  Punked Out.
[Well here it is Monday afternoon, and I am just now starting to type page three of this letter that was started Friday night. I punked out typing Sunday evening yet ended staying up all night, and finishing off a book. By all night, I mean I was still awake at 7:00 AM when I went into breakfast. I came back from breakfast and slept right up till the 11:15 AM count, lay back down and awoke again at 12:30 PM. Now I have had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and will hopefully get some serious typing done.]

I read through your letter Friday and was cursing you out. You included one email from a "hot looking Spanish chick", but how did you know that and not send me a picture?

I am wondering if what I might do is go ahead and draft out a letter to you, type it out then go back and pick out the issues that I want to actually post. Who knows, but let me see if I can get this drafted out tonight.

[So much for that plan. I will probably just get this letter out tonight, with no specific posts. So go ahead and post this letter as you see fit.]

About to hear Bach's Brandenburg Concerto # 4 performed by the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. Can I write and listen at the same time? Got to love the magic of good old FM radio technology and Public Radio.

9:20 PM and getting sensory overload, ADD, and distracted... Trying to stay focused. I have forty pages to finish in "Blue Blood", another of those books that I would never picked up on my own. I really hate to start picking and choosing which books to read. But do not stop sending them. I no sooner put ten books into the library the other day and some of them are already turning up in other inmate’s hands.

The thing that I have to keep in mind is that my workload here in NY State prison is different from the one in Club Fed. While I had a 'job' in Club Fed, I still had time to type you letters and do plenty of reading in the books you sent.

The major difference is now I receive the New York Times each and every day, and the blog has taken on a higher degree of effort on my part. I need to focus my energies on daily reading of the New York Times. While I do not always get one paper each day, they tend to come in groups of two or three. Any day I do not read at lest one paper means I am creating a backlog. I need to obtain a level of consistency that I have never really had before.

I have a creative idea for a birthday card for your wife. It will not be a birthday card, but an anniversary card, celebrating the unlabeled anniversary of her twenty-first birthday. Forever young.

The movie Friday evening was 'Legends of the Fall'. This was actually an interesting anti-government epic that follows the fortunes of a Montana ranching family, during the period of the First World War and the politics of prohibition. Probably would look really good on a big screen. Great vistas from out west.
