July 1, 2005

Ogreetings everyone. Welcome to another exciting episode of Tony's life. Today's story revolves around my roommate, coworker, and Korean friend Eun Chang. I didn't know it, but he was getting promoted today. Luckily I brought my camera with me to get a picture of him. I have a video of it too but he sounded like a dork on it and besides, I can't add video to my blog anyway. Otherwise, I'd let you all hear him stumble some words out of his mouth because he was so nervous, Haha. Just Kidding Jung. You know I love ya man!

Old SSG Woodie got promoted today too. He's been in a few of the races that I've run. I hate running with him because this is one of those guys that never goes out and runs, yet he can beat me any day of the week at any race. He's so naturaly fast. I wish I was born with natural talent like he is. Anyway, Hardy Woodie got his E-7 pinned on today.

And here is Eun Chang getting his Sergeant stripes today. I told him that since he is going to outrank me for about a month that he is going to have to do all of the work in the office now and I'l be the one to check my emails all day and dissappear for hours at a time.

After the awards ceremony we had training all day long. It's the most boring day of the year. They give classes on such exciting topics as "drive under the speed limit, "drink water when it's hot outside," and the ever popular "be careful when it rains." I mean, honestly how many times do you need to be dropped on your head as a child before you honestly don't know that you're supposed to drink extra fluids when your hot? I swear if there is a retard that stupid in the Army, I sure as hell don't want to be sitting next to him when I got to battle. He'd be asking me who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. But the Army wastes a full day and plenty of Tax payers dollars for us to sit in an auditorium and feed us crap instead of actually doing productive work. Don't you feel content knowing what your money is spent on now? Well, enough of my little rant.
So here I am at the beginning of the day. As you can see there is still a smile on my face. That's SSG Leir in the background. He's our only pagan soldier in the BN. The funny thing is, though he's pagan, he's probbaly the most practicing religious soldier in the entire BN. Go figure. Anyway, I sadly don't have any picture of me at the end of the day to show you how my attitude drastically deteriorated by the end of the day. I was probably asleep. Actually I kept myself awake by writing a much needed letter to my mom. She recently sent me a package of my hometown newspaper and some pictures, so I wanted to send her a letter to say thank you.

I heard from my wife today. She worked at another show last night. She was a good guy and got to slap one of the wrestlers. I think that is just the coolest thing ever. I brag to everyone that my wife is an actress. I love it. I've really been trying to write her more everyday. I send her about 3 emails a day now. I hope she doesn't get tired of them all, but I believe that it's very important to have excellent communication between husband and wife in order to maintain a healthy marriage. I think that's even profoundly more necessary when there are 6,000 miles separating the two of you. We chat a lot online every day and we both have cameras on our computer so we can see each other every day. Sherry dyed her hair again recently and now has dark brown hair. I was hesitant to have her get it, but I believe that its her life and she should live it how she likes. I was suprised that it actually looks pretty good on her. It's going to be hard to see her as a blond again after having seen her with dark hair for so long now.
