After reading Wil Wheaton's Blog ( for those who don't know he played Wesley Crusher from Star Trek The Next Generation ), he mentioned that he was a huge fan of Poltergeist and that it was playing at a local theater in South Pasadena at Midnight. I have only seen Poltergeist in the Drive in back in 82 when it came out and thought it would be great to see it again in a movie theater. So my friend Bruce, Harry and I went to see this classic horror movie. Not many people were there about 30 or so and I expect many more but it was a lot of fun. An extra surprise was that Wil Wheaton and his wife sat right in front of us. Both Bruce and I held back our geeky fanboy reaction and enjoyed the movie. I was so tired but it was well worth it... great fun.

Well today has not been a great day. Woke up and had breakfast with my friend Christopher. Planned on relaxing all day. Breakfast went great and as I was driving home I noticed that my brakes were making noise. My brakes have been sqeaking the past few weeks but now they are starting to grind (that's not good). So now my weekend was going to be spent getting my brakes fixed. I get home and go and ge a soda and realize that our fridge is not working.. yep.. the fride died last night sometime and everything has been slowly defrosting. So Harry and I went to Best Buy to buy a new fridge and since I was going to buy a new one I wanted a side by side one with water and ice in the door. We found a decent Wirlpool for $900 but on sale for $799.00 so we got that one but since it was past 7pm they can't deliever it till Monday. So we are trying to rescue our frozen foods and hope we can keep them semi cold till then. And if that wasn't bad enough I was hanging some pictures up and standing on the side of the couch and guess what.. it cracked and broke. So one side of our couch in now broken. So this nice relaxing weekend turned into a money pit. And just when I had enough money to put some into my saving.. guess I should be happy that I have the money to buy a new fridge and brakes.. the couch is going to have to wait.

I just got an email informing me that my services were not going to be required for Season Two of Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Seems that the new Co-Ep of the show is going to bring his "own" Post Production Supervisor. I don't know why.. but I had a feeling I wasn't going to be asked back if there was a second season.. not sure why. Oh well.. life goes on. I'm here at Curl Girls until the end of Dec. and then I'll move on to bigger and better.

Entry for October 15, 2006 - "Little" Outing
Well today was my first outing with my new "little" brother Nico, he's 8. The funny thing is his older brother also got a new "Big" brother the same day and we both got there at the same time to pick up our "little’s".Nico and I went to Sherman Oaks Castle Park. He loves golf and video games so I thought this would be the perfect place. We played two rounds of miniature golf, and he isn't bad. He got the only hole in one shot of the day. After golf we went inside and played a few video games, we played some ice hockey and then a two player X-men fighting game. We decided to take a break from video games and had some lunch. I got a burger and fries and he wanted pizza. You could buy it by the slice so I asked for one slice for him.. but he said he wanted two. I knew there was no way he was going to eat two slice, they were pretty big slices, but I also knew he didn't get breakfast. Well I was right.. he ate half a slice and wanted to take the rest home. Oh well .. now I know how much food to get him while we are out. After lunch we decided to play games that would give up tickets, you get enough tickets and you can redeem them for small prizes. We played and played and amassed about 465 tickets. So Nico had fun spending all of them and of course got a bunch on small toys and tootsie rolls. It was a fun time and a great first outing.
