Started reading "American Psycho" while in the hospital waiting room yesterday.

I understand why so much time is spent talking about what people are wearing, but it's getting a bit boring. I cannot understand how Ali loved this book so much. Everyone is so shallow, including the anti-hero so I can't even root for him to do something to them.

In light of today's school shooting in Kentucky, I gotta say, I'm getting a little annoyed with how public educators claim to "Miss certain early warning signs", Yet are stubbornly oblivious  to their role in causing this violence.

What role do public educators play in "causing this violence" if I may ask?

As Duke would've said, they need to start letting students arm themselves so they can return fire. That's the only answer.

Most of what B.E.E. has written is pure torture to the eyes, but I read American Psycho in early 2000, not long before my life went to pure and total s**t, and I have to admit, I got into it to the point I immediately read most of everything else Ellis wrote, and except for The Rules of Attraction, a smart novel with a truly....unique...beginning, I couldn't stand it.

When I was in high school my favorite English major pointed out Patrick Bateman kills (or in his delusions claims he has killed) exactly as many men as women, so all those radical feminists of the time screaming misogyny were barking up the wrong tree. Just because he writes about forcing rats into a woman's babymaker does not mean Ellis was against the fairer sex.

The book is also in a few places really funny.

The fight to take Confederate names off of schools & streets, etc, has me wondering if Bruce Lee would have to change his name...

Is it just me, or is anyone else bothered by the fact that in '76, Burger King ditched the cute cartoon, & after 40 years, are still using a caricature of Dick Gjonola, a noted vegan & animal rights activist?

So today I had to go into this methadone clinic for paperwork after the SWAT team left, and as I walked in this black lady with dreads asked how I was doing, and I said, "I remain God's gift to myself."

She gave me a blank stare, so I said, "I am extraordinary, if you'd ever get to know me, I'm just your average, everyday, sane psycho supergoddess."

Again, a blank stare.

What are the odds of some methadone clinic volunteer in the inner city not knowing an Oscar Wilde quote or a Liz Phair song lyric?

She did know her synthetic narcotics, though, which is really what you want in a methadone clinic worker.

I once interviewed a 102 year old World War One veteran who had shaken hands with Amelia Earhart.

We're about a month away from the start of the severe storm season that peaks April to June but can sneak up on you in March, or, heck, almost anytime around here, even Christmas. It's not a question of if we'll get bad storms, but just when.

Still, this time of year, mid-winter, you think you're mostly safe, but this afternoon after my youngest went off to kindergarten I had to go across town to see my lawyers about this ridiculous allegation of a supposed criminal violation of security protocol at my job (get bent, James, happy Valentine's Day), and as I drove on the circle interstate in light drizzle under gray skies, I noticed behind me the sky was suddenly charcoal colored with a deepening jade hue, and it was coming at me faster than I was driving on an expressway, and I thought to myself, ha, that's funny, if I saw a sky like that in May I'd worry.

Then all Hell broke loose, rain so hard visibility was nil, lightning and pea-gravel hail and wind that rocked the car, the road filled with water faster than it could run off, and I tell you, I think it was a close call and had it been seventy outside instead of fifty-eight....well....someone else would have had to carry on the long posts here because I think that was a swirly thing trying to form overhead. Nasty little sudden gust front indeed for about five minutes.

Well, my work is done here for another day. Goodnight, BMDO-ers worldwide. Radix malorum est cupiditas.
(The root of evils is desire.)

And to my boss, James, who reads my posts obsessively, get a social life, get some life experience, get a boyfriend, get a new job. You got twenty months under your belt? I got twenty years. The hearing's going to be fun, and I'll still be standing.

Ignore half of what I'm saying for a while, guys, I freely admit I am screwing with my boss. He can't fire me, only report me to those who can since he has no power, only a giant desk. Personally I suspect he and I both are going to get reprimanded. He whines a lot because he's a kid with no real world experience trying to act like he's somebody special. (Not my dad, the other boss. My dad's great.) I promise it'll end soon one way or the other.

Soooo, it's been a long hard morning of staring vacantly at interns in the office and posting in here about Nazi movies and interrogation techniques my boss knows nothing about, now off to lunch--- Northern Indian, no less!---with a man whose son I used to keep company with.

Shalom and fabersham til whenever!
