Once again, for like the 5th year in a row, I will serve as emcee for the event.
Being a natural ham, I'm the perfect kind of guy for the gig. I'm also quite extemporaneous and locquacious, which is needed in a good emcee.
This also means I have to get a ton of stuff done over the next day and a half, as we set very early deadlines on the day of the party so as many employees as possible can attend. Remember, I work for a daily newspaper. There has to be a paper put out every day, and it has have actual news in it, so we can't shut down for a day, not even for the Christmas party ... heck, not even for Christmas.
So, I'm cutting back slightly on my World of Warcraft (heh) and giving up a little sleep over the next few days to get set.
And then the weekend will be pretty full for me too; I have to get some work projects finished up before Monday.
Hope you're not going to be as busy as me ... bleah.
