I was appointed Scribe Nehemiah last night. This means that, all things being equal, in the run-up to the next council elections I'll be sweating over installing my successor as Z, which might be happening on 6th May 2011. (I'd previously done SN, J and H but not Z or IPZ, a while ago -- a process that was interrupted by things that were going on with scarlatti and me.)
If you didn't understand that previous paragraph... well, let's say that it doesn't qualify as "avoiding unnecessary stresses".
In other news, I'm off to Wyvern Lodge Ladies Festival tonight, in Leicester. See some of you there.
