Jellis? Oh my goodness, I sat out on my lounger yesterday, aside my glistening, glittering pool, and read a trashy book as the sun baked my legs. I am so ready for the cold weather to be gone for several months. Today it's getting up to 70, so I'll be trimming the rose bushes and doing some general tidying. I like how I sound like an old lady when I describe my plans. Ha. (Trashy novel: Blameless, the third in the series by Gail Carriger, super fun Victorian/Steampunk/Supernatural romance series. I read it in a day, if that tells you anything. Nothing heady, just fun.)

NOW. *hand clap* I had my lovely sister and my lovely buddy Deva (he played Bone in Blood on the Highway, the hot guy?) design a new banner for Hey, Don't Judge Me and I think it looks great. How about you? [/shameless]

Also: Big Love review is up (it's finally getting good, imo.) I'd love to discuss it over there, come talk to me! And in addition to Jersey Shore, Big Love, SouthLAnd, and Being Human getting reviewed, we have the new incarnation of Spartacus up, and Misfits to come soon, too. YAY, BUILDING MOMENTUM with new writers! (I am not writing those, btw.) If you like the website, maybe you add it to your reader? Maybe you tell others? Maybe you continue being awesome, is what I'm saying.

It's a fine day, today. It's also Valentine's Day, and I'm not a big celebrator of that day, but for those who do, I hope you have a lovely one filled with whatever it is means love to you, be that chocolates, cards, what have you.

Speaking of, I think today calls for brownies. Oooh, or carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese and coconut frosting. OM NOM.

[ETA] one day I will have rotating pics in the TV screen on the banner, but I don't know how to do that. So you know. If you do, feel free to drop some knowledge on me. :)

I made a half-sheet of brownies for Chris' work last night and vanilla bean ice cream. I'm sad I only got to sample those brownies, and therefore, declare you should make them!

BROWNIE BOTTOMED SUNDAES. Beth, you are brilliant. I am totally making those. (And seriously, THANK YOU for the tweaks, I think it looks outstanding.)

Only five episodes left? *weeps*

So, these Danites. Are they the ones who hunt down John and Lucy Ferrier and Jefferson Hope in A Study in Scarlet? I've always wondered about that.

I can't believe there are only 5, I know!

And I have never read that book so I have no idea.

Ah! It's the first Sherlock Holmes story and it totally slams the Mormons. I think you'd really enjoy it.

Oooh, I'll go snatch it from my son's collection, then!

OoOOH, I <3 the Parasol Protectorate series! So much fun, and a different take on vampires and werewolves with all that excess of spirit stuff. I like that, refreshing. And minimal on the trashy. There are no 'throbbing manhoods' or 'dewy petals' or what have you. Blech. Also, I am hella jealous that you have warm weather in Texas after JUST getting snowed in a little while ago. We, here in PA, celebrated hitting 46. Yay! Above freezing!

They really are fun books, right? And by trashy I mean that they're not meant to be high brow, they're just straight romance books (and far better written than most, am I right?)

WARM WEATHER. That's how we roll here. :)

YAY I THINK SO, TOO!

The series is fun, but the sex is tapering off. MOAR SEX, PLS. Lol.

CARROT CAKE, RIGHT?!?!?!

(I am so happy you're coming on board, you have no idea!! I've been wanting you for ages. Do you have my email? We need to get online together and set you up in the back end.)

LOL, Liz also chided me for my use of "back end." THAT IS WHAT IT IS CALLED, LADIES. ALso, I want to stick my email in your butt. WHAT.

OK, I have to run my daughter's Valentine's Cards up to school (woe!) and then I'll email you and we'll get going. HOORAYS.

NO PROB. (Back end means getting you in the system so you can log in to the website and post.)

I'll catch you tomorrow, then, huzzah!

Agreed. First book had hot scenes that were well written and not porn, though HIGHLY SUGGESTIVE (Hello, hot Scottish werewolf!) and now it has..kinda...faded. BOO! MORE HOT WEREWOLF.

I'm saving your website up like dessert for when we finally get to see the latest series of everything - and I'm SO pleased to hear that Big Love has improved because I was kind of worried how it ended on the last season. It was a case of how they hell do you go on from there?

I think it's taken about four or five episodes to get somewhere great, so hang on with it.

I am so ready for the cold weather to be gone for several months. Today it's getting up to 70, [...]

Please do not remind me. Please. I just got my girlfriend her V-day gift: a one-way ticket to Spain for me.

As in I am moving in with her. To Spain. Where the heat is going to kill me, but it will be oh so worth it.

The banner is awesome, you got some talented peeps to back you up.

Pfft, Spain isn't hot! I live where it's Africa hot. :D But just thing, warm weather = less clothing. I'M JUST SAYING.

And thank you very much! I think so, too.

The banner looks great!

BROWNIES! I hope that won! I actually am not a huge fan of carrot cake, though, so I can hardly be considered impartial.

With the rotating pics, wouldn't that part of the picture need to be a different...frame or... *cringes* I really don't get coding or anything with fancy graphicness at all. *hands*

I think they did an awesome job, too!

No carrot cake?! CRY. We went with carrot cupcakes and cream cheese frosting, but as they're almost gone, brownies will be on the menu tomorrow!

Yeah, I have NO CLUE how to do a lot of this and am bumbling around. I'll figure it out? Or find someone that is all smart? Hee.

I ATE SO MANY TINY RED VELVET CUPCAKES TODAY OH MY FUCKING GOD

I am unwell. And none of them were stuck to Tom Hardy's dick, which was the cruelest betrayal of all.

Feb. 14th, 2011 11:29 pm (UTC)
CUPCAKES ARE THE BEST. Unless you eat far too many of them, and how is that even possible? Urp.

That is THE cruelest event of the day that I've heard, oh Liz, how are you? Can I get you a glass of water and a burp cloth? *kisses your fevered brow*

Okay, that banner has a totally charming Bewitched vibe going on. Brava and bravo (as applicable) to you, your sister, and Deva!

Feb. 14th, 2011 11:30 pm (UTC)
That is EXACTLY the vibe I was going for, so HURRAH!

LOVE the new banner.

I'm just now catching up on my reading. My beloved Mac lappy went out on me last week...IN THE MIDDLE OF BEING SNOWED IN! and I haven't been able to get my TV Addiction from you. It has been hell, let me tell you. HELL I SAY.

YAY, thanks Mel! (We should maybe talk about some cross promotion. Also, I'd love to put up a review of your book as a guilty pleasure <-- because I'm an old lady, not because of your writing, etc. etc.)

I AM SO SAD YOU COULDN'T FIND OUT ABOUT SAMMI AND HER RENEGADE HAIR STRAIGHTENER THAT TOOK OVER THE SHORE. That's thuper thad. ;)

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.
