Re: You know you're obsessed when.....

I have called my wife "my moon and stars," and she is none the wiser, having not read any of Martin's work.

One thing that is interesting to me is the cultural impact of his work. One subtle marker of popularity is the name of wireless networks. Five years ago, when I'd travel I would find secure private networks with names like Legolas_43 and Gandalf3. I was on the bus last week and ran across a "Braavos" and "Kingslayer".

I'm interested in trends in baby names, so I searched and found this: http://www.parents.com/blogs/in-name...rones-edition/

The writer of that blog has not read the books. Thus, she can post...

Shae... On the show, it’s the name of the prostitute who becomes the lover of Tyrion—and is probably one of the kindest characters in the land.
I'd like to tell her, "Life is not a song, sweetling. Someday you may learn that, to your sorrow."

You know you're obsessed when you look down your nose at TV only fans.

You find yourself admiring the courage of an author who would use a name so appalingly close to "******" rather than laughing at it.

Re: You know you're obsessed when.....

I knew I was obsessed when I got 'HODOR' stitched into the sides of my new NikeID shoes.

I rock the Hodor look.

Re: You know you're obsessed when.....

My best friend and I got matching shirts that read "Hodor" - Hodor. Never was there a more excellent quote. That's also when we realized we were hopelessly obsessed. Hodor has become our new "Hey, what's up?"

You know you're obsessed when you always come to this board first.

You know you're obsessed when...

Someone has the Initials A.A. and you immediately think they are the prince that was promised.

You're watching Batman Begins on TV and the kid who plays Joffrey in the HBO show has a minor role and you really hope he dies.
