George R.R. Martin
“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

Mark Yeeha! Woohoo!


Kasia S. yippe horsey yippe.... laundry done, dishes done... I'm trying to relax before my shower, reading is definitely a great way to do that lol


Nick You wanted us to picture you in the shower, didn't ya?


Kasia S. Not really no, I've been catching up to housework and if I shower sweaty I feel like I keep sweating after I'm done... I just really love soap :)


Nick Really? That's a bit odd. Showers seem to stop me sweating.


Mark Whew, so much to get done in the day. The Febreeze opened up a buncha time, dinit? :P The only thing with Thrones, after you've read a couple of chapters in a row, it becomes hard to get all the brain-swirling to calm down! Keeping those alliances and silent-and-not-so-silent feuds straight. But I can't think of one that had so much going on yet still entertained like this one does!


Kasia S. Showers work a lot better if you're cool and calm when you start them, trust me!

I did my laundry, but I'm still not done with it, I have a little pile I will tackle on Saturday.

I guess with all the online arguing I'm always involved in I have no troubles keeping up with the drama.

You could think of it this way: Everyone is scheming against everyone. Except Ned.

It does seem that way!


Kasia S. Ned is cool, so far he reminds me of my dad :)

HP - I'm the cafeteria lunch lady giving out knuckle sandwiches lol


message 13: by Mark (new) - rated it 4 stars

Mark Ned does seem like your Dad! I even visualize him in the book-role as opposed to the LOTR dude. :)

Knuckle sandwiches with extra Conan sauce?? :D That's the kind of meal you like to watch others enjoy as opposed to having it yourself :P :D

Just the bigots and gay bashers, fascists and those who scream names at women with babies and no ring lol.

Mark In a word: Republicans? lol

Mark Oo, ooo, or: Dyersburgians? :P


Kasia S. Mark, did you see what Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) said about Romney? lol.. he said he's "the Thing, he only imitates human behavior, hes not actually human himself"... man I had a laugh!


message 18: by Nick (new) - rated it 5 stars

Nick Ahh, Mitt... I don't know how we survived having him as governor of Massachusetts.


Kasia S. He's always contradicting himself, John Stewart seems to find the best clips.


message 20: by Nick (new) - rated it 5 stars

Nick He's just... Mitt. That's the only way to describe him.


Kasia S. Massachusetts is awesome, I've only been there twice but I loved it.


message 22: by Nick (new) - rated it 5 stars

Nick Yeah, it's not bad. I need to get up to Boston more than I do. Or just move there. :P

Kasia S. And you can dine at the Quincy Market! So heavenly I still remember it.


message 24: by Mark (new) - rated it 4 stars

Mark I haven't seen that about Hamill, but I'll look it up! :D Sounds hilarious! During the 08 primaries R reminded us of a robot, devoid of any kind of human emotion. Skywalker has the right idea. Now, if only one of those alien thingees would infest him and we could just set him on fire... >:D

Nick I was in Boston this past winter with my sisters. We stopped in the north end, went to Quincy Market, and went to the Prudential Center. The Barnes & Noble there was drool-worthy, much better than the one in my town. They had all the books I had been looking for and I left with a copy of The Instructions, which was mammoth and shrink-wrapped.
