Just a bunch of babel.

So, just some random updates as to what I've been up to. :)

We'll start with work. Yuck. We have a new civilian contractor working there now. Handling our computer problems (as far as hardware and uptime and stuff). He's pretty cool, and I've been working closely with him on getting some of our computer issues resolved. Funny thing, I had to tell the network guy how to configure PHP. He's _PAID_ to administer a web server and _I_ was the only one who knew how to fix said web server. How sad.

Now, we also have a fairly new commander. For the last several years we have ran a website that was inspired by "The Onion", and provided the intelligence community with a bit of a break fromt he drollery of their lives. We take events that happen around the world and make fun of them. It's what we do. We're very good at it. It is, by no means, the only thing we do, it's just one that a lot of people appreciate. Well, our new commander apparently didn't like this idea, as yesterday when I walked into the office I was ordered to delete every funny article we had written! Every one of them! How could she! She's turnning the squadron into even more of a fasciast regime!

I went to PT this morning at 7. Out in the cold muddy field doing pushups and situps, getting bitten by bugs that are never there after you get the chance to smack at them. All the while being told, "Oh come on, you can do better than that. Give it your all." Uhmn, I'm sorry, I can't do 100 pushups yet, when my arms will no longer lift me off the ground and I stop, it absolutely does not mean that I am not trying you dicks! Grr.

On to other thigns. I got the books I wanted. :D They are VERY nice. Big huge improvements on the original stuff.

I also picked up the Jump to Lightspeed expansion for Star Wars Galaxies. It's actually pretty cool. I am an Imperial pilot now, so I have a TIE fighter that is all mine, and I can go flying around in it, shooting x-wings. :D They did a pretty good job on it. :)

Now, the only thing I have to do is figure out what in the world I want to eat for dinner!
