Dougrise, Dougset (or Doug-Out)
I told you I would go months at a time not writing this here wordblog thingie...but Im back so rest easy both my followers. Ok..so..for 10 glorious weeks I had an old friend from Dallas stay with me. We'll call him Doug because his real name is Douglass so don't tell. Doug is kind of a good ol boy neurotic comic from Dallas who has never been to New York...who has some incredibly fun interesting ways to view life and the city. (He was very excited to land at "La Gordita" airport) He also doesn't know how to use the Internet, so he probably wont see this...but if he does, he'll think its funny...(probably, because of the $1 Bud Select Tallboys in the bodega across the street from us...he will read it for the first time himself...) Ive scripted out a few real conversations we had when he was here. Feel free to use these on auditions.
INT:My bedroom. 1:30 am May 29 2010
DOUG: Rory. Put soccer on. Lets watch soccer.
RORY: Soccer? Its 1:30am there is no soccer on..
DOUG: Cant you tebow it?
DOUG: Tebow, Tito what ever it is. Can you do it?
RORY: Can I TIVO a soccer game from this afternoon?
RORY: You want me to tape a past event...something thats already happened?
DOUG: It cant do that?
RORY: It cant time travel? No...it can not
DOUG: I met the most gorgeous black girl tonight!
DOUG: If I had a million dollars Id make a tiger fight a lion, wouldn't you?
RORY: Not really in my top ten
DOUG: Come on. You wouldn't want to see that? In Roman times that was their football. You and me'd be big fans.
DOUG: Cause we love football, we love beers!

DOUG: Rory. Sorry sorry. What are you watching? Who won the Boston vs Celtics game?
RORY: Boston vs Celtics? Ummm.the Hawks
DOUG: OH. Can you turn that to play Led Zepplin? (pointing at the TV which is on channel 622 all 80's music)

DOUG: Billy Joel
RORY: Get out
RORY: Doug, the Internets back up and my laptops working again. What did you want to look up?
RORY: You said you really needed to check on something before you left.
DOUG: Oh yeah. Can you see how many carbs are in a glass of champagne?
RORY: That's what you want to look up?
DOUG: Oh yeah...I think Atkins lied to me and that's why I didn't lose weight
DOUG: I buy that $4 champagne from that Asian store every day...they must think Im celebrating every day
RORY: The fact that you re standing here is a good reason to celebrate

RORY: Ok, Ive set you up with a gmail account. Try it on your phone
DOUG: Ok...ok. What do I?

DOUG: No. email@example.com?
DOUG: Wait, are people going to see I'm gay for beer when I send an email?
RORY: No, they don't send your password
DOUG: Are they free?
RORY: Are...emails free?
DOUG: Yeah I mean I don't pay for each one do I?
RORY: No Doug. Is it working on your phone?
DOUG: No...I'm typing firstname.lastname@example.org See?
RORY: Doug..really? You don't spell out the word at...theres a symbol
DOUG: Ah, I don't want to waste time with the emails. It's ok..I don't need it. Lets have some champagne.
This is just a brief sample of the ten weeks Doug was here. Many more...like the time he replaced the turkey burgers he ate of mine with Swiss cheese and called it even...until then...
Oh yeah,Ive been popping round Texas doing corporate work, so if you happen to see me please give me a water...
Drugs are a bet with your mind.
