Random catchall

  • I took my daughter for proper Under Things Fittings/Shopping this weekend, and she got over her initial embarrassment quickly when she saw that she would get pretty bras out of it. Lol. Thank you, Nordstrom's for being awesome. And for having a sale.

  • Now if I can only convince her that she doesn't need to buy boots in August when it's still 100+ degrees outside. School is in SIX DAYS AND CHANGE, YOU GUYS.

  • I love buying school supplies, even though I don't get to use them. Oh, Trapper Keepers with multi-pockets, you are still a delight.

  • Real Housewives last night: ASHLEY GOT HER ASS HANDED TO HER. Partly. I wax philosophic in this week's recap. Also, I go off on Teresa's evil children:

"The crew looks as if they’d like to electrocute themselves. Milania, the holy terror, starts brandishing knives and when her eyes roll back and smoke starts to pour out of her hollowed eye sockets, the photographer says nervously to his PA, “That’s insane, we have to shut it down.” He tells the girls with a smile to “rest a bit.” The PA rushes off to find an exorcist.

An hour later everyone is in a new wardrobe but no priest could be found, so Milania starts babbling in four languages at once, the baby lifts her shirt to show that “HELP ME” is being written from the inside of her body, and Gia does her best Ashley impression by hating everything and everyone and just wanting to be left alone to do what she wants to do.

The photographers flirt with death by saying, “Thank you Gia, I know that was a challenge for you!” when they wrap her part up. Don’t be surprised, photographers, when you wake up in a cold sweat to see the bug-eyed Milania sitting in the corner, your parents’ hands in her mouth, their blood dripping onto her white tulle dress."

Also: I had naughty dreams about Albie Manzo. I blame his diamond push ups from last night's show. (What on earth??)

Guys, IDK about True Blood. I mean, yes, I'm still going to watch it, I've said this for four seasons now. BUT WHAT THE HELL. SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT.


  • I love Eric. I do not love four year old with a boner Eric. I love Pam. I do not love unable to kill and destroy Tara Pam. I was totally rooting for her to kill Tara, what does that tell you about my love for either character? I'm so over Tara, it's not even funny.

  • I THOUGHT JESSICA REALLY KILLED HOYT. And, um, I kinda wished that hadn't been a dream. And I like Hoyt.

  • Jason doing push ups is a delight and unf-inducing.

  • Is it just me (of course not) or is the sex really boring? And kinda weird? ANNA PAQUIN LEARN HOW TO MOVE YOUR BODY. Fuck, I'm tired of saying that. Also, I was promised hot shower sex and I got weird IKEA fur throws on a log cabin bed in the snow. NO.

  • I love Aunt Petunia, I enjoy the story, but I wish she'd decide on an accent and stick with it.

  • It's almost over, right? OH. TOMMY AS FORTENBERRY. LOL x forever.

  • Quit making me like/sympathize with Debbie fucking Pelt. She was a cunt in the book, I want her to be one on the show, too.

I need to buy new school shoes for everyone today. My life is a whirligig of excitement, I know. (And Hoarders is tonight! My new boyfriend Matt Paxton is on it, be sure to tune in.)

[ETA] my husband just said the most romantic thing to me ever: "How about I start cleaning the closet and bathroom and I open us a bottle of wine?" I WANT TO SAY "I DO" ALL OVER AGAIN. <3 <3 <3

I think I need a moment. *fans herself*

I totally recreate that commercial from Office Depot with the dad riding on the shopping cart as "It's the mooooooost wonderful tiiiiiiiime of the yeaaaaaaar!" plays. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

When I was a child, the next town over had this old time office supply store, ancient even then, with all of the different kinds of order pads and whatnot you'd need for any kind of business. I remember being TRANSFIXED by them, especially the ones that went in... god, I can't for the life of me describe them with words, and I'm sure they have name but since I can't describe them my google-fu is abysmal. Anyway, I LOVED that store, and my mother would let me come home with the oddest pads and forms to play with and hoard like Smaug and his treasure.

I love me a good, extra-fine point rollerball pen with black ink; I recently bought a package of new clicky ones that are DIVINE, and I have them scattered throughout the house in important places. One day mr. muse wandered off with one, and he nearly lost a few fingers when he didn't return it fast enough.

I can't do really fine point roller ball, I push hard when I write. Gel ink pens are a blessing for me. I loved when my dad did his own bookkeeping back when I was a kid because all of the accounting ledgers! The tear off checks in the massive folders! I LOVED OFFICE SUPPLIES.

Still do because I know how to party like a freak. :D

Oh, I like to write with a very gentle glide. I used fountain pens for years in high school and college. I had to give it up in grad school because the commute on the train banged up the pens too much. I can't stand ballpoints for how hard I have to write. I will go to the other side of the hose to avoid a ballpoint. (I should just throw out the ancient ones we've accumulated, but mr. muse doesn't mind them.)
Aug. 15th, 2011 11:12 pm (UTC)
My son is like me, pushes down too hard. I blame violin training for my strong fingers. :D

I will be sure to only send you fountain pens, then and keep all the gel/ballpoints for myself

It's not just you, but the sex this season really is kind of boring. I was hoping for some really good Eric sex since we were denied that last season. *sigh*
Aug. 15th, 2011 09:47 pm (UTC)
It really is, right?! I have been WAITING FOR YEARS for these scenes, and I'm just... meh. Alexander Skarsgard should not ever induce YAWNING IN ME.
Aug. 15th, 2011 09:40 pm (UTC)
AGREED HARD on True Blood.
Aug. 15th, 2011 09:48 pm (UTC)
FEH, I SAY. FEH. And a meh, too.

The last time sex with Eric was awesome was right before he staked Talbot.

ALTHO LOL AT SOOKIE GRABBING HIS ASS SO DELIGHTEDLY. I may have shrieked aloud. srsly i am like an old mexican lady watching telenovelas or something, all shouting at the teevee.
Aug. 15th, 2011 09:59 pm (UTC)
YES THIS. OMG, Why are they ruining the two proper vampires on the show, WHYYYYY?!?! Oh, PAM, please kill Tara soon, regardless of King Bill (puke.)

I may have watched a gif of her stroking his PERFECT ORB of an ASS a thousand times already.

I woke the Mr. up a few times cackling and cursing, as well. IT'S LIKE WE'RE THE SAME PERSON.

I always loved new school supplies. Mine, unfortunately, were always liberated from wherever my mom or dad worked at the time. Purloined legal pads and Bic pens still remind me of growing up.

I've always found the sex on "True Blood" weird and off putting and that is what finally made me stop watching. There was always so much of it, and when you can make a fit naked body look awkward and sex between people make me recoil, you're not doing things right!

Pitching in on cleaning is awesome, refreshments are de rigeur!
Aug. 16th, 2011 06:48 pm (UTC)
I looooove new supplies. I lol'd at purloined legal pads. Ah, those were my junior high/high school years. :D

The sex IS weird and off putting! I agree: if you're making me not want to watch Alcide/Eric have sex, you are DOING IT WRONG.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES. *___* My weakness is adorable hardcover planners (even though I just use a cheapy wirebound) and trapper keepers and mysteriously roomy backpacks with fancy pockets and enclosures. And colored pencils. And multipens and fine-point click-top gel ink pens. (You gotta have a click top.) And Lisa Frank stickers. Alas, I am in college, where they frown on glitter glue use.

I don't even want to think about boots in this weather. Where I'm at, stuff keeps catching fire, too, so it's hot and humid and sinus-irritatingly smoky, and just, ugh.

Re: True Blood, I knowwwww. I had heard there was supposed to be a "twist" to the shower scene, and I totally thought they were finally going to cross the line into period sex, because, come on, vampires. And even that would have been kind of boring. Then they just had sex on V in Narnia? I mean, I didn't see it coming, but that's because there's been way more impressive hate sex even just last season. There was more impressive sex while high in season 1. Bo-ring. Over it, over it, over it.

I maintain that Alan Ball hates Rutina Wesley. I don't get it otherwise. She always has super horrible storylines that manage to be super unsympathetic in a show full of horrible, unsympathetic people. And I'm really irritated that we had to sit through all the Hotshot rape horribleness and it's been pretty unnecessary to the plot besides setting up Jason and Jessica, which is also stupid. If Jessica is bored with Hoyt, a piece of Stackhouse ass won't solve anything. Particularly your potential uncle-by-marriage-by-vampire-daddy. AND EVERYONE'S ACCENTS ARE HORRIBLE, OH MY GOD. *Spanish language cringe* Some of it is the writing, I know-- "My tio came back for his Jesusito!"? Buh? I know from Spanglish, but who talks like that? But the Shady Dame From Seville needs to work on her distinthion.

The latest travesty, I think, is the Ghost Lady. I'm not sure if she's supposed to be Haitian or what (and if so, this is another case of really getting the accent/dialect wrong, but whatever), but even for her flashback... I mean, it was Louisiana. I think Ball's weird anti-Southernism comes out in a LOT of ways, but he just really doesn't do his research, either. Miscegenation and mixed-race kids were/are pretty common and were much more tolerated in LA than in other places in the southern US. It would be a bigger deal that the Phantom of the Bellefleurs was uneducated and poor, and that Ol' Boy was married than that she was a "Negress." *history finger snaps*

Everybody's hair looks pretty good this season, though, I will say that.

I LOVE CLICK TOP GEL PENS. I go through them like crack.

UGH TRUE BLOOD QUIT MAKING ME FFWD THROUGH ERIC SCENES, UGH. And yeah, what the hell with HOTSHOT if they're just going to throw it away!?

WTF ALAN BALL. (I got the Ghost Woman was Creole, which would make sense.)

Yes, you promised me that there would be sexy shower times. I was deceived. They lied to me. Also, Anna doesn't know how to talk intimately. That was painful to hear on their faux Viking bed.

lol well let's hope Debbie gets as close to the book as possible. BY THE LETTER.

I always buy myself nice pens and pencils. Omg what do I do with myself.

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.
