14 September 2009

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me?

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.

-John Lennon Paul McCartney

Changes, for better or worse, continue to land like unexpected fruit pies falling out of the sky at F.O.B: Y.F.

Did you know that you can only get Starbucks Oatcakes in the state of Hawaii?
Did you know that saimin costs money ? ( along with everything else)
Did you know that Ketchup is Catsup ?
Did you know that some people insist on no anchovies? Shame on you, heathen bastards.

With everything that is coming (and even the things that aren't), i will continue to write objective, un-biased, and scintillating tripe that some call "writing", and others call "swill".
This is for the sole benefits of the residents of F.O.B: Y.F and those amongst you on the internet willing to stomach the journey, stream of Consciousness writing... or what i like to call the venomous blathering that spews from my fingers and toes-Ready at once to peel the facade of mother Internet! Willing to brave danger at every corner of the WWW...

oh wait.

The captain has turned off the fasten seatbelts sign, you may roam about the internet at will.

No Surprises

A heart that's full up like a landfill, a job that slowly kills you, bruises that won't heal...
-"No Surprises"

i'd figure that a quote from a goth-y, angst ridden lyric might be a welcome break from the normal torrent of butterknife sharp wit around here. Today is one of the yearly markers here at Forward Operational Base Yamhill Freedom. What is it? Why it's national tune your guitar to low B day, Johnny!

Things have been a little slow at FOB:YF, the charges have been sent to other ranches for training, leasing or general boarding. That all changes as of Today. i will be the first to admit that the winter prep tasks before us seem a bit daunting, but it has to get done. While it was a nice break in routine, FOB:YF is missing something without our one horsepower friends.
