Steve's tell-all journal continues. The alien interpreter trainees move into the Human Habitat at the Embassy and they have a new instructor -- a Hoidan Zeday retired professional tongue wrestler. Steve meets Ceiling, his sexy-voiced guide on the personnel systems facilities interface. He also develops an obsessive hatred of soap dispensers and makes friends with the Hoidan Zeday plumber who is really a genetics engineer who grows equipment. The new Cricktou liaison has a run in with leftover sushi and the bureaucrats get ulcers. The trainees interpret for a joint task force rebuilding a fighter jet that the aliens damaged during first contact. Steve get adopted by the Hoidan Zeday and gets a new job. Babysitting. Plus! Lots of dancing and beer, blood letting and piercings, hypnosis and construction, a chicken and a cow!
