We based this year's tree on the pie. Unfortunately the red, white and blue LED lights, which look awesome in real life, tragically don't come out well on camera.


So for that reason I took closeups.



Three equally valid symbols of America: Flag. Eagle. Elvis in Santa hat.

And female empowerment. And/or high heels. In fact there was only two votes for flat shoes, and one of those was me voting in my own poll so that I could see the results (is there any way around that?)

Anyway, now I am watching NCIS while I try to work up the energy to clean up after yesterday. Which reminds me that when I was getting my military ID here we accidentally went to the wrong building and wound up in the corridor next to the local NCIS office. We could tell it was the NCIS office because there was an A4 sheet of paper stickytaped to the wall with "NCIS" printed on it, and an arrow.

I guess what I'm saying is, I feel sorry for people that go into their fields based on what they have seen on TV shows.

I really wish I could write more about all the wackily amusing security conditions and breaches at the local base, but unfortunately that would probably be unethical.

There was that time I rescued a kitten from a poisonous spider, and the time I secretly saved the earth from Romulans. Nothing I have done, however, will ever come close to comparing to this.

  • I am very excited to be living in a non-urban area for the first time in... ever, really. Probably a little over-excited. I can't help it, though. We are surrounded by farms, and it's the first place I've lived that fresh local produce is widely available. Like blueberries. We got so many blueberries I had to make a pie out of them. And I don't want to brag or anything, but it was the greatest pie in the history of the universe.Notice how I didn't waste time on a full-on pie top. It would have just detracted from the taste of the blueberries.

  • The wildlife here is goddam terrifying. Okay, Australia has a lot of deadly creatures, but mostly they are very small and unobtrusive. We don't really have many large common land animals in the wild. The only exception is kangaroos, but they're not really scary looking at all; they mostly just hang around looking dopey. But here we went into a hunting store (heh) and they had a stuffed cat that was THE SIZE OF A BUS. And I was like 'they don't have those in this state, right?" BUT THEY DO. AND ALSO BEARS. I have been told I am safe because I am not on the mainland, and there is nothing larger than coyotes here, but I am going to play it safe and not leave the house from now on.

  • Speaking of wildlife, there is an eagle (hawk? I don't actually know the difference) that lives in our backyard that makes eagle noises. I didn't know those noises were real! I thought they were a TV sound! I am thinking about naming him, but I can't think of a name other than "Mr Pointynose" or "Eagle McEagleson."

  • Despite this somewhat rural setting, there is still a Wal-mart about 10 minutes drive away where we can stock up on like..... 87 different brands of hand soap. Sometimes when I am trying to buy something here I just break down and go into a thousand-mile stare, because there will be several dozen more varieties to choose from than I am used to, and I haven't heard of any of them. This must be how people in Eastern Europe must have felt after communism fell.
