I adjudicated two debates last night, which was nice, and as far as I know, that's the end of my debating season. I'm kinda glad, because it means that my Wednesday nights are back so I can go back to Toastmasters - writing debating speeches is good, but I'm more hoping for diversity - there's a lot of ways of writing and presenting a speech, but I've only got a couple of styles at the moment, so TM should help with that.

It's kinda an odd thing that I can look at my diary and have nothing to do until...y'know, Saturday.

Haha :)
It's like the thing on the back of the new Orthodox Study Bible - something like 'the Bible of the Church and the Church of the Bible'.
