Catching Up With JoJo

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a nice, relaxing day for me in that I did as little as necessary for as long as possible. I think my sleeping patterns are finally back to normal so it was nice to not have to be anywhere to do anything at any particular time. It’s been AGES since I’ve gotten to hang out with my friend Jordan and finally we were able to connect. Jordan has been out of town for the last 12 weekends and that, coupled with my crazy schedule, meant that we just couldn’t get it together and hang until last night. He was free, I was free so we decided to grab dinner so that we could catch up. More »

The Best Of The Wurst

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun day for me, mostly, well before the horrible news came out last night. Altho I’m not feeling quite so happy today, I do want to share with all y’all the amazing time I had with my friends here in SoCal last night. Tamar and her brother Jeremy organized a little birthday get together at Wurstküche in Venice, CA and we had the best time ever. I am constantly reminded of all the amazing people in my life and last night was no exception. I wanted the night to be low key but, naturally, my friends made sure that low key = super fun :) We ate, we drank and we were all very merry, indeed. More »

Hangin’ With The Oohlas

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my first full day home from my amazing vacation overseas and, to be honest, all I wanted to do was … nothing. I sent my mountain of laundry to the cleaners (hopefully it’ll all return intact) and then rested as much as possible. Because my dear Ollie will be out of town this weekend, we decided to hang out together last night to get the weekend party started early. She graciously invited me to a rehearsal session for the upcoming reunion of The Oohlas and I happily accepted! More »

‘Sleep’, One More

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last day here in NYC before Kirsten and I end our holiday adventure and return home to SoCal today. Because I’ve pretty much seen all the Broadway shows that I want to see for this season, I let Kirsten choose the shows she wanted to see and I would happily go along with her. After we saw Macbeth on Monday night, we were both in the mood for more of the Scottish Play … so, we decided to see one of my fave off-Broadway shows — Sleep No More. I was really excited for Kirsten to experience the immersive play for the first time and, to be honest, I was kinda excited to make my return to the McKittrick Hotel so … off we went, for one last adventure together here in the city.

The Scottish Play’s The Thing

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon Kirsten and I successfully made it to NYC from Stockholm and we were greeted with a lot of HEAT and HUMIDITY. I’m not kidding, y’all … it’s kinda miserable. Thankfully, our hotel room has a very powerful air conditioning system so we managed to cool off and stay cool … er, that is until we left the room for the night. Kirst and I have been talking about seeing a Broadway show so I decided to let her choose since I’ve pretty much seen everything that I wanted to see this season. She was interested in seeing Alan Cumming‘s one-man performance of Macbeth and because I loved the show so much when I saw it last April, I was happy to see it again. We managed to score 5th row center seats and … away we went! More »

How Swede It Is

The TV Guide

And … just like that … my little adventure in Scandinavia has come to a close. I am currently writing this blog post back home on US soil having just checked into my hotel for the next couple of nights. I am DEAD TIRED but I want to get some photos up so I can properly say thank you and goodbye to Stockholm, Sweden. Kirsten and I made the most of our last day in Stockholm, as you can see below. We met up with some friends in the early afternoon for a boat ride to an island for lunch. Afterward, I made my way to the Grona Lund amusement park to ride some rollercoasters … and RANDOMLY see a full Ke$ha concert right in the middle of the park. Last night, I decided NOT to sleep at all and made my way to a massive ship called Patricia so I could dance until dawn … which, in Stockholm right now, means until 3AM. We made our way to the airport at 4AM and except for a few stumbling blocks, managed to make it to NYC successfully. Whew! More »

Culture, Club

The TV Guide

So, yeah, Kirsten and I are really, REALLY loving our stay in Stockholm, Sweden this week. From the start, our plan was to just chill out in the city, take the days as they come without much planning. We decided to check out a couple of the museums in town yesterday and spent much of our day filling up on culture. We planned to go for a boat ride last night but our laziness got the better of us and we decided to skip the boat tour and rest up for a night of dancing. Much of our night/early morning was spent filling up on clubbing … and we had a total blast! Click below to see some photos from our fun Friday here in Stockholm. More »

A Viking & Viqueen

The TV Guide

Day #2 here in Stockholm, Sweden turned out to be a lot of fun … especially after our luggage was delivered straight to our hotel room. Altho it was a bit annoying having to go without our bags for an entire day, Kirsten and I made the most of it and had as much fun as possible. Once our bags showed up, we REALLY started to have fun. For dinner, we made our way to a placed called Aifur which is kind of like a Viking version of Medieval Times back home. The entire place, from decor to the waitstaff, is meant to feel like you’ve gone back in time. After dinner, we made our way to the IceBar to have a drink in the -7 degree venue that is made entirely of ice … seriously. Our day may have been a bit touristy but it was deffo a lot of fun.

#Stockholmies

The TV Guide

We made it! After a bit of a harrowing flight, Kirsten and I successfully made it to Stockholm, Sweden where we will be holidaying for the next few days. For the most part, the getting here was painless … but our journey was not without incident and drama. That said, all of our woes melted away as soon as we landed on Swedish terra firma. I’m running on fumes at the moment but I’m trying to get work done for the day so I can … prolly crash out until tomorrow. We haven’t been here long but I think it’s safe to say that we’ve fallen in love with Stockholm already. More »

Much Ado About ‘Much Ado’

The TV Guide

My friend Kirsten are on our way to Stockholm, Sweden later today for a little holiday together but we made a pitstop here in NYC, NY for the night to break up all of the awful flying. We decided to take it easy last night and only went out for a delicious sushi dinner and then a movie. Because Kirsten had yet to see it, we decided to see Much Ado About Nothing at the Lincoln Center. As you may recall, I have a small cameo role as a wedding guest extra in the film so I was excited for Kirsten to see it. I managed to sneak a couple of photos of my cameo in the film so if you’ve yet to see the film you can get a peek at me in Much Ado below … but seriously, GO SEE THIS MOVIE PLEASE ;D More »
