Cats - Sora and Nefer

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.
Near - que?

(no subject)

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.
