As if it's really necessary...

Resolutions? That implies that there are things about myself that merit changing. I’m brilliant, I live next to a cemetery, and I’m this close to achieving my life’s goal… do I really need to change anything? Perhaps the company I keep…

Daniel, however, suggests that I attempt to do a number of things in this new year. I suppose, as an observer, Daniel may be able to better identify what I might benefit from working on. Then again, I figure turnabout is fair play this must go both ways, so I gave him his own list this morning. He didn’t seem particularly pleased. Ah, well. He’ll see reason eventually.

In any case, Daniel’s list for me:

1. Get me a new cat – maybe, if you’re a good boy.

2. Refrain from killing and/or bringing the new cat back to life in any way – this only applies if I choose to pacify him with a little vomiting hairball… we shall see.

3. Stop bringing back the dead – absolutely not.

4. Stop using your experiments as stimulants and actually sleep every once and awhile – I do sleep! Once a month is sufficient, really.

5. Get a job – my research is my job.

6. Get a girlfriend – ugh, no.

7. Clean the basement – he means my laboratory. This suggestion does have some merit to it. Filthy down here.

Well. A pet store would have kittens, yes? I suppose I could go… take a look on Daniel’s behalf. What do kittens eat, exactly?

An Introduction...

West. Herbert West. I can see that there are a great many people using this forum, so I'll be brief. That, and I have an experiment in progress. Five minutes to simmer should be ample time.

Yes, experiment; I am a medical student scientist and my primary area of study is death. I have been pursuing this topic for many years, and was even able to spend time studying with the legendary Dr. Hans Gruber, until his death (I assure you, any rumors you may have heard are mostly completely untrue!) and have since been continuing my research independently.

My research! Ha! My revolution, truly. You see, I have conquered death! My reagent has brought back a number of living things, including human beings... though my most successful experiments have been on pieces and parts of humans. You'd be surprised at how much a human head can accomplish independent of the body!

I live with my associate, Daniel Cain, who insists that I make it clear that my reagent does bring the dead back to life as zombies with some aggression issues. But the principle is sound.
