Turnt Up

The TV Guide

So, my Saturday turned out to be quite a doozy … one that has left me reeling a bit today. I somehow managed to keep my Saturday mostly free with the intent of resting up and being lazy by day (in the insanely scorching heat) and then going out to dance in WeHo with friends by night. Instead, I managed to pack quite a bit of fun stuff in my day before I eventually went out last night. I got to spend time with old friends and new friends, enjoyed some art and engaged in my first bit of dancing in ages. It was a fun, if tiring day ;D More »

A Night With Bugs Bunny And The LA Philharmonic

The TV Guide

Last night, Tamar and I made our way to the Hollywood Bowl to see a live performance of Bugs Bunny at the Symphony and we had the absolute best time ever. The show features live performances by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and screenings of classic Bugs Bunny/Looney Tunes cartoons and is probably one of the most magical things that I have ever seen at the Hollywood Bowl in my life. My first introduction to classical music was via Looney Tunes cartoons and now to see hear the music performed live by one of the greatest orchestras in the world, coupled with those beloved cartoons from my youth … it was an almost overwhelming experience. Tam and I were charmed from start to finish, it was truly a magical night. More »

Hangin’ With My Boys

The TV Guide

Wednesday was a really great day for me. I went for my first run in months (terrible, I know), I enjoyed an amazing massage (wonderful, trust me) and I got to hang out with two of my fave guys. Because I have a group of races coming up in a few weeks, I know that my lazy ass has to get back into the habit of running. I’m embarrassed to admit that I haven’t really run since my last race … in May. With so little time left before I have to run for real, I figured the time has come to remind my body that it has to move for long periods of time. After my run, my amazing massage therapist Gwinn came by for a massage and OMG, I am not worthy. Then I met up for a coffee date with my new friend Austin and then I spent the rest of the evening hanging out with Emma, Josh and Duke at their place. It was a great day, indeed. More »

Tiki Time

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a busy day for me as I spent much of it running all over the place, taking care of tedious errands. I had plans to get together with Eileen so I knew that I had our night together to look forward to. We talked about hitting up a few Tiki bars around town and last night settled on spending some time at Tiki No in North Hollywood. Eileen was very familiar with their infamous Scorpion Bowl drink which is basically a fish tank that is full of booze for 2 or more people to enjoy. I told her I was up for one drink and, well, this fish tank of booze ended up being that one drink. More »

Movie Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Adriana for a dinner/movie hang and after we grabbed some decent Mexican food at Senor Fish in Eagle Rock, we went to a late showing of the sequel film Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. As a fan of the movie franchise, I was really hoping that this new movie would hold up to the rest of the movies and while it was good, it wasn’t really as good as I think it should’ve been. That said, I liked the movie and I had a great time with Adriana and the movies. All in all, Rogue Nation gets a thumbs up from me. More »

Out In Force

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another trademark Sunday Funday for me and my friends at the Disneyland Resort theme park in Anaheim, CA. I had to miss going to the park last weekend because I had just moved into my new place so I was itching to get down to see my friends this weekend. I had to run a few errands early in the AM so I wasn’t able to meet up with everybody until early afternoon but once I got there, a lot of fun was had. As usual, we rode rides, we drank dranks and we ate our faces off … ’twas a very fun day with a group of very fun people. More »

Nerd Dinner

The TV Guide

After a week of being cooped up with unpacking and housekeeping in my new place, I finally found the time to get out of the house yesterday. Tamar invited to celebrate her BFF Danielle’s birthday at a leisurely afternoon brunch party in Santa Monica, which was followed by a super chill hang with her amazing parents afterward. Last night, Adriana invited me to a fun dinner party attended by a super spectacular group of her nerd friends. All day long, I was surrounded by great people — new friends and old — which made for a truly stellar Saturday. More »

I Scream Social

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, Emma and Josh came by new new place to check it out and take me out to lunch and we enjoyed a nice afternoon together. We went out for pizza and ice cream and pretty much ate our faces off. The pizza place we went to was pretty good but the ice cream, yeah, it was NEXT LEVEL. Josh was telling me that the ice cream shop we went to, Quenelle, is one of the best in the country — and he is so right. Of the available flavors right now, I had a hard time deciding which one to get … but after I tasted the Guinness flavor, I knew I found the love of my life. More »

Sunday Was Cancelled, Too

The TV Guide

Because I was so wiped out from my move day on Friday, I decided to take Saturday off from doing anything. And because I wasn’t finished being lazy on Saturday, I decided to take off Sunday, too. Normally on Sundays, I make my way down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my friends but I actually slept in a little late, got work done and then decided … nah, I’m not leaving the couch for the rest of the day. I’d like to say that I got some boxed unpacked but I can’t do that. I did manage to rally by the later part of the day to run a few errands but that was pretty much it. This was one Sunday where I decided productivity was not high on my agenda. More »

Saturday Has Been Cancelled

The TV Guide

After my very long, very tiring day Friday (my move day), I decided that Saturday was going to be a day for me to get a jump on things and start with the unpacking. What I didn’t realize was that my body had other plans. I was so darn exhausted when I woke up yesterday that I was physically in pain. I did my best to rally and managed to get some work done but I knew I had to lie back down and sleep for a bit longer. A short nap turned into a long nap and then another and then the day was completely gone. I figured, eh … after the stressful week I had last week, I was due for a day … or two … from doing absolutely anything at all. More »
