Any word on if you'll be coming home?  I need to make airline arrangements to make sure we're in San Jose when you arrive.   The Weghted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you.

You really are doped up.  Grenade-tag FTW. 

Or I can just wait until you've had two Bud Lites.  You're lucky to be conscious after that much alcohol.

I was horrified to hear about your injury, Kato - geeze what a close call! Luckily (for me), I missed the stickie at the top, so I got to avoid all the tension and misery of waiting for news. I'm so glad to hear of your recovery!

I'm wondering though, is that smilie at the end of your post a picture of your hospital outfit? Somehow I thought it'd be a tad more manly...  eek

Oh, and if you let us know if you have any layovers on your way home, I can reach Boston, MA and Hartford, CT - and more than one airbase (closest is Westover, but there are more I can't temember the names of, of course.)

Get Well Soon!

Ha ha I remember that.  Even though that every picture you got from Burnout included me giving you the  finger 

And people complain about asian drivers  ninja

I got a PM from a GT member (Suitably Ironic Moniker) that is actually stationed/lives right next to the hospital.  What a nice guy, I may shamelessly ask him for some good local food for take out  drool

I may in the states as early as next month.  Can't wait to play with you guys online again.  Hopefully even meet some of you in person.

Dogmeat continues to go on patrols with my Marine unit, and he has been officially adopted by my command which is good news.  The bad news is that he won't be coming back to the states with me  icon_cry

And yes Mytocles I am currently sporting a nice hospital gown that does not cover my backside.  I'd post a pic here but that kind of sexiness would get me banned.

That must mean that they too must have also ridden on the back of your ATV in Halo 3's Rocket Race.  I still have nightmares about those races.  Although I think it was your Asian driving that kept us alive as it was so unpredictable.  No one knew where to aim as you could at any moment swerve or slam on the brakes for no reason.   icon_lol

Let us know exactly when that will be once you have a date ironed out.  Many of us would like to be there.
