Wednesday so far

I went to bed a little before 1:00 a.m.  I could hear Mom coughing and coughing.  I told her to take cough syrup.  I went and got the cough syrup from downstairs, but she'd already taken a cough drop.  I went back to bed a little after 1:00.  It took me a while to go to sleep, but probably I went to sleep by 2:00 or so.  I had strange, vivid dreams.  I was trying to push big, heavy stacks of books up a tiny stairway.  I wouldn't be surprised if I had done something similar in real life.  There was a lot more weird stuff.  I don't usually remember my dreams.  My brain was sort of fuzzy for a while even after I woke up.  I woke a little before 10:00 a.m., just about ten minutes before my alarm clock would have gone off.

Rainjoy wrote a good long chapter of the Affinity!Verse.  Now I know what her Musketeers look like, from watching the BBC show.  This chapter was in Athos' point of view.  [Added: Her Athos looks different.  Rainjoy's Athos has sand-colored hair and blue eyes.  But Porthos looks the same, only younger.  Added later: Rainjoy said she had propagnosia (sp?), face-blindness, and couldn't tell Aramis from Athos.  I suppose she could tell who was Porthos for the same reason that Brittany can't tell Mercedes and Unique apart.  She mentioned the scar on Athos' lip in the fic, which I can't see on the show, but is a real life scar of the actor's.]

Later: I started reading the original Three Musketeers book.  I expected that it would be very different from Rainjoy's version, but it's different from the BBC version, too.

I made it to an appointment.

I wished J.-PA a happy birthday.

P. called, and we spoke briefly.

TallCR wrote me.  I'll answer his e-mail tomorrow.

Later still: I finished part 1 of The Three Musketeers.  The book I downloaded was only the first half, but Thursday morning I downloaded a book that was the whole thing.
