Yesterday & today


Not a bad first day back yesterday. I cleared up my inbox by 11:00 a.m., and 95% of it was stuff I didn't need to respond to. Evidently nothing blew up while I was gone, so that was a relief. Only downside was that Michelle got thwacked in the face with a softball and will be out for a couple of days. Bummer. Last night I started the arduous task of post-Pennsic laundry. I figure I've got about a dozen loads to do. Ugh. Ended up going to bed right on time, too - t'was a tired puppy.

Today was a pretty good day as well. Got some stuff done in my nice clean office (I made sure everything was filed away when I left and it made for a nice clean sweep). I spent a good portion of the day updating the LYC - San Diego website since the people who keep saying they're going to haven't yet, and it gave me an excuse to try some new web editors (nothing memorable, but they got the job done). After work lenniersdHans, Bill, thomasmMyke, darkscydeDaniel and I played Cthulhu 500 and Burn Rate while I continued to do laundry. Only got to say goodnight to Q, though, since he was heading to bed and we were just getting started, but I'll talk to him more tomorrow night.

The fallout from our encampment personality conflicts has started. Although I'd hoped to be more politic and put some salve on some wounds, others beat me to the punch and started pouring salt left and right. Caleb predicts we will lose both campmates and possibly some friends out of all this, and I fear he may be right, although I'm hoping with some sensible, adult ministrations I'll be able to minimize the impact on future years' encampments. Aieee!

I'm surprised, it seemed to me like everyone was getting along great.

Meh, a few interpersonal conflicts (plus the Berlin Wall) created some drama. As camp master I'm trying to play peacemaker, but emotions are running high at the moment. It'll pass.

I hope everyone can work things out. I had such a good time with everyone and looking forward to next year--I would hate to lose that.

Don't imagine past years have been like this. Sure, there's always psychodrama at Pennsic, but we pride ourselves on being a psychodrama managed zone, and this year it just got a little out of hand. If anything I think the encampment e-mail list will help since things won't fester another 50 weeks until we show up still hating each other next year.

It's all good. I have faith. :)
