Everyone Loves Apple Butter

More scraps. I've had writer's block. I can only deliver bits and pieces.

It's been about 3 days since the city cleared out. At first I was amazed by how quickly everyone jumped ship. But with some thought, I realized these people were frightened even before the tragedy became clearly inevitable. These people needed Big Brother. These people were most comfortable in the flight path of a B-52. Of course their fright materialized so spectacularly when even the illusion of safety shattered above them.


"Aw, kitten," I cooed, picking up the mangy stray on the front porch. She nuzzled me and purred and gave me all that silly happy love kittens are worshipped for.

I needed that comfort all the more as my eyes adjusted to the night.

A hundred cats, at least.


Karma will come back around to you. And she won't be kind to such an unkind bitch. She'll show no compassion, because you've never been compassionate. She'll break you like you've broken so many. And what's really wonderful, what really makes me smile, is that she'll take the form of someone you trust. Someone you're starting to trust. Someone like me.

I heard you weren't feeling well, so I brought you soup, and toast with apple butter. Everyone loves apple butter. Halfway through you started vomiting again. You wanted to be alone. You thought it was just a virus. I'm sure it was. I hugged you, told you to call if you needed anything. I'm such a great friend.

I only wanted to hurt you, and I guess I did. I didn't think about your daughter finding it in the fridge. I should have. Everyone loves apple butter.

And now karma will come looking for me someday. Probably in the form of someone I trust. But at least it won't be you.

The Apple Butter "scrap" was chilling. It amazing how you can tell the whole story in that one little blurb.

JaneDoughnut said...

Thank you, Katie. I think concise is good, especually in the Internet age. Gotta cater to our short attention spans.

Lex Luthor said...

Nice doobie on Tisha :/

JaneDoughnut said...

There's a supervillain on my page making no sense! Paul would be so proud!

;)

Thanks, Lex.

Don't be a stranger Jane Dougnut ;/

Phil said...

Very intriguing site you have here Jane, so from your profile I see that you really get into Aliens and Zombies and such. Do you find it interesting to get into the macabre?

JaneDoughnut said...

Always. And it fills the void where gods and angels used to be. :)

Phil said...

Speaking of Gods and Angels have you ever searched for this word Cerberus

Oh Jane you might as well have a copy of this one too, might want to write an article on some of this stuff since you like Zombie stuff and when I find you some Alien stuff I will make sure to send you those too.

Michael-Ann said...

Jane, your scraps make a great meal :)

Anonymous said...

I am hungry.

feed me no scraps.

meow.

Lex Luthor said...

WHOA!!! OMG where did that stuff come from! Phil! You animal!

Phil said...

Dear Jane,

Lex and myself are worried about you and we just want to make sure that you are alright, I didn't mean to shake you or startle you with those links, they are all fake anyways.

Katie said...

My doG! Those links are revolting. What on Earth made you think those were appropriate to post, like, anywhere? Those aren't zombie pictures, they're sick, sado-masochistic, and misogynistic.

Disgusting.

P.S. Sorry, Jane, didn't mean to hijack the comments. I had to say something. Those were just beyond disturbing.

Phil said...

Hi Katie,

Those came from a site that clearly states Zombies so what you call sick, might be to some but since it clearly states on Jane's About page that she gets into Zombies and Aliens that is why I put those links there.

Now having said that, I have wrote to Jane and apologized for putting them there if that got to her.

Katie, you having been around the internet like it clearly seems that you have, you must know that there are tons of Zombie sites on the net and if you were to look at the originating site that those came from you will see as well.

Katie said...

Phil,

I guess we just have different ideas of what a zombie is. Call me a traditionalist, but to me this is what a zombie is supposed to look like.

Not cut up females set out as a feast for cannibals.

Phil said...

Hi Katie,

That is what a Zombie is supposed to look like is right but what do Zombies do??? I guess you can see then a somewhat comparison?

The area where those photos that I posted came from was originated from a Zombie site.

Phil said...

Hi Katie,

One more thing that I would like it if you take a special note on.

Are Zombies Cannibals or not?

Katie said...

I know that in the horror movies that zombies are basically described as cannibals. Vampires could be too if you think about it.

It was the graphic desecration of the women in the pictures you posted that I found the most disturbing, and whether they came from a site about zombies or not makes absolutely no difference to me.

If you can't see that point, then I guess you never will, and I don't feel the need to discuss it further.

Again, apologies to Jane for hijacking the comments.

Phil said...

Hi Katie,

Is it that the graphic desecration of the women in the pictures that bothered you but if they would have been graphic desecration of men that wouldn't have bothered you is that what you are getting at because there are some of those as well.

I am waiting for your answer to that one before I can fully understand your point.

You feel no need to discuss it because you don't want to explain yourself.

Katie said...

Phil,

Now you're just nitpicking. Yes of course, I would find those pictures incredibly disturbing had they been of men as well, but I didn't see any of those. So I fixating on the fact that I was seeing women who were being victimized.

If you want to discuss this further, we can do so at my blog, and stop bugging Jane with this. You know where to find me.

Phil said...

Hi Katie,

I'll be stopping by and we can continue our conversation, I do find your conversation on this matter interesting.

JaneDoughnut said...

Look, folks. I am not dead or angry. It's just that sometimes I don't get on the Internet for a day or two at a time. It's all good.

I'm not about to jump into this argument. It looks like most of the links have been deleted anyway... and something tells me that might be a good thing.

Michael-Ann, your a sweetheart as always.

Anon, if you're hungry, I've got links to some pretty good writers in my sidebar. (And I'm hungry too. I miss Smackalonian.)

Play nice! And thanks for all the comments. I feel very important and stuff.

Phil said...

Hi Jane,

Jane I am hereby apologizing because I messed up and I am sorry about that, also you should feel very important because you are very important.

You have a very nice blog Jane.

JaneDoughnut said...

No apologies necessary.
