My own little patch of paradise

I've decided that being in a war zone is no reason to be uncomfortable or without the small pleasures of life. I'm not going to be able to accomplish this alone though, there are some things
that I just don't have access to.

This is where I want to build my own little escape. Think of swinging hammocks, big shade umbrellas, coolers full of ice and beverages, some steaks on the grill, and me relaxing in the hammock reading a book and fanning myself as I doze in the warm Baghdad breeze.


I still need to check around here to see what I can scrounge up to help make this happen, as you can see we already have the barbecue, dunno about charcoal though, hmm. Anyway, I'll poke around over here to see what I can draw from to help bring this to life. I'll probably be able to get most of it.

As for the help that I'll need; ideas! Any ideas or suggestions for what to add to the area to make it more comfortable would be greatly appreciated and don't let the fact that it's in a war zone limit your thinking. Currently, this is the designated smoking area and this likely won't change, but it's not like there's a cloud of smoke clogging the area 24x7. The more serious impact is that this means that this area isn't exclusively mine, it will be a common area so I can't put up a big screen plasma or anything that may get liberated.

Ahhh, to be a pogue in a war zone!

While I'm thinking of it, if you want a cool sticker, patch, or dinar with Saddam's head on it send me your physical address and I'll drop it in the mail with a short note. I can send letters free of charge so don't worry about stamps =)
