I played in the blogger free roll and I had a great time! I mean, I totally sucked ass and lost, but it was still a good time for free - so what else can a girl want?????
Anyway, I added a few new links of some new poker friends, so check them out and to Fire And Guy Blogger guy - I can't find your blog. Please send me the link - post it in my comments or something and I'll add you. I thought it was fireandguy.blogspot.com but that didn't work. There was no such blog.
By the way, if there is anyone that reads this blog that I didn't link, also feel free to post it in my comments and I'll add it for you. Obviously I haven't really been keeping up with this blog much because I've been in and out of jails and institutions and whatever else. But, I enjoy it and want to keep writing, so I'll have to clean it up a bit. I realize that a lot of the links don't even work anymore.
Let me think of a nice little prison story to tell before I head to bed....
I think I left off when I was the Main Prison. I had gotten out of the "fish tank" and was able to order coffee and sweets and cards and all kinds of good stuff. I know this is going to sound funny when I say it, but I'm nothing if not honest.
At the main prison, they had a track where you could work out, they had a library you could go to everyday and check out two books everyday if you wanted, as long as you returned the others. They had a gym with exercise equipment, they had aerobics classes, they had curves for women and a tennis court and all kinds of recreational stuff like that. I hesitate to tell you this because it sounds like a "country club" in my mom's opinion and I can see why you would think that.
So, I worked out a lot. It was summer time and I liked working out in the gym because it was air conditioned - I did walk on the track a lot though cause I got a really good sweat going and I felt like I was really accomplishing something when I was sweating. I also got into the Insanity Workout when I went to Fire Camp, but that's later on in my stay.
But, there was lots of horrible stuff too and mainly I would say it was the violent people and the lesbians. Every chick there that has to do a decent amount of time hooks up with another female to pass the time. I mean, maybe not all of them, but you wouldn't believe how many of them are in relationships. I was shocked. I even saw two grandmothers, around age 75 or older making out in the gymnasium one time. It was insane. I had to poke my eyes out. Who wants to see their grandmother making out with another old lady? Not me. So, I had to be really careful who I became friends with because I didn't want to step on another girl's toes and piss someone off cause I was talking to their girlfriend or whatever.
You had to watch out for Shower Sharks too. Those are females that follow you into the shower and watch you. That's it. They don't even pretend to take a shower of their own. They just follow you in there and watch you. It's uncomfortable. A lot of times they hit on you too. That's why it's better to take a shower with a friend - Safety in Numbers. I dunno. That place was seriously a zoo. I was there for 3 weeks after I got out of the fish tank. So, I just had to deal with it for a small amount of time - but it was long enough for me.
Almost every fight I saw when I was there was a result of someone being jealous over another girl. There were these two girls that were dating and it was such an odd sight. The one girl was black and she had dred locks and she was about 40 and the other girl was like 19 and she was white with red hair. The black girl had AIDS and everyone knew it. She didn't hide it. She might of even been proud of it. I dunno. So, these two would hold hands and makeout all over the place and it was just a sight. I literally had to stop myself from staring cause it was just too weird.
Then, there was this really cute girl, her name was Denise and she was dating another girl named Bubbles or Giggles or something like that. Well, Denise broke out with herpes sores all over her face and her cell mate was NOT happy. She literally packed up Denise's shit and made her leave the cell. How do you make someone leave the cell???? Well, she packed up her shit and put it outside and closed the door. Denise tried to go to the sick ward, but the cops wouldn't let her. Denise was very scared of her cell mate that kicked her out. So, she sat outside the cell and started crying and finally, another girl came up and started hitting her so that the cops would come in and break up the fight and they both went to the hole for fighting. See, that's the thing with prison. You can tell the guards that you are sick and they won't believe you . Or you can tell the guards that there is going to a fight and you are being intimidated - and they don't care. So, the only way to get moved out of someone's cell is to do something they will punish you for. And then you go to the hole. And that's no fun. You can't even take your property to the hole. So, if you go to the hole and you have a TV or a CD player or any food, they pack it up for you and hold it until you get out of the hole. Denise figured she'd be safer in the hole than in our unit and she was probably right.
More to come....
