I Scream Social

Yesterday afternoon, Emma and Josh came by new new place to check it out and take me out to lunch and we enjoyed a nice afternoon together. We went out for pizza and ice cream and pretty much ate our faces off. The pizza place we went to was pretty good but the ice cream, yeah, it was NEXT LEVEL. Josh was telling me that the ice cream shop we went to, Quenelle, is one of the best in the country — and he is so right. Of the available flavors right now, I had a hard time deciding which one to get … but after I tasted the Guinness flavor, I knew I found the love of my life. More »

Get A Jobs

My Tuesday was a pretty busy one. In addition to unpacking and settling into my new home, I had a pretty productive day otherwise. I finally have TV again. I originally was hoping to keep my DirecTV subscription but because I cannot install a satellite dish on my balcony (nor would I want to), I decided to go back to AT&T Uverse … which I had installed yesterday morning. Yesterday afternoon, I was interviewed by an author who is writing a book about fandom and wanted to talk to me about my involvement in my Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin. Last night, I was invited to SUPER early screening of the new biopic Steve Jobs which stars Michael Fassbender … which I’m not allowed to review officially so … I can’t say much. But I can say that my Tuesday was pretty great. More »

Getting My Bearings

So, today is the first Monday in my new home and I am already getting nicely acquainted with my new neighborhood. I met up with my new friend Austin for lunch this afternoon and we ran into actor Bruce Campbell (who will be starring in Ash Vs. Evil Dead on Starz this fall) so that was kinda cool. Altho I lived in this general area when I first moved to LA back in 2006, it’s been 6 years since I’ve really spent much time in this part of town and a lot of things have changed. There are lots of new restaurants and bars and while things look familiar, I don’t remember enough to be able to drive around without Google Maps at the ready. So even tho this area isn’t really new to me, it feels new which is fun. More »

Sunday Was Cancelled, Too

Because I was so wiped out from my move day on Friday, I decided to take Saturday off from doing anything. And because I wasn’t finished being lazy on Saturday, I decided to take off Sunday, too. Normally on Sundays, I make my way down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with my friends but I actually slept in a little late, got work done and then decided … nah, I’m not leaving the couch for the rest of the day. I’d like to say that I got some boxed unpacked but I can’t do that. I did manage to rally by the later part of the day to run a few errands but that was pretty much it. This was one Sunday where I decided productivity was not high on my agenda. More »

Saturday Has Been Cancelled

After my very long, very tiring day Friday (my move day), I decided that Saturday was going to be a day for me to get a jump on things and start with the unpacking. What I didn’t realize was that my body had other plans. I was so darn exhausted when I woke up yesterday that I was physically in pain. I did my best to rally and managed to get some work done but I knew I had to lie back down and sleep for a bit longer. A short nap turned into a long nap and then another and then the day was completely gone. I figured, eh … after the stressful week I had last week, I was due for a day … or two … from doing absolutely anything at all. More »

A Whole New World (Again)

OK, so move day went about as smoothly as possible. Nothing was broken, only a few nicks and dings on my stuff and everything got moved within a reasonable amount of time. My internet was installed and working perfectly by the afternoon and I am now IN MY NEW HOME. OMG, I’m so happy. Happy and buried under a pile of boxes … but happy, nonetheless. I didn’t get a chance to post much of anything yesterday cuz I just didn’t have any time. After the movers finished, I decided to take a shower and rest and realized that I didn’t have shower curtains. SO, I slept for as long as I could (about 20 mins.) before Eileen came by to help me out. We did a Target run, grabbed some food and then enjoyed a nightcap before I passed the eff out. More »

Moving Day

Today is moving day and it has been madness, as I’m sure you can understand. I set up my AT&T Uverse internet service to be installed in my new home later this afternoon but I was not told that service in my current place would be turned off the same morning. At 7 AM, right as I was trying to post stuff on the site, internet was turned off and I was S.O.L. I tried to get it turned back on for the morning so I could do a few hours work but, no dice. Ah well, it was probably for the best, I still had some last second things to pack up and get ready for the movers anyways. My guys arrived on time and promptly got to work … and my day flew by in a flurry of boxes and trips up and down the stairs, in and out of cars from one home to the next. More »

My Last Day At The Hollywood Tower

A year ago I moved from my home in West Hollywood to an apartment in the famed Hollywood Tower, in the heart of Hollywood, CA. After 5 years in my condo in WeHo, I was ready for a big change to shake up my life — to expose me to a new part of LA. Having lived in a very quiet neighborhood in West Hollywood, I was ready to live in a more lively area. I considered moving to DTLA but Hollywood seemed like a nice place to get more “city” without having to live in the actual city. My friend Eileen found the listing for an apartment in the Hollywood Tower … I went out to see it and fell in love. Today is my last day living here in the tower and I’m having a bunch of feelings about it. More »

Slowly But Surely

My week of packing was in full swing yesterday as I really got into the nitty gritty of the process. Normally, I’d take 2 weeks to leisurely pack up all of my stuff but because my window of opportunity to jump on my new place and get out of my old place was so short, I ended up with less than a full week to get the job done. That said, I managed to take a huge chunk out of the process yesterday, which was a very good feeling. I worked so hard that I forgot to eat lunch and well past dinnertime, I found myself ravenous and cranky. I made plans to grab a quick bite with Eileen and she agreed to make me happy with a visit to Outback for Aussie Chayze Froys. More »

Playing Tourist For The Day

Yesterday was a really fun day for me at Disneyland. I mean, every day at Disney is fun but yesterday was especially fun. My friends in the social club Mickey’s Empire hosted a Tourist Day theme for the park yesterday and anyone who wanted to participate was invited to dress up as tourists for the day. Now, I don’t really like to play dress up so this kind of thing isn’t usually something I’d be into … but my friend Elena convinced me that dressing up would be fun and she was absolutely right.
