I hope you had an enjoyable time
on vacation. Maybe you can send me a picture or two when you get a chance.
What do you think of the shrunken NY Times? Not only am I pissed that they are printing less of some specific things, such as fewer letters to the editor, but I wonder what stories are being passed over now?
Also apparently the logistics have changed with this new format and I am not receiving the papers on a daily basis. I had hoped it was just a matter of getting the bugs out, but yesterday, for example, I finally received Sunday's paper along with last weeks, Tuesday through Friday's paper. Saturday's arrived today.
Also they are now placing the mailing label on the left side of the paper, in such a way that it covers the fist three inches of the story in the first column. It was previously placed long ways somewhere in the masthead area so that it would not hide any details other than the weather blurb in the upper right hand corner.
I never did go for that follow up, but might end up going in next week or so. I did go to sick call today to report a missing filling and get put on the list to see the dentist. While there I got on the scale and am now at 220! So not only have I been feeling pretty low, apparently I was working on eating my way out, and that sure as hell does not work. Looks like I am going to have to put my body out on the Rec yard somehow to get at least ten of these pounds off. Needless to say, I still managed to finish off my bi-weekly pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream today.
I need to get back to eating only my own food. Between the two weeks or so of only eating in the mess hall, then mixing some of their meals with some of my own, I ended up forfeiting both the psychological, nutritional, and apparently, the weight maintaining nature of my black bean, octopus, and tuna meals.
As a product of vegging out for the last month, I have letters and other paperwork in too many different places, and am not sure where you last letter is at the moment. I will find it and follow up this letter, with more sooner than this one has taken.
As happened last letter, I need to go jump in the shower since it was another hot day here and I hate trying to sleep when I am all sticky from work and trying to stay cool.
