Metallurgy

I took these last weekend, but finally got them into my computer:



This is the Mjollnir (Thor's Hammer) that is currently on my dog tag chain. It's very large and includes a good-sized oath ring:

This is the Task Force FOIA unit coin. I've sent them to zeonchar, electorprince and of course the eternal americanstd. The coin symbolizes how the Ai Force, Navy and Army were all thrown under a bus:

So, today I got a pedicure for the first time in my life. The reason I got one here was because my boots are doing horrible things to my feet. I didn't find the experience really pleasant; the rasping and scraping of my calluses and toenails was the tactile equivalent of fingernails on a blackboard, but I'm VERY pleased with the result. The calluses on the outside of my big toes were distracting even to me. Now I have feet, not horrors. Didn't get polish of course, but my feet look nice and feel better.

There was a very large black man in ACUs getting HIS feet done at the same time. Feet support all our weight all our lives and we need to respect them.

I have word now on current conditions in Bagram and they are NOT encouraging. CPT S has decided to go with us, and she and I sat there horrified as we found out we'll be living in tents, not B-huts and that the place is so overflowing with people that showers often are not available. Thank god there are six DFACs: the only thing to make this more delightful would be the only food being MREs.

Seriously, that's what the coin symbolizes. I didn't make that up.
