    Haha, yeah, I know the feeling. There are a few neighbors that irritate me - they let their dogs run offleash, saying that "they're friendly." I suppose they never considered that when you're holding four dogs, and one's inclined to be rather unfriendly, it leads to a lot of trouble for the other person. :p See, if the unfriendly one starts barking, then the dumb-but-sweet one (who also happens to be the leader) will start a fight with her by asserting her authority and telling the other dog to shut up. *rolls eyes* So yeah, I'm really pissed at those neighbors sometimes, lol. :p

    Guilty! :eek: I let Holly off the leash, but only around the house, and she listens well. She's just smart enough to know she'd be in a world of shit if she runs off. we'll just ignore the fact that she chased a neighbor's stray cat right up the side of our house, to our balcony. But I blame that on the cat, the neighbors let them run around, all night every night, pooping everywhere. Just punishment. :p

    Ooo, and I have a Deliah story. Not the one I was talking about before, but a dumb/funny one. She was chewing on my friend's scrunchie, and Nancie caught her. She yelled at her to drop it, and the dog freaked, and swallowed it! Now, that's dumb, lol.

    Well, around the house is ok, but these people do it around the entire neighborhood. :S AND the dog doesn't listen to them at all, just starts running at us...

    And LOL! My dog swallowed a rubber bouncy ball once. :p But poor Deliah...

    OMG... I can understand wanting to skip AFFC, but do NOT skip SoS! Please! A character that everyone hates dies! Dance in jubilation... and then start crying again.

    And that's all the spoiler I'm going to extend. >.>

    LOL i already know who dies, I scan ahead:D Im not going to skip anything just need more time to read. I read up on the reviews of AFFC and i do already own the book, having said that is it as disappointing as readers have written in about? Cripes it sounds like ppl want to murder GRRM over it. I do realize that some of the old/beloved characters are left out, confusing but ok ill go with the flow. Whats the real skinny on it?

    It's not one of the best by his standards, but as a book it's still quite good, in my opionon.

    @ Breds: Lol. Nice. :D

    And yes, AFFC is boring compared to the rest of his books, but I'll take it over WoT any day. Actually, I personally found it to be fascinating, if only because there's so much speculation material covered... but the majority of the people hated the book. :) If you're like me (meaning severely obsessed with the series and/or enjoy speculation) you'll like it. :)

    @ Nynaeve: I rather suspect that the folks on the Westeros boards are even worse. :p

    @ Blackness: Well, I liked AFFC 'cause Jaime was in it. :D But Bran's one of my favorite characters, so I'm looking forward to his chapters. :)

    @ Il: Same to you - take care and happy holidays! ^^ Kids are adorable too. :D

    Nice sig, btw. :p

    I liked the insights into Jaime quite a bit. You really get to know his character a lot better. The chapters with Brienne in them are very good too.
