Apparently the fall look this year has a "military" component to it. I'm totally in fashion and I didn't realize it! :) The tag line is "the uniform look is anything but. this season it's modern and sexy." Now, since I do have to wear closed toed shoes, I can't go to outrageous with my accessories, but I think some heels would look really nice with our BDU's (battle dress uniform--our pants are made by the same people who make the military fatigues). Perhaps I will organize a fashion show here with the Ameriwear uniforms and it could be just like the runways that are highlighting military fashion....... It could be a great way to advertise NCCC.

In other news, I have been a bit ill. I think it could be due to the fact that last week I got about 5 hours of sleep per night and three of those days I was doing construction with Habitat for Humanity-- not easy work, let me tell you. It could just be allergy related, but my attempts to get the problem to go away haven't worked at all. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Our team name has changed. The "Phantastic Five" wasn't really cutting it for pretty much everyone. I'm not certain how it got voted into place, but no one was supporting it, or even refrencing it. We've come to an agreement on "Gold Rush." Personally, I like it-- it has a Cali ring to it, which always makes things better.

Speaking of Cali, I got myself into a bit of trouble with a North Carolinan. Our two teams were working together at the Habitat house and we got to talking as we were putting the tresses on the house using 2x4's as extended arms (quite the experience, I assure you). Anyways, he asked me where I was from and I said "Southern Califonia." Of course his response was enthusiastic. I, in turn, asked him where he was from. "North Carolina," he replied. "Oh," I said, with no enthusiasm. He took offense, in jest, but it was funny all the same. We both agreed to visit the others state since we had both never been to each others. To be honest, unless I end up there on a spike, I'm not sure I'll keep up my end of the bargain, but he is definetly planning on heading out to Southern Cali next summer. Oh, his name is Addison.

I went to a local bar on saturday night and it truly was a locals bar. A teammate has a friend from her hometown that works there and we went to meet up with her. The name, in case you're wondering, is "Buffalo South" and there slogan is "Where the locals roam." It was an interesting night. :)

Not much else to report, things are going well. Hope to find out where I'll be heading after training sometime soon. When I know--you'll know.

Grace and Peace.

I am glad the name changed as well! Gold Rush is much better! Nice to hear that you are at the height of fashion, hopefully it will stick and you can keep the same stuff for when you get back! :)
Love you, Cas

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
