taff time again?

I really need to update my blog more. The run from Worldcon to now has been “work frantic work frantic stomach bug” and that’s what I’ve been dealing with. Plus, I’m trying to write a con report.

Anyway, two years ago, I wrote Waiting For TAFF (LJ version). And guess what? It’s TAFF time again!

So, I said I’d re-evaluate for the 2012 race when it came around, although I’ve already discussed this with some people at Worldcon. While point #1 in my original post is pretty much null and void — I suspect I could get more than the required amount of nominators if I just poked around and looked interested — the other two points are still relevant. I’m still at the same dead-end part-time job, and I’m still reliant on good old Uncle Sam to provide me a bit of money, and more importantly, my health care. So I’m going to hold again.

(Unless, of course, folks are really desperate for a patsy to have a race, in which case I’ll stand with Sherman’s words as my platform: “If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve.”)

2014 looks more promising in terms of my own situation even though it looks like it’s going to be a hell of a race given the Worldcon situation.

But hey, fandom! Look! It’s a TAFF race! To the UK! It’ll be awesome, if everybody I’ve met who has done it is telling me the truth.
