Permanent Tourist

[-begin transmission-]

Now that the job search is over, I've been able to turn my attentions toward more pleasant things. Like posting photos over on Theme Park Review.

As you may have already been aware, I had a Smoky Mountain Adventures thread over there last year, in which I detailed all the crazy tourist attractions available in and around Pigeon Forge. That thread, by necessity, was ended when we moved to Orlando. But now I have a new one for Florida:

Erik & Smisty's Florida Oddventures

So far, I've posted photos from Walt Disney World, St. Augustine, and McDonald's. So you know it has to be good.

Mare Tranquillitatis

[-begin transmission-]

Hey everybody, I have a job!

I don't start for, like, two weeks--but still, at least I can relax a little bit now, mentally.

I applied at quite a few hotels, since I have so much recent experience with that (and I knew it would pay better). But what I really wanted to do was return to the parks (money be damned). Preferably, SeaWorld.

Anyway, it took a month, but they finally called me. Hooray!

This will be my second stint with the company. I worked in guest services at Discovery Cove about four years ago, before relocating to Tennessee. So it seems only appropriate to go back to work for them now that I live in Orlando again. It's a different actual job this time, though.

I am a "security ambassador."

No, I'm not really sure what it means, either. But as long as it doesn't involve food or toilets, I'm good.

So if you want to bring a bag into SeaWorld, look me up. I'll poke it with a stick for you.
