Good News!

current mood: bouncy
current song: VNV Nation - Carry You

It has been a good weekend in port! Went out for a fifty, yes, that is right fifty mile hike over the course of last weekend and got to appear at a flash mob in Waikiki.


Waikiki Flash Mob!

After that I had to rest my heels for a day and went out to find my fiftieth cache!



The good news did not end there though, this morning I was informed that the results for Second Class were available. So with anxious fingers I logged on to check... Sure enough it had me as CTR2 Select! Now I have to make the mad dash to the uniform shop to switch over my uniforms before the ceremony. All is good though, I was very worried that I may not have made it and one of the people that I work with was also pretty worried as he logged in as well. I had let him use my account to check and we both peered into the screen intently to see the results..."CTR2 Select!...but that's not my name..." Needless to say the cookies had redirected the page back to my results page and we all had a bit of a chuckle as we quickly cleared the cookies and got to the right page. He did make it as well, the ship it's self did very well as well, so well I worry that making the next test may be a bit harder...lol.

With that I leave you with some tuneage that I picked up recently...enjoy!

Vnv Nation Lyrics
"Vnv Nation Carry You lyrics"


Conceal your deepest worries
Confine your thoughts
Inside the walls you built
Of damaged pride

The light in your eyes failing
Like you're adrift
Like night pretending to be day
These storms subside
Though the past the unwanted memories
Are holding onto you
All the power in the universe
Conspires to carry you

Truth you find through your adversities
Will defend you
As your powers and all your energies
Conspire to carry you

The adversary of your soul
The blackest thoughts
That try to poison you
These storms subside
Lay down your greatest burden
Relinquish that which has control of you
And let yourself through

Though the past the unwanted memories
Are holding onto you
All the power in the universe
Conspires to carry you
Truth you find through your adversities
Will defend you
As your powers and all your energies
Conspire to carry you

Though it seems the past
And future look the same
Suffice to say that you're still here

Though the past the unwanted memories
Are holding onto you
All the power in the universe
Conspires to carry you
Truth you find through your adversities
Will defend you
As your powers and all your energies
Conspire to carry you

Looks fun but I don't think I could hike that much :P

That is the thing, while geocaching you don't really notice the distance you've traveled because of the sites you see and discover. That is what I like about it. It takes me to places that I normally wouldn't even have tried to go to.

It certainly has been interesting at times, fortunatly the good times far outnumber the bad :). It is pretty cool though, something I can share with the family because as it stands I can talk about very little about what I do with them. It is funny though, I got my girlfriends father into it so now he has been driving both his wife and my girlfriend nuts going out all the time...lol. BTW, found that Shawn of the dead icon, will probably send it to you after I get back to Oahu. Take care!

LOL! I would've loved to share them with you but the fact is if you put anything food like in a container and leave it out the animals and bugs will find a way to either get it open or make a home out of it...lol. If you look at my profile (same name as this blog, Sarge104) you will see some of the random run ins with wildlife that I've encountered and some of the sites that I've gone to. It is pretty exciting at times :).

*breaks out the brass knuckles*
sound like it is time to "tack on the crow"
2nd class is a great time. they do absolutly NOTHING except drink their coffee and direct traffic.

If something needs to be done, the chief will say "2nd class, i need this done."
The second class will just point to the e-3 or e-4 and say "Do this"
the e- 3 or the e-4 will have a problem and the 2nd class will say "talk with the chief" all while holding that cup of coffee.
