Three Things

I bought a second Game of Thrones t-shirt. This time with the Targaryen sigil to go with my Stark sigil tee, and just in time for the premiere of the new season.
You can never have enough nerdy t-shirts.

And speaking of fantasy. . . I just finished reading The Golem and the Jinni and thought it was AMAZING. It’s about a genie and a woman made of clay in New York at the turn of the 20th century. Sounds a bit odd, and it is at first, but I was drawn in right away. The author did a good job defining the details which is so essential to making a fantasy novel great.

And speaking of fiction. . . I am SHER locked, ie. totally hooked on the BBC show Sherlock right now. Has anyone else watched this? It’s easy to get hooked because the show is so well done. The plots are intriguing, the deduction scenes are damn near genius, and sometimes it’s even funny. It will be definitely filling the British Television void left by Downton Abbey and The Paradise for the next little while.

  1. One of my best friends is addicted to Sherlock and keeps yelling at me for not watching it! Ha, ha. And she, like you, says that it fills the Downton Abby void right now… The funny thing is that I was one of the last people to jump on the Downton Abby train, and your blog – and my friend – were two ways that I had found out about the series (which I’m now addicted to). So I think I should take both of your advice and give Sherlock a try too!! :)

    • You definitely should get on the Sherlock bandwagon too. And let me know if your friend discovers any other good shows, because she clearly has good taste ;)

  2. I did not know you were into GoT so much lol… Amanda loves BBC Sherlock, I’ve caught a few episodes and they were pretty good. I just get tired of Watson being so confused all the time. Sherlock should dump his ass!

    • The only thing that bothers me about Sherlock is how he always “talks to Watson” when Watson wasn’t even at the apartment. You’d think, with his acute observation skills, that he’d have picked up on the fact that Watson wasn’t home.
