Labour Day Monday

I am not looking forward to ALC (what used to be BNCOC) at all. This is the school that is needed for my next Army promotion. It's from October 19 to November 23, and supposed to be super-stressful. I was reading the packing list and even got some packing done today, but I'm already depressed and anxious about it. I need to buy more PT shorts and one pair of PT pants, and I may need to purchase more uniform items too. Of course, after this school I won't need them again for years, if at all. At least we all have our own apartments at the Residence Inn for this ordeal; that means a lot, especially if we're only going to be sleeping four hours a night.

My purple bike is up and running, and I took a short ride today. I am going to see if I can go to the mailbox tomorrow, since that's a 10 mile round trip and should be a good workout. Soft sand is a challenge to ride in, but it's a beach bike and meant to deal with such. The key is to keep moving, just pedal a little slower.

I saw the movie "Elysium" which I got off Netflix. Steve got bored and annoyed with the obvious propaganda within the film and left about halfway through. I finished, but it ended with all the action-movie tropes one can expect. I feel sometimes that Americans should not make SF films.

I know, but the story had Hollywood pawprints all over it. His first film was "District 9", which was breathtaking.

Agree, Elysium wasn't that great, unfortunately. District 9 was fantastic.

Where is ALC? Anywhere remotely close to New England?

Nope, it's in Charlottesville, VA.
