I spot Jon Snow in your profile picture, @WinterWench, welcome!

Welcome @DelSnow, and there is of course no such thing as Jojenpaste.
A belief that's hard to kill in spite of the evidence.

Welcome @Gwenfrewi, pray tell, has "Gwenfrewi" a meaning to the name?
Shyness does not come into play on a web forum, I suppose?

Haha I know, it's pretty outrageous but it's one of the crazier theories I've loved reading about. Thanks for the warm welcome :)

Hello! I'm Sarah. I'm in the Philadelphia area. I am a graduate student studying library science, and I hope to work in a public library some day. I had tried a couple times to read AGOT over the years but couldn't quite get into it enough to keep going. I started watching the HBO series last fall. Around that time I adopted two cats, one of whom is an all-white, (and deaf!) male, so naturally I named him Jon Snow. :D His sister is named Minerva. Anyway, I finished Season 4 Episode 10 last week and was blown away, so I gave the books another go and now I'm hooked. I'm really enjoying reading these forums. I love speculation and theories and what not. My hobbies include book blogging, cooking, baking, creative writing, and journalling. Looking forward to seeing you around!

Welcome to Westeros! :cheers:

I guess I missed your post earlier. Mrs. Chicken & I live in VT, but our "little" Chickee is at college in Philly.

Hello everyone! I joined this forum a couple years back when I discovered the series, but I am just now using my account! My name is Haleigh and I'm 21. I live in Michigan and I'm in college, studying geology. I heard about the HBO series first, then picked up the books. I'm currently halfway through the 5th one, I just wish I had more time to read. I hate writing about me, but just thought I'd introduce myself :)

Well done then, and welcome to the forum, @haleigh!

Until finished reading the fifth book, beware of spoilers.

Welcome to Westeros Gwen! :cheers:

There are other SCA folk here & I have an RL friend who was in the SCA, though I've never partaken myself.

And for the shy part? You're in good company. :) And you might enjoy this thread: http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/126005-tttne-452-the-spam-ball/page-26

It's called TTTNE = the thread that never ends, also known as "the spam".

haha yeah I figured I'd find other SCA people here. Especially since the books seem to take place during a more medieval era. And I'm usually just shy at first but after that it's mostly just me being being quiet and introverted lol. I'm quite different when I'm at an SCA event and portraying my celtic character Gwen.

Hi, I'm new. I've been lurking the forum for quite some time but I couldn't make my mind on what username I would choose.



Well, here I am.



I'm 39, I'm from Florence, I first started reading the books more or less when the tv series was announced. By the time the first TV series started I was about to finish reading AGOT for the first time.



Since then, I've read three times the first four novels and two times ADwD.



As everyone else, I can't wait for the next one.

Welcome @Hoppy Hour, do you do the Lindy Hop?

Whenever I meet someone from Florence/Firence I usually tell a true story: I once knew a girl named Florence, but I met her in Munich (Monaco) ;-)

Checkout my signature, as you have been busier with the books than I have, respect!

Welcome all newbies! :cheers:

Here's some Lindy Hop for ya Hoppy Hour. If you don't Lindy Hop, do you like Mr Hoppy in Esio Trot?

Actually it's more of a beer reference. I really can't dance. I also had to google for Mr Hoppy in Esio Trot.
