So, there I was in the middle of the Pacific...

April 23rd, 2007 (02:24 am)

current location: Guam
current mood: uncomfortable
current song: VNV Nation - Honour (FDR VERSION)

Guam, what can I say?... Hot, yep, dusty, yep, more strip bars then you can shake a stick at; yep. The people here are excessively nice though so it makes up for the few bad things.

I had a good couple of days here though; at least the couple that I didn't have duty on. Got to walk around and visit the giant walk through aquarium here that reminded me of San Diego, and got to play a softball game that was fun but we lost so that tempered the goodness. The way over was aright, of course you have those people that rub each other the wrong way just because they see each other every day and cannot get away from one another but other wise its been going very well. Of course I made the mistake of calling my girlfriend from here... well, it wasn't a mistake but she refused to acknowledge the fact that it was costing me a bundle just for the five minutes that I could talk to her. At least I made her feel better for a little bit.

Other then that I am prepairing to confront the middle east in all its splendor, guns, bullets, and death. Should be a little bit of a culture shock but it will be something new and probably something I'll never see once I leave the navy.

:( You're heading out to that mess? I'll keep you in my prayers. My brother is actually out there too working for an independant contractor, although he's here in the states for a month or so on vacation.

*Waves* I've got a feeling that things will get better sooner or later so that is why we're out here...I hope your brother keeps safe as well, I worry about him because he doesn't have 300 plus people to take care of his back while over there. :), take care and talk to you later!

Now, as a Navy boy, i am not to concern about the Mid-East, HOWEVER, there is the passage near Indonesia (Go kill a couple of Pirates for Uncle Boiler)
I remember calling my mother at her work place while i was in France.
Return home Godspeed
BTW, did i mention go run over some pirates

LOL! And here I thought they were speed bumps, I mean, boats... My mentor has a grand plan for when we cross the line...I'm thinking it involves duct tape and flamable liquids.

I've got my ipod so the rock'n and rolling never stops. It's been pretty calm so far so I hope it continues. As for staying safe...well those knee knockers hurt if your not awake enough to step over them...;)

*Hugs and gives a cookie!*

I doubt any terrorist wants to take on my girlfriend so I should be alright. Thanks for the good thoughts, even if they make my forked tail itch ;).
