  1. When you look up "inscrutable" in the dictionary, you find a picture of Joey Crows.

    What instrument? I have a friend who has a freakish ability to pick up just about any instrument from sitar to organ to bagpipes and not only play them, but repair them when necessary.

    Looks like we wait a few more weeks.

    Good! That makes me wonder if the rest of our crowd is interested in starting now or if they need more time? @Pebble, @Count Balerion, @Lady Blizzardborn, @Buckwheat, @The BlackBear, @Jez Bell, @rocksniffer, @Annara Snow, @Cridefea, @HelenaExMachina who else should I ask?

    Not boring, imo. I think you have your priorities right, and it's important to recognize and be cognizant of those times when things are good for when they aren't and you can look back and remember that things weren't always bad. Conversely, here in the chicken coop, things were pretty rough when Chickee was in college, but that's over and we can look back and feel relieved we survived and are feeling pretty good about things now. Hopefully, the good times outnumber the bad.

    So glad to hear everything went & is going well. Congratulations on your marriage!

    35C? Yikes! How long has it been that hot? Are you getting any rain or is the countryside drying out? We had a few days close to that warm - back in July, but most of the summer has been under 30 C I would say. Life's been quiet, mostly pleasant. Not much to talk about aside from politics - and that is topic best avoided, no? I see you and Meera were speaking of beverages recently. I'm pretty boring on that front as well - two beers is enough. I like cocktails, but I would be under the table after a couple or three (hard to stop once you get started) because I'm a light weight.

    Oh, hello! Hi RB! I do still check in from time to time, but mostly to see what's going on with acrophobia, and if I should host the next game. Hope everyone is well and cooled down over there in Europe.

    Bumping for TWOW V5

    I hope you're right. I'd have felt a lot better about things if the book had come out before season 7 - or at least before s.8. As it is I have no faith that the show & D&D won't have influence on what Martin writes.

    Bumping for TWOW V5

    I am stunned. The end of the show would have been the perfect time to announce a release date for TWOW . . . or maybe not, given how poorly the final season was received. My only explanation for the delay is George is having to tailor the original plot line to fit the show - or at least not diverge too violently. But how do you call back the fact that in ADWD Brienne was leading Jaime off to Stoneheart to be executed (in all likelihood) while D&D have Jaime going to Dorne with Bronn? Even a great writer can't make sense of that mess. eta: what has the show's poor final season done to potential book sales? Maybe the publisher just wants to give people a year to forget?

    Acrophobia 35B: Death Comes As The End, Final Round Voting!!

    With August being a big vacation month some places, it would seem smart to wait till almost September anyway. If we did that would you be able to host then?

    Events you are most looking forward to see in TWOW

    Has GRRM dropped any hints lately? I think when the book is finally in my hands, all else in life will cease while I read.

    More Acrophobia Leftovers!

    My habit is to send in the first thing that comes close to working. Jon Snow was the only one where I worked really hard to come up with a better entry than the one I sent in. The closest I came was this one which FB thought might not resonate with non American voters: Nashville beckoned: electric debut fatality.

    Lady Blizzardborn mentioned hosting, but if she can't, I would be happy to.
