1 Order Hummus and Crackers
1 Entire Pizza
1 Liter Coke
The infamous "Poodle Hat".
Well, not really infamous, as I've never talked about it on here.
*Not at all live
Not to sound conceited, but I'm fairly positive that the members of *NSYNC are stalking me.
Orlando is an interesting place, as most of the time, there's a good chance of spotting a celebrity anywhere you go.
However, bumping into the "Bye Bye Bye" boys as often as I do is going from coincidental, to creepy.
I'm in Blockbuster, Justin and Joey are in front of me.
I'm at Disney, I'm assigned to their concert production crew.
I'm at Universal, and Lance is there every night during Halloween.
Then, I'm at Gap yesterday, and JC shows up, supposedly out of the blue, and purchases the very leather jacket which I was wearing.
Now, I know that they're just a budding, local group, but I think that they should have better things to do with their time then to constantly follow me all around town.
Yesterday, my parents arrived in Orlando, before continuing on to Tampa, then finally up to New York. When they got into town, I was at work, so they had about 4 hours to kill.
On my lunch break, I called them, just to see how, and what they were doing.
"Oh, we're at the gift shop, at 'Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine', we thought we'd do some browsing."
I love my parents...
With 7 theme parks, over 11 malls, a hundred movie theatres, and much, much more right here in Orlando, they're browsing...
In a church...
No, in a church gift shop.
Once they met up with me, we took a little trip down to "The Cheesecake Factory" for dinner.
As we were dining, I was describing the events of the previous evening, when one of my managers got engaged.
As I was reliving this, my sister interrupts with, "And what about you? When are you going to find a woman? Or, you know, you could be on the other side, and find a man."
The mood of the table suddenly shifted to an awkward, tense silence.
It was as if Hitler had suddenly farted loudly in a synagogue on a high holy day.
"Mary, don't be inappropriate."
Was the answer from my father.
I'm not quite sure whether that was a statement in my defense, or just a jab at how the idea of homosexuality is "inappropriate".
Interesting fact, turns out I went to the same school as "Steve", the guy from the Dell Computer commercials. I don't know what it means, but it makes me feel pretty cool.
As I leave for the coast tomorrrow, this is likely my last entry until at least Wendesday, so I'd like to take the time to say Happy Holidays to everyone, and thank you all for continuing to read about my life. I wish that there was some sort of gift I could give everyone, but without a good deal of money, and a frighteningly sophisticated way of tracking down each and every one of you, all I can do is say...
Be safe, be happy, and...
