 Gave impromptu unscripted alma mater boosterism at SLC reception tonight, did not make too much of an ass of self, I hope. Certain parts were a little wobbly, but managed to avoid hemming and hawing and repeating myself over and over, and did not employ "like." There is a place for "like," of course, particularly when telling sardonic stories, but that place is not public speaking and certainly not in front of people one wishes to impress.

Got my Fire on. I think pretty well. And oh, they were all so fresh-faced and cute with their nervous eyes, trying to get as much information as possible to make this momentous decision-- and it is important, though not always in the ways we think. I felt a great outpouring of paternal affection, or at least as close to it as I ever get.
