Last day at Fort H.

It was with some sadness that I packed up and left my little apartment. It's been a happy little nest for two weeks.

I did have a talk with SGT Convert. I explained that he really needed to be careful what he was talking about during work hours. I said I wasn't going to debate same-sex marriage with him, but since now DADT has been dead for three years, there could be soldiers with same-sex partners around, and he'd just insulted them with his comments.

"Replace the word "gay" with "black", I told him.

He hadn't thought of that.

I assured him I would always rather talk to someone directly than go behind their back to file an EO complaint. And yes, he was opening himself to that. I think he was suitably chastened; I hope so.

We briefly went into a conversation about the classical view of the Virtues and living according to them and that was that.

I drove home without incident, and came home to spouse, cats, and some wresting. The WWE network is $9.99/month and we get our money's worth out of that.

Today I had a day to myself as Steve went off to a shooting match, where he did better than he'd hoped. One of the competitors was in his 90s, and Steve compared him to Yoda, hobbling on his cane, pulling out his lightsaber, kicking ass, then picking up his cane to hobble away. That is an inspiration.

Since my vegan Vietnamese food was subpar Wednesday night, I asked Steve if we could go to Miss Saigon. My vegan rolls on Wednesday were filled with fried tofu and rice noodles, but not cilantro, shredded carrot, shredded cucumber, mint, and all the other things that should have given them flavour. My entree was supposed to be vegan rice noodles but the fried tofu was oil, the rice noodles were barely present, and most of the vegetables were sliced celery, and I LOATHE celery.

Miss Saigon gave us nice vegetable-filled fresh rolls, a delicious shrimp curry and for me, beef, chicken and shrimp with carrots and broccoli in a nest of fried noodles. Yes, we're glad to have Miss Saigon near us.

We need to rest up tonight, because we are going to one of the two county fairs going on these two weeks in our area.

I'm glad you got a chance to speak with him. Hopefully he took it to heart.

Huh, sounds like you did him a solid, both personally and professionally.

There's a Vietnamese place nearby that's pretty good. I need to learn how to make a decent pho. There's a good H-Mart, but it's pretty far. (So not someplace we can just pop out to without some planning, since they're always packed.)
