The Vampire Diaries Is Back!

As I settled in to watch the first new epi of The Vampire Diaries' sophomore season I was reminded why this show was one of my favorite, if not my absolute favorite, last season.  Because it's freaking awesome, people! 

I was disappointed that I could not watch this epi last Thursday night at 8 (my family doesn't get the CW on this DirectTV) and had to wait until the CW posted the epi on their website so I could watch it on my computer.  It was worth the wait because the summer hiatus did not slow The Vampire Diaries down.  At all.

All last season we waited for Katherine Pierce's return and she brought it immediately.  Is she ever evil!  A nasty, bitchy, shit stirring vampire simply cannot be beat and Katherine does not disappoint.  From her attempted murder of Uncle John to threatening Bonnie to professing her (literally) undying love to Stefan while telling Damon that she never loved him and never would because it would always be Stefan . . . ouch!  For two brothers who have competed and butted heads for over 145 years, I have a feeling this will send Damon over the edge and he will get even darker (if possible!)  Without giving away a spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen it, we were definitely given a glimpse of the Damon to come last night in a scene involving Elena and Jeremy. 

And the final scene involving Katherine and Caroline?  Game on, indeed. 

If the first epi was any indication, The Vampire Diaries promises to take viewers on a season-long thrill ride.  And I can't wait.

So, viewers . . . does Stefan or Damon do it for you?  I didn't get the Damon fascination for much of last season although I was starting to understand it by the finale but I'm still rooting for Stefan.  And I did love seeing the dark and dangerous Stefan last season, even if briefly. 

Can't wait until the next episode!

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

Bitch, Please: Toddlers & Tiaras

Okay, so I watched Toddlers & Tiaras this week.  Had heard about it, heard in the past that it was a pedophile's dream show, how they exploited kids, blah, blah, blah.  I was channel surfing and there was nothing else on so I stopped.  And watched.  Stunned.

Do parents like these really exist?  WTF is wrong with them?  And how on earth does a 2 month old baby
win a pageant?  The least amount of drool?  Best pacifier?  Carried the best by parent?  I'm confused.  But I digress.

Apparently the format is that each episode follows several kids and their severely in need of therapy parental units as they prepare for and then compete in some type of child's beauty pageant, with the end of the show being the crowning of the winners.

This episode of T&T begins with the unforunately named Brystol of Lexington, South Carolina who is 18 months old and has supposedly won top prize in every pageant she has competed in.  Before you snort and wonder how many pageants she could p…

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe: No Pardons!

August 19, 2011 was a joyous day for many reasons.  It was Friday.  School starts this week.  And Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Miskelley, also known as The West Memphis Three, were at long last released from prison.  After nearly eighteen years. 

We supporters have been saying for years that The Three at the very least didn't get fair trials and at most are flat out innocent of the murders they have been accused of.  Freedom from incarceration has been the main goal for years and I am thrilled that the day finally came last Friday.  It is discouraging, however, that Damien, Jason and Jessie had to take an Alford plea in order to secure their releases.  In other words, they had to admit that the State of Arkansas had enough evidence to convict them in a retrial while still maintaining their innocence.  The State of Arkansas, totally speaking out of their ass, claims that they indeed have enough evidence to re-convict in a retrial but released the men, despite their alle…
