TGIF everyone! July is almost over and I’m not going to lie, I’m ready to move on. It’s been a heck of a month and I’m ready to get back on track. So in the interest of normalcy I thought I’d do a random Friday post because you know, random is my normal state of mind and all.
Big news, the Kindle 3 is now available for pre-order. I wasn’t so sure I’d be interested but now I’m not so sure. Look at her. Look at her features. I kind of feel like she wants to come live with me. Are you getting that vibe too? Lucky FVBR reviewer Amy, already has hers pre-ordered and I’m excited for her since this will be her first ever e-reader.

If you’re on the fence on graphite or white Kindle Review has some thoughts on the matter.
Yes, I think I need one. *grin* Since I don’t have anyone telling me no, it’s hard to resist.
So in other Random Friday news, I’m finally reading City Of Ghosts. I know, I know, everyone has already read it. I’m telling you, it’s been a heck of a month, I’m behind, don’t judge me. It’s a damn good book and since I’m already running behind I’m kind of taking it slow. Who knows when we’ll get another Downside book. I’m savoring this one.
True Blood. I’ve been behind on True Blood too but now I’m all caught up. I watched last Sunday’s episode last night. I needed a shower to wash away the blood after that episode. WTF is up with that? Geez this series is getting gory!
True Blood thoughts in general:
- For all the great gory effects, those fangs suck ass
- The Eric flashbacks creep me out. Eric of the old days = goofy and not sexy.
- Franklin = *love* Yes, he’s beyond creepy, but I loves him. (let’s hope he gets past this latest little setback)
- I can’t help saying, “Hey, that’s not how it was in the books” every time I watch an episode.
- Jesus is cute and I want him and LaFayette to get down.
- Just when I can’t stand Tara anymore, she changes my mind.
- Sookie annoys.
- Is Eric really that tall or do they put the man on stilts? I want to climb him.
- I heart Jessica. And Jason. And LaFayette.
Tweeter you need to follow if you aren’t already:
Author Dakota Cassidy. She is a damned entertaining tweet. Plus, I can’t look at that avi without laughing. I love it!
I’ll tell you a secret. I love her avi but I’m just the tiniest bit disturbed by it. Here’s why:
My five year old just needs a ciggy in her mouth and they could be twins! (Just ignore the funny little 3 year old on the left of the Dakota look-a-like)
So that’s Random Friday for this week. Have a wonderful weekend, enjoy, come back next week refreshed. –FV
