I want to write a book about group suicides, esp via Internet chat rooms and such. I read this article recently that I can't find, but it was about a man who posed as an Asian female nurse online to coax people into killing themselves. He'd tell people that they'd commit suicide simultaneously over webcam, and then would provide them with info on the most effective way to kill themselves. He'd try to convince them to let him watch. Is that creepy or what? I also read an article about a Swiss organization called Dignitas that allows people to commit suicide (regardless of whether or not they have a terminal condition) in comfortable quarters with a cocktail of sodium pentobarbital in champagne. Maybe I'll write a short story and title it, "For the Love of Mors Voluntaria."
I feel like I'm sort of a nutcase sometimes, like I'm slipping into insecurity (and obscurity) as time goes on. I need to figure this out. Hmm.
Three days into it and already the 30x30 challenge is becoming difficult, mostly because I did not take into consideration that I need a lot of staid work clothes that appear to be similar. One of each generic item does not work when you constantly spill food/drinks/saliva on yourself.
I am also interested in researching ghost ships and comas now. Excuse me, but can anyone tell me (based off of my various interests) what career would have suited me best? Don't say writer -- that's something I'm still working on.
Pay day is always the best day! If anyone in the south bay has recommendations on where I should take my father (and the rest of my family) for dinner this weekend, let me know.
Things I want to do this summer: go to the drive-in, go to the flea market, go garage sale shopping on my bike, swim more often, gain a bit of color, pixie cut my hair, watercolor often, start reading more nonfiction, go on my first grown-up nonfamily vacation, drive a distance of over 100 miles, make avocado popsicles.
