Quick update

1. Planted 10 trees yesterday, 4 more are about to get planted and then I need to rip up the last of the sod, move a good 15 cubic yards of soil and a (literal) ton of rock.
2. Sent the Mr. to the day laborer camp ground (it's all air conditioned with food and water, too, in your face Tea Partiers!) to pick up some guys that want lunch, drinks, and cash in hand to help me.
3. Have watched way too much Criminal Minds as I'm all worried that there's a serial killer hunting them (there are no deaths, I've just been watching a lot of that show) and I want to warn them about "bad people."
4. OH HEY MY POOL ONLY NEEDS FOUR MORE INCHES OF WATER TO BE FULL.
5. Chemicals/pumps get turned on today.
6. We've been filling it up since Saturday. That's a lot of water, folks. 38,000 gallons.
7. I hated 95% of True Blood's finale last night. Lamest vampire fight EVER. Ever. (put "spoilers" in subject if you talk about it, pls.)

Okay, getting on my gardening togs and heading out back to rip up sod, till in healthy soil, plant 4 Leyland cypress trees (they're already 15 feet tall) and then mulch. We'll see if I have any energy left to start moving rock. That'll probably wait until tomorrow. THAT'S WHEN I'LL POST PICTURES. OH MY GOD POOOOOOL!

(OOOH, and tonight is the 19th Wife, which I am DVRing and the EPIC HOARDERS EPISODE. Eeesh.)

I LOVED ALL THE PARTS THAT DID NOT INVOLVE SOOKIE AND/OR BILL.

TRUE BLOOD SPOILERS
I DID NOT LOVE THE GODRIC IS JESUS PART. I KNOW, I KNOW, I'M A JERK. BUT YEAH - BILL AND SOOKIE TOOK UP TOO MUCH SPACE.

And seriously, why the hell can't Anna Paq STAND STILL and not look awkward? She is seriously uncomfortable in her own skin and it makes me CRAZY.

Re: TRUE BLOOD SPOILERS
I LOVED THE GODRIC IS HANGING AROUND AND LECTURING SPOOKILY IN HIS GHOSTIE!PAJAMAS PART that is what I am calling it and you can't take that away from me.

I assume that she is pants afire! from being in the same room with all those srsly fucking hot people. WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO STAND STILL AROUND ERIC OR PAM OR ALCIDE? Especially if your far less physically attractive husband playing Bill Compton was also in the room? NO YOU WOULD NOT. YOU WOULD BE HUMPING LEGS AND TAKING NAMES.

Re: TRUE BLOOD SPOILERS
I thought it was LOL-tastic, but I suspect I was supposed to think it was Meaningful and Special.

WELL YOU MAKE A CONVINCING ARGUMENT. (Except for how she's ALWAYS like that. Girl doesn't know how to be in her body with comfort, period. Bleh.)

Re: TRUE BLOOD SPOILERS
LOL my husband walked in, saw something on screen and said, "well, that's outta left field." I looked at him and said "Oh, that? THAT'S left field? THE WHOLE SHOW IS LEFT FIELD."

Mmmm, I agree with you on that. S4 better start with NEKKID ERIC RUNNING, OR IMMA CUT A BITCH.

IT IS SO PRETTY!!!! And seriously, it was HYPNOTIZING to stand at the edge with a hose watching it fill up. The Mr. and I had to keep reminding each other that we can't belly flop in just yet. (Um, esp. as there was barely 1 foot of water in a 9ft hole. O_O)

Re: TB spoilers
DOn"T YOU DARE GET 10 REdBUDS! You will hate it if so. One or two MAX, trust me.

HOYT AND JESSICA WERE THE GOOD PARTS. Bill/Sookie were so overwhelmingly awful that it overshadowed all the good stuff. MOAR PAM ALWAYS.

Eh, it's not bad, the water bill. And since I've not run any irrigation in almost 2 months? It won't be much at all.

OK, OFF TO GET SOIL WHEEEE!

True Blood
I think I was growling throughout most of the episode, between harumphs of disdain and outbursts of "NO! WTF?? GYAH!"

I am not happy with this season, overall. Though I did like the crispy critter version of Edgington. It was well done (heh).

I threatened Sookie that if she got back together with Bill, that I would seriously stop watching the show, and then she'd cease to exist. And just when she was almost taking him back, our beloved Eric shows up (how does someone manage to look so damn sexy in CONCRETE??? *melts*) and takes care of the issue for me. YAY ERIC!

Re: True Blood
I liked Crispy Russell, too, and thought that whole bit was HILARIOUS and AWESOME.

ERIC WAS THE HOTTEST CRUSTY MAN EVER.

Re: TRUE BLOOD SPOILERS
It didn't feel like a finale at all, right? I think that's why they had the Alan Ball "Please watch next season, please?" clip at the end.

I thought the vast majority (what didn't have Crispy Russell, Eric and Pam) lame lame lame. Didn't like the Tara stuff, the Sam stuff, the Lafayette stuff, and REALLY didn't like the Sookie Bill stuff. Hoyt and Jessica were fine, though.

I have given up on TB. Bill and Sookie make my teeth itch. How are they married?

It is so foul and humid and gross here, I can't imagine planting trees and moving rocks. It's all I can do to eat frozen bonbons and lounge about.

POOL! POOL! POOL!

They are horrible, right?

Oh man, it's SO HOT and gross out, I'm taking many break in between shoveling and stuff. Oy.

BUT I GET TO JUMP INTO A POOL WHEN I'M DONE.

Technically I could jump in right now, BUT. I want all of the surroundings finished so I don't have to worry about dirt getting in, etc. etc. The big strong hombres helped a BUNCH yesterday, but now the rest is all me. I better remember to eat my Wheaties!

The finale is on this week and I CAN'T WAIT! That's the saddest thing possible - a show I laughed at has become one of two? three? shows that I'm actually keen on watching during the week. Life is strange.

CAN WE GO ON HOLIDAY ALREADY?! Geez.

I KNOW. How is it that we're so invested in a show that's so terrible in so many ways? And then there's Eric and Pam and I love the show again.

HOLIDAY NOW PLEASE.

The final screened here in NZ last night. Yeah...it could have been better. (More Eric, more Pam, more Jessica...)

In case you haven't seen it, here's the online blog they did for Jessica, with a guest appearance from Pam. (Gotta love Pam...)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
