ONE MORE WEEK!

Sunday, February 27th, 2005

Anyone who has read this post, knows that I’ve been extremly busy. That guy Joe, whom Dave and I worked together to cover for, has quit. I have decided to take his route and leave the bakery. My boss at the bakery has talked me into staying on as the Saturday baker, […]

I’m still alive, I swear!

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

Yes, blood is still pumping through my body and at times rational thought can escape. But that really isn’t the point of this post. The real point is. . .

Today, February 22nd, is my twenty-first birthday. I am fully legal. It is a scary thought, isn’t it?

For those of you that want to buy me […]

Those sneaky Russians

Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

Today, the Kyoto pact, a treaty designed to ease the globes sufferage of mankind through strict reductions of global warming gasses went into effect, although without U.S. involvement. The lack of involvement has caused fourteen U.S. Senators to put foward a bill to force this country to go along with this economic disaster. […]

Update on my new job

Saturday, February 12th, 2005

Those for you that can remember back far enough will know that I’ve left my desk job and headed out to guard the ammo dump. Now, this is definitely a new experience for me and so far, it has ups and downs.

I work two days straight, four hours on, eight hours off, repeat. That is […]

Do you work? Or not work?

Thursday, February 10th, 2005

One of my daily routines is check out Doonsebury. Each morning (2:00 a.m. MST), after I feed the cats, start coffee, attend to any laundry and take a shower, I grab a cup of joe, start up the ‘ol computer and head straight to Doonsebury. Don’t ask me why, I just do.

One […]

So, which is it?

Monday, February 7th, 2005

The four Egyptions captured yesterday are free. The big question on my mind deals with a pair of contradictory statements. The first is from this ariticle

Kidnappers released four Egyptian engineers who had been abducted in the Iraqi capital 24 hours earlier

and the second comes from this one

U.S. forces stormed a house to free […]

Do him a favor

Sunday, February 6th, 2005

Ward L. Churchill. A man who has found himself at the very center of controversy on many occasions, is now a household name. The Colorado University Board of Regents is considering removeing him from his tenured posistion at CU. Governor Owens wants him gone. My fellow citizens here in Colorado […]

ASP Guard

Friday, February 4th, 2005

I start guard duty tomorrow morning at 0800. I’m really nervous about it, but I know it’ll all be okay. The hours are even worse than I expected. I am not allowed to leave the compound during the two days that I am on duty. After a shift I head from the guard shack to […]

Austin, Jordan, Matt, and the whole damned ’sphere.

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

I really have no clue what in the world got into everyone over the last two days that I’ve been missing because of work. At this point, I really don’t care. Yes, Austin was wrong not to give credit where do, but he corrected his mistake. Yes, Jordan was wrong for calling the young guy […]

More on Sheriff Hill

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

I’ve been following the Sheriff Hill story fairly closely (thanks to DvlDogLvr for this update), and it looks like the deputies are getting closer to being reinstated.

There were court dates both yesterday and today down in Georgia. Yesterday’s case prohibited Hill from any acts of vengeance against the deputies that he fired his first day […]

Marine bloggers

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

I got the idea today that I should start a BlogRoll for those Marines/former Marines out in the ’sphere. If you fall or know someone who falls into that category, please place the link in the comments section. I will begin building the BlogRoll later tonight.

Craziness!

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

The last few days have been especially crazy so I’ve not posted much.

Staff Sergeant has pinned on Warrant Officer and leaves in two weeks for The Basic School. Good luck, sir. I am changing commands for a bit. I’m not sure exactly how long I will be over with Supply Battalion, but I know I’m […]
