My current obsession: True Blood. Ok, it’s been my obsession for the past 4 years. I might have read the entire series of books hiding under my blanket with a flashlight on a nightly basis for months as well. I eagerly watched the first episode on Sunday and suddenly got very sad. An opening with fairies shooting 1980’s laser beams at each other? This is not what I fell in love with. In fact, it was terrible. Midway through the episode, I thought about moving on with my life and on to something much more mature and mentally stimulating. Something like The Voice or Toddlers and Tiaras.
HBO redeemed themselves by putting the second episode online to watch the same night. Much better! I won’t spoil anything but I have been waiting for this Eric storyline to pop up for a long time…since I’m the loser who read the books. I am now excited for the show again and Pat will have to endure walking into our living room at the worst moments and wonder what is wrong with both this show and especially me. Everything is what I usually tell him.
My other obsession: The Beach. I think about it all the time, I just haven’t gotten there yet and summer has officially begun. Luckily, I have a couple short trips in July and plan on baking in the sun, reading a book and drinking a Mai Tai…or two.
We usually take one big trip every summer but we are stashing all of our money away for our wedding and honeymoon at the moment. Our far away travels will have to wait until next year. We definitely plan on making it a good one though!
What are your summer plans? I hope it includes corn on the cob, sprinklers and skinny dipping…at night, please god only at night.
