It's going to be so incredibly difficult to choose which presentations to attend! There are a lot of good ones at conflicting times. And at the rate my preparation is going, I may need to use a few time slots for last-minute prep.

Prophecy's going to be a blast, in any event. And I'm quite honored to see you're planning to come to two of my presentations. See you there!

[I'm sad that they put John's "Rubedo" talk at the same time as my "Voldemort" talk. I want to skip my own presentations to hear that one!]
