a remote posting...

...from my friend Dave's apartment across the street from mine. I did some grilling earlier, after today's Portsmouth-Groton-Portsmouth roadtrip to reunite Dave with his PenisMobile. My roommate saw Live Free or Die Hard, and gave a hearty approval of the film.

The SDT has been here for three days, and it's just as bad as we expected. It reminds me of this diagram I saw in John Stossel's book Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity, in which the byzantine process for firing a New York City public schoolteacher is detailed. The process for getting work done within the confines of Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is equally difficult...or perhaps more so. And last night...well, it was bad. After we completed putting our reactor plant in the condition it'll be in for most of our time here, I had to stay up for almost two hours after my watch to accomplish an evolution that just had to be done then. In my personal experience, Maine's slogan - "the way life should be" - is inaccurate, at least in regard to the time I spend on Seavey Island.
