Also, Joe doesn't believe me, but "khaleesi" is really fun to say. Khaleesi khaleesi khaleesi.

Every morning, I get to work and make myself a To Do list for the day. Or I make it the night before. Or I have stuff leftover from the previous day and THAT'S my To Do list. IT DOESN'T MATTER, my point is, I always have a To Do list of stuff. Just always.

After spending the morning doing everything BUT things actually on my list, I looked at my sad little uncrossed-off list and started adding things I'd already done just so I could cross stuff off. I wish I could tell you that this doesn't happen often but I'm trying not to be such a liar because Joe doesn't like it when I tell him stuff like, I don't know, that I speak Urdu, which is the lie I told him BEFORE WE EVEN MET because Natalie Portman taught me that lying is adorable.

I guess my point is that I don't have one, I just haven't written anything in YEARS and so this is me. Writing stuff. And throwing it all over the internet. Hi, Internet!

So here's something you may not know about, I don't know, LIFE. It turns out that if you spend all of Sunday watching Game of Thrones, the weekend goes really, really quickly. Also, here is some advice. If you're at the store because you tried to rent movies but you've A) seen all the good ones or B) don't feel like delving into the insanity that is Tree of Life on a Saturday night, and you decide instead that what you'd really rather watch is Game of Thrones so you stop getting spoiled about everything and finally figure out what the deal is with this Joffrey puke, but the library never has Game of Thrones in because everyone else wants to watch it, too, and the video store (Sidebar: Why do you call it the video store when they no longer have videos? Discuss.) never has it either or they have every disc BUT THE FIRST ONE so, yeah, obviously your only option is to buy it but when you get to the store, they only have the blu-ray version which is way more expensive (probably?), so you decide to be responsible and only get the first season instead of seasons one AND two, and I'm just here to tell you, go ahead and buy the second season while you're there, screw responsible, because what's going to happen is you'll spend Saturday night and Sunday morning watching the first season and then you'll realize you're going to run out of show before you run out of Sunday, so your husband is going to have to go out and buy the second season while you sit and fret about whether the store will still have it and so, to make yourself feel better, you sing the song you made up about Game of Thrones that goes (to the tune of the Lord of the Rings music): Game. Of. Thrones. It's the game, it's the game, it's the game, it's the game. It's the Game. Of. Thrones.

Which is a TERRIBLE song, way worse than the Doctor Who song you made up that just goes: Doctor Whoooooooooooooooo, Doctor Whoooooooooooooo, Doctor Who, Doctor Who... and so on.

So I guess my point is, now we're watching Game of Thrones, which is really cutting into my rewatching The X-Files project, but I will make that sacrifice because KHALEESI'S GOT DRAGONS Y'ALL!

  1. OMG don't get me started on the whole video store discussion. Matt and I have had weekend long semantical discussions about "video store" vs "media store" and whether anyone but us actually cares so long as they've got the newest season of token popular show in stock.

    1. Do you still say you're going to tape something instead of DVR or record? Because I do.

  2. Lying is adorable. When Natalie Portman does it. And when you do it. You lying about knowing Urdu was pretty damn endearing right off the bat.

    And that is a spectacular run-on sentence, there, Patrick Bateman.

  3. I had to look up Urdu. I'm seriously impressed that you fibbed about speaking Urdu.

    2. Sometimes I find that the more outrageous the lie, the more believable it is.

    3. She is a fantastic liar. (I had originally written "spectacular" liar, but then realized I'd used it in a comment above and I didn't want to repeat myself. But since you can see that I removed the comment, I thought I should explain myself as to why I did that. I know, fascinating, right? SHUT UP JOE.)

  5. In the game of thrones, you win or you die of buttsores because you've been sitting on the couch so long because it's soooooo good.

    I can't wait until you're caught up. Season three is SO GOOD.

    1. I think we're about halfway through Season 2? Maybe more. But we'll have to wait to catch up until S3 is on DVD. Wah wah.
