Tuesday Night Grab Bag O’ Thoughts

I.  It’s Tuesday night in my world, so you just KNOW what THAT means. It means that it’s the start of a fresh new week of blogging here at ‘The Major’s Life Blog’. See I couldn’t really say that when I was blogging 7 days a week, as there was no real start or end to any given week of blogging. Now that I’ve got Sundays and Mondays off there’s a clear start (Tuesdays) and a definite end (Saturdays). I can’t think of a better way to kickstart a fresh new week of blogging than with the flagship weekly series of this blog – one of the true originals from 2007 – my ‘Tuesday Night Grab Bag O’ Thoughts’. It’s a miscellaneous assortment or ‘Grab Bag’ of three of the most relevent aspects of my Life today. It’s what’s happenin’ dude !

II.  Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are my ‘nights off’ during the work week nowadays. Those are the nights that I can stay at home and watch the television, do the laundry, pay the bills, surf the web, and blog my Life. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I’m making public appearances. Tuesday nights are Toastmasters nights, and tonight is no exception. My role for tonight is the host of ‘Table Topics’. That’s where I get up in front of everyone, go to the podium, and lead our group into a lively question and answer session based on a script that I’ve written. I’ll be asking 5 to 7 questions to 5 to 7 of my unsuspecting labmates, and they will instantly have to stand up one at a time and give a spontaneous 1 to 2 minute response to my question. It’s actually harder than it sounds, but it’s a lot of fun because when you speak spontaneously you tend to speak more truthfully than you would when you have ample time to think about your response. I’m counting on more than just a smattering of giggles tonight. I’m looking for some outright chuckles and crack-ups tonight !

III.  Happy Groundhog Day my friends. I saw my shadow this morning, so that can mean only one thing. Light was shining in my general direction and my body was blocking that light from continuing on in a straight line. I know that there are lots of people in this country who actually believe that a groundhog up in the Amish country of Pennsylvania can forecast the weather for the entire free nation for the next 6 weeks. It’s a cute little tradition. You can even buy greeting cards to celebrate the groundhog on his very special day. While Groundhog Day is cute – global warming / climate change is not. I stand by my own humble opinion that it is the single greatest hoax created and distributed by mankind in modern world history. There are a lot of people in this world that are making a hefty sum of money based on this greatest hoax ever. There are so many different ways that one can change the world to make it a better place for all. Falling for the entire global warming / climate change hoax is taking the easy way out. It’s being lazy. Make a real change. Save a Life !

    Joining Toastmasters was one of the best ideas that anyone around me suggested to me in 2009. Thank You Travis for real change I can believe in on Tuesday nights – making new friends and strengthening one of my greatest weaknesses – public speaking. I dig.
