first pleasant memory...

besides the arrival of my under armour jacket. speaking of which, if anyone is looking for a birthday present, or lives somewhere where ti's going to be cold for awhile yet and is looking for valentine's, let me recommend the under armour derecho jacket. nice fleece jacket that's also waterproof and windproof. and somehow just works and being warm when you need it to be, and not when you don't. i'll wear it all day in the office under my uniform top and not feel hot, and then walk back to my room at night in the WAY below freezing weather and winds and not feel cold except for my exposed skin. looks good too. today it was a little warm inside and we were unloading crates of ammunition and explosives and putting them in our arms room and that got a little warm, but that was excessive.

anways, last night four or five of us were working late, trying to take care of some stuff for the teams and meet some last minute suspenses when one of the guys found some quiet riot .mp3's and played them. so the bunch of us were just laughing and joking and singing and bopping to the music while getting our work done. moments like that are just nice. when you feel like you're a part of something bigger and better than yourself.

This reminds me of that time I was in a bunker with rounds echoing in the distance and someone found a Cyndi Lauper song on his computer. Man did we she-bop. (I couldn't resist)

Glad to hear you had a momentary respite from reality, even if said respite involved shitty music from a crappy 80's hair band.

Rock on, my little soldier. ROCK ON!
