I was talking very briefly to my best friend (a woman; don't see that often with a straight guy/straight gal) and she was sort of short with me. I was trying a bit to keep some small-talk going & see what was new with her, and she just came at me with a gush of complaints about me.

We had a nice visit during her birthday weekend, where I casually tested the waters to see if there was any change in her feelings for me since our last time together almost 3 years ago. Seeing that we were just friends, and that the ship sailed (if it was ever even in port) I let it go & continued on my merry way. Vacation after all, right? Fast-forward to tonight, just over a week later, and she claims I was a jerk to her during the last meal we shared the night before I left town. I recall eating, having 2 beers & a mixed drink over the course of a night, and basically treating her like I treat all of my friends. Her brother stopped in at the bar, and we all hung out for a little while before he took off & she took me back to my hotel. I thanked her (yet again) for a nice, relaxing weekend, gave her a hug, and went into my room alone; that was the last time I saw her.

I met a girl here in town a few days later, and after hanging out with her...

My gardening equipment has begun arriving, after a 30 day wait on postal service! I spent Thursday afternoon assembling and testing the system, and then went out with a friend to shop for seeds & tomato plants. My living room is now turning into a right proper garden for veggies! I plan to buy flower seeds before end of season and grow flowers to sell outside...

Well, in celebration of the Independence Day I went ahead and ordered my expensive-shit gardening equipment!

Soon, edible delights will bloom in my home and people across the neighborhood will rejoice. ^_^

I am still pursuing something concrete with my new friend across the Pacific; I figure someone who works the pipeline in Alaska has to understand the isolation a wee bit when it comes...

Just feel like posting the various things I have cooked in my time off so far this week. I don't cook as often as I would like because I have to share a community kitchen with the rest of my building, and these kids do a shit job cleaning up after themselves. Once I move, I will likely cook every day or at least...

So I have 3 days off, and the weather is a bit MEH. I am being a bit of a homebody, paying bills, cooking meals, and generally enjoying what I have here indoors instead of going out and spending ungodly amounts of money this week.

Saturday is a big picnic, and my office is donating 600 wings to help feed The Horde. We each are...

Well, today is my 26th birthday! I am getting myself "Man Pretty," as my best friend calls it, as I have a semi-blind date with a girl I was introduced to a few weeks back. We're going downtown for Thai food, which sounds like a can't-go-wrong on paper. ^_^ We'll see how things turn out.

Got my totally awesome "SG Pin-Ups For...

Well, tonight's shift is my 45th out of 45, so I am nearly across the finish line! I can't wait to just RELAX this weekend and unwind at last.

Looking forward to spring weather, my birthday coming up soon, and a chance to get outside in Japan. I also have been put on 2 separate Beer Quests to find both Shiner Bock & a...

Well, I've only got 15 days left of my additional duty & base restriction before I can get a break from work! I am excited to "rejoin" society. I have managed to get out and about more lately as a designated driver on the weekends, and I am pulling an 8 hours shift of it after 8 hours of "regular" work so I can have...

Well, I got a decent break from the senior non-commissioned officer in charge of my additional duty punishment: Because my office often has to stay late for flying missions or bad weather, each time I get tasked to remain beyond the usual 8 hours will count as one day of my community service, out of my 45 that I owe.

I'm doing 2-3 days...

$961 this year coming back from taxes, compared with almost $1400 last year. True, I was un-taxable for 4 months because of a deployment, and paid an actual state tax, but the number still is a bit of a wake-up call. I am glad I am a Washington resident & therefore do not pay a monthly income tax to the state, so I guess I am...

I submitted another short news piece to SG, so fingers crossed that they at least gimme the courtesy of a "Dear Weatherpunk" letter if it won't get posted. tongue

If it gets the green-light, I'd like to do a revolving piece where I bring news related to our environment/natural resources being used & the conflict it causes when there isn't enough to go...

I saw "Yes Man" Friday night with my co-workers, and we absolutely LOVED it! It's been forever since Jim Carrey was in something that was meant to be a comedy all along, and this truly is his forte. The comedy even managed to squeeze enough room for some light romance thanks to the Ridicu-Hot Zooey Deschanel. I wouldn't have thought they would have...
