Hello Kelly
So what if you’ve gained 15-20 pounds. That just means there’s a bit more of you to love!!!!
Glad to read you are behaving yourself, and playing nicely with others. I’m a Brit and I sort of hate ABBA, I was young enough to remember how they were inflicted on us in the seventies. Still, the scene in the movie, Muriels Wedding when she walks down the aisle towards her apoplectic groom to the refrains of I do I do I do I do. If you get a chance to watch it, I highly recommend it.
Hope you get your cellie back

Hello Kelly.
Been reading your posts for a long time. There are many inmate blogs on the internet, some more popular than others. Between the Bars strikes a good balance between them. The state of America’s prison system and the captives that fall foul of the law system are laid bare now for the world to read. Some of the conditions and issues bloggers reveal here make conditions in third world countries with despotic rulers look like Club Med.
You seem upbeat and clearly determined to negotiate the passage of time with Euro Pop and a touch of ironically placed schadenfreude. It must be difficult in the prison system as an openly gay man. Even though, I suspect, ‘The odds are good, but the goods are odd’ numbers of potential companionship in your favour.
I wouldn’t do well in a double or more occupied cell. I don’t play well with others.! Also I’m old and grumpy now.
Being once part of Europe, now separated for them via Brexit I hope our divorce will be amicable. In that they can keep their music. I did enjoy Plastic Bertrands rendering of Ca Plane Pour Moi, which was an amusing little ditty I hope you heard. We have been blessed with American music for a while now, and ai much prefer this. Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, who I saw in concert, Earth Wind and Fire etc. Pretty much soul, R&B Rap too. Whenever my kids chide me about my age and preference for rap I remind them the Snoop Dogg etc are all in their middle years too. .
I have seen Priscilla Queen of the Desert several times. It was actually a West End show for a while, still might be, it ages well. I take my daughter to London Pride every year. It’s always a good vibe. Pretty much anything happening in London always is, it’s a great city. What cities in your country do you think have a good energy about them?
Hope you are well and eluding the virus. Look after yourself.
