Christmas anyone...........


last night I went to a concert here on base by the Norwegian army, it was a ten piece ensemble,wind and brass and drums. and a lady singer. they performed silent night, and then some norwegian traditional Christmas tunes, and then she sang "Bie mir bist du schoen" and then she went full opera and sang the song from Carmen. next it was instrumental "sleigh ride" and the trumpet guy got the horse sound at the end perfect! and then in typical dorky euro fashion she ended with "when you wish upon a star" as a Christmas wish of following our dreams. it was very disney. over all great time and I spent a lot of tiem talking to the same tall Belgium dude I had breakfast with yesterday morning. Tonight I'm looking forward to the norwegian magician act.


anyone listen to Christmas music much? my all time favorite is "Charllie brown Chirstmas", go out and get this cd now. it sperfect for inside warm when it cold, wet, or dark out during the it holidays. I can listen to it over and over and over. I'm really missing my house and my roomate right now, it would have been our first Christmas.... ha ha, nah j/k. I do miss the house though.

yawn..........


rude awakening............

got woken up last night to shouts in the hall of "incoming, move away from the windows"...
it was middle of the night, 1 a.m. and then they come back by and keep yelling " incoming, everyone downstairs" ... so I jump out of bed, fumbling for what should I put on, i decided jeans, strip off my pj's I'm sleeping in, throw on some jeans commando style, and throw on a seatshirt and coat. sockas and puma sneakers. We all go downstairs and they get account of everyone, then say turn off all lights. All the officers here are in their IBA ( individual body armor), but not us teachers because we shipped ours here and its not here yet....
anyway, the ISAF base military police drive by with a siren on their truck and tell us everyone needs to go to the bunkers. SO we all go to the bunkers, half the group has to go to another because people are already in there and we fill it up with 40 max. dang it was cold in there waiting for ever with the base sirens going off every 15 minutes. half of them in there were belgian soldiers, and some of 'em would take tunrs standing near the door way smoking a cigaretter. also a few french in there, one italian and canadian, and two icelandic older ladies. and this one american contractor who was older and HOT and was fireman and owns a bar on base ( we are going to research what that means or what he does etc...). so only the American servicemen had on the body armour.
the fireman dude had the phone to the radio to air and kept calling in the number of people waiting outside our bunker and they'd tell him where to send the people to fill up another bunker with room. anyway they were joking a lot at one point about how this guy was going to have to hook up to this major standing next to him, lots of joking, the iceland chick at one point said, yes i'd like to watch. ha ha, of course many guys in there said, eww gross. ha ha, although they'd joke too whent he lights went out like "mm skoozi skooozi"... a line from the movie Euro trip, which the guys here on base have all seen several times and love.
Anyway, over all i hated it because I was getting cold in only jean although my top was warm, my feet and legs were getting cold. plus i killed my legs in the gym yesterday so it sucked having to stand up for an hour and a half, at 2:30 am we got the all clear to return. went straight back to sleep.....
We found out this morning it was due to some intelligence about a threat, although they said it turned out to be not any threat after all. better safe than sorry I suppose.
made for good conversation this morning with people on base i will say.

more shirts of in warm weather.....







days off...........

there is a muslim holiday here called "eades" so we are out of school today and tomorrow, which means 4 days free. i'll be on the internet a lot and watchign tv in the lounge here. also workouts and meals. thats about it. They have a concert tomorrow night, and then a magician performing the 20th. should be intersting. I sat with some italians yesterday, nice conversation and jokes. always fun making contact with whatever country here.

oh here's some news, yesterday we had to go to school late because on the afghan side of the base there was machine gun fire ( our school is on the other side of the runway on the afghan base side) so we had to wait about half an hour before leaving to see what the deal was. finally had the all clear and my students told me later, it was a suicide bomber attempting to come in the gate on base, and he was shot down and killed. some 14 y/o kid. my students told me it was prolly an arab or pakistani... but whoever it was, obviously some poor kid brainwashed by the taliban. sort of sad, although of course we wish to remain safe. My boss says he was shot down about the same place on the sidewalk where we were all standing around last week outside the airport gate with our luggage waiting for transports to take us to the lockheed martin compound when we first arrived. wow. I'm glad I'm living and working on base. I'm waiting for my body armour to arrive (we shipped it UPS from ft benning) and we cant' leave base until we have our armour. otherwise i coudl go check out the other bases in the city, which means american food, and just change of scenery in general.

was 3 days and counting last night, took an extra long shower if you know what I mean, and I tell ya what after waiting more than 3 days, I'm standing there in the shower completely at attention and feeling like a freaking porn star..... but i have good self control and once or twice a week should be fine for me. although the more I run and workout the "healthier" i feel .....ha
