Cruelty is exciting to lots of people. For some reason it makes some people feel good when others feel bad. Especially when they are responsible. This is people in general not just girls.

Reminds me of that movie, Let The Right One In.

Heck, movies are the modern form of literature. Lots of people do not take them seriously. But today's writers and producers are stating their viewpoint much like novelists of the past.

I think I remember Tarantino talking a bit like that... he was given a lot of flak by some journalist for his work.

I like some of his movies very much.

Me too, although I have yet to watch some of his classics like Kill Bill.

I did send adriana two long mathsy e-mails, complete with worked examples about the gamma and beta functions, before this 10-day wait. Do you think that she doesn't want to reply, because she does not want to be impolite and ignore those long e-mails? I did the same to R when she wrote long, long e-mails.

The Kill Bills are classics. He is a very imaginative though weird guy.

Her worried about being impolite? I do not think so. It is impolite not to respond.

And I am 18 now, so I can legally watch it (not that I would have obeyed the age restriction anyway)...

It was an abrupt end, anyway. I would have liked to have ended on a nice, even number of e-mails, like 700. Instead we are stuck on 689.

Nothing to be done about that. Perhaps she wanted to end on 689?

Hmm, she doesn't keep count like I do.

No one has yet been able to challenge H's mighty record of 1652.

That may stand for all time. Where is she?

Hanh - 483

Holly - 82

PJ - 81

Katie - 63

I am going to put my money on F!

She is going to start a comeback?

No, but she is definitely a longshot and they pay out the biggest amounts.

Amazingly all the other girls' combined e-mail counts are still less than H's. That was some dedication.

Poor creature is probably wandering around looking for a kiosk so she can send more.

I think she realised that I will never be with her, so she just stopped...

She might be sending them to someone else.

That's possible too. Maybe she has found a crazy guy to complement her personality.

That would be the smart thing to do but it is not always possible. Take F for instance, if she found a guy like herself they would constantly be crossing the street to avoid meeting.

I suppose it depends on the personality type. For F, that would probably not work out well.

Basically, they all have pretty much the same personality when it comes to dating.
