"So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All you have to decide is what to do with the time given to you." - Gandalf

Yep. Today was the annual celebration of the day I came crying into the world. Birthdays haven't really meant much the last few years. Nothing really happens. No family gatherings, no cake, and the occasional card. I must be getting old. Especially when conversations like having kidney stones, health insurance, and earning potential keep on cropping up. Most of the types of conversations can be contributed to my homies of my local Beard Group.
What is a Beard Group you ask? Well its a group of guys that I hang out with. And, well, we all have beards. And its great. We glorify the beard. With random websites like The Yeah, the Beard Group is that awesome and kind of a big deal. At least I think so.
The group has changed over the last year or so. In its earliest conception, it was Poker Night, and there was the occasional woman. And it has slowly evolved into playing all types of board games soaked in an atmosphere of testosterone.

"Winter is Coming" - Stark family saying

As many of my friends know (or they should if they pay any attention to me), Im really excited for the HBO series of A Game of Thrones, based on the fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin. Its one of the best Fantasy trilogies that Ive read in recent years. The world feels... old. And Martin does a great job in describing the world. And its so brutal! Main characters seem to die more often than not, and this seems to differ from a lot of authors Ive read. They seem to shy away from killing off the main stars of the book. I love it and I would recommend it to anyone. Go here for the Trailer for the HBO Series
Its kind of weird that Ive been posting Blogs for almost 2 years now. It hasn't seemed that long to me. Time is known to fly like that sometimes. Ill try to do a post something on the 2nd anniversary when it comes up. Cant really promise anything though.
I find it kind of odd and funny that when i don't post for a great period of time, people get after me to put something up. I find this really ironic when it comes from people that don't Blog for some reason. 'Cause they don't hold themselves to the same standard they hold me. It kind of makes me irritated and not want to put anything up when they bug me about it. I blog when I want to and when something comes to me, not when the masses demand it. Just saying. Sorry for the rant, but there it is.
