Its All Fun an Games ( of Thrones )



Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 12 months or so, you will have heard of ' Game of Thrones '. You may not have watched it, or read the ' A Song of Ice and Fire ' books from which they are adapted but you have heard of it. And if not, I feel pity for you because I, for one, am becoming just a little obsessed. I don't have pay TV so I have only seen series one of the TV show on DVD, but I've just started the 2nd part of the 3rd book ( there are five books in all ) and I'm hungry for more. Its kind of like 'Lord of the Rings ' mixed with ' The West Wing ' with a bit of classy porn and some blood and gore thrown in for good measure. There's some sex, some violence and lots of back stabbing, king-slaying, kingdom-making intrigue. In short, ' Game of Thrones ' is awesome sauce!

Jon Snow ( Kit Harrington ) = sexiest beast in Westeros!


Basically, if I come across any link that has anything to do with ' Game of Thrones ' I HAVE to click on it. It might be an interview with the cast, or an article dissecting the series; even better if its something like this cool name generator or a quiz to see which house you belong to ( for the record, I am apparently house Tully, which I found completely awesome since we named our daughter that before I'd even seen or read the series! ); or, the most fun so far? Making your own ' Game of Thrones ' house sigil! I made this one for my dad, who is also a fan of the series:

So - am the only geek girl spazzing out a little about ' Game of Thrones ' ? Have you seen it? Love it or no?

  3. I am so keen to watch this show. We have foster but we don't get showcase and I'm not paying extra for it (which means we also miss out on new True Blood too) but I am definitely going to be investing in the DVD's.

  4. I totally tried to comment on this the other day but my phone chucked a spaz and I'm come back to tell you something vitally important.
    Me, Game of Thrones, addicted. Books, TV, Memes!
    And also, Jon Snow (both in the written word and in the flesh). Sigh. You know nothing, Jon Snow. Especially nothing about how the mums of Oz are lusting after you!
