On The Road With ‘A Million Miles’

Plans to hang out with friends last night had to be cancelled because of a splitting headache that drove me crazy so instead of suffering in the presence of others, I decided to suffer at home all by myself. The night wasn’t a complete wash, tho. I managed to finish reading one book and I started another so that actually helped me feel a bit better. Our PITNB intern Iris introduced me to GoodReads so I spent some time playing around with the site yesterday and, well, it looks like my attempt at reading more in 2015 is going to be aided muchly by Iris’s kind suggestion.

Catching Up With An Old Friend

Last night I made my way out to Book Soup in West Hollywood to catch up with an old friend … who just so happened to be hosting a book reading and booksigning on her birthday. Actress/author Amber Benson and I go back a few years but it has been a long time since we’ve been able to hang out. We keep in touch via social media but I’m embarrassed to say that it’s been years since we’ve seen one another (I might have been blonde the last time I saw her). When I found out that she was doing a booksigning, I knew I had to head out to see and support her … which I did last night. More »

Hitting The Books

Because I’ve been putting off my reading list for far too long, I decided to spent part of my night in doing a bit of much-overdue reading last night. I’ve been so preoccupied with pretty much everything else going on that I’ve really neglected the books that have been piling up on my nightstand. And because I tend to only read in spurts, I figured now would be a good time to capitalize on my rekindled interest. Of the books that I’d like to get read in the next few weeks, I decided to start with A Million Miles by Amy Fleisher Madden. More »

Día De Reyes

Altho I just spent a really fun day with friends at Disneyland on Sunday, I had to return to the theme park yesterday to partake in the annual Dia de Reyes celebration that they do for guests because I’ve never experienced the celebration before in my life. Growing up in the Midwest, I missed out on a lot of culturally Mexican celebrations that I am now exposed to living here in Southern California. For some time now, I’ve heard about Dia de Reyes but I’ve never partaken in any of the celebrations before. I figure if Disneyland throws a party for the holiday, it might be worth checking out. I met up with my friend Elena at the park last night so that we could attend the parade/party together and we ended up having a blast together. More »

Birthday Drinks With Jeremy

Last night was mostly a quiet night for me. I had intended on staying in the whole night but because my friend Jeremy wanted to get the jumpstart on celebrating his birthday with a get together on the night before his birthday, I decided to get out of the house so that I could celebrate with him. Jeremy is Tamar’s younger brother and he’s really a great guy. Tam’s family are all so special to me that it is always a pleasure to spend time with them in any capacity for any reason. Jeremy invited a group of friends to meet up with him at The Daily Pint in Santa Monica so that’s where we went to get the party started. More »

The First Visit Of 2015

Yesterday was another trademark Sunday Funday for me and my friends in Anaheim — my first of the new year. Altho some of the more eager friends of mine have already been to Disney one or more times since January 1, yesterday was my first opportunity to get down to the theme parks for some fun. As I mentioned yesterday, Saturday was the one year anniversary of the founding of my Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin so it was nice to be the parks with my friends kicking off our second year of existence. Needless today, we had a blast … as we tend do on any given Sunday. More »

The Sons Of Anakin Social Club Turns 1 Year Old

Yesterday was the 1 year anniversary of the official founding of he Disneyland social club that I belong to, Sons of Anakin. Altho the idea for the club was conceived by our founders Eddy and Andreas before the anniversary date yesterday, January 3 was the day that SOA made their first appearance in the Disneyland parks with vests and all. To celebrate the occasion, the members of the group who are in town right now got together at the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA for a little anniversary fete. There was a lot of boozin’ and laughing and, naturally, too much fun. More »

Movie Review: ‘Big Eyes’

Last night I met up with my friends Courtney and Darion at Century City for a dinner/movie/hang sesh and we had a blast together. After we fought of the hordes of people in the very popular food court, we were able to all get caught up with one another since the three of us hadn’t hung out since October. Obvs I love Courtney and Darion individually but when the 3 of us get together, we have the best time ever. After we supped, we made our way over to the AMC Theater to see the Tim Burton film Big Eyes. I’ve been hearing really great things about the movie and I am so happy to relay that all the good things that people are saying are true! The movie is, IMHO, one of Tim Burton‘s best films in years.

The Future Is Now

Yesterday, for the first day of 2015, I was graciously invited to the Levine home for their open house food fest … so I got all dolled up in my best 2015 look and made my way to their home for a few hours. A few hours of eating and talking turned in more hours of eating and talking and, well, I ended up spending the whole day with the fam. Needless to say, I had the best day. Even tho 2015 is only 2 days old, I’m already enjoying it very, very much. More »

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

Welp, another year has come and gone. Last night I met up with Tamar at her place for a sweet hang before we met up with her friends Danielle and Andrea and then we all made our way to their friend Dane’s place for one last hurrah before the new year. While we had a lot of fun, I have to tell you … we were also kind of miserable all night long. The temps have been really cold all week long and last night was downright freezing. Try as we may to have fun at the party, we were all so cold that it really wasn’t the best time ever. To keep warm, I practically stood in the fire pit and drank as much whisky as possible to warm up my insides. Which means, obvs, that I’m not feeling so great today either. OY! More »
