I thought this season of Dexter was weak, especially compared to the first two, but I still enjoyed it by the time it was over. I think it got better a couple episodes further in, but I might just be romanticizing it in hindsight. Hopefully since they have been picked up 2 more season, they'll do some more inventive, longer, storylines. But they might just continue to water it down too.

Actually it was Han who killed the tauntaun. Loser.

Knock that What Not to Wear queue in half:
-- Subject is a Ph.D. student with long 70's polyester skirts and comfortable ugly shoes.
-- One second flash of Stacy truly wanting to cut a bitch.
-- Clinton says something about boobs that just seems...off.
-- Nick cuts some variation on a shag, gets his hug.
-- Carmindy has Joan-Collins-on-Dynasty camera filter for gloss application sequence.
-- Goateed boyfriend wipes away tears at hometown party, awkward swan twirls behind credits.

I read your top 5 on HBC, and as another one of the swarm who knows the name of every employee at the local Starbucks, I offer my sympathies that your wife cut you off. There is always cash, secreted away. And, knowing that, I highly suggest you try their new sweet bread. Yum.

I too lament the loss of animal lard in baked goods, Tod (in spite of the fact that I'm a pescetarian, yes). Indeed things haven't been the same since the arrival of the anti-trans fat enforcement crowd. [plaintive sigh] On the other hand, I look forward to the return of the "Parade" of fucktardery and laud the arrival of Two Letters. (where else can you find great writers sandwiched in between lovely artwork, I ask?)

I shared the Deanna Cameron interview with the BN community, I hope that's okay, Tod. It was too delightful and I couldn't help but share it with others. Stay bundled up and warm on your trek through the arctic tundra of Vermont, okay?

Oooookay, color me fucktard, I suppose - I thought I commented on this but alas, apparently not? Hmmm. Well, as I was saying, I too lament the loss of animal lard in baked goods, Tod (in spite of the fact that I'm a pescetarian, yes).

And see? There indeed is my comment twice, in all its fucktardery glory. [laughs] There you have it. Oh, Tod - I'd wanted to ask you if you had any thoughts about the holocaust hoax memoir? Like the inane/insane James Frey "I read War and Peace to an illiterate guy nicknamed Porterhouse" story, I thought to myself, how is it that this story (of the little boy in the concentration camp receiving apples and bread thrown over the fence by the little Polish girl, then meeting her in 1957 on a blind date in Coney Island) seems viable to people (Oprah specifically)? I don't get it. When has the holocaust ever been known for producing "heart-rending stories"?! [baffled look]

DeAnna

I don't regret it all, Tod. I love the comedy relief. My favorite, though, is still you explaining (and acting out) the difference between writing your literary novel and writing the Burn Notice novel at the OCC/RWA meeting a few months back. I tried to repeat your performance for my husband (a huge Burn Notice fan) and for some reason it just wasn't as funny... :-)

Philippa Connors

I meant heart *warming*, not heart-rending (which is of course what ALL holocaust memoirs are). I just don't get it, because this guy had quite a remarkable story without needing to fabricate anything. It's baffling to me.

Anyway, I just had to correct myself from earlier...hope you're staying bundled up in Vermont tonight!

Maybe I'm the odd man out but I really enjoyed this season of Dexter.

I realize it continues the thread of dangerous characters without a code (evil brother in season 1, batshit crazy stalker lady with non-sexy british accent in season 2), but it was also the arc that was most open to unpredictability.

You knew Dex wasn't going to run off and play serial killer with his brother in season 1 and you knew he wasn't going to get arrested in season 2. This time, starting with the end of episode 2, you didn't really know what the fuck was going to happen.

Jimmy Smits gets better.

Oh, shit. Spoiler warning.
