Wolfie and I got our military IDs today.  It's really real; I'm back in the Army.  And Wolfie is all registered and stuff as my husband.  As far as the Army is concerned, my name is now Dooley.

It's Dooley as far as the Social Security Administration and the Registry of Motor Vehicles is concerned, too.  Everywhere it counts, my last name is Dooley.

I've been practicing with it for several months now.  I thought I was used to it.  But now that it's all legal and in big computer systems, it's fuckin' weird.  It was easier to get used to calling myself Tasha in the SCA.  I can just see it -- someone will be trying to get my attention, calling "Captain Dooley!  Captain Dooley!" and I'll ignore them because obviously my name is Captain Sawyer.  Except it isn't.


I have knitting students tonight.  I have a splitting headache.  I'd beg off, but I need the money.  I don't know when the Army's going to pay me, and as an officer I have to pay for most everything, so every little bit helps.  Should be interesting, at any rate, and I always appreciate the opportunity to improve my teaching skills.

i feel: tired tired

Actually, I'm pretty sure that it was my skill set that got me recalled -- all that yummilicious trans-pow-tay-shun experience.

Aw yes

It is the best of times (medical, commisary,and a reg check) it is the worse of times (lots of stuff goes here). 23 years Air Force. Our marriage stuck the 23 years it bonds you in a way maybe others may not understand. Don't laugh 23 freaking years of it is talkin, :) Just wish you the very very best.

Re: Aw yes

Oh, I'm not laughing. We've been through a lot in the almost four years we've been together -- death of a parent, suicide of close friend, job losses, financial difficulties, but I think this is the real test. Through everything else we've each had the other's physical presence. Now we have to go it alone, and still remain close, and I think we can do that.

Keptain Dooley! Keptain Dooley!

Why.. does that remind me of a character name on Star Trek?
tashabear From: tashabear Date: October 13th, 2004 07:48 pm (UTC) (base camp)
Because the name of the actor who played Scotty is James Doohan?

you could have been really obstinate and chosen a last name that was a combo of the two like:

sawley
dooyer
dawyer
sooley
leyyer
sawdoo
doosaw
yerler
erdow

(i could probably keep doing that for hours. but i won't.)
your underlings will thank you for not doing that.

Gah. I think any kids we might have would thank us for not doing that.
