I'm listening to The Book of Mormon: The Musical soundtrack (and you can, too!) and laughing all over again. There are so many great LDS jokes in this musical, I just can't even. The nerdy dude and the "glorious male" companions, the "I broke rule 72 so I'm way worse than you!" line (after Johnny Cochran sings that he got OJ off.) So damn funny. "Jesus hates you this I know, for Je-sus just told me so!"

I just found the contact for their Press contact, and I'm trying to build up courage to ask for a press pass to try and see it to review. I like how my first attempt at an official press pass is for the biggest musical of the year, lol. DARE TO DREAM, KIDS.

I need to get off my duff and get going on my Game of Thrones recap (damn it, I am LOVING that show) also, I finished reading the new Sookie Stackhouse book while sick this weekend and I have to say that I'm getting tired of her not really resolving problems and dragging things out book to book. Also, I suspect that Charlaine isn't really interested in sex - but she's writing books with sex. Uh, cut that out, lady. Shit or get off the pot. What's this BS with one Eric sex scene? And Sookie acting like an old lady with her lover instead of being all gung-ho into the crazed sex like in the earlier books? She writes Sookie like an old church lady from Louisiana (lol, no, really?) and sometimes that cracks me up, but this book had Sookie ANTIQUING. Throwing a proper BABY SHOWER. With a SIDEBOARD.

Eff you, CH, write the trashy gingham Daisy duke wearing Wal-Marts shopping Sookie that likes getting plowed by the Supernatural. Ha.

And I swear to the God of your choice, if she puts Sookie back with Bill, I'm going to cut a bitch. I almost thought she was going to kill Pam, and I would have been pissed. Pam being all sad in the background was bad enough. (Also, why doesn't she get that she's written FAR MORE INTERESTING CHARACTERS than Sookie?)

Fleh.

It's going to get to 93 today. I wonder if you'll find me on a float in the pool today? (Hint: YES. YES YOU WILL.)

HAHAHA. This is why I live in Texas - WARM WEATHER.

...bring your own water wings. Mine's being used. (To hold my mugs of beer, obv.)

Yeah, I think I'm just going to read the older books over again if I need my Eric and Pam fix, instead of reading this most recent book, or any of the following ones. This is a case of not knowing when to finish with one character and move on. Same thing happened with the Anita Blake series. Except instead of getting more-prudey like Sookie, Anita dissolved into All-Sex-No-Plot, which I think is just as bad. It's character change, not character growth.

I totally did not just finish converting my illegally downloaded Game of Thrones ep so I can put it on my iPad and play it on my TV instead of my computer. So looking forward to your review!

I'm getting to be right there with you re: just re-reading older books. Sookie even has someone CALL her a prude and she clutches her pearls. Guh.

I'm writing the recap right now! :)

She clutches her pearls?! That's both fabulous and fabulously stupid.
Cannot wait! I just finished watching it and holy shit. Just holy Baby Moses with a stutter that was awesome! I love Lady Stark so so much!

Oh, that was just hyperbole. Sookie cain't afford her no pearls! ;D

Just posted, btw. I LOVED THAT ENDING, DUDE.

Aw, you had me all excited about Pearls and whatnot. The Antiquing would be pretty good, but pearls would have been perfect.
I am off to read your recap.

It's is all hot and humid and Summer all of a sudden - ick. I am so jealous of your pool! It was 98° (a record) here yesterday. It's going to be a brutal Summer.

Sookie antiquing sounds mesmerizing. How many cats does she have now? Is she knitting, too?

You need to write that Sookie fanfic right this minute. Sookie/Eric is my OTP. If I really had an OTP other than Zack/Slater

I am SHOCKED that she hasn't started collecting cats in the books. She didn't even lay out and get her tan (her one vice, we're constantly reminded) so talk about phoning it in.

Oh, I'm sure that there will be more True Blood/Sookie Book fic in my future. Whenever I'm unsatisfied with the source material, that's my go to. LOL at your OTP - Zack/Slater: were so in love!

You should totally try for that press pass! Bloggers get press passes all the time.

That musical sounds completely awesome.

I'm trying to figure out how to ask for one besides, "Lol, I'm a media blogger, I want a press pass to see yer show." I have issues with wanting to be taken SERIOUSLY, ZOMG. Ha.

Lynne, it is GLORIOUS. You have to listen to the whole thing. It's a wonderful send up of musicals, one, and two, it's freaking hilarious.

Maybe if you mention somewhere that you're an ex-LDS and are working on a book they'd give it to you?

Sookie is so much more annoying and stupid in the books, it's so hard to tolerate. I've probably thrown each book at the wall at least twice while reading.
stoney321
May. 9th, 2011 09:54 pm (UTC)
IDK how it works, so I'm just going to wing it, I think. Gah.

Isn't she?!? The books are just getting more and more dreadful, WHY AM I STILL READING THEM~!?

Why? Because you read the first 10 and you can't stop now. At least not until the final one comes out. You invested all that time/money into it, as rage-inducing as it is, you need some sort of resolution. I'm the same way with Degrassi.

At least we still have Pam.
stoney321

THAT IS EXACTLY MY PROBLEM YES.

Oh god, Pam, MORE PAM!!

OTHERWISE YOU ROCK ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF if you have the time and I will work on sparty season one. YOUR CALL, LADY.

Girlfriend, you do what you can do without blowing a gasket, it's all good. Also, WHAT THE FUCK WITH THIS SCHEDULING ISSUE?? That is too much. Are they allowing you to come in your pjs and drink lots of booze? Otherwise, I question their work ethics.

(We get so many hits for Sparty, no lie. THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN: They love you. I actually say you should do those, if you're of the mind. Huge hits for them, there have been messages of love on some of your posts recently, and they're funny as shit.) DID I SHOW MY HAND, LIZ? :D

Agree on Sookie!!

"I wonder if you'll find me on a float in the pool today? (Hint: YES. YES YOU WILL.)"

DUDE. Sometime in July you may have a fly in your soup pool. Or a Voodoo. You'll just look up and THERE I'LL BE.

I wouldn't really do that but oh I would LOVE to :D

SMOOCH. (I was afraid you'd take that comment as "OMG SHE'S A CREEPY STALKER CHICK." No, it's your pool. ;))

I'm still at the "gee, can I go out of the house today?" stage! BUT. I had a 6 month followup appt w/ my doc on Friday, and everything is going REALLY WELL. The "adapting" still takes a year, + or -, but everything else is going gangbusters :D AND NO PAIN!

Charlaine has said that that she doesn't understand why people ship Sookie/Eric because he's an evil vampire and OF COURSE her love interest is Bill.

WHAT?

This woman is horrible. If I knew her in RL I would be such a BITCH to her.

Make a spoilery post and tell me what happened in the book.

May. 10th, 2011 01:07 am (UTC)
WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT. How is Bill, who killed people, not ALSO an evil vampire? Jesus, she's putting Bill/Sookie back together?? It kinda feels that way in the book. *cough* you need the book for Kindle?*cough* because you should legally buy that. SHIFTY EYES.

Hit me.

When I can read it, idk, but maybe when I have to go to sanatorium to recover from my lifestyle. (I'm eating potnoodles for dinner at nine o'clock and feel like I've accomplished a lot to even eat.)

I suck, and still haven't seen BoM. :( I have a month before the Tonys! (lol yeah right, my friend can't even find a $300 seat for her birthday)

I can, however, provide a download to mp3s of the cast album, if you're interested, so you don't have to just listen to the NPR stream.

I saw the ticket prices - they're definitely Hot New Thing price level.

I (ahem) may already have one (it's from before the open, so the sound quality is seriously lacking) from you. If you have a newer one? Uh, YES, PLEASE. :)

May. 10th, 2011 02:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah, and sadly I haven't even had time to try the lottery to get cheap tickets or do standing room.

I'll PM you. ;)

It's absolutely fabulous. Matt really knows his musical theater - every musical episode of South Park is equally hilarious/well done.

SO YEAH VAMPIRES. I am way more excited about the new season of True Blood on HBO (where I can get predictably consistent Pam!snark and ASkars!nudie-butt) than I am about the new book, which I just downloaded started reading.

"'Fairies ain't lahk good Christian folk, Sam! Not that non-Christians an' fairies're bad, to say, but bless their hearts they just ain't as good as Christians.' Sam nodded, humoring the madwoman in confusion in agreement and understanding. Good ol' Sam. Sam whose unruly hair I want to lick my hand and press down flat. He understands that even though Claude is sexyfine and always naked and I like to look at his nubile perpetually-young manflesh, it's totally no homo non-incestuous! Because I'm just looking! Not Dermot, though. That would be weird."

So sad that there weren't more sexytimes in the book. I had such high hopes for Pam, mocking Sookie and Eric over, Lawd above us, three inches of singed hair. Girl, you work in a restaurant. If you haven't caught on fire or burned yourself already, you're ahead of the game.

My sister and I, who frequently speak the language of Nerdy Inside Jokes, have also stolen your "Southern Vampire Mysteries as Fanfiction" premise and run with it as Sookie writing fanfiction about her own life (vs. the uber-obvious Charlaine Harris projecting-- what's with the plus-size ex-pageant domestic-abuse-survivor with the crippled self-esteem and constantly adoring beau? SOOKIE WASN'T ENOUGH FOR YOU??). Also, my herp derp dog Sofie is Sofie Stackhouse ("Oh! Beg your pardon, excuse me. I'm just... going over here with this tampon. To do... tampon things. YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND!" / "BILL! You have a HAND. A hand for PETTING! But... Eric ALSO has a hand. HRRRRRRRRM!!"). Aaaaand Bill and Twilight-Jasper are Confed Vamp Bruhs and are always texting each other ("IDK, my VFF Beel?").

Such are the small pleasures in life.

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.
