So here I am in the Tampa airport. I’ve been here for 7 hours because our plane needs repairs. They’ve just announced that it could be another 3 hours and started offering up vouchers for overnight stays. We’re giving up and taking them up on it.
We flew down for my brother-in-law’s beach wedding and it was beautiful. I hadn’t met his new wife before but she seems like someone I’ll like a lot. I mostly managed to avoid getting sunburned but my face is tomato red. Except for the white raccoon eyes. Yes, I’m looking fabulous!
Anyway, I hope this hotel has HBO! We had carefully timed our flights so that we would be home for the premiere of A Game of Thrones on HBO. I gave my husband orders to get HBO about a year and a half ago so that I would be ready to watch this show. I don’t think they had even finished casting it at that point! I hate movie covers but my husband has had to put up with me snatching up the book with the new cover and exclaiming, “I’m so excited! It’s going to be so good!”
No, my hopes aren’t too high. Not at all.
I am super-excited and the few actors that I know already are going to be absolutely perfect in their roles. Boromir as Eddard Stark? Couldn’t pick a better actor!
If you haven’t read these books by George R. R. Martin, I highly recommend them. I’ve only read the first two but they both got an easy five stars, and if you’ve been around here much you know I don’t really give those out very lightly. They have a perfect epic scope for a fantastic tv series. At least check out the first episode tonight if you have HBO!
So what do you think? Are you going to watch tonight? Have you read the books? And what do you think of movie covers?
