They’re Heeeeere

The TV Guide

Yay! My BFFs Sarah and Mark arrived here in SoCal safe and sound last night, getting underway a week of fun ahead. Because they had to work a full day yesterday, they were not able to fly out until 8pm ET … which meant that they arrived at 10pm PT. Because I keep my home painfully free of anything even remotely resembling nutritious (that is, while I am out of running training — which I need to start up again very soon, not to digress too much) we had to stop off to pick up provisions on our way home. Sarah and I have a LONG history of hours spent at Target so, naturally, that’s where we went. We dropped off food and luggage at my place and then went out for a late bite to eat. We enjoyed a very nice first night together. More »

Officially Official

The TV Guide

Sooooo, yeah, yesterday was pretty sweet. A little over 2 months since I first met them and a little over a month after I officially became a prospect, I was officially voted into the Sons of Anakin Social Club at Disneyland yesterday. Trust me, I understand how this may be a bit confusing out of context for some of you but I can assure it, it was a very good thing. As I’ve mentioned before, I decided to join one of the many social clubs at Disneyland in an effort to make new friends and share a common/crazy love of all things Disney AND Star Wars and yesterday, I was officially “patched in” to the club. Needless to say, I had a great time yesterday becoming a new member of this social club family … but it’s only the start of more fun to come. More »

Movie Review: ‘Snowpiercer’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun day in that I got to spend most of it with my friends Tamar and Caleb. Tam took us to an afternoon birthday pool party in the hills, which was great, and then we made our way back down to earth for a late showing of the indie film Snowpiercer. We’ve been hearing great things about the movie for a few weeks now so we decided to see what all the fuss was about. Having seen the movie myself, I’ve determined that folks either really love Snowpiercer or they really don’t. Tam and Caleb were in the former category, I find myself in the latter. More »

Celebrating Disneyland’s 59th Anniversary

The TV Guide

Yesterday my BFF Ollie and I made our way down to Anaheim, CA to celebrate the 59th anniversary of the Disneyland Resort and we had a smashing time. I know it may sound like an impossibility that I can have so much fun at Disneyland when I go there so much but it’s true, I don’t know how to explain it. Ollie hadn’t been to Disneyland in over a year so it was fun to run around the park and do our fave stuff together. Despite the frequency with which I go to the park, each visit is unique and different. Yesterday was no exception :D More »

Welcome Back Party

The TV Guide

After the super fun weekend that I got to enjoy celebrating my birthday with my friends, you might expect that I would decide to just stay home and chill out on my Monday night. Yeah, that’s not what happened. The president of my Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin, who was away on vacay for about 3 weeks, made his grand return last night and a bunch of us met up with him at Disney California Adventure for a little welcome back party. The parks were wonderfully empty and the weather was cool & breezy … which meant it was the perfect night of fun at Disney. More »

The Happiest Birthday On Earth

The TV Guide

After my pretty epic birthday party Saturday night (thrown for me by my truly amazing friends), I knew I had to get my buns down to Disneyland so that I could properly celebrate my birthday. With rare exception, I’ve celebrated my birthday at Disneyland every year that I’ve lived here in LA so, it simply had to be done. I met up with some of my peeps in the Sons of Anakin social club and we had the best day ever! I’m not sure how your Sunday turned out but my Sunday turned out pretty spectacularly :D More »

4T

The TV Guide

First and foremost, I have to thank every single one of your for the barrage of messages, tweets and comments that you have been sending me all weekend for my birthday. I have been floored by all of the love that you guys have been throwing my way. It may sound weird but I carry you guys in my heart with me wherever I go because, hello, we spend so much time “together” on a daily basis … and have done so, for years! My friends threw me the most amazing party last night and they managed to include you guys (represented by OG Emily, Iris and Devonte Antonio) in the fun. So thank you. My friends, OMG, I can’t even begin to thank them for being the most amazing people on earth. I had the best day ever. More »

My Only Wish (This Year)

The TV Guide

So … today’s my birthday and even tho I never take a day off from blogging … I’m taking today off from blogging. BUT, even tho I’m doing my usual day’s worth of work today, I can’t let the day go by without posting something … so here goes. This November, I will be running my 10th and likely final marathon in NYC and in the hopes of going out with a bang, I am raising funds for an amazing NYC organization called Team For Kids. Because I have been blessed beyond belief personally, I am hoping that YOU will help me share some of the wealth with an organization that helps the kids of NYC. I’ve asked all of my family and friends to NOT spend a single penny on me for my birthday (or otherwise) this year in the hopes that they will use the money they might otherwise spend on gifts, cards, balloons, drinks, etc. for a donation for Team For Kids. I’m also asking you guys to do the same :D More »

Movie Review: ‘Boyhood’

The TV Guide

For a few months now (years for some) we have been hearing about Richard Linklater‘s film Boyhood which was filmed over a 12 year time frame. Last night, I was able to be among the first people in LA to see the movie in full. I met up with my friends Emma, Eileen and Josh at the Arclight in Hollywood to see Boyhood and I am happy to relay that we were all completely floored by the film. I mean … wow. Before I get into a few details about the movie, I must point out first that it is my humble opinion that Boyhood will be one of, if not, THE best movies of the year. Hands down. There is a poignancy to this very simple story of one boy and his family that will resonate with so many people. I’m really excited for more people to see the movie so that they can share the experience as well. More »

Movie Review: ‘Obvious Child’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Emma for a quick movie date because I learned a long time ago that when Emma offers a movie invite, you absolutely have to say yes. She suggested we see an indie film titled Obvious Child and altho I knew nothing about the movie at all, I jumped at the chance to see it with Em. As usual, Emma proved to have excellent taste in films becuase we both loved Obvious Child very much. The movie stars comedienne Jenny Slate in an amazing break-out role that, I hope, will provide her with more acting opportunities in the future. More »
