Okay. So, it's exactly one week (give or take a few hours) before Alex and I are supposed to be on site for Egil's, setting up.
YAAAAAAARRRRGH! <--Happy/Stressy Noise
I am both nervous and excited. There is still much to do, but it is getting done. Most of the major scribal projects are completely finished, and I just found out at the meeting tonight that I get to do a meet-'n'-greet social-type thing with two of the Major Scribes in the area. SQUEE! I will be calm and professional and not fangirl them, I promise. Her Excellency is awesome and wins at life. Alex is putting together everything that we will need for Gate. Everybody is pulling together to make this event happen, and it just makes me so proud to be part of Adiantum.
I also have a Scribal
Helper who wants to be my Deputy and stuff. She's never been to an event, but she and her husband (who has also never been to an event) are already sooo into the SCA it's not funny. They're coming to archery practice with us tomorrow. This fills me with glee. (The amusing thing is that the aforementioned Helper has already called herself "Elfie's Scribal Slave" in public. She is a darling, charming person, and she and her husband will both be suitably rewarded for being so much help before their very first SCA event. But don't tell them that, if you know who they are. It's a surprise.) I can always use another Deputy, though Alex is absolutely awesome when it comes to that. To be perfectly honest, I think that our Barony got two Baronial Scribes for the price of one. Alex is definitely my full partner in this.
I have to give a presentation on Monday. It is no big deal, just 30% of my grade. Gah. No big deal, no big deal, no big deal...honestly, I only have to talk for two minutes, and I know exactly what I'm going to talk about. I just have to go through and highlight some stuff and make some notes so I remember.
and anybody else who likes to make icons, here's a little challenge:( I desire an icon. )
It is a silly icon idea, but it amuses me. If you can think of other variations that have the same idea and horrible wordplay, enjoy creating them.
And now I must sleep. The immense amounts of caffeine that I have consumed today in an effort to substitute caffeine for sleep are beginning to wear off.
*wanders off in zombie mode, growling* BRAAAAAIIIIINS! BRAAAAAIIIINS!
