Recommended Posts

I am chongjasmine, and I come from a small country, Singapore.


I love to read books, especially fantasy books.


I love to sleep, as well.


And I love to post in forums. I post in many forums beside this, and I often use the name chongjasmine in my posts.

Hi, fairly new poster here



Big fan of epic fantasy, so of course I love the series in book and TV formats. I'm a self-employed small farmer in northern Michigan, doing goat dairy, goat meat, chickens for meat and eggs. Active 4-H mom as well. I also ride horses and compete in endurance rides (long distance cross country). I also have a sheep and an Angora goat and do some fiber crafts like spinning, weaving and crochet. We have a Great Dane for our house dog, which is like having a direwolf that sleeps all the time.



And right now, being in northern Michigan is a bit like living north of the wall (cold, lots of snow and pine trees and everyone hunts). I half expect to see White Walkers and mammoths when I wake up in the morning.

Welcome, Heidrun! :cheers:



Your username sounds quite Germanic - do you have ancestry in Germany/Austria/Switzerland?

Nope, but I love Norse mythology. Heidrun was the great she-goat in Valhalla and mead flowed from her udders. My fiance and I just watched "Thor; The Dark World" last night and when Anthony Hopkins as Odin told Natalie Portman/Jane Foster that she was as out of place in Asgard as a goat at a banquet table, I explained to him that "The gods ALWAYS had at least 3 goats at ANY banquet table of theirs. Heidrun for the mead and Thor's goats Tanngrisnr and Tanngrindr (Tooth-gnasher and Tooth-grinder) had the unique ability to be cooked, eaten and resurrected so long as their bones were intact. Little disappointed that Marvel hasn't decided to show 2 giant goats in those movies ... but what can one do?



I'm actually a mish-mash of Eastern Europe: Polish, Ukrainian & Russian. Although Poland and Russia were settled by Norse tribes from Sweden. My late husband was German/Austrian and Blackfoot Indian, so my last name is German. And most of my goats are of Swiss breeds: Saanens and Alpines.



Thanks for the welcome, Lord Tyrion! :cool4:

Thank you for the explanation. =o)

Btw. Please do not forget the underscore. There is another "Lord Tyrion" around here, but I am the Spam King "Lord_Tyrion".

Hi everyone! My name is Guillermo, from Spain. I'm reading the books in English (I'm just finishing the 4th) What else? Oh, I've never watched the TV series... I admit this is unusual :D My plan is to watch all the season when I read ADWD.

I haven't introduced myself yet, but better late than never...



I'm 24, I live in Germany, came here about 15 years ago with my family. I was born and raised in Egypt. I have been a reader of fantasy literature basicly since I was taught to read... ASOIAF is my all time favorite.


I'm a science student, love to party and listen to electronic music... I've been playing volleyball for many years, but have neglected it lately....


I did not know this forum existed for a long time... so I am happy that I found it and so many people that love the books as much as I do....
