Horror-scopes: Is Misery's Annie Wilkes a true Aries?

Arguably one of Stephen King's most menacing creations, Annie Wilkes was born on April 1

At Christmas time, most people put on a some sort of Scandinavian style knitted jumper and crank up the Slade. Not me. I treat myself to a night in all by myself to wrap gifts and watch Misery.

Well, I'm never by myself at home thanks to my pair of elderly former street cats, who ironically my own mother claims are trapped in the feline version of Misery after I 'snatched' (i.e. rescued) them, neutered them and gave them a new happy, safe, clean life as housecats.
