1 beauty us

i live in the american gardens building on w. 81st street on the 11th floor. my name is patrick bateman. i'm 27 years old. i believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. in the morning if my face is a little puffy... i'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches.

i can do 1000 now. after i remove the ice pack i use a deep pore cleanser lotion. in the shower i use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub. then i apply an herb-mint facial mask which i leave on for 10 minutes while i prepare the rest of my routine.

i always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. there is an idea of a patrick bateman, some kind of abstraction.

but there is no real me. only an entity, something illusory. and though i can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... i simply am not there.
