Oh wait. I don't really do things in my free time. Outside of binge-watching shows while cuddling with my pets. I'd say that I need to rectify that, but I don't really believe that's the case. My life may not be the most exciting life these days, but you know, I kinda like it ;)
One thing I've come to grips with is my lack of interest in cosplay. It's still there, but it's nothing like it used to be. I had fun with my Ice & Fire Con "costumes" and only one of them was a new, full-on cosplay (in my own opinion)...

Anyway, although I've slacked hardcore on my ASOIAF re-read, I've been posting plenty about Game of Thrones...just over at The Geekiary rather than here ;) I preempted season 5 with some thoughts about what might happen going forward in my Game of Thrones Season 5 vs. A Song of Ice & Fire: Round One article...but I was in no way prepared for some of the decisions they've made. Decisions that have led to several discussions over at The Geekiary - first a roundtable, Game of Thrones Season 5 Changes and Developments: Cringe- or Praise-Worthy?, followed by Round Two of my Game of Thrones Season 5 vs. A Song of Ice & Fire series, which was of course posted after the show hit its halfway point.
And then A Thing Happened to Sansa. And there's no reason for me to get into it here, really, because I've gone on and on about it elsewhere - both in my review of The Episode In Which The Thing Happened and my review of the episode after that, and then yet again with Angel in our combo article "Seven Faces of Sansa Rape Apologists". And it all culminated in last night's episode of FEELINGS...with The Geekiary, where Erin, Von, and myself ranted not just about Sansa but about how May was a bad month in general for feminists...
...however, I also talked about how awesome Ice & Fire Con was in said webcast, so it's not a total wash of negativity ;)
That's about it for now, but hey, I'll say the thing I always say...that being, I hope to soon be back to posting in this blog on at least a somewhat regular basis (Monday Confessions don't count, and I've missed the past two Mondays anyway, haha). Keep your fingers crossed for me, mmkay? :)
