I am enclosing a few of my attempts to use the manual typewriter. I am not sure if any of it is worth scanning. I am not clear on the OCR, but am sort of under the impression from what you have said that if the letters do not match a word, it displays the characters in question as a graphic. If this is the case, I can see how the xxx outs of stray letters at the end of a line would be a pain in the ass.
I did drag myself down to Education today only to be told thirty minutes into my typing that I could not wear my headphones! Actually, the way the inmate/staff dialogue went was, I was summoned to the office by an inmate, and then my old boss from the print shop asked me why I was wearing my headphones.
(See how easy it is to really answer these stupid questions?)
Well, he informed me I could not wear my headphones in the library. No such rule exists, but this is one of those no-win situations, since if I pushed the issue, the rule would all of a sudden pop up.
So instead of being able to type undistracted, I am forced to be in a room with six or seven inmates all babbling over what they are typing and the absurd conversations of the jailhouse lawyers using big legal terms without actually knowing the meaning of the words. Makes one want to pull out ones hair!
I am enclosing my varied attempts to type some stuff over the last two weeks. I would be interested to see what the OCR does with it. I am not sure if any of it can actually be posted.
I am enclosing two more winning wrappers from the Hershey contest. One is an instant coupon for a free Hershey bar, and the other is worth a free bag of Twizzler's! They claim one in five wins candy instantly! Yeah right, I figure of about the thirty candy bars I purchased, only one was an instant winner.
Also enclosed find a few of my favorite cartoons that hung over my desk at Rec. Since I cannot put them on my bulletin board here in the unit, I thought I could send them to you. Please save them with this letter somehow. Did you ever get a chance to check out those "old" Boondocks?
Yeah, like you have not spent enough time doing stuff for me.
