The chatter has begun. Me and my Reservist (I still use that term even though they’ve called us NSmen for the past ten years) platoon have a Yahoo! Group where we keep each other posted on rumours of what the powers that be have in store for us during in-camp. We also use our Yahoo! Group to announce important things, such as weddings and births and when we can meet up for drinks.
It’s roughly two months out from this year’s ICT, and we’re a little nervous. Apparently there won’t be any nights out in the second week, and weekends will be spent in-camp. The ‘good’ news is that very soon after this ICT, there’ll be another in 2005, which will be in Australia! Woohoo! There, we will revise how to fight in the desert or something. Very useful.
The fact that I am so looking forward to reservist is testament to my needing a holiday very, very badly. Next month’s trip to HK is not considered one. I am going there for the ex’s wedding. Yes, I am feeling antsy, just like most everyone else. And if this gets any worse, I’ll want to cut someone. Or something.
