What's a personal bubble? - BOYS

Karma and class and random things

Everybody needs to go and randomly hug lissa_bear right now, she needs it.

Some poor lady next to me was working on her scholarship for next term and needed help printing her stuff (The printers at the college suck ass) so she turned to me and asked for help.

I told her what she had to do and told her we had to go and get her a print card to print it out. She looks in her wallet and it turns out the girl who was sitting next to her before I arrived stole ten bucks from her purse while she was typing.

People suck. I spent two bucks and bought her a print card and put money on it. I'm out two bucks but I have karma points for it, so now the next time I'm in a bad spot odds are in my favor that someone will doing something nice for me.

We played Criminal Jeopardy in class today.

The teams? Were: FUBAR (I came up with the name, it stands for Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition/Repair), Number 2, and Pen 15. Pen 15 came from behind and stood erect over Number 2. *Snerk*

This class consists of like fifteen, sixteen people, four of whom are guys. Today? We had 10 girls and two guys. So much fun.

Should hopefully have pictures of the teacher wrestling with the instructor on Wednesday maybe.

My Sleepy Blue Ocean Scrubs fic - Slash. Cox/JD but only a little and the fic reads like an episode. Really it's very good.

Someone tell them they need to fic now.

TrollPrincess makes me heart hurt when she writes Supernatural.

Randomly? Because of the movie Dogma everytime someone sneezes me and my Mom say "bless you" or "gesundheit." Even if it's just under our breath to ourselves.

Because I just saw it on a Dean icon I feel the need to say it.

"Good soldier" may just be one of the scariest things ever. It hits my gut just like "lets make a movie" did in BUtterfly Effect. I don't know if it's because I heard it in a movie or if it's because of Batman Returns but that line just makes my brain go to sad-bad places in a very ungood way.

I want to hug Dean now just for that icon.

In other news I have a few new icons and want to make a post because of Halfshell.

Prison Food and Real Food

Prison Food and First Meals Out

First lemme say that for once I'm not griping at or about anything. No fic or part of the show set this off--that's not true actually. It's all Halfshell's fault with her pop-tarts that got me thinking.

I have a snippet of The Fic That Never Will Be on my laptop and a tiny bit of it had a passing reference to someone going and buying "the food on the list." Why? Because.

See, here's my thing. In prison? You get shitty food and it scares your and scars you. The chicken you get says right on the bag it comes in "NOT FIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION." Your milk is gray and your eggs come from powder just like your mashed potatoes.

You can get commissary but that's things like soda and candy bars (food wise) and they go quick. I'm not going to go into Food Visits because Fox River wouldn't have them as a maximum security penitentiary.

During visitation you (Everyone with contact visits, so not Linc) have access to vending machines that spew out sandwiches and burritos and hot pockets and sodas and juice and milk and yogurt and those are amazingly good treats when you're inside.

However. When you're out in the free world and able to have actual food you go nuts on it.

My mom had chicken (Which she cant stand because of prison) that my grandma cooked, a glass (Four or five probably in reality) of milk, a can of Pepsi (Because you can only get RC in AZDOC) and a pack of Newports (Her brand of cigarettes).

Every last guy on Team Escapara probably has a list (mental or otherwise) of things they want to do when they get out, and each one of them probably has a list of foods they miss and want to eat when they get out.

Think about it. It's been more than twenty years since Westmoreland's had a steak. It's been seven years since Sucre's had a cheeseburger. T-Bag's from the south and anybody who doesn't think he's missing food has obviously never met anyone from the south ever. Hell, even Michael hasn't had anything decent in a month.

I'm just imagining their first night out. In my head they're in a Safe House because Michael has every single fucking thing planned and they're all writing down their orders. It's the anti "Last Meal," it's the first meal out.

Son of a bitch. I suddenly want to make their lists now.

Shit. Fuck it, if you'll all now pardon me I'm going to go grab a slice of pizza and then try and get home early.
