actually had a non depressing day, went out with my friends here to the air force side of the base and played shuffleboard, pool, ping pong, and fooseball for about 4 hours then we went to chow and brought back to the ready room like 6 bottles of sparkling grape soda and 2 cartons of non alcoholic eggnog.
