True Blood, Two days Too Late

Does anyone out there still watch True Blood?

I caught up on the last few episodes last night and I am a bit miffed.

So, let me make sure that I am getting things right-

Eric and Bill are “prisoners” of The Authority but not really prisoners and The Authority is no longer The Authority, they are just a group of vampires tripping their balls off on Lilith Blood? (BTW, where can I get some of that? Reminds me of my younger years) Eric had a hallucination of his maker- Godrich, the man child- who told him that they were being assholes and to kill his sister?

Bill has finally grown some balls and is all aboard the human eating band wagon because he feels guilty about pretty much everything. It’s nice to see him finally grow a pair. Even if he’s a complete simp, I hope they finally do SOMETHING with him that involves personality.

(I feel like the whole- Bomb the True Blood Factories Story-line is amusing. It’s probably the next step the Arizona Government is going to take against baby formula.)

I love Pam. She’s great. If I was a vamp, I would be a lot like her in personality, but not  in the following Eric around like an idiot way. Ok, maybe in that way too. Take it for what you will.

She and Tara are adorable, although, I don’t think that I am properly upset about the whole Tara thing. She has always been one of my favorite characters so having her turned just ensures a story line for her. I am pleased.

I don’t really even want to acknowledge the Sooki story line but I feel like I have to. The first few years of the show have been focused mostly on her and took way to long to get to the God Damn Point. She’s Sooki. She’s a Fairy. She has big teeth. Yay.

She has the same look on her face in every frickin picture. 

It took how long to prove she was a fae, and now she wants to waste all her powers? Oh, uh huh! I have spent to much time out of my life waiting for them to finally come out with it and you are not giving it up that easily! I hope that vampire hunts her down.

I know that she’s meant to be country- but this show just implies that she has never read a book in her life. Am I the only one who thinks that her habit of “wandering” into trouble and hoping to be saved is getting tiresome?  Gee, lets go form  a psycic circle and see if we can connect with the big bad. I sure hope he doesn’t come find me..lalalala.. 

Everyone else is everyone else. Arlene is high strung about Terry, Layfette is fabulous in all ways, Jason is awesome. Flat out.

No one else is important enough to remember.

So is that right? Why am I watching this show again? Better yet, why did I just take 20 minutes to write out a short summary?
It’s like a train wreck that I can’t stop looking at and it’s one of the few things that Hub and I actually get to do together. We have been a little Lost since Lost… Sigh.

Maybe we should try Breaking Bad.. I’ve heard good things.

“Lifestyle” change

It’s a term that really can encompass a whole manner of sins isn’t it?  What is our Lifestyle? Is our lifestyle defined by our jobs? Houses? Sexuality? Education level? Economic Standing? Skin Color? DNA?  or is it something that is flexible with our personality?

Ollo Childrens

I have been bad. I have been very remiss in blogging about the nonsense that is going on in my life. This is mostly because the nonsense is nonsense and I don’t find much of it to be riveting enough for you to read about it.  That being said, I am working on a few new projects.

After my recent blow out with The Hub, there have been changes and there have been things that stayed the same. We are considering some lifestyle changes, most of which I am sure I will be posting on here. Let’s just say that things around the house are “in transition”.

I have some rants and raves to post, a majority of which will be alcohol infused and hopefully hilarious. (My expectations for witty comments is about as low as my alcohol tolerance)

Since I just finished a wonderful Saturday lunch at work, I figure now is the best time to get started on all that, except the alcohol part, I can’t do that at work.

I know, I know… you are all on the edge of your seats, awaiting my every word with baited breath..

If you find that you can’t wait (which I’m sure you won’t) you could always follow me on Twitter. See, it’s right there.. Just click it.  While I don’t have a ton of time to write blog posts, there is always time for me to re-tweet  the  thoughts of others. LOL.

I’m useless.

Another Extremely Easy Recipe

Crispy Onion Coated Chicken with Gravy and Loaded Mashed Potatoes 15 Min prep, 20 Min Cook.

First off, let me apologize for the poor photo quality. My  real camera went dead so I was forced to use the camera on my phone, which is less than optimal. Of course, the one time I have the presence of mind to take pics through out the process, I am without the right tools.

This recipe is another of our every-other-week eats. It’s super easy and pretty cheap to put together.  We usually have enough leftovers for Hub to take it to work for lunch, so that’s a Win as well.

Tension on the Homefront

Things have been a bit tense around our house lately. Hub and I seem to be at odds about quite a few things and I am running out of ways to be nonchalant about it.

For four years I have been begging Hub to get a different job. He works over night at a hotel, doesn’t make much money and is, in my opinion, wasting his professional abilities on a job that will never take him anywhere.
Working over night has allowed him to stay home during the day with Special K. This has saved us a shit ton on daycare, but it may well be costing us our marriage. Continue reading

Hey, Look what I did!

Saturday has rolled around again, thus it is time for me to review my week and inform you of all the fabulous achievements I have achieved!
I know, that sentence is so well written it astounds me too. 

I will admit, I haven’t exactly been dogging myself to accomplish my goal list this week, but I feel like I did pretty decent.  Continue reading
