Hmmmm… I talk about lightning strikes a couple days ago and all of a sudden today it’s raining like mad and there is some crazy lightning storm going on all night. And it’s Halloween.

It’s pretty cool though. 🙂

Whatever crazy stuff is going on with ebola in the real world is just kind of strange if you ask me. I mean, what… like 1 or 2 people in the US died from it and now we are going to spend $100 million on preventing it? I bet 50 people die every year in the US from lightning strikes, but we don’t put up lightning rods everywhere to prevent that. People are silly.

Oh, and we got a notice on our bulletin board here that people coming in to prison are going to be asked if they might have been exposed to ebola. I feel safe now. lol

Wired Magazine

Posted: October 27, 2014 in Uncategorized

I ordered a subscription to Wired Magazine before I even came here (back in June) and today I *just* now got my first issue. Not the swiftest delivery… only took 18 weeks for the first issue.

I guess I’ve been here slightly longer than 100 days because I bought multi-vitamins a couple days after I got here and took one per day. And now they are gone and I had to buy a new bottle.

Reading Certificate, part deux

Posted: October 20, 2014 in Uncategorized

My rehabilitation from a hardened criminal is coming along well. I earned my second reading certificate now for reading 20 total books since I’ve been here.

Macworld Subscription

Got my issue of Macworld today. They also let me know this is the last print issue they are doing. They are switching to digital-only magazines.

Well that sucks. I doubt this place is going to give me an iPad to read it on going forward. haha

Banana Bread

I had that carrot cake a couple weeks ago, and today someone brought me banana bread they made. It was pretty damn good.

Amazing how much good food people can make with just a microwave when you need/want to.

Someone Missing

Posted: October 13, 2014 in Uncategorized

Someone else walked away today… That makes 9 people who decided to escape (well, more like walk away) this place since I’ve been here in a few months.

Official Release Roster

Posted: October 12, 2014 in Uncategorized

The downstairs clerk walked by and said he saw my name added to the “Official Release Roster” (whatever that means). I suppose that’s good.

I assume it’s just automatic when you are within 60 days of your release, which I am today.

Either way, it feels nice. 🙂

Last Safety Meeting

Posted: October 9, 2014 in Uncategorized

We have to go to these monthly safety meetings when you have a job here where you watch videos about dumb things. For example don’t spray dangerous chemicals in your eyes. Basically, the safety meetings are pretty boring and lame.

The good news is that this is the last one I have to go to because I’ll be taken off work on November 1. This is the good news of the day. 🙂
