Weirdest Dream lately :
I dreamed I was on the "other side" when my Dad was passing. I spoke to him and made sure he was okay. Then I woke, and knew he was gone. 30 minutes later, we got the call from the hospital saying that his blood pressure had crashed in the last 30 minutes.

Currently working on :
A BTVS related story called "Long Goodbye" which deals with a member of the Watchers Council being vamped as part of an experiment.

Physician, heal thyself

It will come as no surprise to those who know me, that I am a sceptic. When ever someone starts talking about UFO's or Ghosts, or Channelling, or Creationism, or Pyramid power, Crystals, or god help us, CROP CIRCLES, it's all I can do to keep myself from reaching over and ripping their throats out. An extreme response, I know, but I think if we all acted in the same way, there'd be a lot less of these charlatans to go around.

Now, I had this crazy idea that my family, not being particularly insane in anyway, might recognise a bullshit artist by sense of smell alone. Apparently not.

My sister, much as I love her, is an idiot. She is insisting on bringing a "Healer" in to see my Dad, who as I've mentioned before has cancer.

Now I know what some will say, "any port in a storm" and "what harm can it do" etc... Well, CRAP!

Every time some pansy-ass who can't face reality indulges one of these screwballs, they're making it a little more likely that the next suckers will be drawn in. Because THIS healer has a wealth of testmonials and references etc... which is why my sister wants him brought in. It's a self-perpetuating cycle.

This particular knob-end claims he works for free. But I'll bet you dimes to donuts that he won't be averse to a "donation" of some shape or description.

This is the 21st century. Surely we deserve to have come further than this?

I talked it over with my Dad, who is more tolerant than me. Not of healers you understand. Just my sister. He says she's trying to help, in the only way she knows how. And maybe he's right but she's going to lend credibility to this asshole, and that's something I can't stand.

If he looks for as much as a cent, I'll bounce him out the door so fast, he'll fucking DOPPLER. But if he tries to get my Dad to abandon the scientific treatment, I'm afraid I'll have no choice to but to kill him, and bury him in the backyard since he's a danger to humanity.
