Did you know Robert Duvall played Capt. Frank Burns in the original MASH movie?
yep. He did. So he was in 'Nam and Korea. That's a pretty long stretch to be in the Army. Some other TV tidbits for you
Here's the problem. Not only is there nothing here to do, I don't have a car. See, I am only a mile from the facility I need to work in, so being the nice guy that I am, I decided not to rent a car. Saves the client some dough, yo. I'm that kinda guy. Well, that was a serious mistake. I have had hours and hours each day that I needed to kill. Sure, I went for a couple of jogs, but it is freakin' MUGGY here. Unbearable humidity. 90 degrees, but with 90% humidity. It is miserable.
But, I did see a trusty Waffle House, one of the sure signs you are in the south. But it was too far away to eat at, so I have actually eaten at f-ing Denny's three times. One breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner. The best lunch so far though was the Steak and Ale "potroast sandwhich". Mmmmmm. it was tasty. No Grand Slam breakfast, mind you, but yummy just the same.
The only saving grace is that there is shuttle van that will take me anywhere within 5 miles of the hotel
The van is driven by whoever the front desk can round up. I was picked up twice from the facility by some guy named Amos. No cookies, and he was a terrifyingly bad driver. Lets just say that we TWICE ran a red light. The same one, two nights in a row. He just felt it took "too long to change". Good times. I was very pleased when he told me that he had the next day off. I might live through this part of the trip after all.
The best part was when I went to the main building around 11pm to print up a boarding pass. I had to wait for the computer because there was a japanese guy looking at porn on the computer with a printer. this is in the main lobby area. porn. what the hell?
