Road Trip: Santa Fe in Snapshots

The best excuse to not write for a week is a road trip across huge empty country to a picturesque destination. Just got back from Santa Fe, NM, with several shopping bags of loot and a few snapshots worth sharing.

We explored ...



Pedernal - From the Ranch I, 1956


Classic food at MARIA'S, where they serve the best margaritas in town.


AND (for me) THE PRIZE...


Fans will know that George RR Martin calls Santa Fe home. This happens to be the movie theatre he purchased and renovated a couple years ago. It features a coffee shop, art exhibit, and book store that sells only signed copies of his books and books by several other authors. What did I buy? A signed copy of Dying of the Light, and a gorgeous illustrated copy of The Ice Dragon. My only regret is not staying long enough to watch the feature film and enjoy a cocktail named after the icy wraiths in A Song of Ice and Fire.

Well, there's always next time.

AGoT fan prefers the books...

So, I started reading Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire years ago, right after Book 3 came out. I love the grotequery of the characters so much that I haven't wanted to watch the HBO series and have someone else's vision of the story mess with the lovely (ugly?) vision in my head, not until well after the last book is released and I've read it a couple times.

However, if I were to watch any version of A Game of Thrones, it would be this one, which I found on Sploid today:
