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 here...you 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!
