Predictions and very busy

So, it's been a while.

I've been a bit busy, so it's been a while.

So before going into why I've been busy, let me just run through my predictions of cool stuff in 2011.

Game of Thrones TV Show: YAY very good. I don't think they could have done this any better than they did, a real joy to watch.

Ghost Story: ARRRRRG, must have more Dresden Files.... NOW!

The Wise Man's Fear: It was very good, though I'm not sure I like it as much as the first book. The last book of the trilogy will really decide me on this one I think.

The Cape TV Series: Turned to crap I felt, I'm not sure what went wrong, it had so much potential, but it threw it all away. Damn.

One last thing I will mention, despite the fact that I did not mention it in my earlier posts, is A Dance with Dragons. This is the fifth book in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series and had not yet been announced earlier, it came out a few months ago and I have actually not finished it yet. I think I'm about a third way through and it is awesome, but it takes a lot of energy to read and as I've said, I've been a bit busy.

So back to having been busy.
Since my earlier posts, my job at IBM has really taken off and I have been travelling back and forth between Ireland and Denmark several times.

I've also had the fortune to meet a girl, which also takes up some time, though in very nice ways.

I've also been keeping up with my smoking stop, and been trying to get into some good habits of cooking good meals.

And finally the last two months I've been regularly working out several times a week and playing badminton as well.

So it has been quite busy, but also very nice. I can't believe I've soon been in Ireland for an entire year.

I'll try to post a bit more often, there are several things I'd like to post about, so hopefully I'll find the time soon.

Nicotine free through janu'ree & The Cape

Bad rhyme and not quite true, but I liked the "How I Met Your Mother" Reference.

Well 2011 is definitely looking to be a good year.

I've haven't touched a cigarette for a week which means I've saved around 60 euros and of course I'm more healthy and will live longer and all that good stuff.

I've decided that as a reward I will buy a Nintendo 3DS when it arrives if I am still not smoking, as I will save around 250 euros a month, it should not pose a financial problem.

In other good news "The Cape" premiered with a double episode yesterday. I had thought about mentioning "The Cape" in my last post, but I wasn't really sure it would not be a huge disappointment.

Now I'm quite convinced that this will be one of the things that I look forward to every week.

The two first episodes were not perfect, but they were very good, especially for a superhero TV-show.

The superhero story managed to be both original and true to form. I have never read the comic, but I'm very hopeful and intrigued about where this will go.
