So I am noticeably more grouchy lately. I blame the training, for real. We even got a letter issued from the commander saying that we will be irritable, jumpy, & have nightmares. Check, check, check.

So get this: on the taxi to the airport yesterday, I was talking quietly on my cell phone and there was this obnoxious idiot SCREAMING right in my ear, attempting to communicate with some other caveman.

“HEY. It’s not like I’m on the phone or anything.”


… on the bus back from training, some other caveman lieutenant had the foulest, most frat-boy mouth I’d ever heard. I was embarrassed that he was an officer.

“HEY. Shut your loud mouth! Nobody wants to hear you!”


Tomorrow I’m going shopping and meeting a friend for dinner here in Spokane, WA. Hopefully that will lift my spirits. I’m just really stressed about having four days to pack up my house & move in a week and a half. Lost ten pounds in survival training. Snapped at Larry last night because he wants to rent a car & visit me while I’m in water survival training in Pensacola. For my own good, and the good of others, I have holed up in my hotel room today to avoid offing anyone else’s head & try to get well from a really high fever I had last night. Scrubs will cure all, I believe.

Lastly, here is a cute picture of Audrey Hepburn and a baby deer:

I miss my piano.

    • I’ll be out in public next week, but totally healed about six weeks. Nose jobs aren’t completely “done” healing for up to a year! But after about a month and a half, the swelling is only really visible to you and your doctor.

  1. straight a’s!
    fantastic, well done!

    and you know i think you are an absolute stunner already, and still are with the bruises! can’t wait to see the before/after pix! xxx

  2. I thought you were really pretty before and now to be honest, I don’t recognize you, but wow that IS a straight nose bridge. I’m glad you are happy. You are healing really fast, too!

    • Aw, don’t be silly miss etoille. Once the swelling goes down it’ll be easier to tell it’s me! 🙂 I am resting a LOT, it’s the best thing I can do, that’s why I am healing fast!

      • Good for you! I am amazed at how much the swelling went down in four days. If I didn’t know you personally or had never seen you before, I wouldnt have been able to tell you had a nose job!!! Which is great, because the nose looks natural. You just look like you got in a nasty fight, and the other guy won! lol. I can’t wait to see the final result. I was so absorbed in the pictures, that I didn’t catch your Straight A’s. Nicely done!!

  3. no way, plastic surgery = t3h HURT!

    I will never ever get anything on my face done again – no face lifts for me in 30 years, NO WAY.

    If my boobs get any bigger they’ll have their own zip code. Guh!

    My advice is don’t get surgery for purely cosmetic reasons – that reason is not enough in itself. It is more about the emotional reasons than physical, in my case, which is why I said I’d go through this 10 more times if I got the same result. It’s tough to explain. ♥

  4. Hey, Spokane is where my father was born!

    Will you be coming out to Western Washington at all? Fort Lewis and McChord AFB are both fairly near my home. I know lots of cute cafes and things if you had some free time. Let me know if you’re ever in the area! And good luck finishing up over there/conquering the mean reds. (Holly Golightly mood, not Communism)
