filched from the digi-ek e-group message archive:
It's hard to host but it's even harder to emcee to a gathering
of writers. Feeling ko ine-edit ako for every word I say!...
During the wedding reception, that part where the couple is asked
to say a few words, a radiant May, in a tongue-in-cheek manner,
said: "This is one of the better weddings I've attended..." Alcuin
borrowed her mike to interject: "Because it's yours, Sweetie!"
("Uuuuy!" vibe from the audience.) Even bestman Jon who, as Mads
would put it, is built like an action figure gushed: "Ang sweet
namaaan. Kakainggit namaaan!"
Congratulations for pulling off your "New York Wedding" (editors
talaga sila, cutting out parts like the bouquet/garter toss to
the relief of the singles.)
A bit of trivia: We learned from the priest (with the same surname
as Alcuin) that the church in New York, Cubao is where May's parents
exchanged their own vows.
As for info you can use, if you Kule people ever need a wedding
reception emcee and speaker at a minute's notice, Jay and Barry
(thinking on their feet) proved to be up to the surprise tasks hehe.
