Ah, back again.
Well, things have been flying by at their usual break-neck pace lately.
I've recently passed by board and have been qualified as Ship's Duty
Officer, which means I'll soon be able to stand duty on the forward end
of the ship, not just in the Engine Room. Also, our ship is getting a
new Commanding Officer soon, as our current Captain has reached the end
of his tour. The official change of command ceremony is this Friday!
Last weekend was the Submarine Birthday Ball, and I flew Gwen out so
that she could go to it with me. We had a very nice time, as I was
actually able to go this year. Last year, I came down with appendicitis
on the day of the ball, and so Gwen and I spent the evening in
the Hospital instead of on the dance floor! Hopefully, I'll be able to
post some pictures of the event soon, but what with all my work on the
boat and all of this Battlestar Galactica to watch, who knows when I'll
get it done ;).
