Wednesday is True Blood night! Yay! (No, I don't have Sky or cable. Yes, I am the last person in the world to see this show: currently on Series 1, Episode 4.)
I have confessed already that I got hooked on this show against my expectations. It really is enormously entertaining: sexy, witty and bloody. But the credits - Oh, I think the credits are inspired. The Deep South is envisioned as a landscape on a mythic level, to the perfect soundtrack. I don't remember being this horrified and excited by that part of the world since I first read Swamp Thing twenty + years ago.
Mr Ashbless, btw, has been in America for nearly three weeks now training for his new job. So far he has avoided getting shot, arrested for jaywalking, bitten by a vampire or any of that foreign stuff that goes on Over There. Today my parents are arriving to Keep Me Company instead. Oh ... joy.
No work will be done. But I will cling to my blog.
