The PODIUM.

Tomorrow I will amuse the world by stepping outside my comfort zone and into oncoming traffic. I will enter the Land Of Public Speaker-ing - 400 college students at a Humanities Symposium. Start me off on something easy, why don't you?

I've depicted myself as a toddler so I can be easily forgiven.


The Huz is bringing wet wipes and a fire extinguisher just in case the unthinkable happens. Wish me luck.

    1. I spoke about empathy. It was heavily clothed in humour. They responded beautifully. Great kids.

  3. I predict success; no need for wipes, special dirigible protectors or communicators to raise Scotty on the Enterprise.

  9. As you stand on the podium and take your place in front of the lectern, just picture all the people naked. But don't laugh out loud while you are speaking. And remember, there is very little that can go wrong that hasn't happened to some speaker, somewhere, at sometime. So, even if there is an "incident" of some sort or the other you won't be the first. Eventually, you know, like in 6 months or so, everyone would stop laughing about it and move on anyway.

  10. :) I was one of those students today! You did a great job (in case you were wondering). I laughed my ass off (which never happens at a humanities function...except for "Phallocrypts and Penis Gourds"...but I only laughed because privates are HILARIOUS). Anyway, thank you for coming to Vanier, I really enjoyed myself. Also, I have been finding that the homework has been bringing me down, thanks for "waking" me up :D

    1. Hey you, thanks for taking the time to tell me so. I suspected it went well, but I'm glad to hear it from one of the students. I agree privates are HILARIOUS, even more so when approached with a serious face. Hahaha. Maybe I should include some naked stick figures in my next presentation, I'm really good at drawing those.

      Gonna go google "Phallocrypts and Penis Gourds" now. STAY AWAKE.
