I LOVE Dexter! And I'm a new convert. I only just watched seasons 1 and 2 about 3 weeks ago and I ordered Showtime just so I could see season 3. I've never read the books, though. Are they worth reading?? I just LOVE the characters in the show, especially Dexter and Deb, they are so real to me.
Hey I can't wait to hear more details on the Disney thing!!
(And I'm so glad you turned your comments back on!)
Hehe, did you know that Dexter & Deb (the actors I mean - Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter) are dating in real life? That always makes me giggle, since they're brother & sister in the show.
I like the books - they're good Dexter "fixes" in between seasons, hehe. They're worth reading, but the characters don't seem as real to me as the TV ones. After the first book two, things are SO different it's almost like a completely different thing altogether.
More Disney stuff (and some other Big News unrelated too!) should be divulged soon, hehe.
Ah yes, now that I'm pretty much "caught up" with a lot of emails & other online stuff, with the stress of convention/show season over, I can finally get my internet socializing back in order, hehe. I've been so neglectful!
Ha, I was right about Dex and Deb dating! I told my sis and she was like "No way!", she thought I misheard it somewhere, but I knew it!! That's so funny, and weird at the same time...lol.
The same thing happened to me with the fridge. Mine was from Sears so I called Sears to come fix it. It was a dead mouse that got caught in the fan, I was charged 50.00 too.
I hope the cleaning helped. We were told to clean it atleast once a month.
Ewwww! Lol, I'm betting it's definitely the cat fur then, there literally was almost a grocery bag full. I don't know how one cat makes so much fur! (of course, I think some of it was Azrael fur and Jasmine Hair too....).
I know it would be awful to lose so much food.
This was tip I was told, I forgot to tell you. When you touch the side of the fridge does it feel hot. If so the fans not turning. Ours was really hot to the touch before the mouse was found.
I don't know if your fridge collects water on the bottom. We were told to drain it cause animals are drawn to it.
Good thing we have another fridge, a smaller one, but atleast having back up is a good thing.
I really hope your fridege doesn't break, cause I think it's cheaper to buy a new one then get fixed sometimes. If it's under warranty then don't worry about it.
Good luck with that. Let us pray to fridge gods that it keeps working.
Wow, good luck with the fridge!! If it messes up again and you do have to get a new one, you might try Sears 'scratch & dent' section - a lot have dings on a side or something where you won't even notice it. :-)
Love the rat drawing!! :-) I also like ferrets ;-P *hint to do more...* ;-)
Thanks for sharing with us!
Definitely - I wouldn't ever care about the sides of the fridge, it goes back in a little cabinet cubby-hole anyways. This was actually the first time I ever saw the side/back of my fridge!
Oh definitely, more ferrets to come. I'm planning on one that features a bunch of different kinds of ferrets (sables, albino, chocolate, cinnamon, etc.) all together in one painting! Kind of like how I did with cats in my It's All About the Cats
painting, but with ferrets.
Oohhh, that would be awesome!! I've got all of your ferret prints except the one that I believe is titled 'Winged Ferret' - the Fairy with the big champagne guy. And I won them in raffles! But if you did something with ferrets like that cat one, I think I'd just have to outright buy it - no taking chances with a raffle!! :-O
If you ever need reference pics, feel free to check out my albums: kesrael.shutterfly.com and Photobucket
. I've got an assortment of ferrets/colors! :-D
Thank you so much! I'm going to check it out now!
ewww, I wonder if my fridge is full of beau jo hair... he sheds twice as much as he should.
You could always make yarn :D
it would make a rather itchy blanket though..heheh
gah! Looks accusingly at my Pomeranian
I love that you will have a studio at both homes, perfect!
AW!! MAMA WOLF!!! Hee hee!! Trouble maker!
I haven't watched Dexter yet---I definitely want to rent it to watch!
Thank goodness the food didn't spoil, that would have been a real shame. I hope that it works better now that its better ventilated at the bottom, hahaha naughty kitty cat!!
HAve fun with the new house, and yes do post pics of that too when you can.
I am so happy because yesterday I bought one of your little fairy statue's at a fair here in Holland. It's the pirate fairy with the jolly roger shirt. They are adorable.
Awww! Mama Wolf is so sweet! We had a Maine Coon when I was growing up and he was the plumpest, softest, and most affectionate kitty ever. *^___^*
Our Sub Zero went out. Bought a new one. This time with the warranty. Our last one was only little more than 2 years old.
Are you ever going to get your web cam working again. It was the best!!!
Just curious! But lots of others are too!
They recommend you vacuum it out every month (like anyone does that) heheheh
I have to clean my OWN hair out from underneath it as I dont have any fur babies and I apparently shed like a cat!
One time I found a dehydrated gecko under there!!! I guess he got in the house and hid because it was warm there..he was in perfect condition..it was bizarre (and a little sad :()
I don't know if I'd say better on Dexter. Yes, they do completely diverge, and wah, I miss Rudy. (omg, though, I'm such a Rudy/Dexter shipper -_-)
It's not wrong, although I don't think you were asking that in all seriousness; you may simply appreciate certain aspects of the show that are less pronounced in the movie. Personally, I think there's a much more macabre sense of humor in the books. (Hee - I'll give you the finger? Will never, ever be the same to me.) I like that kind of morbid humor. Not to say the show doesn't have it; I think they tone it down. Not so much the gore or anything, and they certainly do get morbid - but not in quite the same way. The books have always seemed to just have an edge the series doesn't quite get at. (However, Julie Benz is totally eye candy. Yay for Julie! One of the things I like about the show that the books don't have.)
Not to mention, I *love* the books, but the third one went in a direction that I just don't know about. I'm giving him the fourth to woo me back, but it seems less realistic in some ways - more mystical - and I think as far as the Dexter novels go, the sharp realism of it (it IS set in modern day, no magic, or anything; just an incredibly realistic setting) was such a huge draw for me. I do enjoy the fact that the series hasn't gone in that direction yet.
Anyway, I think with the divergence of mediums, some people are going to like the novels better, some the series. I like to think I like them equally, while appreciating their differences and the fact that people will have their own preferences. If we all liked the same thing, what a boring world this would be. I say enjoy what you enjoy, and honestly, who cares if anyone else cares that you like the show or novels better? (Then again, from reading your journal, I get the feeling you probably would laugh it off even if someone did wag their finger at you. It's a pretty ridiculous thing to get uppity about, heh.)
