I didn’t see the beginning of series 6 of Game of Thrones, although I’m sure it’s on some channel here because a lot of my students watched it. They were polite enough to ask if I actually wanted spoilers before they spilled the beans. RIP, Hodor. I never really knew ya.
Really. I know the series only through the books, and I’ve never seen more than 10 minutes of it on TV. That’s probably something I should remedy, but it means my view of certain characters is different from those who’ve primarily got their view from TV. You must admit, Hodor did not have a lot of great dialogue.
But, he was one of the very few characters in the book who were totally, uncomplicatedly, good, and I guess that’s the same on TV.
It was a pretty uncomplicated day. This evening we had Robby Bubble (children’s champagne0 with dinner. It’s essentially a sparkling apple juice but the plastic cork pops off and hits the ceiling and we get the fancy glasses out and clink glasses and make a toast, and we were celebrating Isabel’s last visit to the speech therapist.
