I finished The Handmaid's Tale last night.  I really can't believe I read it all in one day.  It's been a while since I've like a story enough to do that.  Especially one that long. 

There must be a front moving through the area today, I've got a horrible headache.  Compound that with some real moronic stupidness by people around me and I'm in a somewhat foul mood.  Good thing I've got a good venting buddy.  *grins*  It's just hard to see people purposefully missing the point.  I'm going to give it a lot of thought in the next weeks but I may be ending a friendship soon.  I think it's just getting to the point where I can deal with it anymore, it's frustrating to see the mistakes and the heartache that's being inflicted on those around them.  Sometimes that good old logic train just misses people by miles, and repeatedly.  There's only so much I can do to help them, or to be supportive, sometimes you just have to leave them be.  *shrugs* It's getting to be time for the latter.

It's also nice to be asked things I've discovered. Nice to be included. I'm not so deluded into thinking that I should be involved in everything, but damnit it's nice to be wanted. I'm tired of people pussy-footing around and pretending if they mention something in front of me, I'll just mysteriously know that I'm wanted. It doesn't work that way anymore. Grahfuck.

So what did you think of The Handmaid's Tale? It's one of my favorite books.

Good luck with your friendship. It's never an easy decision.
