Game of Thrones Season 5: Episode 1: A total UNspoilery post!

GoTS5Poster

We’ve made it to Friday! EEK! WHOOP! This was also the week that Game of Thrones returned to our screens. Yes, fans wept and countries across the globe gave up productivity for entertainment.

The first episode was a great first episode. It is entertaining but not overwhelming, slowly easing you back into Westeros.

That.Theme.Song. I just want to do great things while listening to it!

The glimpse we get of young Cersei is spot on. Everything is there: the snooty cloak of royalty she dons like she was born with it, her demanding personality and that quiet desperation because even as a young girl she knew that her fate would always not be in her hands.

Intriguing… new crazy religion introduced in episode one. Like we don’t have enough of it with Melisandre being cray-cray.

Speaking of old Melly, and her ratchet king Stannis Baratheon, them at the wall exerting their power promises some interesting moments. Jon Snow is there, and as everyone knows, Jon Snow never let’s common sense come in the way of making his intentions and beliefs known.

Daenerys Targaryen is still insanely beautiful, obstinate and bad ass. I love that she always has a smart ass comment ready for some fool who would think she is not a Queen.

This is a season 4 pic… but man that boy is fine

Daario Naharis. Holy smoky. If GRRM does not pop him I will be happy. I also like that he has become part of Daeny’s council, not just her bedmate. Although she is quite blessed to have him there 😀

No Arya Stark in this episode. I’m not totally as crazy about her as the rest of the world, she actually annoys me quite often, but beware she’s not in right now if you are looking for her.

Sansa… where does a girl in Westeros get such hair dye? I LOVE her red locks.

PS: Someone dies. Not saying who though. You’re on your own with that! 😀

Have you seen this episode? What did you think??

Thoughts 9.1

Firstly, this post was initially incredibly whiney, (sadly not WINE-y). I edited a lot to make it not seem like an incessant moan session, so if you are reading this, know that I love you (in a purely unfreaky way) enough to change a post to positive. It started off one night as I forced myself off the internet (you freaking addictive thing).

It is September, which means Spring. I am so happy it is warmer. To the Northerners reading this, Winter is coming. You all at least get some snow while all we do in SA is get cold. I can’t wait for November, I am going to the coast (major dancing, partying and loafing will be involved, all on the beach)

What is happening quite soon:

I am doing the Colour Run in Johannesburg. It is my first time doing this and I really can’t wait.

I am up for a two week practical Chemistry class. That means two weeks of not dealing with work which is the best thing to happen since sliced cheese.

Speaking of South-Africa, here is a cute article about slang words South-Africans use.

Can people just not be such asshats?

I have this huge confession that I LOVE Kate and William. They are so sweet, and I don’t care if feminists think that she should do more with her life than pop out babies. Some women want that, just FYI, and it is their free choice to make. Anyway, I am super excited that they are having their next baby! So everyone who is moaning about the British money being wasted or whatever bug you have up your ass, just be happy for once that a couple is happy.

Another case of sever ass-ism are the people who left two Labrador puppies in a dustbin. My sister will now adopt one and the brother will go to another safe place. This is not the place to mention what I will do to the people that did that, but let’s just say for now I hope they end up in a dustbin without food or water. Would seem like justice.

Movies watched recently

Not a whole lot, but I saw One for the Money Friday night while drinking wine with my sister (the wine couldn’t even save that plot) and I saw Lucy in cinema Saturday. I also saw THAT was epic and I had such a good time with it, so keep an eye out for the post!

I am busy reviewing some Marvel films for my Marvellous Monday Blogathon. The table with available movies to watch is updated every Monday as the instalment post is posted, so hop over and takes a look.

Reading List:

To finish:

A Faint, Cold Fear – Karin Slaughter

Angel’s Fall – Nora Roberts. Yep, I am actually re-reading this for the gazillionth time.

To begin:

Dead as a Doornail – Charlaine Harris

A Game of Thrones – George R.R Martin

Series

After finishing the glorious Sherlock, I haven’t watched anything new. I was playing around with Vampire Diaries season three as part of my plan to catch up with all of it, but I am still not finished. I am going to start True Blood soon, with some light-hearted New Girl in-between because I just love that ridiculous show.

A hot guy, because I can

Taylor-Kinney-37

And this one that Zoë sent me. Because we understand that so well
