Restraint is tough. I think this is mostly out of my system, though. Mostly.
FUN FACT: While definitely not as amusing as I think I am, I’m mostly just confusing without a rudimentary vocabulary in American Sign Language, French, the Simpsons, and typefaces. I may’ve crossed the line into alienating. There’s not a trombone in the world sad enough to punctuate that thought.
I was thinking the other night that, of the many schools I am applying to work at, I’m not applying to the school where I gave that talk during which I formulated the title “Silent Public Speaking: What I Learned When I Learned To Sign (My Experience as a Sign Linguist)”. Bummer! I could still do it. I could do it 9 times. Once would be enough. The ASL translator did not appreciate how many times I said “spectrometry” in a 1 minute period. I should have warned her.
