The bloody good news is that I was house-sitting this past week and caught up with
the current season of True Blood via HBO On Demand.
I'd just recently finished Season Two on DVD, and I was really bummed about having
to wait for a whole year to see where things went in Season Three (dodging spoilers all the while). As I've mentioned here before, True Blood is a pulpy kick. Season One is only available on DVD right now but HBO On Demand has all of Season Two, Season Three to date, and some extras to boot.
Once you’re past the early, kind-of shaky, exposition-heavy episodes, you won't want
to stop. The show has a bunch of fun tie-in websites as well, including the blog of newly turned vampire Jessica Hamby, which includes frequent short-but-sweet video entries. [Note: I can’t find a link that gets you there anymore; sorry.]
The bloody awful news is that on Monday night I was playing with scissors and, in the words of Dan Aykroyd as Julia Child, managed to cut the dickens out of my finger. I’ve found it powerful hard to work the keyboard with one hand, the other raised over my head, bandaged and throbbing, so I should ease up on the typing for a spell.
