What am I thankful for?
Being Irish. I’ve always dug that I was Irish and with such a loverlee Irish name. Maureen, which means dark one in Gaelic even if the Anglicized meaning is ‘little mary.’ I prefer the dark one… Bwah ha ha! And me given last name? O’Hagan! I even know what area of Ireland the O’Hagans hale from, though only in the ancient meaning. Grandad O’Hagan was a bit of a mystery man… Rumor has it he had another family in Seattle. Anyone know an O’Hagan in Seattle? ;-)
What am I thinking about?
I’m a bit fixated on RT. Putting together all those little things to give people I talk to, ala the excellent advice of Deanna Wadsworth last week regarding how to network. I’m putting together tons of promo stuff and looking at the pile of stuff and wondering… How much stuff can I fit in my Matrix?
What am I thirsty for?
Well, it isn’t green beer. I’m not a biggest green beer fan out there, by a long shot. In fact, I’m not into beer at all. First major drunk of my life was with beer and it was a nasty one. Now? I can’t even stand the smell of it.
So what am I really thirsty for?
A rum runner. I had an awesome rum runner last year at RT Columbus and I’m praying they will be as good in LA. I’m really looking forward to the one on Saturday, after the bookfair, when everyone else is dashing about with YA stuff, I’ll be in the bar, embracing the rum…maybe thinking about the RWA Nationals and how much fun New York will be!
