Josh: bright eyes

In my classroom, I am the law

And don't ask about my secret plan to fight inflation. It's not funny any more.

Josh: ask me about my secret plan

OOC: Welcome back, Josh!


Everyone say hello to your newest speech teacher, Joshua Lyman. He's thrilled to be here again!

...he'll be slightly less thrilled once he sees the pink pony and her party cannon.

Josh is coming in post-canon for The West Wing, which means he was the Deputy Chief of Staff for President Bartlet for eight years, then Chief of Staff for President Santos for four. This makes Josh (*sob*) in his early fifties now, so his hair has receded more, but his dimples are still pretty prominent. He's also, yes, still as convinced he's brilliant and always right as he's ever been. He's back to teaching because he's a little burned out on the 24/7-never sleeping-never seeing Donna thing but he refuses to become a consultant. Ugh, consultants.

Speech class will cover various places where people will find themselves speaking in public, so in addition to speeches where he gives you the topic in advance and debates where he'll also give you the topic in advance, he will be chosing one lucky sucker every week to become the press secretary, stand behind the rostrum, and make up answers to whatever questions their classmates might be throwing at them.

Mine is an evil laugh.

I'm looking for one or two Donnas TA's Josh will call Donna to help Josh corral what will hopefully be a very interactive class. If you're interested in volunteering, toss your name into ye olde screened comments section of this post!

JOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSH!!!!!

JOSH!!!!!!!!

So excited to see him back. Especially since I just signed up for Amazon Prime and the first thing I'm watching is West Wing.

I was just watching the Season 1 episode where Sam's talking about gays in the military and everyone's all "yeah, this is never going to go anywhere" and I was SO FREAKING HAPPY they were wrong.

I keep getting told it's tragic that I've never heard of Josh before and now I am VERY EXCITED FOR THE JOSH.

YOU SHOULD BE. HE'S A LOT OF FUN.

Not Eric-kicking-people-across-the-bar-just-'cause fun, but fun!

I HAVE TO WATCH THE SHOW 'CAUSE KRISTIN CHENOWETH GUSHED ABOUT IT IN HER AUTOBIOGRAPHY. And also 'cause Josh.

Quit getting me to want to watch your canons, woman.

WAIT WAIT LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW OUR JOSH OR YOU'VE NEVER SEEN WEST WING BECAUSE ONE OF THESE NEEDS TO GET FIXED IMMEDIATELY OMG OMG.

JOOOOOOSH!!!! <3 <3
