A Return To Bon Temps...Is It My Blue Mood Elixir?
I am overly tired, thanks to a horrible night's sleep, and overly stressed, thanks to life. I am on my own most of the weekend so I guess I am feeling a little blue today. I would not say I am quite depressed, but definitely in a funk. But if I am nothing else, I am a fixer.
It is recommended to keep yourself busy when you are feeling down or stressed out. Staying busy and active is a great distraction. I have worked out twice today, and I know my body will make me regret it tomorrow after the punishment I gave it today. My mood has improved somewhat, but I still need a distraction. Writing is always a distraction, but it also requires thinking. I so do not want to think right now. Reading is out of the question because my eyes feel too tired. So binge watching tv is on the menu today. I just needed to decide what to watch.
I think I found my answer on Amazon Video. All seven seasons of True Blood are on Amazon Video, the first six are free for Prime members. I read all of the books and watched the series on HBO with dedication. Based on the popular book series by Charlaine Harris, a return to Sookie Stackhouse and Bon Temps may be just what I need. Lots of sex, violence, some laughs (courtesy Lafayette), and absolute craziness sums up True Blood.
After watching the first few episodes I remembered why I loved this show so much. I also remembered how much sex there was too. Holy crap! I guess it's not called "good times'' for nothing. I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with the vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, and even fairies. May be silly to some, but a nice escape when reality bites.
