My new vampire fix...
I don't have HBO but I have 3, count them-3 people who are willing to record it for me. It's nice to have friends!!!
The new HBO series is based on the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, one of my favorite writers. I've been waiting for the series to come out for 3 years, and so far, I haven't been disappointed.
Anna Paquin is great as Sookie, and I loved the scene where Sookie's grandmother was reading one of Charlaine's books!
Jason is hilariously dimwitted, Tara reminds me of my sister(I can't get enough of her),and Lafayette cracks me up!
I even like the guy the picked to play Bill: even though he isn't my favorite character by a long shot.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Sam. I don't know who that guy is but I want more of him!
The only disappointment for me, so far has been Eric. But to be fair I've only seen him and haven't seen acting yet, so maybe he'll change my mind. I'll reserve judgment on that later. (My pharamacist, who I got hooked on the books, says Eric is supposed to be the finest hunk of man meat alive-or dead!ha-but from what I've seen-not so much...)
So all in all, I can stop re-watching old episodes of Buffy the vampire slayer-at least for the next few months. And as Buffy would say: Wish me monsters!

I first caught Gina "Conviction" Carano on the reality show "Fight girls." She is known for her stand up skills, using knees and elbows to completely annihilate her opponents (not to mention that her beauty has earned her the title of the face of womens MMA.) Since making her debut in Mixed Martial Arts she is undfeated with a 6-0 record and is currently working on her ground game and submission skills. Check her out Sat. Oct 4th on CBS at 8:00 central time. Here's a highlight of what you have to look forward to:
