Merry Christmas Mates!

A Pirate's Night Before Christmas by Bob Eldridge

'Twas the night 'afore Christmas and all cross the deck,
only helmsman was stirring, making sure we don't wreck.
Empty chests lay by each seaman's night rapture,
in hopes they'd be filled by another rich capture.
The crew were all groggy and snug in their bunks,
dreaming of booty to fill their sea trunks.
As Captain, I too wished for something to steal,
just forty winks 'fore my turn at the wheel
when just off my port bow I heard such a splash,
straight to the porthole I flew in a flash,
clutching saber and pistol and lit cannon match,
I raced up the gangway, threw open the hatch.
Full moon and clear sky lit up the bright sea,
still I couldn't believe what I spied before me.
Come aside was a skiff what had struck her red sails,
she was heaving to, towed by eight tiny whales!
With a little old skipper so lively and quick,
I knew straight away it was Captain Nick!
At some twenty knots his fishes they came,…

New to the Owlery: Shelly

Welcome Shelly! A "YooHoo" by Aurora, picked up from the Shell Factory in N. Fort Myers, FL.
So Inglourious Basterds was awesome. Land of the Lost was badly funny (tho a total affront to the show I grew up on.) Lazy day was lazy!

Florida, Day 2.

Slept sooo long. I must have passed out around 10pm. I only woke up once, to some odd night bird that sounded like a woman wailing. I almost woke Hubby up so he could tell me I was nuts and just go back to sleep. When I did finally get back to sleep I slept off and on til about 7am when Shane was on his way home. (Sexy man let me sleep while he went to work his big and strong muscles.) He ALSO then made me breakfast. Hmm, maybe I should soak up this bein sick :PWe picked up Granma Irma and ran an errand or two. I love runnin her around: she's sweet and so funny! Very quick on the draw. We stopped off to see Hubby's old boss on Sanibel Island (which costs 6bucks just to cross the bridge.)(P) The Ding Darling Refuge was wonderful. We didn't get to see any alligators, but there were so many birds! Got pictures of fish, a turtle, spiders, and lizards. Was beautiful!Irma says she has Mexican Ducks. When asked to explain she says "First day one duck comes, and I feed him. N…

Road Trip: Pro-Life Billboards

So 3 times since the FL state-line I've seen this billboard w/a fetus quoting "My heart's beating 18 days after conception." Raising a skeptical eyebrow I had to look it up. According to SCIENCE those cells aren't a fetus til the 9th week after fertilization (13th week if you count the 4weeks prior; which I assume is ovulation etc.)9weeks. Waaaay longer than 18 days. The heart is present at the 11th week, but only minimally functional (it beats for Practice more than survival.)SO. Be ProLife all you like, but for criminitely get your facts straight so you don't look so stupid.And less billboards plex. They distract from my scenery.

Humanity Today...

Me (14:22): Guy died yesterday... Of a sprained knee. Well, had a knee injury 8months ago. But @550lbs he couldn't get out his recliner. EMTs took him to Hosp, covered in
Me (14:26): Decubitis & waste. Wife said he slept &defecated in the chair, & she cleaned it everyday. How do you clean waste out of a LayZBoy?CNN says a couple was arrested of child abuse for tying down and beating "with closed fists and wires etc" their daughter. They did this, because they were shamed by her. The lil tart (of 8 years old) had allowed herself to be lured to a shed and raped by four boys no older than 14, one of the nights they'd locked her out of the apartment and left her begging for food from the neighbors.

Shaniya Davis: My 2Cents.

Me (16:14): More news on 5yo girl that was taken: Raped & asphyxiated the day she went missing (Nov10). Same bs from family "He couldnt!" "She's never!" blah blah. Also... Granma Davis says her daughters not into drugs and prostitution! But NC State Spokewoman says Davis has been arrested of both before!Why I hate family's proclamations of innocense: "He's always been a good uncle!" "She's never abused them before!" Accordin to your Trailer-Park-University Psych Degree a person must be a psycho from birth so you can catch them young right? Murderers torture cats, and rapists assault younger siblings first? This Davis girl's rapist/murderer's sister claims he's always been a good uncle! He went to the hospital with an armload of baby stuff for his nieces. So, just because he didn't molest YOUR children- that you know of- he couldn't POSSIBLY have done it to anyone else!

So this link that visually assaulted me while I was feeding my cute lil Fishville fish caused me to become apathetically enraged. Enraged because this doctor (who's from Canada btw, check the awesome Maple Leaf pin) is blathering on about HIS opinion, how if all the OTHER doctors were as caring as HE, we'd ALL noticed this problem 40 years ago. What problem? The problem that some kinda get adverse reactions to Vacs? Let's say 1/100,000 kids get an adverse reaction to a vaccination, does that mean we just shouldn't vaccinate at all? Sure, if you don't mind small pox. BTW, here's a picture of smallpox and what it does to your child.

I feel my samples are contaminated with Fu2- ions.

(tw) I'm apparently supposed to know "SMT" is REALLY "SIM". Tho SIM is nowhere in the book. Studied all f'ing day yesterday, 4a 78%. FU & ur Dimethyl a napthylamine.

I feel my samples are contaminated with Fu2- ions.So the question was: "What does the SIM test for?" Why, I dunno! I go get my grade.. The "Sulfur Indole MotilityTest (SIM)" tests for Motility & H2S. Ok, cept the book says the Sulfur Motility Test.. Note the lack of (SIM) anywhere. I ask about it, and he says "Well its right there! Sulfur Motility!" Nu uh... Show me "Sulfur Indole Motility (SIM).. Oh you can't? Because its NOT THERE! I'm supposed to know that 3 letters not in the book anywhere mean the Sulfur Motility Test? SMT... SIM... Yea... I get that. Not.

In the study hall, 5 boys sat around eating, joking around. Lady janitor comes by, always friendly. Jokes with them awhile. Smiling, she leaves to go 'feed her dogs'. They joke "Need someone to lift that heavy dogfood bag?" How caveman :P She declines, and is gone. Then, they become awful
Barely around the corner and they give "Hey she only gave 3 noes, can we hand them out accordingly?" Rabid testosterone foaming of the mouth ensues, one jumps around doing that crappy crotch-grabbing thing. The conversation ends with "Shoot, rest of ya'll can just watch."How does an amicable convo with a woman who talks about her son telling her she can't call boys' stuff "cute" erupt into five retards orating a gang bang in the study hall? For the love of Pete* are all men so disgusting, or just a certain demographic. Ugh...

090922 Lil Agitated

So.. Because you don't want the Critter Sitter to see the wrecked house that you've "had no motivation to clean" this week/weekend you want me to call her off, and come home on the only three hours of solid study time I have before my Anatomy & Physiology exam tomorrow (which I have yet to get more than an hour on), to walk the dog (which is the Reason I get no decent study time @home and hole up at the school...)And the only way I can avoid YOUR mortification.. Though its an older lady who reflects the house's state on Me, the Wife, is for me to give up the hour I have before Micro (to review for our everyday quiz) to run through the house doing in an hour what you didn't do in the four days I was working 37hrs AND going to school./deep breath/ I, am a little aggitated.~WeyrCat's Treo

Woke up, let Rook out, screamed out of the house. Its not that I need Hubby to wake me, its that I have so little motivation when he's in the field. Did clean the house a wee bit yesterday, and will more after school. Good LORD than man leaves a mess the weekend before the field. "Full sink & an empty fridge." :PMicro Lab was.. Uneventful enough to annoy me. My first foray into Gram Staining resulted in much Pink, not much purple, and the friggin prof won't even tell me what I did incorrectly because I failed to complete the superflous step of drawing a sharpie circle on the slide before placing it on the scope.

Just a quick update; I know I haven't been in to tag/organize the posts I've put up recently.. school has been really taking up my time :)Yesterday Hubby and I went down to the PetSmart to check out the Kitties. We keep going, falling for one, saying we'll go back the next day without Rook (since usually when we go to the PetSmart we bring the obnoxious monster so she can spaz out.. a real treat for her.) The twice we did that we didn't go back *It's ok, I know both Mozart and Bridghid found good homes.*Last night we went, and surprisingly, both of the kitties we really liked were Torties. One, a regular Tortie, she was blackish with orangey marks, and the other was a weird grey with orangey marks. I've never seen a Tortie that was grey. Listed as a "Diluted Tortie" which, though I haven't looked yet, I'm pretty sure means "Mutt, with Tortie markings" :PShe's a sweetie, born in March. Came spayed, with all her shots good through …

tags: edumacationDon't you hate when you sit down at an empty table to quietly study.. and someone comes and sits down next to you. Quiet at first, but then a /friend/ of theirs shows up. Soon they're gabbing and laughing, comPLETELY oblivious that YOU, and your 2 textbooks, highlights, notebook, and notecards are trying to study. Nah.. can't be bothering you at all.Neat: Microbiology, p11. "When the inhabitants of an entire village became ill, people often blamed the disease on demons appearing as foul odors from sewage or on poisonous vaops from swamps.

//There's something rather post-apocalyptic about the Honeycutt gate. The empty train tracks outside the gate sit unused, with rotting wood planks red with rust from the rails.The road into post is lined with quiet motor pools; the paint on the old generators and canvas-covered humvees slowly fading in the midday sun. Crows caw from the sagging powerlines attached to bleached and leaning wooden telephone poles still standing from the 1970s. The shredding black tarpaline blows quietly, in a breeze seen but not felt, as it clings to the red-rusted barbed-wire fencing. The old water tower, taller even than the stacks of empty sheet-metal boxcars, shows deep cuts of iron-oxide through its orangey-red checked paint job. If it weren't for the occasional car coming through the gate, you would think the only sounds left in the entire world were the slow scraping of a chain on a red-bricked building's tall, thin, smokestack; and the cawing of that crow. As the sun sets and the shad…

It seemed like it would be a generally quiet day. I'm so tired as I type this, on my last break, so pardon.First there was the SSgt who made his first appearance on the other side of the concrete barrier (having been turned around) while I was in the Pit with Masse. He stopped, acted like he wanted to turn around at the House *main guardshack* but we always direct them to keep going because usually they need to be processed. He hits the gas and burns down the freeway. completely missing the proper entrance and assumingly went all the way down to the dirt road turn around before finally coming back up to us. He waits in Masse's lane, then, impatient, crawls over to my (center) lane. He has to wait til I'm done with the car I'm currently processing. Then, geared for an angry person, direct his SUV to pull forward he does, jumping out of his vehicle almost immediately with two IDs in his hand. He starts ranting in a loud voice about the guy in the back seat having no ID,…

090730 Ill, gym

So yesterday I spent from about 1600 feeling nauseous. Tried popping Claritin for the stuffed sinus, a 325mg Tylonol & 200mg Caffeine for the headache, but was motion sick on the way to the gym.Got through
• 1/20 5lb-e Dumbbell Squat Shoulderpresses and
• 1/10 5lb-e Dumbbell Rear Lunge &Bicep Curls
before my quads felt like bricks. I spent the rest of our time there on the stairs: dizzy & trying not to feel vomitous. Got home, tried to play some XBox w/Hubby, til he put me to bed for an hour. I didn't really sleep, just drifted. I think I was under for about 10-15m. We watched a movie & slept.Today I feel so much better. Still under the weather, but its a drizzle instead of a downpour.

Me (14:59): Need moleskin on these collars I think. Chafing :(Me (16:42): 1640-1710 between the Summer Jam and the Airman's Wedding, today sucks.
-The best was a chick with long brown hair, very tan skin, wearing a Hot Pink with white polka dots, Tutu-bell strapless dress coming to above mid-thigh, and 5" Hot Pink stiletto, open-toe, patent pumps. To a WEDDING? She looked like the Hooker PromDate from Hell! 1745: When kids come in looking barely old enough to drive I ask them for their driver's license. Sometimes, this happens: Kid comes in with his dependent card and a friend with a DL. I ask the kid for his DL and he says he doesn't have one.
"With you?"
"That's all I got."
"You don't have a driver's license at all?"
"No, cuz I have that."
"This is NOT a driver's license. This does not allow you to drive anywhere in the United States, or on Post. Why didn't you have the guy with the driver's license dri…

090714 WackenBloggin Elantras & Stalker.

This point is so boring. We stand here on opposite corners making sure vehicles don't come off the Blvd (we're not a checkpoint, and only allow EMS and In Service Bragg MPs through). People have various ways to pass the time. During the winter months I do light PT. You'll see me standing there doing calf raises, inclined pushups against the bollards, stretches. It's WAY too hot to do that in the summer! So to keep from singing "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt" over and over as I've been doing, and off-handedly counting the Elantras that go by, I've instituted a Scavanger Hunt. Today's Hunt: Elantras with the body style of Mine (2007). I have no way of knowing which are repeat cars mind you.Currently:
7blue. 7charcoal, 6silver. 3black. 2tan. 1purple. 1red.
Plus one uncounted silver driven by Hubby.Other crap:
I tend to have guys ask for my number, ring or not. Its just a female thing, it happens to all of us. Captive audience you might say. Why, tod…

090713 WSI

This one we get all the time when people recognize us: "Weren't you at the other point yesterday?"
There are 13 entry point to Fort Bragg.Complimentary Insult: "Aren't you too cute to work here? You don't look tough at all!" O_oThis happens a lot actually: Short, fat, Army wife drives through the gate with her three rugrats in the backseat; hands me her spouse ID card. I also get the driver's license for the guy in the passenger seat: a NC DL. After checking the name of her sponsor on her Spouse card, and the name on his ID, he is decidedly NOT her husband. What makes this one so special, is that as she drives away, there's one of those yellow ribbon magnets on the butt of her car stating "Proud Army Wife." Dear lord.I also tend to go window shopping while I work. Things I saw today that I wanted to check out:
Purple plaid tank top from Charlotte Russe.
Purple feather-print wallet from Forever21
A sunken ship in Florida called the Atosh (w…

WSI 090609 12hrs on Randolph...

So last night, on my Wednesday off, LT calls me to ask if I want more hours. I've already got 44 (4 automatic OT hours), and the thought of adding 8 more onto that sounds pretty nice. I throw a cursory "What do you think Husband?" at Hubby and agree. Banter back and forth, and it works out that I could also snag the 4 hours AFTER that if I want them. I say sure, and LT calls (as I'm TRYIN to be in bed at 11pm) to tell me I've got the whole 12hr shift. Hooray!!!....wait... why do I do that?So this morning I woke up, had slept like crud (I hate that), and dragged myself off to school (almost late!) to give my final presentation in Computer Information Systems 113 (last day of class). Technical difficulties: I left the thumb drive with the presentation still plugged into my computer at home! No worries... I emailed it to my partner so she could review her lines. So I inform the sit-in-prof that I have to DL the file first. Uh-oh... GMail won't let us DL.. some s…

090606 NonSmoker's Perspective

I grew up with it.
When I was seven I accidently dumped a bag of puffed cheetos on the floorboard of the car. I scooped them all back into the back and continued munching. I got a very chewy one and pulled it out, waiting for a street light. It was a cigarette butt. I threw up all over myself, the back of the car, the cheetos. I've never smoked. Never tried it. Never wanted to. Was never tempted.People'd ask me in High School if I had a lighter, if I smoked. My clothes reeked of it.
I went to Boot Camp and people were dying for one, dreaming of when they could have their first one again. I was told I ran like a smoker.People drive up to my gate and blow it in my face. The smoke rolls out of their car. They tap their ashes on my boots. They throw their butts out the window in the street, in my lane.I take a break back at the guard shack, which inside and out smells like the cigarette break the last guard took.I smell it on my coworkers when load up, and download. I get in the ca…

July 3 ownzors July 4

So we knew I wasn't going to get time at home on July 4... it's the WORST holiday on Fort Bragg because everyone and their brother comes out for the 25minute fireworks show. Hubby and I decided to spend our mutual day off July 3 celebrating instead!I bought him a little grill, just a little camp grill really, and we threw the camp chairs outside and ate the most delicious babyback ribs ever! I almost cried when I found out I'd left out my last three and wouldn't get them for leftovers. We had a few delicious beers, and Rook went nuts with the little sticks in the backyard. We set up the tent in the living room (camping with AC!!) and had us a lil camping StayCation!This morning we cleaned up the mess we made last night (ok, Hubby cleaned up and let me sleep in! What a hunk!) I came to work at the Randolph gate and all hell broke loose. First I had a guy roll up to the ID lane and joke that he was gonna 'just blow on by'. I laughed at him and told him he wouldn&…

WSI New Whale Award, & "No Smoking, we have our Own!"

So today our previous Whale Award Winner (aka Fat Army Spouse) of BF-326 was crushes by a newcomer: WF-330 on All American!! I think the scariest thing is that everyone lies on their ID, so they MUST weigh more than that in actuality... HOW is that POSSIBLE?As per No Smoking, We Have our Own, feast your eyes upon the masks handed out by the LT tonight (and my lil makeshift sign). On Post they Control burn the underbrush in order to lessen the likelyhood of actual forest fires. This doesn't seem to stop the general public (or soldiers) from warning us to call the fire deptartment... because there seems to be a FIRE on Post!! Tonight after my regular shift ended they starter a burn somewhere near All American freeway entrance. It started out ok, like they do, until people driving by were telling us they felt sorry for us. The LT swung by to hand out masks (boy I wish I'd had one that day on Yadkin when I thought I was going to throw up from smoke inhalation!) They itch fiercely …
