Is it really a good idea to have a blog – especially one where you will expose parts of your life to public view? And beyond that issue, is it something that I will actually do with any consistency? Will it peter off into a waste of computer uptime? Is uptime even a word?
Well, these and other questions may be answered in the fullness of time, if, in fact, time can be called “full”.
Meanwhile, I’ll just write on with the knowledge that this time, everything I write is being carefully archived – albeit on my own private webserver which can be turned off whenever I damn well feel like it.
My desk is not usually this cluttered. Today is my last day in my office until I fly off to Phoenix on Monday for the NCSS Annual Conference. I am strangely calm, which is odd considering that our conference director quit a few months ago, has just been replaced by someone who is a bit bewildered at having to pick up the pieces, and I’ve done far more than my usual share of conference planning and logistics this year. I enjoy having a greater role, because it lets me bring my full Leo self to bear in planning things the way I think they should be done. But I am also in over my head, trying to juggle so many things as well as keeping all the information I need in my paltry memory. Well, it will all be over in a week… except for the sore feet, tired eyes, and horrible recriminations.
Meanwhile, I got an e-mail from someone early in the week who was an unusual glimmer of hope in a dark, seedy world of online personals. I find myself intrigued by him (and he’s cute as hell). It never rains, it pours. I obviously won’t be able to really chat with or meet him until after I get back from Phoenix week after next. Hope my usual luck doesn’t hold true and he can wait a little while…
