Day 04 – What you ate today, in great detail

Not a very exciting one today, huh?

Oh well, here it goes:

I had a leftover turkey sandwich from Potbelly's. It had mayo, mustard, lettuce, and pickles on it. I washed it all down with a can of Coke. I normally prefer Pepsi, but I can take Coke from the chow hall free of charge, so I try not to be picky.

I also had a chocolate glazed donut from Dunkin Donuts. I washed that down with some 2% milk.

That is all.

Hey strangers.

I don't update this thing as often as I used to, but I promise I am still around.

I hope all of you are well.

Because what I really need is to watch more TV

Jun. 10th, 2010 | 11:25 pm

Hey kids. Long time no see.

I've immersed myself in even more television lately.

I spent the last few months watching Criminal Minds season 1 - 4. I'm trying to make my way through season 5, the most current season, but downloads are going a bit slow.

I also started watching Breaking Bad (3 episodes so far) and it looks promising but at the same time I feel like I could get really mad at the main character.

And despite my attempts to avoid it, I've given Doctor Who another try. I watched the first 3 episodes a few years ago and it didn't really take, but I've re-watched the first two and I like it a lot more now. But I can't for the life of me explain why. Oh well.

And after all of this madness subsides I am going to watch The Wire.



Nerds FTW.


P.S. Anyone seen Brit lately?

It took all the coke in town to bring down Dennis Brown

Well, I'm not dead. But I am less and less inclined to update LJ. You'll have more success keeping up with my thrilling life on Facebook, if so inclined.

January - I was on leave for the first 10 days of January, and I spent them in Cleveland. I chillaxed and did as little as physically possible. It was awesome. I also turned 27. Man am I old. I spent a day in Bowling Green visiting with my old grad school chums. We got drank too many margaritas and played rock band. I miss them.

February - In the beginning of February we got bent over a table and ass raped by mother nature. We got 35 inches of snow, followed by 20 inches 3 days later. It meant that we were trapped in our barracks for a few days, but it also meant that at the age of 27 years old, I had 6 snow days. I guess all it takes to bring the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, and U.S. Military to a screeching halt is some snow. People flipped their shit over it. Valentines weekend my dad flew out to me and we then drove up to Atlantic City. My uncle lives up there and we spent 2 days gambling. I didn't loose too much money and got to spend some time with my dad. Plus, I love gambling. It was a good weekend. On Monday (Feb 22) my brother's wife had a baby. Kevin Thomas, so Friday (yesterday) I braved 2 competing snowstorms and drove to Cleveland to see him. He is quite a cutie pie. But now I have to drive back through snow. At least I look like a loving and caring aunt.

That pretty much sums up my past 2 months. I hope all of you are doing ok.

Street drug dealers had taken control of several city blocks

Hola amigos. Random thoughts ahead.

+ I emailed my friend a while back. I haven't heard from him in over a year (though I was in boot camp/MCT and he was in Qatar for a good chunk of it), and I wanted to touch base, but he hasn't responded. Now I am worried and/or concerned.

+ Friday is the MCSB Co. B Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Its a big, big deal, and pictures are sure to follow. I'm looking forward to it. I spent the last birthday at boot camp, which I would imagine is significantly less fun.

+ I've now been in the Marine Corps over 1 year.

+ I have duty Saturday, which I don't mind at all. Get a few books and some DVD's from Blockbuster and 24 hours of duty just flies by.

+ I've been going to the gym a lot lately and my hips have yet to explode in protest. About damn time they heal.

+ I am going back to Cleveland for Thanksgiving and I can not wait. I miss my puppies so much. Really I just want to see them and eat turkey, and the visiting the family is secondary. :) In all honesty, I missed most of the major holidays last year and it'll be good to re-connect with all the tradition I wasn't around for. And pie. It'll be good to eat pie again.

+ While in Cleveland I'm going to go on a downloading spree. My wifi connection that I'm picking up off of some random stranger is tenuous at best, and does not allow for the downloading of anything. There are a number of shows I'd like to catch up on (Weeds, Friday Night Lights). I may or may not have made a list.

+ Barbara Kingsolver's new book came out yesterday. She wrote The Poisonwood Bible which is tied as my #1 book of all time. I was going to wait for paperback, but Borders kindly sent me a 40% off coupon, so I'm going to pick it up tomorrow.

+ I'm currently reading The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell which is hilariously snarky and historically informative and I suggest it to anyone who might be into snark/history/or pilgrims.

+ I'm in the middle of taking a month long networking class off base. Two weeks ago I got word from SSGT when he said 'Monday morning you are starting a class.' I don't know much about networking and am only there because they needed to fill seats, but whatever. So far it is incredibly boring and filled with binary. None of it is classified information though, so I can immediately call my brother and bitch to him about what we are learning. That is a significantly harder prospect when one is taught something you can't talk about with people who aren't 'need to know.'

+ TV shows are going great. I watched V last night. It was alright. Had some boring moments, but it was only an hour long show, so I'll tune in again next week. I wish they hadn't shown the 'this season on V' promo during the end credits though because it totally ruined one character not being dead. Lame, ABC. Lame. I am also looking forward to the return of Fringe and Bones now that the World Series is over (fucking yankees).

+ I think that is it.

[edited because 'maked' isn't a word]

Thursday = TV

"A red-headed boy peed on her eye?" might be the best line of any show ever.

Go baby go

I'm glad tv season is in full swing. NCIS was tonight, and my opinion of it was similar to my opinion of last nights How I Met Your Mother; Eh, could have been better, could have been worse On NCIS I didn't care for the re-cap feel of the episode, but DiNozzo had some great lines so it was alright. And with HIMYM it wasn't as hilariously funny as it can be. Perhaps my high expectations from the show for comedic genius are getting in the way of enjoyment.

Tomorrow is Glee and Top Chef.

Welcome to TV Dorkdom, population: me.

Wait, there's not going to be a shotgun at the wedding?

Sep. 19th, 2009 | 09:07 pm

I was going to type up this big long post talking about TV. But I got half way through it and thought better of it, so to sum it up:

-Yay return of tv.

-Glee is the only new show I'll be watching.

-Fringe is my favorite show of the moment.

I really didn't need to know that

Sep. 9th, 2009 | 10:02 pm

I have duty on Saturday, which is fine with me, as I planned on spending the entire day watching football. Now I just have to do it while in uniform.

Tennessee vs. UCLA (go Vols)
Notre Dame vs. Michigan (go Irish)
Ohio State vs. USC (go Bucks)

Quite a day, huh?

There is absolutely nothing else going on in my life besides that.
