Confessions of a desperate actor with a bad case of island fever.

Sunday, August 06, 2006


I've been thinking more and more about leaving and starting anew lately. The idea is becoming more and more appealing by the day. The thought of waking up in a room, in my own apartment, in a diverse, metropolis every day sounds magically delicious! It will be the change I have been searching for.


I will take dance classes and walk to my local gym everyday. After which, I will pay my little organic grocer a visit. We know each other by will be:

"Good morning, Tito!"

"Oh good morning, Jessie! Where are you off to today?"

"The Internet Cafe! I just finished reading the most WONDERFUL blog about a mermaid and a sexy young gay man in Ottawa!"

"That's nice! Marie! The Baguettes!"

Then I will skip and sing to the sound of honking car horns and angry taxi cab drivers. I will jay walk and people will give me the finger and I will smile and sing, "THE SKY-SCRAPERS ARE ALIVE, WITH THE SOUND of MUSIC!!"

People will think something is wrong with wait, what am I saying.....No one will notice me at all!!!!!!!!!!! I can finally pretend I'm in my own music video.......I'll buy roller skates and booty shorts and skate through central park wearing a tina turner wig!!

I will be unconfined, unfettered! I will be like a young tigress set free in the African plains, galloping off into the blazing African sunset! Liberation! Emancipation!!!!!!!!

eeeeee...there really are ants dancing in my pants right now!

Yeah! Set yourself free! I want to go too! And I probably will! My plan is to at least visit NY if not get the nerve to audition for something this year. I'll be looking for someone who looks like Tina Turner.

You are awesome. I love the concept of a soundtrack for real life, and you just described a scene that would work perfectly in a song! ENJOY!
