haha. Just put "snacks" and "magazines" and "socks" for contents. I'm curious whats in the box now! Fun.

Posting some more interesting stuff. As you can see, the Iraqis prefer to squat when going to the bathroom. They even have their own style porta-john. I didn't know this, so imagine my shock when I opened the door: "Where's the fucking toilet?" Then i realized why there was mud up on the sitting portion of our porta johns and empty water bottles everywhere down the hole. No toilet paper for them, folks. Never shake hands with your left hand, thats all I gotta say.

I moved into a new building this month. I'll put pics up soon. While I was building walls around the new buildings, I witnessed a new way to unload a dumpster. This is the excitement I have to rely upon around here. . . :)

We got rain for Thanksgiving, so its like one big construction site here. Clay everywhere. Everyone grows an inch from walking on a cake of mud stuck to their boots. In additon to standing Twalls up, my team has been laying down crushed gravel everywhere to much cursing from everyone as its harder to walk on, impossible to ride bike on, and causes injury from time to time (rolled ankles, etc.). No one is cursing us  now. They're asking for more left and right. I'll get to it sometime next week. . . . :D

I got your package. Thanks for the magazines!!! Those Goodguys mags are awesome, I've never seen them before. Good pictures! Was there anything that didn't make it into the mail due to a customs declaration form? I see the wink.

I went to the Good guys show in Pleasanton, CA last summer. Quite the show. $13 to get in!!!!!

I moved into my new room. Pretty quiet, cozy, much nicer and more secure than a big tent. It was a new building so I had to sweep all the construction dust out first and vacuum everything twice. Set the fire alarm off and everything. See the Twalls and bunkers? My work. I'd buy more of those reading lamps to aim at the ceiling for ambiance, but who am I trying to romance around here? Still, it would look cool.

I hope you all had a good thanksgiving. They gave us quite the meal here. There is really nothing that any of my family members cook for Thanksgiving that I didn't have here. It was something else. Oh, there was sparkling grape juice instead of alcohol, but you know how that goes.
Anyways, thats it for now.
