Viva Laaas Vegas

I'm at Doha right now, waiting to get on the plane to go home for my R&R. Good god. It couldn't have come at a better time. Weather's at an All-Time shitty. Things are starting to get on my nerve. My patience is starting to dwindle, which in turn, makes me an asshole. So ya, going home is good.

My mom won't be able to pick me up, so I got 2 of my closest friends picking me up at the Airport.

What's gonna be annoying is that the moms wants me to go to the casino where she works right from the airport, because that's around the time she gets off. I'm thinking that she wants to parade me around. FUCK.

I really don't wanna do it, but gonna hafta. I don't wanna be in the spotlight because I'm in the Army, and using it deliberately for that. It cheapens it all, in my opinion. But, Oh well.

They put out in the brief that "Consumption of Alcoholic Beverages is not allowed while in DCU's"

While that is true, what I've heard is that, it's a don't ask, don't tell rule when we arrive to into the states. Like for me, I'll be arriving in to Dallas-Ft. Worth. What EVERYONE that I've been talking to says that they head straight for the bars till their connecting flight.

So ya. I'm not 21 yet. So OF COURSE I'm NOT going to drink. I'll have a club soda :) (How ya doin Big B?)

I found out yesterday that we had another accident. The Maintenance Bobtail 915 flipped/rolled over while coming back from Iraq. The SGT broke his leg in 3 places and the other soldier sustained minor injuries. Thank god that was it. This unit doesn't need another unfortunate tragedy.

So moving on to lighter news. Can't wait to eat a nice juicy steak, eat ma-la fire pot, Vietnamese Pho Soup, sooo much food, sooo much partying, I'm gonna come back a bonified fat-ass. Yes!!!!!

So see ya.

Hi Janie!
