    What are things you do for self-care?

    Aaaaaah Epica! I even attended one of their concerts when I was young and foolish... Good idea, I have not listen their songs for ages! Therion and Rhapsody were nice, too.

    What are things you do for self-care?

    I pick up a book from my personal librairy that I've not read for longtime, and I read wrapped in a blanket with a hot milk with honey. I can stay entire days like that. And I run in the wood while listening old songs of Nightwish, Metallica, Within Temptation...

    Pictionary 45: The Last Time I Went Camping

    I'm in the middle of booking a table in a restaurant and about to go to the beach so pleeaaaaase wait for me (the scarse october sunlight of my last days of holidays can't wait)! I will arrive on time on Saturday with an amazing sentence about how I fought a grizzly last time I went camping. Or two grizzlies. And I had only a spoon. And they had katanas.

    Cats: Threading their way into our lives.

    I owe you an update regarding my new cat I picked up at the shelter on late August: she died one week after. She suffered from feline infectuous peritonite, a disease that kills mainly kitten in a few days. I went three times to the vet and the last time she had to be put down. At the end she could barely move... That's how ended my first cat-story. At last she had a nice last week at home; she was suger-coated with the best food I could find (did you know there is even organic food for pets?), she slept on my favorite hoodie on the sofa (the two last days I had to carry her to the sofa), she stayed with me on the evenings while I read or cooked, always purring, so I guess -I hope!- she enjoyed my company. To conclude, I think I will wait another month or two before seeking again a cat...

    Cats: Threading their way into our lives.

    I bet that as soon as they have noticed your presence, they froze immediatly and pretend to be totally normal cats (turning down the disco ball, hidding the spliffs and the guns, and staring at you with big innocent eyes like Puss in Boots in Shreck...). I picked up my kitten today at the shelter... Shall I install surreptitioutly cameras in the living room to see how it handles its first night at home? I should be surprised...

    I'm not guilty of this crime, Your Honor! I admit I had an accident in a roundabout because I did not put on the blinker... But read the story before throwing rotten tomatoes at me: I did not intend to leave the roundabout at the first exit but the exit immediatly following, so I did not put on the blinker. I was on the outer lane. My car was hit by the car behind me that was in the inner lane and wanted to take the first exit. The other driver thought that I forgot to put on my blinker and that I was about to exit! Hopefully we were driving slowly and there was only damages to the bumpers and the wheel covers. But as I wanted to leave only at the second exit, I did not need to put on the left blinker (just the right blinker at the second exit), nor going on the inner lane.

    @Raja: this is definitly a marathon and I'm sure you will enjoy 2049 on big screen (a wonderful experience in theater: perfect photo, perfect colors, perfect framing...even if personnaly I prefer the first Blade Runner, that, at least, has a genuine story to tell...) . By the way, Trevor is the worst name. Remember, this is the name of Neville's toad in HP.

    Cats: Threading their way into our lives.

    Well, last Friday I expected to bring back at home a newcomer. I was keen to show it/him/her the appartment, the cat tree, the litter, the food... At the shelter, I choose a young male entirely black, rather quiet. I began to fill the forms and...It turned out that he had an injection against rabid a few days ago, and that I should wait 21 days to be sure of its effectiveness. This is mandatory when you cross a border in Europe (I presentely live in Germany and the shelter is in France), but I did not know. Thus I have to wait another week before taking the cat (he has no name at this stage, but I launched a big contest among my relatives to find a suitable name). And now I'm turning into a lame cat-addict, wondering everyday if the cat is doing well in the shelter, and counting the days before the official adoption. @The Mother of The Others I thought that cats ate only one sort of herb, and were not interested in the others. Good luck to find the herb that will make your cats forget the grass! (try cannabis?)

    Not sold in Europe it seems... :-( BTW I remember having seen Doritos flavor "Russian roulette" (I don't remember the very name): most are simply classic cheese Doritos, but some are higly spiced...

    Top 10

    @Quinze I forgot A Confederacy of Dunces, the kind of novel even our distant descendants will find sharp and accurate... @sologdin I like the term of "respectable subgenres" :-D And I'd like that book reviewers bear in mind that there is no non-respectable subgenres... I read all Sade's books (unwillingly!) and excepted Philosophy in the Boudoir that was vaguely funny, I found the other rather boring, especially 120 Days of Sodom (unfinished story with gruesome descriptions, at least Juliette/Justine were well writted and genuinely erotic). I acknowledge I missed the point of the ramping revolt against everything, (including eroticism itself? At least what eroticism was supposed to be in late XVIII century?) that runs throughout this book, but I would not call it an erotic novel.

    Now that I'm settled in my new life and I've read ADWD until the end and the first online chapters of TWOW, I'm ready to participate again. :-)
