For those of you who wonder what else I post about...

This wasn't supposed to be an exclusively ASOIAF-related blog, despite what it looks like. I have posted about other things before, and I will resume doing so shortly. (My ASOIAF readers might ask where I'll find the time, but time management is about to become my new thing, so... I hope it works.)

Anyway, I'm out for now, flying somewhere from somewhere else. Details will follow shortly, as will the reason for secrecy. So, have a great few days, and tune in soon.

P.S. This made me laugh so hard that I was in tears. If you own a dog, you might feel the same way. Of course, if you own an intelligent dog, maybe you won't understand at all. From Hyperbole and a Half: Dog.

#ASOIAF Re-Read: A Game of Thrones, Part 26

Hello friends. As you read this I may or may not be flying again. I'm either really cold or really hot, depending on whether I'm in the air-conditioned plane or on the broiling land surrounding the airport. Seriously... 40+ degree weather? (That's 104 F, I think.) Could global warming be real?

Anyway, you're probably here to catch up on some ASOIAF tidbits. The re-read will follow, as usual, but in case there's anyone who doesn't know, you can find out more info about all the books at sites like Tower of the Hand, and I trust by now you've all see the trailer for next year's A Game of Thrones series? Stay up to date on all the last from casting to filming to swashbuckling lessons at Winter is Coming. And then there's the big one, GRRM's Not A Blog blog.

Right. Let's get cracking. Tonight's one measly chapter (hey, I'm flying around in a laptop- and PDA-free world) features a young northern girl who is a tough, controversial survivor. Sansa.

If you're new to the blog, this all began with an intro post. Our last recap was Part 26. To track this blog, you may click the RSS button, or the Follow button. Perhaps Twitter is your thing? Then use the #ASOIAF tag. Warning: Posts and comments can have spoilers for the rest of the series.

#ASOIAF Re-Read: A Game of Thrones, Part 25

Greetings, dear readers. This delay was brought to you by a week's worth of job fun (not fun at all), a long-weekend camping trip, and a solar-pulse induced blackout. For real. The burst of solar energy was actually supposed to fill the night sky with northern lights, but even though I waited in the heat without air-conditioning, while the contents of the fridge and freezer thawed and melted, I saw nothing. Which sucks because people saw them about 50 kms north of here (that's 31 miles for the Imperialists). So I have yet to see the northern lights. Sigh... Did anyone else see them? Care to link to pictures you may have taken?

But hark! the re-read beckons. Today we cover Chapters 54-56. But first, do you know that there might be spoilers ahead? Do you know that if you're a first-timer, you can start the re-read over at the intro post? And do you also know that you can keep track of this blog by clicking the RSS button, or the Follow button, or by using #ASOIAF on Twitter? Did you?

Well... this post isn't getting any shorter.
