"I'm too sexy for my voice,
Too sexy for my voice,
Its gonna leave me..."
(sung in tune of "I'm too sexy" by that Village People Policeman look-alike guy)
For those of you who tuned in to the 6am Caltex Score Today, I sincerely apologise for sounding like an, er, adult telephone line receptionist. This was what happened:
I only realised that I lost my voice at approximately 10pm last night, when I tried to call my cats to be fed. I thought it was just my throat acting up, but when it didn't come back within half an hour I started panicking.
So I called my manager, asked him what I should do... and in the mean time I tried to get the numbers of the other Score Today presenters, and the ESPN lady whom I normally liase with. No one picks up except Jamie Yeo who's recording something in the UK. That was an interesting conversation though I tried to tell her who I was in my voice-less state. I think I freaked her out so I just hung up and texted her.
Anyhoo - so I only get a few hours of sleep throughout the night as I'm coughing half the time, and I wake up and come into work in time for the first Score Today. My producers are currently waiting for the replacement (Debbie) to come in, but I'll be staying here in the mean time should she not get here before the 8am live shoot.
What the hell did I do that was so stressful yesterday lah? I also dont know. All I did was: Get a foor massage, get a head massage, got my full body massage + hot wax wrap, did the groceries, bought some catlitter, and watch tv!! I didn't even meet up with anyone, I just relished in the joy of having *nothing* to do. And a few hours later, I lost my voice. Sheesh.
How la. Tomorrow is the toa pa yoh auditions. How am I going to get well enough to be talking the whole day. :(
So yes. No coffee, as its heaty. I'm finally going to the doctor later this morning, I'll be dropping by my Uni, then from 5-7pm I have an event that I had promised to attend. Will be talking as little as I can in all of them.
...a latte would be sooooo good right now.
