she liked Imaginary Men best of all

Oh my god I’m back again!

Sooooo – long time, no blog yet apparently people are still coming here to read old posts which is pretty cool considering I haven’t posted anything in almost 15 months!

When I left you I was swooning about The World’s Best Boyfriend who, I’m happy to report is still fulfilling that role. I still love me some Imaginary Men but of course spending time with a Real Guy does take away from my sitting-up-all-night-blogging-time (so does a new wake-up call of 6AM – ACK!)

What else? Oh I just, you know – bought a house. Yes after several years of commitment phobia I went and got a relationship AND a mortgage within a year of each other. You would think I am a GROWN-UP or something!

Don't you love my new house?? (this is not my new house)

Don’t you love my new house?? (this is not my new house)

So plenty of energy that used to be dedicated to fantasizing about Pacey’s Pea Coats or Dreamy Vampire Brothers has been funneled into really sexy thoughts like bathroom remodels, caulking tools and home heating conversions (I know, I know – my life is VERY VERY COOL. Control yourself.)

And I guess some of my interests have changed and my need to write about them obsessively waned. I think that’s normal and I certainly still love a lot of things that are on this site (I’m looking at you Dowager Countess) and have discovered new interests because that’s what life is about – you grow and change and some things make the cut and some don’t.

I do have a confession to make and that is that I may now be less your Fun Sassy Girlfriend and more your Fun Sassy Grandma. The evidence: this winter I read two biographies of Frank Sinatra (speaking of obsessions – HOW could we not see Ronan Farrow is CLEARLY his kid?!) I got hooked on listening to the Cole Porter station on Pandora and when I saw The Fault in our Stars instead of getting all swoony for teen dream boat Augustus I kept thinking, “can we spend more time with Hazel’s parents? Because they seem really fun and awesome.” I’d like to think it was just residual feelings for Sam Trammell now that I’ve missed the last few seasons of True Blood – but I think it’s because I’m Your Grandma and Laura Dern seems really fun to hang out with (even when she’s pretending her daughter is dying of cancer so bravo for that specialized talent!)

But! I quoted the Backstreet Boys up above AND just saw them in concert (and got to keep my  Concert Bitch in check) and because Boy Bands are Never Not Awesome. I have some fun news coming up in the next week so I hope you’ll welcome me back into the big wide blogging world and that I remember how to link shit 🙂

Calling all Fangirls! Think of the possibilities!: An entire Boy Band, Hot Teen Vampires, a Dillon Texas Football team or ten times the Hamm, Gosling and McGregor AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!!! 🙂

Sexy Vamps vs. Sexy Agents

So Entertainment Weekly has 3 covers for the Vampire Diaries this week!

This one:

 

 

Looked awfully familiar to me. Hmmmmm……

 

Source: Andrea of course!

You’ll note on the EW cover there is a story about “shippers” – that would be fans that root for a particular couple on a show. And do you know how that particular term got introduced into the pop culture lexicon? That’s right – by THE X-FILES 😉

Of Hybrid Dicks and Cocky Ripper Douches

Boy those Salvatore Brothers sure know how to whip up a good nickname, don’t they? Last week’s Vampire Diaries flashback-tastic episode “The End of the Affair” featured Stefan calling Klaus a “Hybrid Dick”,

I smell a bromance!

While Damon recalled in the roaring 20’s his brother was quite a “Cocky Ripper Douche”

Sounds like somebody is crabby their brother has found a new drinking buddy!

I love both nicknames, and while I think “Cocky Ripper Douche” has a little more style and sass (Damon always gets the best lines), I gotta go with Team “Hybrid Dick” because, c’mon, it’s Klaus!

How can you argue with CAKE??!!

How excited are we? Well we spent quite a bit of time deconstructing the latest trailer that premiered last week and then we did some guessing/predicting/fantasizing about what we think we may see in the new season. The results of our TVD BrainTrust can be found at Awesome Blogging Pal Julie’s site:

The Vampire Diaries Pre-Season 3 Redux

The Vampire Diaries’ Brothers Salvatore vs. Brothers Originals

Want to hear some good news? Less than TWO WEEKS until The Vampire Diaries S3 premiere!!

Awesome Blogging Pal Julie and I spent the first part of the summer hiatus sobbing into our cocktails about how much we missed the Hot, Often Shirtless, Sometimes Wet Denizens of Mystic Falls:

Source: a Tumblr I forgot to cite bc I was too busy drooling - sorry!

Then True Blood came on with the Hot, Often Shirtless, Sometimes Wet denizens of Bon Temps:

Oh Amnesia Eric I love how you even forgot to wear shirts!

But then we got back to work and did our Fabulous Four Part Ripper Redux Series about Stefan Salvatore’s path from good guy, to bad vampire, to good vampire, to bad vampire, to good vampire, to dot, dot, dot (as Damon would say!)You can read the whole series here.

Now we bring you a look at a topic sure to be a biggie this season – Damon and Stefan Salvatore (Vampire Brothers 2.0) and Klaus and Elijah “Original” (Vampire Brothers 1.0) So stop your reading, start your clicking and go to TV Recappers’ Anonymous for:

The Vampire Diaries’ Klaus/Elijah vs. Damon/Stefan (and it’s all just a little bit of history repeating…)

Team Ripper toast to brotherhood!
