One lovely Blogger Award

(I actually found the real Award image, so I use that one.)

The rules of this Award.:
01. Thank the person who nominated you and mention them with a link back to their blog.
02. Put the logo of the award on this post.
03. Share 7 possibly unknown things about yourself.
04. Nominate 15 bloggers.
05. Notify the nominees that you have done so. (might not happen, since I do not know if I have my internet back at that time.)

Thank you ver much, miha.ela!

01. Even though I can talk really fast, I always pronounce everything right. Still some people have a hard time understanding me because of the speed itself.

02. When I work on something important, I rather ask 100 stupid questions than doing 1 thing wrong.

03. I got my driving license very, very late in life, just 2,5 years ago... and I hate driving with a passion.

04. I am a procrastinator! There are a 100 things better to work on at that moment, than what I really should be doing. :(

05. I used to talk perfect british english. these days not so much... thanks to American, canadian & non-Native speakers. :D

06. I love to overuse Emoticons. I am so sorry, but can not stop doing it. Even analog with pen & paper I use them.

07. I am a pessimist. I try not to be, on a daily base, but this world makes it hard for me no to be.
There are a lot of blogs that I would like to nominate, but there is a limit and if yours is missing on this list... you can still do it anyway. Just add the link to your entry in a comment below so I can go and see it. :)
Maybe not all of you bloggers will want to add this award to your blogs, or already have done so in the past. I won't mind. But I will still do so, just so I can share the Links to your awesome Blogs.

Forced Hiatus

If you read this, then I still may not have my Internet back. I am trying to change my Internet service provider because of difficulities. (They do not keep up with the conditions but still want money, so I'll toss them out)

as said above

Until then I would like to highlight just a few of my 'old' Acquaintances here on Blogger.
People who are quite inspirational to me for some time and/or whose (online)-presence I value. ;)

Yuminess and beautiful photgraphs ahead ->; Janis N. @ Pinecone Camp

Informative posts and Travels -> DUTA @ Places with Character

The entertaining loveliness that is her -> Jo @ Majority of Two

 This and that, you can only enjoy her writng -> Indulge Thyself

Sorry, if I forgot to add anyone important. I am sure I somehow did. :/

Let's hope I'll be back soon... and before 2012 ends. ;)

Yours,
Nokta

Nokta reads … 11/2012

Is it already December? -Time sure does fly.
One more Months to read away this Year.
Hmm... Books *om nom*

1984 (Nineteen Eighty-Four) - George Orwell
★★★★★★★★☆☆
I am still baffled. It was nothing & everything I expected!
I felt kind of depressed while reading it, there was this huge oppressing feeling of no Hope. And some of the government actions and; the day to day situations were earily similar to what we have experienced in the past 50 to 80 years, though in a more light and hidden note.
I would like to elaborate more on this, but first have to sort out my thoughts about certain things that made this book and its story the way it is.
Recommending this to everyone out there!!

Das Durchdrehen der Schraube (The Turn of the Screw) - Henry James
★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆
I was not happy about reading this so called Classic. The predominantly inner dialogues of the Governess and that criminal overuse of Commas, to make a sentence crap loads long, had me almost crawling up the Walls. Also, if English is not your first language or you are not on an alomost perfect level with it, skip this Book. It will be better for you.
If you would like to read it nonetheless, it is a legal, free Book at Gutenberg Project which you can Download at this Link.

The Willows - Algernon Blackwood
★★★★★★★☆☆☆
Oh, this was another one of those Classics. But where Mr. James epically failed, Mr. Blackwood succeedded. I was sitting in front of my computer and reading line after line with a jar full of Fingernails in my lap. So Good!
Also, I kept picturing the actor Christopher Heyerdahl as the character called "The Swede", because he was tall like the Actor, who coincidentally played a character who was called "The Swede" as well in a TV show last year. I love it when Fandoms collide! ;)
This also is a legal, free Book which you Download here via Gutenberg Project.

The Day After Tomorrow - Whitley Strieber
★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆
It was a nice read, and almost perfectly written one on one with the movie.
Like most of Emmerich's works, it was a little bit harsh done and the science does not really add up, but that does not count in this new Millenium, right?
Mini Spoiler... I am so glad the homeless Dude and his Dog made it. :3

Das Haus auf dem Hügel (The House on the Hill) - Judith Kelman
★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
This was an unexpectly good read.
It was a Formula that would have been quite stale otherwise, but the Lady did a great job of giving me a good deal of suspense through out the Book.
I also liked the comic relief that were certain thoughts and words coming from her red haired protagonist... actually one of the many main characters, 'cause there really was not a line to draw between most of the characters' and their level of importance, imho.

 (obviously those two Classics are not in the Picture above, since they are e-books)

It might be, that in the first half of December I won't be able to get online, since we are trying to switch to a new Internet and Telephone provider, so I might not post new Entries or read your Blogs.
Until then, have a fabulous time!

Yours,
Nokta

EDIT - This is my 3'rd try at posting this Entry. Blogger seems to be buggy these Days. :(
