Wedding Panic

weather: sunny
outside: 18°C
mood: nervous/excited

No, not mine =)

Last night at around 2200h, Husband Guy and I were installing RedHat 7.3. Because Heretic (my Linux box) shares a monitor/keyboard/mouse with Demonic (my machine), I wanted to leave the switchbox on Heretic because I didn't want the installation to think that the peripherals had suddenly disappeared.

Husband Guy got an ICQ message from his Best Man, C. C is also the Best Man for T (another buddy of ours). C asked to talk to me. It turns out that T's Cantonese speaking MC bailed on him and they were panicking bricks. The wedding is this coming Saturday.

So, gee, I wonder where they can find a Cantonese speaking person who owes T a Really Big One® for making him do Cantonese MC-ing at her wedding? Gosh, I dunno... =D

Yes, it's yours truly to the rescue. =) Granted, we asked T a month or two in advance, but hey... =) I should be getting a fax today with T's family members' names and relations to him so that I can prepare.

I'm nervous. I don't do much public speaking, regardless of the language. I should be okay with the Family Introductions, I'll have it in front of me, but the spontaneous things will be harder. I shoulda done Toastmasters when I had the chance =P

I think it should be okay. The other buddy, J, who is doing the English side of it, has done MC-ing before (I think) or he says he can handle it.

Good luck with that, I'd probably get pretty nervous, but I think you'll do perfectly fine if you just remember to be your charming little self. ;)

Wow that's pretty last minute! But you seem like the kinda person who handles pressure and can pull it off. Good luck!

fun! Just remember the "fake it until you make" adage ;-) Or you could always pretend to be someone else like "what would so-and-so do?"

remember to breathe!
