    There seems to be a terrible shortage of lower-case letters.

God that show is an unhealthy obsession i haven't guessed so much at a series since Lost!!!

    And again same here once school is over GoT along with like 200 books are getting read while I take a break from writing.

    I've had two hours of sleep, feel like the living dead, because i might have another bad case of allergies or just caught something, and I have to sit through a three hour bullshit course... I need today to be over like RIGHT NOW.

    Not to mention I have to make a kick ass powerpoint thesis presentation tonight, then wake up and see two doctors tomorrow, along with going to a class "fake present your powerpoint" meeting, which i'll most likely have to end up late too...

    This week is so far not turning out well at all!!! But this is my last week then one final... So i guess i can't really complain.

    I got a small ego boost the other day. I was explaining FREAKs to another writer on Chat and they said they really loved the idea and thought it sounded awesome! That made my month.

    Ahahaha. George RR Martin: freaking people out since A Clash of Kings was published in the 90s.

    Okay, from the top. The red woman is a priestess from a foreign country. She's here as an advisor to Stannis, the cranky guy who keeps correcting people. Stannis is the brother of the king who died in season 1 and therefore is legally his heir, since the king's children are illegitimate. The cool older bearded guy who rowed the red woman into the cave at the end is Davos ♥, another advisor to Stannis.

    The thing she gave birth to is popularly known as the shadowbaby. It is the creepy, creepy result of that time Stannis and the red woman had sex on the map table. The shadowbaby was born directly under Renly's castle, which is bad news for Renly.

    Does that help?

    Me too! I saw the first three books in the series at my local grocery store. Didn't have any money to buy them though but before I go off to college I am determined to read all of them.

    There's also a giveaway for GoT books on Goodreads. It ends tomorrow, I think. But I hope I win at least one of them.

    Hey everyone!

    How's it going?

    Tally, I shall do that when I get the time. I might have I read it again, it was that good.

    Anyways, I started Thirteen Reasons Why, and it's SO good. I can't put it down.

    I'm also trying to picture it as movie, which, according to imdb, is supposed to come out next year.

    I want to write soooo bad.

    But I have so much homework (again). My AP Calc teacher decided that it was a great day to give us a take-home test. It has over forty problems on it...urrrgh.
