My Postmortem: TB Ep. 6 Season 3

So Truebies...

The season is already halfway over?!

I have to be honest with y'all...

I wasn't really into the episode last night until the last half.

Tara = Fierce. That's all I have to say.

Get it, Tara Mae!

Anyway, the end was when it all really came together for me.

The Bill/Lorena relationship makes me want to sock someone in the mouth.
But they did have a nice couple of scenes last night.

And again, Alexander Skarsgard in that sweater. Mmmmmm.

But even more so than the episode from last night, let's talk about the previews for next week.


It sounds like they may be taking the route of the books that I was worried they'd take with Bill and Sookie's relationship. But maybe not. I'm still crossing my fingers that they don't. It would somewhat spoil the series for me.

Eric is going to tear sh*t down though. (Excuse my French) But it'll be epic. And I'm so excited for it.

Trade you the red one for the blonde one?


On one hand, it's Sookie. But Jessica didn't ask to be a vampire, and didn't do anything wrong to be involved in anything.

It will be intense and I can't can't can't can't can't wait for Sunday.
I have a feeling it'll be the best episode of the season.

True Blood was even a trending topic last night with folks saying it was the best episode of the season.

I think that title will go to next week.

However, I'll continue watching the previous two just for that sweater.

My Postmortems: TB Episodes 4 & 5 Season 3

So I'm WAYYYYY behind with my Postmortems. Sorry Trubie blog babies. It was my birthday last week and my roommate came in from Texas. So it was literally chaos.

But here we are, with the Postmortems of Episode 4 and 5.

Episode 4:

First of all: Sam's family. WTF?! His father makes me angrier and angrier every time he comes on the screen. And his mother is up to something... I don't know why I'm convinced of that... but I'm convinced.

Sookie's little makeover. Ooh la la. And the Vamp King distributing blood? I told you previously that there would be a war, and this is making it even more evident that there will. The Queen and King doing virtually the same thing? It's going to bring everyone into question. And things will get naaaasty.

Don't even get me started on Lorena. I know she's just a character and all, but I hate her.

And what's next for Pam? Poor Pam. She's hot though. She'll find her way out of this :)

Episode 5:

As Snoop said, Ohhh Sookie! What do y'all think she is? Well, maybe Alan Ball is going the route of the books on this one. We'll see. I'm excited. At least Bill did the right thing... kind of. I, personally really want them to stay together. But you all know that.

The real show stealer last night was Lafayette. Get ittttttttttt! Damn. But it's True Blood, pretty much everyone has an ulterior motive. But I'm liking where this is going.

And Arlene needs to calm down. I get that she's pregnant and all, but seriously? Calm down.

All I have to say is, Alexander Skarsgard in that blue sweater. Thank you.

1,051,200 Minutes

"Every man dies. Not every man really lives." - William Wallace

There are only 1,051,200 minutes in two years.

One million, fifty one thousand and two hundred minutes

It feels like it's been decades since my Grandmother passed away.

At 5:30 AM, for whatever reason, my brother, mother, and I all woke up that muggy July 2nd morning in 2008. All on different floors of the house. All having gone to sleep at different times the night before. We all woke up at 5:30. And within seconds my mother received a phone call saying that her mother, Frances Ann Pugliese had passed away that morning.

Nothing had ever been so surreal.
She was not the first person I knew to die, nor the first person in my immediate family to do so.
But she was the first person I knew well in my immediate family to die.

I can't even tell you how many things I wished I did with her.
I called her every couple of weeks to see how she was doing.
I flew back east every chance I could to see her.
I sent her cards and flowers on any and every occasion.
And I still wish it was more.

We were never particularly close, but we did have a healthy relationship and I did really love her. She was a peculiar creature with a lot of habits both good and bad. But at 78, she had lived a life that was full and rich with two daughters, a husband, a talent for art and cooking, and many many more things.

But she had so much more to live for.
And in all honesty, she could have lived much longer than she did.

Despite having so many things, she was very lonely.
She was warm and giving, but she was also selfish and every other word out of her mouth was a complaint. Every word that was not a complaint was an order.

She, unfortunately, fell into the category that I'm sure some of you readers know all too well. People who don't understand how to love and love correctly. In a way that is positive and clean as opposed to one that is dirty and self oriented. She was one of those people that believed any attention was good attention, and if you know someone well enough, it is easy to make them upset. People wouldn't get so upset if they didn't care for you right? And it's easier to see you're loved that way than actually going out and doing a nice deed for that person, right?


There's more to it than that, Mom Mom.

But that's another story for another time. And actually something that can't be told in words, but in lessons. In hearts. In ways that you need to see for yourself how you're loved and how you loved.

You'll know if you were right in the end when people are by your side or not.

I want everyone out there to take the time to love today. Anyone. Someone you haven't loved on in a while. It will make a world of difference. An absolute world.

If what you give is what you get, start giving y'all! Don't let anymore minutes go by. 525,600... 1,051,200... 1, 2, 3. GO!
