the way George shot Lenny

If you've never seen the play, you need to watch it. I saw George Segal perform with Nikol Williamson and and I thought they delivered a powerful performance. Joey Heatherton played "curley's wife" and made ME want to pet her pretty, soft hair.

"Of Mice and Men." Aren't we all?

I thought the version done by Gary Sinese and John Malkovetch was excellent also. That's one of my favorite plays of all time because NOBODY can win in it. It's all a question of how badly are you willing to lose.

I want to thank my ex-wife for teaching me those lessons. I never could have learned to really apprereciate that play without her. Jennifer, you are a creature to behold. I now know exactly what George was thinking when he told Lenny about the rabbits and shot him in the back of the head.

I wish I had never met your lying, corrupt ass. You've tried to kill me for almost four years now, but you did every bit of that shit the sneaky way. You wanted the law to roast me and you've gotten your way as far as money goes.

But you never felt enough hate or enough love to do what George did. You don't have a whole lot of wherewithall in your bag to begin with, unless you see the chance to fuck with A LOT of people. That opportunity puts you right back on your A-Game, and you can go crucify a few more People. You LOVE doing it, too.

I slept with you for ten years, and I gave you a son. I OFTEN recommended that there was a better way to win a fight than the scorched earth philosophy, but you knew better than that. You nuked everything. I once believed that you were like me, but you never were. You showed me that fact in spades.

That's the way you're made. That's why you have no friends unless you're attempting to googe something out of them and that's why you trade your pussy for favors. Yeah. "Have a GREAT day" as long as you don't have anything I want at the time. But if you have what I want, how about a piece of ass while we negotiate? Yeah, I'll fuck at the drop if a hat if I'm looking to get my way.

But she would never do what George did to Lenny to spare him from what was coming with the dogs barking off in the distance. To kill him was an act of love. Jennifer would have jumped up and started yelling "HERE HE IS! HERE HE IS! I FOUND HIM! HOW MUCH IS THE REWARD!!!"

I just love divas. They are so trustworthy.

(By the way, I've been banned on commenting on another Blogsuck site. I really wanted to bark, but I will not do it for these assholes. What are you people afraid of?)

Get the fuck over Jennifer!

Unless she is a prop for your site, and your emotional dribble.

Are you a fucking pussy, or what?

You are a whiner par excellence. Jennifer wins automatically because you frame your life by how she hurt you.

Aren't you bigger thn that?

Sheesh!

Bullshit! jb

Remember people only have the power to hurt YOU if YOU let them.
Vultures like her will kill you, but only if you let them.

Maybe I could change the subject..
Of Mice and Men was one of the best books I have ever read...
No woman will ever get the best of me.....
You have it going on Rob, I wish I could be so lucky.

I read that book as a freshman in high school and absolutely hated it. But I have to agree with the general sentiments of the post.

George Segal?

Joey "I was married to that Dallas Cowboy who couldn't keep his draw's up" Heatherton?

When the hell did you see that production?

1965?

Every so often JB has to try to pretend we don't know he's really a decent human being.

I think I saw that production with George Segal, Nikol Williamson and Joey Heatherton sometime in early 1970. The entire movie was in black-and-white and I thought that the lack of color really captured the mood.

Steinbeck was a socialst asshole, but he wrote some things that I really liked. "Tortilla Flats" is a magnificent book. So are "East of Eden" and "Cannery Row."

I read "Travels with Charlie" and wanted to drag the bastard off and shoot him. His view of the South and mine DEFINITELY are not the same.

But George did the right thing when he killed Lenny. He did it out of love, too.

I'm with you A-M, but you've _got_ to change the post title and stick in a spoiler warning.

I read that book for the first time about 2 years ago, and I have never cried at a fictional anything so much as I did at the end of that book -- and I would have been mad at anyone who had ruined it for me.

Don't give up on your son. If it were just the ex-wife involved I would almost be on the "get over it" side; but if your son has any wits about him, you will have a chance with him when he's no longer under his mother's roof. Good luck and hang in there.

Hello my friend,

I hate to hear such anger, rage and bitterness... it sounds all consuming and you seem to have much more to give to the world than resentment for the hole that once occupied your cock. I have been there myself, and mine is recent. Very similar situation... a liar and a cheat who said she had it all but wanted more... don't we all. Well, it is better to have loved and lost my friend and there really are other better women out there... just don't marry them. Live this life only once... it is your only shot at it.

Good luck to you,
Sulli
