Yesterday Trent gave you guys a few deets about our night out on the town. He was so right to describe the night as magical– it totally was! You should have seen the faux-ish jealousy all over the love of my life’s face. Awesomeness. But it was a special night for me because I got to actually hang with Trent outside of the world of G-Mail Chat. Here are a few fun facts I had to share with ya’ll. Enjoy!

Theater Review: ‘Potted Potter’

The TV Guide

Potted Potter is described as the Unauthorized Harry Experience that gives the audience a very fun, very clever, somewhat interactive overview of all 7 Harry Potter books in just 70 minutes. In addition to a fun run thru the books is the inclusion of a full game of Quidditch midway thru the show. This news alone made it essential that I see this off Broadway show. I’m very glad that I managed to sneak in a chance to see the show because it’s a really great experience for any and ALL Harry Potter fans. More »

A magical night was had, I can assure you. Click below to see some fun photos. More »

Hollywood Gets Serious About Marriage Equality

With George Clooney and Brad Pitt as two of the starring actors, the play “8″ debuted on Saturday night in L.A. Not only were George and Brad in it, but there was a whole lot of other A-list actors involved including Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Bacon, Jane Lynch, John C.
