Huh. Well, I feel like a jackass. I waited til all the episodes of American Gods were over to even think of watching it because I thought I'd have to do the free trial thing on Amazon. Nope, turns out we have that channel but since I pretty much watch all of three channels (six if you count me getting lucky and the HD versions of those channels working) I didn't realize it.

But I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make it through this series because holyfuckballs, I don't need or want to see that much blood and carnage. o_O Soooo... what is a girl to do?

Distract herself with the tale of the Sephora Birthday Order, I suppose. Monday I ordered something small and ponied up for the Flash Shipping (mainly so I'd get my shiny and my freebies super fast but also because you never know when you're gonna need it in the future), all so I could get my birthday 'freebie' as well as one of the 100 point perks. I'll be honest, it was the perk that actually pushed me to make the order. Anyway, I did this around noon because that afternoon is when the storms of doom rolled through.

Tuesday comes and goes without any movement on the Sephora front. Weird but... okay. Wednesday. Nothing. So I check the payment method and I was billed for the Flash but the regular order is still under pending. Huh. So I send them a message and a few hours later I get a message on FB that says hey, we dropped the ball, so sorry. Gonna light a fire under warehouse's ass to get your order out and here's 200 points to say we're sorry. That's actually pretty spiffy since it puts me at over 500 points (lest you think I do a lot of Sephora shopping, I think it's mostly gifts over the years and the 10 points a month from the box) and that's where some really fun freebies appear.

But Wednesday comes and goes completely without any movement. K, I get it. Thursday nothin'. Uh...
Thursday evening I get an email that says due to the Flash Shipping basically being not freakin' applied, I'm getting a $10 credit on my account. Sooo... that's cool. Shortly after that, I get a shipping email that says that hey, my Play box has shipped and so has my birthday order. My play box arrived around noon today but I'm still waiting on UPS to roll on through.

Assuming the order gets here safe and sound, I will give Sephora credit on being good at making things up to you. Extra points and an account credit? Yes, please.

In other news, I spent the morning cleaning. You absolutely cannot tell and I know this because I said that to Mums and she said, "I could tell." I perked up and asked, "Really? How?" as I wondered if she'd noticed the 16 layers of dust had disappeared off a corner of the room, or how the piles of papers or whatever had moved and shrunk. "I heard you."

Sigh. Took hours and the only person who can tell is me, and that's only because I know where to look. G'ah.

I think the first episode with the mysterious slaughter of Shadow's lynch mob was the bloodiest. Most of the other gore is actually Laura in an almost playful Death Becomes Her sense.

It's the dicks and sex that are way more prevalent, including the most graphic gay sex scene ever shown on TV, but the show does interesting things with the universe and expands on the book so much that it's really worth watching. AG is my second favorite Gaiman thing and I like most of what they're doing with it.

I'm trying to remember all the eps, but I'm not at all bothered by violence, so it's not something I really note. That scene does get revisited in a later ep, showing who actually saved Shadow. It might have been a little more graphic then, but I was so busy cheering the character on that I didn't really notice. I don't consider Technical Boy's Clockwork Orange constructs to be people either, so it wasn't disturbing at all for me.
