AHHH Smell that Christmas

Listen to that... do you hear it? Ahhh yes the sound of Radioshack, Sears, and other assorted conglomerates getting their sticky traps ready for another Christmas full of stampeding consumers and jolly fat santa people. Its surely the time of year when cash ruptures from our ass like some kind of particle collider. I look forward to the ass rupturing though, what would our economy do without customers like me that buy really neat things that won't likely make it past new years before it gets broken or outlived.
I can see myself now, window shopping, looking at that shiny new Apple-Peelings disposal unit "Geezus i need that, it will save me hundreds of dollars on apple peelings disposal costs, just THINK of the possiblities!". Well im not actually that gullible but interesting enough during the Christmas season I just tend to feel more spendy. LOL Spendy is a cool word, i just made it up. If it's already a word, then i've made it my word. Either way it perfectly describes the Christmas mood. =)

Badass Shell Ejection

I didn't get to go to the Saw Range to take this picture but one of the other soldiers got some good shots. There is nothing quite like the sound of a Squad Automatic Weapon peeling the next round off the ammo belt and simultaneously sheering the brittle links holding each precious cartridge together. Now imagine discharging several thousand rounds of ammo through that beautiful machine. Its a surreal experience that can only be compared to some kind of exotic sex. Anyways I think im getting distracted from the point. This is a badass picture of two soldiers in Task Force Pueblo. I think one is Farish and the other is Wallace. I can spot those BCG'S from 23 clicks. Well im done with this post for now, I might come back and add more shots but until then.

Feel Like a Million Bucks

I don't think I every touched base on what I did for Thanksgiving. I put in for 6 days of leave so I could go home and see my family. Got to hang out with my brothers and waste them on Halo 2, which I might add is one of the most beautifully designed games out there right now. We had fun, basically we just ate and watched TV and hung out. I also got to go to Fayetteville and hang out with my good friend Heath, IM glad that he hasn't changed a bit. He's fun to hang out with. Also I went house shopping while I was home. I found the place that I want and now IM just going through all the mind-numbing paperwork that is associated with anything bank related! I think IM getting signature cramps from signing too much paperwork. LOL =D "Uh doctor, I've been having a lot of problems with my hands cramping up. Any Ideas for what would cause this?" "Are you getting a house mortgage, or anything else banking or financially related?" "Why yes, IM getting a mortgage" "MY GOD, you have signers cramp, we need to operate immediately or you could be crippled for the rest of your li.. this week." That's probly a little exaggerated but hey there's nothing wrong with being a little dramatic from time to time. Well IM out for now, wish me luck on the house and everything. Carpe Diem>>
