I’ve been recording the season 1 of True Blood that plays Sunday at 1AM. I know I’ve got the Blu-ray season set coming to me next week, but still, can never get enough of nekkid vampire butt (should so be a delicacy!). So last night I sat down to watch the most recent episode, which was the season finale. After it finished, HBO played a little teaser for the new season. I had to pick myself up off the floor. That was the first one I’d seen. So in my infatuation with the series (and the books — more on that to come), I dug up the trailer and a promo videos.
This is the one I saw (and check out Alexander/Eric – swoon):
Awe.some. Just plain awesome. It’s no secret I love Eric. I just finished the 9th book, Dead and Gone, and loved it. I felt it was too short and that she left a bit too much hanging, but all and all, still loved it. I can’t wait for the next one (which I’ll have to — Dead and Gone was released May 9th). Lots of Eric goodies in it which left me wanting more, more, more.
But back to the trailer/sneak peek… I wasn’t sure how I was going to get over the freaking whack job that Bill turned. Jessica’s voice and whiney attitude just grates on my nerves. But at looking at the sneak peek, it looks as if Sookie sort of takes over and helps – and wow. Total improvement. At least in that scene. Now if they’d kill off Tara. She is NOTHING like she is in the books and that bothers me tremendously. Not that Jessica is in the books at all, but Tara, on tv, is so very different.
Where looking at one month and one day and 45 minutes to it shows. Now if they’d just give us the full hour we deserve. I love HBO but this 52/53 minute crap is killing me.
Here we are at the end of the month. The end of April. It was 92 degrees today. After being 96 yesterday. Where did Spring go? My poor tulips have bloomed and got burned to a crisp the past few days. Major bummer. No wilting, just the evil, evil sun burning the edges of my beautiful parrot tulips.
On the positive side of the fast-moving seasons, May is just around the corner. May is a big month: May 5th is the release of the newest Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead and Gone, and then on May 19th comes True Blood in blu-ray. I only ordered the blu-ray version because we missed out on the series in HD and I really want to see it in HD. (Uhm, cute nekkid vampire butt in HD? Definitely!) And let’s not forget the release of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Can’t wait to see it – one I am very sad to have missed in the theatre.
June is a big month too with True Blood starting up again. I was reading something somewhere that said that Allen Ball knows Eric is a big part of the books and will hold true to the story (while adding in other characters) – I really hope it’s true. Eric is a HUGE part of the books. Really, he’s why I keep reading.
July is TwiCon. Can’t wait. I purchased the plane tickets for my sister and I and have us getting to Dallas with plenty of time before it officially starts. I think we’re mainly looking forward to meeting the stars of the movie. Sad that Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won’t be there — but hey, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli and Kellan Lutz MORE than make up for it. :) And… to add more fuel to my love of Twilight, Michael Sheen, who played Lucian in Underworld: Evolution and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, is playing Aro in New Moon. WOO HOO. Although, funny he was a werewolf fighting against vampires and will now be a super powerful vampire.
And then that’s it. That’s my big summer plans. The theme seems to be centered around vampires, although, it’s not something I can help or intended. ;)
Here we are, December 5th. Over 11 months of 2008 under our belts and not much to show for it. Time seems to be flying by so quickly lately.
Most of the TV shows are done for the year, not coming back until January or later.
All of the things I wanted to have done by now are not done. Matter of fact instead of losing 15 pounds, I’ve managed to gain 5. Yeah. Tell me about it. My heart is in the right place — I joined a new gym – Retrofitness. However, I have yet to go. Not my fault, I’ve been sick and with a wicked cough, I’m more likely to hurt myself while on the treadmill. I’ve fallen off of it while completely healthy. No need to tempt fate.
In positive news, I’ve seen Twilight 2x in the theatre. I’ve got a secret PC copy that I haven’t watched in it’s entirety yet. Been busy. I have more Twilight stuff and I also was able to grab two “seats” for the meet and greet at TwiCon next July. OMG. I get to rub elbows with some of the stars of the movie! Can you believe it? So far, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene and Michael Welch are coming. WOO HOO. Sigh. I so need to lose weight. This is going to be one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done. I will not ruin it by feeling like crap about myself while there.
I’ve got most of my Christmas shopping done. Its not much this year. Plus I was just let go from my second job because it was sold and my work contract doesn’t allow me to work for competition. :( Ah well. It was 50 hours a month. I will miss the $ though.
You know, I have to say thank you to Supernatural and Criminal Minds. Without them, I would never had thought I’d like the music of Ozzy Osbourne or The Stones. Seriously. The music in these shows just grab at your heartstrings and make you love the characters even more. Ok, so on to my regular ramblings…
Did you ever have so much to do that you just didn’t know where to start? Yep – that’s me today. Not that I have to do everything today, but I have Halloween cards sitting next to me that have half addresses on them (because I need to get the addresses from my mom), bills that need to be paid before the end of the month, prescriptions that need to be mailed out (because the $^#&$^% prescription plan wants all maintenance drugs ordered through mail order), rooms to clean, goody bags to make, groceries to go buy, work to do (so, ok, that’s really scheduled so I know when to do that, but still…), friends to keep up with, Christmas gifts I need to start making and so on. It’s enough to tire out Wonder Woman never mind little old me! And those things aren’t even the fun things I want to do. :( I want to digiscrap. I haven’t in such a long time. The last page I made was this one:
Which was done last year, of 2006 photos. LOL, and then this one was the one before that:
So as you can see, I’m really on the ball here. ;) I want to really clean out the computer and organize files, etc. (I know, could I be any geekier?). I want to watch last weeks Grey’s Anatomy episode. I want, I want, I want. What I really want is more hours in the day. ;)
Sigh. Well, I guess I better stop writing about what needs to be done and just start somewhere.
