I’m running down my to-do lists (Hint. Think: longer than my arm) for the upcoming Mayhem leatherwomen’s conference, and was struck by my own rather extreme mixture of exhilaration and trepidation as the event draws ever closer.
It’s kinda crazy to think about. We’ve put together a full-scale conference in just a hair under four months. We’re sold out. At over 200 participants, we’ll easily be the biggest leatherwomen’s event ever in Western Canada, and possibly in all of Canada. We’re sold out, did I mention? We have people coming from all over, and some crazy-ass plans for fun stuff over the weekend, and… wow, we’re a handful of leatherdykes and we’re actually doing this, so yay us, and yay all the lovely people who are coming from ALL OVER, who I can’t WAIT to see and meet and run around a party with.
So that’s the excitement.
And on the fear side, I can list the very same list.
I’m in mortal fear of having forgotten something Very Important. I’ve never done something of this scale and duration before, although I comfort myself that it can’t be more overwhelming than that party where I had 60 dykes in my tiny little house back in the early 2000′s. I mean, the venues are So Much Bigger. Right?
On the humourous side, I have lost one of my to-do lists, somewhere on my desk.
One of the items on my current to-do list: find that to-do list.
Speaking of which, I need to start checking things off again. What’s next?
