We have three different places to find a toilet. There are two booths in the shower room, but I think I will avoid that area except when I need a shower. There are two others out the door and down the hall a bit. They are opened 24/7 but the shower room ones are closed from 11:00 PM to 6:30 AM.

As far I know we only get one roll of toilet paper per week; we get a new roll each Wednesday. I have to learn to not use it for my runny nose. I have taken one of my extra washcloths and the "state" soap with me to wash the toilet seat, and then I use two or three squares of paper to dry the seat instead of covering the entire seat with toilet paper. So hopefully by doing this, my roll will last me a week.

I have now been told by two different inmates not to argue with our counselor. She is apparently a bitch on wheels and the last inmate to argue with her got a beating and was thrown in the "box".

I have a whole pile of articles to start writing on and hopefully within the next few days as things settle into a routine I can start some more serious writing.

I certainly will deal with the questions Alisha raised. In the meantime, tell her for me she did not cross the line at all and that I appreciate honest criticism.

I would say that part of the lack of more input has been the lack of the typewriter and my inability to edit stuff a bit before I send it. The day-to-day stuff flows easily and needs no editing as to order or content.

So yes please stand by readers, I promise to take this blog to the next level soon. As a matter of fact, let me try and track down the typewriter guy now! Be right back!

I am still waiting for the typewriter guy. He is supposed to be in library, but took some time to make a phone call.

It is currently 8:40 PM and I have been basically writing since 5:00 PM. Gee, it is great to have no real life!

Damn, he is still not back in the library at 9:00 PM. Time to pause.

Now 9:20 PM and I am fading fast. I am not sure if it is general tiredness, a possible lack of protein, or just lack of food in general, but whatever it is, this is not prime writing. I am going to sign off now, climb up into bed and wait for the 9:45 PM count and then take a hot shower.

Yeah, a shower two days in a row! What a gift! One must learn to celebrate the little things!
I have been away for a few days and just started to catch up on your posts. I have to say that your situation is very depressing to me, and I can't imagine how it must be for you. Have you given up on the appeal? I keep meaning to ask you if you have access to a lawyer? If you feel like you have a good case, why don't you have counsel? Or is that only in the movies? Also, do you have siblings and if you do, do they keep in touch with you? I'm curious as to why your parents seem so lax in getting your newspapers and food to you. Do you think that they are just use to your situation and have become complacent? I know, too many questions, it's my curse. I always want to know more.
