So My opinion of Nebraska is pretty good so far. Nice people, good city (Omaha), and lots to do. Yes, shockingly there are many things to do around here. Never knew Omaha was an Indy band Mecca, but it is.
I spent the first week getting used to the job and the people I'll be working with over the next 4 years. Spent all that time in a Holiday Inn Express since I can't get into base housing until Mid-August. I've spent the last few days at my friend's house. Sinclair and I survived ROTC together out in California, and he and his wife live out here now. They've been kind enough to let me borrow their guest room for another week, and I can't thank them enough. It's great to finally see one of the good guys come out ahead.
Things won't settle down around here for a while, but I'll do my best to keep updating everyone. I leave back to Dayton in a week to go pick up the family bring them back out here.
As for now, it's almost 2am and I'm sitting here relaxing. I'm going to try to finish formatting my screenplay tomorrow. Yes, the screenplay I finished a year ago but never got around to properly formatting. I figured that if I don't get it done now, it'll never happen. Now's the time to get it done while I still can. I want to submit it soon and make those big-time Hollywood bucks. Just kidding. Actually, I just want it done. It's a good story about the War in Iraq, and I want it out there. I'm tired of these negative and totally biased movies about Iraq.
And now for an intermission from the most underrated band in history. I think RWA would agree that Dream Theater is probably one of the better live performing bands out there today, and they don't sound too shabby at 2am either.
Let's see, what else can I come across at 2am? How about my girl Uma using a Light Saber on Kill Bill. Who would have thought.
Wow, I missed this part of 'Princess Bride.'
Hey, it's 'Inappropriate Soundtrack' time. At least it has a pre-Charlie Sheen Denise Richards.

Thank you for the update - enjoy hearing from you. I suppose you can do brain surgery now that you've spent a whole week in a Holiday Inn Express...?
Good luck on the screenplay!
Yes, I would agree with your points about Dream Theater.
Glad to hear that things are going well. Hopefully once you get the family moved, it will settle down.
Say Howdy to all my MIMI buddies at the 97th!2:16 PM

Glad you are enjoying Omaha...I would recommend eating at Wheatfields...at One PAcific Place....
I used to love the French Cafe...but have heard complaints!
Enjoy Omaha, and yes it is the Indy band Mecca!
We are in Lincoln, and I am enjoying the speedy, tey friendly service
