Last night, the entire Management team of Halloween Horror Nights thought it would be a nifty idea to go to Chili's, for "2-for-1 drinks" before heading over to the park for Employee Preview night.

Now, let me tell you, Entertainment people...especially Entertainment people who have been working every waking moment on this event...

Can drink.

A lot.

I think that we consumed enough alcohol to rub down the Green Bay Packers last night.

And now I think I finally understand why liquor sales are so high at Horror Nights (hereafter referred to as "HHN").

The park...

Is.Very.Fun.When.You.Are.Drunk.

.

Period.

Nevermind the fact that the Haunted Houses had me screaming like Jesse Helms at an all male Rockettes review.

Oh, and the best thing...

We have a foam party this year.

It's called..."The Ooze Zone".

And guess who's venue it falls under?

Yours Truly.

We all went in it last night, and believe you me, it really is a foam party...

Not a few gallons of water mixed with "Mr. Bubble"...

But an actual, honest-to-God foam party.

You know...sometimes I feel really bad for people who spend their lives living, and working in offices.

I mean, I'm sure that many of them lead happy, and fufilling lives doing that...

...but nothing in this world could compare to the pace, and fun of working for the Theme Park industry.

I mean, goodness...how many people can say that they get paid...fairly well...to play around a foam party?

Me...

and whoever tests "Calgon".

That's about it, I think.


The only flip side is that at times, it can be very stressful.

Like tonight, for example...

We open in less than 24 hours, and have just now learned the staging for the "Opening Scaremonies". Cute, eh?

So with all the last second changes, and my cast bitching about every little thing...

It's driven me back to smoking.

Not that it was a hard sell, really...but quitting just before a major event like this was a bad idea.

So I've fallen off the wagon, as you may have noticed by the last few cigarette totals in the entries.

But once Horror Nights is over, it's Back to Quitting!!

(Uncrosses fingers.)


By the way, I'm drunk.

And most likely will be the rest of this month.

The reason for this is that my cast continues to FORCE me at gunpoint(Notice, that this is a bold-faced lie) to go out to the Orlando Ale House after we're done at night.

I don't know what type of example this sets for my employees as a whole...

...but it's sure nice when they buy me things to bribe me.

Like, last week, in rehearsals, I happened to say that my favorite lollipops were Strawberries and Cream Chupa Chups.

And what happens, but tonight one of the girls brings me a pack of Strawberries and Cream Chupa Chups.

Bribery will get.them.everywhere


In closing, I saw a wonderful sign today...

Draft Beer- 99
1 Dozen Doughnuts- $1.99
God Bless America

I'm still not quite sure if God was to bless America in the wake of national tragedy...

Or the fact that you can get beer and doughnuts in this country for just under three dollars.

Be well...
