My heart belongs to Dexter Morgan

I am in love with Dexter Morgan. He’s basically Batman, but better because Dexter kills people, which seems like the smart thing since Arkham Asylum has a revolving door.

Isn’t that what everyone is looking for? A sociopath with a heart of a gold? Or maybe it’s just me?

Anyway – I’m watching The Big Chill and it’s distracting me from whatever important meaningful thing I was going to say about Dexter, so just pretend I did say something while I feel nostaligic for an era that was an embryo through.

And as for the box set thing – I’d still enjoy it if you contributed your thoughts. So contribute them.

I love Kevin Kline. And Jeff Goldbloom. And Dexter Morgan.

Oh! You know what would be awesome? A movie like The Big Chill, but set now. Is that what Grownups was supposed to be? Because that doesn’t seem nearly as awesome as The Big Chill. Or Gross Pointe Blank. Or…

I don’t know. I’m rambling. The point is – I like TV.

  • Isn’t it great that when Dexter becomes superkiller DExter, he dons a tighter, slinky, long-sleeved shirt, so you can see his pecs? Because killers who kill bad guys are sneakysexy, right?


    I’m waiting until the season ends to go watch the whole thing in one long marathon with a girlfriend. We’ll wear jammies and DROOL. And yes, I’m 35 and can’t wait to put on my jammies and go have a popcorn sleepover where we drool over a boy. I’ll never grow up. NEVER!!!

    I love Dexter so much.

    Also, I just wanted to drop a line (slightly out of context, but it’s late and I’m procrastinating on other work I need to be doing) saying that I just discovered your My Blood Approves series yesterday, and I read the first two books in one sitting and loved them. I haven’t read the second two yet (which is driving me crazy), but I did want to say, thank you thank you thank you for Jack — and for a relationship where the girl chooses the truly wonderful, loving, good man over the mysterious sexy a-hole. It’s been driving me nuts about popular fiction lately, that so many of the “heroes” are the biggest douchebags on planet earth, but they pull in the heroines like no tomorrow. I think the love of the jerk in fiction fosters huge unhealthiness in real-life relationship expectations, and I’m so happy to see that in your books (so far), the beautiful, sweet, truly kind guy wins out.

    If you haven’t read the Dexter books, you should definitely check them out. The series is soo good but the books are so much better, in a way only books can be. Definitely a must read.

    I think the box set idea is great. If I didn’t live overseas (and have to pay postage) I would defiantly buy one for my friends. I probably wouldn’t buy one for myself though because I MUST buy all of your books the day they are released on kindle and as much as I love them I cant really justify having two copies. Not sure if this feedback helps at all but anyway.
