It has been hot here lately. So hot that I decided that tonight was a good night for a smoothie. So I gathered up the requisite supplies (so I thought), and headed back to the CHU for some strawberry banana smoothie goodness. I had plenty of ice, strawberries, banana milk, banana juice, blender, cup...it was all there. So I make the PERFECT smoothie. I mean this is the first time that I have been able to get the consistency just right. Then it it hits me as I try to take a drink from the cup...I HAVE NO STRAWS! I mean this consistency is so perfect that I actually NEED a straw this time. And I have none. My Kingdom for a straw! Luckily I am a lover of the Wendy's Frozen Shake...So I decided just to eat it with a spoon. But, really, someone send me some straws!
I have the benefit of two of my very own personal greeters when I come into my room. They are kind-of like the Wal-Mart greeters, but FAR less annoying, and far more reliable. My greeters, of course, are my two Glade Sense & Sprays...every time I come home and turn on the lights, I get a nice "Hello" from my two pals, and also a nice little puff of fresh linen scent! They are so good to me. I have one in the bathroom, too...so I get a little greeting when I go in there, too...but that is just kinda weird to imagine a greeter in your bathroom...so I just ignore that one. You wouldn't believe what kind of little things that you find hilarious here! I laugh every time I get back to my CHU, just thinking about these "Greeters."
Is it just me, but when did grown men start wearing capri pants? I just walked back from the Dining Facility and I saw two Russian dudes, Army Dudes, wearing civilian Capri Pants...some of our Iraqi interpreters wear them too. I have no idea when this fashion thing happened. Did I miss something? I have a hard time believing that there are a bunch of bubbas running around Alabama, wearing Capri Pants, yelling "Roll Tide!" And I can't imagine it EVER happening. I will try to snap a picture of this strange phenomenon the next time I come across it.
Not much else going on here, just trying to finish the first season of Stargate Universe...just one more series that is more believable than 24...
