Speaking of cheap,
the way the inmate accounting system works here they sort of freeze your account from the day or two before commissary to the day after. Even though I have more than the maximum I could possibly spend today, the letter I mailed last night which may need an extra ounce of postage, may not have left the prison this morning as it should have. If I am lucky they did mail it and are just waiting till tomorrow to post the 63¢ debit to my account. If not, it will be delayed.
Well tonight's letter will go out in the regular fashion tomorrow morning as I will not be typing more than four pages in the next hour or so. I did go up and meet with the chaplain, but since he had to go over to C Block to notify an inmate of a death in the family, I got to come back a little earlier than planned. In celebration of the extra time, I decided to spend it talking to you.
Sugar and Caffeine and other things nice. Today is the great Tuesday bi-weekly commissary day. Since around 2:30 PM I have had one pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream and am starting my third Dr. Pepper@, along with a half a box of Banquet Southern Fried Style Chicken®, one 2 oz. bag of M&M's® and just to help me carry my two bags of food up the hill, one Banjo. No, I did not have it on my knee. In this case a Banjo is a vanilla ice cream, chocolate coated pop. The wrapper is marked with a 25c price but we pay only 17¢. What a bargain!
I most definitely perform better with a ton of sugar and caffeine in my system. The chicken is a little bit of a negative since I try hard to avoid fat in most of my other food; my mouth now feels like I swallowed a quart of 10W30 motor oil.
