Happy birthday!

Congratulations on the wedding (but why aren't you honeymooning - there shouldn't be time for us)!

And yay on Levie's new boyfriend who can make him squirm. :lol:

Annnd we're back! Currently uploading Kat's pictures for her approval. But I'll post a shot or two I know she won't mind as soon as I get these babies uploaded to Facebook!

Awesome wedding, gorgeous location (and holy hell was it ever hot in Baltimore compared to the temperature in Toronto right now), great food and cake, and friendly people. And hell, we actually really like the dude she picked out to bring to the altar! ;) Seriously though, he was awesome. Very friendly, easy to talk to and seemed an all around good guy. So we know Kat's in good hands now! ;) Was awesome meeting Kat for the first time, after the previous failed attempt at bottomless mimosa parties in New York (sad face).

P.S. Google Maps is a dirty, lying whore. It is NOT an 8.5 hour drive to Baltimore. It is 10 solid hours. What a bastard.

More to come, but for now:

Invis and I after the ceremony.

It's been brought to my attention that I may be too short. Our first attempt at the ever-classy self-portraits:

I'm not really sure how to describe this photo other than by telling the story behind it so as to explain our various facial reactions. The guy who offered to take our picture pulled the usual "teehee, I'm going to run off with your camera now" trick. So we're kind of a mixture between "dude, seriously" to "ridiculous guffawing". LOL, anyway:

So I quit smoking today. I told many friends/family that I was going to quit today. Why did none of them tell me how fucking bad my head was gonna hurt?!

This.

Sucks.

Congrats to all (weddings, birthdays, smoke quitting)

@Aubade: How many of them were previous smokers that have quit? Of those, how long ago was it they quit and is there a chance they forgot about it?

I'd imagine it's a lot like breaking yourself from caffeine though... you'll get headaches for a bit until your body starts to adjust to the change, then they'll go away.

Hmm I don't know. I embrace my Caffeine addiction.

The best way I can describe it, now 24 hours off Nicotene is this.

I want a cigarette..bad. Reallllly realllly bad. I'm making sure not to leave myself alone because if I'm alone I'll probably cave and go get a cigarette. I have a terrible pounding Headache (Despite the Ibuprofen I took earlier) and I know it will go right away if I just go have a cigarette..... Luckily My girlfriend is being extremely supportive so that's helping =]

I do know once you pass the 3 day mark, there's no more phyisical addiction. And it just is all mental from that point on, so I'm just egging myself on to that point.

Have you tried/considered nicotine patches or lozenges?

My Grandpa was a 50+ year smoker when he quit, and he used the lozenges.

So my orders may still change, but as of right now I am scheduled to be headed to Berlin, Germany for my next year of duty.

Time to start brushing up on mein Deutsch.

Sounds fun. At this point it looks like I'm going to have to suffer through 3 years in Hawaii.

These phrases got me through 3 years in K-town. Berlin is far less Americanized then Kaiserslautern though, so you may want to study more than I did.

Ein bier bitte - beer please

Wo ist die toilette - where's the bathroom

Danke - thanks

Bitte - please

Sprechen sie englisch - do you speak english

Guten Tag - good day
Guten Morgen - good morning
Guten Abend - good evening
Guten Nacht - good night

Wo ist der Bahnhof - where's the train station

There are a lot of international tourists, students etc in Berlin every year. So you can expect a large part of berlins population can speak english, more or less well ;)

but its always nice, if someone who lives a while in germany tries to learn german.

I don't know what kind of a smoker you are, but I was on 70/80 cigarettes a week and I didn't really have any physical problem, no headache, no nothing. The single biggest problem when you stop is in your head, when you think that you want one, just tell yourself that it's not true, you really don't want one, or you would have not stopped.

In Germany they teach English right beside German in school, so you can get by just fine without speaking a word of German.

Although I agree, if you're going to be somewhere for a while, making an effort to learn at least touristspeak is just good sense.

It might be taught, but I was taught Spanish in high school, but can't speak/understand it. If you don't practice it, it's very easy to forget. That being said, I never really had an issue around K-Town, but never made it over to Berlin.

I actually studied German for 5 years, and studied abroad in Koln, Germany. I'm rusty as hell, but I watched some tv programs in German yesterday and a lot was coming back to me.

My biggest problem with picking up Spanish (which I had to do from scratch because I didn't know anything) was that I keep accidentally saying German words and using German grammar when I am not sure what something is in Spanish, with some random Pashtu and Arabic thrown in the mix, just for fun. It was like some horrible Frankenstein language.

But at any rate, assuming these orders stand, I'm confident that I'll get along just fine in Berlin. I was actually slightly disappointed to be assigned there, since I'd rather go somewhere new and exciting rather than someplace I've already been.
