Day 2

Spending all shift listening to my favorite Christmas music-Trans Siberian Orchestra.  I think there's something wrong with me...

The Chief Gunner brought me a juggling kit today.  Bean bags and a book that has lots of cool tricks.

My opposites generated about 200 pages of documentation for me in less than 4 weeks.  Thats more than 7 pages per day.  It's a wonder they had any time to actually work.  Thank the heavens I'm a speed reader, or I wouldn't get to work for a week.

Our first drill is today.  I'm on a ventilation/boundary cooling team this trip.  Sure beats mustering and then standing around for half an hour waiting for the drill to end.  I'm ready to eat fire, baby.

The weather sucks.  Beaufort force 6 today and rising.  Gonna get rough for a day or so.  Too bad I have a couple of trainees who started out sick in calm seas.  They're fucked.

Later

Since I got seasick in the wave pool, I so sympathize with your trainees!!

Glad you made it safe there.
