Saturday

My Saturday yesterday was a pretty chill one … in spite of the fact that it was a billion degrees out. I spent most of the day out of the heat and indoors trying not to melt to death. But I did get out of the house after the sun went down a bit to meet up with my friend Gillian for dinner. She and I hadn’t hung out in ages so we were really long overdue. After dinner, I met up with my friend Amelia for a night of goth dancing which we, too, had been planing forever and finally got around two. I enjoyed the company of two amazing women, so I’d say my Saturday was pretty superb. More »

In A Snap

I had plans to hang out with Eileen and Tamar last night but due to a really terrible home emergency, Eileen couldn’t make it out to hang (she’s OK but she’s dealing with a home headache so terrible I can’t even imagine how she is keeping from going insane). Tam and I decided to make it a Netflix and chill night … which meant we hung out on my couch and didn’t really watch TV because we were too busy doing other stuff … like catching up and gossiping. I always have a great time with Tam so even tho the night was quiet, it was a very good Friday night. More »

Unbelieveable Sights, Indescribable Feeling

Yesterday was another fun day for me because I got to spend some time with Duke (and Emma and Josh) all afternoon long before I met up with some friends at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood for a #ThrowbackThursday showing of Aladdin. Josh has been talking about visiting the Japanese Garden in Van Nuys for some time now because not only is it a beautiful place to visit but it is also a place that has been used in many movies and TV shows as what earth will look like in the future. I know it’s weird … but living in LA, where many iconic locales are used in movies, this is the kind of neat-o thing we get to enjoy as Los Angelinos. The movie last night was the best. My friend Elena and I love seeing Disney movies at the El Cap and this time, we let our friend Ginger tag along. Fun Fun Fun. More »

Bidi Bidi Bom Bom

Last night I got an emergency call from my friend Austin that we needed to go out and since I’m never one to not heed a call to action, I got all dolled up and ready for a Wednesday night on the town. Earlier in the day I got my hair did then I met up with Adriana and our friend Haruna’s place for dinner where we agonized over the GOP debate and then made up for our torture by watching clips of Goth Talk from old eps of Saturday Night Live. Then I made my way to WeHo with Austin where we danced the night away to really fun music, including a mini-medley of Selena songs! It was a pretty perfect Wednesday, I have to say. More »

Tuesdays With Duke

Yesterday was a nice, chill day for me. LA woke up to the pouring rain which was so out of character for us that pretty much everything came to a screeching halt. I was able to turn off the a/c and open my balcony door so that the cooler air could freshen up the place. It was nice. I did manage to sneak out of the house after the rain stopped to attend Duke’s swim class and visit with his grandmother who was visiting for a long weekend. Josh’s mom is one of my favorite people so I had to get out to see her, see Duke and have my entire day made. More »

Cheesecake & K-Town

Yesterday I got to spend time with a couple of dear friends who wanted to meet up and discuss things in person, which I really appreciated. Jesse came to my hood for a late brunch at Umami Burger by day and then I met up with Ollie in Koreatown at our fave hangout spot Toe Bang. Jesse and I ate our faces off at Umami and then we went out for a cheesecake dessert so that we could properly celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Golden Girls. Olls and I just ate and drank and talked. We hadn’t had a proper hangout in forever so we were way overdue. More »

Overwhelmed

I’m finding it difficult to write the blog today for much different reasons than yesterday. The outpouring of support and very kind messages from everyone, all around the world has been almost too much for me to handle all at once — y’all are trying to put me out of my misery, right? And then I woke up to read Shannon’s blogpost and that just did it … damn near killed me. I will never be able to properly thank every single one of you, not in any way that can even come close to adequately conveying what you mean to me. I am hopeful that in my remaining time as author of PINTB, I can share with you just how much I love you all. I hope this doesn’t come across wrong but I’m unable to read all of the messages, comments, emails, blog posts, FB posts, etc. because I’m finding it very hard to not fall apart with each new message. I’m going to have to read them in small doses, spaced over time otherwise I won’t be able to function. There is work yet to be done around here, there is fun goss to be had so I plan to do my best to carry on as usual for my remaining time with the blog. More »

The End Of An Era

I’ve been thinking about this particular blog post for some time and now that I am sitting at my computer, writing out these words, I find it difficult to to formulate what it is that I have to say. I suppose the best way for me to get the ball rolling is to treat this news as if I were ripping off a Band-Aid. After September 30, I will no longer be writing Pink is the new Blog. The reality of this fact has been a weight on me for months now and I still haven’t come to terms with it but finally sharing the news with all of you today not only makes it “real” but it forces me to truly begin to process what is about to happen. I’ve been writing this blog professionally for 10 years and I’ve been in the practice of daily blogging for over 12 years … and for the first time in over a decade, I find myself at the end of one chapter of my life and at the beginning of another. I’m sure there will be many questions and I will do my best to answer as many of them as I can. I’ll begin to enlighten further below and will to the best of my ability be as open and honest as I can in my final weeks as author of Pink is the new Blog. More »

Celebrating Tam

Altho we celebrated her birthday last Sunday night, yesterday was actually Tamar’s birthday so her family, friends and I were able to celebrate the occasion of her birth all over again last night. Tam’s parents very graciously invited me to join them for dinner last night and then afterward, a small group of us met up for drinks to cap off Tam’s day. I always have the best time when I get to hang out with the Levine family so even tho we were celebrating Tamar, I kinda feel like I was celebrating too :D More »

Night Out

My Tuesday was supposed to be another lazy do-nothing day but I ended up getting cajoled by my friend Austin to actually go out. And by cajoled, I mean he texted me and said let’s go out. We ended up bar hopping to 3 different places and managed to turn Tuesday night into a fun night out. We drank a bit, danced a bit, repeated those two things a bit. It was actually one of my more adventurous nights. I’ve made it a habit to not really go out much … but now that I’ve got a bud who likes to turn up, I guess I’m back on the turn up bandwagon again.
