I ♥ Autumn TAG!!!

Frist of all... yes, dear Ladies & Gents, my Car went through the TÜV without a problem.
I am just as shocked as you are, if I may add.
Which means another 2 Years of polluting mother Nature! *yayz*

And second... I saw this tag @ Lydia's Blog and thought I should try it, too, since I really do love Autumn!
Now to my answers.:

1) Favourite Autumn Lip Colour
Prestige creamy matte lipstick crayon lp 27 sweet & CG shimmer slicks penny slick for eyes[I use it for my lips, too]
 (both bought in Belgium)
I use them almost daily.

2) Favourite Autumn Nail Colour
Actually two this Year. Astor fashion studio nail polish #138 & Maybelline Jade mini colorama #23 dark chocolate.

3) Favourite Autumn Beverage
Tea. Earl Grey, hot...

4) Favourite Autumn Candle
I don't use scented Candles, but rather Essential Oils or Incense Sticks. SandalwoodLitsea Cubeba(May Chang)

5) Favourite Autumn Scarf / Accessory
One of my alltime favourites. I have alot of those broad shawls/scars/pashminis, but this one is the one for Autumn.

6) Haunted House / Haunted Hayride or Haunted Corn Maze?
 Haunted House!


7) Favourite Halloween movies
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown & Practical Magic

8) Favourite Halloween Candy
None, since I don't do the trick or treating & am not that much of a fan of sweets. Sorry.


9) What are you dressing up as this Halloween?
We don't celebrate it in this Germanic Country. :/ But if, then I would either go as Gargamel or as Lucius Malfoy (That Cane)!

10) Favourite thing about Autumn?
There are more favourite things than one about Autumn, but where to start.
The colours of the leaves. The windy Nights that make it all the better to enjoy a Book, with only a small lamp on. The sound of the Rain. Everything becomes more homey. And it's the Season I was born in.
I stop here before I end up blabbering. ;)

If you do like, love or adore Autumn, I tag you.
You're a man but use lipstick? Yay, be part of this meme!
You're a woman who does not? Also good, no one's making you do this meme!

Yours,
Nokta

P.S.: But don't expect me to do this often, I like fashion & make up stuff every now & then, but I don't post about it, I rather like to read about it!

Haters Anonymous (they might call themselves)

The past week I learned 2 things from the internet... (funnily enough, both through a nice blog called brooklyn limestone)... but for now I will stick with the first thing.
The rest might be posted in a following entry, when I am able to comprehend why people actually this thing & after I am done with doing research on it!

Where was I? -Ach, ja. (Yes, I also know german, so let's keep any eye out for the future comment that I am an evil Nazi, too.)
As soon as you write a tiny sentence in a certain language, that someone associates with something bad, they are going to send you wannabe hate mail/comments.
Don't believe me? -See for yourself.
Just because I wrote 4 stupid -oops sorry, I mean simple- words in turkish on another one's blog.
Asking, if they liked İstanbul. (which was kinda rethoric, since she knows no Turkish I believe)
What the...? Seriously!
Do they, Anonymous, even know if I am turkish*² (whether fully or partially) or if I maybe google-translated it. Or my husband/SO/BF/partner did it for me.

I don't care if some turkish farmer mounted a greek's priced goat & got her knocked up with a Chimera. *³
Or maybe it was my turkish grandfather's fault, that your armenian dad threw your mommy out of the house when you were still a toddler. *coughs* size queen *coughs*

In other words... please do not shove your view on politics and/or religion down my throat.
Fashion, sure yes.
Eating meat or not... it's debatable, really.
Why no one did something earlier against the widespread deaths of matchsticks? -Hell, yeah! I am all for Lighters!

But Politics & Religion? It's unwanted & unneeded.
Except for the few time, if I ask you something related to them & am begging for an answer here on MY blog (ergo, my Rules).

I personally did not do a thing to you... & have nothing against you.
Well, except now I do, after all you thought it was totally gorgeous to write down a short BS message as Anonymous.
My Sun Sign might be kind Libra, but my Moon Sign is unforgiving Taurus!
And I was able to find out from where you are.

I hope you people get the message.
This is the only time I will talk about this kind of crap here, so save yourself some time & don't even write anything like that in the first.

Yours,
Nokta

P.S.: I wonder if the same person, did this to the other 2 posters mentioning relations to Turkey.
P.P.S.: Sorry, if this all reads a bit tangled. But I have very thin nerves & a hectic week only started today.

Oh, and btw... wish me luck, yes? -I need to get my car through the TÜV tomorrow. :)

*²=OK, I am partially turkish, but that is beside the point here.
*³= I don't have a thing against Greeks & Armenians... or any of the others I might or might not have killed 100 years ago.

Stocks & Resources to those of you who want them! Whether or not you are an Ottoman, Kurd or Georgian! :D
Download & have fun... Credit is Love! And sharing is caring! :)

Nokta reads... 09/2012

I had a great weekend & officialy got a Year olderyounger, too.
But else there wasn't a lot to do except to read & relax.
And relax I did! With lots of great Books.
Here the ones I read in September. :)

Die Opiumfamilie (The Opium Family - 罂粟之家 - yīngsù zhī jiā [literally; Poppy's House]) - Su, Tong
★★★★★★★☆☆☆
Such an awesome read. I loved the common ways and crude talking. :D
In the end everyone got, what they did deserve. The only one that didn't was poor Liu Suzi, the daughter of the house. I can only recommend this.

Das Jagdgewehr (The hunting Gun - [猟銃 - Ryoju]) - Yasushi Inoue
★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
I just... I had expected more from this "Booklet". Disappointing!
Thus, I could not with the best will in the world, give this more Stars. Even though it was easy and relaxing to read I have to add.

Kain (Cain) - José Saramago
★★★★★★★★★☆
Damnit, this Book was wicked! :D
I wish there were more great Volumes like that. I also asked myself a few times now, if Saramago has always written this splendid. (I do hope so!)
One problem I have with this book however, or it would have gotten all 10 Stars from me. The man knows no decent Point & Comma placement Rules (he could be my twin). For crying out loud!

Fahrenheit 451 (Fahrenheit 451) - Ray Bradbury
★★★★★★★★★☆
I once started reading this Book back then while I was in College, but had to give it back to our School Library before I was even a quarter through because of lack of time.
This Book should be read by everyone, most of all the "Big Brother" target audience and Justine Bieber/Lady Gaga/etc. fans.
In my opinion it is increasingly likely that our future is moving in this direction. If our governments do not bomb us into oblivion soon, and set the survivors back into the Stone Age(this time nuclear) first.


By the way, I took a look at my Photobucket Stats and saw that people seem to like the Facebook Covers quite a lot. I am thinking about a second post in 2 or 3 weeks.
So if you're interested in anything specific, tell me beforehand and soon. ;)

Yours,
Nokta

Now, I have just a few rules for you.
01. Do not redistribute them.
02. Do not claim as your work.
03. Give credit and/or link if asked.

Also, if you take one or more of these, make a commet and tell me whch one(s).
That way I will find out, what people like more.

P.S.: If you would be so extra kind and share this at any of your fave(s) social network(s), might give you lotsa mini karma-points.

P.P.S.: If you do not find what you like, tell me in the comments below and we will see next time.

Sorry for the double post, but something went wonky with the first version of this post.
Let's hope this time everything's fine.
