sadness and silliness

How was your weekend?
My Saturday was great. I didn’t leave the house. Read a ton, made yummy dinner, watched a few episodes of Parks and Recreation. My friend Kristin sent me a copy of The Death House by Sarah Pinborough, which I devoured. I read a little further in Ian Tregillis’s The Coldest War and realized I’ve mostly been reading this late at night while half asleep and I really haven’t absorbed anything, so I need to just start the book from scratch. We had fantastic Spanish Meatballs and Twice Baked Potatoes for dinner.
I need something happy/silly as some kind of counterbalance. I needed something that doesn’t involve me eating an entire box of thin mints. (which would actually be the happiest worse food decision ever). humor to the rescue. and a few thin mints never hurt anyone.
I like me some Game of Thrones
I like the show Chopped on Food Network
Combine the two? Sure! why not!
the contestants would be Jon Snow, Daenerys, and Tywin, and the judges would be Hodor, Ygritte and Tyrion. Littlefinger could EmCee and introduce everyone.
Jon Snow doesn’t know how to cook worth shit, and Ygritte’s response to everything he presents is “You know nothing, Jon Snow”. Tyrion takes every opportunity to snark on his dad, with Tywin getting increasingly frustrated that the name of the show has nothing to do with chopping people’s heads off. Daenerys presents a dish that is basically coddled horse blood served in a hollowed out horse heart, and Tyrion suddenly stops trying to pick her up. Hodor loves every dish he tastes, and turns out he is a rather educated and loquacious foodie, often responding with “Hodor, hodor hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor. Hodor hodor hodor . . . . hodor hodor hodor, hodor hodor . . . . hodor hodor ”.
How is this not already a meme?
Also? I finished Hounded by Kevin Hearne, and it was flippin’ fantastic. Why didn’t you guys let me read this book, like, years ago?
