Hope everyone is doing well! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Albany is still a little messy from the ice storm and all the snow. Anyone snowed in? Stuck in an airport?
Side note: I got my grades back…3.94!!! I got three As and one A-. I was so excited I did a cheerleading move I haven’t done since 1999 and pulled a leg muscle. Then ran down the stairs with a laptop in hand, fell down the last two steps, and my snowflake earrings stabbed me in the face. (I was at a “wear your shittiest Christmas sweater” holiday party when I found out…hence the snowflake earrings)
Alright, I have to wrap presents still, clean, and paint my nails. Good luck with all the family fun tomorrow!
Goodbye, Hello, and Smoke Weed.
-British Forces will withdraw from the city of Basra by May. Those British guys were always so lovely to run into. They never talked to any of us. They would just chain smoke and giggle at who knows what. And guess who's going to replace them? American forces! You better watch your ass if you're in the IRR.

-Afghanistan may be catching up. By next summer Afghanistan could see an increase in 30,000 US forces. The increase of troops would be comprised of combat, aviation, medical and civil affairs forces. The 10th Mountain Division will deploy next month. Good luck!
Afghanistan on the radar.
-While we're on the topic of Afghanistan: Coalition and Afghan troops found 2.5 tons of marijuana...2.5 tons. Do you know how much weed that is? Jesus. Anyways, they found all this weed in an abandoned school in southern Afghanistan. And then they destroyed it. I'm sure they didn't smoke any of it.

No, you can't....
I have sitemeter. I can tell how people find my blog, where they are from, etc. So, someone typed in this question on google, "can you wear thongs at army basic training."
Really? No. You can't fucking wear thongs at basic training. First, why would you want to wear a thong at basic training? Does that even make any sense to you? You aren't sitting in a classroom all day. You actually have to do things...many things and a thong would be completely uncomfortable. But you know what you can wear? You can wear white Hanes granny panties. Everyone has to wear them. And you shouldn’t worry about what type of underwear you have to wear anyways…no one is going to see them. If you’re a female and thinking of joining, please ask me questions. I’ll try to help you out as best as I can. Ground rules….One, no thongs. Two, no pink nail polish. Three, you’re going to get dirty and sweat. Four, you carry your own shit. Five, don’t get married to the first Army guy who sweet talks you. You’ll be divorced in three months. Oh, and try not to get pregnant. Six, don’t walk around like you have something to prove. Seven, don’t complain.

R.I.P. Bettie Page.
Bettie Page passed away Thursday night. She was 85. Bettie Bettie Bettie. What can I say about her? If you don't know who she is, something is wrong with you and you probably lead a boring sex life.
The LA Times wrote a nice obituary.
You've never had a bad day until you've had to carry your own leg...

US Defense Department knew of the threat posed by roadside bombs...
I don't know about you but I'm completely disgusted. Somethings will never make sense to me. Never. Maybe if some action have been taken hundreds if not thousands of U.S. military personnel could've been spared.

BAGHDAD HOSPITAL: INSIDE THE RED ZONE.
Has anyone seen this documentary? I stumbled across it today on HBO. While I only caught the last 20 minutes of it, what I saw was almost beyond words.
It is the story of an Iraqi doctor named Omer Salih Mahdi who works in the emergency room at Al-Yarmouk hospital in Baghdad.
He takes you inside a hospital that has deplorable conditions. The staff is exhausted and drained. Iraqis are in and out of the ER with wounds from IEDs and being caught in the middle of sectarian violence. You see Iraqis who are just extremely fed up with the whole situation.
