Finally getting around to reading the Dune series. I've only been meaning to read it for about ten years. It's a bit slow to start but seems like interesting shit will go down soon. have also downloaded the miniseries for later.

I had such a bad day it's almost comical.

like not being 'entitled' to breakfast on the ship. even though I get there at 5:50 am before the mess in the shacks opens up and I pay 500 bucks a month for rations.

or like the PO directing me to the male washroom instead of the female one, it being the only door without a sign on it. That one was actually kind of funny.

or like being stuck on the ship for 2 hours past when I should have gone home because of force protection exercises.

or like bashing my knee really hard on a ladder and limping around for the rest of the day.

or like being the scum of the earth because I'm remustering to a trade I probably won't get terribly dirty in.

I'm developing a twitch. -_o

watching the alamo.

I do love old westerns.

Also the dates for my appointment at the BPSO got screwed up. so I don't go until the 20th now. Fail.

whatever :/

It's hard... once you've been through something exciting. Going back to doing boring things. Because now you realize that the life you had been leading before was even more useless and boring than you originally thought.

And now here I am. months after graduation still doing nothing I find even remotely interesting. Sweeping the same patch of floor for 6 hours. Cutting big pieces of pipe into smaller pieces of pipe. doing dishes. I am an inmate who gets sea pay. I busted my ass for five months doing drill, taking care of my kit, doing the bloody obstacle course, doing the bloody obstacle course in a fucking gas mask, meeting timings, marching around with a rucksack for miles, marching around on one leg with a rucksack for miles, working my ass off to earn the respect of my platoon mates and instructors, only to find out that I'm worse off professionally now than where I was at the feed mill. which is kind of shitty for morale and stuff.

*shakes fist at life*

my attach posting to the Regina has been extended to May 21st. Which means I'll be sailing after all.

Had a feeling this might happen.

anyways. Don't know where we're going yet. But we're going out for 2.5 weeks.

In other news my mother is coming out to visit me for the easter long weekend. That's 4 days spending 24 hours/day with her. This could either go really well or leave a crater that will obliterate victoria harbour. We shall see. Things have been good for a while so I'm pretty optimistic.

I just got the rickrolled in an awesome way.

Dan and I sleep with the webcams on. he sleeps listening to the CBC. The CBC is playing never gonna give you up.

watching a documentary on the westboro baptist church. Up to this point I'd only really heard that they do all these protests at funerals of american soldiers. Didn't really know or care why.

But holy shite.

I can't even...


these people are just... epic trolls. Only on 4chan have I found anything even remotely comparable.

Kansas is the new 4chan?

EPIC FAIL Army doctors. thanks a lot. Pffft. yeah here, have some anti inflammatories. you'll be fine.

Is it april 9th yet? D:

apparently our entire posting on the HMCS Regina will be spent on kitchen duty. FAIL FAIL FAIL.

the next few weeks just got a whole lot longer.

but tomorrow is friday. and I plan on partying it up this weekend again, as I seem to have miraculously grown a social life in the past couple weeks. Figures.

And there's a new fast & furious movie coming out or something? It'll inevitably suck. but I"ll go see it anyways :P

cleaned out my closet. It's roughly the size of the locker I had in basic. only I have to fit all my military kit and my civvy stuff in it as well. so it took some engineering to fit everything in. I made makeshift shelves out of the box my ps3 came in, though I don't know how long it'll hold up. And there's still some things that don't really have a place;;;

Looks like Dower, Slattery, and I are hitting the movies tonight. no idea what we're seeing but it should be fun times.

My mom sent me perfume of all things. It's really nice. But I don't think "romance" by ralph lauren really goes with my jeans and a hoodie style thing that I have going. Haha. oh mom...

Anyways. looks like my remuster is going through before may 25th. So I don't know if I'm still going to be on the regina or not. Whatever. I'm sure they'll tell me eventually. And it'll be like GO EXCHANGE ALL YOUR KIT YOU LEAVE TOMORROW KBYE. Because that's just the way the military seems to work. Nice things about airforce: CADPAT instead of stupid NCD, less kit to lug around, said kit is easier to maintain, and it looks like I'll end up in trenton. at least for a while.

Dower says that tomorrow I'm helping him cut 16 ft pipes into 1.75" sections. And while I'm thankful for something to do, this is like some kind of wacky punishment I'd only expect from my instructors in basic.


I went and got a hair cut today. going back saturday to do something color-wise.

apparently people are dragging me out to the bar tonight. We'll see how that goes...

who knew hair dryers were such a big deal...

So I ended up saying fuck the hair dryer and went and bought prince of persia instead.

and two tank tops. and some makeup. and a wallet.

and I bought a homeless guy an orange.
