12:39 pm - Midlife Crisis....
I met my dad for lunch on Monday afternoon, and THIS is what he rolled up in! Apparently he went out and bought it last weekend. Keep in mind that not more than a month ago he was telling me that he was thinking about not going the whole luxury car route anymore and that he was looking at possible buying a Kia. So at some point, he went from looking at a Kia to getting a Maserati. lol. All i know is that i am looking forward to when he goes out of town so i can borrow it!!!

4:22 pm - Weekend Update....
Aren't you supposed to feel well rested and rejuvenated after a four day weekend?!

Yeah....I am fucking exhausted!

It all started Thursday night when Robert called me and said he and Daniel were at the bar around the corner from my house. Of course I agreed considering that I was not going into work on Friday. That night turned into a shit show and I woke up the next morning feeling like I wanted to die.

After I got my life in order, I made my way to Newport to meet up with Jason and Matt. We passed through about 7 bars before the night was over. Our plan was to take a shot at each bar. This was in addition to the regular cocktails. We succeeded....however I also succeeded in vomiting my guts out while walking home.

Saturday, I woke up and it was blistering hot. I live only one block from the beach so it is typically pretty nice when it comes to weather....but it was seriously unbearable. I called my neighbor Ricky (who i knew would be miserable as well and suggested that we find the closest bar with a/c. Being in a beach city, the vast majority of the bars do not have ac. The Mineshaft (a leather daddy gay bar) was the closest on the list and only two blocks from my house. DONE! We stayed there literally for like 8 hours! Then walked down the street and for some reason ended up in a Latina Lesbian dance club. It was intense. That's all I remember.

Sunday morning I awoke and met Jason, Heather, Brie and Calvin for brunch and after a few mimosas decided that it was a good idea to go to the open roof party at MESA. This proved to be a good idea because the shit was going off! Seriously...so much fun. We left around 9 and headed over to CASA. This is a new bar that isn't even technically open so you have to be on the list and shit to get in, but luckily, after a few phone calls...we got on the list. The place was great. We finished the night at Detroit with a few good night shots.

Monday morning, met a bunch of people for brunch on the peninsula. While sipping mimosas, we decided to take my boat out for a spin in the harbor. So nice! It was nice to just relax and hang out after partying hard for so many days. After the boat, we headed to Mikey's house for some fun in the pool, BBQ and badminton. Great time was had by all but I was glad to go home and try to get some sleep for work today.

Great weekend!

11:37 am - Weekend Update....
Friday night, I had a blast with Alex and Julie. I left the office early and we proceeded to start drinking around 3:00 and basically hit up every bar in Laguna Beach.







Saturday night, I met Chad in West Hollywood for some dinner and drinks. Ate at Tortilla Republic and followed it up with some drinks at Revolver and then a short stint at Rasputin. Both bars were waaaaay too crowded so I decided to meet up with Jason, Heather and Matt at R Bar to finish up the night.

Sunday, I found this AMAZING greek restaurant by my house that seriously is probably some of the best greek food ive ever had. Apparently, that actress from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" is in there every Thursday night for dinner with her family. I think I have a new restaurant obsession.

10:35 am - Denver....
So I just returned home on Wednesday from spending a week in Denver for work. I had never been there before but had heard it was a cool city so I was looking forward to it. i have been a little burnt out with all the travel i have been doing for the past six months, but i have always wanted to go to denver so I was excited.

Let me just tell you that i have never experienced that kind of cold. Literally...it was bone chilling. I have been to some pretty cold places in my life. I spent three months in eastern europe in the dead of winter so i thought i was pretty well prepared...but holy fuck i certainly was not.

I felt like there was no way to get warm. I was wearing every coat that I own at the same time and I was still freezing. I was literally taking taxis to just go one block!!! So it was basically costing me an additional $5.00 just to go one block away and get a coffee. It was insane.

And now on Sunday I am heading to Palm Springs for a few days. From one extreme to another!

9:44 pm - What Was I Thinking...
OK....I think that I have officially lost my mind. I just spent $9,000 on a watch!!!! Some friends of mine own a jewelry store and invited me to their holiday party at the shop tonight. This watch was calling out my name all night and i found myself walking back to look at it over and over again. My friend told me to wear the watch for a bit and I walked around the party chatting with people here and there with the watch on. Then...as I was about to leave, i was taking the watch off to give it back. I asked my friend how much it was. "It's $12,000 but i can give it to you for $9,000" he replied. All I could say was "I fucking hate you" as I handed him my card. Looks like all my loved ones are gonna get some pretty shitty gifts this year! lol

12:41 pm - Hiking....
So my friend Drew and I were hiking this past weekend and about an hour in to the hike, we came across this trailor that has a big wave and surfboard attached to it. It was literally in the middle of the woods. I have no idea how it got there. Now of the paths around were big enough for a car or truck to drive up but somehow, it was there. Just chillin in the woods. So bizarre. Of course we had to get some pictures on it...

9:36 pm - Some new pics...
Last week in Costa Rica. This is Heather an I walking to the bar of our friend's restaurant in Costa Rica. No cares in the world.


Heather and I at the Boulevard on Monday night. Nothing like being completely trashed at 8:30 on a Monday night! And I am really not sure why I appear so extremely hairy is this picture.

2:52 pm - What a Trip....
Well I returned from Costa Rica on Sunday. What a fucking trip. Have a few near death experiences.

First of all...I lived through the 7.6 earthquake for starters. And let me just premise this by saying that living in Los Angeles, I am well versed in earthquakes and they don't really scare me. However, that 7.6 was the craziest thing ever, It literally knocked me off my feet. I had to crawl on the ground it was shaking so hard. But I'm fine and no one was hurt around me.

Two days before the earthquake, I was caught in a flash flood about three hours into the jungle and our van started to be taken away by the river. Let me just say that it was one of the scariest experiences of my entire life. After we all were able to get out of the van safely....we were stuck there deep in the jungle. No cell phones. In the pouring rain. Finally after about two hours, some farmers came down the road in a pick-up truck and we were able to hitchhike up the road a little ways until we reached the bridge that had since been covered by a roaring river. The only way out was to walk one by one across a railroad tie across the entire river. It was the scariest shit ever. One slip and i would have fallen into the rapids and been taken down the river.

Anyways....returned home Sunday night and don't think I have ever came home from a vacation more exhausted than when I left. lol

There was some fun times though. All in all, it was a great trip. And definitely one that I won't soon forget.

Got back to work and immediately had to go into an audit which I will be in until tomorrow. I fucking hate audits.

But Im leaving for San Diego on friday for a little weekend trip with my friend Bobby who I havent seen in two years since he moved to Baltimore for work. So excited!

11:25 am - Outfest 2012!
Last week, I was invited to a few of the Official Outfest parties and needless to say, that by the time the weekend arrived, I was completely exhausted and didn't even feel like drinking or talking to anyone.

I had a bunch of friends that were involved with a few of the projects so I got my shit on the list bitches.

This was taken at the Wednesday night party for Comedy/Musical category and the party was held in the Project Runway Lounge. I wanted to shoot myself in the face the next morning at work.

11:35 am - Weather....
So it seems that between my facebook and my livejournal.....everyone around the country is doing a lot of complaining about hot it is. It's absolutely beautiful here in SoCal. Honestly, I have to travel to a lot of cities in America for work and one thing that i say in almost every city i go to is..."Why the fuck would anyone choose to live here?" I mean seriously....I don't know why everyone doesn't want to move to Southern California. Well here is the temp in my hood.
