09:09 am - Finally human again

Still coughing, and will cough for days to come, as per usual, but at least I'm no longer feeling like I've been run over by a truck. Still don't think it was the flu, just a cold.

Am still tired, though, because my night went more-or-less like this:

SORA: Hey! She's lying down! I can sleep on her face!
ME: OOF GRAH *shove*
SORA: Can I at least put my paws on your face?
ME: NO GRAH *shove*
SORA: How about I tickle your face with my whiskers?
ME: GAAAAAH CAT GERROFF!!
SORA: Fine, spoil my fun. *curls up next to my head*
ME: COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH
SORA: I JUST GOT TO SLEEP HOW DARE YOU DISTURB IT WITH YOUR PETTY COUGHING *stalks off*
ME: *zzzzzzzzzzz*

10 minutes later, start the whole script over again.

Sora *did* meow in protest during one of my coughing bouts. Furry little ingrate.

While I am waiting for people to get me information so I can do what they asked me to, here's a question that I may or may not have asked before, but can't remember; sort of a version of rachelmanija's Cool Bits post: what things/characters/plots/settings/etc. will incline you to read a book? What has the opposite effect on you: what do you dislike so much that it takes many enthusiastic recommendations from people whose opinions you trust to get you to read it?

For me, likes/cool bits: girls disguised as boys, arranged marriages (especially when the female part of the match isn't a spunky princess who runs away to avoid it), gruff, cranky male characters with a secret heart of gold or at least not completely dark (er, see most my male anime faves Hiei Kenpachi Sanzo Manji I AM LOOKING AT YOU :D).

Dislikes: Dragons. I am so allergic to them that it takes multiple recs for me to pick something up with a dragon in it or on the cover. Naomi Novik's books are one - it took me forever to pick them up. Same with Alison Goodman's Eon: Dragoneye Reborn. Elves. Political scheming. Save The World.

There's lots more, but I'd rather sit back and read all your comments, as I am barely awake right now.
