Favourite obsessions

Game of Thrones is on tonight. Not that I can see it tonight. I'll have to wait until tomorrow which means that I'll watch it after work.
Sorry for the GoT posts but it's my favourite pastime as none of my plans are going as well as I hoped.
What's happening in my life? Not much.
I've tried watching some new tv shows to keep my mind off things. Luther, Jericho and The Dresden Files are those I will want to keep watching (Dresden mostly because I've read some of the books - entertaining but not amazing). The others I've simply forgotten all about after watching some tedious pilot which didn't catch my attention at all. 
I've also tried out a new piercing. This time: nasal septum. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it would and as I look back at the last four weeks of healing it feels good. Now, not only do I have short hair and a certain love for hats, shiny shoes and plaid shirts but also a facial piercing. I'm so hipster it hurts. Dammit. Too bad I can't grow a moustache to go with my incredible glasses.
On the other hand, I've miscalculated the amount of fabric I would need for a dress I was making for The Medieval Week which means that I don't have enough to actually finish it which sucks. Balls.
Tonight someone stole my booked laundry time and I didn't even have the energy to fight so I just gave up and went for a walk. Not like me in the least.

I live for my own cooking - I'm an excellent chef but have also realised that enjoying food is so much easier when I'm treating someone else to dinner.

We Do Not Sow

Oh dear Lord, after last night's episode of Game of Thrones I'm having all these Theon Greyjoy feels and nowhere to put them. Poor, poor little Theon.

Peter Hollens' voice

Peter Hollens is one of those freakishly talented men that shows up a little now and then on my feed on Tumblr and/or Facebook whenever he's made a new song. Thus was the case when he did some of his a capella magic based on Skyrim (xx), Game of Thrones and The Hobbit but I think my favourite so far is his original song Sleepwalking. Enjoy.

Ok. I give in. This one is awesome too.

Have I mentioned how much I love Game of Thrones? I haven't? I should. God damn... Season three was worth the wait. I'm so in love with this show. It's magic. The books too. They're fantastic.
