Happy April Fool’s Day

aprilfoolsday2THIS EXPLAINS A LOT:

In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar (the Gregorian Calendar) to replace the old Julian Calendar. The new calendar called for New Year’s Day to be celebrated Jan. 1. That year, FRANCE adopted the reformed calendar and shifted New Year’s day to Jan. 1. According to a popular explanation, many people either refused to accept the new date, or did not learn about it, and continued to celebrate New Year’s Day on April 1. Other people began to make fun of these traditionalists, sending them on “fool’s errands” or trying to trick them into believing something false. Eventually, the practice spread throughout Europe.

      I liked how one of them cooked its own dinner! They are going to be big soon. I so wish that when they were buying those soldiers that Daenerys would have understood the language of the guy she bought those soldiers from. You don’t want to make her mad. One of the things I like most about her character is that she IS a badass, and everyone that doubts her end up learning too late. She is like the most powerful woman in that world, yet people take her lightly, now that she has her Dragons back she is going to settle some old scores.

        I have a feeling that she comes to understand how that clown feels about her. There’s that trailer with her standing in front of a wall with flames raging behind it? She is badass. BUT she has a pure heart. I think there will be some interesting alliances, later in the season.

          One thing I’m happy about is seeing that guard who fought Aria’s dancing teacher from the first season. He is going to get his some day. The dancing teacher was a great character who’s fate was really left unanswered, I really hope he returns later in the series. She does have a good heart, she can but vicious but she isn’t insane like the men are.

    Cobalt, did you watch Game of Thrones? Did the little guy kick butt?

    • CobaltBlueDawg says:

      Just watched it for the second time. He’s going to do just fine. It was good to see Bronn is still with us.

        Littlefinger is such a deviant! I know what he has planned with Sensa, well I think I know, I wouldn’t put it past him.
