strangely productive

I had a whole hour today during which I was productive! I sent home a package of crap that I accumulated (did you know that you can't put "sundry crap" on the customs form? Crazy!), I took my dirty clothes to the laundry (I am SO going to miss free laundry service -- I haven't washed my own clothes in months!), and I got a new prepaid card for my cell phone. I was even a good Samaritan: I stopped in at the PX up on the southeastern side of camp, where the cell phone kiosk is, just to check it out, and the poor kid in line ahead of me didn't realize that they're cash only. He'd already taken a slug of his Gatorade, and he had no cash at all. So I spotted him the 75 cents, and gave him and his buddy a ride to the main courtyard, where we have an ATM and the Finance office, where you can get cash advances on your paycheck. Poor kid just looked mortified when he didn't have any money to pay for his drink -- it was the least I could do. Besides, the PX gives you change in these plastic pogs (they're lighter to ship here than real change), and it gave me a chance to get rid of them.

Other than that, and making a phone call to find out why the admin section made my final destination Ft Jackson instead of Ft Dix when I go home (I'm sure they just went back to my earliest set of orders, which sent me to Jackson), I've done Nothing Of Consequence. I suppose I can go through my foot locker and rolly suitcase tonight to see what else I can send back. It'd be something to do...
