The TV Guide: Honorable Mention

Yesterday afternoon was an insanely beautiful day that I couldn't wait to get out of my apartment so that I could enjoy the great weather. Unfortch, my place is still a shambles but there's plenty of time to clean up when the weather gets gloomy again. I met up with Steph and Alek in the late afternoon to hang out by their pool, drive around in their convertible and head over to The Grove to shop (ie. ogle the shirtless guy who stands in front of the Abercrombie & Fitch store) and see a movie ... here are a few pics from our afternoon/evening together:

You'll be happy to know that we did not buy the Kanye West-esque glasses, we only put them on for the photo. At first we talked about going to see What Happens In Vegas but in the end, decided to go see Made of Honor instead:

Fortunately, we made the right decision. Made of Honor is so cute, even tho it's basically the same best friend falling in love with best friend at the last minute storyline, this movie was handled very well. The storyline never slowed to boring pontification and the characters were actually engaging. Hello, Patrick Dempsey was also shirtless for about 40% of the movie, so that worked in its favor as well. Fans of movies like 27 Dresses will most likely really enjoy this movie too. It makes for a very cute date movie as well.

Tonight, Darion and I are going to see Wicked again ... I bought tickets for tonight's performance because it was announced as Megan Hilty's last performance as Glinda the Good before she leaves the show for 9 to 5. It turns out that her run has been extended to the end of the month so it won't be her last performance ... even still, we're both very much looking forward to see her in the role as Glinda one last time before she leaves the show for good.
