Too much French wine, I imagine.

Did she say what she wanted? My guess is she was trying to warn you..about something.

Meh. Could be worse. There's an upside to being 'petrified' in your bed at 2am.

Burma: JJ are atacking the retreated 6th Aus Div across the Irrawaddy. You don't imagine they mean to cross there? Bassein would be a nice spot for a fighter strip to cover a landing at Moulmein. The CAP from Ramree does a number on the WJD attacks.

I looked up Gloria Gaynor's songs.

The most likely candidates for hidden messages are

I Will Survive

or

Never Can Say Goodbye

Here is what Wiki had to say about I will survive: "The song has become something of an anthem of female emancipation, and is still the #1 staple of office parties and karaoke nights."

Do you keep female slaves, Admiral Lord SPrior? What kind of operation you running there in Kandy House?

My nightmares involve accidently stumbling into a Sushi breastaurant on karaoke night and being forced to listen to You Right Up My Rife sung repeatedly.

Karaoke is a Japan-mens invention but those Koreans are just karaoke nutcases. We have a big Korean contingent at work. Pretty damn good singers, too.

See, that's my problem. Karoake rook rike great fun but you either have to have a good voice or THINK you have a good voice to enjoy it. I suppose you can drink until you exceed the "loss of all personal dignity" threshold but then how are you supposed to remember the words?

I have the same problem with dancing. I am pretty sure I make Mitt Romney rook rike MJ.

I was just thinking about Lord Admiral SPrior's dream. It's really no more odd than having a dream with Raisa Gorbachev in it....unless the ghost of Gloria Gaynor was still there when he woke up. I'm not sure he made that part clear.


************Pranning for June 4****************


Airfield damage at Naha is at 13% but we apparently broke a bunch of fighters. Japan-mens in ships apparentry run away so we send in North Carolina tonight to bombard again then, in the morning, we raid Nago with about 40 B-24's from Aparri.

Washington and Massachusetts are fully armed in separate task forces at Miyako-jima, ready to take their turns if needed.

You gotta love the fast BB's.

Yes, but what if you also forget you had fun?

My GI doc that can't remember me because I was wearing pants in the doctor's dining room gave me 8 mg of versed. That is party time for an African elephant but I can't remember a damn thing until I woke up and Stalker Girl was laughing at the pictures.

Koreans have mastered the art of exceeding "loss of all personal dignity". All it takes is a bottle of soju and a dare. Then all bets are off. In the interests of full disclosure, the Koreans in the establishments I frequented would just as happily get drunk on Jim Beam, which could be bought tax free at the Class VI store for $2 for a fifth. Jack Daniels was more expensive, it cost $2.80 for a fifth.

Fully fermented sour-mash vs partly fermented cabbage.

Air losses from the 3rd. Some bench players were substituted in some ground attacks over Burma...and got the stuffing shot out of them although some hero managed to shoot down a Corsair.

Ground losses from the cruiser bombardment at Naha were overstated...as usual.

Interesting story in Time or Newsweek (whichever one still exists) about the rise of Japanese "militarism". Japan is sparring with the Chicoms over some isrands in the East China Sea. Japan now has a radar installation on Ishigaki (we know where that is, right?) with 160 guys. They also surged 70 F-15's to the civilian airport at Naha. That a rot of F-15's..even better that P-47's.

Moving house this week, off to Portsmouth. Got a house 50yds from Southsea sea front.

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll along the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:

Got a jolly nice ISP who will have us hooked up on Saturday morning. This time we're going cable.

The Senkaku Isrands in the East China Sea. I don't think they are even on the AE map.

The PRC claimed the airspace was an "air defense identification zone" so the USAF send a couple of BUFF's over to yank their chain.

What size airfield you think could be put there?

That was Hartlepool and points north. We've got Southsea Castle to protect us. And those strange forts out in the oggin. Plus Palmerston's follies.

Hory crap! That is really cool. Judging from the brick that must date to the 19th century or earlier...and then perhaps retrofitted with concrete? Also, according to the video the women there are fairly attractive.
