I finally finished reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, and I loved it. It took me a long time to read because I had to stop every few pages to organize my thoughts. Chabon's vocabulary is impressive, but what's even more impressive is his talent for finding and using le mot juste every time. This book was really exciting to read! There is a big chunk of bad events at the end, sad happenings that I predicted early on in the story, and I was really irritated by that. There are a lot of instances of Chabon's leading the reader to certain conclusions---dramatic irony--- but I knew they were coming, and that's never any fun. Even so, Chabon tells a good story, and I am impressed. The book carries a lot of those "egadz!" moments, spastically-splayed limbs and all. It's just so good. I have very few negative things to say, and most of those things are the product of my own idiosyncratic nitpicking. It's just what I do.
I also read the first page of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and I nearly fainted it was so beautiful. I am going to start it tomorrow, and I hope my head doesn't explode.
I have a sickness. I don't know what the sickness it, but it really doesn't feel good. My lungs hurt, and so does everything else.
Today I caught a little boy and his friends chasing and threatening my precious kitty cat with a big stick. When I confronted the rug rat he told me he had no idea what I was talking about as he was clutching the stick. I told him it was best not to lie, especially once you've been caught, and I said that if I caught him doing anything to my cat, I would be speaking to his parents directly. He continued to lie and apologize profusely -- a strange combination. I just walked away before I ended up hurting him. My poor kitty cat came running home and hid under thick bushes refusing to come out, and A heard the child say "I was trying to get that cat." I dislike children.
I recently became the owner of PedEgg Professional. I love it! I do not have dry, cracked, disgusting feet, but sometimes my heels need a good rub from a pumice stone, so I have found that the PedEgg gets it done much more quickly. I love it lots and lots, but I can only use it once a week, possibly every two weeks, or I will hurt my tootsies.
One of the elephants at the zoo is pregnant, and I am delighted. I can't wait for the baby elephant! I love those elephants so much.
