  • Awesome assignment

    This may be long, but its not like I have anything better to do.....

    So my new Commander is adjusting to his first command, and decides that he's going to get our squadron recognized (because then he gets recognized and might get that little birdie on his shoulder). So there's an exercise going on at our base that our squadron isn't even apart of. So Mr. Commander says to himself, "Self, we should find a way to be apart of this exercise. I know! I'll volunteer SrA CA_Man_In_HI to help babysit the computers during the night shift. Sure, he's married and works days, and sure there are single people who work nights, but I'll have him do it anyways." So here I am, working the first of 5 10-hour shifts this week guarding computers in a secured building in on a secured base.
    But things are not as bad as they seem. It turns out we have a nice 10x10 foot projection screen with cable and DVD, a laptop that is connected to the internet but WITHOUT the gov't blocking (hello online games), and a kitchen stocked full of coffee and Mountain Dew all complimantry. Yes, I'd still rather be at home with my wife and sleeping when it's dark out as God intended, but at least the 50 hours of work this week won't be utter hell.

    -Sidenote- When I worked as a DL Security CM, I had jobs very simliar to this (ie. staying in a shop in New Orleans Square all night because they painted it and can't close the doors, thus unable to turn on the alarm system). 6 years later, after basic training, getting stationed in hell (ie Virginia) and with the constant threat of a deployment to Iraq, nothing has really changed.

    Feel free to reply and keep my happy little shift going

    Well it could be worse.......at least you have Mice chat to be checking back with and seeing if anyone has noticed your thread, and is kind enough to keep you company! )
    I know there are a lot of late nighters around here!

      This is very true. I did wonder about the time of day. It's already almost midnight on the West Coast, while it's only 8:45 here in Hawaii. I just got done playing battleship. So that helped a little bit. 9 hours and 15 minutes to go!

                Not tonight unfortunately. With the military you never know if things are going to be relaxed or uptight. Its always the opposite of what you expect. But yea, tomorrow night will be a different story. Probably some Rocky IV, Star Wars of course, and oh! can't forget about Tron! Now if only this laptop had a 3D card, then we'd definately be in business! :thumbup:

                    Come on man!, it's Rocky IV, it's not like I'm watching Rocky V which was totally BLAH!

                    BTW- Who took all the Mountain Dew and changed the channel to QVC?

                            Johnny Depp?...er, lemme see, ah, Donny Brasco would be great. How about instead of Rocky, I bring The Breakfast Club? An interesting story about some people stuck in a place that they don't want to be at...nevermind, I don't feel like watching a film that reflects my life. Perhaps I'll bring the Disney Treasures DVDs, Disneyland and Tomorrowland. Oh! I can also bring 2001: A Space Oddessey!

                            Tron
                            Tomorrowland
                            2001
                            hmm, and yet my co-wokers wonder why I'm majoring in Aerospace Engineering

                              Thanks for the links! I'll be making good use of those!

                              Yea, the whole porn and gamble thing I don't dig, so that's not a threat. But thanks for the warning anyways!
