current location: Somewhere in the Pacific
current mood: ecstatic
current song: Disturbed- Land of Confusion

January 3rd - 12th I will not be able to be reached via ships email. Please use my Hotmail account till after the 12th, thanks in advance!

Anyway, I go back to my real job of signals analysis today though it will be too late to help my shipmates with the team builder stuff we've been doing. The entire ship did real well and the crew is very upbeat with our showing with our west coast brethren. We are kinda the red headed stepchild of the destroyer squadron since we are based in Hawaii. Things will get even better as we go back to port and people will be able to go and join their families for the holidays.

Ripped up my hands pretty good with our last replenishment at sea. The P&D (phone and distance) line was being ripped from us pretty quick and most of the people I was with have blisters and sores along with me. For those that are asking the phone and distance line allows our ship another way to communicate with the other ship via sound powered telephones and allows the bridge to visually see how far way we are from the other ship as well.

I will be on duty on Christmas, it's not bad though, the galley will be preparing a very good meal for us. Unfortunately I do not have enough days of leave to go home for the holidays, but before the deployment I will be able to go home and see the family and Jen for a few days. Anyway I was going to post some lessons learned but I will have to do that a little later.

i spent many holidays down in the "pit"
i remember many times making phone calls to the quarter deck "This is Petty Officer Walker down in the Engineroom. We have an unauthorized visitorin the Main Spaces. He is fat, wearing red and is carrying an enourmous large bag around. Get Security down here."
The reply was the same "This is the quarter deck. We have the fat man in red. Also, mess deck is reporting they will be serving venison stew tonight for mid-rats."
