I took Friday OFF. The Kickstarter ended at 4 PM on Thursday, and I sort of flopped on the floor and drooled on myself for a while. I didn't push myself on Friday in the slightest. I didn't update anything, answered a few emails and messages if I felt like it, went to the park and sat in the sun doing nothing while Guppy played with her friend, and read some fun things. I even got a babysitter, and Jake and went out to see a movie and have dinner.

We saw 10 Cloverfield Lane, which was WONDERFUL. I really enjoyed it. It was creepy as all get out, kept the twists coming, I found the end very satisfying, and John Goodman scares the hell out of me. We came home, put Guppy to bed, and watched two episodes of Game of Thrones.

I was super reluctant to start this series - I read the first book and was thoroughly unimpressed: I didn't like any characters, and found it too scattered and dragging. The HBO series, despite my desire NOT to like it, has thoroughly hooked me. We're a few episodes into season 2.

Today was a very rewarding day - we worked on clearing out the connex box, and got rid of several boxes and bags of things (some straight to the trash, more for the transfer [reuse] station), cleared up more room, assembled some chairs and a table for Guppy's room, and moved a filing cabinet into the garage. It took several hours, and I may have hurt my back, but the connex box is SIGNIFICANTLY more useable, Guppy has a table to use in her room, the filing cabinet will be more useful where it is, and we can begin to tackle the basement in preparation for the many, many boxes of coloring books I will be getting soon!

This, I should add, is on top of the entire car load of things I donated to a preschool rummage sale last week, and a trip to the trash last weekend, too. It is astonishing how much STUFF you collect, and how easy it is to hold on to things you don't need. It has been a hard purge at times, but the result is SO lovely and refreshing.

I'm going to go watch Batman now, and eat tasty burritos.

GoT is really getting more and more horrible. I often have to look away.

Ha! Yeah, I didn't want to watch GoT. Not that I'd read any of the books, but feed-back from friends who had made me feel very meh about it.

Of course C, knowing how much I love fantasy, conviced me that we should give it a try, and now it's my favourite series.

I need to watch 10 Cloverfield Lane.

I read the GoT books before I started the TV series. I *LOVE* they books but I consider them more of a horror story than a fantasy.. Well, it is about war... and many parts really made my stomach turn. I had to keep reminding myself 'It's a story, not a Bible!'

I like the show, too, of course. Sandor is my favorite, but I just adore Tyrion, Daenerys, Brienne, and Arya.
