Anyone with a TV and some time to kill today, pls pls pls check out Oprah to see my homegirl Jani Schofield, hallucinatory cats, rats and all...she's a schizophrenic seven year old who also happens to be a genius with an IQ of 140 something. She has hundreds and hundreds of hallucinatory friends. There are the rats (named after the days of the week) 400 the Cat, 100 Degrees and 24 Hours, and Sycamore Lendo (the cat singer), all living in a boiling desert world called Calalini. Clips here
if you want to see more.
Her parents are absolutely desperate for help as they try to get her education on track...so far, they're just being jerked around by the school district. So if this sort of thing interests you, ch-ch-check it out on Oprah today. And for those of you who are tired of me going on about this sort of shit, well...these are the sort of kids who will be in my classroom someday, so I have a vested interest in this sort of thing.
