I’ve been missing from the MFF ranks for a few weeks now, but there’s nothing like an early Friday wake-up (boo-hiss, flight schedule, boo-hiss) to inspire a jump back onto the fill-in wagon.
My plans for Labor Day included bottling our beer, but what really happened was the drive back home from my unplanned (precipitated by Hurricane Irene) trip to Northern Virginia. I call it my HURREVACation.
Call me crazy, but sometimes I just need to play old video games. I grew up with Sonic the Hedgehog and Ecco the Dolphin, and there’s still something magical about those games to me. Modern graphics and sound are not the be-all, end-all of the gaming experience.
One of the funniest things I’ve seen lately is my cousin’s three-year-old daughter dancing up a storm at a recent family birthday party.
It’s strange, but a haircut of Sampson’s that has grown out too much drives me crazy while his still-extant deployment mustache is perfectly fine with me! You would not believe the (good-natured) crap I have gotten for “letting” him keep the ‘stache this long after coming home. At this point, I think he should go ahead and keep it around for the next deployment so we don’t have to endure the awkward, sketchy-to-the-max growing phase.
One, two, buckle my shoe… three, four, shut the door — and hope they don’t have blasters.
