Only In Montpellier

As I'm leaving my shrink's office this morning I run into girl I know from town but haven't seen in a few months in the waiting room.

Girl: Bart, how are you doing? I've missed you.

(She gives me a hug.)

Me.: Great! So you are seeing the crazy doctor too?

Girl: Yeah, just recently.

Me: Has she given you the electroshock treatments yet?

Girl :Not yet.

Me: Just wait. It's so cool. It's usually like a session or two after she moves you from the chair to the couch for the sessions. Then she does it as a surprise.

Girl: That is fucking awesome!

Me: Right?

Shrink: (Who has been standing next to us.) Just don't tell her about the evil that comes next.

(All three of us laugh.)


“Knowing too much about other people puts you in their power, they have a claim on you, you are forced to understand their reasons for doing things and then you are weakened.”

Margaret Atwood


There is an ongoing argument if the character called "Ripley"  in Alien Resurrection is really her or a creature that looks like her.

What do you think?

Ripley Or Not?
