I’ve started watching Game of Thrones. I’m a little late to the “fold” but better late than never. After the first three episodes I didn’t know if I could get through it. An awful lot of chopping of heads and spearing eyeballs and what not – but the more I watch the more I see there is more to it than that and I’m starting to get sucked into the story. I’m only up to episode 8 of Season 1. If it wasn’t past 2 am when I was done with 8 I might have finished the first season. However, now I have something to do today. I’m not sure how I feel about being desensitized enough to watch it. Could Game of Thrones be the downfall of our society? If so I want to be on board! I’ll go down with the ship.
I have to watch Game of Thrones because the rest of my shows are over. I finished Bloodline. And as you know I’ve been watching The Americans. So get this….I finish with Season 3 – like really good ending and curl up last night for Season 4 and now all the sudden Amazon Prime wants me to PAY for Season 4. WTF? I mean seriously WTF? It’s a dirty nasty trick on their part and I’m half tempted to yank my membership. But instead I will probably just wait and pay the fee after I get a job. I tried to watch the finale of Outlander. Now that’s been postponed for another week too. So that left me with the only alternative Game of Thrones.
I seem to be a semi creature of habit these days. I don’t sleep much at night which just started recently, so therefore I don’t get up until the morning is pretty much over, I check emails and stuff, apply for jobs, write or blog but that TV rarely if ever comes on before 8 pm. There is absolutely nothing on in the summer time which is why I’m watching these other shows. It’s a job in itself to figure out what to watch and then pace it out to get me through the nights.
I was able to walk yesterday. I put on tennis shoes which helped immensely and so I went for a walk with my neighbor. Today, it hurts, with and without tennis shoes. Since it’s a holiday I might break my routine and curl up and watch a couple Games of Thrones now.
Wait a minute... I wonder, I just wonder, if the way I sit watching these TV shows has either caused this pain or at the very least is aggravating it. See? This is why I write. So I can figure things out. It makes sense that it could be the way I’m sitting on that 2 seater chair. I shall turn the chair and try sitting a different way. I lead such an exciting life!
Thanks for helping me figure this out. And with that I shall say Happy 4th of July to those far and near and…Go America.
