this is getting old

...but I guess i will still post -- out of habbit perhaps, coupled with a handfull of boredome.

I thought id give you all a quick update. My fish are both dead. Kaput. Off to fishy heaven. The first one -- mortimer -- died about a month ago, at the hands (or should i say paws) of Admiral tibbits. I woke up in the morning, went to the kitchen, and saw mortimers tank, empty, and gravel all over the floor. Though i looked, I didnt find poor mortimer scaley body anywhere in the kitchen, and i assumed that tibbits ate him. I know it was tibbits cause Minouche is too fat to jump up onto the counters. Later that day, i found Mortimer on the carpet, when i stepped on him. Yay, that was fun. Our second fish, Demitrius, died just this last week, at the hands of our friend V (that is his nickname, and thank god, cause i cant spell his real name). V was our house sitter for the first few days me and christopher were away. He called a couple of days after we left. The following is an excerpt from that conversation.

V: I think your fish is dead.
Chris: why do you say that?
V: its just sitting on the bottom of the tank
Chris: It does that alot, its just a betta, they dont really do very much.
V: oh ok then.

The next day i got a call from my friend jen who was looking after the house and kittens for the last few days we were away. The following is an excerpt from that converstation.

Jen: Your fish is dead. I flushed it.

So aparently V was right, the fish wasnt just resting at the bottom of the tank. It was indeed, very dead. Well, you never can expect too much from house/pet sitters i suppose. At least he didnt kill one of the kittens.

Christmas travel plans

I think ive told most of you through facebook, but for those that i missed, i thought id let you know that Im comming home for a visit in 2.5 weeks. I get in on december 4th and am leaving the 18th. Ill be there long enough to get sick of you all, and the rain -- long enough for omaha to look appealing again. Other than that, things are the same here. Quiet, the weather is great, getting cold finally but, its been sunny almost every day for the last 2 months. Ill take the cold over grey pissy rain. I heard that the weather is ok in van, no snow yet, unlike last year, so im keeping my fingers crossed that itll stay nice until i get there. Next week, were going to Christophers mom's place for thanksgiving, were staying for just under a week, and then i leave for van a few days after we get back. Then a few days after i get back here, were going back to Christophers moms place for the holidays (or at least part of em). Im excited to be doing so much travelling -- and to get to go home close enough to dec 25th to feel like i was home for christmas. See those of you that live in van soon! Those of you that dont, i hope all is well... happy thanks giving to the americans.

well informed

You know, I have a bad feeling about this post, cause, like other created in boredom, they just dont have that entertaining quality that I hope for. So, consider this a warning.

Hello all of you left reading my blog. Its been a while, so I thought Id say hello. The zombie in the attic gives its greetings as well. I swear its scratching in code. It says some nights that it wants to feed on my supple brain. Others it just says that its bored. Thanks to you all for your great suggestions on how to rid my paranormal phenomena, but, i have decided not to do anything about it. I dont want to anger it, it has not been malicious to me, so, why should i be malicious to it? Secondly, it was here first, so... possession is like 9/10th of the law right? According to the zombie, this is their apartment.

Things in omaha are quiet... mostly cause C is out of town at the moment. But, we have the house set up finally, and i know i know, i need to take some pictures of it for you guys. Those of you that are still reading this blog at wont have the good fortune of seeing these pictures, as i have given up posting them here because it takes to much effort. Instead, as some of you know, i finally caved, and made a facebook account, where its super easy to upload pictures. So, if you wanna see some T pics, you have to get a facebook account (ahem Tom and Mel).
Anyway, Omaha. Its been kind of stormy here, and its pretty cool watching the lightening and stuff. But, this morning, an alarm woke me up, and it wasnt my clock alarm. The tornado warning siren was going off. It was a freeky way to be woken up thats for sure. But, the house is still here, and I dont see a yellow brick road so, all is well.

For those of you following my grief with my citizenship application, I have found out some more information about this process. A few months ago, they changed the prices of the different forms you have to send in. One of these forms has been jacked to 930$ from 340$! What a rip off. Man, they must be raking it in. That is just one of the changes, i was too shocked/disgusted/afraid to look to see what the rest of the price changes were. So, that kind of put a wrench in the spokes to say the least. Also, and im sure this will please my mother, if not more of you, i have found out that i need to have a passport, with a stamped entry in to the US to prove my arrival date. Ya ya, you know what this means -- i have to come home again. I have to get a passport, and then fly back here. Im thrilled to be able to see you all, but, im a little frustrated that i didnt just go ahead and get it the last time i was back. Although, i guess that wouldnt solve the problem im in, cause id still be coming back in order to fly back to the US to get it stamped. So, no date yet, but I will be coming back sooner or later.

The kittens are getting big, Minouche is a pig, and monopolizes the food dish. I put down 2 dishs, but he just eats out of what ever one tibbits is trying to get to. So, we have one kitty thats a lot bigger than the other. Plus, Tibbits is way more active than Minouche, so, well.. im preparing myself for Minouche to be a big Fat-Pat cat (fat pat, is my loving new nickname for him).

Well, thats it for my update. Hope all is awesome with you guys! take care! xxooo

omaha hauntings

There is some sort of supernatural phenomena occuring in the place we moved into. I think that its possible that a zombie lives in the attic... and just the other night, it was scratching to get at me. I swear it has to be a zombie, cause a rodent wouldnt have been scratching in the same room i was in, right above my head, and it would have scurried off when i hit the wall. It also wouldnt have scratched in the same spot for an hour and a half. I have come to the conclusion that it must be a zombie and not a ghost, cause why would a ghost scratch? would it not just float through the ceiling...? Also, although not as impressive as the zombie in the attic tale, the other night, we turned out all the lights and went to bed, but something awoke us around 3am. The dinning room light had been turned on (the room right out side our bedroom). Its happend 2 other times since, so no, we did not forget to turn out the light. Also, often, when you shut the bathroom door, after it shuts, it loudly pulls against itself, like some one is on the other side of the door pulling at it with one swift tug. So yeah, the house is haunted.. with zombies that have telekinesis.

Kittens galore

So, things are pretty much the same. I just wanted to let you all know that we are getting settled in ok, and just yesterday we adopted 2 kittens. They are brothers, and are a few months old. We have not yet named them, so if you have any ideas say so in the comment section. Man, I dont remember kittens being such hard work, but they are. They are into everything, dont sleep more than a few hours at a time, and are more needy than a co-dependent girlfriend. God help me, what have i done!?

Corn, Heat, and tornado warnings: a tale of nebraska

Hello all, I just wanted to let those who read this thing, if there are any of you left, know that C and I arrived in omaha. We found a cool place, and have been busy trying to find ways to fill it up. You probably could fit 2.5 of our last apartments in here, not to mention its got super tall ceilings so it looks even bigger.
The week we first got here, we stayed in a hotel while we looked for a place. We arrived at about 1am, so had no idea what the area surrounding the hotel looked like. The next morning, i drew the curtains to see that (and i shit you not), we were surrounded by miles of corn. I had kind of just assumed that everyone was exaggerating about the corn, but, apparenly they werent. The first week we got here, there was also a heat wave. Ive felt hot before, but not humidity like this. It was almost as if I was stepping into the bathroom somewhere in hell while the devil was taking a shower. Hot and wet. This week the temperature has subsided. But, only cause they are having some of the worst thunderstorms they have had in a while here. I have never seen anything like it... and I am almost certain that the extreemness of the storms are my fault. The first storm we saw, we watched from our car. It started a few miles away, and we watched as the fork lightning struck down about 20 times or so. Looked really awesome. That one came and went over head, and i was left saying to chris "that wasnt so bad, i thought it was gunna be more scary after what everyone said about the storms". Well, 2 days later, we were home when the next one hit. It was so bad that the sky turned so dark it looked like 10pm and it was 5. The lighting and thunder went on so long that it seemed like hours, and the sky lit up so much that the street light sensor thought it was day, and it turned off half way through the storm. About 30 minutes into it, I heard this siren, turned to Chris and asked what it was, and saw with his reluctance in tellign me that it wasnt any normal siren. Apparently it was a tornado siren. Weeeeeeee. But, things are well... miss you all. t

rollin' rollin' rollin'

Well the ball has started rolling, and like a snowball at the top of a very large hill, this sucker has got its momentum and its not stopping. The ball is moving.. I am moving -- quite literally! It just kind of hit me, the other day... when the moving company guy came to asses my house. Its very strange, cause i put in my moving request as Christopher was getting his travel arrangements for texas, so, i wasnt really thinking about my request. How it works is like this: I apply for a day that i want my crap packed and moved, and they confirm or deny that. So, i wasnt really thinking much about my move, cause I hadnt heard about my confirmation, and with Christopher gone, i just wasnt going to ponder it until i had my follow up meeting with the transportation office on base -- which isnt until this comming friday. This appointment is where im supposed to hear about my moving date confirmation. But, the moving company called, and like i said, they sent some one to come do the assessment to see what all i have to move... and they say i got the date i requested.. which means im homeless in less than a month. In fact, Im homeless in less than 3 weeks, cause i gave myself enough time to drive to omaha and look for places before the months end. The movers are comming the 26th, and all of a sudden i am wishing that i had booked it a few days earlier. Watch out for that snow boulder down below!!! Run! At least the military moves all your crap for you. They pack it and everything -- which is cool, and very odd and uncomfortable at the same time. So, that is me. How are all you? i SAID.. how are all of YOU???

Monday, June 25, 2007


Just to let you all know, Christopher passed his Dari test. Of those that were left in the class, they ALL passed the DLTP. Its the first time in the history of the dari program that there was a 100% pass rate for the DPTP. So, he offically leaves July 5th. One week this comming thrusday -- this thursday is his graduation. His mom and step dad are comming into town for it, and staying for a few days. Then we have 5 days to pack up all his crap and get him off to texas. Hell stay there for a month or so, then he goes to Washington state. We meet up in Omaha October 15. Pretty crazy.

Other than that, things are same old here. Just got alot of life arrangement type things that were working on. Putting in our moving request, change of base info at the base... stuff like that. Been looking for places in Omaha through craigslist. Yay craigslist. Thats us in a nut shell.. missing you guys.. post a comment or something sometime you jackasses.

in the loop

Howdy everyone... hope this post find you all well. Christopher has almost finnished all his tests, he only has one section left of the Farsi DLPT. His Dari test seems to have gone well (knock on wood), and we will know for sure by tomorrow afternoon. He has his graduation next thursday, and i believe his mother is comming into town for that. Blake left a couple of days ago. The weekend before he left we all went to the Santa Cruz board walk with 2 couples from Christophers class. It was very cool... rides right on a huge beach. Some really cool rides too. Some one took a couple of pictures, but im not sure if ill ever see them or what they are of, but if you want to see what it looks like at the boardwalk heres the link.
( Well thats about it, just wanted to keep you in the loop with the tests and all. Miss you guys..

playing tourist

So, its been a pretty full week, and first off let me say happy birthday to all my friends who have had birthdays in the last little bit. Happy birthday Kat, Cheryl, and sarah. Hope you all had great days, and got all the goods you hoped for. As for us, we've been playing tourist. Blake called last monday to tell us that he was flying out the next day to come see us. We went to san fran to pick him up, but his luggage went to san jose, so we stopped there to get his stuff on the way back. So, we've been hanging with blake, gone to the aquarium, the beaches, out to eat and what not.... Im hoping next weekend were gunna go to the santa cruz board walk -- rides and roller coasters and what not... Ive been trying to get Christopher to go for some time now, so its the perfect excuse. That, and if he passes his test this week, he will be gone in 3 weeks, so were running out of time. He starts his test tomorrow, and it goes until friday. He tests for the Farsi DLPT starting next tuesday, and it goes till thursday i believe. 2 weeks of testing, YAY!... i remember when i was horrified at my first 3 hour exam. I would have died to have tests so long they lasted 3 full days! So, anyway... thats what the deal is here. Hope all you vancouverites are enjoying the rain.. hehehe. Miss you!

A quick update

Hello everyone. I just thought id give you guys a quick update about whats going on here. Christopher is writing his last exam of his program today, besides the final proficiency exam. That exam, the DLPT, is what will determine where we go and when. His classes are just about done though, with a month to go until his formal graduation, and regardless of what happens with his DLPT he will be passing his program and will have earned college credit for it -- almost a whole BA in language worth of credit. His DLPT is scheduled for mid june i believe, and if he passes that he goes off to Texas for cryptology classes, and then Oregon for survival school. If he passes the DLPT he leaves for these other classes on July 5th, and is scheduled to be in Nebraska for 6 months of flight school on October 15 - where i will be allowed join him. If he doesnt pass the DLPT he goes on a retest status, where they give him 2 months to study his ass off and then take the test again. Of the 5 years that they have had this particular language program here, less that 100 have successfully graduated the Dari program -- and to make things worse, the failure rate of the Dari DLPT is one of the highest for all the languages they offer here on base. So, we will wait and see. Of course we are thinking possitively - and hoping for the best. I thought id let you all know so you could think good thoughts for us too. Hope all is well with everyone. Ill keep you posted about our plans.

Yes, i am awear that most of you are either not canadian or not old enough, and thus have no idea who, or what The Beachcombers was. Regardless, i thought it would be a good title for a post sharing my beach hiking pictures with all of you. With out further ado:

**Instert pourly speled titels hear**

You know what makes me sick? People that actually update their blogs daily -- and with interesting lengthy posts no less. I mean, seriously... who has the time or will to do that, let alone the insite to be able to think of something interesting to write about day in and day out?

Funny story, well.. i think its funny.. i was driving Christopher back to class the other day at lunch, and he was pestering me (in a joking way). After he starting poking me in the ribs i decided id have to pull over till he stopped. Im not a big fan of being tickled let alone while im behind the wheel. Anyway, after pulling over, TWICE... he still wasnt getting the picture, so while we were stopped i tossed his wallet out the car window. When he un-did his seat belt and got out of the car to get it i started to drive away. Now dont get me wrong, i didnt speed off and just leave him there, im not mean like that. However, i also didnt stop to let him back in. I did manage to slow down enough that he could jump in with out hurting himself.

Other than that, things are cool, well.. warm to be more exact. It was beautiful out today, and its looking like its gunna be that way all week. Its a good week for it, cause christophers twin brother is going to be flying into town tomorrow or the next day (hes flying standby -- good times). The last time he came it was just after christmas, and the weather was ok for winter, but it was still fairly chilly. Its georgous out now, so, thats cool.

K im out of things to say, like i said a few paragraphs ago, im just not that insitefull. Hope everyone is doing good. Im missing all you vancouverites like crazy.

what the hell..

So, I was checking my email today, and in the subject field there was an email titled "women: get your hair back in 4 weeks". I used to just delete these spam mailings but recently i have decided that i will be victorious over the spam mail -- and i have set out to unsubcribe myself from all these random lists that i magically appeared on. How i got on to a hair growth for women mail list i will never know, but that is besides the point. Anyway, I used to get like 20-30 spam emails a day, but i finally have weeded it down to 2 or 3. Its been less than 5 for a few weeks now, and no matter what i do, i just cant seem to get rid off all of them. Some of the tricky bastards dont even have an "unsubscribe here" link. But, all and all, i still feel as if i have won the battle cause, lets be real here, less than 5 junk email is truely a victory... is it not? Furthermore, I dont always get a ton of email, so on weeks where im not hearing from anyone, at least i can read about how i can get my hair back, or the classic, how to enlarge ones penis. I realize that none of this is spectacularly interesting, but, i feel like i havent made touch with any of you that may be left reading my blog these days. A few links and some pictures just doesnt seem to have that personal touch that my blog had at the begining of its creation. Originally, i sat down to type something totally different to you all, but checked my email before composing my post, totally lost my train of thought, and was left with this beauty. Enjoy...

here a deer, there a deer, everywhere a deer deer

I know ive mentioned to a few of you, if not on my blog generally, that we have alot of deer in monterey. These deer arent like any other, in fact, the ones on base wont move when you walk by them. They are all pretty fearless. But, its cool, cause you can get up close and check em out, which isnt something a city girl like me has had much chance to do. The other day, there were 2 young bucks grazing in our back lot and i snapped some shots of em through the window.

These nex shots are of a neighbourhood cat, stalking the deer.

But, the deer didnt fear the cat, and instead they decided to take a nap. If i was doctor sues im sure i could write a book based on that line. But im not, so ill just show you the picutres instead.

better late than never

So, as i had mentioned to some of you, about a month ago now, a group of us went on a tour of a lighthouse. It was cool to get out down the coast, it really is beautiful down there. The tour itself was.. well.. it was a tour. Im not really a big fan of tours, id rather just look at things on my own time, i hate waiting for a group, and im not really one for learning about the history behind whatever im looking at. I prefer just to see it. Ive had my stint in school, i feel like im done learning for some time. Other than that, and the 50hour a mile winds and the freezing weather, the tour was cool. I got a bunch of nifty picutres to post.

this one is a shot of the hill that the lighthouse is on taken from the highway. We had to park at the bottom of this thing, and walk up... into 50 mile an hour winds.

This is a shot of what the edge of the path that we were walking up looked like. In the brochure for the tour it said "do not chase objects or people over the edge of the trail" I personally think that that goes with out saying, as im sure you can see with this last shot.

This is just a shot of the coast from the lighthouse hill. And another shot of the rocks below us, more proof of why not to chase anything off the path.

Heres some shots of the lighthouse itself.

Happy birthday to christopher

Sunday was Christopher's birthday. It was a nice chilled day... we had cake (as you can see), balloons, and went out to one of those japanese places that has the grill built right into the table. Id never been to one of those places before, so it was pretty neat. They even sang a version of happy birhday, and brought us ice cream. They also had a full sized candle for C to blow out, on some wierd ass birthday podium thing -- and they gave him a great hat. They tried to get him to dance around to the birhday song, but he wasnt having any of it. All and all it was a good day.

does any one really listen?

I was leaving base today, and as always I said good bye to the gaurd working there. I always say something along the lines of "bye, have a nice night", or some rendition. Today, I said have a good night, and the gaurd said "good, hows it going?" I mean, seriously, does have a good night sound anything like how are you doing? Furthermore, who asks some one how theyre doing as they are going? "bye, how are you doing??" I didnt say anything back, but instead wondered the whole way home how often people just hear what they want to hear. Its not a new thought, but i went on that tangent for a few blocks before i realized that ive been here close to a year now, and go to base at the least 4 times a week... and i have never once had some one say something that made as little sence as that. In fact, i couldnt remember one time in the last few years where ive said something that was responded to totally inappropriately. So, then i spent the next few blocks thinking about how people have this ONE experience, but then chalk it up to an every day experience. THAT person didnt listen to me, so, no one really listens. Ya know what i mean?

Further more, Im sure that poor gaurd thinks, "what a bitch, I asked her how she was doing, and she didnt even look at me -- what a snob"

A bored housewife: a letter of complaint to Take Home Chef

Dear viewer relations,

I would like to make a comment/complaint about your show, "Take Home Chef". I used to watch this show all the time, and enjoyed it, until I started to notice that the people that Curtis was "taking home" were all particularly affluent people. I personally do not have anything against affulent people, but I find this frustrating when watching "Take Home Chef" for many different reasons. First off, there is the issue of representation. As I have already mentioned, it seems to me that the people Curtis are cooking with are, by and large, people that are of a higher socio-economic back ground. Hence, the show does not take a reflective sample of the population, but rather focuses on a specifically small sample. Unfortunetly, what this leads to is obvious: the creation of a show where the main characters are people that the majority of your viewers can not identify with. Even worse, not only can they not identify with the people on your show, but they end up disliking or even resenting these people that "need help". The whole premise of this show is to help people, and yet time and time again you select those who really have the means to help themselves, ingoring so many people that truely need the assistance, people who cannot afford to take a cooking class, or dine out in restaurants every other evening (unlike most of the people on your show). Never have I watched Take Home Chef and thought "well thats great, he really helped that couple out", but have often thought, "those people can afford their own personal chef, what on earth is he even doing there". The last show I watched, I turned off after the crew pulled up into this woman's drive way, in her brand new Lexus, to her towering eight bedroom home, which over-looked the ocean. I just find it distasteful, frustrating, and such a shame that you, as a programming entity as well as a helping body, can not effectively represent the population at large, and provide assistance to a group who are most able to find means to help themselves, while a majority of the population remains ignored.

Thank you for your time in reading my concern,
T*****A D**E

2 ton paper weight

Well... we've been experiencing some problems with our bronco. Whenever you use the clutch it makes this grinding sound, thats sort of reminiscent to the sound of a lawnmower going over a tin can. The breaks squeek. There is a bad oil leak. The break fluid drains out as soon as you fill it up. Smoke billows out from under the hood if its running more than 10 minutes. It makes a weird whining sound. So, yeah, theres a few things going on with the bronco. The other day, we were going on some light house tour with some people from class, and our car wouldnt start, and so we decided we should take it in.

Well.. long story short, everything that could be wrong with the thing IS wrong with it, and the mechanic went out of his way to explain to us just WHY it would be unsafe for us to drive it home. The owner and manager came to talk to us about how he "cant emphasize enough that they dont recomend that we drive it home". The blue book value of our bronco is 1200$ if its in perfect condition... and well as i have explained its far from that. The estimated cost of fixing just the most major things (ie the clutch and the breaks -- which by the way are pretty much totally out), is appz 3500$. So, alas, we now have a 2 ton paper weight sitting in our parking spot, collecting dust. At least we got home ok from the shop.

i dont have anything to say really .. I just saw this video, and thought some of you may like to see it - if you havent yet.

Im not technologically inclined like some of my friends (tom) who can just type a word and the word links whomever clicks on it to a certain site. I actually have to put the web address. Its less pretty but it works.

and so it was a trip to vancouver

Hello hello hello everyone in blog land. Like the new look? I figured, the new year deserves a new look, so i hacked off all my hair, changed my blog back ground, converted it to a new version (im no longer in beta version, whatever the hell that means), and due to a massive perplexion brought on by my frenchi friend mel, i also changed my blog name, to something that will suit me where ever i may end up. My new and improved blog name is now "itinerant_tee" and for those of you who arent scholars, this is what it means:

itinerant \eye-TIN-uhr-uhnt\, adjective:1. Passing or traveling from place to place; wandering.

(dont feel bad, i had to look it up)

So, death to cali t! Death to the old blog... and so long hair. I know its not the biggest picture, but i havent taken any but this one, since i had my hair cut. By the way, thanks Cheryl for the awesome clips. For those of you who dont know, or are totally stupid, that is my mom... Jerrie. (the spelling of my moms name is just for your Kat, as you seem to spell it more and more wrong everytime you try ;)

Vancouver was great. I cant tell you how nice it was to see everyone. Thank you rachel for comming to get me from seattle, and dont worry, you dont have to pay that speeding ticket if you dont plan on going down there ever again. Just think of it this way, I wont make you come back to seattle to get me next time if you havent paid the ticket off by then.

We had a nice little get together at my moms place, and pretty much everyone made an appearance. Even Tanya and scotty... i am totally highly impressed they made it, even if it was close to midnight. After they left, we broke out the trivial persuit pop culture, cause we are that cool, and played till after 1, and finnished off most of the grub (note to blog readers, rosy makes the best chocolate cake IN THE WORLD).
Here are some random shots from that night:

Ya ya ya... i know your thrilled to have your picture posted kat.. but in less you plan on flying down to california, theres really not one damn thing you can do about it... is there? hehehe.. no theres not.

Ha! dont let this picture fool you, neither of these two are sweet OR innocent. Just FYI.

We went to the hudsons landing one night, and though i cant speak for everyone else, i thought it was a blast! I think that may have been my favorite night in town... and thats not just because i got to kick toms ass at pool, but that sure helped. It was just all around a great night. Here is the hudsons landing:

After, we stopped by tom and mels new place so anita and i could see it. Totally cool place. Here is a shot of us, minus mel, on the way up to their suite.
So that, in a nut shell, was my trip to vancouver. There was a few coffees at the grind, lots of good food ( still cant believe there are 14$ salads at earls), and lots of laughs. On a serious note though, i have to say that it was sort of weird going back, I guess even though it hasnt been that long, it feels like its been forever since i had been there, and because so much has changed with me, i guess i was sort of expecting vancouver to have changed as well. On the other hand, i would have been highly upset if i had gotten there and everything was different. Ill say this, it was good to see everyone, and it was especially great to have some time with my mom. I even beat her at scrabble once! Nothing like growing up and beating your parents at the things that they taught you how to do. Feels good... feels damn good. Choke on that mom! hehehehe. Anyway. I love you all, and it was great to see you.

Oh yeah, i have one last thing to say to you guys (for old times sake):
