Oh, I had such a great weekend with southernbangel. True facts: She's 10 feet tall, she can eat an entire ham while on a unicycle, she can recite all of Proust while drinking a glass of water, and she's an absolutely fabulous house guest, if a little too polite for her own good. ;) If you guessed that I fell asleep a few times because I'm lame, then you're a freaking stalker who obviously spied on us. In my defense: I did a 60 mile walk just days before and hadn't fully recovered, we drank several bottles of wine, and it was midnight. (I'm old - I'm all impressed now when I stay up after 11.) She continues on her plan to convince my husband that all women should know every minute detail about every football team ever. Last night as we were watching the Cowboys (I do NOT want to hear it, seriously. I'm so heartbroken over my team, and they finally limped back. Shut it, haters) and when I couldn't name the player that hit another random player in a game two years ago, he asked me to get Lee on the phone. (Lee doesn't even watch the NFL.) I'm being outsourced!
I started up on some crochet projects this weekend, and they are turning out cute. One is a scarf for the BFF that is Tim Burton-inspired. (Meaning: black and white stripes with a random shot of color here and there.) Damn, I wish I knew how to knit. I need someone to sit with me and hold my hands to get me started. I can't learn that stuff from books. Oooh, does anyone know of a website that has videos of knitting techniques, like the crochet site I linked to last year? That would be super.
I'm about to take my kitchen apart and re-arrange the shelves. I wish I had a professional organizer - I want compartments and drawers and cubbies for everything. Yes, I went to Ikea this weekend, and now I have a sickness. (All of their cabinets and drawers have anti-slam features!!! Ooooh, how I want.)
Okay, this show is MIND BOGGLINGLY STUPID. We know this. I'm just continually shocked every week by how stupid it is. Sookie Stackhouse: you suck. You're nothing like the witty, sarcastic, innocent southern girl in the books. Anna Paquin: stop being dead eyes. She just randomly stares at people, as if that is supposed to convey ANYTHING.
Now, while I'm bothered that the show is the Jason Stackhouse show, at least the actor can ACT. See how his eyebrows move? His face contorts? That's called ACTING. He's conveying how he FEELS. Isn't that wonderful? Now pay attention, Anna.
Raise your hand if you wanted to smack the new vampire on the head. That could have been interesting, it started off interesting, but then I just got irritated. Thank god for hot Ass Eric being sarcastic.
Raise your hand if you wanted Tara to die when she ran into that tree? Or for her Mama to drop dead when she came to visit her? That way we wouldn't have to hear about their souls and day-muns no more. BTW, the actress that plays Tara? DAMN. Her muscles?? Jesus please us.
And while I've known all along that Rene was the killer, it sucks that the one person that attempted a coon-ass accent and nailed it is going to be gone come the finale. Also, I'm tired of the wtfuckness of Sookie just randomly kissing Sam. Sam I get. He's clearly had a thing for her. But Dead Eyes? She just stares, spouts words, then kisses him. Then starts shouting - all with her deal, soulless eyes....
And I had no problem with Amy dying, because I was SIIIIICK of how everything was "beautiful." Take a bath, hippie, and wash that patchoulie stink off yourself.
GOD. That show is such craaaaaaaaap! Head's up: I don't care if you like it. I don't need to hear that you like it. It's crap, imo. You can like it all you want in your journal. :D
I cannot stress how happy I am that Twilight the movie is almost here. AHAHAHAHA, hoooooo, that is going to be such fun crap! I can't wait to see it and mock. *fist pump* I've been getting linked all over the place for my LDS Sparkledammerung series, which is v v cool, but understand that I'm not always able to reply to every comment. No offense meant, I just don't have all the free time in the world, that's all. (And I'm seriously behind on my NaNoWriMo count, argh!!)
Now watch me contradict myself by writing more True Blood/Twilight crap dialogue fic. \o/
[ETA] sorry for the broken tag, and I hope I didn't spoil anyone... Mea culpa!
This post is random, and all over the place. One last thing: does anyone have a really good quality pumpkin pie/dessert recipe that is elegant? Meaning, I don't want a pie that looks like a standard issue pumpkin pie. Anyone?
