Bananas, on the other hand, work great!

Not much went on today.  Except that one of my interpreters went on leave, and another is going to be leaving us to take a job as a civilian working at the school.  So we really won't be losing him.  Power issues continue, but they are gradually keeping it on longer and longer.  Seems like they find a way to get things done when we cut them off from the US largess.  They have been relatively lazy for a long time, since they knew that if they drug their feet long enough the US would swoop in and bail them out at the 11th hour.  I guess that they are finally getting the hint that we won't do that anymore.

They had Bananas in the DFAC today, so I grabbed a few.  Made some Strawberry and Banana Smoothies.  I must say, Bananas work SOOOOO much better than Kiwi for a frozen concoction to help you hang on (thanks Jimmy).  Unfortunately, I am still having to use Blue Monster for the "fun" part of the drink.  Not sure it would be worth it to try any of the funny stuff, even though I know the stuff exists can get anything in Baghdad for a $1, or so my Interpreters tell me.

I must get to dinner now, want to get back in time to watch opening day at Wrigley.  Go Cubs!  I still have faith.

And good luck to the Blackhawks on their quest for the cup, too!
