08 January 2006, Good food. We just got back from a meeting with Coalition Forces and stopping at the Kabul International Airport to pick up a couple of soldiers. While waiting at the airport, we went ahead and had dinner at the Thai restaurant. Tonight I was planning on having microwavable hamburger helper in my room, but instead had grilled chicken strips with peanut sauce and spring rolls. This was much better. They actually have those eating utensils that aren't made out of plastic. The cold spell is still here with temperatures hanging around 35 during the day and dropping into single digits for night time. I went to bed early last night, 8:40 p.m. and woke up at 9:30 p.m. to realize that the heat had gone off in my room. We have electricity hiccups every now and then and it's enough to shut off the heat pumps.
This morning was my cardio workout. Even though I'm officially off the fat-boy workout program I will continue it so I can do even better. I followed it up with some sit-ups before going back to work.
Mimi over at Mimi Writes has a couple of other blogs that she does, one is a site about dating. Well, she comes up with a list of comments people have posted, either internet dating or newspaper I'm not sure, but it's almost like Jay Leno's headlines segment. Well, she sends out the list and challenges us to come up with responses. This was my first one, but it looked like a lot of fun. We will have to wait a couple of days and see how I did.
Not much else to report on today, all was quiet. Be safe and have a good day.

Welcome to world of real food Sarge. Talking about the weather, sounds like Korea, there was one or two weeks when we did not see 10 degrees. The oil would get so thick in our 10 ton trucks that the starter would not turn over.

Have a good day sarge, stay safe.....

Sgt Dub, I continue to enjoy reading about your daily life in Afghanistan. I didn't realize it was so cold there, but that makes sense. It's nice there are daily concerns that make life interesting. I need myself to get back to the gym. I'm waiting for a chest cold to pass.

I continue to wish you luck, and may your days be as interesting but also uneventful as you wish.

I love Thai food! It's very similar to the Indonesian food with which I grew up, and since my parents aren't around to cook that for me (and I never learned), I eat Thai food. You post made me quite hungry - waa!

It gets cold here in the desert of AZ this time of year, but definitely not single digits. I don't envy your weather. So sorry to hear you lost your heat in the middle of the night - ugh.

Keep safe.

That was much better than my dinner! Stay warm and good luck with the dating comebacks. I tried it too. It was a lot tougher than I thought it would be.
