    I try not to complain too much about stuff except a steam-blowing rant every now and then. The last time I truly complained was...tonight, when I got soaked in thickened block whitener. If you know what that is, you're probably going *ick* or something similar right now. After boot camp and a summer at a poorly run scout camp (and if you think you know summer, try 100+ highs and saturation humidity almost every day. Yeah, Iraq's hotter, but at least it's a 'dry heat'), everything else is quite lovely by comparison. Press on, fair soldiers. I feel for ya, and I appreciate ya. I really do.
