prehistory

I am of the strong belief that everything everyone does they do for a reason. In most, if not all, cases everything that people do is justifiable, although not necessarily right. One of the most horrific things I ever saw was the movie 8mm because in that movie the 'bad guy' has no reason, no justification, he just likes causing pain. Like I said, quite probably the most horrific fictional thing I've ever seen.

Anyway, the point of this entry was to tell my prehistory - the stories of my parents and my name. My mother is from London, England and my father from New York, USA. My parents first met when my father was hitchiking in Sardinia, Italy, and my mother (along with some friends) picked him up. They met again in London when my father payed a surprise visit to the hospital where my mother worked. Their marriage was not a big thing - it was incited by a call from a doctor's office. My father's response to hearing that they were to have children was "it'll be just like having puppies."

Anyway, that's my parents meeting and marriage - there are many other stories I could tell, but I wont... after all they're not really my stories. The other thing that is perhaps worth note is the origin of my name. Shortly before I was born my mother's brother Michael killed himself. I was hence named after him. It should also be noted that my mother's other brother Terry killed himself, although I'm not sure whether that was before or after Michael did. Aparently I'm quite like Terry.

Well, that was a trip down memories-of-stories-lane.

Gary, what are you, an idiot? It's quite easy to understand. Michael I hope you don't think of that as a sign or something. I think it's a terrible burden to name a child after someone who committed suicide, it's a constant reminder not only to them but to those who loved the one who killed themself. yet it's compellingly loving to for her to name her child after someone she loved so dearly. However, being "apparently quite like Terry"; dont take that as a sign either. I'm probably getting the wrong message but i hope you dont see yourself as dying my your own hands eventually. I certainly dont think suicide is something that runs in people's genes.
