The Girl on the TrainThe Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent psychological suspense. Started off slowly – in a good way – culminated in a wild ride for the last third of the story. I could not put it down. I don’t know if this has been advertised as a book about Narcissist Predatory Disorder of the malignant variety but it is. I started picking up on some early clues and arrived at the end shaken but entertained and thinking this should be required reading for anyone who doesn’t know about or can’t believe just how insidious this behaviour can be. Can’t say more without spoilers. If you’ve been in the protagonist’s shoes – read it. If you don’t think NPD is a serious form of abuse – read it. If you like great a great scary book – read it. This book deserves all the kudos that it’s been receiving.

I’m doing far more reading than writing now, making up for time stolen during “the lost years”. When I remember to, I’ll share from Goodreads. My taste for reading material is as eclectic as my choice of subject matter for writing; fair warning.

~ All of the communication skills ~

If you’re over the age of thirteen and still using “The Silent Treatment” as a method for conveying your thoughts and opinions…

The ONLY thing that you’re communicating is that you’re immature, cowardly and rude.

And. You’re a big fat meany-pants poopy butt head with a head for a butt! :p

Yes, You

Circle back
Drawing nearer
Ever closer
So it seems

I’d sell my soul
If I could only
Make this more
Than just my dreams

As the weeks go by I’m finding that even the most casual viewing stirs that old something in my deepest core. Some fires can only be banked; never fully extinguished.

So-o-o…

Spammers have reached a whole new low. One would have thought that lower than a snake’s balls in a wagon rut would be the lowest but no.
This AM, I received an email from a friend who died from brain cancer two years ago.
Fuck you Hackers and may the fleas of a 1000 gorillas infest your hairy bits.

While I’m on that…

Ladies, you aren’t going to get anywhere with me if your email subject line begins with “Desperate For..”, “Hungry For…” or “I’ll Keep U Up All Night”.
I really like a woman who can spell if we’re going to get up to some Pat-A-Cake and if you’re desperate… there are apps for that.

Just sayin’…

Washington State – You Suck

I emailed Gov. Inslee and I don’t live in the USA. It is lunacy to murder 10% of Washington State’s ENDANGERED GLOBALLY wolf population for the sake of two calves. Wake up and get a clue!

From Predator Defence on Facebook:

“Defenders of Wildlife, or Defenders of Livestock?

If you’ve been following our posts on the tragic and outrageous wolf slaughter in Washington, you have to read this piece. It’s about one of the environmental groups that abdicated responsibility and “authorized removal” of the Profanity Peak wolf pack. What they have done is appalling.

Our director co-wrote this article with Marc Bekoff, a Huffington Post contributor, who also happens to be one of the most educated and enlightened scientists out there and, with Jane Goodall, cofounded Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.”

From Predator Defence Website:

“How You Can Help:

Contact Governor Jay Inslee immediately and ask him to stop the slaughter! Insist he halt the Profanity Peak Pack wolf killings now. Then spread the word to everyone you know who cares about wolves, wildlife and public lands.
~ Rally with us in honour of the Profanity Peak Pack and to stop future killings. Join us at noon at the state capitol in Olympia, Thursday, Sept. 1.
