The Move....Again.

"....Once more unto the Breach dear friends...." -Shakespeare

Well it is that time of my life again, where I must pick up my belongings and move once more; ever the wanderer I have become. Hopefully though with this latest move, that will soon be a long ere played song. Tomorrow I begin my descent into one of the last parts of getting back on top of life. Out of my sister and brother in-law's basement, and into my own place; what a wonderful feeling that is, although furnishing it is going to be a pain in the neck. I just have to get through tomorrow and then the next couple of days, and then I'll be set, at least that is the plan. Yesterday was an extremely long day at work, and today was busy right from the get go, up until I left work, and yet I didn't get everything accomplished that I wanted to. It's irritating, but I believe that I am staying on top of everything, which is an improvement over the last month when everything crept up on me all of a sudden. Last night watched a documentary called Hitler's Children and I have to admit that it was quite interesting. Children and grandchildren of former high ranking Nazis were interviewed about their thoughts on their family members, and how it affected them. One was a grandchild of Heinrich Himmler, a great niece of Hermann Goering, a daughter of Amon Goeth, a son of Hans Frank, and a grandchild of Rudolph Hoess. It was definitely something to see these people talk about how they were treated because of their name, the guilt and shame that they felt due to their family members' previous actions, and how they were to proceed in life. Certainly a fascinating set of stories, and if you enjoy documentaries and history then I highly suggest you watch it. So I was in for a shock when I watched episode 9 of season 3 of Game of Thrones tonight. Apparently, according to my sister and brother in-law, everyone has been yacking their blabbering heads about it on Facebook, but since I don't really spend that much time on that site, I was walking in completely blind to the episode. Wow, is all I have to say. That and George R. Martin may have created a heck of an interesting and awesome world, and also have written compelling characters, but his story lines are bleak and hopeless. As a matter of fact nothing really hopeful has happened since the show began; nothing but bad things have happened to good people, and good things to really evil people. I don't like the show, but I really want to see how it finishes up, and then I'll be completely done with it. Actually, there is only one story line that has been getting increasingly positive, and only one; the Mother of Dragons. Well there's my take on the show, and with only one episode remaining of the season, I think its too much to hope for that Tywin Lanniser or Joffrey die. Well, much to do. So goodnight and good luck.
