Enjoying It Medieval

Category: beginningsadmin @ 12:03 am

I should probably start off by saying that in the 1980s, I was barely born. So I never really had the opportunity to play things like Dungeons and Dragons or a lot of those weird role-playing games that all the older boys played. I don’t know that I would have done that, but I do not think that with my love of books and movies, and the fact that I had a very tomboy like existence, I probably would have enjoyed it. I do like the fact that some of the dice that my brother had when they used to play dungeons and dragons was pretty cool. I remember thinking that it seemed like a bag of jewels.

I guess I only bring up that old-school role-playing game because I started watching Game of Thrones lately. I honestly did not think that it would be one of the television shows that I would be excited about at all, but I do have to say that it is pretty amazing. I don’t know if it has a lot to do with the fact that I like the little princess and Knights of the round kind of stuff, or the fact that I maybe think that men need to be a lot more chivalrous these days ( hint, hint), but it’s just a damn great show.

Plus, I am really surprised by how raw this thing is. HBO is always one of those networks that I am very impressed with. I feel like they could do a series on Quaker oatmeal flavors and make it the most exciting cereal-based serial in the history of television. This thing has it all: battles, betrayal, violence, sex – and pretty freaky an all-out rough sex as well – and tons of weird mythological stuff. I never read the books, but a friend of mine recommended that I do so. I don’t know if I really want to do that though because they seem all very long and frankly I haven’t had a lot of time to do a lot of reading lately. Reading tends to be something that I do when I’m on the beach, and I certainly have not been on the beach for a couple of years now.

I guess that reminds me: some were supposed be coming soon and I really should think about getting a tan or something. I guess I am not going to get the best tan sitting inside watching television and eating popcorn. Nothing like a little logic to wake you up now and again.
