HBO Update

So with Husband heading out this week, my attention turns to what I can do to bide my time… I ended up watching Season 3 of GIRLS the very next night of that heady weekend and was suitably tired and devastated when it finished. Then I found out that the library had season 4, so, yah! Done and dusted, but now I’m back to devastated since I can’t find season 5 anywhere except on pay per views. And so, this is what I will be contemplating this week, since Canada is apparently not under the same threats as Belgium was when Husband sauntered around that train station hours before those bomber fucks. But the bushfires are a worry, for sure, and I’m wondering if the news outlets will say that aussie fire fighters are heading over there sometime soon. Maybe I will be content to sit around and take snapshots of my news shoes,

and maybe not. I do have the first three seasons of True Blood that I could rewatch, but breathy Bill doesn’t do it for me quite the same as that driving fellow. Does anyone have hbo? I might have a spare bottle of Oregon Pinot to swap for GIRLS season 5. Don’t leave me hanging.

Girls

So, call me crazy or whatevs but I have a sense of adventure and sometimes that means reading all fucking night – as in literally all night – or maybe just til 4am or writing until midnight or binge watching two seasons of GIRLS because they are seriously only 30 minutes each, or thereabouts.
It’s 6am and there is fucking birdsong outside, as though I didn’t just have my heart ripped out of my chest and then put victoriously back by Adam Driver running through the streets without a shirt to the woman he loves because he loves her. And now I can’t watch season 3 consecutively because kids, and all that, and adult themes on the big screen etc. Yeah, that scene on her chest, um, right.
So I have been imagining one of the main characters in the book I’m writing as looking like Adam Driver, so all this bullshit with my friends giving me Kylo Ren/AD gear for my birthday? Hilarious and coincidental, but also inspirational.  And frankly, watching these two seasons – in 9 hours or so – has confirmed in my mind just what the hell is going on with that character because he was elusive until now, which totally threw me because hello? I created you, you fucker, you don’t get to jerk me around etc. And the other guy who I thought was THE guy, might not be the guy, and that kind of breaks my heart as well, but maybe it’s not four days worth of heartbreak over an imaginary character like last time, so I guess that is just as telling.
