Aw, somebody loves/likes/hates me!

First off, an enormous congrats to Beth Revis who just signed a book deal with  Razorbill! I found her blog via Elana Johnson and I'm excited to get into the archives! Also, she's having a giveaway in honor of the announcement, which you can read about here.

The lovely Laurel of Laurel's Leaves has tagged me in a blogging meme, my first! It's the love/like/hate thing, and to be honest I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do. However, rather than look it up and actually figure out the rules, I'm going to wing it like that guy who refuses to read the instructions and ends up building the IKEA bed backwards.

Me gusta coffee - I definitely have a love/hate relationship with cafe, but I can't deny the allure of it's caffeinated wantonness
Me gustan dreams - not the sleepy kinds, although those are fun, too. I like the hopes of something greater coming in life, always
Me gusta a really. Really. Good joke.
Me gusta warmth. I'll take a 100 degree day over a 40 degree one any time (can you tell I'm from Texas?)
Me gusta the hedonistic experience of food

No me gusta wasting my time
No me gusta not knowing something, especially if it's necessary to do my job
No me gusta alfredo sauce - that stuff is blech
No me gusta letting people down, although I do it all the time. Such is life.

And now, for the brief list of things I truly love:
My walks with the partner-in-crime and our trusty getaway dog, Scout
People who I've known so long that I don't have to be anyone but myself with them
Words - oh, come on, I'm a writer, what do you expect? But I love the subtle differences. Por ejemplo, yesterday I was concocting character descriptions and I had to choose between "austere," "reserved," and "stoic." Loves it.

So thanks, Laurel! I think I'm supposed to tag other people, but I'll hold off on that for now. Happy St. Patty's Day, everyone! Or, as my partner-in-crime calls it, "New Years for Irish people."
