Still here, everything is good. It's a bit early in the morning..

I thought i discovered a day off. Our truck was deadlined today because the batteries aren't charging. blah blah.. we worked on it for two hours or so. Then our squadleader says that since our truck was down, we wouldn't be going out of the wire tomorrow. Umm.. wha? If we deadline our truck, we get the day off? And the whole time we've been the only team to not have a deadlined vehicle. Or atleast not for very long. It's like that secret that everyone knows except you. Anyways, they went ahead and gave a bunch of people the day off. So do we fix our truck on our day off or what?

geez, i'm sure this isn't even coherent. Way too much non-sleeping. Though i think Eric has me beat on sleepless nights. He does his TOC duties and comes out on missions with us. Though, he really seems more at peace in the middle of the streets of Ah Hilla than inside the safety of Camp Charlie. Sometimes i wish i could just take off my body armor and sit down at a cafe and have some tea. Then maybe try to make conversation with whomever was sitting closest. Which would really be more of a game of charades.

It's funny, sometimes i feel like i'm on Tantooine. Whether i'm a stormtrooper or a rebel is still up in the air. But all the armor and crushing use of force is pointing towards stormtrooper. lol, what's really funny is that donkeys sound EXACTLY like those sand raiders. I just need more tracer rounds to complete the delusion.

PS: bah, two of my favorite radiohead cds have gone missing! also, don't try to pee inside those little plastic latrines at night without a light.

ok will get you more radiohead. you sound insane, but i guess that's to be expected, as you are insane. its been pretty hectic around here lately, we've been doing all kinds of stuff, and saying things like "man, sean would love this..." or "we should take a picture of this and send it to sean..." so obviously we miss you and think of you a lot. is there anything else you want or need? besides improved aim obviously.

i'm working on filling up that second DVD of music... i'll see if i can score some radiohead. my parents are sending you a bunch of mail that's been collecting here. so yeah.. we miss you alot like sarah said. so, keep safe, and try to keep your sanity. maybe we can get some *cough* supplies *cough* to you? ok, whatever that means... i'll send some of those shirt prints like you had before? if you want to make that shirt ;)

damn it i need new speakers for my computer.. these are blown. and it's annoying.

I miss you guys too..

Guess what? I got the day off! Smoot locked the door when he left this morning with me still inside. So i'm trapped inside with food, water, and a good book. This is great!

well, enjoy! kick your feet up and relax, sounds like you need it with all the craziness that's been going on. just remember, everyday is a day closer to coming home. but i bet you already knew that ;)

Hello. Hope you find your Radiohead CDs soon. Maybe the locals took them for musical taste expansion. Go to the cafes to find them... or not.

Take care.

before i comment: dan, i know that my commenting is all messed up, but the computer here in the lab only partially loaded the page, so i'm commenting anyways. that said:
doesn't it just rock to have a day off? to sit back and do nothing? yeah i agree with you, it sucks after about the first two hours, because you have nothing to do, and all the cool people are working. you would have had so much fun at the zoo with us yesterday, but don't worry...i'm sure there's a zoo somewhere in vegas for us to go to. stay safe and stay sane...oh yeah i got you a copy of that Songcatcher soundtrack, it was the really sad CD that had all the women bluegrass singers on it, so you too, can hear the sounds of lonliness.

i can't complain here, it's just on my journal that i can do that ;) if sean wants to complain about your lack of internet etiquette :p

bugger off
Dan: linux gamerwarraven on March 9th, 2005 04:17 am (UTC)
you can't tell me to bugger off on sean's journal, only sean can do that, you have no power here! BWAHAHAHHAAHA!

I'll bet Tantooine has fucking internet access...arrrgghhhh
Dan: sakewarraven on March 9th, 2005 11:28 pm (UTC)
i bet it would... fucking planets with internet access! damn them all!
prettierinpinkprettierinpink on March 9th, 2005 01:11 pm (UTC)
man if you were on Tantooine you'd have more than internet access, you'd have space access, which means you could fly here in, like, three minutes (ok ok a slight exaggeration, maybe twenty minutes).

and dan i can tell you to bugger off wherever i want to, you don't own the internet.

small children walk under water to ensure the coke in their space cups don't spill.
Danwarraven on March 9th, 2005 11:26 pm (UTC)
no one owns the internet! NO ONE! but people have rights to their pages, so, if sean wants to be the only one to tell people to bugger off, then he has that right, by golly!

it would be cool to have a land speeder.. that would rock.

hey sean, its your bro david. I just created a journal, http://www.livejournal.com/~david, add me to yours, unless you don't want to, then you would just be a piece of crap. Anywho, I'm looking forward to conversing with you.

Re: yo
how do you put links that actually link? it doesn't work for me
Danwarraven on March 10th, 2005 09:18 pm (UTC)
Re: yo
you use the <a href="http://www.webpage.com/blah/blah">The name of the link</a>

for instance:

<a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a> would look like this:

Google
