Nokta reads... 03/2012

Getting closer to my goal! -Maybe I would have been able to squeeze a 4'th book in there but with mother & the cat being sick, all went downhill, even on the reading front.

Kein Land Für Alte Männer (No Country for Old Men) - Cormac McCarthy
★★★★★★★★☆☆
Unh... I am such a fangirl for that batshit crazy Chigurh, AND Captive Bolt Pistols.
Very well written story, which made me (and my father) long for a sequel.

In meinem Himmel (The Lovely Bones) - Alice Sebold
★★★★★★★☆☆☆
The story is very nice to read despite its sad main plot. But...
...the Sex scene close to the end was like a badly written fanfiction porn chapter. Also the last 20 pages weren't to my liking since the story ended too aprubtly in my opinion.

Die Frau des Zeitreisenden (The Time Traveler's Wife) - Audrey Niffenegger
★★★★★★★★☆☆
After all the hype about this book when it was new & later about its screen adaption, I refused to read it for a long time. But now the time had come. :)
Time Travel & Romance, what a combination that is!? -Great!
Oh, and though at moments the relationship between Henry & Clare seemed a bit inappropriate... I was able to overlook that.


Okay, I have to leave now. Need to hit my neighbour a few times, 'cause he & his sk*nky chick think it is alright to drunkenly scream around in the halls at 03:25a.m.!
Maybe I'll let them live after I am done with them. Maybe...
Nightynight!

Yours,
Nokta

R.I.P. Scotty 1996-2012

(10 days before he died)

It has been a week since our cat Scott has died. Last Sunday.
When he started to spit and convulse my mother woke me, I was sleeping with on the huge couch in the living room, and we tried everything.
I even performed feline CPR on him. But he is gone, forever.

It hurt on monday, when I took him to the vet, so the knacker's yard can come and collect him.
They would cremate and "anonymously" spread his ashes the next day... and all that would only cost me 17€'s! 17!

It still hurt when I woke up tuesday, looked at my alarm-clock and saw that in less than 15 minutes they would put him into the furnace.

And now, a week later, it still does hurt when I spread the cream cheese on my bread, turn and around for him so as to share a teaspoon of cheese with him, like I always used to do... but he isn't there.

I've known this cat for more than half of my life.
He was our family's darling. A mellow, sweet-tempered and lovable big kitty.

He would miaow, whenever he wanted some of the newly bought minced-beef or just to get our attention in at all.
If he wanted some extra attention & affection or just cuddle with us, he would hop on our laps or lie down beside one of use.

And our oldest female cat Mowgli cries every night since Sunday.
She was a baby when we brought her home from the animal shelter and Scott instantly became her buddy, protector, and later her mate.
It's killing me when she mourns for him, wailing so heartbreakingly into the night.

You will be sorely missed.


(Fatso, before he lost some good amount of weight in 2008)

(Mowgli licking her Scott clean, and Painty 'lurking' in the upper right corner.
This must be before January 2008, when we found our cat Filz.)
