Mmmm... Toast [May. 11th, 2007|01:02 am]
tearsofzorro
So. I went to Toastmasters tonight with chebe. I was kinda sick/nervous going in (choosing namespaces sucks), but once I was in there, and had paid in as a guest, I had a really good time. I hadn't done that sort of stuff since I was 17. I even contributed to one of the table topics on if a Microsoft + Yahoo effort could kill Google. About half-way through I could feel the blood rushing to my face, and I started to stumble over my words a bit, but I made a good start, and I think it worked out well.

But yeah. I'm going back.

They seem to operate to an odd schedule though. They only have meetings from Sept to May... like an academic year. And it's 100 euro per term (2 terms per year), but I think I might join next year. It's really been a while since I've done public speaking, and I've got a feeling that regardless of my career choice, it'll come in handy.

That sounds really interesting. Considering your last attemot at Toastmastering has launched you into legendary status, it would be a shame not to do it again!

Yes, my legendary status as the long-haired gay one in the yellow shirt.

"Now making a comeback: The long-haired gay one in the yellow shirt - Still alive, trans and in a t-shirt!"

I think it's much better tagline than "This time it's interpersonal".

I would use the first one for the posters and the TV ads. The second one is shorter, so it would be better for the promotional stickers, the free postcards and the t-shirts.

I think the second works better for the tour title as well. AOIFE: This Time, It's Interpersonal.
