Heather Martin - This little girl is amazing [05 Jan 2007|11:24am]
[ mood | touched ]

Heather Martin is a 6 year old girl who is singing about her brother who is in the army and away in the war in Iraq



When Are You Coming Home (Lyrics)
You were almost sixteen when I came into the world.
Mom and Dad had you first then 3 more boys I’m the baby girl.
I sure have a lot to look up to in you, you’re really smart and funny with a big heart too.
After one year of college you knew what you had to do.
It’s just like you wanting to help with the war.
So you joined the army when I was only 4.
This time of year we talk of big plans but you’re over seas in some distant land.
You can’t be here for Christmas, I don’t understand.
Chorus:
When are you coming home, Shaun?
When are you coming home?!
We lit up the house like we always do but it doesn’t seem bright ’cause we can’t have you.
In my prayers I ask God to keep you safe.
And I’m trying to be really brave.
Tell me that the fighting’s through.
Come home!
I really miss you.

It’s hard to enjoy the holidays without you.
But we’re so proud of you and all the red white and blue.
Remember that Jesus is your best friend,
And someday our families will be together again.
Wow! You know we’ll have a great big party then.

Chorus

I want to show you how tall I’ve grown and introduce you to my new friends at school.
Maybe we could go and get some ice cream together but I really don’t care what we do.

Soilwork [06 Oct 2006|06:46pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

Soilwork
Current mood: chipper

Went to see Soilwork play at Jaxx last night. It was a pretty good show and seeing a Swedish Metal band play is never wrong, LOL. Other bands there that played were Adversary and Mnemic.

Bit in the butt by hornet [23 Sep 2006|12:23pm]
As I got up at 0400am this morning to get ready for my trip to Canada I sat down in my computer chair to check my email. A few seconds afterward I felt a sting on the side of my butt and when I got up to check I saw a hornet sitting there on the seat.

I ran upstairs to wake my roommate up in order to make him my knight in shining armor so that he could get rid of the horrible beast. He managed to smash it into pieces, not with a sword but with the sole of a sneaker which I was greatful for.

I had actually seen it flying around the night before but after a while it had disappeared and I decided to just ignore its presence. I even told the Swedish girl Inger that I was going to travel with about it and had stated that I would probably end up getting stung by it right before leaving. I guess I made that into a self fullfiling prophesy. Sitting on that area for the next 10 hours during the car ride up to Toronto wasn´t exactly my idea of fun but since I now am there visiting my friend Sofia it was well worth it.

The car ride was never boring either since I had 4 people to chat and hang out with too. The plan is to go to a big house party tomorrow and then off to a club where some jungle D.J`s will spin which should be exciting since I haven`t listened to jungle in a long time.

Well, I am off to be sociable now!!!

Canada trip this weekend!!!!! [20 Sep 2006|10:35am]
[ mood | excited ]

I am going on a roadtrip to Canada this weekend with three people that I have never met in my entire life.

There is a website for Swedish people that want to connect to other Swedes that live abroad. I got contacted by a Swedish girl that lives pretty close to me. She messaged me saying that it would be fun to have lunch sometime and gave me her phone number.

I called her this past Sunday and she mentioned that she was driving to Toronto, Canada with two friends that were going to compete in a race up there. I told her that I had a Swedish friend named Sofia that had just moved there and that she was getting married. When she heard that she told me that there was room for me in the car if I wanted to tag along. DID I? What do you think?
I found out today that I can get my Friday and my Monay shift covered by relief staff so CANADA HERE I COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IV's, Sickness, Beach, sharks, oil leak... [05 Sep 2006|10:49pm]
[ mood | sick ]

Went down to NC this past weekend to take some of my friends that are leaving for Iraq to Myrtle Beach so that they could have some fun before going. Facing the risk of bad weather we decided to just go somewhere closer and ended up at Atlantic Beach. Hung out there and then went to the aquarium. 
Experienced people playing playstation games in their rooms with IV's in their arms due to drinking too much the night before and no one thinking anything of it.

My car started to leak oil heading back from the beach and now I am stuck in NC. The Honda dealer is supposed to take a look at it tomorrow and hopefully it is nothing too bad going on with it. Had some people take a look at it and they put it up with a jack in the wrong place. Now I have a raised floor on the passenger side floor.

I am getting sick now too. I am coughing, sneezing and have a sore throat and sore lymph nodes. I have already missed two days of work so if I miss more or call out sick they are definitely going to think I am just making it all up and just want more vacation.

However, all the bad stuff that has happended still hasn't overshadowed this weekend which was awesome overall!!!

Show and a hurt Romeo [22 Aug 2006|12:04pm]
Got my arm twisted (didn't have to be twisted too hard) to go and see Hatebreed, Full Blown Chaos, Goatwhore, Younglood and Zoo play last Friday. Since I hadn't been to a hardcore/metal show in years it was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed myself and the company. The bands put on a hell of a show & the only bad thing was that when someone spilled beer on my arm it somehow got my phone wet too. It stopped working and I had to open it up and let it dry all weekend. Luckily it is now working again. It would suck to loose all the phone numbers I have since I have about 150 numbers in there.

On Saturday I went with 4 other people on a roadtrip to Fayettville. It was a kick ass time too. Imagine a bunch of people doing stupid jackass type of stuff, videotaping it and luckily NOT getting in trouble.

On Sunday I finally got the phone to work somewhat and was able to check my messages and had 5 messages telling me that my horse Romeo had gotten hurt earlier that day.
This person that also rides him decided that she was going to show him that plastic bags aren't dangerous. If you are going to desensitize a horse to something you have to do it in a small area such as a stall and then hold the object and gradually move it closer to him. She on the other hand tied the black plastic bag to the saddle horn and once he got moving it filled with air and started making noice which made him panic since in his mind it must have been a predator trying to get him. He ended up cutting himself over the eye and had to get stitches and a draining tube inserted. His eye is all swollen and filled with puss. I feel so bad for him. Hopefully it will heal fast!!! It looks pretty bad though but I hope he will be okay in the end.

Snake at work [07 Jul 2006|01:55am]
[ mood | Intriqued ]

When I came to work last night I ended up calling my co-workers as I was standing outside there door. I told them that I was not coming in. When they asked why I told them to come to the front door to see for themselves. A large black snake had parked itself outside and there is no way that I was going to try to go past it just in case it would try to bite me.

Checking out snakes on the internet we figured out that it was a black racer snake. It also had this comment attached  "This snake will usually flee when approached, but will strike aggressively if harassed. It is harmless, but can create gashing wounds with its strike-and-slash bite pattern."               Good thing I played it safe and found another door to enter the building.

Later on in the night I walked outside and found a black branch that looked quite shiny from the rain. I then ran inside and proclaimed to my co-worker "Look, I got it!" It scared the crap out of him since to him it really looked as if I was holding it and was about to throw it at him. I am such a nice person to work with, aren't I.

Skydiving on the 4th [05 Jul 2006|10:22pm]
Spent the 3rd in Delaware and at Dewey Beach with Bobby. It was fun but I was surprised to find out that all the hang out spots closes at 1am there. It was just as good though since we had to be ready to go skydiving at 8am the next day on the 4th.

Once we got to the skydiving place we had to endure a movie about skydiving and then some training on proper body positioning while in the air before we could get up in the plane and jump. Oh, and not to mention all the papers we had to sign saying that we did this at our own risk and that we would not sue if something went wrong. Hm... it would probably be kind of hard to sue then since you would probably be a pancake anyways.

Bobby and his uncle got to jump first and then me and Billy.
It was strange but I didn't feel the least anxious or nervous at all and the 60 second free fall didn't give me the expected butterflies in my stomach either. Maybe it was due to me doing a tandem jump this time and that my life now was in the hands of a man that had over 6000 jumps under his belt. I don't know but when I jump again I will definitely do it by myself so that I hopefully can get the adrenaline kick that I love again. I guess that knowing that my life is in my own hands and that I mustn't mess up helps raise your adrenaline. It was still a blast and I will definitely have to go again sometime soon.

About to get picked up now so that I can go and see the fireworks in DC. Have a Happy 4th of July!!!

Pictures will be posted soon. This is all I have for now until I get the pictures that other people took.

Me about to skydive

Skydiving on the 4th of July [01 Jul 2006|07:54pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

Got a call from my friend Bobby the other day. He and his uncle were going to go skydiving on the 4th and he asked if I wanted to go. My response was "Hell Yea, but I will need to see if I can get the previous night off".  I was able to get someone to do the shift for me so guess if I am excited.

Hopefully everything will go well without any accidents. I guess that if you don't see me post again then something bad happened. I am going to bring my camera so I am hoping I will be able to get some good pictures from it to show.

My roommate Jason helped me give Maya a bath yesterday. Do I need to mention that she was not very amused by it? At least I didn't get scratched this time.



Hurray for Sweden playing 2-2 agains England in soccer. That means that we are still in and will be playing Germany next!!!

Kim, I tried to call you to let you know that I have it but the phone is not in service so hopefully you will read this and can get it back sometime soon.

Fortune Cookies... [02 May 2006|05:42pm]
[ mood | satisfied ]

When you get a fortune from a Chineese fortune cookie that is great and it comes true that very same night then things are pretty freakin' awesome!!! YES!!!

I am down in NC at the moment and I still feel really strongly about moving back down here. However, I realize that I need to take care of all my obligations and things up in VA first and not move on impulse. I also need to figure out what to do with a certain new complication to the move... hm...

Friday: Dinner with the Coaster Crew down in Fredricksburg.
Saturday: Down at Kings Dominion riding rides all day. Due to it raining on and off there were almost no people there and we didn't have to worry about waiting in lines at all. Sometimes we could even ride the same ride3-4 times in a row without even getting out of our seats.
Left at closing time and went out which was a blast big time.
Sunday: Recuperated!!!


Pushing the mystery van out of the mud.

Happiness is... [19 Apr 2006|10:44am]
[ mood | loved ]

Happiness is finding your horse laying down in the field and allowing you to sit down next to him and pet him without getting up.

I so wish that I would have had my camera.

Lucking out... [16 Apr 2006|10:25pm]
[ mood | good ]

Before going out last night the couple that I went out with had promised some guys that we would pick them up from base and give them a ride to where they wanted to go.
We had to stop and give me a pass so that I would be allowed to get on. You aren't allowed to talk on a cellphone there and of course I got caught doing that. An MP walks up to me and once he gets closer to my car I say "Oh shit, it's you". He looks up and goes "I was just about to write you a ticket". Thereafter he walks back to where he came from. The guy was one of the Miliary Police guys that we had played pool with the other night so I definitely lucked out on that one. It is good to have connections.
