Of Turkey and Tudors

November 30, 2007

Had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with fantastic friends, delicious food, bucketsquelf.jpg of wine and board game called Quelf that I highly recommend (by the end of play one friend had his hand wrapped in tinfoil, another had a box under her dress and there was an egg sitting on the middle of the board) no seriously, it’s fun. Later in the evening we found the karaoke.jpgOn Demand karaoke channel which proved to be a lot of fun…until the next morning when I woke up with laryngitis! Yeah, it sucked, but my sister and her husband took care of me, making me tea and turkey sandwiches and, the piece de la resistance: we had free premium cable channels all weekend!

the_tudors.jpgOn Sunday morning I decided to give The Tudors on Showtime a look…and ended up watching the entire season! It was pretty fascinating what with all the drama, death, intrigue and sex – did I mention the sex, wowza! But really, I think it was the hot guys that kept me going. It’s a great cast: Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Sam Neill, Jeremy Northam, Gabrielle Anwar (forgotten all about her hadn’t you? yeah, me too),cavill.jpg but I have to say, Henry Cavill is my new boy crush. I think it’s because he has that cocky/bad boy look and sadly that always seems more attractive…

Anyway, I’m thinking I may have to sign up for Showtime so I can catch the second season next year – great, another distraction, just what I need!!
