his last name is Jouck , that's all I know about my Belgium crush. he was at the table next to mine tonight so we were facing each other although different tables. that didn't keep me from stealing looks every opportune moment at his eyes or his big ole lips and when he smiles, those teeth. and his really nice nose and good big hands. of course all this in uniform....mmmmm
and a shout goes to the italain table at breakfast this morning. all roman gods. dark haired just right tan skin and dark eyes with every feature round and perfect, I'm serious i was looking at 3 or 4 of them different heights. one stood out because his fatigue pants fit him just right, all hard and round behind, and nice round bulge right in front. viva italia!
all right now for some personal blogging...... Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope no matter where you are or who you are with these next 2 days, that you are with someone you love and that you are in the holiday spirit enough to give a gift, if not then perhaps just giving yourself or your time to help others enjoy the season. it's funny, to my students the day is absolutely nothing to them of course. I'll be working normal tomorrow and then only the first half of Tuesday, so the students will like getting extra time off. although i'd rather keep teaching them because the test comes the same day regardless. ha
worked out my back and shoulders yesterday, and am actually getting acclimated pretty well to the altitude here ( 6800 feet above). Ran 2.5 miles today on the treadmill. always fun to see who's at the gym of course some guys there very day. last Friday i took a certification test to be able to drive on the runway across the airport to the other side where our school is, I guess we'll be taking turns driving and calling the air tower on the radio for clearance to pass through on the runway.
My students are pilots but remain very poor, kabul has not electricity after 8 pm, so they are very cold all night and without and light. Some students speak of doing homework to lanterns. i suggested candles today when they complained of the homework. I told them i understand life is difficult, and I only want to encourage them to do what they CAN do. We are on very good terms and they are all amazingly nice men, all older than me actually but completely respectful. They do not like the book quizzes but i keep telling them, dont' worry I will prepare you. its very rewarding to be in my classroom just teaching and teaching, time goes by very fast.
down time at the base if cool because I can go to the gym, and then eventually go to the mess hall for dinner.
Tomorrow there is Christmas market in the UK tent, and then the 25th we will be free after lunch. There is special church service planned at 3pm in the chapel and then a special Christmas dinner begins at 4pm for the base. should be interesting because I know it's a big party drinknig nht for the Europeans on base. I plan to get online that night and find my family online to chat with, and then they are supposed to email me pics of them unwrapping the gifts I left etc.....
again, happy Holidays to all readers! This last weekend was funny going to work and teaching each day because in the states, i know I'd be trying to do a hundred things the weekend before Christmas normally. ha.
