In the News, Loss of Privacy, and getting thoroughly SOAKED

"Not all of the milbloggers write about their faith (or lack of) in the mission. Sgt. Lizzie describes her location as "Hell, Iraq." Her blog is aptly named "Life in This Girl's Army" ( http://sgtlizzie.blogspot.com and reads much like a college kid's diary. Her post for Nov. 8, 2004 is entitled "288," which is how many days she's been in country."
As noted above, I have now been featured in the news, though I am not sure whether that is a compliment or not. I realize that I do come across rather flaky, but as I have pointed out before, I just don't like to dwell on the bad situations here. It does nobody any good and only serves to get us down.
I am moving rooms today as we are consolidating buildings to make room for the new BN coming in to take our place. Unfortunatly, I now live in a room with 5!!! other females. As I wrote to a friend of mine, Let the screaming commence. Before, I lived with one other roomie, and I had my little fortress that kept me cut off from the rest of the world in the evenings. It gave me a place to escape and be alone, something I do enjoy from time to time. BUT, it is only for 2 weeks before we move to Kuwait. I think I can survive:-D
Yesterday afternoon was spent cleaning generators with the pressure washer, and where there is water, there is bound to be people getting wet. That was me yesterday, by the time we finished the only part of my uniform that was dry was the back of my DCU top and I was literally shivering from head to toe. Before we went to chow I had to go sit in front of my little small heater and thaw out! Still, fun because it is all part of leading us home.
I have added a new Blogger to my favourite bloggers section. She is someone I knew back in the states and always has the most interesting things to say. I strongly urge checking her out:-D
