Tomorrow is D-Day

Sorry for the light, or rather, relatively brainless posting this week so far.   I’m off for the rest of the week from work.   Tomorrow I get my crown lengthening done, which leaves me in great angst, since I fear any unknown major dental procedure.  But the periodontist told me that I should plan to take the rest of the day off work, and who am I to complain?

In the evening, I have a club meeting to attend where I have to try to convince our board that, at an NRA affiliated club, the NRA ought to be allowed to come and answer questions and address member concerns before our club votes to end the 100% member requirement.  I’m not very good at this type of public speaking, so it make me rather nervous.  Throw the fact that I don’t know how well I’ll even be able to speak after the dentist, and it gets even worse.

After that, it’s off to Virginia.   I plan to attend at least one session of the NRA board of directors meeting (it’s open to all members, actually, if you ever have time to attend, it might be worth your while).   But of course, that’s not the only reason to go; it’s also a good place to meet up with fellow bloggers.

Friday we’re coming back up here.  Bitchy Mom and Bitter’s grandmother are coming up to do the Philly thing.   All in all a very busy week, I’m afraid.   Which translates into more “linky no thinky”.

    If you have a problem talking, you can use one of those computer voice synthesizer things.

    There won’t be any problems with talking. I’m fine, and the pain so far is pretty mild.

    Talk to your club like you’re talking to your friends, relaxed and conversational and don’t forget to make lots of eye contact with your audience. I’ve found that helps keep me focused on talking to the group as though I’m talking to an individual.
