  1. More Fay pics, from today, and the one of her and Jamie is a scoop, them being sort of peacefully together (Jamie is a spoiled brat that doesn't know his own power and tends to smack Fay too hard).. on their scratching post.

    On this one you can see she's making that chattering sound cats make when they see a birdie.. at least, Jamie and Fay both do that.

    Ohhh and I forgot. Made two short vids of Fay;

     


  2. Just FYI in case people didn't know this: if you tattoo your lower back, they won't be able to give you an epidural during childbirth.

     

    I was surprised at this and did some googling, most results I get is that it's not really the case.. if the tattoo is still healing and covers a large area, then ok, but they say once it's healed it's fine. Plus they could always make a cut so they wouldn't have to go through the ink.

    And there's several like that. ;)

     

    But I adore tattoos, just got my wrist tattoo touched up last week, first time healing made a bit blurry, but now it's clear again!


  3. Well I think I am also starting to notice itty bitty changes on my body, like I said before am not a fan of the scales, for one I don't want to know how much I gained in the last couple of years (I was happy with my body at 62 kg, now I think it's more like 68, seems a lot on my body too, makes my tummy stick out over the wasteband of my jeans a bit, ugh) but also because I'd rather just see the effects on my body.

    I had a bad weekend though, too much sweets and food. But I did go to zumba this weekend and a little fitness afterwards so that's ok. This week I'm going exercising three or four times.. one is yoga/pilates/tai chi so not high impact, other is zumba and I am going for fitness at least once, with minimum of 20 minutes cardio. So if I keep this up for a few weeks I should begin to see more results? I hope.. ;)

     

    And I'm starting more work for internship again so I'll be busier too. And I am biking to work this afternoon, half hour to, half hour back. :)


  4. Am currently reading this.. and am interested even though the beginning is slow like Stephen King. IN fact, the writing reminds me a little of SK-light. Light mening, less slow and annoying. I love King, but some of his work just makes me think "oh get to the POINT".. I don't know how many pages in I am, but I think this is a book I'll be continuing, it is quite intriguing, only those who read it.. tell me there's more (post)apocalysm to come please, that's why I picked this up.. ;)

    Blah, that's not much, it's like.. 22 books? Funny, cause it seems like half the list is on my TBR list. I have some of them, and have Heart of Darkness lying around from the library.

    In a few years I'll have read more, am just starting reading consciously so to speak for a year or so now. ;)


  6. YES. Edward you gotta love. Though except for when he got together with, what was it, Donna or something? It's been a while, like two years since I read anything. So tempting to pick up the books again, but I got plenty more to read.. ;) Ahhh.

     

    One thing I did love about these books was the progression towards kinky sex. Biting (duh vampires), spanking, etc etc. I loved how Anita became more comfy with herself about that, and moresomes. Good thing. ;)

     

    But still, sex purely out of need and not because you plain and simply want to, and the way she treated my fav guys, well that I didn't care much for.

     

    Positive thing, this is one of the few series of books where the characters felt like real persons to me. like they had a life outside of the books that we were missing. Very worthy of obsession. ;)


  7. I can't believe I haven't posted in here before. I own all of the books until after Skin Trade. I used to LOVE them. I always realized they weren't great books, I mean they can be poorly written, using the same phrasings over and over, and quite a bit of errors in continuity and what not. I didn't care much for Anita either. But the guys, the guys. I love them. JC, Asher, Jason and Nate are my favs. BUT.. they're becoming worse.. less about the necromancy and more about Anita sleeping with as many men as possible (hey, I don't mind, really, am enjoying the sex scenes, but sometimes they feel cut short and there's so little time spent on each guy), without particularly enjoying it. She constantly feels guilty, and always needs to have sex to get out of some metaphysical emergency. Also, I don't like the tigers much, or Marmee Noir. This for those who've read em. Hehe.

     

    But yeah, I just found myself more and more annoyed with the books as they continued, and when Flirt came out and would have costed me 18 euros for some crappy paperback, I decided t call it quits for a while, and haven't bothered since. And then I discovered the world of real books, good books, mindblowing books. Get my drift? Not saying I'll never read another AB book, but for now, nah. Still, I miss the guys. ;)


  8. I'm feeling good about myself, I don't think I've lost any weight yet, or not that I've noticed.. I don't weigh, I go on how good I think my body looks. Note, I weigh about 68 kg for 1.72m lenght.

     

    But I joined the gym, did fitness, doing it again this week with a friend, and last saturday I started zumba classes, it's great! I sweated like a pig, it's very intense, and fun! Very very much so. I have sore muscles too hee hee. But I will continue with zumba, and try to do that and fitness both at least once a week. :)


  9. I do want to read this book, I realize it's quite different from the series.. I liked the series, I loved that they kept it short as it is, I would have hated it dragged out as Lost (might finish watching it one day but it's just sooooo long sometimes), even if they meant to keep it longer, it's fine as is. More scientifically explained works for me, I am always asking, how, or why? So on my to-read list for a while now. ;)


  10. Well I don't really hold back my emotions when reading in public, but I have to say the places I read at (work, school) are usually so busy that I can't help but be a little distracted and less involved in my book. So parts where I usually would have cried or laughed when at home, I don't when in public, because I don't feel as much when reading then.

     

    At home, I am a total weirdo, I laugh, giggle, and most often cry when reading books. I'm a wimp, I cry often when reading, and with films, and just in general. ;)


  11. Eheheh.. not yet. Right now he's still like "WTF is that thing?", watching her from a distance and sniffing after her when she's been somewhere, they only sniffed eachother with their faces close two times or something. But no problem, we'll manage. Time we have. ;)

     

    What a difference though.. Jamie is 6,1 kilo and Fay 1450 grams. Wow. Just checked her mouth today too, she's changing teeth already, three of her front teeth (the little ones, two bottom and one upper jaw) are gone. Awww.


  12. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I've had it for 10 years :rolleyes:

    Just got that at the library yesterday, it's quite short I see.. have you managed to read it yet? ;)

     

    For me, I think it's Sense and Sensibility. I got that as a gift from the mom of my ex, when we were just together. I didn't read many classics back then, let alone in english, wasn't very good in it back then. Not enough to read a book. Or classic. But I recently picked it up to start it, only something else came in the way. But that was, I guess... 9 years ago.


  13. We've got a new kitten! As of yesterday.. we were supposed to wait till summer, but there was one left at the shelter, so brother got it for mom as birthday gift.. it's a girl this time, her name is Fay (she was called something like "Meowy" in dutch but we called her Fay) and she's three months old. Aww. She's a little shy, but not as bad as the shelter said. She's playing and coming along not bad with Jamie and our two dogs. She's a little skinny, you can feel her entire spine, each vertebra even in the tail.. but that'll come around soon enough. She'll be spoilt rotten, though we're gonna watch she won't get fat, of course.

  14. See my tattoo/piercing studio's twitter;

     

    Skinamatic

     

    they're brilliant, the woman Kim's doing the piercing, the guy Marco's doing the tatts. He's amazing, great guy, love him, not my type, over 40 and tatts everywhere and stretched ears but really, the guy's got charisma. Mmm. And he's great at tattooing people.

     

    I'd never be able to spend this much money on a tattoo for myself, I think now. All the back or soemthing? I'd LOVE a graceful tattoo (lines, celtic, elvish) along my spine, but it'd be soooo expensive.. spending 1000 euros on my back eehhhh nope.


  15. Oh don't worry Nollaig, whereas that used to be my view on tattoos, now I have two, I think I'm changing my view. I am exactly like that, if worrying too much, I'll never get anything. That's why it took me 10 years and my dad dying and getting a memory tatt of him to get my first tattoo done. Id watch out for a tattoo on a location that's to obvious etc (though, I have one on my wrist now, but still that's easily covered) but I'm less strict now, now it's the money issue that limits my tattoo urges. ;)


  16. I'd never be able to decide though!

     

    You nailed my problem with tattoos. I have a hard time making decisions period, and then with something that's going on your skin forever.. and the feeling you'd get if it wasnt doen just right? Ahh.. It's not cheap you know. ;) hehe.

     

    @poppy, nope not yet. Stardust I mean. I love the film, okay it's a bit too much humor for my usual books but at least it's more the thing I'd like.. It's just American Gods was the first gaiman book I'd got my hands on, and Neverwhere I'd got as a gift from a very dear friend.. I keep telling him I'll finish it one day, but for now I've only read half and all my other books tend to go first. I did like the series though, watched it cuddled up with him so that might have been the appeal, it was very very british, but then so is he. ;) But that did make me want to read the book, but I've never had this much trouble with that short a book. :lol:

    I wouldn't get this myself but thought it was a wonderful quote. Neil Gaiman mentioned it in a blog ....it is a quote from his Fables and Reflections

     

     

    Am not a big fan of Gaiman (sorry, but I just find his books hard to read, have tried American Gods and Neverwhere and am boooored), but this quote is nice. Different font though, this seems like someone's typed onto the shoulder, I'd use a font that's prettier. ;) I'm all for pretty tattoos.
