    You know, I've begun to realize that I might be a little OCD. I mean, I don't have to turn the light on-and-off 47 times before I feel comfortable with leaving a room or anything, but I've definitely started to notice certain things that pertain particularly with drinking.

    For some reason, the type of drink I'm drinking only feels right and tastes better if I'm drinking it from a certain receptacle. For instance, I find that beer just tastes better to me if drank (Drunk? Dranken? Drunken?) from a cold pint glass. Not just draft beer (though I love draft beer and this may be the reason)- if I'm at home and buy a case of Coors Light cans, I'm pouring every one of those into a cold pint. I don't know why this is- I grew up drinking cans/bottles. If I'm down the river or at the hunting camp or whatever I'll drink from the can all day, but at the same time, it just feels to me that it would be SO much better if I was drinking from a glass. I'll do the same with bottles and those new aluminum pints (which I love), too. Coors Light or good beer, it doesn't matter. I'm weird, but I'll do it all the same.

    It extends to other drinks, as well. Wine can be drunk from a plastic cup, theoretically. But fuck that, if its not in a wine glass, it might as well come from a jug. Bourbon must be consumed from a rocks glass (Tervis! Woo!) or , if on the go, a giant styrofoam cup. Fancy drinks must be in highballs (TERVIS! WOOOOO!), styros, or margarita glasses. I don't care what yall say- I'm right on this and anyone who doesn't like it is a jerk, I say!

    So yeah, like I said, I drink like a lobotomy patient with a shiny new toy.

    That being said- big weekend! GAME OF THRONES PARTY WOOOOO! Even The Wife, who has never read the books, is excited after seeing season 1. Though, to be fair, her big thing "eees to seeee what happeeens to dee Dragoon lady! I love her! I meeeeess my sun and stars!". Anyway, I'm getting together with my buddy at his house to smoke meat and drink beer all day so that we don't remember what happens when we watch it, and therefore have a reason to watch it again the next day. It'll be experimental, too, as I've got some alligator ribs that I've never cooked before that I'm going to try on his smoker with a Caribbean jerk rub and a pineapple/jalapeno glaze to go along with all of the other stuff we are throwing on the pit. We also have a big hunk of pork fat that we are going to try to turn into cracklin, another first for us.

    So yeah, as long as we don't get too drunk and burn our faces off on wood chips and rendered pig fat, Sunday should be a good day!

    Oh, and apparently some of you heathens are meeting each other on Saturday night in Chicago. Just remember- yall try to go easy on the poor goats and livestock, and you might want to bring some waders, a pair of goggles, and a sling shot. You know, just in case.

    My girlfriend is sick as a dog right now and I've got a big event tomorrow, so I'm hanging home tonight. If Netflix doesn't have JCVD on streaming, I'm going to be incredibly disappointed.

    JCVD is actually not a bad (faux) doc. Can't wait to see him in The Expendables 2.

    It was 80 degrees last week and it's going to snow tomorrow. Fuck you March.

    Snow tonight in the forecast too. Balls.

    However, the boyfriend ended up working with a Mythbuster yesterday, which is cool.

    JCVD shocked me how good it was. A truly dark arthouse thriller, and Van Damme was astonishing in it. It helps that he finally gets to speak in his native French language, and that scene where he pulls a Blair Witch with the camera is galvanizing.

    I'm off today with a very busy weekend ahead. I have about 38(possible exaggeration) loads of laundry to do today as well. Maybe it will be more fun if I make it a drinking game?

    I miss my Moon and Stars, too. Rawr.

    It's a shame we don't get to see Bloodraven's day in the series. Imagine a Varys type Machiavelli character, who instead of being a fat eunuch is an albino who lost one eye in battle who commands a legion of archers. And is also Hand of the King. Of all the characters in the game of thrones universe, he's the one I'd least like to fuck with.

    Depending on your point of view, Drogo was either murdered by a sorceress or his own wife. Still pretty bad-ass.

    Have you guys actually read all four books? I read the first two, started the third, and then got hopelessly bored. I'm still carrying it around with me everywhere in the hopes that I will miraculously become interested again.

    Also, last night I went out for $5 martini night with my girlfriends, which is not a genius plan when you have to be at work at 8AM. I did not close my front door last night, and this morning I left for work without putting a shirt on. Epic life fail.

    Funny that you said that. I knocked out the first two, impossibile to put down, the 2nd one especially because you have no idea what the fuck is going on. Read the first 2-3 chapters of book 3, and decided I could take a break to finish Hilarity Ensues. HE is great by the way. I don't have some of the TM baggage a lot of other people do, I read it, I laughed by ass off, and that's it.

    Busy fucking weekend coming up. Got a $20 drink-a-thon at 9:30 tonight. Then tomorrow night the FIRST Chicago Meet-Up will be tomorrow starting at 3pm.

    It's Friday!



    I feel like there's been sufficient time for this to be funny again.

    There are five books, and yeah I have read them all. Aside from the giant mass of characters, I really enjoyed the whole series.

    I have read all five. If nothing else, I highly recommend people read the first three. The 4th and 5th... have issues. Maybe the 6th will retroactively make 4 and 5 (particularly 5) better, but 1-3 are incredibly worth it and break pretty amazing ground.

    Meh.
    I can't get through the first book. Everyone tells me it's awesome, I can't keep my eyes open reading it long enough to get a page under my belt. It just ain't my bag.

    This book, however, is the shiznit. To each his own.

    I've also read all five. I actually enjoyed the 4th book, mostly because of the events occurring in King's Landing. The 5th book however left me disappointed and I felt that not a whole lot actually happened for how long the book is. I was especially disappointed with the Tyrion chapters. I know Martin really struggled with the 4th and 5th books so I'm hoping that the 6th book will return to the quality of the earlier books.
