I have a new obsession, plus RECS!

Holy crap, Oblivion. I've needed a new game to enjoy, and man, I found it. I still think Fallout 3 is the best game of all time (for someone who has never played any modern games before - last game I played extensively was original Zelda - it does the best job of building up skill set, etc.) but Oblivion is pretty boss. It's a MUCH larger world/game experience, so that's a massive plus. But trying to figure out how to play is not intuitive. There's kind of too much available too soon, imo. But I'll get it! Even if I die every few hours.

Who watched RHoNJ last night?! Good lord, that Kim G is the worst! I would love to actually meet her and give her a piece of my mind. Instead, I'll share it with you in my recap. Lol. Also, I can't be the only one that saw "Cats" in the holiday decor of the Wilkies, can I? So so tacky. I hate that kind of X-mas decor. Simple and heartfelt is best, imo. No gilt feathers and dancing motorized life-sized Santas, pls.

Quick mention about True Blood, some minor spoilers.

Want
more naked Eric and Alcide. (Good lord, Alcide's body is REDONK.)
more drunken Eric speaking like a happy and war-hungry Viking
more hilarious and earnest Eric. MORE ERIC.
more creepy baby and CREEEEEPY BABY DOLL shenanigans
Sassy Lafayette

Do not want
Hotshot creepiness
Anything with Tommy or his families
Anything about shifters YAWN
Any more V = drugs crap. Been there, done that



And now for a rec I've been sitting on for a few weeks. flaming_muse has been writing an A-MAY-ZING Kurt/Blaine first love/boarding school fic for a bit now, and I've been fortunate enough to be reading along as she's gone about it. Guys. I really think it's going to be THE story that people talk about, love, rec for a long time. It's sweet, earnest, and so perfectly captures that first time love feeling. <3 A chapter a day is being posted (It's finished!) and I'm forcing her to write a different version from Kurt's POV (which I think she's totally into, because she's awesome like that.)

GO! READ! Than The Sum Of Its Parts Give her feedback! That might grease the wheels to the companion piece, I'm thinking. :)

OK, off to round 2 at the ortho for The Boy (we had dentist this morning, ortho tomorrow, and then I am DONE carting people in this heat for the week. Ugh, it's been atrocious. Day 48 this year over 100. It's not even August yet. The pool is 92 degrees. That's till cooler than the outside air, but still. We're thinking of getting some big blocks of ice to throw in the water in a few weeks, because we're probably going to need it. Some rain would be great. Sigh.)

I am right there with you concerning True Blood. The whole Hot Shot plotline just gives me the creepies, and not the entertaining kind. On the other hand, I *love* drunk Eric. ADORKABLE. Regarding that entire scene with Eric and Alcide nekkid, embarassment of riches. Totally. Not much makes me blush these days but YOW.

Also, cutest evil baby in the history of ever.

I get that they think it's hilarious to have incestuous inbred uneducated folks all dirty and helpless, but that shit isn't funny how they're doing it. UGH.

Drunk Eric almost makes everything all better! Almost.

Yup. After watching the episode last night my husband (who had pretty much been surfing the net the whole time) asked me why Alan Ball has such a hate on for the Deep South. The show has such a great (albeit weird) touch with so many other issues. I mean, who else could make a possessed baby that adorable and amusing? When it comes to the Hot Shot stuff, though, its just depressing and icky.

I'm going to need a lot more drunk Eric if they keep this up.

It got really ridiculously anti-Southerner in S2, as well. I used to get really pissy about it, but I think most people agree that he's being a dick in those scenes. BUT THEN YES, POSSESSED BABY! With the dirtiest toy ever allowed to be played with, that stuff is hilarious.

The beauty of the DVR: fast forwarding through the crap you don't like. Which means I do that a lot when the episodes were like last night.

Oh, honey, you just made me tear up. Thank you. I couldn't have done it without you.

I couldn't agree more. I'd love it if they got rid of all the Hotshot/Sam's family/shifter storylines already and focused more on Eric and Sookie and Alcide and... even Bill. I don't care even a little bit about those lame little side stories that Alan Ball seems to love.

I have this theory that Charlaine Harris is actually a Yankee that created a personna of "Southern Woman" to write these books, and Alan Ball hasn't quite figured that out. IDK, some times it's just too insulting, you know?

MOAR ERIC. All of this hotshot/V addiction/Sam's new girl stuff takes away from the actual point of the show: NUDE ERIC NORTHMAN. :)

hahahah. you know she was actually raised in the Mississippi Delta and now lives in Magnolia, Arkansas and trust me, as a person who grew up in AR and lived 30 minutes from the Delta for 7 years...those story lines come from some real life experience. Except for the panther shifting part. hahaha.

I curse like a sailor when I see either Eric or Alcide naked. That's yet another reason why they boys cant be in ear shot while I watch my Sunday night stories.
Listening to their mom say "Good goddamn look at that mother fucker right there" probably wouldn't be a good thing.
I cant help myself though.

I mean HOW HOT WAS THAT SCENE?! Good lord, that body on Alcide. I might have to bump Eric for him, just because of those shoulders. *gnaws on them* My husband just laughed at me when I kinda moaned a little. Hahahahaha.

DEAR ALAN BALL

ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THIS FUCKING "DADDY-UNCLE" BULLSHIT

MORE ERIC. yes
MORE FUN DRUNK SWEET VULNERABLE STILL SEXY ERIC. yes. yes. yes.
MORE NAKED ERIC AND ALCIDE. 1000 times yes.

NO MORE BABY STORY. I am so uberly creeped out by this story line. I actually had a dream about it the other night. I was totally yelling at the baby, YOU ARE A BABY AND CAN NOT BE EVIL. This bothers me like whoa and damn. DO. NOT. WANT.

I hate Tommy but I totally felt sorry for him. His parents are the worst people ever. But so is Hoyt's momma. So he wasn't really better off.

This panther story line needs to fix itself. Soon.

Our AC is doing the best it can (we had a complete overhaul a few weeks ago when it conked out. Oy.) I feel so badly for the farmers out here - everything is dying, there's no water for crops of livestock. Just atrocious this year.

Hopefully you'll all be well prepared for any heat that comes your way. (Put the sheets on the bed when they're damp - ooooh, feels lovely to slip into at night after a hot day!)

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.
