Quopic of the Day – May 18th (via @EricSookieLover)

I’m cutting it close in today’s tonight’s fangalicious Fang-A-Thon 2012post! We’ll make this short and sweet!

This is going to be a Quopic of the Day based on True Blood! Now, I know a lot of you are down on the show right now…and I don’t blame you, but I would like to remember some of the great times we had! Let’s focus on the positive, okay?

I chose this scene, because it really was quite humorous. It was inspired by the Favorite Blood Moments poll on Facebook. So, let’s think back and remember how Eric tricked Sookie into drinking his blood when she sucked out the bullets. By the way, I think the poll is now closed. Hopefully Russell’s ripping the spine out of the newscaster won.

Check it out below!

You may remember in season 2, Eric “tricked” Sookie into sucking two bullets out of his chest, after he had saved her life in the house bomb blast, while Bill was out with Lorena.

Sookie: I sucked the silver out of Eric’s chest to save his life, even though I REALLY didn’t want to.

Eric: She was superb.

Bill: Eric was in no danger.

Sookie: He…what?

Eric: I tiny falsehood.

Bill: He was already healing. The bullets would’ve pushed themselves out. This way he’s forced you to drink his blood.

Sookie: No…no…NO!

Bill: He will be able to sense your emotions.

Sookie: You big lying a-hole!

Eric: Bill, I believe you’re right. I believe I can sense her emotions.

~True Blood: Season 2, Episode 9

LMAO! Even though Bill was in this scene…it was all about Eric and Sookie. Sookie, angered by how Eric had tricked her into sucking out the bullets, and drinking his blood. Eric was laying there, enjoying the show. I still enjoy this scene, just because of how Eric behaved. He was naughty and cocky. He was manipulative and used Sookie’s ignorance against her. Since this was one of our favorite book scenes, it was interesting to see Alan Ball’s take. Unfortunately for us, it didn’t end with a kiss like it does in the books. Oh well…it was still a great scene, IMO.

My Prized True Blood Possesion ~ Re: @VampKingBill (via @CindyLouLouBear)

Here’s My Autographed Picture of Joe Manganiello that My best friend @Riah_Lynn got for me. I simply cherish it. @newrose

Well, Mine isn’t as impressive as having all of the cast~ LUCKY! 😉 But It does involve an autograph.
My Best friend Jessi was at Dragon Con last year. She knows I just do back flips at the mere mention of Joe Manganiello’s name. I had had a tough year with family troubles; and she said she would try to get as close to Joe for me as she could. I honestly just expected some pictures of him signing autographs or maybe waving from like 20 feet away.
That’s not what I got. This is where I love my bestie SO much. She totally didn’t have to do this for me, but she mangaged to get in Joe’s line for autographs. She got one for herself, but she got one for me, too! She took a picture of it & emailed it to me. It remains on my phone & I look at it when I’m at my numerous Dr. Visits to make me smile. I got it a few days before I had surgery. It was one of the best presents I’ve EVER gotten & I can’t thank her enough for it.
I know this is fan girl of me, but when I’m feeling not so good ( I have health problems) I look up at My Picture of Joe, autographed to me. I still squee & grin like a little kid every time I look at it. Because I not only see a Sweet Thing that Joe did, I see the sweetest thing that Jessi did. I love you Jessi! And Thanks Joe!
(I have some more collectibles that I’ll share in future posts, too that are pretty freaking sweet!)

Day 8: Deadlocked by Charlaine Harris (via @Eric_NorthmanTB)

I finally finished “Deadlocked” by Charlaine Harris. It took me a while to get through it. I found the majority of the book to be  drawn out and dry. About 90% of the book was a play-by-play of Sookie’s life, i.e. “I went to pick up the mail. I went inside and put my mail on the table where I opened my electricity bill. Then I went upstairs and took a nap before getting up and putting on some make up so I could go out……etc.”

Sookie is still questioning her love for Eric and flipping between men again. Eric, Bill, Quinn and Alcide all made an appearance in this book.

The plot seemed to drag out for me. It seemed like very little was accomplished in this book, other than giving readers the low down on Sookie’s everyday life. That being said though, I still enjoyed the book, although not as much as I enjoyed the earlier books in the series. It’s obvious to me that Harris has run out of things to do with the series. To me, this book felt to me like Harris knows she’s under contract to write two more books and this book was just full of filler material. I worry that is what the last book is going to be like too.

While I have mixed reviews of this book, I’m always happy to return back to Sookie’s world. “Deadlocked” gets 3.5 stars out of 5 from me.

It’s Alex Day! Battleship is out! (via @LuvBONESnTBlood)

I have read some seriously BAD reviews for the movie Battleship, but I don’t care. As I stated in a review on Flixster!  I am only going for Alex so whether or not it has a plot, is dumb, boring, etc…It will only be me looking and watching his performance all the rest so be it! I’ve put a little gallery together of shots of Alex as Stone Hopper in Battleship and some promo shots of Alex…I know I can safely say that I will definitely ENJOY this movie…it also helps I’m a Liam Neeson fan so it’s good anyway!

The Grand Dames of True Blood? (via @TB_PamR)

True Blood 30-Night Fangathon: Night 8 #2012Fangathon</p><p>The Grand Dames of True Blood?</p><p>Oh how the mighty have fallen! There was a time, believe it or not, when being a grand dame meant something. Not every woman, or even every matriarch, achieved grand dame status. Those who did wielded considerable influence and power in the world. The ladies who lunched were the keepers of tradition, arbiters of taste, dictators of polite society, patrons of the arts and rulers of their house. It’s a far cry from Rosalyn Harris and Caroline Bellefleur, though arguably that is the role intended for both.</p><p>We don’t know much about Rosalyn, she’s a season 5 arrival to Area 5. Reportedly she is a member of the Authority Council, with a fondness for big hair and pearls. None of which makes a grand dame, though the pearls help. Those elegant ladies would never have held a job, not even political office. Work was something men did. Looking at Rosalyn, I can’t help thinking of Betty Jo Pickard, that vampire with the fondness for Mamie Eisenhower that worked for Russell in the books. Except Rosalyn is much more Barbara Bush or even Maggie Thatcher than Mamie. You can bet she rules with an iron fist only occasionally concealed in a velvet evening glove. Then again, she is a vampire. Just not a grand dame.</p><p>Caroline should, by all rights, have been a grand dame. She certainly was in the books. Yet somehow Season 4 missed that mark. Maybe it was putting her in slacks. A lady of that age, grand dame or no, would never wear pants to dinner. A dinner party, even a small one with only a vampire as guest, definitely calls for a dress. She also seemed to lack authority, despite her best efforts, within her own home. Of course, one could attribute that to having one’s ancestor turn up a century or so after his human demise. That’s got to be a social challenge. Unfortunately, her lack of elegance and authority eliminate Caroline from the grand dame category, too. </p><p>It’s sad really. Grand dames are amazing creatures. They are also, obviously, rare and almost extinct. Which leaves me to wonder whether this is just a sign of the times or another, albeit subtle, example of Alan Ball’s misogyny?

Elixir – Eric’s blood

“I gave you a very generous gift. The gift of not killing you. And I’m here to give you something else. The healing elixir that is my 1000-year-old blood.”

“That’s enough. Don’t get greedy.”

“I thought you wanted to be a vampire. You know how you feel with my blood inside you? Well, being a vampire is like that… times a million. Goodbye, sweetheart.”
