Social, Media and otherwise

Hi there. I haven’t been home in the evening since Monday. And the trend is not stopping.  Sorry for the pauses in posting. Monday night I was at Face2Face: Elton John and Billy Joel concert.  I treated James, my fellow piano man, to this as his belated birthday and early Christmas presents.  We enjoyed ourselves tremendously.  Billy Joel rocked my socks off and Elton John wowed me silly.  I got a few horrible cell phone video clips I’ll post later. Yesterday, our former colleague Erin returned to the office to temp for a week while she’s on break from school. ...

Long Weekend

This weekend has been one of the longer ones I had in a while. Don’t get me wrong, I still had just 2 days like everyone else, but it felt like a week. I guess when you helped others, pampered yourself, and did things you love, it was just as rewarding as a weekend away on a vacation. It’s hard to belief that I voluntarily rolled out of bed at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning, but I did.  I was up to bake chocolate croissants to take over to my friend Greg’s garage sale fundraiser for his very first AIDS...

Spamtastic Wednesday

Spamalot preview at the Music Center was a lot of fun. Oh, look. There’s a giant can of SPAM! As the group ticket coordinator, I was invited to preview the show coming to LA in July. I brought Nhien along. Poor girl has not the knowledge of the Monty Python and the Holy Grail or anything Pythonesque. Her and a few others were wondering why there were mylar balloon cows everywhere. John O’Hurley is hilarious. We can hardly wait! The usual grainy movlog video here:...

That thing I do

I have been staying up passed my bed time this week.  Case in point, see time stamp. It seems I just have a lot I want to do and I’m excited about all of them.  I’ve been busy updating my experiences at the Temple and at the food blog with my cooking binge. I can’t tell you enough how much joy cooking give me.  Now even more joyous that Brandon has the monopoly on dishes.  It was like a runner’s high for me.  I feel awesome having cooked something we can both enjoy.  So I’ve been indulging in that little...

Onward to 2009

Not resolution.  Goals. Back in my Taekwondo days, our master had us turn in our 10 goals for the year and recap what you’ve accomplished the year before.  Guess I’ll start that tradition here on the blog this year. 1. Explore Kung-fu.  I did like Taekwondo but as strange as this may sound I’m looking to do something more flow-y.  Dance-like.  Capoiera would be cool to explore too. 2. Drink more water: one glass in the morning and one before bed.  Ah, the yearly goal.  I tend to give up after trips to the bathroom in the middle of the...

This too shall stick

If I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head since I’ve seen it on The Graham Norton Show Christmas Special, you shouldn’t be able to either. Here. Have yourself some Tim Minchin. ETA: Brandon sent this to me from Explosm.net after my attempts to get the song above out of my head all day yesterday.  True dat!...
