“I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago.” -Pam Swynford De Beaufort [Yes, I did just say Fangshion.]...more
Reading is the ultimate escape, there is nothing like looking up from a book and being surprised to see your own home.In point of fact, this is the ruler by which I measure the success of an escapist read. When my home seems less real than the world on the page.... well the author's mission has been accomplished. Here are my top three picks for immersive reads....more
True Blood, season 6, episode 601, "Who Are You Really?"@ 9 pm EST, premiered on HBO and it was fantastic! Check your local listing for viewing times. Is it weird that I live for summer (almost) television pretty much for this show alone? Who cares I love it! It makes me happy and I could be doing a lot worse. Anyone else notice that the cast is looking slimmer then before? Maybe the writers wanted them to look slimmer because everyone is either on the run or doing the chasing....more
This Monday started off great. For some reason I love waking up to a nice, heavy rainfall. The dark skies and lack of sun doesn't effect me in a negative way. It's calming and relaxing. Anyone else not bothered by rainy, gloomy weather?Today is back to editing my short story. I was supposed to be working on that this weekend but other than checking my email I zoned out for the most part. 2012 will not pass without my story being published, somewhere in some format. It will happen!My course is going well. My days are busier but that's to be expected....more
The Olympics was pretty great overall. Although I was a little consumed with them. It was a long 16 days. Some parts annoyed and incensed me. I let that out on FB & Twitter. The closing ceremonies were good overall, but long in the tooth. They could have ended after 1.5 hours and it would have been fine. They way they had the athletes jogging in I figured it was going to be a quick....more
If you are like me, your fangs are out and you are hungry for Sunday's premiere of the 5th season of HBO's True Blood. Just two more sleeps--or in the case of some of our Bon Temps friends, two more long days waiting silently below the cold dirt. ...more
Hurray! My mom is visiting us this week! But it also means my True Blood obsession would be interrupted or would it? I had to know what happened to Eric? Was he going to feed on Sookie? And where did my Alcide go? These questions rumbled through my brain.
It was 8:45 pm my palms were sweaty, my addiction needed to be fuelled...I looked over my Mother was quietly reading her Debbie Macomber novel. This was my moment to escape downstairs to my one favorite summer show and see what would happened next!
OK, I’ll admit it…TV and I have kind of been seeing other people lately. The only time I return to my beauteous LED is to watch Game of Thrones on HBO, which is ending soon for this season. (Did you see that last episode? WTF? But I digress.)HOWEVER, you guys? TV is about to get ALL SORTS OF AWESOME in the next few weeks. Well, that is, if you're into the shows I'm into. And you should be....more
