cpt d and the terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad 48 hours
The world is conspiring against me to piss me off and make me late.

No, really, I think there was a memo.

First there was a line at the laundry. There's never a line at the laundry. (I blame the Air Force; they were the ones in the line.) Then I had to get money at the ATM to send a package, but the ATM was busted (I'm going to blame the Air Force for this one, too, mostly because I can). So I had to go buy something at the PX so I could get cash back, which led me to one of the two positive experiences all day -- they had Diet Coke. I sent the package, which was remarkably painless, and dropped off the laundry, at which time I nailed the count for the first time ever (I have to count out my socks and underwear in front of the guy, so we both know how many I turn in, and I alway screw it up; this was the second good thing). Meanwhile, my unit was moving out of the trailers we've been working in and into a tent, which is oh by the way even farther away from where I live. Yay. Also, the latrines around here rarely have toilet paper. I had to drive to another part of camp to forage for toilet paper.

To top it all off, the computer I usually work at shit the bed... some sort of boot error (Win2000, gah), so I have to create a boot disk from another Win2K box and try to fix it.

Also, half the people I work with may very well be traveling home with me in March. Good for them, but I really wanted to just say goodbye and enjoy demobilizing on my own.

Can I go home now?

i feel: cranky cranky
