Well, tonight I am going to our company'* annual epmployee appreciation banquet downtown. This is an all company black tie event. Usually they dish out LOTS of prizes and other fun stuff to everyone.
Now the "nerve wrecking" part for me tonight is the fact that out of 2600+ employees, I made the final 12 for employee of the year. The bright side is that employee of the year gets compensated by the company very nicely with monet and little perks for only them. The down side is if I were to win, I would possibly need to make a short acceptance speach. I'm not a big fan of public speaking.
Even if I don't get EOtY, I still might make one of the 5 runners up (who for a little committe for the EOtY) and they also get rewarded, but not quite as nice as the EOtY.
So now it'* time for me to start getting ready for tonight. Wish me luck!
