Complicating Compliments

Compliments are funny creatures. Depending on who gives you a compliment you have to behave in a certain manner... If an attractive guy tells a woman that he finds her attractive, she has to either be modest or completely vain... Take me for example... I am one of the more modest people you will ever come across and yet when ever anyone compliments my writing I get as shy as a school girl with a crush on the Varsity Quarterback, and at the same time I want to ask them a hundred different questions... What did you like? Did it make you laugh? Did you laugh at the right parts??? Do you have any ideas on how I could make it better??? And that isn't even considering the people who read what I write and have no opinion...Infact I think those people make me even more nervous. I mean did I write something you found offensive...(come to think of it this particular post might have some questionable material later on...) Did you think it was dull??? Are you just a mean person with out a soul??? Another odd thing about compliments is giving them. Take for example The Crazy Haired Princess at Duke... I truly thought she was one of the most attractive women on the whole post. But how do you express something like that with out being that weird guy with the goofy grin... "uh... uh... I uh thought you look good" And no matter how many times I go over it in my head and how great it sounds the second it escapes my lips it will sound like that...Or worse. There is a KBR woman here at Scania (haven't learned her name yet) That I'm going to nickname "Off Limits" That name suits her for a number of reasons 1st she again is an attractive woman on a post with scarcely any women to begin with. (although it is easily 4 times that of Duke) Secondly she looks very similar to an Ex-girlfriend who, with out going into any details was very, very "off limits" Any way she is very attractive and is very aware of it... The KBR personnel wear civilian clothing and... She dresses very well. And I have no idea how to even approach her... So like the Crazy haired princess, I admire her from afar. So I decided I am starting a new foundation (Warning Explicit Lyrics) I'm going to call it Cheez its... Which is CHSSHTS= civilians Helping Single Soldiers Help Them Selves. It will basically consist of Attractive Women & Men (there are female soldiers too you know) sending letters and photos of them selves so that single soldiers can meet new people and possibly meet when they come back to the states... I'm not only the Founder of Cheez its I'm also a member! So when I first came up with that it was way more explicit, I decided to clean it up. Aren't you proud Disney could Sponsor my blog and not cry. So before I forget.. The Sexy Idahoan is on his way back home I think he should of made it by now... So that's good for him two weeks of peace and quiet... Away from this little asylum. He missed a little more action similar to last month... We had an American Soldier get cut off the main route and he ended up plowing into our site... He was pulling a trailer carrying water in a 3000 bladder and it went everywhere, this was like two days ago and it is still soggy out there. This is the third time something like this has happened and we have had no injuries. Yay us! RFG has had me working out in the Gym everyday, he is so strong.. I'm like killing myself just to keep up... I have no idea why but I have been trying really hard in the gym... RFG is the first person the entire time I've been in the army that makes me want to go to the gym. Hope your all enjoying your Holiday season...

So this is mine but you can feel free to use it, I thought it up around the same time as the CHSSHTS Foundation....

Adam, I finally got a box on the way to you. Hopefully, it will find you if you move again. It probably won't make it by the 25th but then you can look forward to something coming after the 25th. Please let us know when you do get it, either by blog or E-mail. The Xmas Show is this weekend - Gramps is an elf (the costume is really silly & I can't wait to see him in it)& his quartet is singing one song in the show. I will be handling the spot light again. I am going to have one of our friends take charge of our digital camera and we will spend the day before Gramps' surgery figuring out how to send the pictures to you and Trey.
You are always in our thoughts, and, we love you.
