Toodles, yo

So my brother totally ditched out on ANOTHER summer in the PNW.

Apparently, summers with his seesters are on his lists of avoidance because not only has he been elsewhere serving our country for the two summers since I moved here, now he went and signed himself up for a year in Afghanistan.


It's hot there.

And ugly.

Plus you know, that whole "war" thing that's been going on for a while.

He left this morning.

It's going to be fine, though. He's like 7 feet tall and about as big as a humvee, so I'm not all that concerned about his safety. People generally stay out of his way.

Then again, giants are typically slow to move on account of the fact that each arm and leg is about as big as a small child...

But yeah, he'll be fine.

Still going to miss him, though.

But hey, y'all know what that means, right?


The good kind not the boring ones.

Uh, and feel free to make suggestions. I will more than likely put anything in those packages.

(This is normally where I would post a lovely photo of my brother, but I don't have any of those due to the fact that I sort of broke my computer. I think it has a virus. Or else it's haunted.)

So, I totally just saw this. Big as a Humvee huh? Well, I suppose there's some truth to that. You should see some of the looks I get from the Afghans. Colonel Hamza calls me John Cena (he's old, I don't think his eyes work properly). And they all call me Yak-Do. Dari for 1-2. I miss you guys too. But I'll be home for Labor Dave Weekend!

I'm going to dress like a hippie, only with less leg hair and more showers.
