A Very ‘Lucky’ Day

The TV Guide

Despite the fact that the temperature soared into the millions yesterday, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with friends old and new. Last week, Walt Disney‘s first creation — Oswald the Lucky Rabbit — made his debut in Disneyland/California Adventure on a special night devoted to his arrival in the parks. Yesterday was the first day that Oswald was made available for meet and greets with park attendees and I wanted to be among the first people to meet Oswald in “person”. The rest of the day was fun, naturally, even tho it was hotter than Hades all day/evening/night long. Phew! More »

Good News

The TV Guide

I successfully made my way to Detroit early yesterday so that I could visit my dad in the hospital, where he is recuperating this week. Despite assurances by my mom that he was fine, I was worried the entire time it took me to get home to see him … so you can imagine my relief when I walked into his hospital room and heard him laughing with the on duty nurse. I was afraid he was going to look pale and haggard but he looked and sounded fine, which was exactly why I needed to fly across the country to see him :) My mom and I spent a few hours with him yesterday until he was ready to rest so, yeah, my Tuesday was a great day.

All In The SC Family

The TV Guide

Yesterday, for Sunday Funday, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my friends in my Sons of Anakin social club at Disneyland and, wouldn’t you know it, I had the best time ever. Despite the fact that it was a billion degrees, the bunch of us managed to have a really fun time together nonetheless. Honestly, we spent much of our time indoors … enjoying the best air conditioning the Disney parks have to offer … but we spent the day together so, yeah, we had a blast. More »

The Catalina Is Out Of The Bag

The TV Guide

Yesterday a bunch of us took our dear friend Tamar for an early birthday surprise trip to Catalina Island for a day of fun in the sun and I’m happy to report that a superfun time was had by all. In the 8 years I’ve lived in SoCal, I’ve never been to Catalina before and I was waiting for the perfect reason to go. When Tam’s husband Rob came up with the idea to surprise her, I was so in! We all met in Long Beach to hop the Catalina Express to the island and our day of fun got underway. We had a blast but, yeah, Catalina is much, much different than I thought it would be. More »

Phantogram Among The Dead

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Kanani, newly moved to LA from NYC, for a fun concert night date. I had tickets to see Phantogram play a show at the Hollywood Forever cemetery and I thought it would be a fun way to welcome her to town. It had been a while since I saw a show at Hollywood Forever so I’ve been looking forward to this show for a while now. Altho the temps are still warm here in LA by day, it’s been getting cooler and cooler after dark … and it’s always 20 degrees colder in the cemetery so we enjoyed a nice, chilly night outdoors watching Phantogram perform.

Celebrating The Birth Of My BFF

The TV Guide

Today is my BFF Sarah‘s birthday so I would like to devote this post to her. Unfortunately, I cannot be in Detroit right now to celebrate with her as I have in year’s past but I’m sending all of my love to her today and I’m hoping you will send your love as well. Sarah and I have been friends for 2 decades now and we have been through a lot together over the years. She has been there for me in for the many, many, many good times and for the invariable bad times with love, support and unwavering friendship. It was hard for me to find just one photo to share of Sarah today so I had to select my fave photos from the years and years of fun we’ve shared <3 More »

Work Space

The TV Guide

As I continue to settle into my new place, different parts of my new apartment are starting to come together. All of my packing boxes where picked up yesterday so I have even more room freed up to put things away. Since I moved in, I’ve been working at my dining room table but I’ve been anxious to get my permanent work space set up. When I moved, I donate my clunky old desk and decided to get a new desk after the move. Yesterday, I found the desk that I wanted at CB2, along with a fun chair and rug to go in my vinyl nook. Last night, I met up with Amelia and Tamar for an impromptu dinner hang that we pulled together at the last minute. It was a good day. More »

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 »

Dinner With The Doc

The TV Guide

One week after I moved out of my old place, I met up with the realtor to hand in my keys and be 100% officially done with that place. Naturally, the realtor was very impressed with how well I took care of the home so my full deposit will be sent to me quickly and then, my time in that place will be done done done. Afterward, I met up with Darion and his father for a lovely family dinner. All in all, it was a great day. 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 »
