Mark Xs The Spot

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fun day for me. I got to hang out with Tamar and Ollie last evening and then with my friend Mark last night. Tam and Ollie came over to my place to check it out and I’m happy to report that they approve of my new digs. I think I finally got the place up to snuff so that I can have people over to see it so I was happy to host Tam and Ollie as my first guests. After I gave them a tour of my apartment, I showed them the building’s amenities (the roof, the pool, etc.) and they seemed to love it all. After our quick little hang sesh at my place, I met up with my friend Mark at the Cha Cha Lounge for a couple of beers and some food truck eats. It was only the best way to end my day. More »

My Homebody Is A Wonderland

The TV Guide

Despite having to run a few errands last night, my day was another quiet one here at the new homestead. I randomly got into hanging artwork mode and spent much of my time putting things up on my new walls. I also decided to do some run rearranging, which meant that I had to run out and get one new throw pillow to pull everything together and I’m happy to report that my place is better than ever. I’ve been hesitant, thus far, to invite folks over because I didn’t feel my new place was quite ready for guests but now, I think I finally have it set up well enough so that I can show it off without too much worry.

Lounging With Lola

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, I was invited by Tamar to go for a nice, long walk together and I happily accepted her offer. Any chance I get to spend with Tam and her adorable dog Lola, I do my best to be available so I was more than happy to spend my free afternoon hanging out with them. We talked a bit about going on a long hike but in the end, we decided a less strenuous walk in her neighboorhood might be the better idea. We took Lola with us and off we went. More »

My Sunday Routine

The TV Guide

Another Sunday, another trip down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my peoples at Disneyland. Now that the temps have fallen from the 100s down into the 80s, it was practically WINTER here in SoCal yesterday. Altho it was still hot, it was much less hot than it’s been for the past few weeks so it did feel like a relief. The day was fun and fairly standard. Fun Fun Fun, you know, the usual. I did get to meet a PITNB reader in the parks last night so that was really a great highlight of my day. All in all, I enjoyed another great Sunday Funday at Disney! More »

‘Tangled’ Up In You

The TV Guide

Yesterday I met up with my good friend Gillian and her adorable daughter Gemma at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA for an early showing of the Disney animated film Tangled. Gillian and I have been looking for a time to hang out for a few weeks now and we finally managed to get it together. When she suggested I join her and Gemma at the El Capitan to see Tangled, I mean, duh … of course I said yes. After the movie, we grabbed a quick lunch together and then played some video games at Dave & Buster’s :D Last night, I made my way down to Manhattan Beach to hang out with Emma and Josh for a bit. Emma is baby bumpin’ out like crazy so I’ve been wanting to see her for a while now. More »

Passing The Time

Inspite of grand plans to make my Friday an exciting one, I managed to enjoy a fairly quiet, none-too-exciting day. I spent most of the day watching everyone on earth get their shiny new iPhone 6 phones while I had to sit out on the fun and wait (my phone won’t arrive for weeks). I did manage to pretend for a bit that my iPad Mini was an iPhone 6 Plus but … the novelty wore off really quickly, haha. I did venture out of the house last night to get a haircut and then I swung by a nearby store to pick up a few housewares and, well, that was my exciting Friday night :D More »

Happy Laundry Day

The TV Guide

Today is a banner day for me. Today is the first day that I have done laundry in my new place. For various reasons, I haven’t had the time to do laundry in my new place yet and TODAY was the day!!! Normally, I would just haul my stuff down to the laundry room, do my laundry, then haul it back … not really caring who I ran into. In my new building, with younger/hotter people, I’m more aware of how I have to look when I’m casually doing laundry (or anything else) in this place. At last, I have a reason to want to do laundry!

Movie Review: ‘The Drop’

The TV Guide

When I was home in Detroit last week, I spent most of my free time with my parents visiting my dad in the hospital. On my Friday night there, I decided to go out with my friends Sarah and Mark for dinner and movie. We had so much fun eating dinner that we missed our movie showtime and that was the end of our night. We were planning to see the new Tom Hardy film The Drop so last night, with a free night on my hands, I decided to see The Drop at the Arclight (it was a hard choice since I also want to see The Skeleton Twins but the movie showtime ended up being the deciding factor). I am SO glad I didn’t miss out on seeing The Drop because it was really a very excellent film. More »

The Spoils

The TV Guide

I ventured out into the insane heat yesterday to run some errands. I had been putting off a trip to Ikea for as long as possible but since I had the time and, well, I guess I had other reasons to head out to Burbank, I decided to make my trip yesterday. All in all, I managed to restrain myself and ONLY pick up a few extra things but it’s so hard to not want to buy everything at Ikea. Since I was in the neighborhood, I grabbed a quick bite to eat at Outback and then brought home some donuts from Krispy Kreme so … all in all, it was a very successful day. More »

Home Decor

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very quiet, very relaxed day for me. After all my running around for the past couple of weeks, I decided not to do a single thing yesterday. No movies, no hang outs, no nothing. I spent most of my day indoors trying to stay cool from the massive heat outside. I did venture out last night to grab dinner but my Monday was one of those no shower days and I loved every minute of it. I did do a few things around my new place. I hung a few more things on my walls, including two pieces that I’ve been dying to put on display in my bathroom. More »
