    Dany was most like named by her mother, Tyrion by his father, Jon by Ned.

    Bingo! Martin had to be careful not to call Ned Jon's "father".

    That seems to be a wonderful solution...as long as TK is willing to provide some snuggle-warmth when the ambient temperature is cool. Otherwise, you'll be forced to add the blanket back into the equation and all the old problems will be new again!

    Hmm...after glancing at your very helpful diagram I think I may see a possible solution. You see, it seems to me that blanket is occupying bed space wholly incommensurate with its status in the social hierarchy (its social status is, of course, inversely related to the ambient temperature). Would there be any way to convince your cat to perhaps share space with the blanket and, thus, free up leg space for you? I don't believe the blanket would mind

    Deadpool 2: Cross Universe Casting

    I kinda get the impression that the Deadpool character and Reynolds' inner monologue may be a perfect match.

    Don't forget Biehn as Johnny Ringo in Tombstone! After all, somebody had to be there for Kilmer's Doc Holliday to say "I'm your huckleberry" to

    Hey, you'll get no argument from me!

    Thanks for posting this! I hadn't seen it - only read about it. Those audience shots are priceless! I liked it all but I especially liked the calling out of the media and their coverage of trump. Because. remember, lies and the truth deserve equal time and coverage! Anything else would be biased! And, yes, that MW is now being bombarded with all sorts of vile threats is, unfortunately, like...the safest bet in the history of safe bets!

    "The Others Take You"

    I agree on all of this. I do also think the author is having characters use this phrase a bit ironically because it's just become a mundane curse devoid of the original meaning/weight (but that realization is on it's way back - big time!). Martin even had Robert, in effect, say "To hell with your 'mild snows'!" to Ned in my sig quote that I've always had particular fondness for because I feel it basically encapsulates the whole of ASoIaF in a brief, casual bit of conversation
  9. Yeah, I thought Newman wouldn't be back so drafting Hughes made sense because of that. But then I read that they think Newman will be back. Then it doesn't make as much sense to me...but maybe the deciding factor really was the return game help? And maybe because they "hope" they can get yet more out of Methuselah Newman (let's see how hyperbolic we can get about his age!) but they're not sure? I don't know... That NFC title game was a real heartbreaker in our house - even for me! It was like, by the time the Vikes knew what hit them, it was already over. And I think there had to be at least some emotional comedown after that miracle New Orleans finish. And, yes, trading back sometimes may be a good idea but, in the name of all that's holy, trade back up, too! I really, really love that the rookie salary cap has allowed so much more wheelin' and dealin' in the draft. It's great that, if teams see a player still available they really want, they feel like they can deal up to get him. Finally, I was just looking at the 2nd round draft order. Did I see that right? The Browns have three picks tonight, too?! Two right in the beginning and one at the very end?!!
  10. I didn't know anything about Hughes either but I thought it seemed like a decent pick because surely they'd need DB help due to losing old man Newman. Then I just read in the Star Trib that Zim supposedly thinks Newman can still play and that Hughes was not drafted to push Alexander. Don't know how much of all that I believe but I don't think it hurts to have another seemingly talented DB (with return skills) in the fold And I didn't know that about the stockpiling of 6th round picks. What are they gonna do with all those?! I'm with you - combine some of them into a more valuable pick or something! And, yes, the Vikes definitely need to concentrate on protecting their $84 million man Cousins now.
  11. Absolutely! And screw Allen for acting like he's the aggrieved party I'm still shaking my head at that whole Peterman thing and I'm embarrassed I was forced to kick the tires on him in a couple of fantasy leagues last year (I was heavily invested in Rodgers). I wonder how icy Allen's reception will be in that locker room? I suppose everyone has to make the best of it but...damn! And @Tywin et al., you were thinking the Vikes would trade out of the first round but they stayed put and took the DB Hughes. What do you think? Seems like a good pick to me. And, for what it's worth, Mrs. PotN thought her Vikes would go DB the whole way.
  12. Oh, completely agreed! I'm so glad all the stupid shit I did in my youth pretty much only lives on in participants' and observers' memories Also, I happened upon this article on Slate: The Most Dangerous Brain in the NFL. I thought it was kind of an interesting take...

    Here, too! (North Dakota) And "finally" is right! I heard on the local weather report the other evening that, if we made it past April 20 without reaching a daytime high temp of at least 60 F, it would set a new record for the latest in the year for that to happen. It looks like that record is going to be extended by one day. We are supposed to be above 60 F tomorrow but we won't reach it today. We're finally having a bit of nice weather but it's still only in the 50s F.

    Yep! ...and that's why Deadpool so eagerly said "You're in!"
