Happy Thanksgiving by The Ivory Tide (BLW Contributor)


national-lampoon-s-christmas-vacation-national-lampoons-christmasvacation-31459765-1500-997Happy Thanksgiving to all my followers and anyone from around the globe who happens by. This is my favorite time of year and if you know me just a little by now, well, I’m not so serious. I love a good laugh. The movie Christmas Vacation always had us in stitches, especially the antics of the good-hearted character played by Chevy Chase. My father used to tell me, “You know Mike reminds me of Chevy Chase.” Mike, of course, is my husband. Yep, I had to agree with my Dad. So every time I see him in a movie I think of my husband. Thanks Dad, I’m grateful. I guess God knew I needed laughter in my life.

There’s something about Dads in our life. You go to them for those important conversations in your life. We save them for the big stuff and then we never talk about it again. Our mother’s are there for us every step of the way, and we even call them mommy when we are teens. Somehow this makes us feel good. Now I’m one to believe that these roles can be reversed, so you see I use this loosely. A father can be more motherly and vice versa. People give us different things in life, some gifts, some pleasure, some outright trouble, and then, the special ones give us love. And we keep going back for more of that, right!?

Please think about this on this special holiday celebrated in America. I believe the little ones want more of your love along with boundaries and restrictions. They don’t want to be told no and how awful they are. Try to lift your little ones up and give less put downs. Think about yourself and how you’d like to be treated. Families don’t live by each other anymore, so grandparents don’t get to be a big part of the little ones lives. One of the common threads for my husband and myself in our life was grandparents. We were especially close to them. They gave us unconditional love. Always. I think children lack this now a days. What do I know? My family life is not perfect, but I do keep trying and loving.

I think knowing you are loved is a primary gift we get in life and some kids don’t have that. I am grateful for my parents, all their love and support they gave me throughout the years. They were supposed to be here with my family this year and we are sorry they couldn’t be here. Instead they are with one of their children, my brother, who needs them more. That’s the kind of parents they have always been, supportive til the end of time at their own expense. We love you mom and dad, forever. Miss you, too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Now to lighten things up a bit. Have you ever heard of a turkey vulture? I hadn’t until I moved south many years ago. When you finally see one you will never forget them. They hang out in groups and love to perch themselves on the rooftops of homes or high in the trees. If you spot one or ten, then know that something big has died in your vicinity! Take a look.

Game of Thrones – The Laws of Gods and Men (Don’t Push Me)



Written by Ryan Fu @fu_beatz

Peter Hayden Dinklage is an American actor. Since his breakout role in The Station Agent (2003), he has appeared in films such as Elf (2003), Find Me Guilty (2006), Underdog (2007), the British film Death at a Funeral (2007) and its American remake of the same name (2010), The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008), A Little Bit of Heaven (2011), Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012), and Knights of Badassdom (2013). Since 2011, he has played Tyrion Lannister in the HBO series Game of Thrones, which earned him the Emmy and the Golden Globe Award for Supporting Actor in 2011. Peter is such a fine actor and in this week’s episode he once again shows us why he should get another nomination because he killed it in this episode.

Please check out our other G.O.T Articles

Two Swords (My Little Pony)

The Lion & The Rose (Ding Dong the Evil King is Dead)

Breaker of Chains (I do it for the Nookie)



But before we get to Tyrion’s most epic speech, we should talk about what else happened in the episode. Stannis and Davos go to the Iron Bank of Braavos is a bank in the Free City of Braavos get funding for Stannis army. Naturally, the Iron Bank respectively declines Stannis request because the numbers don’t add up. I thought it was funny that back in the day they still ran your credit. So, his main man Davos had to stick up for the rightful king of the throne and demand that the Iron Bank help Stannis, which they do but I’m just wondering what the interest rate would be to take over a kingdom?

IMG_9244 IMG_9249 IMG_9250 IMG_9265 IMG_9269 IMG_9277 IMG_9281

Theon Greyjoy. Poor, poor Theon. I know I’ve said this in the past but can someone just put him out of his misery. Every episode I watch with a scene of Theon, I think this can’t get any worse, but it does. His bold sister, Yara, in which I might have a crush on only because she seems to be the only Ironborn female in the country (I like them rugged) has the courage to free her brother. But when she gets there, she does not find her brother but a thing that used to be her brother as she leaves without her brother saying to her troops that her brother is dead. Ramsay Snow is so pleased with his pet Theon aka Reek, he gives him a bath and I finds out how much he loves his master by devising a plan to go to Castle Black.

IMG_9284 IMG_9287 IMG_9299 IMG_9312

Speaking of masters, Daenerys Targaryen is looking quite confident in her new role of the Queen of the free slaves. She has shown her mean streak but now she is showing her softer side but giving mercy and comfort to her people. I wonder how long this nicer version of the “Mother of Dragons” is going to last because these dragons are getting bigger!

IMG_9350 IMG_9369

Now we can get down to the nitty–gritty of this week’s episode, which was the trial of Tyrion Lannister. His brother Jaime aka the Kingslayer brings him to the hall where oddly enough someone in the audience screams out,

“Kingslayer” not to Jaime but to Tyrion. I thought that was a dramatic role reversal.

IMG_9395 IMG_9404 IMG_9417 IMG_9422

They council brings up witness after witness showing evidence that Tyrion Lannister is guilty of killing Joffrey. They take a short break which Jaime makes this his opportunity to try to save his brother in which he does momentarily as Tywin Lannister offers him to save his brother if he quits the Kingsguard and becomes next in line to the throne. Jaime agrees and tells his brother to just comply and fess up to his false crimes.

IMG_9424 IMG_9435 IMG_9444 IMG_9455 IMG_9456 IMG_9461

It seemed like for a second that Tyrion was about to take his advice but they finally pushed a motherfucker to the edge. As the council brought out his one true love, Shae, which she dropped the bomb on him and the court, telling the council that it was the plan of Tyrion along with his wife to poison the king.

IMG_9479 IMG_9484

As Grandmaster Flash would say,

“Don’t push me because I’m close to the edge. I’m trying not to lose my head.”

That was the last country-ass straw that broke that Humpday Camel’s back! Tyrion loses his shit!

IMG_9511 IMG_9515 IMG_9524

“I wish to confess. I confess. I saved you, all of you. I saved this city. All of your worthless minds. I should have let Stannis kill all of you.

I confess that I am guilty of being a dwarf but I am not guilty of killing the king.

I will let the Gods judge my fate… I want a trial by combat. “



You might as well hand out that Golden Globe and the rest of the awards to Peter because he fucking “Kingslayed” that scene and other every scene this season. This is just other reason why Game of Thrones is one of the best shows on television because of all the great story lines and the great actors/actresses who play these awesome characters making this show a must watch every Sunday night. I’m just a fan like you but I have not read the books so I don’t know what’s going to happen next but I eagerly wait what’s going to happen next in the Seven Kingdoms.
