A Perfectly Normal Weekend

A perfectly normal weekend with errands run and chores done.  It is Sunday morning and all of the normal weekend tasks are done.  Now I have to decide what I'm going to work on.

As always, I have a long list of things I could do but I've been really tired and feeling a bit blah.  I've also been sleeping a lot more than normal for me.  The last few nights I've slept at least five to eight hours.

To me this means I need to take things easy and let my body recuperate from whatever is grumbling around in there.  I've been watching Criminal Minds.  I've just started the fourth season.  I find myself creeped out, grossed out, and sometimes hoping the bad guy gets away with it.

There was an episode where a woman was killing men.  She was raped and the cops did nothing about it.  She "solved" the issue by enticing men away from their friends and killing them.  Unfortunately, they weren't the men who raped her but... I had a hard time blaming her.

Along the same lines, one episode was a high school boy who killed his father, his girlfriend's father and several people in the high school.  The fathers were abusive and the people at the high school were bullying him both in person and cyber bullying.  I had a hard time empathizing with the victims in this episode.

I know this is fiction but when you read the news and hear about all these things, it makes you wonder how sick the human race is.  At the same time I wonder if we treated ourselves and our children better if there would be fewer problems.

It is a complex issue and I know I'm simplifying it but this show makes me think about all sorts of things.
