So it was a shock when one of the people I "know" through catholicism posted from Trashcanistan that she'd been thinking seriously of eating her rifle. Fortunately she mentioned this in e-mail to her husband back in CONUSstan, who promptly got hold of people who got hold of the Army and her chain of command did the right thing by her. Finally. After making it pretty impossible for her in the first place. I hope somebody's career goes in the shitter over this, and that they wind up dying slowly under an overpass in Wyoming after being kicked out of the service. In the meantime, I guess she's going to be okay, but still...shit.
On the other hand, some of my other friends are having a good Hanuramakwanzmas season, which makes me happy.
Everything else this week is up in the air until I talk to people about stuff. And things.
