katie: Last night Alex asked me what it was like being in a long term relationship since his longest one was four months.
katie: Well, normally I just blink at the person like they're an idiot but since he actually seemed to want to know I told him you're the only person I never get sick of so it works rather well.
She tolerates me!

I guess she didn't see the "apology note generator" part at the end. I love how it starts out almost sincere and then degenerates into making excuses. That second part fucking kills me every time.
I ordered three new bad ass Nintendo DS games. Metroid Prime Pinball, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, and Lost in Blue. Somewhere in the ordering process I lost my mind and had them shipped to my OLD address. Not even my parents' house, my old duplex on sixth street. And although I bought them through Amazon, two games came from sellers and only one came through Amazon itself. The killer is that one was shipped UPS and refused because it was the wrong address, another I can't track, and Amazon shipped USPS so it's been dropped off already. So now Katie has to get ahold of mom and to have her try to get my games from whoever lives at my old duplex and then my mom has to send them to me. I've already given the sellers my "I'm stuck in Iraq" story. Hopefully my games will get here before oh CHRISTMAS.
Dandy. Jim dandy.
After a solid three weeks of 12-13 hour days of nothing but work, I'm finally caught up and I've got nothing to do. Or very little to do. So I'm playing games and I'm determined to beat an Ultima game. Probably 7 or 8. Maybe 9 if I can get it.
What's there to say about Iraq? Everyday is the same. Same crap, different day. Nothing really changes. Ever. I can't really say anything interesting even happens here because I've got no huge stories that I can tell right now.
So I'll keep doing my thing and hope time keeps flying by.
