ripped off of Aussieliscious.........enjoy and then go check out his site!

This may not be true..............

There is something I've noticed in all the international military guys this week that seems maybe a little different than guys in the states. But I think most of this has something to do with dealing wtih all the closet feelings of feeling less macho because of gay stereotypes etc etc.
anyway, I was thinking about how when I look into the eyes of these guys I don't feel like I'm being immediately evaluated or judged on which side of the fence I'm on when it comes to sex.

is that to say, that with American guys I feel like they are constantly trying to label me straight or gay, and does this society indeed deman that we choose and identify as one or the other.
And I was thinking do I feel comfortable with that, or am I afraid that I lose some sort of respect or "in" with the guys or trust or put into a different club...etc. Well of course it shouldnt' be that way and most likely is isn't, those are just thoughts and feeling inside I've considered .

But there is something in the eyes of these international men I'm working with this week, that seems open and honest and direct and non judgemental. They seem to see me as a person and a man first. If that makes any sense. so real. I'm not sure yet what I want to to call it, but it is something that the all around american good ole guy has, that really great guy everyone likes and he's confident and nice and sincere etc, or what the salesman learns to fake. something like that.

I'm enjoying my day getting to knwo the students and practice teaching them, and the more you treat them as equal the more they are just as friendly. we met all the Afghan students yesterday and they were completely nice and freindly and motivating to us.

FUN fun fun fun

so I'm tearing up this town!
San Antonio is a great place, so spread out and all, lots of tex-mex flavor, that's the food and the men. ha
had an excellent weekend doing a lot of things around downtown mainly.
was up too too late last night, in fact didn't come home at all, and was showing up to lunch with my team here downtown at the riverwalk at 11:30 in the same thing I wore out last night. oops.
All day yesterday ran around SA shopping some, and worked out on the gym on base instead of the Y. I have to say the gym on base has the type of guys you'd expect to see...........ALL good.
legs sore today.
actually met a guy online that was in the same quarters I'm in on base, that was cool. he was a commander about to take some troops back to Iraq today.....hmmmm
I have a lot of thoughts on the people in San ANtonio, I'll try to make a post later.
One thing I can say is that they drive like crazy on the highway here.
I'm getting to know my way around pretty good.

one more thing, this guy from arjhizaban or something like that was in the laundry area yesterday, picture dark haired light skinned smooth skinned guy tall and totally buff like a swimmer. anyway, he looked damn good in a tishrt and cargo shorts and flip flops, well anyway, he has this slash on his inner forearm, like 2 or more inches long and about 3/4 or more wide, and he had wrapped it up in a toweel and was then jsut let it scab over. and I was freaking out telling him he HAS to see a doctor and get that stitched back together, and he was saying nah it doesn't hurt, and maybe tomorrow, and I said tomorrow is SUnday and difficult to see a doctor, go TODAY. crazy guy. but hot guy.
