Just Deserts

The TV Guide

I have made my way back home from my weekend in Palm Springs and I have to say, the trip was mostly very fun. Jordan invited a group of his close friends to spend the weekend together at the Ace Hotel so that we could party and relax and celebrate altogether. Altho I had much on my mind, I was able to let got and have genuine fun with some really amazing people. Ollie graciously accompanied me for the weekend trip and I cannot express how much I love her for being there for me. In the end, I’m glad I made the trek into the desert. More »

Hope, Springs

The TV Guide

Ollie and I successfully braved the rain and HORRID traffic to make our way to Palm Springs for the weekend. We kinda sorta make a pitstop at an Outback Steakhouse on the freeway to sate our hunger (which delayed our arrival a bit) but, for the most part, the trip was easy breezy. As soon as we got here, the party got started for Jordan’s birthday weekend. Let the fun begin! More »

Yum Yum Dim Sum

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty decent day for me. I met up with Tamar and Ollie for brunch and we decided to go out for Dim Sum. Folks, if you know a good dim sum place, it is your duty to eat there as much as possible. Before yesterday, I’ve only really enjoyed dim sum in NYC but thanks to Tam, I now know where to go here in LA to stuff my face until I’m ready to burst. More »

Last Minute, Late Night Comfort

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last full day here in Detroit and for the most part, I spent 99% of it doing, well, nothing. I worked for a bit and then spent the rest of the day slacking like a mofo. Sarah braved the Black Friday craziness for a bit but I opted to stay home … which was nice because I’ve really not been in the mood to do much lately. Last night, tho, we decided that I should prolly get out of the house so we picked up Agnes and made our way to The Living Room in Berkley, MI for some pizza and martinis … just like the good ol’ days.

Thankful For The 30th Annual Detroit Turkey Trot

The TV Guide

It’s Thanksgiving Day here in the US and while I normally spend some time blogging about whatever may be going on in the goss world while everyone else gorges themselves on turkey dinners, this year looks like it will be a little different for me. Y’all may know that I am in Detroit, MI this week for the holiday and earlier this morning, my BFF Sarah and our friend Agnes joined me in running the 30th annual Detroit Turkey Trot race. They ladies ran the 5K, I ran the 10K and we had a blast. Now, I’m tired. Hahaha. Instead of working for the early part of the day, I’ll try to post some things later on in the day … after I rest my dawgs a bit. We had a lot of fun this morning so if you want to check out some of our fun photos, you can do so below. More »

Madonna Rocks Motown With Her ‘MDNA’ World Tour

The TV Guide

The main reason for my quick trip home to Detroit this week, in addition to seeing some beloved BFFs, was to see Madonna perform at the Joe Louis Arena in downtown Detroit on her hometown stop of the MDNA World Tour. As you may recall, I was lucky enough to see Maddy in San Jose and LA, CA last month but this Detroit show was NOT to be missed. It was a bygone conclusion that my best friend Sarah was going with me to the show but what to do with the third ticket. We decided to surprise Sarah’s mom and bring her to the show with us … and we had a blast. Check out photos and video below from last night’s fun. More »

I Ran The Golden Gate Bridge

The TV Guide

So … I had a very fun, very bizzy weekend in San Francisco, CA over the past couple of days. As you may know, I made my way up to SF on Friday evening ahead of the US Half Marathon yesterday. My girl Tara flew up from LA Saturday to join me and we really had the best time ever. I’ve known Tara for a few years now but this weekend was our first time hanging out just the two of us. After you’ve slept in the same bed with someone, you’re kinda BFFs forever. The race was really a great one. Despite all of the EVIL hills, I managed to run my fastest half marathon yet. As you might’ve suspected, I did snap a few photos of this weekend’s fun, check ‘em out below. More »

Hallowe’en Abridged

The TV Guide

And so …. another Hallowe’en has come and gone. The morning after Hallowe’en, I always feel like Charlie Brown and Linus in the very last scene of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown when the friends are talking about the passing of another holiday. While I had fun last night with some very good friends, it really wasn’t the best Hallowe’en ever. David was tending to his parents who are stranded here in LA due to Hurricane Sandy and I hung out with Emma, Michael and Josh. After a few drinks, we made our way to the West Hollywood Hallowe’en Carnaval and then settled in at my place to watch a movie. It was a quite Hallowe’en for sure, but still … very fun. More »

Celebrating Hallowe’en With The Rock N Roll LA Half Marathon

The TV Guide

After Ollie and I completed the Awesome 80′s Run! in San Diego, CA Saturday morning, we made our way back home to LA so that I could rest up for the Rock N Roll LA Halloween Half Marathon the following morning. Yes, my crazy ass booked back to back runs which SOUNDED like a good idea in theory but … well, it kinda kicked my ass in practice. Thankfully, I was able to run the RNR race with my friend Tara and her friend Danielle who both motivated me beyond what I thought I could do and helped me finish with a very respectable time.

Back To The Awesome 80′s Again

The TV Guide

As you may have noticed, it was a very bizzy running weekend for me these past couple of days. On Friday, my friend Ollie and I drove down to San Diego, CA to spend the night so that we could be up and ready for the Awesome 80′s Run! the following morning. Back in September, I ran the Awesome 80′s Run! in Pasadena, CA with my friend Ling but this time, I ran it with Ollie. The 10K was truly one of the best races I’ve ever run and I happily finished with my fasted 10K time :D More »
