Fight to conquer. Conquer to rule. Rule to excel. As rulers, we show respect to our enemy and do not mock them in battle. For to do so is to show the mark of a weakened man, and not a true ruler. -Tidurian

Just had my engine blow up on my car, and can't tell if it's just the timing or if it's a rod... Need someone with bigger tools than I have to come help me take the bastard apart, so, I'm just chilling in the AC while they get here with the air compressor and power tools... <3

While I do that, I'm Zorking out... So life is kind of peachy, kind of sucky at the same time. At least I haven't been bitten by a Grue today.

Alright, I confess, I'm a... squid...

It happened almost a year ago! I wandered into an office, they had me sign some papers, and next thing I knew, I was wearing a uniform and calling people 'shipmate'!
I need to find something to drink, I'm too sober for this tale.

LOL! At least you're calling them shipmate, and not "seaman"

Oh, I sometimes call them that too. I do feel bad for some of my fellow sailors who's last names go with their rank a little too well.

Maybe it was just before you entered service, but they were making a huge push to ban the term 'Shipmate,' because all the Chiefs and Officers used it as a demeaning term when correcting junior sailors. Now they're trying to replace it with 'Sea Warrior!'

Sadly, this seems to be the type of crap the bigwigs spend time addressing while other more life impacting problems are left unaddressed. Smile

I've never had a Seaman xxx that was too comical, but we did have a PO2 Lord, and some of our more devout friends onboard refused to call her by her last name.

Hm, well, we do have a poor lass wandering called SN Carter. And another named Box. Eh, but after awhile the jokes do get old. And where I am, there's plenty of Air Force, Army, and Marines to keep reminding us of all of them.

And Smokey, most of us have to have a sense of humor. We agreed to go out into the middle of an ocean on a floating chunk of metal with enough flammable and explosive materials to destroy that chunk of metal a few times over with nowhere to run to get to safety... Alright, scratch that, it isn't a sense of humor that we have, it's a lack of common sense. Ah well, at least it gives us a good excuse to be alcoholics. After all, the best time to handle all those materials is when drunk, right? ... I better go practice my swimming.

Sea warrior? *scritches* But what if I'm in the middle of the desert attached to the Marines? Am I then called Sand warrior? Ef Em Ef warrior? ;p I'm just being nitpicky. I'm a Corpsman, married to a Corpsman. The kid thinks shots are awesome! Rolling Eyes I wish.

Alrighty. Finally decided to a Clan at lvl19. To be honest what made me do it was I visited these forums. The struck a chord. I'm retired Navy. Though Brass, not Iron. Razz Hope one of my kind is allowed here.

Any 7th Fleet here?

Yokosuka... such fun. Was on a DDG in DESRON15, spent lots of time in Chinhae (well or near it realistically).

Combat Engineer? So you built booby traps and designed ambush funnels then?

That and defused minefields, played with dozers and then went mech and played with AVLB and AVLM vehicles. MOST fun was playing with C4 and kicker charges...

Doing pretty good tonight. Smile

Still dealing with a sick puppy, but he's feeling a bit better and I got to spend some time sitting in the pasture sharing tea with my goats. Which, is always very relaxing. My mom came by today to share in the cheese I've been making and to discuss the details of my wedding later this year.

So, all in all it's been a good day. ^.^
