New Addiction

Whoops! What have I done to myself?

I was frus­trat­ed that there were a fair num­ber of books on my “shelves” at Good Reads that had no asso­ci­at­ed cov­er image. I col­lect­ed all but, I think, two of the cov­er images for the books I had list­ed in Now Read­ing, but could­n’t find a way to make use of them at GR. I also found a lot of incon­sis­ten­cies in the way titles were rep­re­sent­ed, and some mis­spelled author’s names.

Then I noticed a link about apply­ing to be a librar­i­an. They’re the peo­ple who can edit author and book infor­ma­tion. Cool! I applied, fig­ur­ing they’d tell me I haven’t been active long enough or some­thing, but not­ing that this is one endeav­or in which OCD is an asset.

Odd­ly enough, they approved me.

This may not be a pow­er I should have. I’ve spent a ridicu­lous amount of my awake time today nor­mal­iz­ing data their data. And enjoy­ing it.

Lazy Day & Posting Articles

It has been such a lazy day. All our body clocks are com­plete­ly con­fused. It’s going to be so hard on Sam to get up Mon­day morn­ing!

These days have been sweet and uncom­pli­cat­ed. I just had a delight­ful can­dlelit bath, with my sto­ry­teller stay­ing with me the whole time. I am very, very sleepy now.

I’ve put this off for a time out of sheer lazi­ness, I sup­pose, but it’s past time to move the rest of the arti­cles on this site into Word­Press. I don’t know how long it’ll take me to work through them, but I’ll try to space them out a bit so as not to flood the feed. I’ll try to remem­ber to use the “more” tag, too.

I can’t just dump the HTML into posts or pages, because there’s always some­thing that’s out­dat­ed, or that I would put dif­fer­ent­ly now. And, of course, I’m try­ing to do this migra­tion with­out leav­ing a bunch of bro­ken links, which means set­ting up redi­rects as I go.

Yes, I know that I have obses­sive-com­pul­sive dis­or­der. It’s offi­cious­ly diag­nosed and every­thing. No, there’s noth­ing you can do or say that will relieve me of feel­ing that I had to go through every sin­gle arti­cle.

Oh. To be more accu­rate than above, I’ve put this off due to sheer per­fec­tion­ism, which is high­ly sus­cep­ti­ble to pro­cras­ti­na­tion for exact­ly these kinds of rea­sons.
