Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hello everyone! Yes, i think i have time today.=) I hope you had a good thursday.=)

Sorry for the long face, i had a long day. Which is good, im happy when im tired, it means i wasnt lazy.=)

In honor of the soldiers who fell lifeless in the poppy fields in the first wolrd war when they were told that they were fighting a war to end all wars, i wore my poppy with Ralph Lauren’s flowers on my shirt. My husband was an officer of the British army and he reads me one war poem every November.

I wanted to be a soldier. I was S2 (Security Officer) in our high school cadet. I was next to the Adjudant, highest cadette/female officer, i was Cadette Captain B_______! hehehe! I did go through some dirty training (i can do 2 weeks of push ups!!!) and the nastiest i think is jumping into a filthy pond with all your uniform and combat boots that you will have to wear again the next day. But I’m a tough girl.=) (My father treated me like a son!) I wanted the uniform, the right to boss around, the luxury of being able to do what you want, or simply wanted the “Ma’am, yes Ma’am!”. And when i got it, you bet, i exercised the little power. =) We get to skip a day of class once a week to secure the gates and walls (students like cutting classes and we liked punishing them!) and make sure that the ones who come late (too lazy to sing the national anthem!) get to do their job (clean the school toilet!) My boyfriend then was the XO (executive officer) and the S1 (adjudant) was my best friend and the Corps commander was my cousin, so i admit i was sort of spoilt a little bit and they just let me play around. And i personally asked them that i do the “SOLDIER’S WINE”. Yes, the “Soldier’s wine”.=) We do the drill every thursday afternoon (2 hours of torture on their part, and pleasure on ours.) We call it “Gods’ play time”. Anyway, yes, we do that every thursday but we train officer candidates once a month. And my, this is the day i always look forward to. Its the time when the commandant says “Ok, they’re yours.” and he leaves us alone. And we have this “soldier’s wine.” We had it when we were like them, every officer had it, every year somebody has to have it. And yes, i asked the staff that they give me the job (the torture job), the honor.=) So you’ve got this 10 kids in a suicide line, you give the first one a piece of candy, he/she keeps it in the mouth for 5 seconds and pass to others and back again till its finished. Oh yes, they cant swallow it, we know how long a candy lasts! =) (Dont think im cruel please, i’ve done the same thing!) =) Then after the candy, comes the wine. I mix the wine, i make the wine. I make sure it’s the worst drink they’d ever have. (again, i’ve drank it too, so please dont hate me!) =) So i get the jug (it was bright yellow!!!) and put everything in there. My mix was Royal (orange softdrinks), Coke, Sprite, Coffee, Soy sauce, Vinegar, 4 eggs, pepper, ginger, garlic, onion, and Milo (chocolate drink). Stir it good and serve it cold. I puked the first time i had it (yes, we had it every month when we were candidates!) though their mix, i have to say, was a little bit different. And again, please dont hate me, every candidate is aware of the list of horrible things they’ll go though in the school training before they go to the real military school for final training (where we did THE real training and the disgusting pond thing.) But of course, my mother didnt want me to join the army. Un-chic maybe? =) Yes, she sent me to a university to be a stewardess (which i gave up a year before graduation, for the love of Rock n Roll).

Anyway, enough of my soldier thing. The poppy is for the real ones.=)

So that’s it. (Making up for last night’s page.) =) Sorry it’s a long one.

Again, thank you for the comments and votes. Especially you guys who voted (you know who you are) and like i said, i owe you my chic points and you know i love you.=)

Goodnight everyone! =)

Love Love Kiss Kiss
