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 🙂

I’m so behind on True Blood but I appreciated the season premiere featuring lotsa nearly naked Jason Stackhouse.

Thanks to my English girl Lisa who sported me these pics of sexy, shiny Italian hotties!

Isn’t objectifying men with the female gaze fun?!

“Battleship”: A Girl’s Review

Not enough Shirtless Kitsch. Shirtless Skarsgard has his torso blocked for most of the scene. Landry is awesome. Rhianna sucks.

Once again movie people – don’t you want to make money off of straight women with eyes, libidos and disposable income??? Then LOSE THE DAMN SHIRTS! God, this isn’t rocket science you know!!

(honestly, the movie isn’t that bad in fact it was better than I expected for that type of summer-testerone-let’s-blow-shit-up type of Boy Flick. But I bet it would be making a lot more money off of women who want to see shirtless Tim Riggins. GIVE THE LADIES WHAT THEY WANT!!)

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!

Get Your Riggins-on-a-thon!!

A few months ago I “met” Cherie – a lovely lass from Australia who was following my and Blogging Pal Julie’s blogs. She seemed to like all the same things we did (sexy vampires, shirtless men) and was incredibly funny and snarky and fit right in with our obsessive fangirl posse.

I was commenting on a post of Julie’s about Damon Salvatore being all broody and brokenhearted and compared him to a “Vampire Tim Riggins” which got Cherie’s attention. I directed her here to my Friday Night Lights Lovefests and she was immediately captivated by the Trademark Riggins “Brood and Smolder.”

Not a week later she had bought the first three seasons of FNL that are available in Australia and spent a long weekend with girlfriends which she named the Get Your Riggins-On-a-Thon! And they didn’t just watch the whole thing – oh – no. These girls made pom poms and wore their own team shirts and then went out during some Oz football finals in the streets with their faces painted the Dillon Panthers COLORS!!

Cherie's actual jersey worn in observance of Get-Your-Riggins-on-a-thon weekend!

I could not have been more proud 🙂

She kept my mom and I updated the entire weekend with their antics and we were rolling on the floor. We just sit and watch FNL and cry and wish it was a real place we could go to. These girls made it an event!! (I highly recommend checking out her hilarious updates in the comments section of this post.)

So as if THAT didn’t all make Cherie cool enough – she’s started a fantastic blog called My Spidey Sense is Tingling where she covers all sorts of exciting topics (sexy vampires, shirtless men) and this week made me adore her further by proclaiming that because of me she now loves The Killers (in a Damon-centric post no less!) Hey I don’t make money on this blog – but you know what I do get? People like Cherie listening to my crazy ravings about boys I love in TV and music and going out to see/hear for themselves what the hell I’m on about.

I mean, I have international influence dammit! So go support Cherie and her blog so she can write something that will make someone go “I gotta go check that out!” and fall in love with a fantastic show or a great band or a cute boy.

The Man, the Myth, the Riggins Brood and Smolder

Where are my Birthday Boys?!?

I’m hoping these guys are on a little road trip to come wish me a Happy Birthday:

Acceptable birthday gifts would include: either of them shirtless OR in a tank top. This guy. This guy. Or really, if we’re talking the Best Birthday Ever – This Guy:

Look! He's waiting for you guys to call and get him for me!

Door’s always open Salvatores!! I’m the one in the Birthday Girl tiara 😉
