Bearded Guys With Swords

The Last Kingdom just released their new season en masse instead of weekly like they did last year. I suspect the algorithm discovered people bided their time and binged a few at a time or all of it.

I took a look at my post count. Counting this post, I have three to publish before the mighty 300. It's equivalent of an army of sweaty, half-naked Spartans, lead by this guy: who can give this guy: a run for his money in the beard-growing department.

I thought.  I remembered the Thorin Oakenshield wallpaper on my work computer and iPod Touch.  Therefore a countdown to The Hobbit:  An Unexpected Journey begins.  It's mostly due to imaginary boyfriend … Continue reading Midweek Geekiness: Is It December Yet?
