I Think....I Need

I didn't want to exit off of my Pinterest account last night.

My husband made me!

"Oh, as if 3,700 pins on your Game of Thrones board isn't enough," he went on to say.

EXCUSE ME! THAT is NOT the point!

Yes, I'm a wee bit kerfluffled. I like going on Pinterest. Just in case anyone else was wondering, I also have other boards, some educational and some just for fun, that I occasionally pin something to.

I reluctantly logged off and let him have the PC.

Maybe I need help.

Or maybe I *need* someone to buy me Game of Thrones stuff. LOTS of it, too!

Yes, I guess I should, from time to time, slow down on my GoT obsession.

But "not today."


2000 Strong

I've reached over 2000 pins on my Pinterest "A Song of Ice & Fire: A Game of Thrones" board.

My husband thinks it's amusing.

I think I need full time employment.

I think it's safe to say, this has become an obssession. LOL!

What to do Now That A Clash of Kings is Over

Author: Anonymous / Labels: , , , , , ,

Hi there. I'm trying to figure out how I can enhance my "Winds of Westeros" blog. So far, I have added a Feedjit Live Feed to it. I like to see where people visit from. Always nice to know that people from all over check out my humble little blog. As well, I will take more pictures (when the occasion calls for it) and will post more images (of course I do not own them and will make the disclaimer known) as they appear.

Now that we all have to wait another 10 months until the premiere of "Game of Thrones: A Storm of Swords," I was thinking of all the things I'd like to post about. Here is what I came up with so far:

*drum roll please*

Various posts about each respective House in Westeros, according to what I have read and how I feel;
Character posts;
Book signings and events;
My Game of Thrones PS-3 game, the various campaigns I go on and my progress;
A Song of Ice and Fire Book reviews;
Changes from books to screenplays;
The idea of who Jon Snow's parents could be and my theory behind it;
Comic Con dates;
My actors and actresses wish list for Season III;
My Pinterest board and its' progress;
Cakes that I order with a Game of Thrones theme (so far, my birthday cake this year was a purple cake with certain House sigils on it);
My views on the men in Westeros;
My views on women in Westeros;
If Trivial Pursuit responds back to my inquiry about a Game of Thrones limited edition board game
if George R R Martin ever responds back to some of my friendly e-mails.

Yes, I sent him some pictures and I also sent him the idea of the Trivial Pursuit game.

I feel that these ideas for my blog will keep me occupied for a while.

Happy reading to all!

Seeing as how I have a lot of free time on my hands (I'm an unemployed teacher who has been avidly looking for work the past year and a half while applying everywhere and volunteering where I could), I find that logging onto Pinterest is quite fun.

Except the fact that the rest of my boards are sadly neglected. They all have an average of 100 to 150 pins. Except "A Song of Ice & Fire: A Game of Thrones."

1573 pins isn't excessive. Right?!

Pinterest Phenomena

At present, I now have 1,086 pins on my Pinterest A Song of Ice and Fire: Game of Thrones board.

Yes, I love the books and the HBO show.  I also have quite the following, which I find is quite flattering and humbling. Lots of followers, lots of re-pins. NIIIIICE.

Yes, I Have a GoT Board on Pinterest

Like any devoted fan of Game of Thrones, you will find the novels in my house, stacked neatly on my bookshelf. Actually, truth be told, I have two sets of them. I have the large novels that were signed by George R R Martin himself and then I have another set, so if any friends or family members want to borrow them, they can.  I also have a lot of pictures from the book signing. I have the first graphic novel, too.

I'm going to purchase the drinking steins from Chapters. I have two copies of Rolling Stone Magazine - the one with Peter Dinklage on the cover - also included in the bookshelf.  I have the first season on Blu-Ray DVD and it'll only be a matter of time before I purchased the brand new PS3 Game of Thrones game.

Either I am a devoted fan or I have way too much time on my hands. I told my husband that whenever my birthday or Christmas rolls around, any gift that is Game of Thrones related is a good one to get. You won't go wrong in that department.

Alas, I digress (apologies for doing so). So, I'm on Facebook, Twitter and have this blog. I decided, about a month ago, to join Pinterest. I have about 9 boards. The one that I'm most proud of (of course!) is "A Song of Ice and Fire: Game of Thrones."  I have 304 pins to my credit. Before the day is through, there'll be at LEAST 25 more!

What can I say? I am in love with all things wonderful, wacky and whimsical....when it comes to A Song of Ice and Fire!
