David & Daphne Sittin’ In A Tree

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I were graciously invited for a dinner date at Ollie and Caleb’s home downtown so we JUMPED at the chance to hang out at their place. Having tasted Ollie’s cooking before, I knew that we would be in for a real treat. The four of us haven’t hung out in a while so we were anxious to just hang out and chill together so that we could play records and catch up on what’s been going on in our lives. While we were all relaxing, David struck up a new love affair with a member of Ollie and Caleb’s family … and it was love at first sight! More »

Movie Review: ‘Water For Elephants’

The TV Guide

For months I’ve been talking about the big screen adaptation of the novel Water for Elephants and this weekend the film finally opened in theaters. To be honest, despite the amount of time I spent blogging about the production and promotion of the film, I wasn’t really convinced that I would love the final product. Last night, David and I decided to see the film because it was the best option available … and while I was kinda, sorta interested in seeing it, I wasn’t all that excited. I am happy to report that I not only enjoyed the film, I actually really loved it! More »

Westward, HO!

The TV Guide

Yesterday was pretty much a travel day for David and me so it wasn’t really all that exciting. After a quick Easter Egg hunt in the front yard of David’s parent’s home, we had to get our butts to the airport for our flight back to LA. Because we did have one stop on our journey, we couldn’t get home as quickly as we would’ve liked … but our layover in Cincinnati, OH did afford us a very nice Easter brunch surprise. More »

PassOVER & OUT

The TV Guide

Today is one of those rare times of the year where I, very unfortunately, do not have time to blog for a full day. It turns out that David and I have an early flight back West to LA and, therefore, I won’t have time to work today … but, seeing that it’s a holiday, I guess it’s not all bad ;) I do have time, tho, to share some fun photos from the Hauslaib family Seder Dinner that we enjoyed last night in celebration of Passover. Because David’s family celebrates both Passover and Easter, his mother wisely celebrates the holidays in the same weekend. Check out some fun photos from the Hauslaib family Seder 2011 below. More »

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 »
