Panty-poachin” party people: I know the Head Counselor’s cabin has been a bit dark and quiet lately, but I assure you that the Campers did not finally catch me unawares in my bed and set me on fire (or eat my face, which is what I think the kids are doing these days?).
I won’t bore you with the details, but since January Andy and I have been spending every waking moment (and many unwaking moments, Blair Witch 2: Book of Shit-style) on trying to buy our first place. We don’t need much – just a matchbox of our own. A fence of real chain link. A grill out on the patio, disposal in the siiiiiiiiiink…
No, forreal. It’s been crazy and exhausting and it has driven us as close to murder/suicide as the time that we watched that Prom Night remake.
But all is not lost.
Chris Meloni in American Psycho True Blood
As you may have heard, this Sunday True Blood returns for its 5th season on HBO. I honestly am not sure how I feel about the season based on the previews and the spoilers I’ve been hearing, but I am of course extremely excited to hop on the Crazytown Express back to Bon Temps (which is French for “Pretty Secretaries”, by the way).
After recapping the show for years, my pal Steven Frank over at AfterElton has hung up his wooden stake and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to pale by comparison when I start recapping the show for them every week this season. I’ve been recapping shows steadily there since October (American Horror Story, Shameless, Game of Thrones) and it’s really nice to be back with the fellas. The decision to commit to a recap back at the place I started covering the show to begin with was an easy one to make in many ways, but a tough one for one major reason: It will make it markedly more difficult for me and Andy to produce our criminally entertaining Blood Work! vlog recaps.
But yet again, all is not lost.
Against our better judgment and the advice of certified medical professionals, we are going to give it our best, kids. Who knows – the burden of a full-time job, lots of writing on the side and producing a very time-intensive vlog might prove to be too much for me. And if we do end up buying a place soon, we may be completely overwhelmed with moving chores for weeks right in the middle of the season. So I hope that everyone will understand if we miss a week here or there or simply drop dead in the middle of an episode, our souls spent and our cats instantly orphaned. I just hope the tape runs out before they eat our faces. (Sorry, that’s two face-eating jokes in one post … too soon?)
In the meantime – prepare thyselves, bitches. ‘Cause it’s time to get back to Work.
(To catch up on our Blood Work! vlogs, head on ovah heah.)
