Thank you guys so much! Out of these I haven’t seen The Man Who Laughs and Duck Soup but I’ve heard so many good things about these two films. Definitely gonna check them out.
I finally caved and bought The Red Shoes during the Criterion sale even though I have literally seen it nearly 20 times. But it is so pretty, you know, so pretty… *my wallet weeps softly in the background*
I'm glad you care about movies too much. So do I. I love Pre-Code Hollywood. And I love classic French Cinema. So what started your passion about movies?
Oohhh I love Pre-Code Hollywood and French cinema as well! What are some of your favorite films? I’m interested in literally every genre and era to be honest. It all started when my mother made me watch Casablanca when I was 12. She had a ridiculous crush on Humphrey Bogart since forever. And that was it for me really. Casablanca is the first black and white movie I ever saw and for some reasons, probably because of how beautifully shot it is, the film made me notice and appreciate the technical aspect of cinema (lighting, angles, mise-en-scene, etc…) So yeah I was doomed to be a cineaste ever since *sniffs sniffs*
Hi guys, Mr. Rochester, my cat, is doing better. I just talked to the vet and they said he was eating and doing much better with fluids. I still don’t know when he can come home.
I’m going out of town for a wedding on Thursday, so regardless I have to board him with the vet for a few days next week because they’ll have to continue his treatment.
It’s all really expensive and eating away at my savings account. Anything you can spare - even $5 - would really help me and my kitty.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.
p.s. you can also donate funds to my Paypal account (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I just got off the phone with my vet. Mr. Rochester is doing much better. He’s eating and his levels are all going down.
He has to stay at least one more night with I.V. fluids before he can come home (though I have to board him again with the vet when I go out of town so he can get all his medicine while I’m gone).
His red blood cells are a little off, but they’re giving him some medicine for that.
His kidneys are going to be deficient from here on out and I will have to change his diet and be extremely careful and watchful, but the vet told me multiple times that this does not mean he’s going to leave me anytime soon and that many cats with deficient kidneys live for a long time.
I’m still a crying mess. My apartment is so quiet without his meowing.
This is all going to cost a lot, not just for the treatment right now and his boarding next weekend, but for continual monitoring, so anything you can spare right now is more than helpful: http://www.gofundme.com/Help-Mr-Rochester
