Blogging Month Day 27: Term Plans, Terrible Hoaxes, Thrones and To Be Read Lists

Filed under: Books, movies, TV, YouTube — liberrydwarf @ 9:26 am

Eek! Blog quickly, blog quickly! It’s still Day 27 (i.e. 27 June) somewhere in the world, right?

1) One Good Thing: yesterday I sat down with the other guy who leads my Scout Troop with me, and we planned the whole term out. It wasn’t a burdensome task, and between puppet-shows, airport visits and Master Chef night, it’s going to be a super-fun term!

2) One Bad Thing: I log on Twitter this morning, see “Edward Scissorhands” is a trending topic. I click, because hey, ES is one of my favourite films of all time. I see tweet upon tweet about Robert Pattinson being Edward Scissorhands in a remake! Turns out it was just a hoax, thankfully, but the taste of nausea is still in my mouth, and the cardiac damage I’ve sustained from sickening heart-drops-to-pit-of-stomach is probably irreperable 🙂

3) One Thing I Learned: from Kalafudra, who I now absolutely adore – A Game of Thrones is coming to HBO, at long last! With Sean Bean! And Jason Momoa! I have died and gone to heaven! (I think I will totally be throwing my morals out the window and watching this online, I cannot possibly wait til 2012 for it to come out here!)

4) Today’s Link: what, you haven’t got enough YouTube goodness already from the above? Well I guess I’ll pop in something bookish then: the 2010 Locus Awards were on over the weekend, and the list of winners is now available. (Locus = Science Fiction, for those not in the know.)  Off to inflate the wishlist again!



  1. Strangely enough, I had the same reaction to the Robert Pattinson as Edward Scissorhands hoax as you. I mean how can you improve on the perfection that is JD’s performance?

    • Last word is it’s due in the US in July, I think. At this stage anyway.
