Humorous speech

October 4, 2005 - Categories: !Uncategorized

Whoa, went way out of my comfort zone there. Giving in to social
pressure, I volunteered to do a humorous speech for our Toastmasters
club contest. I did a riff on my usual productivity schtick, talking
about the power of procrastination. It wasn’t a rolling-in-the-aisles
success, but it wasn’t completely horrible, either. I got at least one
or two smiles. So I guess it was just _slightly_ horrible.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Still. It was a good experience, in the way that jumping into the
cold, deep end of a pool is a good experience even if you’re just
flailing about while all these Olympic swimmers are watching you.

I guess I’ll be up for the area contest… Yikes.
