this subject of this update has to do with 1) that i finally ate like a million donuts, after virtuously swearing off them for several, err, days, and 2) i wanna go fast! i'm hoping dad lets me drive his car over winter break. i've been downshifting to accelerate my car for the first time in my life these past few months, and speeding up feels awesome! i feel in better control of everything when I shift down to third gear on the interstate. I used to hate that roaring sound it makes.

Problems I have with the show True Blood: Anna Paquin's Louisiana accent. That their fangs are too close to the front--they look like bunnies. Some of the acting. The fact that Sam is so clearly hotter than Bill-the-bunny. But I am enjoying the books.

Music: Enjoying Shearwater more and more. Also finally got the M.I.A. album, and The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir, which I haven't listened to all the way, but which is fantastic at first blush anyway.

Ooh. I gave up on True Blood, at least in part because of the accents. Also because I didn't like the writing. Maybe I will give it a second try when it comes out on dvd.

I wouldn't recommend it so much. I don't think I'm a fan of Alan Ball. But the book so far is pretty fun. Sookie's better in it.
