My major distraction...

Okay, so for a while now I haven't really been spending too much time focused on writing my book. Or doing homework. Or anything else productive, really. But how could I when I have such a major distraction in the form of a little show called "Revenge"? Seriously, have you seen this show? It's soooo addicting. Season one is up on Netflix, and I've spent the past week or so watching it instead of doing more important things.
"Revenge" is a show about a girl named Amanda Clarke who comes live in the Hamptons under the fake name Emily Thorne. When she was younger, her father was convicted of aiding terrorists and died while in jail. After she turned eighteen, Emily found out that he'd been a mere scapegoat and had  been betrayed by all those he'd trusted, so she has returned to avenge him. How does she do this? By methodically screwing with each and every one of their wealthy lives until they are completely ruined. Emily is like a female Dexter, except, you know, she doesn't kill anyone. Intentionally. She's the bad guy on the show, but her adversaries are way more loathsome than her, so you kind of have to root for Emily. Throw in a snarky sidekick (LOVE Nolan, by the way), a fake love interest, and a real one she can never truly be with, and you have an amazing television show.
Thankfully, I've already finished season one and I'm all caught up with season two. Now, I only have to wait for Sundays in order to watch it and further procrastinate on doing other things I should be focused instead. Lucky me.

Believe it or not when this show first came on last year I couldn't stand it. I thought she was such a creep devoting her life to screwing over others. I just wanted her to move on! Then. . . this summer I decided to try it again and I cannot stop watching!

I love that you never really know what the heck is going to happen next. It's even better when even Amanda/Emily is surprised. Ah! Such a roller coaster.

I also love seeing Kyle from Roswell! Can someone please just off Amanda already?!

P.S. Finally figured out how to get your blog to show up in my reader so you better believe I will be commenting and reading much more often!

Hahaha I know! She does come off as some evil black spider, but I love Nolan. I also can't stand Amanda. She needs to be gone already. And I was sooo excited to see Kyle! Plus, Emily goes to Lancaster in that one episode, so that's a plus.
P.S. I'm glad you found out how to add me. I just figured it out too. I'm not so good at this blog thing. I'm not even sure how to connect it with my Facebook.

I LOVED that she went to Lancaster, but I spent the whole episode being jealous of her for being there. Can't wait to visit in just a few weeks!

The only way I could figure it out was via Twitter, but I can't remember the site I used to link it all up. Urgh. . In the future, I'll try to send any helpful tips your way before I forget them.

You should start doing some Weekly Memes like Top Ten Tuesday so we can beef up your fan base a bit before you become a famous author. :)

I will! I need to get into this blogging thing a little more. That way I can spruce up my page. It's a little boring, so I'll look into these meme things. Thanks!
