So. Blogathon is Saturday. And I still don't know where we're having it.

Because Team Venture is smaller this year - and we've been teetering on the edge of being a small enough group to stay here. But it's just become - probably - too big a group.

Which means schlepping out to Littleton, which is less convenient for everyone involved. Also means losing Adam from the pit crew, as he's not going to want to be stranded in Littleton. And it means it's much harder to get anyone else for the pit crew. "There's the whole "flaming moat" problem," feste_sylvain says, referring to the fact that most Bostonians don't venture outside of the 128 loop. (My house is T-accessible. His? Not remotely.)

So. Is anyone willing and able to take a pit crew shift in Littleton? Because emilytheslayer and feste_sylvain both have to sleep sometime. This could be the deciding factor on whether there's a Team Venture this year.

(There will likely be no Team Venture next year. Because I do not have the time and energy to keep spending on this sort of organizational crap when I have planning to do for my own 'thon, plus auctions, plus editing a novella, plus everything else I need to get done this week.)

EDIT: There is also the question of whether our non-driving teammates can even get to Littleton.

EDIT: And also all four of feste_sylvain's household will be home now, which complicates matters further.

EDIT: I will have to sleep on this.
EDIT: Divisio of the team seems necessary. Am very mediated. More tomorrow.

Now need pit crew for Boston. (And Medford?)

*sigh* I *wish* I lived out there...because I do not have the energy to do fund raising and blogathon itself, but pit crew? I am so totally interested in helping out and being pit crew (at least on those weekends that it does not conflict with celebrating anniversary with songwind....)

I'd drive out to help. But... I'd need directions. And a place to sleep. And don't know the area that well. I've never tried doing Blogathon before.

Blogathon is a serious head-trip. It's really fun, it's really exhausting, and it's really good for the soul.

If I can devise a way to get out there, I'll see if I can make it this weekend.

I would, but the in-laws will be in town.

I didn't realize you still had such a heavy need. I'd like to volunteer. Email me details of where I would be most useful (transport, cooking, et cetera).

Okay, I think this might make it easier. I am fighting off a doozy of a cold, or something worse. (What exactly I'm dealing with, given that I've been congested and exhausted and assorted other things for six months plus, is as yet unknown, because every time I see her my doctor just gives me antibiotics and tells me to go away and lose weight. :/) I'm constantly fatigued and exhausted and out-of-focus, and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to make it through Blogathon.

I have been weighing dropping out for about a week, and I believe this is the cincher. You have one less blogger to fit into wherever you're doing it. I may still drop by with cookies and hugs, if that is okay with you, wherever y'all may be.

I apologize for any drama or additional headaches a late dropout will cause you. I'm an indecisive noodle. :( And I'll miss you all a lot. And miss doing Blogathon. But I'm just not up to it.
