The ship that kills

The woman who loves all things serial killer was back at the library tonight. She can talk okay, but she prefers to hum and grunt. So if she has to ask an important question like "What kind of drug will make a person's veins dissolve?" she can do it pretty clearly. You might think this person would be kind of terrifying, but she isn't. She seems too incapable and disabled to really feel like a threat. She lacks dynamism.

Today she had her usual haul of checkouts: all your Ted Bundys and Mansons and the guy Psycho was based on, but oddly, in the midst of them all was a copy of The Titanic

I don't believe I've ever seen her with anything like this before. Perhaps she's on the verge of turning over a new leaf. Or... there's something about that movie I never noticed before.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
