because it sounded like a good idea at the time
My "To Do" list for 2008 (so far):

Get revised draft of ConFusion program (and changes, listed separately) to Program Book editors, &etc. re: finishing program.

Finish prepping first volume of Heinlein screenplays and get it back to Subterranean (aiming for Jan 7).

Proof three SBIR proposals by 6 am Wed. Jan 9.

Transfer Best Editor Wiki to SFAW web server, establish style sheet and subsequently support editors in updating info.

Be Technical Lead on ASPP project for EDA (no, I won't tell you what the acronym stands for, so nyah).

Send Mike Glickson the SFOHA archive tape duplicate I promised him ages ago (whistles innocently).

Be Guest Liaison for author GoHs Scott Westerfeld and Justine Larbalestier at ConFusion, incl. making gift baskets for all GoHs (suggestions welcome). I'm ready for this-- I can tell because I just successfully typed Justine's last name --spelled correctly-- off the top of my head.

Have fun at Skencon (atdt1991's birthday weekend trip to Chicago).

Proof Ubik: The Screenplay (by Philip K. Dick) for Subterranean's reprint (by end of Jan).

Get divorced. Hopefully with a minimum of further drama and/or pain and anger, though some is inevitable.

Kick-off Crazy Idea #32 (no, I won't tell you what that is, either. No point in having codes if you just reveal them, is there?).

Put house up for sale (requires some more prep, but I'm getting pretty close).

Re-join either Monkey Rampant or soccer team or both.

Prepare second volume of Heinlein screenplays (by mid-March).

Send CD duplicates we've made thus far from SFOHA archive to deposit archives. Transfer archive catalog to database format, renew project to document individual releases for material we have and digitize entire collection. Release overdue newsletter to members.

See if I can make it to Applecon.

Continue with Dance Classes, Gym-going, Pilates, keep my injuries in check and lose another 15 lbs.

Take a Retreat and figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

Go to Penguicon

Put together a musical variety show for ApolloCon (may or may not involve more learning how to play this here guitar).

Run the Dexter-Ann Arbor 5k again.

See if I can make it to Fourth Street Fantasy con.

Be Fan GoH for Apollocon.

Help run the Masquerade at Denvention, also taking pictures to show at the Hugo Awards and heading up effort to capture audio for SFOHA.

Run in the Big Heart Big Run again - maybe a longer distance?

Chair ConFusion (2009). Offers of help still welcome. I think we need a trainee this year to head Transportation next year (must have healthy back). Learn the joys of volunteer hours before and after the con (worth doubletime!)! Come back next year as a comped department head!

Kick off Crazy Idea #41.

Write at least one review each quarter.

Possibly: go to Hawaii.

Oh, and be individually healthy while maintaining relationships with all the people I love and care about. The challenge will be worth it.

oh yes. Crazy ideas number 32 and 41 are distinct and identified.

You're doing that? Can we talk about Heinlein at Confusion?

Also, any chance you could change "Bill Higgins Annual Astronomical Slide Show" to "News from the Solar System with Bill Higgins?" I somehow never had the "what should we call this?" conversation with anyone.
