I'll just put up a speech we had to give about a talent we had because I really enjoyed this one. We've received the final speech for the class and boy howdy I am looking forward to the hilarity. It's an 8-10 minute speech with a media component on a controversial topic.
P.S. He gave us 3 fucking pages of controversial topics. Variety is the spice of life, eh?
I'm interested in seeing what "sources" and "facts" people use. There's been a trend of bullshit "facts" in some people's speeches. The good news? I had actual facts in mine and my speeches on not having religion taught in schools and my secular agenda if I was president went over surprisingly well.
In other news work still never fails to piss me off. Everyone is super interested in what everyone else is doing or not doing and not what they are actually getting done. Now I admit that I am not as proactive and gun ho as I was during my first year, because why bust my ass if all that will net me is "solid performer", but I still manage to get a lot done. Despite this the technically temp status coworker that has horrible body odor all day every day (He says he's aware of it, but I don't smell the attempts to hide it. I can forgive you if I smell the mixture of odor and failing deodorant) feels the need to tell me I'm "lazy." Cool story, bro.
Also, my grandmother, who turned 90 about 2 weeks ago, has taken a tumble and fractured her lower leg. Its the type of fracture that needs surgery, but at her age and her bone strength it's looking like it's a no go. She broke her hip a few years ago and the surgeon was concerned his pins would not stay in her thin bones. His words were, and I quote, "Her bones are like swiss cheese."
Tied in with the whole her pretty much refusing to eat hospital food I don't see my grandmother walking again. She was barely doing it now and if she has to spend 6 months not walking she will never get it back. The doctors also confirmed the congestive heart failure my mother and I speculated about for a year now. It will just be frustrating moving forward because even mentioning a nursing home just for rehab or the possibility of ending up at an assisted living place long term is met with her tearing you a new asshole. If she can't go back to her apartment she will be absolutely miserable.
