    Secret Santa XII - Gifts are arriving!

    I am pretty sure my SS was Bex. Who sent me a beautiful scarf covered with birds - my favorites! AND so much black licorice I am set for the year! Love it, love it all. Thank you so much, SS - aka Silent Sister! And thanks to Lany for organizing yet again.

    Secret Santa XII - Gifts are arriving!

    Three separate packages of SS gifts have arrived. Unable to keep myself from opening them, I now have two kinds of licorice to eat and a beautiful silk scarf. With birds. So pretty! And here I thought I'd never find dark chocolate covered black licorice again. Not only did my SS find it, but found a version with chipolte - so even better! Thank you thank you SS. I am pretty sure I know who you are .... <3

    Scrolling quickly through this page, my mind captured the phrase "chocolate, chocolate logic" That is all. PS I may or may not be wrapping presents today.

    So very sorry for you loss, Lany. You were good to Draco and I know you'll miss him dearly. *big hugs*

    OMG - Can I still get in, pretty please?!?! I can't believe I missed the early sign-up.
  7. Hello, Julianne!

    I'm back! =o)

    How would you rate episode 401?

    9/10 for me. Some of the best quotes were in this episode. I loved Sandor and Arya. And the red viper did not disappoint.
  9. I agree. I had goosebumps when that scene started. They did a good job, from Dany speaking in Valyrian but the head Slaver not noticing because he was busy with the dragon. She was excellent and her character is really developing into a legitimate force! I also really liked the Jaime scenes. They had his rotting hand around his neck and made him drink horse piss, just like in the book. I expect the non-book reading viewers will start to have pity on his character now, too. Great episode, the best of the season for sure!

    You had a bad copy. The music didn't start until the credits started to roll. So you missed some dialogue.

      SHARKNADO!!!! Tonight we saw the Ghost Shark - so hilarious. I spent more on my last trip to Costco than the special effects budget for that movie. :-)

      Where have you been, woman? I've been missing you in EGs. :)

  12. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only reader who is totally annoyed by the Talisa character. I'm curious what the tv-only fans think of her. I didn't mind the Cat scene, because I know they were attempting to gather more sympathy for her. But I'm not sure this worked for me. The scene portrays her as someone who 'flip-flops' on who they love. That doesn't seem to be in Cat's book character. Her book character is a fierce mother, who is undeterred by her love of and loyalty to family. Book-Cat would go to the end of the world for her family/loved ones. She would NOT flip-flop back and forth between loving someone and despising them like tv-Cat did Jon.
  13. I noticed that too. Very clever on the credits. He's definitely lighter. Maybe it's the northern sun. ;-) Thoros of Myr was great. I loved him singing Rains of Castamere! yes, I think he was trolling for Lanisters. :-) That makes sense to me, too. I'm glad they are taking the time now to set that up. We book-readers know they won't be able to in future seasons.
