Well, that's not entirely true. I have things to say, I just haven't felt like typing them.
I attribute the problem to a few things.
One being "medical" issues. Everyone seems to have something going wrong with them physically, but I will touch on that another day.
Another being my new addiction to True Blood.
It makes me laugh that I like this type of thing now. When I was a kid, I absolutely hated anything even remotely scary. There was no way I would have watched or read a story about vampires, even friendly ones like Bill Compton or Edward Cullen.
I found I could watch True Blood On Demand from beginning to end and I bought the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series.
I started watching True Blood Tuesday and watched 3 episodes in one night, only stopping because it was 1:30 in the morning and I had to get up in a few hours. I have watched all but 2 episodes as of the time I write this. I haven't read the book yet, but that's more because I am too busy watching the show than anything.
If you don't like vampires, foul language, nudity (I admit, seeing Anna Paquin naked is a bit disturbing) or sex scenes, you wouldn't want to watch this, but if those things are okay on your list, dig in, it's so fun!
Part of the appeal of this show is beyond the vampire fun and the incredible bodies of some of these men, it's the setting. Bon Temp, Louisiana. You may be aware that New Orleans is my favorite place and I have been yearning for a visit. It's been a couple years already and every couple of years I have a need to go there.
The show is making that need worse while also helping ease it. The voodoo and accents and swamp setting makes me feel like I am there. Now, I never knowingly encountered a vampire on any of my trips, but it wouldn't surprise me to find out I had. If you have ever been to New Orleans, I imagine you know what I mean.
