Cat Cabinet and reading list

January 31, 2007

Last Sunday, I visited a cat museum called the Kattenkabinet (or Cat Cabinet in English) in Amsterdam. It’s really tiny, with just a couple of rooms with cat paintings, sculptures and posters. It costs a quite hefty € 5,- to enter (about $ 6.50,-), but it is worth it. Not because of the art, which is nice as well, but because of al the cats walking about:

 Welcome cat



 Don’t disturbe me



 I have been reading a lot of great books lately. A sample:

A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America again by Bill Bryson

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

I especially like A Short History, because it is filled with funny and mindboggling facts about the universe and life as we know it today. Makes everyday problems seem small for a little while before self pity takes over again!

Well then…

First! First post! Since this blog is more like a diary for me, I will probably keep it up for about a week. Full of information that might just be interesting to me. I want to record the little thoughts that keep ringing in my head, so that they might leave me alone when I write them down. And to prevent sounding a smidge too depressing, one of the thoughts that has been bothering me this week is: I would love to smash in a window in a bus or a train with one of those little hammers they hang above the windows or doors. I wonder if that will really work. A tiny hammer and a double glassed window made of long lasting plastic of some sort. I would just love to give cracking one of those windows a try using one of those tiny hammers.


And as the title of this blog suggests: I love cats. Dogs too, but cats crack me up and make me giggle all the time. When I feel like it I will explain this fascination at some point, but right now a warm shower and a good nights sleep sound better. I will however leave you with one of my own cat pics. Is this kitty pissed of or what!

Keipissig joh!
