Observations: Vacation, Day 1

Standard

I’m finding that laying by the pool, staring up at palm trees while dark ambient/industrial Christmas songs play through my ear buds to be a rather surrealistic experience.

(To put this statement into context, I live in the northeast, where the the weather is starting to turn cold, the trees are almost bare, our winters are known to be icy and snowy, and palm trees are nowhere to be found. Also, before we left, I loaded up my mp3 player with new Christmas songs to try out for inclusion on this year’s holiday playlist, Do Android Dream of a White Nose Christmas, vol 3.)

Also by the pool, my wife noticed a large  bird flying far off in the distance.  She thought it may have been a hawk. Then we saw a second bird, and we noticed they were circling. Our thoughts then turned to vultures, circling vultures…

In Fallout 3 & New Vegas, circling vultures always meant a settlement, but we’re a far ways off from the Capitol Wasteland so it couldn’t be Megaton…  Oh man, how cool would it be if they made a Fallout game set in Orlando? So many recognizable landmarks, I wonder what the writers would call all the different Disney properties. Maybe each theme park could be home to different rival tribes.  Animal Kingdom could be populated by Super Mutants and other mutated animals that all worship the remnants of the giant tree.  Magic Kingdom could have a gang of raiders controlling the castle, with the Pirates of the Caribbean infested with mire lurks, and tomorrow land could hold an outpost for Brotherhood Outcasts.  EPCOT could be infested by hostile robots. Hollywood Studios could be a safe haven for ghouls. And I’ve heard that all these parks have extensive underground tunnel networks which would greatly expand the playable environments. Imagine wandering through a tunnel, rounding a corner and coming face to face with a feral ghoul wearing the tattered remnants of a Winnie the Pooh costume?
