  Surviving without BET.
I got your Monday letter today, it took an extra day. Lots to read and think about in so few pages, and no small type. It goes to show it is not how much you say, it is how you say it.

I will hopefully get to type the letters soon! I have gotten six pages of the first letter done already. The fog has really screwed up my schedule. I actually had to work all day today!

I did another ten laps tonight, and I have to admit it feels good. But my feet are killing me. The EEEEEE width boots still crunch my toes a bit. Calluses to come soon.

I have found that I will clean up some of the "fuzziness" of the handwritten letters. I wonder if I should use the handwritten letters as a guide, and then go ahead and edit and condense on the first type?

I do not want you to be overloaded with too much bullshit, and I am still hoping I can gradually get some serious discipline in terms of this writing thing. I am already aware of the amount of time the writing process will take. I hope that once I get up to the point where I can go back and review the revised type pages, I can begin to produce some nice, tight writing. I am not setting my expectations too high, but I am committed to expending some major effort in developing this plan.

I did skip writing yesterday, but was suffering from a total sensory overload in following around my new boss while he completed the various phone calls. I tried to spend a few minutes describing what it is I actually do, but it was hopeless.

For some reason the cable TV has been screwed up lately and BET is not coming in. I have not heard any official talk and do not know if it is a "policy" thing or not. Even without BET, they still manage to find crap to watch. The other night we had a "choice" of black shows on UPN, football, wrestling, or Headline News.
