A place for posting stories, anecdotes, drunken ramblings, and the occasional thing that might or might not be related to GRRM and the series. ;)

Could someone be so kind as to finally ask George about how old Darkstar is? "Is he older than Arianne?" should do it. :P

Another possible question might be whether the Tullys would still have backed Robert's Rebellion without one or both marriage contracts (Catelyn to first Brandon then Ned, and Lysa to Jon Arryn).

Surely the liquor stores are already open, even if the bars aren't.

He's Dornish, so he might swing that way, I suppose.

Bet you'd have to suck his lemon first, though. ;)

The con is happening, even if no one who posts here is drunk yet. My husband is at the convention center today for a solar energy workshop and just texted me that he's having lunch next to a Klingon.

Yay, klingons! There weren't too many of them around at the L.A. Worldcon that I can remember, as compared to Glasgow or the reports I recall from San Jose.

I remember Mormont commenting on the lack of klingons at LA by saying "There's been a rift in the Klingon community".

Haven't seen any here yet, though I've only been in town for a couple hours.

Also not drunk yet, either.

I don't know...your height would have been a large advantage in at least one of the plans.
