A moose once bit my sister...

I've just discovered that the Theon Greyjoy chapters in A Clash of Kings are way more fun if you read them with a Swedish or Norwegian accent, the culture of the Iron Islands from which Theon hails being so obviously based on Viking civilization.

"Dagmer Cleftjaw stood by der high carved prow of his longship, Foamdrinker.  Theon had assigned him der task of guarding der ships; uddervise men vould have called it Dagmer's victory, not his.  A more prickly man might have taken dat fer a slight, but der Cleftjaw had only laughed."

...I learned it by watching Monty Python, ok???  Go on, say the word "Foamdrinker" with a Swedish accent and see if you don't crack up.  I DARE you.

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not post a comment. I have blogs also obviously, and would like to invite you to become my blog friend.

I mostly post about the California experience through the perspective of personal writings, and my art.

Maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

Well I hope to hear from you soon… :)
