Way back, oh, last year, I would watch Angela in action at SilCon 2006 meetings, and it was like watching a cat and dog fight...if she didn't get what she wanted, it was a Pain In The Ass...and I had to make it, somehow, work out right.
This year, I'm in charge of SilCon 2007's Staff Feed. And...the stress level is half that of SC2006.
Need to get chafing dishes instead of crock pots in place? Done.
The menu that has both a veggie and a meat option for three lunches and three dinners? Done.
Bringing up the three-body cooler for storing stuff? Done.
No stress. No drama. No "oh, I'm going to make it an issue to get my drama quotient up"...just professionals getting a job done.
Great times, and there will be some well-fed people.
