I concur on hunter house- I've had it plenty and always been underwhelmed. Bates blows it away. Millers is my favorite, although in previous discussions on this topic it seems a lot of folks think they're overrated as well.

The Tool fanpage on facebook posted an update the other day about Tool playing at the Cubby Bear in Chicago- I almost shit myself. Turns out it's actually just a tribute band and all of Tool's fans on facebook got the shit trolled out of them, myself included

Great episode! I loved all the nods to the books- Ramsay saying a feast for crows, as well as all the foreshadowing done! Also loved that we all can say for sure that Mance Is dead haha...
I had such a geeky giggle when Tormund yelled out WunWun's name- as soon as I saw him in the tent I thought "that has to be WunWun"

Was thrilled to see Tyrion finally get to Dany... Sadly the show watchers will never get the pleasure of learning about all the turtles of the mother Rhoyne and Penny. Aemon's scene was quite awesome as well, I'm glad they threw the egg lines in there

|12 weeks 2 days ago||The details of my life are||
The details of my life are quite inconsequential. My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

|12 weeks 3 days ago||I went to private schools all||
I went to private schools all my life, and never had the motivation to excel. I'd say it was mostly due to me being smart enough to just skate by and do the bare minimum to get decent grades. I wanted to go to Michigan, but apparently not bad enough to work hard for it, since I got waitlisted and rejected. At the time I was disheartened because although I didn't have the grades to go, I knew peers that had worse grades than I did and got in easy (there's probably a few buildings around AA that have their families name's on them.) I also wasn't too fond of my highschool and most of my fellow classmates, which definitely didn't help motivate me to try hard.
Fast forward to mid-way through my undergrad and I was hating my business major and got really terrible grades one semester. The unhappiness coupled with me drinking quite a bit and not doing any studying was pretty horrible. I studied abroad that next semester, got awesome grades, and switched to political science after that. From then on, it wasn't so much that I had to be motivated to try hard, but I had found a subject which I genuinely cared about and enjoyed. I didn't see the work as studying- rather I wanted to learn as much as possible about politics and had some great professors along the way that I was able to get to know who pushed me. I graduate this Friday, and I am currently looking around the country for jobs with advocacy groups or basically anything remotely politcally related.
The moral of the story for me is- don't sweat highschool and don't sweat not getting into your dream college. I count myself very fortunate to have had the ability to go to college period, and even luckier that I was able to find a major and a field that I am passionate about. Now, whether or not that passion will transform into a succesful career remains to be seen, but I wouldn't go back and change anything from my life. To me, its more important to find something that makes you happy and gets you excited rather than just a major or career that you slog through day in and day out just to make money. I really look forward to any interviews I may get, because for the first time in my life I'll be able to be completely genuine about why I want such and such a job, instead of pretending to be interested to get simply get hired and survive. I find that a lot of my friends that have already graduated with degrees they weren't all too excited about are now in jobs they hate- even if they are making decent money. That would be the biggest piece of advice I would offer anyone in highschool or just starting college. Do not pick a major or work toward something simply because you think it will pay well. There is so much more to life than money. Take many different classes in many different subjects, and try to find something that you are actually passionate about.

I haven't ever had bad service at Shaw's, but I find it to be a little overrated for the price. With so many good seafood restaurants in Chicago I usually go elsewhere

I tried it yesterday for the first time this year and was really underwhelmed as well. I kept thinking to myself "did it always taste like this??" Very mediocre.

Beside the obvious tourist attractions, I'd reccomend visiting the London Fire Monument- My English friend took me there when I visited and I have to say it was by far my favorite. You get some awesome views of the city! You could also check out the O2 and the nearby cable car lift that gives you some good views of London as well. Most importantly enjoy- London is my favorite European city!
