Our True Blood Ohana




The Sheriff Caught the Crazy Toilet Paper Lady on Sunday!


Every Sunday night for the last 12 weeks, a group of East Hawaiian friends has gathered together to watch Season 2 of True Blood on HBO as the True Blood Ohana. Ohana means family in Hawaiian and it can mean extended family as in this case. For those of you who have been living under a rock, True Blood is a campy show that Alan Ball (Six Feet Under & American Beauty among others) produced for HBO. The premise for the show is that True Blood has been invented, it is a drink that feeds vampires so that they do not have to drink the blood of humans any longer, hence, they are no longer a threat and can integrate somewhat into society. Somewhat is the key word here. It is a show perfect for watching with a large group as there are lots of laughs, ooohs and ahhhs, ewwws and occasional applause. We record the show on our HD DVD Recorder and play it back after we have consumed a luscious dinner and cocktails. 15-18 of us pile into our theater room and find our places. We usually end up at our house because we have a 6' HD Projection Screen, but we have been at a couple of other houses for the get together over the summer. Everyone brings dishes of food and drinks and we laugh, visit and catch up on gossip. I love our True Blood Ohana, even more than I love True Blood the show. Our meals usually have a theme and we have done all kinds of great ones, from Mexican, Tapas, Mezes and this week for the finale, all stops were out, we had a Ragin' Cajun dinner complete with Swamp Juice and a Chocolate Cake with blood red frosting! And this, being the finale, we also dressed up as our favorite characters from the show.


Some of the costumes were priceless!


Here is Wes in his "Sookie Look"

This is hilarious! I think possibly Wes has a new photo for his business website?? I admit to being one of the peeps that lives under a rock. We don't have TV, we do have Netflix however, I'll have to rent the series. Too funny!
