Big Show blues
Another horse show is coming this weekend, and this is the big one of the season, three times as big and nine times as hectic as the last one. Ted (an old school friend, now a CSE student at Brunel, whose mother runs the whole shebang) and I were going to write a (idiot-proof, notwithstanding Murphy's Law) database system to make being show secretary nine times easier, making event cards automatically (printing them off just as the runners came to get them, including all the late entries), but today is Thursday, the show is on Sunday and we probably won't get it done in time even for the fun show in two weeks. Sigh.
Of course, making paperwork easier doesn't make it any more fun to deal with the legion of idiots that is the public hundreds of times before lunch, with the sun burning your skin like it inevitably does despite there being a tent in the way. Oh for a bit of rain... but that would make the ground boggy and cause injuries and more paperwork, sigh.
But at least I'm not responsible for that sort of paperwork :)
