all things evil...

1. Sonic (and Cablevision for running their ads):
Seriously, why must I be taunted and tempted with images of things that are nowhere within my reach? A Sonic commercial plays on our television at least once an hour yet, the closest to our home is about 2 hours away or over state lines. Don't these people know it's unfair to play on the cravings of a pregnant woman? But, HA! I have found a way around their trickery. It happens that a Sonic opened not far off the path to our mini-vacation this weekend...score! Cherry Limeade Chiller, you will soon be mine, all mine!!! Bwahahahaha ;-)Bonus! I went online in search of a coupon (hey, if I'm required to drive two hours for it, I should at least get a deal, right?) and found this one for a 99 cent regular Chiller. Click and enter your e-mail address to get yours and join in my sweet revenge!

2. Vampires: I can't help it. Ever since reading my way through the Twilight series, I've been wanting more blood-sucking action. It's bad, I know. Add to that, the torture of hearing all of the rave reviews of the show True Blood and little ol' me without access to HBO. So, what's a girl to do? Read, of course! I found the Sookie Stackhouse books online for 40% off retail but, didn't really want to wait the 10 business days for delivery. Google being my friend today, I found a coupon for 40% off any book at Borders, called to have them set aside the box set of books 1-7 and made them mine at lunchtime. Gotta love vamps for a steal! I plan to make my acquaintance with Ms. Stackhouse tonight...

Have you read these? Any thoughts or reviews you'd like to share (without spoilers, of course!)?

Ah yes, for the love of all things vampire ;) I am right there with you! I just finished up book 2 of this series last night and it is SOOOO good! Have yet to see the tv series, but the books are wonderful :) Enjoy!!

Right? What is our obsession with vampires right now? You can get season 1 of true blood through netflix- totally worth it. Beware of too much vampire-ness- the similarities between vampires and nursing babies are eerie. Up all night, sleeping all day, using your body to feed... It strikes me in the middle of the night, when we are already sleep deprived...
:)enjoy!

I'm on book 3 and am loooving them. Way more than Twilight too. I just bought TrueBlood season 1 because I've heard so many raves.

Jen, I'm totally about to start the True Blood book series too!! Going to get them today!! The show on HBO is verry good! I'm hooked and thank GOD for On Demand cause I was able to watch all of them recently to get up to date (it just recently became a fascination). This comes in second to Twilight because I just LOVVVVVVED Twilight.
