As a way to countdown to my upcoming birthday (August 18!), I thought I would share with you some of my absolute favorite items in the world. All are items I personally love and recommend, so whether you’re looking for a gift for yourself, or someone else, or just need some inspiration, consider this my personal Birthday Favorites Gift Guide.
So without further ado…
Birthday Favorite #1:
But in terms of addictive TV, True Blood, like many HBO shows, cannot be beat. I watched it last season on a whim and then I couldn’t stop. 6 episodes were available OnDemand at that time and I kid you not, I watched them all in one day. And then I counted down the days until Season 2 began (just a few weeks ago).
True Blood is based off of the Sookie Stackhouse book series by Charlaine Harris. Both the books and the TV show follow the life of Sookie Stackhouse, a lady that can read minds in Louisiana. Her life changes when Bill, a vampire, enters the bar where she works.
The show is fast-paced and enthralling. I cannot recommend it highly enough. (But again, I warn you – if you don’t like graphic TV, this show is NOT for you.)
The cheapest I could find a NEW copy of True Blood: The Complete First Season was at Amazon, where it is currently selling for $35.99.
