DW rise up

Impossible Tasks Made Simple!

"He knew what he had to do. It was, of course, an impossible task. But he was used to impossible tasks. ... The way to deal with an impossible task was to chop it down into a number of merely very difficult tasks, and break each one of them into a group of horribly hard tasks, and each one of them into tricky jobs, and each one of them..."

Terry Pratchett, Truckers

Well it's true, isn't it?

The good news? My impossible tasks list for the convention is about to be slightly shorter. I do have a few "horribly hard" tasks and a good number of "tricky jobs" still going on, though. Heh.

Do you know, sometimes I can't believe it's been four whole years since I inadvertently volunteered myself to help run an American Discworld convention, and sometimes I can't believe it's been only four years since this all started. I.e. sometimes it feels like just yesterday that I was in Olsson's asking a silly question, and sometimes it feels like I've been waiting for the convention to arrive forever! Hrm.

In other things...oh wait, there ARE no other things. Because as I wrote Nathan yesterday, my brain has been taken over by convention monsters. And I sincerely doubt they will relinquish it until sometime after September 8th.
