  Pearls in the writing?
We had fog this morning, so we were served two stale doughnuts and a cereal bar with a side of 4 oz. OJ. The doors first opened at 10:30 AM, since we have the 10:00 AM count on weekends and holidays. So now I think I may be able to write at least four more pages.

I was watching a TV movie on Lifetime. The title was "A Relationship to Die For." Besides the fact that there were way too many and too long commercial breaks, the plot was really stupid except for the prurient value of the two females were lovers, one of them married to a rich man. There were one or two hugs, and despite interesting dialogue closest to a girl/girl relationship that you get on TV, it was a true waste of two hours. I am now listening to the World Café on NPR and they are featuring Los Lobos.

Well, let me go back and see what I wrote last night and see what needs to be said. Well so far, not bad. It seems to me that there are some pearls in the writing, but also some pretty useless stuff.

I did say I would send two exhibits; the second is a facsimile of my Employee of the Month award. The original is laminated and the border is blue. So it is not even useful as emergency toilet paper, but hey it will be a good coaster. Large enough so the glass will not mark the fine furniture I am sure to have in my pad someday. Yeah, right.

It is funny that when I said I would teach an ACE math class, the response was, "No, we were not going to run classes this summer", but then they go and do that floor cleaning class! Another proof that as long as we can show something on paper, it is OK if the actual implementation is bullshit.

The library is closed on Sunday, but to be able to say they provide an alternative, they bring a cart that has four of the twelve or so daily papers we get and five magazines, over to the wellness area in Rec. Think 1,600 inmates, and "reading resources" and all of a sudden a closed library does not seem so bad. But of course the main problem is that also leaves no access at all to the law library!

Well, I am drawing a blank and I have a James Bond book to finish, so TTFN.
