Update!  
Everyone here is fine. We're still hanging out at Bucca waiting for.. whatever. The phones and internet were down for a few days so i'm posting asap just incase it goes down again. I took pictures of my Combat Life Saver bag for Sarah.. the new Sarah. Now that we're not working in the TIF anymore, I can use my camera again! We're all just kinda sitting around *cough* packing *cough* waiting for HQ to make the next move. We'll probably be back home in January. It depends really on when our relief arrives.
Dan, I mailed home two boxes. One has my laptop in it. It's just stuff we don't need right now. We're all mailing home stuff to make a possible move easier. Feel free to rumage through and use whatever you want. Just no selling it. My roommate sold a bunch of my stuff.. which really doesn't improve our roommate relationship. When I came back from leave my room was trashed. I made a point to clean everything and have all my stuff organized and out of the way before i left. It's still all messed up. So, i got my money from the guy for the things he sold. He even sold a DVD player that I borrowed from someone else! Talk about jacked up.
Anyways. I got my SAW back! Went out and zero'd it today. It's not my original, but it's in really good shape. The old one had half the paint baked off and several metal tears and breaks around the barrel. All from use here. Oh, and my team is getting a brand new truck. We haven't seen it yet but we're going to pick it up from Bagdad in a week or so. It's supposed to have less than 200 miles on it. Versus our old one thats been here since mid 2003 and the speedometer doesn't work so we don't even know how many miles we put on it.
It's strange to have so much spare time here. I'm not complaining though. Yesterday I went to the PX four times just to do something. Ever since this new group of AirForce came in they've been improving the area. Soon there's going to be a swimming pool! Thats friggin crazy.. Thats where those inflated bugets are going. Into the swimming pools. How much does water cost per gallon here anyways? Probably depends who's buying.

Gotta go.. times up.. I love you guys!! Be back soon.

sold YOUR stuff?!?!? i'd be killing people if that happened to me, or atleast trying to get some sort of disciplinary action going. like getting his pay rerouted to your account or something. if that doesn't work, maybe some good ol' fashioned dirty work :-p

i haven't sent your contacts yet, sorry, i read in eric's journal that you were probably moving, and i didn't want them to get lost in the mail. do you want me to go ahead and send them, or wait till you get your new addy?

things here were really rough for a while after you left, but they're getting better, hopefully everything will be back to 'normalcy' in about a week or so.

I got the money for my stuff, so thats ok. Besides, we're moving and i don't really need a TV anymore. Actually, with the contacts, could you take out a set of each and mail them in an envelope? One set is 5.? and the other 4.? .. i think so anyways.

Did something happen? Is everyone ok?
Dan: sakewarraven on October 30th, 2005 03:37 pm (UTC)
ok, i'll send a set of each of those.. probably on tuesday, since that's my slow day.

nothing super horrible happened, just sarah and i had a, i guess you could call it a small falling out.. but, after talking about it things cleared up. and we decided to give each other some space for a week or so. that was about a week ago, so i'm hoping to hear from her soon, so we can have a good sit-down-face-to-face talk. The topics include the ones that i was talking to you about. So, once everything is out in the open and each party understands the other's predicament, then the solutions will become self-evident.

so, yes, everything is ok, nothing for you to worry about, since you've got enough on your plate.. like your stuff getting sold, moving again, and just being part of a unit that's.. hmm.. not up to par? so, keep your focus, get the job done, and come home safe. :)

everything is fine and peachy. in fact, i had an awesome week and weekend. i've basically just been going to work and school and hanging out in between. sarah and i have been doing the same ole same ole. i went to a kick ass house party in m-boro this weekend, if you want to see pics go to :www.intheboro.net and look up the Tyne Party on Saturday night. I'm the one in the blond hair and blue dress. ahh the week is about to start again, so i'm about to go hibernate until monday.

wtf? He sold your possessions?
Selling your stuff=stealing. Yep, go get him disciplined or turn him into the cops, as that is theft.

hey man, i got one of your boxes, the one w/ the lappy in it. did you have a lock on it or something? because there was a ziptie where a lock would usually go. i checked and everything seemed to be in there. if you want to double check send me a list of what should be in there.

so i'm guessing there's one more box out there? i'll be waiting for it. in the meantime do you mind if i watch any of the movies? or play any of the psp games?

yea.. the other box has all the instructions reguarding the footlocker. I figured the smaller one would arrive first.. what an ass of me to make an attempt at common sense. But basicly, you can do whatever you please with the stuff.. except sell it, that's bad. The passwds for Jessica are coming in the second box. But don't leave her on because i think the proc fan is failing. Clogged with sand or something.

Oh yea.. and the ziptie is a-ok. That's what the mail people put on it. If i put a lock on it i would have to have given them the key, which seemed pretty self-defeating to me. But yea man, have at it.

lappy cleaning
D. & S. I bought a service contract on the lappy. I can send it to you (it will have to be the original) so you can take it to Best Buy and get it cleaned and serviced. You want to do that?

guess what sean? sarah and matt are a couple now. and its all thanks to you. she wanted me to tell you thanks...a million times over. so come back home so we can all hang out.
Carnestibman on November 3rd, 2005 09:14 pm (UTC)
Life's too short to hope things will just come together.. although i don't think i'm really allowed to say such things, since i'm the worst at it. I'm glad they're going out and having a good time. Pacmatt seemed like a cool guy. Maybe i'll be able to meet him in a couple months.

Hey.. you two owe me some unkicks! ..meddling is so much fun.
prettierinpink: geeksterprettierinpink on November 4th, 2005 04:54 pm (UTC)
