TV Guide’s summary of The Trainer, a Lifetime TV movie:
A recently divorced woman joins a gym and quickly becomes friends with Alex, a young trainer. Unfortunately, Alex is psychotic and a murderer.
Yes, that is quite unfortunate.
The official synopsis by Lifetime, also listed on IMDB, adds:
Sadly Alex is psychotic and has been murdering her trainees for years.
Very sad indeed. A slight flaw in Alex’s character.
Sometimes you just gotta, man. Sometimes you just gotta.
From my old files. Drawn back in March 2008, these were the thoughts crossing my mind while I was planning out the route of my cross-country road-trip.
I should mention that ze birdies were very helpful in reminding me to take breaks while we were on the road. Because believe me, when a bird thinks it’s high time that you stop driving, it will let you know.
I had a dream last night, in which I had to fulfill a duty. Said duty involved going into a dark labyrinth and getting eaten by a monster. You know, that “for the good of the people” type of situation.
So of course I took with me some moisturizer and a Moleskine. Because obviously I have my priorities.
It’s a pity text messages don’t come in automatically threaded conversations, because it took me a few moments this morning to decipher why I was being woken up at 8am by a friend’s pithy message: “Male escorts.”
Admittedly, she knew there was a whole slew of meanings that could be imparted with just those two words.
