    Yay! Countries! Yay! Humans!

    I work with colleagues from all over the world, both in my office and in our regional offices scattered globally, and 95% of the time, getting to know my international workmates is a delight. I love hearing all your different languages, I love seeing all your different cultures, and I adore seeing how similar everyone really is when it comes down to it. Particular shoutout to the lovely people I know from Norway, Canada, Lebanon, Kenya, Senegal, Taiwan and the Netherlands. The other 5% of the time, I'm dealing with people from two particular offices that will remain nameless and cause me to swear at my computer screen, but yay to the 95%!

    Makeup VI : SPFantastic

    I've done the oil-cleansing thing a lot, and it really helped clear my skin up. I use a mix of castor oil and jojoba oil, though, and sometimes add a couple of drops of lavender or tea tree essential oils to my blended bottle of oil. I do moisturise afterwards, but I often actually just use a couple more drops of jojoba oil to do that.

    I find these things fantastic for applying foundation and concealer. I can never get them to blend properly with a brush.

    Vote on the Reputation System

    I have no problem with people -1ing my posts, so long as I know why they've done it. Waiving anonymity would help, as I feel that in most cases, on seeing who had given me a negative rating, I could probably figure out why, as I feel I know enough about the opinions of most boarders to be able to do that. At the moment I generally seem to use positive ratings on posts where I strongly agree with what has been written, and particularly on posts where someone has written exactly what I would have written myself, except they've done it far more eloquently. I've been using negs mostly for posts which I find offensive (like that lovely Margaery/Renly one linked earlier).

    Vote on the Reputation System

    My feeling is that the rep system would be a lot more useful if there was more indication of what positive or negative rep actually meant. As I said in another thread, if the +/- signs could be changed to Agree/Disagree or Helpful/Unhelpful or Like/Dislike, or something along those lines, there would be more value in looking at someone's rep or at the post rep. If that's not possible, maybe even a sticky post with some indication what what we're assuming it means? The way it is at the moment, positive rep could mean "Great, informative post" or it could mean "Made me laugh" or it could mean "This person is my best friend and I'm giving them positive rep on every post they make" or it could mean "I agree with everything written". I like the public voting history idea. If people are giving me rep one way or another, it'd be useful to know who did it so I might have more of an idea why. Might also stop some of the silly rep giving.

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    David and Dan! :) The cast is awesome. Cannot wait to see them on screen. I'm still slightly in shock at just what an amazing cast you've assembled. I didn't expect that we'd get so many fabulous actors. I'll hopefully catch up with you in Belfast and get to say thanks in person. Buy you both a pint!

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Yeah, considering GRRM said that his original perfect casting for the Hound years ago was Ron Perlman, I'm not sure that Sandor is supposed to be handsome. And not all women squee over tormented souls. Just sayin' ;)

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    He's not mentioned. I could be remembering incorrectly, but don't we meet Barristan for the first time as the royal party and Starks are travelling down to King's Landing? He shows up with Renly and Ilyn Payne, and Sansa tries to guess who they all are. If he was at Winterfell during the feast and all, surely she'd already know?

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Jorah, Rodrik and Waymar Royce are the three knights in the pilot episode, other than Jaime.

    *grumbles* I'm starting to dislike you two ... :P

    Littlefinger?

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I'm pretty sure GRRM once said that he envisioned Rowan Atkinson as Varys. I may have just made that up, though.

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    I'd assume Sean Bean for Ned, on the off-chance we were right about GRRM's hints. He just doesn't have the right look for Jaime, IMO, and I think he comes across as too old. I'm not sure that there is much of an age gap between Ned and Jaime, but in my mind's eye, I see Ned as plainer, and careworn, and solemn, whereas Jaime is younger-looking for his age, drop dead gorgeous and flashy. Sean Bean fits far more into the Ned mould than the Jaime one, I'd say, although I do think he's good looking.

    Hello from Benioff and Weiss

    Oh god, you mean GRRM is starting to using foreshadowing in his announcements now? That's going to send my brain into spasms. (Not that this would not be awesome should it be true. Sean Bean for Ned would be utterly fantastic. Just need Gillian Anderson for Catelyn, and I'll explode with happiness)
