By the way I've started a Game of Thrones fantasy league. Join up before drafting on Sunday.

Join here: ;

 I suggest turning on autodraft in Settings > Draft Rankings. Your characters get points for being awesome, getting naked, or drinking (among other actions).

Game of Thrones isn't a soap opera but certain pairings have undeniable chemistry and/or plot potential. Here are some ships I hope will sail next season.

Spoilers ahoy!

2016.06.21 00:10 - The mother of deja vus
Last night, I woke up at 3:50 because some fucksticks were skateboarding outside on the street. I peeled a fuzzy wolf blanket off a pink woven throw in the closet because it was cold. The blanket sparked in the darkness and I smelled ozone.

This triggered memories of my brother and I rubbing our heads into a cheap polyester fleece and pulling it away to watch the air light up and crackle under the sheets. We were probably about 10.

Anyways I thought this was worth noting because while I do get a feel of deja vu a lot - I've never gotten deja vu so vividly from an event so long ago.


Last night's episode of Game of Thrones was nearly unwatchable. I don't mean it in either a good or a bad way, but in a I am going to shit myself in anxiety kind of way. It'll win a bunch of awards at the Emmys. Sansa is still a bit of a wet blanket. Whatever. My favourite location all season has been the clusterfuck down at King's Landing and I am looking forward to watching that pile of gold-plated hemmorhoids go down next Sunday.


I wasted a few hours trying to do Python and just. It's clearly meant for Linux, I can't even figure out how to run a script with arguments in Windows, either in the command line or with the IDE. I'm gonna end up doing my thesis with Excel and Visual Basic. But it would build so much character if I learned to use Python... Fuck my life and the horse it rode in on.


Then I burped in James' mouth by accident. He laughed but I was so embarassed. Usually I do that on purpose.


The consensus is that I might have difficulty running CERTAIN GAMES with a GTX 465, but since that costs me literally nothing (spare parts) I might as well use that now and upgrade later. The rest of the budget is going to an SSD and... ???     TBD.

I am so tired of getting blue balled by Game of Thrones.  


Last night I dreamed about geocaching in Nunavut. There was a building built on the ice, and I broke the ice, and it sank into the lake, but before it sank, I salvaged as much of Paul's rope as I could. Then I requested the cache archived. A very, very fuzzy cat popped out of a birdhouse. There was a massive multi-vehicle collision. I drove a red pickup truck southeast to rescue Sweet Boy from something. Of course the truck was red.


I switched back to my old mouse because my other mouse was not right-clicking properly.

I finished KOTOR2 this weekend. More detailed reactions forthcoming.

Game of Thrones season 6 also aired yesterday. Things are happening! In fact I had a dream I was Theon. Scarlett Johansson was giving me a blood transplant.


The montage of sadness from 6:42 to 7:00 - it feels infinitely familiar, but where does it come from???

  Today I did my first (bronze) solo! I played a Geth Engineer specced for flamethrower and chain overload, against Geth on the FB Giant map, and the only consumable I used was a ops survival pack. Then I followed it up with a Drell Infiltrator.

The North will remember, she thought, and they’ll have all your skins.

And the timbers groaned
Now the wolves lie below
Oh, the King in the North, if he’d known
How a red wedding goes

And the timbers groan
But the North waits; they know
That one day the blood they ared owed
Will run ‘neath their soles

Relevant QC.

Real smart.

We had the talk about "where do you see this going" and, well, 50 points to Hufflepuff because he brought it up first. And I hope that I'm not rebounding, and that it's not just because he spent a load of time being single. But that doesn't really matter, because the answer was "nowhere."
