ONE!!! almost (T-0)

Seems my countdown was to 1 September…but the above number means 0 days and some amount of minutes till 1 Sep. Close enough.

So I’m outprocessed as of yesterday morning and in one and a half hours my time, I will be officially separated from the US Air Force, after over 13 years of service in some shape or fashion (5 years AFROTC -don’t tell me that doesn’t count as I worked my ass off for UCLA AFROTC- and 8 years Active Duty). BOOYAH. I had a great going-away/separation party yesterday afternoon/evening at Jack Quinn’s, as you’ll see by the buttload of pictures below. Got a lot of great gifts and it was nice to see the people I’d been working with these past two years one more time. Obviously I’ll be seeing my close friends again lots before I actually head out for NYC, but you know what I mean.

I’ve been steadily working on getting moved though – I really only have 3 weeks to get a LOT of shit done. I’ve booked my househunting flight for a few days next week to New Jersey/New York, and hopefully…okay, not hopefully….let’s say that upon my return next week, I WILL have a place to call home on the East Coast. So that’s that!

Okay, I just want to get the pictures up – I’m getting sleepy and I have to get up tres early tomorrow morning to take Susan and Jeff to the airport. As in, I’m getting up at 4am to pick them up at 4:30am. Ugh. And now, it’s picture time!!!!!!

That’s enough pictures for one day. But I will leave you with this: what you probably thought or assumed about me, well, you were right.
