Anyway. I have been doing a little writing, following the Civil War thread and realizing that I am WAY under educated on the topic. But whatever. It's ficiton. If the citizens of the Commonwealth of KY can create a Confederate heritage, I can certainly make up details about life in an era about which I know nothing.
I have also been reading and stuff, and here's a rundown:
Okay, WOW. I had been studiously ignoring everyone who was so excited about this series. You know, YA, not enough nekkid parts to keep me interested. But I gave in, and WOW. It's like, Lord of the Flies and Survivor combined. And, okay, I didn't actually read Lord of the Flies in high school, but I did read the Cliff's notes, so I know the gist. I'll be chasing down the next two in the series soon.
The Big Guy and I watched this last night. Not the most original concept, really, but Good VS Evil always works. Great Abs and tattoos help, too. And an angel/zombie apocalypse is always nice. The ending was a little corny, but fortunately it came at...the end...so it's not like I had to overcome major corniness to enjoy the bulk of the movie.
Speaking of corny:
|Rob Lowe: This look says it all: "I know I'm going to make an even worse Navy SEAL than Charlie Sheen, this mustache itches, and I have to fart."|
Ugh. I lasted about twenty minutes. I'm not sure if it was the ridiculous mustache, or the Officer and a Gentleman Wannabe-ness that got me, but I'm still shuddering a little. Thank GOD our boy Rob has recovered so nicely:
And finally, it's once again the season of the Vampire: True Blood is back!
I have to say that I was not terribly impressed with the first episode of the season. Too much going on, too many stories to get caught up with, and in a bizzare "Who Shot JR?" kind of a thing, Sookie experienced a bit of a time warp. If you don't get the "Who Shot JR?" reference, Google "Dallas".
The second episode was better, but Bill isn't looking so good. He's got kind of a Dick Clark thing going on...his hair is too dark, and it contrasts poorly with the sexy little signs of aging that would go nicely with salt-and-pepper hair. There was a lovely scene of Bill doing nekkid stuff with...someone...but I was distracted by the fact that The Bearded Wonder and The Big Guy were both in the room with me while it was on, and honestly: The Bearded Wonder IS an adult now, but I don't need to know that HE knows where to put tab A. Fortunately, we DVR'd it, so I can go back and watch again in slow-mo without my offspring around.
And hopefully next week, there will be more ERIC!!!!!
