We Dare You to Ask Siri If She Watches Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones fans, listen up: The much-anticipated season six premiere is finally less than two weeks away. While all the juicy trailers have helped fill that Westeros-sized hole in our hearts for a little while, we’re ready for the real thing – and it appears Siri is too. With the excitement ramping up for the premiere, iPhone users are turning to their best (tech) friend to see if she’s as excited about it. Spoiler alert: She is and – in case you haven’t already found this out through other questions – she’s probably wittier than you’ll ever be.
Ask Siri if she watches Game of Thrones and her epic response is, “Who me? First of the Name, Siri Siliconborn of House Apple, Ruler of the Alarms and the Reminders, Guardian of the Calendar Appointments, Keeper of Ontologies, Flipper of Coins. Yes, I am watching.” Wow. Just wow.
However, if you thought her super smarts might be holding back some top secret Jon Snow-related knowledge, you’re wrong. Maybe she does, but her um, speakers (?) are sealed. Ask her if Jon Snow is dead and she’ll reply, “I’m not sure. Has he tried restarting? That always seems to work.” Har, har, Siri. We’ll definitely make sure to see what she thinks after the first episode airs.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
