Tonight I did my first show as MC of the Chinese Pavilion at Folklorama. Yay! It was lots of fun, especially because I love dressing up in my beeea-utiful Chinese qipao. I was a bit nervous actually; I realised this was the first time I'd been on stage since one of those horrible jr high musical productions. But nobody there knows me. They don't know I hate public speaking (I agreed to mc in an effort to confront my fear). For all they know I thrive on it. I just have to pretend I enjoy 300 pairs of eyes staring at me. But my job wasn't difficult, just introducing the acts etc. I did fine. I didn't screw up any lines, didn't trip or fall down, my dress didn't spontaneously burst open... nope, nothing embarrassing whatsoever. I liked it. I'll be doing it again tomorrow and Thursday night. By that time I'll be a pro. They already told me I can MC again in the future. Right on, give it up for the hostess with the mostess: MC MANDERS loves the spotlight!
