Having to Confess to Toastmasters
There's a lot of Christians in our club and one atheist. I've been approached to be president, so I sent the current senior member an e-mail stating that I would like to be, but I think she needs to realize I'm not a Christian but New Age, and that I do astrology and dreams, and I sent her a link to my website.

I just don't want there to be any misleading, because I recently did a speech contest on Easter where I talked about Jesus rising from the tomb, and I think a lot of people came to think I was a Christian--one of them, so t speak.

Our club has blacks, whites, Indians (dot and feather), an atheist...me. It's pretty eclectic. If they want me to be President, I just want them to know that comes with a fair amount of woo.

I just don't want to be the president and then have everyone regret it because I'm different and they may not have known it. Don't you think that's the right thing to do before accepting a nomination?

Now, back to bass practice. I'm learning "Lido Shuffle" by Boz Scaggs. Cool

Well Good Luck with it, hope they don't take your mystic stuff against you since that doesn't seem to be what the club is about (it's a drinking club right I honestly don't know). Probably was a good idea to get that out in front and deal with it now rather than have a bunch of hurt feelings and toes stepped on.

There is only one type of "indian", Egor, and they are from India. Those who were native to the americas are Native American.

It's pretty fuckin' simple. And now you've got my post-workout hormones raging. Dodgy

Fucking christ; why is he still here? Why are any of them still here?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

maybe you could have everyone do a biographical speech and you can explain your woo all out in the open to them.

Feathers?
Really?

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

This sounds rather similar to a little girl having a tea party with her dolls.
