On the legal front,
I have written to the Court of Appeals
to please reconsider my request to present my appeal.
According to my jailhouse lawyers manual
, you have to submit the request within thirty days of being denied the permission. The request goes back to the same Judge that turned you down.
It seems sort of pointless, but I figure I have nothing to lose by asking.
The book states that in 1992, 2,800 requests were made to the Court of Appeals, and permission was only given to 100 cases to be heard by the full court.
Talk about slim odds
Meanwhile, I have been on a junk food feeding frenzy for the last few weeks. About the only change has been the seven pounds I gained.
I still feel miserable!
