They’re Heeeeere

Yay! My BFFs Sarah and Mark arrived here in SoCal safe and sound last night, getting underway a week of fun ahead. Because they had to work a full day yesterday, they were not able to fly out until 8pm ET … which meant that they arrived at 10pm PT. Because I keep my home painfully free of anything even remotely resembling nutritious (that is, while I am out of running training — which I need to start up again very soon, not to digress too much) we had to stop off to pick up provisions on our way home. Sarah and I have a LONG history of hours spent at Target so, naturally, that’s where we went. We dropped off food and luggage at my place and then went out for a late bite to eat. We enjoyed a very nice first night together. More »

Spic And Span

I’m very excited to share that my BFFs Sarah and Mark are arriving here in LA from Detroit later tonight for a week of fun here in SoCal. Every time Tori Amos goes on tour, Sarah and I make plans to see her in concert as much as possible. This week we will be seeing her in LA and in San Diego and then next month, I fly back home to Michigan to see her in Detroit and in Toronto, Ontario. Because Sarah and Mark will be staying with me this week, I had to get the West Coast Den of SlackTM cleaned up for their stay and, well, I had to call in a professional to get the job done for me.

Officially Official

Sooooo, yeah, yesterday was pretty sweet. A little over 2 months since I first met them and a little over a month after I officially became a prospect, I was officially voted into the Sons of Anakin Social Club at Disneyland yesterday. Trust me, I understand how this may be a bit confusing out of context for some of you but I can assure it, it was a very good thing. As I’ve mentioned before, I decided to join one of the many social clubs at Disneyland in an effort to make new friends and share a common/crazy love of all things Disney AND Star Wars and yesterday, I was officially “patched in” to the club. Needless to say, I had a great time yesterday becoming a new member of this social club family … but it’s only the start of more fun to come. More »

Movie Review: ‘Snowpiercer’

Yesterday was a very fun day in that I got to spend most of it with my friends Tamar and Caleb. Tam took us to an afternoon birthday pool party in the hills, which was great, and then we made our way back down to earth for a late showing of the indie film Snowpiercer. We’ve been hearing great things about the movie for a few weeks now so we decided to see what all the fuss was about. Having seen the movie myself, I’ve determined that folks either really love Snowpiercer or they really don’t. Tam and Caleb were in the former category, I find myself in the latter. More »

I Choose To Snooze

So, yeah, after quite a few nights out on the town, I decided to stay in an chill like a mofo last night. I guess in the back of my mind I considered going out for a movie or something but I ended up reading magazines on my iPad on the couch and I was already dozing by 8:30 so .. yeah … that pretty must set the tone for the rest of my night here at home. And it was glorious. More »

Celebrating Disneyland’s 59th Anniversary

Yesterday my BFF Ollie and I made our way down to Anaheim, CA to celebrate the 59th anniversary of the Disneyland Resort and we had a smashing time. I know it may sound like an impossibility that I can have so much fun at Disneyland when I go there so much but it’s true, I don’t know how to explain it. Ollie hadn’t been to Disneyland in over a year so it was fun to run around the park and do our fave stuff together. Despite the frequency with which I go to the park, each visit is unique and different. Yesterday was no exception :D More »

Movie Review: ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ In 4DX

Last night my friend Josh and I made our way to the Regal Cinemas at LA Live in DTLA to see a showing of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 4DX. This review of the movie will be broken into two parts … the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes part and the 4DX part. 4DX, for those of you who aren’t aware, is the next generation in the movie-going experience. In a 4DX theater, the room — the seats — adapt to the action that takes place in the movie to make you feel as if you were part of the action. It was a crazy fun experience, let me tell you right off the bat but I am also very happy to relay that Dawn was a superb movie even without all the bells and whistles from the 4DX experience.

Sweet Escape

Last night was a very chill night for me, literally, since the temps have cooled in LA considerably over the past couple of nights. So what do I do when it gets colder? Why, I go out for gelato, of course. I met up with Tamar for a quick bite to eat because I wanted to thank her for everything she’s done for me in recent weeks and we had a really nice hang out session together. After a leisurely sushi dinner, we grabbed some gelato and went for a walk. It was a very nice night, indeed. More »

Welcome Back Party

After the super fun weekend that I got to enjoy celebrating my birthday with my friends, you might expect that I would decide to just stay home and chill out on my Monday night. Yeah, that’s not what happened. The president of my Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin, who was away on vacay for about 3 weeks, made his grand return last night and a bunch of us met up with him at Disney California Adventure for a little welcome back party. The parks were wonderfully empty and the weather was cool & breezy … which meant it was the perfect night of fun at Disney. More »

The Happiest Birthday On Earth

After my pretty epic birthday party Saturday night (thrown for me by my truly amazing friends), I knew I had to get my buns down to Disneyland so that I could properly celebrate my birthday. With rare exception, I’ve celebrated my birthday at Disneyland every year that I’ve lived here in LA so, it simply had to be done. I met up with some of my peeps in the Sons of Anakin social club and we had the best day ever! I’m not sure how your Sunday turned out but my Sunday turned out pretty spectacularly :D More »
