Whew, am I ever glad that's over! I was nervous nervous nervous to take to the Bitter End stage and perform in front of my whole office, but it was so much fun! The judges had only nice things to say about my performance, and lo and behold I came in 2nd. Since my only hope for the evening was not to get fired for sucking, 2nd place came as quite a welcome surprise. (Aside: the guy who won better watch out, because I get to take his place as Agency Idol champ if he mysteriously disappears. Just kidding - great job, Rob!)
From here on out, Eddie Money's Take Me Home Tonight will remind me of my one magical evening as an Agency Idol... the band was awesome, the performers went all out, the show was hilarious, my colleagues were so supportive (like a bra!) and all-in-all, it was one of my favorite days as a Weber Shandwick employee. Lovethisplace.
I am pretty sure video (and audio, oye) footage would only serve to ruin my life, but we'll see about putting up a few snippets here and there. Maybe. I should have more pictures to share in the coming days, so stay tuned!
