Prompted by this web page on pangrams, I’ve been wondering what, if anything, my handwriting says about me.
I was also wondering about names. I find it difficult to have favourites or preferences. There is no name that makes me think ‘I wish I was called that!’ If I ever have kids I will definitely struggle to name them. Probably I’ll end up getting a baby name book, sticking a pin into it and settling for a name with some kind of brave or noble meaning and which doesn’t actively repel me.
Bought a book the other day about the Kercher murder. I seem to have developed an interest in high profile murder cases and serial killers ever since my father-in-law gave me a book about Fred and Rose West. I still don’t know why he saw that book and thought of me…
I wonder why there seems to be fewer female serial killers? Of course, there are some noteable exceptions, but… Perhaps more female ones have gone undiscovered so far? I appreciate that a certain amount of strength is required to carry out some types of killing, but I refuse to believe that women are intrinsically less likely to carry out premeditated and/or repeated murders. I don’t think there is a difference in the psychology of the sexes to that extent. In subtle ways, maybe, but surely killing is a very primitive act at its root?
On a more serious note, is there a TV programme concept in the universe worse than Signed by Katie Price?
