Got a lot of nods and smiles during the big brief. Either everyone is hitting on me, or they liked the info.

Unintentionally awkward humor
Same quirky Navy coworker, but still...
Quirky Navy coworker: Why are you standing there?
Me: I'm waiting for the boss to get off of the phone.
Quirky Navy coworker: You could just stand in his doorway and glare.
Me: *Laugh* Yeah, be real subtle about it, right?
Quirky Navy coworker: Yeah and just be there like...*stare*
Me: *Laugh* Naw, it's all good, he'll be done in a second.
Quirky Navy coworker: You know, give him one of those stares you probably gave to people before you got that PTSD thing under control.
Me: ...Umm, yeah, heh. Could do that...

Now I realize why they still search my car
Granted, the quoted individual is VERY quirky and shouldn't be taken seriously, I still thought it was funny.
Me: Welcome back, how was vacation?
Navy coworker: Good.
Me: Sorry you missed the warm weather. Winter is back.
Navy coworker: Yeah, how are things here?
Me: Same ol'.
Navy coworker: That bad, huh?
Me: Well, yeah, you can't change everything *laugh*
Navy coworker: Yeah, and I think the things you can't fix you should just blow up.
Me: ...Wow that's not cool. That's what the terrorists say.
Navy coworker: Well I meant "think about," not actually blow up.
Roommate: And now you should stop complaining that they still search service members' cars.
Me: Well played. I concede the point.
Tired, but content with the day. Until tomorrow, peeps, tweeps and tumbleeps.

The start of something big...or at least...
Well, I hope not pretentious. I finally started in with the book. I have it written in my head—hundreds of pages worth. Now I just need to get it all out. It feels weird finally seeing things on pages. It’s exciting, but a little sad. My characters won’t live in me anymore, if that doesn’t sound too strange. They’ll be on their pages, living their lives. I guess...
Air Force coworker: Hey, if you need something shaved, let me know.
Me: Excuse me?
Air Force coworker: My girlfriend's mom is studying to be something where she waxes and shaves people. She needs guys to practice on, especially.
Me: Umm, I'm good.
Air Force coworker: It's not weird or anything.
Me: Yes, yes it is.
Air Force coworker: I'm not a good salesman, am I?
So, I’m thinking of the best place to get going with this whole ”pitch social media to the world” project. The problem is that I have the same conversation at least once a day concerning the question: “What is it you do?” It’s more than just a chit-chat about the military or being a journalist—though those topics are frequent too. What I’m...

Oooh, and there’s an iPhone app for it too. Now I just need that Bluetooth brainwave reader so I don’t have to type anymore ;) I hope to get a few things up and running in the next few days. There will be a wiki or two to fill out some of the tacit knowledge gaps. Then maybe we can all get into some new things.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists. Of a good leader, who speaks...– Lao Tzu
Oh hai. This will grow into what I hope is an evolving, growing knowledge base for social media. I am a military journalist, working at the Defense Information School. While I began my stint here as a basic journalism instructor, I have demonstrated some know-how with emerging media and am now the schoolhouse’s emerging media guru/coordinator/strategist guy (“emerging media”...
