Weird dream...

I was dreaming of probably some future Veg out since all the veggie crew were there, and we were all staying at someone's house but it wasn't really clear who's house it was. We were all around the pool in the house's back yard, and then all of a sudden, the sky started changing into some psychedelic colors and tornadoes started coming towards the house o_O But right before the tornadoes made it over to the house I woke up...

I shouldn't be worried bout it too much, but I sometimes get a sense of deja vu every so often and then realize that I had dreamed of it before. Hopefully there won't ever be any deja vu with this dream...

Museum for the Dun x 3 at heart

One of the unexpected perks for having my office at Aberdeen Proving Ground is the outdoor tank museum, which I had driven by every day this past week, so today I brought my camera over and took a bunch of pictures of the various tanks that were on display.  I managed to get pictures of about 60% of the tanks on hand, so I'll have to make another trip next time to get more, but it's pretty cool to see the wide variety of tanks they have on display.

Settling in...

After driving from Ohio to PA yesterday to stop and pick up some stuff at my parent's house, I drove down to MD today to start setting some things up in the new apartment. First thing was to pick up the mailbox key for my mailbox since the post office had to change the lock so the previous user can't hijack my mail. I had filled in a form at the post office about a week ago to have my mail forwarded, and I was glad to see that the forwarding was working as I got an electric bill for the Ohio apartment :P

The Maryland heat continues to beat down today, but fortunately, half of my apartment is below ground, so there's some extra insulation to keep my apartment shielded from the heat. Most of my stuff has been unboxed (except for the books), and I've found that I probably brought a bit more stuff over than I comfortably have room for (the BBQ grill is taking up a bit of the kitchen), so it looks like my parents'll have to take some stuff back when they come down this weekend.

I would drive 1000 miles...

It's been quite the weekend as I'm trying to get the cove in Maryland set up. The weather decides to try and make things difficult by providing Maryland the hottest day in June history this past Saturday, but fortunately for me, my apartment is halfway underground, so it has some natural insulation from the elements. The mover were suppose to come last Thursday, but they had called last Wednesday saying they would come on Friday. But Friday rolls around and my parents and I go down to bring some things from my parent's house PA and wait for the movers, but the movers call saying the moving truck broke down, which means my stuff wasn't arriving till Saturday.

To pass the time, my parents and I drove over to Delaware to go to the Christiana Mall, which excited my mom since Delaware doesn't have any sales tax. But how they get you is by setting up 2 toll booths so you end up $10 to go to the mall :P

8 PM rolls around on Saturday night and the movers show up and quickly unload all of my stuff. So everything arrived, but I'll take the next weekend to set everything back up. Now I'm back in Ohio to take care of some other errands before heading to work on the 16th.

New Apartment: I haz it

The new cove in Maryland has officially been signed for. It's a bit smaller than the Ohio cove when you compare the kitchen and living room, but it's way more than enough for me to live with, and there's an extra bedroom as well if anyone decides to visit. Nice thing about this particular apartment is that gas and water are covered utilities, and it's about a 5 minute drive to the base where I'll be working at.
