Game of Thrones. Have you read the books, seen the show? I haven’t. Not really my thing. My little brother talks about it all the time though. He is trying to convince me to watch it. Since I am no longer a slave to my couch and forced to watch really bad television at two in the morning I am sort of resisting. So, I asked him to give me an overview on the show and I would then consider watching it. Here is what I gathered from our conversation. It is about 7 royal families who have artfully designed crests and who are all vying to rule some land somewhere. Basically they run around killing each other. Lots and lots of killing. And some sort of ice wall? From what I understand in every episode like a hundred people die in battles. Like I said, not really my thing. Now, when I relate it to Crohn’s though it kind of fits into my life. You see I have spent the last several years killing off a different kind of throne. The porcelain kind. I don’t have a family crest or anything. If I did though I suppose it would look a little like the image below.
