Oh, Alexander Skarsgard, you and I can hang out in the shade whenever you want…
a little rant
So, this is not my typical post, but a happy little rant about a vampire and a girl obsessed with television: Well my friends, True Blood is wrapping up on Sunday. Yes, I agree it is a tragedy. I spent quite a bit of time being self-indulgent, pouting and wailing when this last episode ended. Here is how it went down: the end credits start rolling, they announce that the next episode would be the last of the season, and I drop to the floor groaning “noooo.” This is followed by crying, shaking my fist asking, “why?”, and more yelling of “no”. David observes and says, “Babe, are you being a little dramatic?” “No,” I insist. “In fact, this is not dramatic enough.”
At this point you might be worried about me and my sick attachment to television. I want to tell you not to worry. I do in fact leave the house…but in reality it is a combination of HBO, Bravo and HGTV that have gotten me through this HOT summer, with David away and most of my friends busy. Well OK, let’s not forget about Mad Men on Netflix as well…
one fine swede
Let’s get back to Alexander Skarsgard. It doesn’t matter if you love Bill (which I do) or if you root for Eric (which I also do) there is no denying Alexander’s looks and cool sense of style. And when I say cool sense of style, I mean on and off the show. There is nobody, and I mean nobody, who can pull of a deep v-neck skin-tight t-shirt like Eric. In his recent In Style interview, Alexander said, “I’m interested in fashion … I do most of my shopping in Sweden. You can find more stuff there.” This, I love.
He also talks about his party style, saying “There are a lot of Swedes in Los Angeles, and I have a yearly party where I make my own glogg, which is a Swedish recipe for hot, mulled wine. People get pretty intoxicated because glogg is stronger than they think it is — so it’s usually a pretty damn good party.” I am picturing him making glogg and am finding it adorable. Most importantly, this Swedish hunk talks sunscreen. Apparently he uses Epicuren. I guess mixing a tan with vampire makeup makes you look greyish in complexion. I’m just happy he is preserving those good looks.
