  Be careful what you wish for.
Wow, talk about be careful what you wish for. I wonder what has been happening over this last week on the blog. Do I hope it has gone unnoticed by the rest of the world? Have the comments of the three blogs you sent me sparked greater interest?

The main problem as I see it is by the time you get this it will already be many days past the start of whatever has been generated by the mention of Prison Pete on the MSNBC show.

I have already typed one full page in response to Ms. Malkin, but do not think it is really what I want to say. I suppose I could just ignore her comments; however, it is part of what I hoped the blog might accomplish, that being a chance to dispel or correct some misconceptions that exist about prison.

I spent an hour this morning before breakfast writing a rough draft of what I wanted to say. I thought I might type one page of a letter to you to get my creative juices flowing. Actually it is not the creative juices; it is the work ethic, and consistency of work that need the push and pressure.

One of the other inmates here, who has a brother that works for Microsoft, used to have a blog. He said it was too much work for him to do. He does keep busy, and is currently working on a full length "comic book." He is thinking of doing the blog via the newer pod casting. Lazy snot.

I actually watched all three movies this weekend. "Cellular" on Friday, "Unstoppable" on Saturday, and I just got finished watching "Hotel Rwanda." I will put my comments on that one into a blog post over the next couple days. It is ironic that for once we get a thought provoking movie and all of a sudden no one wants to watch it.

We had bagels for brunch today. I ended up with two this time. I had one with cream cheese, and another with four slices of American cheese. I will be skipping the alleged baked chicken tonight. I will take a break around the 5:25 PM count to make some tuna for my dinner.

I am thankful for all the catalog requests you have put in for me. I really need to order the carbon paper.

Did you email a request to those UpNorth guys to send me one of the food catalogs? I appreciate your research on the ribbons, but Mom and Dad refuse to order anything over the Web!

I assume that the newer the carbon paper, the better? The fuzziness of the letters is due to the carbon paper. You have gotten a few letters typed with the ribbon. Once I order the carbon paper, I will be able to use a newer sheet more often. I will also buy the guy I have now borrowed over twenty sheets from a new pack!
It will be interesting to see what kind of feedback you get from being mentioned nationally. I was amazed after recommending you for blog of the week the number of hits that happened in a 24 hour time period. Once again, it may well be more than you bargained for.
And your letter to Ms. Malkin, very well written Pete. Kudos. Hope you're hanging in there. Sorry I haven't responded much lately. I still have some books I'd like to send you at some point, but seems like your editor still has a lot to send as well.
