    Yeah, I've got to agree with Cru there... you call that colourful? We have purple money!

    I'm sure that at some point I'll be forced to be, but the prospect of the first few months scares me!

    hehe, I spend a couple of days in milan and I only got one phrase into my head:

    Il Contro, Prego (The bill, please)


    anyway maybe not as colourful as the euro, but the pound is classy, its either the great british pound or punds sterling, so in either term we basically call it awesome.

    plus its got darwin and you can do the funny trick that makes the queen happy or sad

    Yeah, British money's not so bad I guess.

    BTW, "the bill, please" is "il conto, per favore". "Prego" means "you're welcome".

    both work, it depends on regional preference. prego literally means 'I pray' and is often used as 'your welcome' but is accurately used as please as well.

    back on topic; money.

    the twenty note seems to be going the way of the euro these days though.

    If I were in charge, our bills would have ponies and rainbows on them.

    No one beats Australia!

    Well, well, well. I'm glad to be able to say that it is, in fact, now actually "official." HBO's greenlighted ASoIaF; GRRM stated on his site that we can maybe look for a March/April 2011 release date.

    GRRM's posted a bunch of other links on his "Not A Blog," if you wanted to see other versions of the news.

    Also: "On other fronts, I hit page 1311 yesterday. No, not done yet."

    Ooo this will be fun! My two favorite series are now TV shows too. They better cast a good Daenerys or I will be very upset.

    they cast tamzin merchant (might be spelt differently) apparently shes good though I've not seen anythign with her in it (the tudors) and she seems a little wierd looking to me, but I think if she acts it out well enough its all good to me, and I trust the direction of HBO staff after all the good stuff they've done.

    Hmm, yes, she does look a little funny from what I see on google, but I'll wait to see what she looks like in costume and makeup. She better have silver hair and violet eyes...I would have preferred someone as pretty as her:

    To be fair, I'm more concerned with acting ability than looks. :x But the girl you posted looks more like a Cersei to me.

    YES! Emilie De Ravine would have been PERFECT for Daenerys!

    Did the Pilot leak yet? I really wanna see it.

    No, it's been kept tightly under wraps as far as I know.
