Dinner With The Doc

The TV Guide

One week after I moved out of my old place, I met up with the realtor to hand in my keys and be 100% officially done with that place. Naturally, the realtor was very impressed with how well I took care of the home so my full deposit will be sent to me quickly and then, my time in that place will be done done done. Afterward, I met up with Darion and his father for a lovely family dinner. All in all, it was a great day. More »

Back To The Old House

The TV Guide

Das it. I’m done. Yesterday was my absolute and final last day in my old place. In my mind, I envisioned that yesterday would be a breeze but, in fact, it turned out to be a bit of an ordeal but thankfully, it’s all finished now. Out of the Closet came by my old place to pick up some furniture for donation as well as boxes of books, bags of clothing, toys, shoes, etc. I figured the pick-up might take an hour max … it actually took much longer due to logistical problems. Then, I had to stick around for the cleaners to come by and tidy things up before I hand over the keys. It’s official, my time living on Kings Road in West Hollywood are dunzo. More »

A Day Off

The TV Guide

After a long week of taking care of moving stuff, I decided I needed to take a much-deserved day off. I didn’t do a single moving-related thing yesterday so that I could spend the day at Disneyland with my friends. I got there pretty early in the day and stayed until dark. Even tho I was (and still am) pretty exhausted from a string of busy days, I did have a lot of fun yesterday … as you can see in the photos below. More »

The (Old) Home Stretch

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a long but very productive day. Emma and Josh, my saviors, met me at my old place to help me box up books and bag up clothes which are being donated to Out of the Closet … which took up most of the afternoon. We loaded up another bunch of odds and ends that still needed to be moved to my new place and did a bit of cleaning. Those two, man, I don’t know what I would’ve done without them over the past few days. Afterward, I met up with Tamar and Caleb for dinner and a hang. I wasn’t planning on staying out late but the company was so good, I ended up staying out later than I thought I would. I was tired but really happy to spend time with really good friends. More »

Nine Inch Nails Rocks Irvine, CA

The TV Guide

My Friday in the new homestead was a pretty good one. Altho I’m still chin deep in boxes left to unpack, I managed to get a few more of the boxes unpacked, got my Direct TV installed and managed to situate (more or less) my living room area. I woke up late yesterday morning because I turned off my alarm so I did my best to make it up by working late. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to drive down to Irvine, CA to see Nine Inch Nails in concert but I managed to rally and make the trek. I’m so glad that I did. Even tho the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater is a massive venue, I was able to walk right in and randomly stumble upon my group of friends. The show was amazing, just what I needed last night. More »

Movie Review: ‘Let’s Be Cops’

The TV Guide

So … my Thursday … LORDE, was a lot. It was my first full day here in my new abode and thankfully I got the Internet installed fairly early in the AM so that I could do a full day’s work. In between, I unpacked a box or two here and there, set up my bathroom for my first shower (yay) and other odd and ends like that. I worked so late into the late evening that I totally forgot I had plans to meet up with some friends at the El Capitan Theater :( UGH. Still, I needed a mindless movie so I decided to go see Let’s Be Cops. More »

Move-ment

The TV Guide

Whew. What a day. Yesterday was my big move day and I’m happy to say that I’ve lived to tell the tale. For the most part, everything went off without a hitch. The moving company I worked with, Real Rock N Roll Movers, was fantastic. The movers really helped make my day much less stressful than it could’ve been. I spent last night in my new place and while I still have some things to get used to, I’m happily settling in. There is still work to be done at both the old place and the new but now that I’m online in my new home, I’m on the right track to getting this move totally finished. More »

All Keyed Up

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another full day of packing/purging here at my soon-to-be old homestead and I have to start out this post by giving a HUGE shout-out to my dear friends Emma and Josh for all their help. I honestly don’t know how I would’ve made it this far in my moving process without their amazing help. The both of them came by yesterday to help me pack and more importantly, help me purge before my big moving day tomorrow. They went with me to my new place to pick up my keys (!!!) and help me move in a few things. It was a long day. Oy! More »

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 »

Making Progress

The TV Guide

So, this post is going to be a boring “I’m moving” update but that’s only because I don’t have anything all that exciting to share from yesterday. I’ve been making great progress with my packing, choosing instead to do it a little at a time, in different rooms, so as not to overwhelm and stress myself out. I was able to give a bunch of toys and books to a dear friend and her daughter which just felt so great. I swung by my new place yesterday to drop off a check and fell in LOVE with my new place all over again (it’s bigger than I remembered, which is good considering how much I’m bringing with me). I also got a haircut so … THAT WAS MY FRIDAY :D More »
