Happy 100th

As I mentioned yesterday, it is Gay Days weekend at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure and since yesterday was my 100th visit to the parks, I simply had to brave the 100+ temps and get my buns down to Anaheim, CA (NOT that I ever really need a reason to go to Disneyland but …). I am happy to share that I enjoyed a really great day with all the gays in Disneyland as well as a group of friends from the Mickey’s Empire social club. After my fun-filled day, I met up with my good friend Josh Rosebrook for a sushi dinner date/hang sesh … and I managed not to melt to death, so, yay! More »

A Gay Ol’ Time

It’s Gay Days weekend at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure and while it seems like a no-brainer that I would go, especially since my next visit will be my 100th visit since I got my Annual Pass back in 2007, the 100+ degree temperature is really making me think twice. As you are well aware, I’ve been spending quite a lot of time at Disneyland this year, especially since I joined the Sons of Anakin social club. I’ve been monitoring my attendance count and my next visit to Disneyland will officially be my 100th. I suppose it’s fitting that it will be 100 degrees for my 100th visit? More »

Movie Review: ‘Gone Girl’

Last night was a fun but long night for me. I met up with my friend Eileen for a double feature movie date at the Arclight theater in Hollywood for a showing of A Nightmare On Elm Street as well as a showing of Gone Girl. I’ve been anxious to see Gone Girl for months so I really wanted to see it at my earliest opportunity … but I also wanted the chance to see Nightmare on the big screen again. The Arclight screens classic horror films all throughout the month of October and Nightmare was the first movie on my list. Eileen had a free night so she was able to join me and a blast was had by us both. More »

The Healing Process

Last night I made the 1 1/2 drive up to Santa Barbara, CA to see Ryan Adams live in concert and it was one of the better decisions I’ve made all year long. It had been a few years since I’ve seen Ryan in concert and I almost opted out of seeing him live this time around. Ryan is one of my favorite singer/songwriters and I’ve been going to his shows for many years now. In recent years, tho, it has been a bit painful to listen to Ryan‘s music and the thought of seeing him live has stung me for longer than I care to admit. Where music is concerned, my ex and I didn’t really share much of the same interests (if truth be told, his taste in music is generally pretty horrible) but the music of Ryan Adams was one thing that was pretty important to the both of us and, sadly, I’ve been avoiding Ryan Adams ever since my break up. I decided I would not sacrifice my love for one of my favorite musicians for anyone … and I’m happy to share that last night’s concert was really wonderful and really healing for me. More »

Movie Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

Last night I got to hang out with my friend Edward for the first time in forever and we had the best time ever. Edward has been busy flying all over the place so we haven’t been able to hang out much this summer but we finally managed to pick a night that worked for us both and we finally made it happen. Edward invited me to see a movie at the iPic theater in Westwood and I have to tell you, I had the best time at the movies ever. Not only was the movie great but the luxurious setting of the iPic theater was something I won’t soon forget … especially when I see movies in a regular movie theater from here on out. We saw the new ensemble film This Is Where I Leave You and I loved it entirely. More »

Dazed Airheads

Last night was one of those suuuuuuuuuper chill nights that was all super chill and stuff but instead of lounging on my couch at my place, I was able to lounge on the couch with Tamar and Ollie. It was so chill. I met up with the ladies after we picked up random snacks and take-out and we spent the night watching a double feature of Airheads and Dazed and Confused … cuz both movies are so chill and stuff and … yeah, we had fun.

Relief At Last

Yesterday was another Sunday Funday for me and some friends at Disneyland yesterday. Now that the temps have fallen from the low 100s to the much chillier low 80s, hanging out in the sun wearing a denim vest was almost a dream yesterday. After the sun went down, the temps dropped into the high 60s … which is downright FREEZING here in SoCal. I’m closing in on my 100th visit to Disneyland so I guess that calls for some sort of celebration … or something? More »

More Alive!

This month, Darion’s mother Janai Mestrovich published her latest book titled The Grandma Boom Chronicles: More Alive at 65! and she graciously sent me an early copy of the book for review. For the past few weeks, I have been spending as much time as possible reading her book and truly enjoying every word written. Janai is a mother first, yes, but she is also an adept educator and author and getting to see the scholastic side to her personality by reading her words has been a delight. I am nearly finished with the book but last night, I spent a bit of time engaged in More Alive at 65! and I feel compelled to share some of my lurve for the book with all of you today. More »

Happy Birthday, Omar

I want to send out a HEAP of Birthday Lurve to my friend Omar who is celebrating his birthday today … in Paris, France of all places. Omar is my BFF Darion’s boyfriend and for the past 8 months, he has made my friend happier than I have ever seen him before. As such, Omar is a very important person to me and the day of his birth is worth celebrating. Darion and Omar jetted off to London a week ago to kick off Omar’s birthday trip and they made their way to Paris this week to cap off their whirlwind trip. I hope you will join me in sending lots of love their way today as they continue to celebrate Omar’s birthday and their loving relationship. More »
