Live from Vegas

I'm sitting here in my room at The Venetian minutes away from leaving for the Emmy Awards for Technology and Engineering. I have to say that I'm going through so many emotions right now. I'm part nervous, part excited, part relaxed, and part ready to get this over with. I don't really know what to think except that I can't wait for the moment where they announce the winner.

A few weeks ago, I was told by a few of the managers at work that should we win, I will be giving the acceptance speech since I've been so close to Pipeline for a couple of years now. I feel honored that they would want me to do such a thing except that it's making me nervous as shit right now. I'm not a huge fan of giving speeches, but this is a little different since if I have to give it, it means that I just won an Emmy. I think at that point my excitement will overcome my nervousness.

I have to go down now, but if anyone has any desire to watch live online, here's the link to do so:

Whatever will happen, will happen.

Wish me luck!
