AWTM and I always talk about how self-congratulatory blogging is; we blog because we like the sound of our own voice. Which explains why I ended up re-reading an interview of myself today. If that's not a douchebag thing to do, I don't know what is. But Blackfive bestowed me the honor of saying he likes me, and I had forgotten that interview.

Anyway, I had to laugh that things haven't changed much from one deployment to the next:

Sarah: I have more in common with him than with anyone on the planet; I got lucky that he was a guy instead of a girl! More than anything I just miss hanging out with him, watching Futurama and talking about politics. Each day we get to chat online for like 30 minutes.

annikagyrl: first war where that's been possible, i guess. Thank you Yahoo!, lol

Sarah: We're sorta an odd couple, I'm sure. For example, yesterday we spent our entire time talking about why the dollar is so weak against the Euro. Probably most couples don't talk about that stuff!

Chuck Z's wife laughed at me that my husband and I use our deployment conversation time to talk politics. But every chat is full of names like Obama, Palin, Krauthammer, and Steyn. We spend most of our time talking bailout and Biden. Is that abnormal? It seems fun to me.

LOL - definitely! My bro always has trouble coming up with something to say, and I had to explain to him that there's at least a little bit of narcissism in being a prolific blogger...

And there's only so much to say aside from day-to-day conversation, LOL! Day-to-day news is what changes, so no, I don't think it's abnormal at all. :-)

Not weird at all. It's nice to find your soul mate. My husband and I have always talked about everything (politics, oddballs at work, money, religion, kids, education, etc.) and we're at 28+ years. The conversations haven't gotten any shorter or less boisterous, even though we both know the others points of view on most things. We think we are perfectly normal and we think y'all are too.
