Dear Readers 8/18/18

Dear Readers,
Howdy! Blessings to everyone!

Okay, so I guess the biggest news in my life is that after 6 1/2 months, I was FINALLY able to replace my mp3 player which was stolen last January. OMG, I am SO glad to have it back! Honey(s), I am actin' a fool again!

So I don't think I've ever shared this, but I love to play my mp3 player and strut around the track at rec. There's a couple of black guys who sit by the track and yell "Runway!" when I walk by.

I probably haven't mentioned this, but I was a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show model. Okay, perhaps not this lifetime, but that is one of my goals in my next lifetime. Y'all, I have to keep practicing 'cause all the younger bitches are simply CLAWING their way up to take my crown as a supermodel! I have a whole playlist dedicated to strut music. I'm tall and skinny, and when I was with Josh, he always said I had the best legs on the compound. So anyway, I get to be a hot mess while I'm walking the track, and I'm feeling myself (figuratively).

I mentioned Kevin (KP) recently and, for the past couple of weeks, we haven't spoke until today. Prior to that, I had been feeling used 'cause he would keep coming in and raiding my locker just before lockdown. Then he'd leave shortly after, and that's all I saw him. No thanks. And I told him so.

I guess he needed something today or felt like he was not getting much attention, so he decided to "forgive" me and come to my cell. He acted like nothing had happened. So just today I'm out $6.50. How does he do that? I even told him that he could go back to not talking to me 'cause I'm a lot better off. He just scoffed and told me I didn't mean it.

No, really, Kevin. I do.

I think part of his reason for "forgiving" me is due to the fact that I've been hanging out with Mason recently. Mason was here last year (or so) and went home. He's now back on a "violation" until next May.

Mason is HOT, has a great body and, on top of all that, he's a nice person who will hang out with me on occasion. He even did yoga with me last week. We were supposed to do it again tonight, but it stormed and they had the rec yard closed after dinner.

Unfortunately, Mason is not boyfriend material for a few reasons—and isn't interested, really—but I have such a huge crush on him. I genuinely enjoy spending time with him. So I hope we'll remain friends till he leaves.

Now it's not that Kevin wants me as a boyfriend. I'm sure it's just 'cause I treat the guys I'm with like kings, and he doesn't have anyone else horning in on his fringe benefits. God, that boy drives me crazy.



Oh my gosh, I am the worst at this! It's been almost a month, and I still haven't finished this!

By the way, a few weeks after I got my new mp3 player, my radio was stolen! Awesome. And those leather "security devices" for the charger? Someone stole a friend's mp3 player by slashing the stitches and popping the rivets on one side. Those people are such trash!

I'm still hanging out with Mason and still being annoyed by Kevin. Things were kinda slow at "work" (typing), but this week I've been super busy.

And now we're all planning for Hurricane Flo. It's supposed to hit North Carolina this week, and they're already threatening to luck us in our cells when it hits. Awesome. So I suppose I should get this in the mail.

Until next time, I wish you...

Love and blessings,

P.S. OOPS! My friend JT, whom I'm typing for, asked me to include a flyer of his book, Kippie the Christmas Kangaroo. Please check it out!

Hi Kelly!
Sorry it took me so long to respond... If you even remember your little notice to me written last november. I indeed am the same Julia.
I am fine, hope you are too. I got some quotes for you from Groucho Marx. I hope you enjoy them, if you dont know them already:

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.

I must confess, I was born at a very early age.

Humor is reason gone mad.

Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

Warm greetings, have a good day
