Why, oh why, do I do this to myself? I am a girl who needs her full 8 hours of sleep. I am in bed by 10:00 every night, sometimes 9:30 if it's been an uneventful evening. Why so early? I get up at 5:30, so if I'm gonna get enough sleep then I gotta go to bed early. I know, I know, bo-ring. Well, last night J and I stayed up until midnight watching HBO's True Blood. We watched the first episode on the night it premiered, and I thought it was okay, but couldn't get past the bad southern accents (the story is set in Louisiana). I mean, come on, the main character's name (played by Anna Paquin) is Sookie Stackhouse - puh-lease!!! We had set the DVR set to tape the series, but the episodes have been piling up as I haven't really had any incentive to sit and watch them. Then, by chance H2 mentioned he and GF watch and enjoy them, so I decided to give them another chance, and watched the 2nd episode....then the 3rd.....then the 4th...then it was midnight and we still have one more episode to go to catch up!!! I can't wait to get home and watch it! The story is based on Charlene Harris' Southern Vampire Series (8 books to date) so now I'm itching to read those too. Don't get me wrong, it's not serious drama - it's kinda hokey but a bit gory (and it's HBO so there's quite a bit of sex) and there is a plot twist coming regarding a certain character but I haven't figured out how it's gonna twist yet.
I'm hooked, damnit!!!
