Ten words meme

This is how it works: Comment on this entry and ask, and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

sallymn gave me L. In no particular order:

Liberator - the most elegant spaceship ever on TV, and also my car (with the number plate LIBR8R).

Light - so important to me. I need big windows and lots of natural light because it makes me happy. Winter is a hard time for me; I get SAD and that acronym is a very accurate one.

Lush - no, not Vila; he doesn't drink as much as you think anyway. He has a better sense of self-preservation that that. I mean the natural and deliciously-scented products I kept hearing about from my UK LJ friends and was delighted to find were available here at the 277 mall. I hadn't realised till I bought their soaps, shower gels, and bath bombs, that smell was so important. I luxuriate in the scents of chocolate, orange, grapefruit, honey, ginger, and vanilla, which make bathing a pleasure instead of a chore, and their Dream Cream is the best body moisturiser I've used.

Laughter - no matter how down I am, a comedy or a joke will always make me laugh and feel better. I'm told that I laugh like a machine gun (everyone knew it was me at school, and my sister refuses to go to comedies with me) so I do try to just give an appreciative chuckle in public.

Lizards - I love lizards. They're beautiful creatures. I have a large blue ceramic one on the lounge wall, a pale green glass one inset with paua shell, and I bought a pewter one sunning itself on a piece of schist when I was up north. Tessa likes them too. She brings them inside to play with and we now have Lizard Rescue down to a fine art: offer a piece of cardboard tube closed at one end, let them scuttle up like a rat up a drain, then take them outside, and release them where Tessa can't see.

Love - not the word, but what it is. The word is hackneyed and over-used, esp in song lyrics, but love of all sorts, not just of lovers -- platonic, altruistic, familial, charity/caritas, friendship (not often called love, but it is, you know) -- makes the world a better place.

Laziness - I'm like Vila: I have doing as little as possible down to a fine art. I call it efficiency, but I do admit there's a large component of procrastination and sheer self-indulgence in there. Sitting in the sun with a book and a cat or two on my lap: bliss!

Literature - well, it's as close as I can get to novels with L. I do in fact love some works of literature (I have read War and Peace and The Master and Margarita twice each) but I mean the whole world of fiction, from SF to historical detective stories. I need fiction -- my own or others' -- and get all irritable and stressed when I'm denied that escape.

Life - what can I say? I might malign RL sometimes, but I love it. It should be longer. I feel as if I will live for centuries and it seems so unfair that we get such a small portion. It worries me that Claudia and Tessa only have a few more years at most. A curse on entropy.

Links - the webby sort, not the hairy aliens on Terminal. This can stand for the Internet and LJ, where I have met some of the best friends I have ever had. It's my playground, the place where I can publish my stories, the arena in which I am a moderate success, and the perfect introverts' society. :-)
