Definitely interesting to see what comes of this.

Good for you!  TM is one of the best organizations I know for personal and professional growth. :)

Of course, winning last night's humorous speech contest means I have to prepare for the area contest in two weeks.  A couple of tweaks to my speech, and I should be even better.  Maybe I'll even beat the gal who beat me last year. ;D

I could have submitted my humorous contest speech for the Tall Tales contest if only it weren't a true story and my district actually conducted Tall Tales contests.  What was your speech about?

It was called "How I Really Lost The Weight" about a series of evetns leading to my fabulous weight loss of the prior year - the tale involved a defective treadmill, a coma, and an unsuccessful liposuction.

Unfortunately I think this year's attempt will have to be "How I Really Gained BACK all that weight!!"

I guess, then, that I could make my tall tale about real life events, the likes of which constitute my humorous speech.  My current speech, "A Night on Patrol," is about that Halloween night I worked on the campus security patrol back in my college days.  The paintball sniper who had me always in his sights...  A squad of young men on an undie run...  A trio of young men following me around and mooning me whenever they had the chance...  Classic Halloween hijinks on a college campus.

I dreamed that I was having a nightmare, but in my dream I was afraid to wake myself up because then if I woke up for real I might find that the nightmare was real. It's weird when you dream that you're dreaming.

I really wish I could remember my dreams.  I don't even have the slightest recollection of them when I awake in the morning.  One moment it is night and I feel groggy, and then what seems like an instant, it is morning and my alarm is on.

I hate it when I have a test in less than 8 hours, need to look over the material again, but have absolutely no inclination to study. It's even worse when one component of the test was a take home assignment that I also have no inclination to do.

Pretty good. Thanks for asking :) Just bouncing between agnosticism and Orthodoxy like has been normal for the last nearly 5 years. I guess I'll get straightened out eventually, whatever the truth is :police: 

Regarding jury duty, sorry that you were in such a difficult position. I've been told many times that I might have to serve, but I only ever had to go to the courthouse once, and we were all dismissed without having to be involved with a case. I imagine it's hard to have the responsibility, especially as the potential consequences for the people involved increase.

Round 2 tonight...  Competing against speakers from as many as four clubs outside of my own.

How'd it go?
I won. ;D (My nerdy brand of humor got a lot of laughs. :laugh:) Next round: the division contest on October 21. If I win that, I go on to the District 7 finals.

Cool :) Good luck!
