Spike is a PT Stud.

I have to give a quick shout-out to the Captain, who passed his PT (Physical Training) test this morning with flying colors...before 7:00 AM, and before coffee. To me, that last part is almost as impressive as the push-ups, sit-ups, and 2-miler part. Of course, Spike modestly downplays his achievements (he is one of the most humble people he knows, and he'll tell you that himself...), but I still say, "That was a job well done!"
Spike being studly.
I suppose you could argue that physical fitness is more or less part of your job when you're in the military; however, stuff like this nevertheless throws my own lack muscular and cardiovascular prowess into rather sad perspective. I do make a token effort in the form of a handful of sit-ups and push-ups each morning, but as you can see, my superpowers really lie elsewhere.

That's right, I'm a vampire slayer.
(Last Halloween, I was both a blonde and Buffy. And yes, in this picture I am slaying Edward Cullen. And no, the fact that the Captain's nickname is Spike has not escaped me. I revel in that fact with unbridled nerdy glee.)


  1. Actually John says he is not Edward Cullen but Angus, Edwards cousins
    Angus twice removed.

  2. Ahhh...good to know. Is Angus also a "vegetarian" vampire?
