Do you ? :( :cry:
Looking up Randy Quaid , I saw he'd played Lennie in a made-for-TV version of it about 1980...I've never seen that , but I saw a 90s theatrical movie (on TV :P ) with John Malkovich as Lenny .
Do you ever feel like Lenny :( ?
Oh (and I feel compelled to say :P :wink: ) , and I've read the novel several times over the years !

Yes, sometimes I feel like Lenny. And I've been metaphorically shot in the back of the head by people who have cared for me, many a time. "For my own good," of course.

But, yeah, I often feel like Lennie. Then I remember that I clean the litterbox everyday and have never squeezed one of my cats to death. So that's something.

I squeezed one of my lizards to death once. Accidentally. His name was Abraxas. :(

I seen part of that movie when I was in high-school. I haven't read that book sense then so I may be geting the characters names confused but I think lots of people offline see me as Lenny. Lots of my classmates thought I was retorted

How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.
