Game Of Thrones Cat, a.k.a. My Favorite YouTube Video

I present to you a gorgeous Siamese cat meowing the Game of Thrones theme song. About a year ago, I randomly ran across this video, and promptly fell in love. When I’m in a down mood (like today, when it’s FREEZING in my office – seriously, I’m wearing a scarf), I tune in to watch sassy Arya “sing” one of my favorite TV tunes, and realize that life is pretty awesome 🙂

Just Dropping In To Say…

Times Square Musical Billboards by Anna Harris

This weekend on Broadway…

Hi everybody! Sorry for the radio silence, but I was gone for the weekend. Had a great (albeit short) little vacation to New York City, and spent three and a half days doing some intense sight seeing. I walked between 8 and 11 miles each day, got way too much sun, and had a ton of fun visiting the Empire State Building, Central Park, The Met, The Cloisters, Times Square, Madame Tussaud’s, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, South Street Seaport, and other stuff I know I’m forgetting right now.

Just wanted to drop in to let you know that I really appreciate all of the new likes, comments and follows – thanks so much for your support and the lovely responses to my tiny short story last week. I’ll be back in business here on Compass & Quill very soon, and posting my origami entries for The 30 Days Challenge (I’m behind, but a few pieces a day should help me catch up again).

Tonight I made a couple of new pieces, including a really cute modular wreath. I also watched the last three episodes of Game of Thrones; gotta admit that I was disappointed in the last episode. No spoilers, of course, but from everyone else’s non-spoiler comments about the episode, I expected something much more outrageous (or at least interesting) to happen. I’m a huge Brienne of Tarth fan, though, so any episode without her is lackluster, imo. At least Arya Stark made an appearance – she makes my GoT experience much more bearable on the less than great episodes.

It’s time to catch some shuteye, but I promise to have some vacation and origami photos up tomorrow. Night folks!
