Hello! It’s minus 8 degrees (F) here and luckily I had the day off for MLK Jr Day, because the roads are RIDICULOUSLY bad after all the snow and ice yesterday. Hopefully they’ll be better tomorrow, because my commute will be awful.

And I only live a 10 minute drive from work, so people who have a REAL commute will have it much worse.

Also I got a cortisone shot in my left knee today! Wheeeeeeee! I know how to have fun on my day off, don’t I? I’m currently icing and elevating it, and hopefully all will be better soon.

I did a lot of reading over the long weekend — I’m currently in the middle of GRRM’s Fire and Blood, or as I like to call it, “Ugh, Targs.” It’s a bit of a slog. For every Targaryen woman I’m enjoying learning about, at least ten die in childbirth, or are married off at age 11, or are sexually abused/raped/imperiled in one way or another. And FYI, fuck Jaehaerys, “greatest Targaryen king ever” my fat ass. All the male Targs should have been set on fire (happily, many of them were!). I think I might have to put the book on hold for a while.

How’s everyone else doing, DW?

Is that written like a history book, or like a novel? I'm not big on the history book style.

It sounds depressing. Can't women just ride some goddamn dragons sometimes without getting raped?

That'll be a skip. Maybe there'll be some fanfic I'd enjoy. It sounds like this is a goldmine for "What was it like from her POV?" and "But what REALLY happened?"

It’s written like a history book, which I normally like, but this has a writer/narrator who is fully invested in the extreme in-universe misogyny, and a perv to boot!

That's definitely a decision you could have made to write this book from, yeah.

You deserve something nice and soothing after this.

or as I like to call it, “Ugh, Targs.”

Omg, it's perfect.

I spent my class sassing a disrespectful jerk and actually got thanked by another classmate???

I thought that only happened in tumblr stories.
