"Kerry is so very....." Full of Shit

As if it wasn't clear for 30 something years exactly what this guy thinks of our troops. Blown joke or no, he told on himself.

Out of Office Reply

I'll be out of the loop until mid- May or so. Somebody has to train to respond to the Zombie threat and I'm just the guy to do it.

Technology Is Not Progress

BEIJING, Feb. 7 -- The woman who received the world's first partial face transplant revealed her new features to a worldwide audience yesterday and said, "I have a face like everyone else."

Isabelle Dinoire, her speech heavily slurred and difficult to understand, told her first news conference since November's surgery how she was disfigured by a dog bite last year and thanked the family of the donor who gave her new lips, a chin and nose.

Is this a Zombie sighting!? This lady needs to get her money back and hire an attorney. This is the creepiest thing I've ever seen.

Not in Kansas Anymore

So long US Army. Hello some other job. I believe it would be best to keep the new title to myself to avoid ever being mistaken as a spokesman for anything other than myself.

I must say that the culture shock is a little more pronounced than I would have thought. After 13 years in the service, I was quite comfortable as far as knowing what to expect from people and the organization. What I had forgotten was how uncomfortable I am dealing with "civilians" (for lack of a better term).

Example: Today my fellow classmates had a get- together for lunch at some place for the Chinese New Year. I don't know what the Chinese New Year is and don't really care. The social organizers printed out little Chinese horoscope things describing what your personality should be based on what year you were born. (I was born in the year of the Cock- or Rooster). I am sure that this is a perfectly normal thing, but I couldn't help feeling immediately anxious to either leave or start drinking. As it was before noon on Sunday, I politely ate and tried to speak as little as possible outside typical "getting to know you" type conversation. This was to avoid entering any conversation where my obnoxious and opinionated personality would shine through.

I know this is something which I will need to get over. Luckily, everyone seems very nice so far and I will eventually be back in my element. I am not completely socially inept, but close (as I'm sure my friends will vouch for).

For the time being, I'll quit bitching and go with the flow. Happy Fuckin' Chinese New Year.
