Running On Fumes

The TV Guide

My Sunday was really hectic but productive. Even tho I really did not have time to run a race, I decided that I had to run my scheduled race yesterday so that I can remind my body that it has a lot of running to do very soon. With a 5K, 10K and half marathon in two weeks, I really couldn’t afford to skip on a race opportunity. After I completed my race, I returned home to resume packing/purging — only to find my air conditioner stopped blowing cold air! LOL. I managed to get a good chunk of work done AND managed to make some money selling CDs and DVDs at Amoeba Music. I rounded out my day with a quick hang with Tamar and managed to get to bed fairly early. 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 »

Calm In The Storm

The TV Guide

The process of moving is slow-going for me but is progressing nicely … for the most part. This move is proving to be a particularly emotional one for me (on many different levels) so I am finding myself a bit overwhelmed from time to time. It’s natural, moving can be a very stressful time for anyone so I’m just trying to keep all of that in mind. I’m digging out things that I have to decide to keep, give away, donate or trash. It’s oddly freeing to just get rid of stuff that I’ve determined I no longer need. Invariably, tho, I have come across things that are painful reminders of happier times which tend to stop me in my tracks but, thankfully, those moments are few and a quick trip to the dumpster has proven to be very helpful :D In the midst of my packing last night, I decided I needed a break … and luckily, my dear Ollie was free for dinner.

Double Date

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last day in Detroit and I decided to spend it with my parents. Because of my bizzy schedule all last week, I really didn’t get to spend much time with them so I knew I had to save Sunday for them. Sarah graciously invited them over to her home and then the four of us went out for lunch together. We didn’t get up to anything fancy, just a nice meal where we all got to talk and catch up with one another. More »

Industrial Is Not Dead

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fun day, full of mirth and merriment in two different cities in two different countries. Sarah and I started our day in Toronto, Ontario where we brunched and walked around downtown for a couple of hours before we had to hit the road for our 4 hour drive home to Detroit. After we regrouped at her place, we picked up Mark and made our way to Green Dot Stables in downtown Detroit for dinner … where we randomly ran into Erik and his friend Elisa … who told us about a kickass dance party at Small’s in Hamtramck. Of course we went and had the best night ever. More »

‘Guardians’ Again / Tori Amos Covers NIN

The TV Guide

Last night Sarah, Mark and I made our way to their local movie theater so that we could see Guardians of the Galaxy together. Altho I’ve already seen the movie, they hadn’t so I was happy to see it again with them. The plan for the night was to keep things nice and easy so we opted for the movie date. Considering Sarah and I are headed up to Toronto, Ontario later today, an easy movie night was the perfect choice. More »

Movie Review: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

The TV Guide

Last night I was invited to an early screening of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and to be honest, I had to think long and hard about agreeing to see the movie. Ever since the movie was first announced, all I heard were bad things about production, casting, storyline changes and on and on. Everything I heard about the movie before I saw it led me to believe that I would not like the movie. I’m glad I decided to see the movie anyway because all of the negative things I heard about the movie are completely untrue. The biggest surprise for me was that TMNT is NOT a Michael Bay movie (ie. it is nothing like the super annoying crapfest that his Transformers movies have become) — her merely produced this movie, he didn’t write or direct it. The second biggest surprise was how funny and charming the movie is. Altho the turtles are computer animated via motion capture cameras, they do have the same feel that we got from the rubber-suited turtles from the original TMNT movies of the early 90s. The movie isn’t without its flaws but I really enjoyed TMNT so much that I can totally forgive the few things that I didn’t like because there are far too many things that I really DO LIKE about the movie.

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 »
