My laptop is currently running a virus scan. It's been going nine hours already. I have no idea how much longer it will take.

The virus scan took about sixteen hours. All it found was some stuff quarantined by Norton many years back (I don’t remember when I stopped using Norton, so I can’t guess how old those were), but there were a heck of a lot of files (10001) that it wasn’t able to check at all. Avast didn’t tell me which files or why, so I have no idea what’s going on.

I know I have a number of files that are no longer readable because they were created in the early 1990s. At this point, the OS thinks that they’re all Unix executable files. But there aren’t ten thousand of them, not even if I add in the things we still haven’t managed to update from AppleWorks.

Scott suspects some level of corruption somewhere on my hard drive. Disk Utility thinks that every bit of the drive is hunky dory, but… The stupid thing isn’t functioning like it’s fine.

I’m starting to really worry about my Fandom5K story. I’ve still got time, but it’s going nowhere. I think my brain is balking at transitioning from 3000 words of gen to straight up porn. I’ll put a chapter break in, but that’s not quite enough for my sense of the two bits being part of the same story. I also probably need to change POV but don’t quite want to.

It doesn’t help that I’m extremely tired and probably going to be more and more so as the week goes on. Thursday and Friday are going to be fairly awful in terms of physical and psychological stress because I will be out of the house for several hours each day. My sleep hasn’t been great any time in the last week. The last two nights, I’ve awoken an hour before Scott’s alarm and have needed to get up then and then again when Scott’s alarm goes off. Then my alarm goes off about an hour and ten minutes later. I have to be up for fifteen minutes. At that point, I could sleep again if it were quiet enough and if my mind would settle. It just isn’t quiet until Cordelia leaves for school a bit more than an hour later.
