Dancing, Direwolves, and Awards

My fabulous friend, Jen Tucker, asked if I would like to join her and our friend,Tracie Banister, for a weekly blog for “Dancing With The Stars”…you know that I said YES!!! You can check out our very first post right here: Dancing With The Stars week 3

Leave comments, do a little waltz, have fun with us! I don’t watch every season of DWTS, to be honest. I have a big issue with DWTS and the fact that they do a two hour results show. (I hate this about all results shows that are over 30 minutes. Let’s be honest, you don’t need to give us a ton of filler fluff to lessen the blow of your favorite going home. Rip that band-aid off and get it over with. ) However, this season I tuned in to see how Laura “Half-Pint” Ingalls aka Melissa Gilbert would do while paired with the ego that is known as Maks. And then got sucked in, mainly due to the most gorgeous specimen I have seen in a while – William Levy!

“Game of Thrones” also made a spectacular season debut on April 1st Last year when GoT was getting ready to debut, the New York Times had a woman review it. She called it “boy fan fiction” and eluded to the fact that only weird girls who enjoyed p0rn would enjoy this series, but no female she knew would be caught dead watching something like this. Gee, I must know a lot of dead people because I actually know more women that watch GoT than men. And I have to tell you - they aren’t weird. They come from all walks of life, but they are all well adjusted adults. This year, NYT again did a review where they assumed that only the Dungeons & Dragons crowd would be watching GoT. Hmm, you know what happens when you assume, right? (This amused me as they ran, at the same time, an article on Peter Dinklage, who not only stars on Game of Thrones but won an Emmy for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister.) Luckily Huffington Post got it right. A great article by Alexandra Gekas. I embrace geek happily and I *LOVE* Game of Thrones!

The absolutely lovely, Tracey gave my Book Nook blog the Liebster Award! I am so touched that she did that! Please check Tracey out, she is one witty and fun lady to chat with. And watch my Book Nook blog for the award posting.

Okay, you know I went to read that NYT review and I got a good chuckle. She has a rating of 1.5 and the reviews consist of of "Hey, my wife loves that show..." and "Ignore this review it sucks."
