Bingo Was My Name-O

Posted: November 16, 2014 in Uncategorized

We have bingo here every month, although this is the only the second time I’ve played in it (I’ve always coincidentally had a visit on bingo days so I miss it).

Anyway… I won, so I get $10 towards commissary. Which is cool because, you know… you get the credit in 6 weeks… WHEN I’M GONE.

Oh well, hopefully if I ever come back to prison, I get my $10 credit. 🙂

Lost 35 Pounds

Errrr… I was going to try to lose 25 pounds while I was here, and now I’ve lost 35 pounds. Which means I came in at 208 and I’m not 173.

I should probably stop losing weight now (I’m 6’0″).

I’m not going to name any names, but there is most definitely a correctional officer here that can’t read English. When he gives out mail, he hands every single piece to an inmate to read the name out.

I would think English proficiency should be a qualification for working here, but I guess not.

Pending Release

Well, my assigned job was officially changed to “Pending Release”. Meaning I don’t have to work at my lame recreation job anymore. Plus it’s just nice to see “Pending Release” next to your name on paperwork. 🙂

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

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
