Gush and Gripe #11

Gushing on Homeland
I've been bingeing on several TV shows lately and after my Life marathon on Netflix, I realized that I developed a crush on Damian Lewis! Aside from Prince Harry, I'm really not into redheads but dang nabbit! Damian Lewis is one hot firecrotch! So I started watching HOMELAND and short end of the story, I'm hooked!

HOMELAND is basically about a bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) who is investigating/obsessing on Marine Sargeant Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) who was captured and tortured by terrorists in Afghanistan for eight years. After his rescue Mathison got a tip implicating that a certain Marine joined the enemy and is now a threat to the US. Thus the cloak-and-dagger begins and mayhem ensues in every episode.

I'm not a big fan of Claire Danes but several episodes into the show and she found a new fan in me. No wonder this girl got Emmy's and Golden Globes! Add Mr. Lewis and my other guilty pleasure, Rupert Friend, into the mix and my eyes are just about glued to the screen! The plot is gripping and the acting is just superb, if you haven't seen an episode, you're missing out on something really good!

Griping on Flu Season
For the past couple of days I've been doing my darnest keeping the damn flu at bay. I've been holing up in my room, getting water drunk, munching on chewable vitamins like tic tacs. Right now I'm on the brink of either getting past it or succumbing to the damn virus. I don't have a fever yet but I get the symptoms like itchy throat, headache and the sniffles, which is really gross and the coughing part is really a bitch! I want to reach down my throat and scratch my esophagus out! I got the virus from my 3yo nephew, whose like a virus magnet and is quick to pass it on to his aunt. The little bugger is now better while I am suffering slowly everyday. 


  1. GAH! I'm still trying to get over my cold/flu virus and it sucks. Been hassling with it for almost a week. I hate my life. I wish my white blood cells would already go ninja on the damn flu bugs and let me be rid of them already.

  2. I've been thinking about getting Homeland off of Netflix, since everyone seems to love it. I've had crushes on Damian Lewis and Rupert Friend since seeing them in The Forsyte Saga and The Young Victoria, respectively. I love me some English costume dramas!
