Happy Gay Friday & Some award, reading and world news
This week went by in a bit of a blur. It was a week of waiting, tears, cuddling and self-pity until this morning the results from the vet’s examination came, which we had been waiting for since Monday.
Nothing new, no miracle for Binny, sigh. We still have the choice to go and try some pain medication with the risk that his kidneys get worse, but with our minds we already know that this is not the best choice for Binny. He won’t get better, we’ll only stretch his suffering. But with our hearts we’re not completely there yet. We have this weekend to think about the options and to enjoy his company and presence as much as we can, probably for the last time.
Because of all this I have been neglecting my blog hopping a little bit. I tried to keep up but every time I looked at my blogroll I couldn’t believe there were new posts already that I hadn’t seen yet. And I lurked a little bit more than usual because I couldn’t always find the inspiration to leave a comment. Sorry for that, and for it to continue for another week or so, probably.
Despite of this you were all so kind to leave me a lot of comments at my blog, which I really enjoyed! Thank you all for that!
Let’s keep focusing on the positive :) I’m really grateful for the blog awards I got this week! There’s one I haven’t mentioned yet. I got the Gnome Approved Sexy Blog award from Patti yesterday. Thanks so much Patti! It comes with no rules but I want to pass it on to one sexy writer and one sexy reader:
They are both very dear to me and absolutely sexy writers and bloggers! This is the sexy award:
Isn’t it gorgeous? You gotta love gnomes!
Some Happy Gay news I woke up to this morning was coming from Mexico. Five same-sex couples have made history in Mexico City as they wed under Latin America's first law that explicitly approves gay marriage. I think that's wonderful. Coming from a country where gay marriage is legal for a long time now – I think we were one of the first countries with this law – I’m always very happy when there’s a new place in the world where equality wins.
Conquest from S.J. Frost a week ago and meant to post a review this week about it, but I couldn’t concentrate on writing one. I hope I will be able soon because it was a wonderful read, with some highs and some lows I want to share with you.
Catch Me If You Can and although it was a great book I couldn’t bring myself to read more than a few pages every day. Last night I turned in early with the intention to finally finish it. I didn’t quite succeed, but I did this morning. And it was a good book to help me lift my mood :) It’s hilarious, witty and sexy. I loved it! So far I haven’t heard anyone who didn’t and now I know why. I can highly recommend this M/M romantic suspense story. It was almost over the top comical, with the characters all showing up one after the other in several scenes and with doors swinging open and slamming closed when someone entered. In Dutch we have a word for this kind of stage play (in theaters), it’s called a ‘klucht’. I don’t know what the English word for that is, but it’s probably something like a farce or stand-up comedy. At times this book reminded me of that genre. It was delicious! And let's not forget hot!
