  1. Congratulations Laurel! I read this yesterday and forgot to respond! Thank you for the nomination, I accept and expect my response soon! Have a great weekend! 🙂


  2. Hello again!! I emailed you about dragon queen!! A detailed explanation that sets it all straight. 😃 But perhaps you already made sense of it yourself. Oh well. 🌸🌷


    • I didn’t get it. I’ll check again.
      Oh…I forgot…last night the Zombies appeared…I was thinking…hmmm…might have just lost me…zombies? And the “fucks” and “c**ts”….I don’t think they used that sort of language back then!

      • Sent it to your… Gmail? I think. Just now.
        The “zombies” are an army of “undead”, / “wights”, which are created by the King’s of the undead. These kings are those who are referred to as “The white walkers” North of the Wall ( in the north). It is a great threat to the world and you will see more of those in the future. 😉 They will come and go though and not be a very regular thing, the story focuses more on the family feuds etc for the most part.

        I agree. In fact it is the only negative thing that I have to say about George Martins books, that he used modern cuss words, it doesn’t really fit in according to me either. But you do get used to it more and more, I think. I don’t think about it anymore. So busy drooling over my boy Snow. 😃💓


        • It may just be too “fantastical” for me…I have never liked movies that made you stretch your imagination…(maybe because I don’t have one.) LOL
          Lord of the Rings (which Loser took me to see one and I actually enjoyed it)but I would never watch the other ones…..and…Harry Potter? NEVER.

          • Ah, right, I see. But out of the now 50 or 60 episodes that have come out, those “zombies” as you call them 😁 only have an important role in a handful of episodes, as far as I can recall. So while a part of the story, they are not really seen that often on screen. 😊

            Lord of the rings is a literary masterpiece by JRR Tolkien (my idol), it is my dream to write a fantasy masterpiece like he did. 😁
            The 3 movies are great too. Glad you liked it/them. I agree about Harry Potter, it is more directed at children/teens though. 🙂


      • Haha don’t worry about it 😁 I actually have one more of those thingies I have to write for next week I think. So I am all “set up” for now, lol. I never take them for granted from anyone I am just happy whenever I get those. I never seem to tire of them. I know, some people do not answer when they get the award. I think it is not because they don’t care I just think they are real busy or something. (I hope) 😉
        Thanks for thinking of me with the sunshine thingie that was real nice! 💜
