Things I like Thursday

I like the fact that this is not me!



There is a hilarious link with more pictures like this that you must check out.

PS Thanks to all of you who sent good thoughts my way...the speech went well. I got a standing ovation, people said I made them cry, and then handed me checks. Yahoo!

Now (eep!) I have been invited to speak in two other places. But that is OK.

People said I was brave to go up and talk about living with mental illness, but I don't think it's so brave - my point was that no one should be embarrassed. And apparently, the point was made. Yay!

So proud of you! Soon, you'll be doing world tours. I couldn't do what you're doing. It takes courage I lack.

Congrats once again on a speech well delivered.

You are such an inspiration and I would've been one of the ones that cried and handed you a check. I love how you lose any fear you may have to deliver an important message. Admirable. Your work matters and helps people and not a lot of people can say that about what they do.

A(alledgedly) true statistic says more people are afraid of public speaking than of being dead...the joke then proceeding to say "so you are better off being the body than the one speaking at a funeral"


Jokes aside, kudos on having the courage to do something you find difficult in order to try to make like better for others

Considering the abundance of verve, good cheer, and presence of mind, and humour we see here, I'm not surprised at the response you got. Way to go. Congratulations.
