I'm feeling good right now and was flipping through the channels and ran across "The Boston Strangler".
I remember being 7 or 8 years old and trying desperately to stay up past midnite to watch this movie - every year - never successful.
I have been strangely obsessed with serial killers since I was that young! I remember thinking that meeting Charles Manson would be so cool - what a mind! I was 9 yrs. old.
Then I proceeded to watch the movie about the Menendez murders from 1989.
I have no idea why I have this. It used to be funny to bring a new guy over I was seeing and the first thing he sees on my bookshelf is "The Encyclopedia of Serial Killers"! Only one guy actually laughed it.
This in turn made me think of an old friend I've grown distant from - Bonnie. She and I always had the "serial killer" in common. She's a little more into it than I am - she watches Court TV a lot :)
It was really nice to talk to her on the phone. And in helping her deal with issues - I cheered myself up and reminded myself of the power I have to create my own reality.
