Avatar-cat Merlin, as a kitten.
I've been toying with ratings since I started blogging about books, but I couldn't come up with a system that I liked, or said "this sums it up nicely". Since I go for random most of the time, I present to you my very random ratings system:

10/10 Could not be improved on, even by angel dust and a basket of kittens
9/10 So good, you'd take it to meet your Mum
8/10 That movie that you've watched 100 times and you never get tired of
7/10 Someone else cooks dinner – yay!
6/10 Leaving work 30 minutes early
5/10 A very nice day
4/10 Why am I here?
3/10 Waking up and thinking it's Saturday on Monday
2/10 Stepping in the stuff the cat just threw up
1/10 Blind rage at the time stolen from my life

Love the avatar-cat :-) He's a cutie.

Your ratings explanations CRACKED ME UP! I've only ever read one book that qualified for "Blind rage at the time stolen from my life" (Gun Runner's Daughter), and I think Katka qualifies for "Waking up and thinking it's Saturday on Monday"

That is definitely the most fun rating system I've ever read! *cackles* (Ratings are evil. I gave up on them when I couldn't settle on anything that worked for me.)

And Merlin is a gorgeous thing. ^-^

I love your comments about each rating! :-) I laughed right out loud while I was reading them.
