A Most Eggs-cellent Day

The TV Guide

Yesterday was David’s and my first full day here at his parent’s house in Connecticut and I’m not gonna lie … it was a very quiet day. Because we’re out in the country (ie. woods that get so dark at night that you half expect to see murderers, vampires or flesh-eating zombies roaming around in the back yard), there really ain’t much to do. For the most part, I spent a nice relaxing day reading and hanging out with David’s family. BUT, by nightfall (presumably to distract from the fact that the darkness outside looks like a horror film waiting to happen), it was time to dye Easter Eggs! More »

Riding The Rails

The TV Guide

David’s and my time in NYC has come to an end and we have already made our way North to his parent’s home in Connecticut. Yesterday was pretty much a work day that turned into a travel day. Yesterday afternoon, we boarded an Amtrak train and made our way to David’s home state for the Easter weekend. It wasn’t an eventful trip … but because I rarely get to ride trains, it was a blast for me. More »

An Evening With Polly Jean & Friends

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another FANTASTICALLY fun day here in NYC. After David and I attended a matinee performance of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (read my review HERE), David and I parted ways for a bit. He ran off to attend the opening of the new Broadway musical Sister Act and I hooked up with my dear friend Irene for last night’s PJ Harvey concert at Terminal 5. After both shows, we all met up at Ed’s Chowder House for grub and drinks. It was a fab night. More »

Theater Review: ‘How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying’

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, David and I made our way to the Al Hirschfeld Theater on Broadway to attend the matinee performance of the new revival musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. As you may know, this new production of the show stars Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe (who previously made his Broadway debut in the play Equus back in 2008). Ever since the show opened late last month, I’ve been anxiously awaiting my chance to see the show and yesterday was the day. Not only was it a full-blown show-tunes funfest but Radcliffe‘s exuberant excitement made the show an absolute delight to watch! More »

Playing ‘Catch’ Up With Friends

The TV Guide

As I mentioned earlier, David and I went to the Neil Simon Theater on Broadway to see the new musical production of Catch Me If You Can (read my review HERE) and then afterward, met up with our good friends Marissa and Isaac for a late dinner at the Landmarc inside the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. Because our time here in NYC this week is limited and jam-packed with stuff to do, our hang out session with Marissa and Isaac last night was our only chance to see one another … so we really made the most of our time together.

Theater Review: ‘Catch Me If You Can’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way to the Neil Simon Theater on Broadway to see the new musical Catch Me If You Can. Altho I had not seen the film, I was very anxious to see this show because one of my favorite Broadway actresses, Kerry Butler, stars in the show. I was only marginally familiar with the story so I hoped that seeing it cold would be entertaining. For the most part, I thought the show was OK … but, unfortch, it wasn’t nearly as exciting or upbeat as I was hoping. More »

Very Long Overdue

The TV Guide

Last night David and I hung out with a group of friends last night that included Cara — who we hadn’t hung out with in ages — and Shane & Jordan, who we always make sure to spend time with when we’re in the city. We convened for dinner at The Smith in the East Village and then made our way to Splash Bar for Musical Monday. We had a blast, primarily because we were in such great company. More »

Being Lazy

The TV Guide

So … after our very LONG travel day Saturday and the lack of sleep we got upon our very late arrival here in NYC, yesterday turned out to be the laziest of days … and I mean la-zy. After work, I read for a bit … and then passed out. David and his sisters got out to enjoy the weather but, yeah, I was asleep for most of my Sunday. I did rally around dinner time so that we could all hang out for a bit on our first day in the city. David’s sister Eden suggested we go out for ice cream … and cupcakes … and doughnuts. Needless to say, that got me up and out of the house. More »

Feasting On ‘The Hunger Games’

The TV Guide

In February I mentioned that I started reading The Hunger Games book trilogy by Suzanne Collins and, after some delay, I was finally able to plow thru book 2 and start book 3. Because our travel day from LA to NYC was very long (due to multiple delays), I was able to finish Catching Fire, the second book of the trilogy. Overall, I loved the book … and I love where the story is headed. It’s been a long time since I voraciously needed to read a book as entertaining as Catching Fire. More »

Movie Review: ‘Scream 4′

The TV Guide

At last … after many years of hoping, praying, talking … then planning and waiting … Scream 4 finally opened in theaters here in the US yesterday. It seems like a lifetime ago that we first heard that the Scream film franchise was being rebooted with a new sequel and an ice age since the last film was released in theaters … but Scream 4 is out. I was able to see the film at a showing yesterday and I am very happy to reveal that I LOVED it entirely and believe it to be a very worthy sequel to the amazing Scream horror franchise. More »
