I am home.

I was bussed to Atlanta where I briefly got to meet with android_raptor because A. nobody knew who could give her a pass to go with me to the gate and B. my flight loaded almost immediately anyway.

Flight was uneventful. I watched "The Last Station" about the end of Leonid Tolstoy's life, but was unmoved by it because it was so British and so not Russian. It was actually a direct flight though, which I believe was only because I was redeploying. I got in before 1900, which meant that we were able to go to my first restaurant of choice, Panda Inn at Horton Plaza. My party included zare_k, valdelane, letter_d, Ryan, Ma'am, and of course the eternal americanstd.

Mei-Mei doesn't seem pleased at all to see me, probably because in her little furry mind I'm poaching her Daddy.

Busy days ahead, starting with some housework and watching lots of hulu.com with Mei-Mei once she remembers who I am. Also joining the VFW, medical appointments at the VA, and as always, baking bread. We also have to get the Saturn out of deployment storage; Steve's been driving his late father's truck. My own vehicle, finally.

Have fun at the VA. You will probably be the youngest one there (=

You're still too young for the Vietnam and Korean War vets that were there 2 years ago when I had to make use of the VA Clinic...

You'll be seeing some pretty old dudes there.

Welcome back, Vet!

I'm glad that people were able to make it to welcome you home. I just started summer school so I am pretty busy until August.

Yeah, seeing the VA right away is good. Also, see dental while you can. VFW for the win, also.
