PS. If you happen to have a Game of Furiously Happy Thrones copy just email me at jenny@thebloggess.com and I’ll forward it to the publisher who can get you a pristine, new copy with slightly fewer dragons.

Especially if it had both authors’ signatures. oooooo. I’m gonna go check Ebay. Nope, there aren’t any copies for sale (yet!) I could buy a person’s soul on Ebay, and I could buy a necklace filled with kitten blood, but I can’t find a book co-authored by George and The Bloggess 😉

    Could use cards ‘victor’s weary sigh’ out of ‘ned stark’s Bloody decapitated head’ orrrrrr perhaps ‘Amber the scab monkey’ out of ‘melisandre’s red dress’. The possibilities are endless. Please make an expansion pack. Okay quick google…you can already get plenty of GOT themed packs. We now need a Bloggess one to mash together. Less copyright issues this way…please start writing cards!!!!
