Disneyland Half Marathon: Accomplished!

The TV Guide

I did it! I survived my weekend of races at Disneyland with the completion of the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon yesterday and altho I was feeling horribly ill the day before, I woke up feeing better yesterday and managed to complete my race with no problems at all. The race was fun but it was even more fun to meet up with some friends who met me at the finish line with a great sign they made in support of my run <3 I ended up spending the rest of the day in the parks before I came home to rest up, change and then head out to dance the night away at the Echoplex for their Smiths/Morrissey dance night. It was a long, very tiring day but I lived to tell the tale. More »

Barely Survived The Disneyland 10K

The TV Guide

Today I ran my second of three races this weekend at Disneyland and altho it was mostly a fun race, it was far from a fun morning for me. I’ve been feeling a bit queasy for the past few days and all of that queasiness came to a head this morning when I woke up totally nauseous. I figured it would pass but thruout my entire 6 mile run, I felt moments away from puking my guts out in the nearest trash bin (I wouldn’t ever puke on the ground at Disneyland). Thankfully, I managed to make it thru the race without incident but the experience has me really worried for tomorrow’s 13.1 half marathon race :( More »

Aloha From The Disneyland 5K

The TV Guide

So, today has been a pretty productive day thus far. Before I even started writing today, I ran my very first Disneyland 5K race here in Anaheim, CA. I got to town yesterday evening to pick up my race materials for this weekend and then picked up a few provisions at Target before I grabbed a very unhealthy dinner at Outback (MMMMMM, Aussie Chayze Froys). Then I checked in to my hotel and passed out. The race this morning was fun and, thankfully, not terribly hot so … my Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is off to a great start! More »

A Day Off

The TV Guide

After a long week of taking care of moving stuff, I decided I needed to take a much-deserved day off. I didn’t do a single moving-related thing yesterday so that I could spend the day at Disneyland with my friends. I got there pretty early in the day and stayed until dark. Even tho I was (and still am) pretty exhausted from a string of busy days, I did have a lot of fun yesterday … as you can see in the photos below. More »

Adventure Time

The TV Guide

I didn’t plan on doing anything fun last night other than packing but because the realtor that represents the condo I live in needed to show my place to potential new tenants, I decided not to be here when the showing took place. When I moved last, I had to deal with quite a few showing appointments where I was home working while potential tenants looked around my home on a realtor tour. I get that it’s necessary but it’s weird, awkward and can be uncomfortable. I got some work done yesterday afternoon with help from Emma, so I decided to meet up with my friend Jesse for a drink hang … wanna guess where we decided to meet? More »

Extended Family

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another Sunday Funday for me at the Disney parks down in Anaheim, CA — which probably isn’t a big surprise — but I really wanted to go all out since I will be out of town for the next week. I was able to meet up and hang out with the whole Sons of Anakin SC family but spent much of my time hanging out with members of our club who I hadn’t seen in a very long time. There are so many cool kids in our group that I’m lucky enough to have too many new friends to hang out with. Altho it was painfully hot and humid yesterday, I ended up having a superfun day with some really great friends. More »

The 3 Amigos

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very good, very productive day for me. Having just paid off my car IN FULL, the DMV mailed me the title of my car … which proved to be a GREAT start to the day. I then went to look at what may be my new home in Hollywood but until I know for sure, mum’s the word (tho I wouldn’t mind if you keep a good thought for me). Last night, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to enjoy a night of karaoke with a couple of Sons of Anakin SC friends at the House of Blues in Downtown Disney and SINCE we were in the neighborhood, we may have ridden a ride or two in the parks. Not bad for a Wednesday, I think. More »

Fully Patched

The TV Guide

Because Sarah and Mark had a noon flight back to Detroit yesterday, we really didn’t have much time to end their trip with a bang. We ate a delicious breakfast at Mauro’s Cafe at Fred Segal and then I had to take them to the airport for their flight home. SINCE I was already halfway to Anaheim, CA anyways and SINCE it was the first Sunday that I was able to wear my Sons of Anakin Social Club patches on my vest, I decided to head down and enjoy a fun day at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with my peeps. I know you’re probably not going to believe this but, I only had the best day ever. More »

AND I WASN'T THERE TO SEE HER :( :( :( :( :(

SO … as many of you are probably WELL AWARE by now, I have been spending quite a bit of time at the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks in Anaheim, CA in recent months (and I’ll be spending much more time in the parks now that I’m a full-fledged member of the Sons of Anakin Social Club … BUT I AM DIGRESSING). Yesterday afternoon, our dear Britney Spears took her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to Disneyland for a day of fun in the park together … AND I WASN’T THERE TO SEE THEM!!! OF ALL THE DAYS for Britney Spears to be at Disneyland, she HAD to pick the day that I wasn’t there! ARGHHHHHH!!! More »
