  1. There is a tower! How strange! Doesn’t look grand enough for the White Tower, but concept art. Maybe their on their way to the blight and those could be one of the guard posts that line the border? The decay of the forest and trees wouldn’t be seen until past the border. Or if we’re going to deviate enough, that could be one of the seven towers of Malkier!
  2. Yes, you are correct! Thom was with them. Looking at the picture, it doesn’t appear to be Thom, but concept art doesn’t need to be detailed exactly! So this could be on their way to Baerlon.
  3. Today, @WoTonPrime—the official Twitter handle for the Amazon Prime’s Wheel of Time television show—shared a short video and snippets of concept art. The short video featured Rafe Judkins, the showrunner for the Wheel of Time show, emphasizing the themes in The Eye of the World: “of balance, of gender, and the emotional journey of these characters.” While Judkins talks, several images of concept art flash behind him. Let’s take a closer look! So what can we glean from these images? Fans are already speculating. Here's my t

  5. HAHAH! That's hilarious and an interesting way to look at it! It's a possibility. I know sometimes I shake with anticipation for my dinner when I'm particularly hungry and it always seems to taste so good! My journey for 2020 was to start intuitive eating, and so I was eating a lot more foods that sounded good. So I enjoyed my meals a lot more. I was indulging--even when it was taco salad. But I'm sure the atmosphere played a huge part too. We had an amazing Pizza Hut pizza in Rugby, North Dakota the first night we got there to visit my relatives. I t
  6. Congrats on your progress @Phaedra! That's amazing results! My current routine is pretty similar. I started budgeting 1200 calories a day last August. I increased my veggie/fruit intake. I focused on cooking meals instead of fast food. This really helped me lose the weight pretty quickly. I was down 20 lbs at the end of November. Since then, I have not been as strict with myself. I have started intuitive eating, which is listening to my body cues to know when I'm hungry and when I'm full. Some days I stay within the 1200 range, others I got up to 1500. I don't worr
  7. January: Watch a film from a foreign country Last night, we watched the British film "The Day the Earth Caught Fire" (1961). Wow! My spouse and I were up for some disaster films last night so I Googled disaster movies. A lot of interesting ones popped up, but we chose The Day the Earth Caught Fire. I wasn't expecting a lot as it was made in 1961, but this movie was amazing! The US and Russia perform joint--albeit unwillingly--nuclear tests. The duel bombs have enough force to increase the earth's tilt and push it off its orbit toward the sun. The charac
  8. I’m also a vegetarian now and I know it would be trickier to eat the food if we went back! I also didn’t eat seafood even before I was a vegetarian, so my husband ate the oysters and alligator and turtle soup and I had muffulettas and beignets! I actually had an amazing cheeseburger there—at The Oyster House restaurant. It was somehow better than any other cheeseburger I’d ever had to that date. Why was it so good? I have no idea.
  9. Here’s what I had for dinner today: taco salad! It was about 500 calories. Ingredients: 1 serving Boca meatless crumbles 1/2 tbsp cooking oil 2 tsp low sodium taco seasoning 1.5 servings of lettuce 1/8 cup Mexican shredded cheese A handful crushed Cool Ranch Doritos This could be easily adapted to include any other kinds of meats/cheeses/chips/toppings. It was SO yummy and the Doritos added such a great flavor and crunch!
  10. Hi @PiedPiper! Sorry we missed your visit! 1.) This one is too hard to answer! I watch more movies than tv shows, but I don't think one is better than the other. Adaptations or originals? Depends on how well done they are. Animated or live action? I love both! Again, depends on how good they are. I've seen amazing animated films and awful animated films. Same with live action! 2.) Books: Romance! ❤️ Followed closely by fantasy. Movies: sci-fi. 3.) We went to New Orleans the year after Hurricane Katrina. We did a swamp tour--which wa
  11. I had my last check up with my surgeon the week of Christmas. Everything's healed up fine! The second surgery was so much easier. My breasts are about a C or a D. I'm content for now, but not 100% satisfied. I asked my surgeon if we could go smaller and she said yes. Sigh. Then why didn't you? I'm going to heal up completely this time, and then reevaluate if I want to spend even more money to make my breasts smaller. It's seems so wasteful, but this is something I've wanted since high school. I want to be comfortable! I put on a shirt a few days ago
  12. I liked it too! I know a lot of people have complained about it, but it was fun and entertaining. I really liked that Steve's soul came to inhabit another person's body! When I saw the trailers, I was like how on earth can they bring him back to life? He's 80 years old or something! This made sense to me and I liked how they handled it. I also would love for Asteria to be involved in the next film. My husband said that they have to other movies planned for this Wonder Woman timeline, so I think the chances are good that Asteria's character will make an appearance
  13. Making changes alone can be so hard, Lily! We are here to support you when you need it! What types of changes do you plan on making? Will you be cutting out carbs and processed sugars, increase exercise and veggies? Diabetes runs in my family so I'm always concerned that I'll get it as well.
  14. What is the White Ajah? In Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, the White Ajah is dedicated to logic and reason. They are perceived as cold, emotionless, and detached from all earthly ties. Dragonmount's White Ajah isn't so heartless. While we love philosophy and logic and want to debate any topic, we also care deeply about happiness, living our best lives, and being empathetic. We try to use reason to place ourselves in another's shoes. We strive to look at any topic from all angles to understand it completely. In the end, though, we are human, and
  15. Do you watch a lot of movies? Want to get raising reqs for it? Look no farther than the White Ajah’s 2020 Movie Challenge! How it works: Each month will have a different theme. Anyone who’s interested in participating can watch a film they’ve never seen before that fits the criteria of the month. For raising reqs, post a report (at least 100 words) about the film—what you liked, what you didn’t, connections to other films or to real life, share what you know about its historical context, let us know any background info on the actors, director, or others involved with the f
  16. Let's discuss movies! Any movies that aren't being summitted for raising reqs can be posted and discussed here! Remember to keep any discussions civil. We can agree to disagree on all topics covered.
  17. Welcome to another year where we put an emphasis on being happy and healthy with our bodies and lifestyles! While many of us focus on weight loss as a measure for our goals, there are many other ways to achieve a healthy body and a healthy lifestyle. This is a place to discuss meals, exercise suggestions and goals, self care tips, and support all around! Feel free to join in, offer encouragement, and be motivated!
  18. This past #WoTWednesday’s episode of The Dusty Wheel, Innkeeper Matt Hatch hosted our very own Jason Denzel. Matt, who started the Wheel of Time fansite Theoryland, and Jason have been integral to the Wheel of Time community for the past 22 years. Their chat on The Dusty Wheel covered all those years of friendship and ups and downs within the community. The nostalgia is very intense here. They also go into all the known details about the Amazon Prime Wheel of Time television show. Jason does stress that we should be thinking of the show as another turning of the Wh

  20. Oh yes! That's what they do as well! It covers a lot of ground and they do show why we tend to overeat using science and psychology. It's been super interesting! I did see a study that showed how infants are able to regulate their calories. When fed a bottle with more calorie dense foods, they stopped eating sooner. They instinctively knew when to stop and had the same caloric intake as the baby drinking the regular bottle!
  21. I don't know if there's an easy solution for counting calories. The program I use has a lot of foods already listed, so it's not too bad to search for items. If they don't have something, I choose a food that's similar and guestimate the calories I'd eaten. The whole point of Noom (once you get down to the core) is to take cues from your body to decide how much and how often to eat. I'm getting close to not having to log my meals anymore because I'm getting better at portion control. I want to be able to just eat and not worry about it all, and so spending the time to get the
  22. @JamesBrown, I agree with you and your analysis completely! I think that's why I love the ending. It's so tragic, but it's the only logical way for the movie and the characters to play out. Irene couldn't be with him. And his darkness couldn't be hidden away again. I love it so much!
  23. Let's do a favorite: the grid logic puzzle! Here's the story: Sandra is compiling an article on some of the most recent Supreme Court decisions. Help her with her research by matching each case to its date, and determine the final decision (yes votes and no votes) as well as the name of the justice who wrote the majority opinion. Here are the clues: 1. The four cases were the 5-4 decision, Zamora v Pibb, Carson v Dunn and the March 10 case. 2. Zamora v Pibb was the 3-6 decision. 3. The 5-4 decision was 1 week after the 7-2 decision. 4. The March 10 proc
  24. Oh, our Winter Carnival is always so fun! I think we typically have it in January. We did the Year of the Rat Chinese New Year celebration last year! We can have a Christmas theme this year, though. I hope your mini vacation was soothing, @kukasö! I sent my doggies to my mom's for a week and it was lovely! *LOL*
