit, but no, I watched a couple episodes of RvB and passed out within an hour and a half, I missed watching the newest episode at that!!! Well, I finally got up 14 hours later! Luckily it was my half day today so I could sleep in anyways. Amazingly i've been awake at work today and I've been able to eat real food, so good, mmmmm. Well, I think that's enough for now. I hope you all have a pleasant day to :).

    • Interesting Ponderings....<wbr />.....<wbr />......

      So, today has been another wonderful day in good ol' Central Iraq. Fixed some stuff, took a nap, surfed the web, checked my e-mail. Shows you how busy I was right. Well, when I checked my e-mail I was sent a video clip of a guy that was constipated trying to take a poo, he was straining so hard he passed and then crapped himself. Normally I would delete it and say WTF, but today in my bordom I just said to myself "IS THAT F'ING POSSIBLE?!" I mean come on, he passed out from taking a poo, so I went on google and did some research and found out that you can pass out from straining to hard. When you do this you lose all control of bodily functions. So the moral of this is, don't strain to hard and remember to breathe or you might hurt yourself and wind up in an e-mail like that poor fool I saw.

      On another note, why the hell does it get cold in the freaking desert? What the hell! I actually needed to where my DCU top with a coat and gloves. Surprisingly no Alarm Reds for 2 days now, oh happy days. Well, I think that's all for now. I hope you all are having as much fun as I am. :)

      Additional Topic
      So, I went up in Karma today because someone liked what I posted for someones' little poll. If you would like to read it go to NicoleAnne profile page, look at her journal for the "What's the worst thing you ever done to (or treated) your boyfriend/girlfriend" comments and find me, it's Number 19. I hope you find it just as amusing as they did. And before you ask, I don't think I would do it again :).

      So, today we get to drop down alert levels. That freaking body armor sucks to carry around all the time. Hopefully we can relax for a bit. I've got another friend now on here, she's uber sexy, lol. She might be doin' Army ROTC but I can let that go. So, i'm about 32% done with my rotation here now, time is just goin' by faster and faster. I do declare that today is a good day. Oh yeah, ILLINOIS CHICKS ROCK!!! :) I hope everyone has a pleasant day too.

      Don't these freaking Iraqi's have anything better to do than mess up my chow time. It's like 30 minutes till I go home for the day/moring and they do this crap!!! This is like 3 days in a row of this one.

      It was a pretty uneventful day today, I watched a movie, ate some chow, played some spades, hell even took an hour long nap. Hopefully i'll make it to the gym at a decent hour today, unlike yesterday. God I was tired. So, I got my first friend request yesterday, i'm so happy :). Well, I guess that's all for today.

    • Today ROCKS!!!!!

      Well, I acually got 8 hours of sleep after work yesterday. It's been about 2 weeks since that happened, i've only been getting like 3 or 4 hours tops each day and it was killin' me! It's also a good day since I only have to work half of today (1 am to 7 am). So, Iraq is goin' by at an alright pace. It's not so bad over here. It's just really, really boring. All there is to do is work, go to the gym and sleep. Well, that's all for now, time to get back to work.

      Good call, good call. Your rotation should be about over, right? I can't even remember what AEF you are attached to. Look on the bright-site: at least you should have some serious bank stashed away now. Not like my last AEF deployment where my Per Diem was the same as yours ($3.50/day). But NOT tax free. No Hostile Fire pay. No COLA. And instead of Iraq, it was Japan, so instead of making money, I came back owing money. :\
