At Benning

Hot as blazes here, with humidity to boot.  Remind me to never move to Georgia.

Today we were measured for our new ACUs (they have special fire retardant ones for downrange) and did a lot of paperwork.  Tomorrow I'm not looking forward to as it's shots day and I really don't want that smallpox vaccine.

IMPORTANT thing to know is that I leave on Friday.

Roommates do not talk on cell phones all night.  Roommates are officers and act as adults.  I love it.

Internet access is sketchy, but I'll do what I can.  Love to you all.

I'm glad you made it there safely. I'm sorry you have to go through the small pox shot/vaccine tomorrow. :( That is one experience I never got to have, much thanks to my eczema. (My roommate actually got out of it on one of her deployments, too, since she lived with me.)

ETA: Have fun at The Land That God Forgot!

Yaaay for actual grownups (who'd'a thunk it could be possible) for roommates.

Can you close your eyes for the shot (or is it a principle-based objection)?

Anyway, time for MOAR hugz!

Principle-based. I'm very against smallpox vaccines for adults and anthrax vaccines for anyone except sheep and wool handlers.

Good to hear from you!

think I was vaccinated for smallpox, but I don't remember it, since I was just a little squirt.

Let me guess - ACU does not stand for Air Conditioning Unit?

Good deal with the adult roomies. :)
Take care; will be following your posts and reminding the Guy Upstairs to keep an eye out for you. [insert Odin joke here]

Do I see another heathen?

As I left, Steve said Thor would protect me. I still need to order some mjollnirs for the two of us.

Well, I'm sure some of the more wild-eyed Protestants think Catholics are backsliding heathen, so...maybe? Definitely not Asatru, just making the Odin joke because it seemed to fit. Especially after re-reading American Gods not too long ago.

I love me some vaccines. We've had SRPers all over the place all month, and I love walking past the "shot room" and looking at all the fear in those eyes.

With me it's that I don't like putting poison in my body, and as far as I'm concerned that's what these vaccines are.

Stay tuned for chapter 3 of "Another Man's Son". It's almost finished.

But now....laundry.

... yeah, there's a reason I long to move back to Tacoma every summer.
