Running a bit behind, but I managed to get my Secret Santa gift out in the mail!

Hope he enjoys it (and the awesome ugly wrapping paper too)!   ;)

Hope you enjoy your stay...


...and Mike Matheny signed a 3-year deal w/ the Giants.

Which means A.J. Pierzynski is probably going to be traded since you don't need two AS caliber Catchers.† I don't think they would have signed Matheny unless they already had a deal in the works for AJ.

I wonder where he'll end up?† †:-\


I was reading that this series will be seven volumes long.

The story I read was that at first, it was to be 6 books, with the first 3 books making up one trilogy, then the next 3 finishing off the story with a second trilogy.† However, while writing book 4, it was leaked that about 5-10 years take place between the two trilogies.

There was such an outcry from fans, that George RR Martin decided to stop where he was in book 4 in order to go back and write book 3.5 (A Feast for Crows) to fill in the time gap between the two, thus adding a seventh book.  Apparently, this is why it has taken so long to get the fourth book (part 3.5) done.

Does that match up to what you've read/heard?  That's the problem with the internet, you can never be sure what you read at a fan-site is true or not...  :-\

I'll say:

Anakin Skywalker
Darth Vader

Trust me, you will be so sick of Vader action figures when this is all over.

We are already getting Anakin and Vader both in Collection 1, then versions in Collection 2, then Deluxe versions, the Vader w/Meditation Chamber, then 12" Figures, then Jedi Battle figures, the Attacktix, then, etc, etc, etc.

He'll be on the packaging, on the in-store signage, on the boxes, EVERYwhere.† I won't be surprised when cases start shipping with 3x Anakin, 3x Vader, and 6 other figures.

When June 2005 rolls around, there will be Vader in amounts the likes of which God himself has never seen.† :-\

Congrats, Rob.

It was a well-battled season, but at least I made the playoffs and lost to the guy who's going to win it all...† ;)

As for Kobe's tiff with the Mailman, eh, I think it's been blown out of proportion.† I thought his comments weren't that outta line.† He was just sticking up for his teammates, especially the couple guys who would be in danger of losing their roster spot if Malone came back.† He didn't rip Malone or anything dumb like that.† Karl's just being a baby right now.

Kobe 'upset' about Malone's comments to wife


Good Grief, can things get any stupider in the NBA right now?†

It's only December but I'm already sick of the NBA - the fighting, the petty bickering amongst "teammates" (Wolves or LAkers or anyone).

I wish the NHL were back... at least they take their fights out into the open instead of using the newspapers or the fans to abuse.† :-\


OK, so this weekend I finished the first book.

Let's just say that after 800 pages there were still a few surprises left in the book at the end.† Didn't quite turn out like I was expecting, and that was a good thing.

I'm now about 3 chapters into the 2nd book, A Clash of Kings and desperately cheering against the Lannisters.


The Twins are not pushovers by any means, but they also played in the weakest division in the AL and have done a good job of being better than everyone in said division.† They definitely are not a championship caliber team though and the LA Times reported this morning that Corey Koskie is close to accepting a deal with the Blue Jays.† That only hurts the Twins.

Looks like Koskie has basically accepted a deal with the Jays, pending a physical....

Blue Jays reach terms with Koskie

Hmmm... I am starting to get a bit worried, as the Twins infield defense was one of their strongest points.† Now, with Doug Mientkiewicz no longer at 1B, Guzman gone from SS, and Koskie gone from 3B, our outstanding infield defense is average at best.† †:-\

So, were you ALL of those guys that were acting crazy (anewman, evilsith, MrSparkie, yodaboi) or were you just anewman and the rest were actually other people acting crazy?

That's it.† I'm done caring about the NFL for the year.

I may watch the Vikes/GB game on Christmas Eve if I have a chance, but no more...

Stupid Vikings.† >:(


OK, so I decided that we need a separate thread for this series.† If it turns out that only Scott and I ever post in this thread, so be it.† †:P

So, I am now about 660 pages into Book 1, A Game of Thrones, which I picked up thanks to a recommendation by Scott in the JD Book Club.† It is a fantastic book and I thank Scott for his suggestion.†

There are many similarities between the story so far and the historical War of the Roses (history, NOT the crappy 80s movie ::)).† I cannot believe how I was quickly sucked into the story and the world of the Seven Kingdoms.


Man, so a lot of people that I thought would be major players in this series start dropping off!† There is a lot of set-up only to surprise you by someone unexpected croaking off!† †:(† Already a few of the characters I had grown to really like have been cast aside.† †>:(† Of course, the beauty of the book is that each passing gives specific motivation to the rest of the cast to play out their roles.

OK, I won't say any more until I am finished with the book, although I am interested to see what will happen with Drogo and his khaleesi as they prepare to sail west.† Should be interesting when the Dragon meets the Lion and the Wolf and the Rest...

My goal is to finish book 1 before I head out for Portland (Christmas Travel) so that I can start book 2, A Clash of Kings on my plane ride west!

So, anyone else heard of or read any of the books in this series?† Played the CCG?† Read any of the Anthology short stories or Graphic Novels?
