    I thought Snowville and Jeni’s had a strong partnership? I can understand Jeni’s growth requiring more, perhaps more than Snowville alone could provide. I’m just surprised to hear that Snowville isn’t one of their suppliers anymore.

    That looks like a fun project. I would probably use it to take pictures of my kids weird lego creations!

    I’ve been to the Gahanna location. They draw a big crowd. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. I went with the Juggernaut which is chicken and waffles variant in breakfast sandwich form. I ate they whoooole thing.

    I love this place.

    I’ve never played any Assassin’s Creed before so I just started the first game. I think I like this open world back-stabby business. Once I got the Counterattack ability, I seem to be doing much better. It is weird how you can kill folks and the guard next to him just looks around saying, “Who did this!!?!?” Then you get him too! And as long as your tiptoeing, it’s alright!

    I walk around looking for all those hidden flags and stab guys. Good times. Plus you can ride a horse.

    Which game in this series is the best?

    GoT is always pretty good but these occasional balls to the wall episodes have been amazing. Lots of characters get their moments in the spotlight.

    Sam really steps it up. Good to see him in the action as Sam the Slayer instead of Sam the Coward. Great dialogue from him.

    Ser Alliser Thorne gets to be slightly less of a douche canoe and show why he trains the men of the Night’s Watch.

    Ygritte gets to say “You know nothing Jon Snow” one last time. I go back and forth with her. I liked the free spirit side of her, but loathed the bloodlust. Romance gone bad. Real bad.

    The Giants. The Mammoth. The Arrow!

    Tormund gets to go full bad ass wildling. I like the Night’s Watch but this guy is just awesome.

    I loved seeing Ghost make an appearance but they really need to do more with him, and the dire wolves in general.

    This was a good episode, and it could be building up to an incredible season finale, but the scale of things just didn’t come across. It felt like there was dozens of people there. Not the thousands that everyone had described. We will see. Mance Rayder isn’t at the front lines yet.

    I recently rewatched the Blackwater episode of Season 2 and thought that was better overall.

    The guy they picked to act as Gregor Clegane is huge but he just doesn’t have that continually enraged and mad dog look that the first actor had. Even after hacking up all those fodder prisoner dummies, he still seems like a half decent guy! This a fellow of legendary brutality, in a story where everyone is pretty fucking brutal. Smashed baby heads, rape, smash more heads, and on and on. Now he just looks like a big dufus?!

    The first guy, he had it.

    This one doesn’t.

    I can’t say I’ve missed coke much at all. Whenever I have one it tastes way too sweet and leave my throat feeling coated in slime afterwards. I guess I’m officially old now.

    I feel the same way. I gave up soft drinks too. Every once in a while I get a craving for some Classic Coke but I only end up drinking one or two sips before I’ve had enough. When your not having it regularly, it really can be overwhelming.

    Yes, we are old. :)

    Congratulations!

    Every baby and situation is different. So what works for one, may not work for another. Explore your options and be flexible. With regards to movies, dinners, and other activities, you won’t know what you can get away with until you try.

    We’ve had a bunch of strollers. My favorite and most useful being the Bob Revolution CE. My stroller masters boardwalk and quagmire with aplomb!

    What’s the good reason? Seemed to me like the books have a lot of stuff going on that you could compress into a more succinct story without adding stuff that didn’t happen.

    Don’t get me wrong I like some of the tweaks they’ve made, for example, Daenerys inciting a slave revolt to take over Mareen instead of going in through the sewers was pretty neat, but the end result was still consistent with what happened.

    The good reason is that there isn’t enough written material to carry the show much further and have it be as exciting as it has been.

    We use a drop-in daycare like the concept you describe. The rates are $6 per hour for the first child, and $4 additional for the next.

    I’m happy with the deviations. It is inevitable that the books and TV series will diverge more and more, and for good reason.

    I’m most interested to see how the situation at Craster’s Keep plays out and more lore of the North get developed.

    That was some great whodunnit film work!

    I think Tywin has only one facial expression.
