Is it really spring yet? Because I’m still cold and I don’t think that’s fair.

I spent most of my weekend watching Game of Thrones. I’ve read the books and am anxiously awaiting Book 6 – but the author is busy executive-producing (whatever that means) the series and writing an episode or two. STOP IT. Go finish the damn books and let other people do the series – they’re doing a fine job without you, George R.R. Martin.  Anyway … wow. Excellent job, series people. The casting is perfect. The story is remaining true to the books and the overall effect is magnificent. I hate the ones I’m supposed to hate, while loving the ones I’m supposed to love and even though I know how it goes (up to the final book, that is), I am still a little surprised and totally delighted with it. Peter Dinklage is sheer perfection as Tyrion Lannister.

But you wanted Unconscious Mutterings, didn’t you? Fear not, fair friends, I have that as well – “A Lannister always pays his debts.”  The words come from LunaNina and the answers come from you. Put your answers in the comments and let’s see how we match up. Ready?

*In my freshman year, I had an English teacher who was … odd. Probably brilliant, but definitely odd. If you asked him for a Kleenex, he would say “Kleenex is a brand name.” So you would say, “May I have a tissue?” and he would reply, “A tissue? I hardly know you.”

Here, have a Bad Lip-Reading of Game of Thrones. It’s worth 3 minutes of your time, promise.
