In Which I Fangirl a Bit, and Little Else
You guys, I’ve been slacking off, as far as posting goes.
For those of you who were worried, it’s okay. I’m not dead or dying or horribly maimed and lying in a ditch somewhere. I’m actually making eggs right now. Eggs with cheese in them. And I will also have toast, and then later I’m going to go donate blood with my geek!girl friend, Shana.*
I would tell you that I have been busy – so busy – coming up with brilliant content for this blog, for you, just for you. But I haven’t. You know what I’ve been doing?** I’ll tell you.
On Monday, I don’t remember doing much. I washed a lot of dishes, and tried to make fried chicken and mashed potatoes. Both of these things failed, and only one of them was edible after all was said and done. Later, to make me feel better, Eric took me out for ice cream.
Last night, I didn’t do much again. I did more dishes, and then we went to go see LOTR: Return of the King extended cut in theaters. Then we went to Shana and Kevins for waffles, bacon, and a viewing of Dante’s Inferno portrayed with puppets and partially voiced by Dana Snyder. YES.
Mostly I’ve just been reading Game of Thrones, though.
There’s something fantastic about this story. I’ve already seen the whole first season of the television show, so all of the disappointment of horrible things to come I already know, and I still love it. One of my classmates told me that he tried to like the book, but the brutality of the author ruined it for you. I don’t know if I’m allowed to refer to this friend by name here, so we’ll refer to him as Statler.
This is what Statler has to say about Game of Thrones:
“Sorry I am one of the ones who thinks that the whole series pretty much sucks. Oh this is a cool charac…DEAD ok… This is a nic….DEAD! DEAD! MAIMED DEAD DEAD DEAD! No thanks.”
I haven’t read much high or epic fantasy the last few years; I’ve stuck mainly with urban or steampunk. But there’s something so… organized about GoT that I can’t help but love it. It makes sense. I actually understand the language without trying too hard. Also, Sean Bean.
In other news, I have done zero writing the last week, and it is also time for me to continue reading GoT. I’ll post something worth your time tomorrow, promise, because tomorrow I have nothing else to do.
*Also I have to go do a drug test for a job I might be getting, so hopefully the eggs I’m about to eat are not full of meth.
** I actually haven’t been playing Facebook games, for once.
