I have no intention of diverting my attention from writing to speeching, however.
But, I did go along to their last meeting of the year, which included a holiday potluck, and as a bonus I brought along Chad's (okay, my) contribution to the spread. And it was a great spread, by the way; the food was fabulous.
|None of this at the Toastmasters|
Many of them recognised me, because Chad illustrated his "introduction" speech with a picture of me making a strange face, and the Su-ness came through enough that the gang knew who I was. There were speeches, there were critiques, and they all addressed me formally as "Honoured Guest" when speaking. Nice.
Altogether, they're a fun bunch. And I can definitely see the importance of improving one's speech-making skills, but as already mentioned, I'm currently occupied with writing. Besides, I've had a couple of brilliant speech teachers in my life (one in high school--really!, and one in college).
And on the way home, I found out how to get to Hobby Lobby. Now, there's information I can use.
