I'm off to San Diego for the workshops with Kake McKinnon. There are still Sunday slots available. I'll be on an airplane all day, but contact Kake if you're interested, she'll hook you up.

Yesterday I saw on Twitter that the Throne from the new George RR Martin mini-series "Game of Thrones" was going to be at 30th Street Station (which is just a few blocks from my house). So Jared Axelrod and I walked down and got out pixtures taken sitting in it. Then I figured "I might as well go see the free premiere that they're showing at the local multiplex." So I went with yagathai and on the way in there was a drawing for a free iPad. I filled out the card (which was just one of those MY NAME IS things, they didn't even want my email address) and -- lo and behold, not only is George RR Martin responsible for this awesome photo of me in Sean Bean's chair, but now I have an iPad. yagathai said "you lead a charmed life." And I guess I can't dispute that.

Thanks everybody for helping make everything awesome. I hope to see some of you this weekend. Oh, and as an added bonus, if you show up in Balboa Park on Saturday in a ball gown, top hat or dressed as a pirate (your choice), I'll take your picture. In front of the Mingi, 1-3.

My plan for world domination involves kittens.

you also charm other people's lives; don't think we haven't noticed how much you do for other people (like me, for example)

The Iron Throne suits you. ;)

Kittens, huh? So you're like a grown-up Tommen? :D

Imagine all those swords as

kittehs..... miao!

Also, the right-left scrolling issue I experience isn't new ;-) your posts somehow end up wide, even without large images. Firefox 3.6.16 on ubuntu.

Re: Imagine all those swords as

Same scrolling issue here, Firefox 3.6.16 on Mac. It has always happened for me when reading your journal, Kyle - I often manually append ?style=mine to the end of your URLs to get entries to be readable.

" yagathai said "you lead a charmed life." And I guess I can't dispute that. "

i have been saying this FOR YEARS NOW (and usually been slapped on the wrists for saying so) and here you are, not only acknowledging it (finally!) but giving somebody else credit for saying so???

hrumph, i say to you, sir! HRUMPH!

I trust you to split the ipad fairly. I don't care if I get the top or bottom half.

Throne rocks and I really really covet it! Enjoy southern CA. I'm okay with kittens being part of world domination.

I don't have a problem with scrolling and I use that ol' tramp IE (and sometimes Safari).

I use Chrome and your LJ is always wider than the screen. I have to scroll right/left to see photos and to find your "Reply" clicky link.

I'm kind of hoping someone shows up wearing a ball gown with a top hat and an eyepatch.

It isn't Sean Bean's chair, unfortunately. I was 100% rooting for Ned during the first book, though.

AWESOME!!!

I think you need a throne in your home. I think that should be your new picture for your author's page on any of your new books.
All Hail Lord Kyle!!!!
