I got through all of those unlabeled tapes. About a quarter of them seemed to be filk. Several were, as far as I could tell, completely blank. Those took the longest because I needed to listen to the first bit of both sides. I had forgotten how time consuming rewinding and fast forwarding are. Now I just have to get back to my friend to tell her that things are ready to go.

I wrote a little more than 2000 words yesterday. I have no idea where that came from. It was all on We Are Where We Began (so of interest to maybe two of you). I think I’m going to try to work on something else today.

Today, I need to wash the shower curtain Scott took down two days ago. I need to do the grocery list (which means digging in the fridge to see what we have and don’t) and to call in a prescription.

Next Wednesday is going to be out and out awful. I have an appointment at 11. Cordelia has an appointment at 4:15. Skyline (the high school Cordelia will probably attend) is doing tours from 4:30 to 5:30 and talking about the curriculum for potential students and their parents. Normally, it would be a game night, but I don’t know that we’ll be home in time for that to work. The school’s website says things will run until 8:30, but part of that will be time for asking questions of specific teachers. I don’t know if Cordelia will want to do that.

Books By Chance doesn’t even want to look at the things I want to get rid of. This leaves me at a loss as to what to do with them. Basically, they have labeled what I have as 'collectible' and thus not in their wheelhouse. The dealer in collectible books I talked to last summer wasn’t interested because none of them are valuable enough for him. I think the most any of them could be worth is about $50, and that’s not a solid number because I couldn’t find the information I needed online. There’s only one copy for sale that I could find, and the listing is in French. The copy I have is a withdrawn library copy which could mean it’s worth about fifty cents. I was hoping to find another ex-library copy for sale so that I could use that for my estimate.

I will probably post a list of what I want to get rid of later on, just in case any of you might be interested. Some of them, I’d send for shipping, and others I’d like to get some money for (things are tight right now) but am open to offers.

I’m kind of headachy and tired right now, so I may try to nap. I’m mainly concerned that I’ve had rather a lot of tea and water this morning which is likely to get me out of bed frequently enough that I won’t be able to fall asleep.

Bother. There’s a minor, recurring OC in the Amber stuff I’ve been writing, and I’ve spelled her name something like three different ways. I need to settle on one and then go edit all the documents on AO3 for consistency. It’s relatively trivial, but it annoys me at the stone in the shoe level. None of my readers have mentioned it. I don’t know if it’s that they haven’t noticed or if it’s that they think it’s not important or if they think pointing it out would be rude/might upset me.

That’s 64000 words of posted fic and another 4000 to 6000 unposted. Bah.
