This is great. Today, HBO gave a greenlight to their television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy epic, A Game of Thrones. This is going to make a lot of people happy and I’m glad HBO is there to co-opt fantasy and vampires into mainstream pop culture, but I’m wondering where they were when I was in the fifth grade getting dirt thrown in my face and kicked in the pants for liking the same stuff. Oops! I have to go. I’m late for my therapist appointment.
