sucked in

I'm getting frazzled...

Still, I felt obligated to attend the Zoom meeting rehearsal for Saturday's DDO Astronomy Night. By itself, not a big deal but I was on the edge. 

I was anxious also because of sequencing: the speaker had NOT been pre-screened. So the dress rehearsal was really a tech shakedown. 

In the end, it worked out OK. Smart people involved all round and while there were tech issues we hammered them out pretty quick.

The other matter, important to me, was the Saturday plan. And my suspicion proved true. The AV and DDO team were assuming I was to be the questioner. Now that wonderful Celia is gone, who will do it? I asked if others on the DDO team had been asked. It really is their show... I shouldn't be roped in automatically. 

I asked that the DDO committee be asked. Hopefully someone will step up. I offered (like any guilty volunteer does) to be the backup.


The irony of this is not lost on me, the volunteer wrangler for the centre. We really should be less assuming and less passive-aggressive.


Woo hoo. They found a helper. I think I'm off the hook.
