So I am single again. Funny how these things work out.
For a good decade I thought that I couldn't be loved and that there was no way I'd ever be able to open my heart to someone again. I was wrong.
For that, I owe her my life. Perhaps someday I will write more about how I feel about this. For now all I will say is that I asked a strong, brilliant, and beautiful woman to share her life with a damaged man consumed with being the best father possible and despite the difficulties she made a good try and helped me to heal.
I have it on good authority that Arnold Schwarzenegger's (seen in the picture above) wife Maria Shriver dressed up as Princess Fiona from Shrek fame this evening. Her donkey stand in, Eddie Murphy was unable to attend, was an actual miniature horse which she led around on a leash during the trick or treating festivities.
The most common-sensical thing I heard said came Thursday morning, in a hospital interview with a student who'd been shot and was recovering. Garrett Evans said of the man who'd shot him, "An evil spirit was going through that boy, I could feel it." It was one of the few things I heard the past few days that sounded completely true. Whatever else Cho was, he was also a walking infestation of evil. Too bad nobody stopped him. Too bad nobody moved.
I'll tell you one thing, if I saw somebody who was infested with evil, I'd exterminate him. With prejudice. It's common sense.
I'm not sure what Digby is getting at but the quote from Garrett Evans rings scarily true for me. I'm an athiest. I have no attention for the concerns of most Christians and do not believe in their idea of evil.
That being said, when L went into her psychotic break and was holding K hostage I described her in the same way, "An evil spirit was going through that [girl], I could feel it."
It was as though one of my limbs had been chopped off and this evil creature was in its place. The horror of it was unimaginable.
You know the scene in the movie where the cop, or the bad guy, or the soldier gets their arm chopped off and they are seeing it for the first time and the blood is spraying out everywhere and they are just completely stricken dumb by the horror? Well like that; but much, much, worse.
