Yeah...HBO hardly wins any awards ever. ;-]

Personally, I can't wait to see Peter Dinklage get a shiny new Emmy every year.

Happy name day, Mr. Martin!

I'll light a candle to the Smith for your Emmy win, but regardless of the outcome, your books have meant more to me that the TV show could ever attempt to match. Thank you for enriching my imaginative life. I haven't been so obsessed with a fictional world since I encountered Narnia as a child.

Quoting my favorite author "What a man sows on his name day, he reaps throughout the year." SO HAVE A GOOD TIME, open a bottle of dornish sour or a fine cabernet. This Bukowski poem helped put aging in perspective for me when it was my bday a few days ago.

Two nights before my 72nd birthday
by Charles Bukowski

sitting here on a boiling hot night while
drinking a bottle of cabernet sauvignon
after winning $232 at the track.
there's not much I can tell you except
if it weren't for my bad right leg
I don't feel much different than I did
30 or 40 years ago (except that
now I have more money and should be able
to afford a decent
burial). also,
I drive better automobiles and have
stopped carrying a
switchblade.
I am still looking for a hero, a role model,
but can't find one.
I am no more tolerant of Humanity
than I ever was.
I am not bored with myself and find
that I am the only one I can
turn to in time of
crisis.
I've been ready to die for decades and
I've been practicing, polishing up
for that end
but it's very
hot tonight
and I can think of little but
this fine cabernet,
that's gift enough for me.
sometimes I can't
believe I've come this far,
this has to be some kind of goddamned
miracle!
just another old guy
blinking at the forces,
smiling a little,
as the cities tremble and the left
hand rises,
clutching
something
real.

Happy Birthday George! Thought you might be interested in knowing my close friend brought a little one into the world today whose name was derived from your books... Little Arya Lempinen now shares her name day with you.
