I Was Meant for the Stage

I'll post in more detail about the Toastmasters District 53 Conference once I have fully recovered, but suffice to say, I did indeed win the Humorous Speech contest, and against some pretty stiff competition, I might add.

Here is a little travel advisory. If you ever get off the Mass Pike at Exit 2 and take Route 8 down into Connecticut and think to yourself, "Oh, I have at least a quarter tank of gas; surely there will be gas stations along the way" you would be very wrong. There isn't one for about 25 miles. Lovely scenery, though, and for a while it looked like I would be there to enjoy it for a very long time...

And what is it with New England highways and the complete lack of any kind of civilization? Jeepers.
