    John stood up to make a toast

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    John stood up to make a toast, but once he started, he could not stop. His meandering speech went on and on and drew furious glances from the guests and the host, who was cursing himself to have invited him into his home in the first place.

    The host would curse himself for having​ invited his boorish guest.
