The Rose of Highgarden...

Yesterday was my staff retreat day. Ha! What a joke that was. Approximately eight hours of my life I will never get back. Motivational speakers do absolutely nothing for me...although the one of the speakers used some clips from Kingdom of Heaven and Master and Commander. The only problem with that is I would have preferred to watch both of those movies rather than listening to his presentation. MEH...and now I get to look forward to the AGM this weekend. ARRRRRGHHHHH!! Where is Ser Ilyn when you need him....

More importantly the first bit casting news for Game of Thrones season 2 (and beyond, hopefully) has been released. NATALIE DORMER is set to play Lady Margaery Tyrell. I imagine that may irk a lot of people. Natalie, who is approaching 30 yrs old, is significantly older than the character she is portraying. However, GoT has already aged most of the characters anyways so I really do not have an issue. I loved Natalie in The Tudors and I was ecstatic when I heard the news she was cast as Margaery. Her character is far more  significant in the third and fourth books so I suspect that means they will up her part for season two as well. Hopefully we will finally get to see Highgarden :) The GoT fans are already on the ball with this one...photoshop + Tumblr graphics = godsend...




In other news, I see Feliciano Lopez defeated Andy Roddick today in straight sets...hmmm, Wimbledon just got a little more interesting.
