MSTK3 - BoM

Tuesday ramblings

I think HDJM might be the only place for people to enjoy themselves when talking about Hannibal, given the HUGE NUMBERS of new visitors we're getting. (Which is awesome!) I checked a few places that were linking to Sam's recaps, and wow, people are wanky out there. (Duh, it's tv, it's a new show, people be cray.) But it seemed like a lot of people were just showing up to yell at people for watching the show? WEIRD.

Game of Thrones continues to rock my freaking socks. And I am SO SO GLAD that I didn't read the books, because I can enjoy a powerhouse of a television show without wank, without trying to sort through the differences, and YAY. Smartest decision I've made.

(And there are recaps for Vikings, Orphan Black, Dr. Who, Bomb Girls...loads of stuff for you to read/talk about - and as always: WE ARE JERK-FREE.)

I had some intensive dental work done yesterday (it's elective, so I'm not asking for pity. YOU DON'T PITY PEOPLE WHO ASK FOR PAIN, lol) and I think I've mentioned that my dentist is Mormon? Like, small town Utah Valley Mormon? All of her dental hygienists/assistants are Mormon, too. So I get in the chair and hear them talking in that Utah cadence (if any of y'all are from there or spent time in there, you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about) and it all comes rushing back. I seriously love these guys, though. They are the epitome of sweet Mormon woman. Everyone's a cutie or doing their best, everything gets summed up with hope or positivity, and nothing but smiles.

And my dentist found out that I used to be a camp director for my ward (parish) when I was in my early 20s. She's the Young Women's President (which means she's in charge of organizing the yearly camping trip) and spent most of my appointment trying to convince me to become Mormon again. Or at least help her. HAHAHA. So funny. And the thing is, I would LOOOOOOVE to do the camping stuff again. Oh man, that was the best part of being a teenage girl in the church.

But become Mormon again? Ha! HAHAHAHAHAHA. Ha. Heh. No, thank you. And now, with that in mind, I dust off my manuscript about growing up Mormon and peck at it some more.

QUESTION Is there anyone out there that is familiar with wed design (back end stuff) enough to help me with my bandwidth getting eaten up? I'm sure there's a tweak I could make or a plugin to use, but I don't know what it is. Anyone? (HDJM is on Wordpress.) I would like to stop paying for increases, you see. =/ (But I want the increase in traffic, yes I do!)
