my first ever blog post from orlando!

I know, you've been waiting a long time for me to blog from Orlando, and it's dream come true time guys!!

This is my first time in Orlando. I'm here for an acting gig that is the same as an acting gig I mentioned before on this blog. The one where I grow a goatee (which I have right now and have a tendency to lick from time to time.) Unfortunately, I don't have a car. Which means that my trip to Orlando is essentially confined to here. Which is actually quite pretty. It sort of reminds me of a casino without a casino. And there's a pretty golf course. Nice pools. And a nature walk into the swamp where I did, indeed, see an alligator. Rather, I heard the alligator jump into the water (from near where I was walking) and then saw her swimming away. SCARY. But fun.

Now, I know there's a lot to do here. "The Parks" as they've been referred to by locals. Everything to do in Orlando appears to have been constructed. And holy crap it's expensive. I'm also by myself. Now, I try going to bars by myself and I have to muster every ounce of energy to stay in the place and act cool. (The drink goes down very fast). I'm not sure if I can do a theme park by myself. Walking around would be OK. But, I think waiting in line would be incredibly awkward. Even if it is perfectly acceptable for grown men to go stag to family oriented destinations, I still feel like I would look suspicious. Did I mention I have a goatee right now? Beyond the social awkwardness, I think experiences like that also make me feel awfully, painfully alone.

So I think this trip to Orlando will honestly start at end at the hotel. It's fine though. I wrote 8 pages of my play today!!!! Perhaps, for sake of adventure, I'll hop in a cab and at least head to mall.

Enjoy the sunshine state. I used to go on a lot of trips alone for work back in the day (meaning over six years ago) and I did quite a few movies alone or watched pay per view. Hmm...what advice can I offer. None. Take up sudoku, maybe?

Hmm sudoku. I'm scared. I had a 5 months of an intense tetris addiction in college. I'm worried for similar happenings.
