Honored as I was to be asked to MC the annual awards gala for the Art Directors Club of Metropolitan Washington, it did little to negate my natural goofiness once behind the mic. Minor highlights of the evening included my eating a sugar cookie while talking and then proceeding to mimic an african mask artifact via opening my mouth as wide as is possible (oh lordy is it a big gapper) while cookie crumbles escaped from my gullet – sorry front row! I awarded Wayne Curie with the best outfit for the night with his dapper matching short sleeve dress shirt and tie – the natty little fella. And big apologies to Angela Terry who I attempted to close out the evening by hugging and instead soaked with water and proceeded to smash a glas in dramatic fashion at her feet, even managing to get glass in-between her toes in her kicky little heel number.
Of course I am forgetting the true “spotlight dance” moment as Neal Ashby (of Neal Ashby fame and teased early in the evening for sipping cappuccino with his tiny italian boots dangling) laid a big liplock on me mouth to mouth upon receiving his award. He later reported that I was a little “pokey” around the hotlips.
I am of course available for mizvahs of any kind…
