It's that time again... where we're gonna be watching Red Eye exclusively on the DVR so we can fast-forward through those gotdamned hoodie-footie and Vermont teddy bear commercials. I me some technology, which also tends to keep my blood pressure at a reasonably healthy level.
Speaking of V-Day... I got this in the mail today:
The former objects of my affection would have had my head if I bought them sumthin' like a mixer for V-Day. Unless she specifically asked for one, of course. There IS that particular exception. I got curious while looking at the above and wondered what the goin' rate for perfume is these days, so I went, looked, and got confused. Note:
I understand the difference between cologne and perfume, but both items 1 and 5 above are billed as "Eau de Parfum spray." Yet the 3.4 ounce bottle is MUCH cheaper than the 1.7 ounce version. Bad ad copy, perhaps? Apropos o' not much... Taylor Swift is pretty proud of her smell, ain't she?
There's nothing new or interesting from the Usual USAF Source this morning, but there IS some news on the USAF home front. It can now be revealed that SN1 is off for his third tour to the desert (not counting TDYs and Desert Storm) this coming summer, where he'll take command of an aircraft maintenance squadron at Al Dhafra AB in the UAE. His new assignment makes me pretty happy as a father, seein' as how he won't be subject to mortar or rocket attacks, unlike the places he served in his previous two tours in the AOR. I should say there's significantly less chance of nastiness, because we remember stuff like the Khobar Towers bombing. Rumor also has it there's beer to be had in the UAE, too. That's a Good Thing.
