Toast of Mensa
Yep. I just had to add another activity to my already weird-looking calendar. I just feel like it’s not full enough. Know what I mean?
I got invited to my first Toast of Mensa meeting last month. I had misgivings at first, thinking that it was going to be full of straight-laced nerds in formal attire. (Don’t get me wrong…I appreciate art, literature, poetry and mathematics. But one can only take so much Dawson’s Creek in any given day.) I was in for a total shock when I realized that they were a fun bunch. They were wacky and naughty and full of…um, geeky humor.
I was amazed when I saw them laughing at Nicco’s jokes. Nicco’s known for his “bizarre humor” and I usually worry about him saying the wrong thing around “normal” people. But not here. It’s comforting to know that I’m not the only person who finds him witty and charming.
I also discovered a gold mine of resources for my thesis in this club. So yeah…I formalized my membership yesterday.

Hello TM Bea… 🙂
Wasn’t it the Molave group you wanted to join? They’re kinda reserved and quiet although they’re quite intelligent too.

No, it was another group…but I guess I’ll stay where I am, El Presidente TMC…although I haven’t been able to attend lately cause it conflicts with my thursday class.

Wow buti ka pa naka-attend na ng ToM. I was a member for some number of years when I was in college and I’ve never been to one… XD
