If you read The Egg with any regularity, you know I was in Vegas last weekend. I worked. I gambled. I came home.
Or so I thought.
Recent photos on Facebook have revealed that I not only stayed in the same hotel as a good friend and former boss –we worked together almost 20 years ago — but I unknowingly met and spoke to his then future daughter-in-law in the elevator.
What the wha??
We were all staying at the Aria Las Vegas. I was leading a workshop at a conference. When I spoke to Britt — I didn’t know her name at the time — she told me that she was getting married on 9/10/11.
She was all smiles, of course. I complimented her blonde updo and wished her all the best.
It was nice to think of weddings as I went off to work.
Little did I know — until I spied the photos today on Facebook — that I knew Britt’s future husband and in-laws. Had worked with her future father-in-law for three years. Could have scored an invite to the reception, at the very least.
It’s a small world, after all.

Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam on “The Office,” recently got married (as did John Krasinski, who plays her TV hubby, Jim).
Congrats to them both.
What makes Jenna’s wedding stand out a bit is her choice of wedding officiant — Jeff Probst, host of the ABC reality show “Survivor.”
If Jeff and Jenna are friends, that’s cool. I know lots of people who have had friends officiate at their weddings. It adds that extra something to their special day. Especially if the couple isn’t particularly religious, why not have a good friend speak the vows?
But if you’re simply looking for a celebrity host…why Jeff Probst?
Doesn’t his association with the whole “Survivor” program bring a lot of baggage to a wedding ceremony? I know if I had been a guest at Jenna’s wedding, I would have had visions of “tribal council” and “immunity challenge” and “getting voted off the island” the entire ceremony.
God forbid the couple incorporate any tropical colors or music!
Personally, I think there are a lot better choices if you want a celebrity wedding officiant. Tom Bergeron would be mine — funny, witty, quick on his feet in any situation.
Heck, Tom could officiate the wedding…and then MC the dancing at the reception…
