Just got back from a very relaxing, perhaps not needed, but certainly appreciated week of leave. Indra and I hopped on a plane to attend her sister's wedding and found ourselves on a beach for about 5 days. Not bad. Beats Iraq, beats Afghanistan, certainly beats 29 Palms, and definitely has a leg up on Pendleton. I'll post some pics when I can.
Otherwise, I'm pretty pleased that I didn't have the chance to fill out an NCAA tourney bracket, my obvious choice for the National Champion managed a loss to Xavier in round two... that more or less ruined an afternoon of pina coladas for me.
What else... oh yeah, I am once again chasing my sergeant promotion. I'd rather not talk about it, but lets just say the cutting score jumped to an unheard of level for 0311's this month. I'm apparently just not sergeant material. I've been denying it, but getting out a corporal in October is looking more and more like a real possibility. If that's the case I'm just gonna stop doing things the right way and start working on my civilian hair cut and beard. That way I can get promoted to Master Pirate Hunter of the Seven Seas and forget about sergeant.
