I took a little screenshot of my email this morning.
Somebody on the Home Depot marketing team is a fan of George R.R. Martin, and this warms my heart more than a little. Nerds are everywhere, people!!!
This is of course, a little different from The Oatmeal / Matthew Inman’s take on the subject.
Also, if you have two middle initials, you can officially go by them as a last name. I fondly refer to George R. R. Martin as “George R. R.,” as well as J.R.R Tolkein as “J. R. R.” Too complicated to type or say, really.
Lastly, after I finished book 4 of A Song of Ice and Fire, I wanted a meteor to hit the planet. Rocks fall; everybody dies. Seriously. I think I threw the fifth book across the room in frustration. Maybe it was the Kindle. Maybe it was why the kindle broke. Or LG stepped on it, either way.
