War is kind of boring

Well, I've been deployed for a little over a month now. The time is actually going by pretty quickly, which is nice, but I'm having to find new ways everyday to combat the boredom. I spend a lot of time working out, I have to get my beach-body back before my trip to Hawaii later on this year. I have to run on a treadmil, though, because I can't exactly go out for a nice long run outside. I think that's one of the things I miss most about home... that and beer... glorious, glorious beer. They actually let everyone have two beers while they watched the Superbowl, but I was busy that night and missed out. I also have plenty of time to read. I just finished rereading A Clockwork Orange and I'm going to start The Idiot tomorrow. There have been a few bad-days, but overall, I'm doing well. I am, however, dirtier than I've ever been in my life. As soon as I step out of the shower, it seems, the wind will pick up and coat me in a fine layer of desert dust. I think the first thing I'm going to do when I get home is pour a big ol' glass of scotch and sit in the bath tub for an hour or so.
