Highs & Lows

Welp, I had a very interesting past 24 hours … full of amazing highs and, unfortunately, a pretty shitty low. Thankfully, the highs outweigh the lows but still … well, yeah, it’s been interesting. Last night, Darion and I made our way to downtown LA for a double feature of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Craft. While we had the BEST time ever, I was very shocked to discover that my beautiful not-even-a-year-old car was viciously vandalized in the lit, attended parking lot I parked in. As upset as that made me, I couldn’t wallow because this morning I started my first day of marathon training with Team 2 End AIDS. See what I mean? Highs and lows. More »

Yesterday we learned the not-entirely-surprising news that Lindsay Lohan was reportedly found in an unconscious state in her hotel room near the set of her new Lifetime made for TV movie Liz & Dick. Thankfully, the hullabaloo turned out to be much ado about nothing. Paramedics were called and they determined that there was nothing wrong with Lindsay at all. Today we get to see a new photo of Lindsay on the set of her film late yesterday, hours after her medical scare working late into the night. As you can see in the photo below, Lindsay is fully conscious and seemingly hard at work. More »
