Reading progress update: I've read 225 out of 399 pages.
Nightshade - John Saul

I want all these rich snobs to die. I hate people that harp about breeding, like only BAD people come from BAD families. "Know the father, know the son." Yeah, well, fuck you. My grandfather abandoned his son, and my daddy turned out to be a great guy. POTUS knows his family tree, and he's a fucking nightmare. Breeding doesn't mean shit. Especially since all these rich families are usually so inbred I'm surprised they don't have extra toes.

I would like to take a moment here to make a PSA to Gerry Conroe, the editor of the Granite Falls Ledger, and anyone else who thinks deer hunting is "pointless": deer hunting is good for the environment because deer reproduce rapidly and humans, being the stupid creatures that we are, have killed off most of their natural predators. This means they can keep spawning and spawning without any population control, and that, my friends, is devastating to agriculture. Deer can leap most 10 foot fences, and they are notoriously aggressive during mating season. Without people hunting deer to keep them in check, crops would be wiped out, top soil would erode and other animals would starve. Now, I'm not saying everyone is entitled to just go shoot as many deer as they please. No. You are only to hunt males, and only so many, and only during deer season. And for the love of God, eat what you hunt. Don't be that guy. I despise big game hunters, trophy hunters that shoot beautiful animals just for the horns, or the skin or a cool photo. With those people, it's not sport. Sport would be winning the hunt bare handed against the lion, not from 100 yards away with a rifle and a scope. 

 

But anyway, hunting is sort of necessary. A necessary evil, a lot of people say. Until wolves and cougars are more numerous in the wild again, animals like deer, rabbit and ducks have to be kept under control. Those are just facts. 

 

Now back to your regularly scheduled reading.

I haven't been able to read much lately because of my migraines. So I do audiobooks. Too bad Libby didn't have this one.

 

But here's a fun story. I saw my new primary care doctor to get things set up and running, and he recommended they run an allergy panel on me. I agreed because it has been 15 years since I was tested. I didn't think they would find anything, though. I was told I had non-allergic rhinitis. Weeeelllllll....not this time. The nurse tested me for 40 different triggers, and I came back allergic to a whole host of local Okie grass and trees, plus four types of mold and....CATS. I am allergic to cats. My cats. Kill me.

 

I'm about to start an aggressive regimen of allergy shots, and I have to carry an EpiPen for a while. But the treatment has a high level of success for those that complete it. It just takes 3-5 years. 

 

But they said that may explain why my migraines are so bad. I never had these problems in Tennessee because I wasn't allergic to the local flora there. I also only had one or two cats while there. Here, my allergens have quadrupled. 

 

My life is loads of fun, yeah?

This book isn't nearly as straightforward as I thought. There's a lot going on, and I can say for once, I do not know where things are going. I just hope Dara survives. I don't want to be liking this guy so much and then have him get hacked to pieces by an ifrit.
