I am absolutely, totally, out of my frigging mind.
I am - at least at this moment - going to play in the Hales Corners Chess Challenge XII. I have friends, a couple, who will be visiting me over the weekend of the HCCC XII and suggested to them, somewhat off the cuff, that we all play in the tournament. Never dreamed in a million years they might actually go for it. Eek!
Guess what - THEY WANT TO. What is that ancient saying about being hoisted by one's own petard? OHMYGODDESS!
My first - and probably last - ever - official chess tournament. Hmmm, unless I decide to play in the 2011 City of Montreal Chess Championships... Ach! What am I writing?
