Why is it that I keep telling myself that I'll update this silly thing, and then, it's one thing and another and it's been three weeks gone before I know it?

I've not really been doing that much, but I have been playing around with a new app on my iPhone, called "Hipstamatic" and I rather love it.  (Also, just as an aside, Firefox now recognizes iPhone and app in spell check.  That's amusing.)

Hmmmm...I'm willing to so shorter updates but would that annoy folks too much?  Is one long infodump better?

Anyway, have some pictures.  Or don't.  LJ is telling me they're too big to upload.  WTF?  Hmph.  Fine, then, I'll put them on Flickr.

I keep hoping my love of photography will come back here Real Soon Now.  Maybe not doing so much of it at work will help.

Oh yeah, this weekend is the first drill with the new unit.  We'll see how it goes, but I'm nervous as hell.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to fight for a spot of my own, and to avoid becoming the unit's newest paperwork bitch.  Yay.

Good riddance.  Bad rubbish.  You get the idea. 

No, I don't wanna see pictures, thanks.  Dead bodies are dead bodies are dead bodies and if you've never actually seen one, shut up and take the SEALS word on him bein' dead, okey-dokey? 

Besides, we're *still* supposed to be wearing the white hats and we don't need to ogle and sneer at a dead man.  That gives him WAY too much power, even after death, and we should want to gloat over his death about as much as we would gloat over the death a single roach.  Meh.  I am NOT saying his death isn't important, but we shouldn't *gloat* and we shouldn't be celebrating.  My opinion, of course, yours may vary.

All I really feel is a sense of...well...justice, maybe.  A relief that at least his particular strain of malevolence is gone, but I am not naive enough to think that his ideological heirs are not waiting in the wings.  Oh, and it's nice that people are actually realizing that maybe, just maybe, Pakistan ain't exactly the stalwart ally they pretend to be.  Ya think?
