Well, it's 0211 and i'm at the Hodgi Internet cafe. I went and grabbed my laptop and I'm trying to install Gentoo on it right now. It will be nice to use a more familiar OS again. Tomorrow I have the day off! So i'll be able to clean up my room and take care of some stuff. I managed to get my laundry done today and did some serious cleaning of my weapons. So i should have mostly free time tomorrow.

I had to climb on top of my house and squeegee off the roof. It has rained so much here and my connex leaks bad. I had a cooler half full of water from last night It's strange, but it reminds me of Dan's basement. OMG, and i found a set of golf clubs on the roof next to mine. I pointed my light over and was like wtf? So i stepped over onto my neighbors house and sure enough, a set of golf clubs. I think i'll practice hitting rocks across the LZ tomorrow. Who knows? maybe i'll start a trend. All the secret golfers will emerge and we'll form a brotherhood of amateur rock golf in iraq across the LZ.

The Mongolian guys are starting to get crazy here. They usually leave us Americans alone, but they've been stopping people randomly and checking IDs and stuff. Eric was stopped the other day driving in the hoopty. They kept saying "KBR numba" (KBR number). He tried to explain it didn't have one (Because it is pretty much a stolen truck). Vaughn (Dan knows him) was stopped on the way to the bathroom. He was in his PTs and didn't have his ID. They jumped out of the truck like they were assaulting an objective and demanded he show his ID. He said he didn't have it, he was going to take a shit. They would yell "ID!" and he would yell back "SHIT!". That went on for a minute until they gave up and drove away.

more to come.. probably.

lol, you know those caps you put on the end of you rifle to keep dirt and stuff out? He's blasted like three off already. He's always pissed afterwards too.

Gentoo?? Why don't you install a real mans OS (eg. FreeBSD)

OMG, no way.. i'm a big gentoo supporter. They took the BSD idea, mixed it with some Debian, got some great developers, and created one of the best distro's ever.

Golf in a desolate area. Reminds me of Lost.

O_o at the ID checks.

Let's say I take a golf club to a Mongolian guys head the next time he gets between me and the call of nature. -anonymous

hope you enjoyed your day off. man, if you got good at your desert golf, you could bring it back here, and we could play battle badminton, desert golf, and micro machines...kind of like the triathalon of geeks.

Hey, this URL is to a video thing that is a tribute to our OIF service members. This music is a little 'churchy' but there are some great photos -- one has an idea for a sign you could use for your golf driving range -- also has a great photo of someone elses hoopty. It's a bit emotional in places but also good for some smiles.
