Last night I went back to the El Capitan for a second helping of the 1955 Disney animated classic Lady and the Tramp, this time with my friend Charlie and her friend Eric. Charlie and Eric kindly invited me to see the movie with them (after she saw that my friend Elena and I saw the movie on Friday night) and I happily went back for more. Any opportunity to spend time with Charlie is something I’m always interested in so it was an easy decision for me. The movie was just as cute as it was on Friday night and I got to spend time with Charlie and Eric so, yeah, my Monday night was great! More »

My Sunday was so jam packed with people I love that it had to be one of the best days that I enjoyed in a very long time. I had two birthday parties to attend (well, 1 and 1/2 actually) before I met up with Tamar for a show date before I made my way to the Echoplex to dance my buns off at the latest Smiths / Morrissey dance party night at Part Time Punks. Spending my day with my friend Jesse and his family and my friends Emma and Josh and their newborn son was just perfection. My night was pure, unadulterated fun. It was a true Super Sunday Funday!

My friend Elena and I met up for a fun movie date at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA last night for a special screening of the 1995 Disney animated film Lady and the Tramp. As you may know, I am very fond of seeing movies at the El Cap because the Disney-owned theater is famous for screening both new and classic Disney films year-round. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the El Capitan is showing this classic Disney animated film for one week. As big Disney fans, Elena and I made plans to see Lady and the Tramp on opening night — which was last night — and we had the best time ever. More »

Last night I got to spend some amazing quality time with my new little homie Duke Julian and his parents Emma and Josh for the first time since I met the little man about an hour after he was born last Sunday. Truth be told, I’ve been itching to see Duke again since his birth day last weekend but it took all of my strength to just sit back and wait a few days until the newly expanded family got settled back home. Yesterday was Josh’s birthday so it was the perfect excuse to see my friend for his birthday … and then ignore him so I could fawn all over his adorable baby son. More »

Last night, for the first time ever — at long last — I finally attended my first professional basketball game here in LA. I’ve lived here for almost a decade and in all those years, I’ve never been to a LA Lakers or a LA Clippers basketball game. I’ve been to many baseball games (both the Dodgers and the Angels games), I’ve been to hockey games (both the Kings and the Ducks games) and I’ve even been to a few soccer games (to see David Beckham in action with the Galaxy) but I’ve never been to a basketball game … until last night.

This September, Disneyland will be hosting the 10th anniversary of the Disneyland Half Marathon shortly after the theme park celebrates its 60th anniversary and yesterday, registration for the Disneyland Half went on sale. Because of all the anniversary fun going on this year, I happily signed up to run my 4th Disneyland Half Marathon in a row … but it will likely be my last. I’m not giving up running half marathon races (yet) but the insane cost of running these races at Disney is starting to get out of hand. Actually, the cost of these races has been out of hand for some time now but for me, I think I’ve reached my limit. I’m very much looking forward to running the Disneyland Half again later this year as I know it will be a very special anniversary run … but the more I think about it, the more I realize it’s probably time to stop spending so much money on running races at Disney.

You’re probably not going to believe this but I actually FINALLY started reading the Marvel Comics event Civil War for the first time yesterday, just hours before it was formally announced that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures reached a deal to allow Spider-Man to be included in future Marvel Cinematic Universe films, including next year’s Captain America: Civil War. For years now, I’ve been hearing about how significant the Civil War event was to the Marvel Comics Universe and since I’ve been on a comic book kick lately, I decided now was the time to read the whole thing. The news about Spider-Man actually broke while I was about 4 issues into the Civil War event so, yeah, it was really good timing. More »
So yesterday was a really fun day for me. I awoke to a text from my dear friend Emma that she was on her way to the hospital to give birth to her firstborn child … the text came at 1:44 in the morning, I didn’t see it until 7 AM. I freaked the eff out, ran to the bathroom to start getting ready to bold out the door, texting Emma, Josh and Emma’s sister Chelsea immediately to find out if the baby had been born yet. Thankfully, he hadn’t been born yet so Chelsea and I planned to get breakfast near the hospital while we waited for the hallowed birth of this beautiful baby boy to occur. Well, he did keep us waiting for most of the day so I was able to get some work done in the meantime but by mid afternoon, Duke Julian made his grand entrance into the world and, let me tell you … he is beautiful.

I just woke up to very exciting news … my BFFs Emma and Josh are having their baby today!! After seemingly YEARS of waiting, Emma finally started going into labor in the wee hours this morning and is currently drugged up and waiting the baby’s arrival. I’m in the process of wrapping up a few things here at home before I make my way to the hospital for the hallowed event … so, I apologize, but posts on the blog may be lacking today. Because babies are always so punctual with their arrivals, I’m certain that he will be born today so I don’t expect to be out of blogging commission for long :D More »
My mini obsession with comic books continues into the weekend now that I have learned that the entire Spawn comic book series is now available in digital form. I started reading and collecting Spawn comic books when they first came out back in 1992 but after a couple of years, my interest waned and then fell off completely. I’ve wanted to go back and read the series from the start but the thought of having to collect all of the now 250 issues of the comic was just too daunting a task to consider … until now. For the first time ever, the entire Spawn series is available in digital format and until 2/9, they are available for purchase as a bundle on Comixology at a 62% discount — which is a damn good deal. Needless to say, my goal of reading the entire series is now back on track. More »
