Lost track of time. My squad is working the 1300 to 0100 shift at the detention center. We still have all our other duties as well, so there isn't much time for anything else. My favorite part of the day is going to midnight chow with my buddies and just relaxing. Oddly enough, the weather here has found a way to make it worse. The wind shifted from east to west and is blowing from the gulf (not far away). Phew, talk about humid. I drink 5 of those 1.5 liter water bottles during work. I don't think i've been thirsty in months. It's more like a drink or die kind of thing.

The strangest thing happened last night. I had the best dream of my entire life. I went to the PX and bought a new notebook for the sole purpose of remembering the dream. It was about love.

Has anyone noticed that a lot of posts these days start out as "sorry, i was busy" or "things are crazy"? The worst part is that it's true. Are we all being buried in life? Maybe a few have found a nice niche to hide away in. Lately my dreams have become my personal never-never-land. I often think about what my life will become after this. I have decided not to re-enlist because it would be counter-productive to my goals. Though the thought of complete seperation from the military makes me feel strange. So many of the things i accel in are only useful in a military function. But i will adapt and overcome, drink water and drive on. Forge out a new existance for myself. Start a new adventure.

These days i'm glad my memory is so terrible. I don't think i would be the same person otherwise. Maybe that's what makes me.. me?

gotta go, times up.

G'night. Love you

*angelic song*
yes! total proof that you're ok, for the most part. seeing that you still love sleep as much as ever just shows us that you're still mostly the same sean. the one that could fall asleep under a pool table in the middle of the day.

oh.. and when you come back, i've been doing some plotting.. bwahahahaha. it involves linux, and those really awesome looking laptops(ok, maybe only awesome looking to me) from Hackers.

well, i'm off to go do some more bidding on ebay

*evil laughter*

Good to see you're back and alright. :)

Dreams are a good escape from everyday/or not so everyday life.

Good to see you!
Hey, good to see your post. Hang in there!

E was here from Germany for couple weeks. Had nice time. Went to uncle S. for 4th July. Nice. Interesting fireworks.... early in the show he had a small one shot tube (he doesn't nail those tubes down) fall over and fired right at the crowd. Should have seen all those folks MOVE (I was crouching down talking to G'ma and took good cover behind her -- smile.) No one got hurt. Just a couple small cinder burns on clothes except for Aunt L (my sister) who got a hot ash in the eye. As she was rolling on the ground saying that her eyes were burning someone threw their drink in her face -- good move. She says that was the best use of a Margurita she'd ever seen. She was fine, though she stayed in the garage for the rest of the fire works :) Actually I don't think anyone sat solid in their seat the rest of the show :)

Anyway, thought you might enjoy some interesting 'humor' from home -- especially since you know what a crazy scene those 4th of July parties can be!! You can just picture it right? Ahhh... good for a smile.

ly, M

Re: Good to see you!
hahah.. I think the universe is after Aunt L. She is forever getting rained on or attacked by fireworks.

The only problem is when you start having trouble telling dreams apart from reality. Like those damn clowns, I know there after me! But that aside, you know when your heading back stateside yet?(Your memories not the only one thats bad)

well the fact that you were able to lose track of time is telling that you're the same person as before. i've been so damn busy lately doing nothing that i can't help but be sleepy. my dad and mikey are watching platoon, and i'm doing my damndest not to (i hate war movies).

well don't be falling asleep too much, and remember to drink up or die. and if its any consolation its super humid here too, like the heat index is 104 degrees today.-
