Giddyness Quotient?

Postby PD » Thu Feb 25, 2010 6:30 pm

IS there any hint of giddyness at this time?
I have my kit in good order and also my box of loaner kit. My provisions are being assembled and Tomorrow will see me undergo the trad Haarschnitt. Onkel Stig is appointed driver (immediately upon his return from Nippon) and so we must ply him with Lucozade and tasty niblets. I think I can safely claim a 7.5 which will be an 8 by tomorrow.
Anyone else?

I'm pretty much organised for me and my lad. However, the fact that I have no voice at the moment (been struggling since January, and seeing a specialist next week) is taking the shine off everything at the moment. I can't even call for a Sani when I'm hit, let alone enjoy some social banter with anybody. :(

I'm sure once I get my Feldgrau on, I'll perk up a bit.

All I need to do is pack! Got my Green Gas finally. (with some spare if anyone needs some!) Just need to cram everything in. The thing that usually gives me problem is me metal lid...

Dampened by the realisation that our windows are being re-done on the Monday, so we have things to shift now/Sunday, but a steady high up here. :D

At the risk of staing the obvious, i find if i pack the inside of the lid with soft kit then it doesnt take up much more room in a pack...

Yeah thats the plan really. Its not as bad as my other events where I have to cram two large uniforms into the same bag :P

But as for the topic at hand. I'm pretty damn excited.

Mind you, in the unlikely event that my new Stahlhelm arrives in time, that'll take me to an 8. 8)

having spent a lot of time writing up all of our amazing ideas for this game, I'm simmering and a very respectable 10 :)

After having to sit through an amazingly brain numbing course on how to spot a terrorist I am now free to load my car with explody things and guns.

Was having a car full of explody things and guns one of the ways by any chance? :wink:

Due to having to come via various people and meetings the car is already packed full of kit and I am at my forward base (Base Camp 1 I am calling it) ready for a strike at the summit on Saturday morning. However, after all the c#@p today (currently taking a break from work at 11.30pm to write this) and having to pack the car in 20 minutes this afternoon and leaving behind various goodies, my GQ is a very poor 3. :evil:
But I expect that to rise to a respectable 9 when I make my attempt at the summit on Saturday morning. :happydance:
Bring it on! :happyswing:
