1. Opinion-Vampires are the new wizards. I don’t know if it’s due to the popularity of the twilight series or if the twilight series’ popularity is a result of the popularity of vampires. HBO has a new show by the creators of 6 feet Under called True Blood.
About the show
Thanks to a Japanese scientist’s invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures “coming out of the coffin.” Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the jury is still out.
Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), however, knows how it feels to be an outcast. “Cursed” with the ability to listen in on people’s thoughts, she’s also open-minded about the integration of vampires — particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year-old living up the road. But as Sookie is drawn into a series of mysteries surrounding Bill’s arrival in Bon Temps, that tolerance will be put to the test.
A sexy, scary new drama from ‘Six Feet Under’ creator Alan Ball, ‘True Blood’ delves into the meticulously-crafted world of novelist Charlaine Harris. Described by the Emmy®-winning Ball as “popcorn for smart people” and featuring a colorful cast of local misfits, ‘True Blood’ promises an intense ride.
. I’m embarrassed to admit it but I am all over it. I love how the new vampires aren’t necessarily blood sucking leeches. Instead of being horror stories the new vampire stories are based on the outsider paradigm. They are the different kids trying to fit in. they have all the sexiness of Dracula but you don’t have to hate them anymore. “It’s fun, it’s sexy, it’s dangerous”(direct quote from the creator. Move over Harry Potter.
2. Layouts- I love using the We R Memory keepers divided page. For this one I was just going to decorate the front and leave the back fairly plain. Now when have you known me to be able to leave anything plain?
For the back I pretty much needed a place to stick leftover pics. Unfortunately, I could really crop the 5 X7 small enough to fit in the pockets. I ended up just sticking it on top and adding a few Autumn Leaves rubons.
3. Weather- What can I say? It’s still raining and school is now canceled for tomorrow. Well, I’ll be damned if I was going to let this ridiculous excuse for a storm keep us in any longer. The kids donned bathing suits and raincoats and went outside to thumb their noses at Fay.
