Q: Who do you admire and why?
A: A lot of people. A comedian who went by the name Bill Hicks. On one hand, he was funny, but his comedy was more of a means to an end. He was very passionate about is views and the problems he saw with today's world, and he wasn't afraid to get his point across, no matter how bad the audience might take it.

Q: What else do you do during/after work?
A: I've been playing a lot of shooter type games online on Xbox360. I lose a lot. I also spend way too much time on this computer, watching videos on youtube, talking to people, or reading about whatever. Wikipedia is awesome for that.

Q: What's your opinion of the hospital, PX, etc?
A: I've gone to the hospital a couple of times when I've been really sick with big ol pissed off tonsils and/or strep. If its really bad, there's a decent chance of being put on quarters and being prescribed some decent painkillers, so that's a plus. Who DOESN'T like to sham out of work, watching cartoons in a near comatose state?

The PX is ok. I walk down there when I get bored. I was pissed off because they didn't seem to have a DVD called Waking Life that I'd probably love. Good place to get your hair cut, and they actually have Taco John's, a restaurant we have back home, so that's pretty cool too.

Other than that, I really never do anything else on post. I am a very boring person, hence my always whining and prattling on about being in limbo. My next step is to buy girl pants, wear eyemakeup and grow my hair into a fauxhawk, listen to Hawthorne Heights and cry while I complain to my livejournal.

Q: Where off post have you gone and what things have you seen that caught your attention?
A: Been to Seattle a couple times. Plus there's a few bars around here. Not a fan of the Schooner. Haven't been to Cowgirl Up in a while, and don't miss it. The Swiss isn't too terribly bad. Seattle has better bars, and Vancouver, CA is awesome.

We camped on Mount Rainier once. Hit up the Space Needle a couple times. Also went to that sci-fi museum not far from there. I wanted a picture of Donatello, and some dick wouldn't let me. I even turned the flash off. Tyranny.

Hooters is always a "Why Did I Come Here?" experience, but meh. Borders is a good place to chill, but without a car, I don't get out much.

And who can forget Fox's? Every Joe knows what Fox's is. For those of you who don't, its a strip club. You go there and pay money, and you get to see naked ladies. Amazing huh? And if you fork over enough cash to completely fill your gas tank, you get an unfulfilling lapdance. Awesome! Its awesome to see new privates come here. I took one kid to Fox's just to watch him blow an entire paycheck. Its true, I'm a bad person. Fox's is another one of those "Why Did I Come Here?" places, but every now and then we needed a little depravity in our lives. And I wasn't 21 until just last fall.

Q: What memorable moments have you had with other soldiers? Civilians? Dig deep!
A: I haven't done much dating around here. Scandal follows Joe everywhere, especially when women are concerned. And with MySpace, its even more out of control it seems. Joe shops online for women. Or maybe the women shop online for Joe, who knows. But one guy I know once got drunk and offered my girlfriend at the time a wonderful night of tantric sex. I laughed.

There was one time where I met a girl who worked at Spencer Gifts, and I started BSing with her (I had taken a cab to the mall because I was so unbearably bored that I thought I might puke blood). She seemed pretty damn cool, and a few weeks later I ran into her again, and she invited me to some party at some college. I think it was University of Puget Sound, but I really don't know and don't care. It was pretty cool. I actually didn't even drink, because I was still enrolled in ASAP, and I'm dumb like that. Watched a guy do a keg-stand for a pretty damn long time, and he waited until the cheers subsided to throw up all over the place.

They had a DJ in the room downstairs, and people sort of raving it up. I didn't know if anyone was on X or just alcohol and/or weed (ha, yeah didn't touch that either). But it was pretty cool. Something that I really never see. And then outside, the girls had a wrestling contest. It was held on a big blue tarp, and the girls were given a healthy coat of baby oil. How awesome is that?

Q: How does your family feel about you being in the Army?
A: I don't really ask them about it, but they're proud. They never fail to mention that. When I was talking about enlisting, they were the voice of reason, asking me if I knew what I was doing. Of course not, that's why I'm here [laugh track]. I think they're a little worried, but that's only natural. They're actually really supportive. My dad has life outlook/work ethic that you do what needs to be done, and there's no point in bitching or feeling sorry for yourself or trying to get out of it. Aside from the bitching, I've done an ok job of adopting that I think.
