Trivia night and BFA

by on under Army

Tonight we’re playing trivia so we might get to drink tonight. For a dry deployment there has been a lot of drinking :) I’ve filled my boots on three occasions, the last time being last trivia night where I decided to be classy and get smashed on red wine. I paid for it the next day spending a good portion of it nursing a toilet bowl. That day I had to cover lunch which I spent lying in the watch keepers stretcher. I explained to him that I must have caught gastro from the red wine, he seemed satisfied with this explanation. I’m excited about tonight, last trivia night I was helping out because I didn’t get on a team in time. I sold raffle tickets. To boost sales with the officers I put fake answers on the back.

This morning we had a basic fitness test. It came in the immediate wake of 4 grave yard shifts. I’d been up for 18 hours and was high on coffee. All things considered I did pretty well, a PB on the push ups (64 in 2 minutes, pass is 40), a full set of sit ups (100, pass is 70), and the run in 10:47 (2.4km, pass is 11:18). I was a little disappointed in the run, I want to get sub 10 but I think I need to start running for that to happen :( and running bores me. I fought sleep until 10 and pillowed for 3 hours so as to get out of the graveyard rhythm.
