A strict dress code. When I was in Windsor a few weeks ago, I wanted to walk the Long Walk. It’s like 10km or something. Full Story
Check out Kerry Washington as Anita Hill in the upcoming HBO biopic Confirmation about Clarence Thomas’s Supreme Court senate hearings. This was almost 25 years ago.

F-cking teenagers. Sullen and reluctant, whether they’re humans or dragons. Sarah will probably defend Drogon in her recap later but come on, all he did was burp. That was basically his contribution.
