PittGinny

Just another little note here…I used to love to read PittGirl’s blog, The Burgh Blog.  Then she went away.  She was writing anonomously, and stopped (in a nutshell) because she was about to be found out.  Well, I’ve been following her on twitter and facebook (as PittGirl) and today she revealed her identity.

She’s gotten a new name for her blog.  She’s writing for Pittsburgh magazine.  And she’s a real person.  And a mom.

Awesome.

I think that going ‘public’ has lifted an incredible weight from her shoulders.  I mean, could you imagine that feeling of not wanting to get found out?

Anyway, kudos to PittGirl Ginny.  Or as she’d like you to say, Your Majesty.

Worn Out By the Wicked

I’m going to talk about True Blood a bit.  So, if you’ve never seen the show (or read the books), just move along…come back tomorrow for something else.  :)

I know that I’ve discussed this before, but I have a serious attachment to the stories in the Sookie Stackhouse Series (the books).  At some points in time, it makes it difficult to watch True Blood.  I was very intrigued with the introduction of Maryann at the end of last season.  And, for the most part, I have enjoyed the new and original story line that she is involved in. (Except for the fact that they’re in Sookie’s house.  That is bothering me.)  However, I’m about done with that story line.  On Sunday night, I saw that there were only three episodes left, and it seemed that the two major story lines were about to mingle together.  Could be interesting.  I’m hoping that it happens in the next episode, because the whole “Maryann hunting after Sam” thing has started to bore me.

It was pretty cool when Sam turned into a fly.  Original.  Now, I went over to the Charlaine Harris website, and found a link to a little essay that she wrote for Borders.  I never thought about the fact that the books are COMPLETELY through Sookie’s eyes, and how logistically difficult that would be for a television show.

As she says, I’m trying to think of the tv series and the books as two totally different stories.  But I’m still attached to Sookie.  And I don’t like that bitch Maryann in her house.

OK, I feel better getting that off my chest.  So?  Only three more episodes?  That will take me into September, then there’s a new book coming out in October.  (It’s called A Touch of Dead, and I believe it’s a collection of the short stories that she has written).  I’m going to pre-order it through Amazon Kindle, so it goes right to my fancy schmancy new iPhone.  It’s only ten bucks if I do it that way (and, no shipping!).  It will probably be the first REAL book I read on my phone.

Yeah…I still love my phone :)

OK, back to normal mommy complaining and stories tomorrow!
