well, i’ve been busy to say the least. i live in a plywood hut. think summer camp, but not as well insulated. i’m starting to get a little aclimated to the cold. and yes, it IS cold.

i’m slowly building a fort out of my cubicle. i have blankets nailed up to keep heat in, and to give a little privacy. works some.

i’ve taken some nice pictures of the mountains out here. they’re pretty. i’ll post those eventually.

surprising number of girls on base. really surprising. of course, most of them are kyrgyzi or uzbeki. and no. i don’t really care about that. i watched an army game of dodgeball yesterday. talk about brutal! we’re going to form our own team and see if we can play. i may take some pictures of that too.

i’m starting to et a bit settled, so i’ll be posting more normally again. and for those of you upset about me not posting so much political stuff anymore, well, when was the last time i watched tv? when was the last time i got a news source i can write about. i’ll start again, just not right now.


  1. Oh come now, Stars & Stripes published enough stupid letters to the editor that you should find plenty of political fodder for your blog. My favorite letter-writer is a DODDS teacher in Germany, who somehow touts what will become the Democratic Party line on the topic du jure — and the irony is that this teacher, who never wore a uniform and is earning around GS-12 pay overseas (equivalent to perhaps the income of an O-4 or O-5 with the tax breaks), is often picked up as a “military source” by Daily Kos, Democratic Underground, and Smirking Chimp, whos letters give the grunt’s viewpoint.

  4. Ew. No soap? Ask your parents to send that as well as your electric blanket and space heater! Be lucky you’re a guy though! Being a girl with no soap/other unmentionables would suck a LOT.
