Ahahaha, uh. Occasionally I am a bit crazycakes.

So. I have a delicious, which I use to keep track of the ridiculous number of fics I read. But there was a short period of time back in, mm, April, I think, when I was away from my computer but still had access to a computer on which to read fic. So bookmarking said fics on delicious wasn't particularly easy, so I just stuck the links into a draft email to myself, and left them to be properly bookmarked when I got home.

But when I got home I was not in the mood to do all the work of categorizing and cataloguing those fics, and just wanted to read more fic. But I couldn't just delicious-bookmark THOSE fics, because then my delicious bookmarks would not be backdated in the order I actually read them! And that would be bad! So I just added those links to the bottom of my email draft, exacerbating the problem.

And I kept on doing this. And occasionally I'd be like, okay, I really ought to delicious these. So I'd start going at the top of the draft email, and work my way down, but I'd never get all the way through. So I'd keep on having to just add new links to the bottom.

This vicious cycle has been going on for MONTHS.

Partway through this process, I began adding my summary/descriptions to the links, so that when I went through to bookmark them all I wouldn't need to reread each story to be able to tag it properly. (Bookmarking the first bunch of fics, for which I hadn't done that, was a MAJOR pain.)

And now, finally, I just sat down and powered through the ridiculous number of links that were sitting in that draft email, and CLEARED IT OUT. FINALLY.

So now, whenever I read a new fic, I can bookmark it directly right away! What a concept!

(and I can get back to work on my Delicious Organization Project, wherein I properly tag all the fics I bookmarked in years past!)

So yes. That is the story of Yet Another Way In Which Sophia Is Organizationally-Obsessed-In-Stupid-Ways. The end.

(It feels REALLY WEIRD, to no longer have that draft email as a constantly-open tag on the left-hand side of my browser! It's been there for MONTHS now!)
