Ok, where to start...I saw way too many stars last night at the SAG Awards :) When we first walked in I saw my two favorite characters from Entourage (Turtle & Eric):

As I stood along the wall, waiting to be seated, Will Smith and Jamie Fox walked by. Within a few minutes, I was quickly whisked off to run/walk through the chairs and tables along the front of the stage to find an available seat. As I was maneuvering through the tables and chairs, I was abruptly stopped by Warren Beatty, who was getting up from his seat. He gave me kind of a disgruntled look, but I just smiled and waited for him to move along. Then I looked up and right in front of me was Leonardo DiCaprio. I paused for a moment and commented on how good looking he was to myself, fanned my face and moved along. I kept on moving, but the Seatfiller supervisor abuptly stopped and told me to take a seat right next to Carol Burnett. I calmly sat down and tried to get my composure back and as soon as I did, I was tapped on the shoulder to get up from my seat :(. We were instructed to stand back in line if we get up from our seats, so I quickly moved back to the line as the show was about to start.

I peered out at the show from the line for a good 1/2 hour and could see Dave sitting right in the middle of the audience near Forest Whittaker, Leonardo and Kiefer Sutherland. After what seemed like hours, I finally found myself back at the front of the line. Julie Andrews was getting her Life Achievement Award, when I was seated again. This time I was sitting at the Desperate Housewives table, and nearby was the Sopranos table. Then Shawn Pyfrom from Desperate Housewives tapped me and as I started to get up I noticed the seat right next to him was open...so I scooted over, because I was not about to stand in that long line and miss the show again.
Here is a pic of Shawn (Bree's son):

Turns out I was sitting in Eva Longoria's seat, because she decided to head off to the after party early with her fiance. Here are some pics of others at this table and I'm sure everyone knows who Terri Hatcher is:


From where I was sitting I could see Dave right in the middle of the room. I wish so badly I had a camera with me, because I had a beautiful view of James Gandolfini, Leonardo, Dave then Kiefer Sutherland right in a row. Of course, I saw many other stars like Eddie Murphy, Annette Benning, the Grey's Anatomy crew, Felicity Huffman, Jennifer Hudson, Mary Tyler Moore and cast, Julie Louis-Dryfus, America Ferrera, Christian Slater, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker and Steve Carrell, who I was really looking forward to seeing...I think he is hilarious on The Office and Little Miss Sunshine. Anyway, all in all a very fun and surreal experience!! I wasn't on TV again, but Dave was several times. He was sitting near Helen Mirren and Forest Whittaker when they won their awards.

It's been a busy week, as I drove up to San Jose (5 hr. drive one-way) for an interview. I'll post more on this subject in the next couple of weeks :)
On my way back down to LA, I stopped by the house I lived in, when Dylan and I left San Jose to move to Las Vegas a couple of years ago. My landlord sold the house, when Dave (Dylan) and I moved out and now they are rebuilding the house. It was sold for $550K and they plan to sell it for $2 million when it is complete. Here is a before and after picture:
Before (the day we left for Vegas in October, 2003)

After (Thursday, January 25th, 2007)

I also drove down memory lane to my Elementary, Jr. High, High School and the house I grew up.
I have not been able to get used to the name Dylan for Dave, so I'm now going back to calling him Dave again. I figure we'll name our first born son Dylan someday ;) I'm looking forward to tomorrow...Dave and I will be going to the SAG Awards! Watch us on TV at 8pm on TNT or TBS.

We are going to the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards this Sunday, as SeatFillers for the stars, so we will definitely be on TV this time. You'll probably see me sitting behind Patrick Dempsey or Leonardo DiCaprio. It's on at 8pm this Sunday, January 28th on TNT and TBS (cable station).

Last Sunday, Dylan and I went for a 5 mile hike uphill at Mt. Lowe in Altadena (Pasadena). There was a beautiful view from the top of the mountain...check out the pics:

Not sure you can tell in the pics, but I have lost 20 lbs. since I moved to LA six months ago. I'm watching my calories and working out all the time.

I am currently watching the Golden Globes and wish I was there :( I was chosen at 356 on the Wait list to join everyone in the bleacher seats, but at $2400 a seat and being unemployed, I was not able to attend. And on my way home from an interview today, I tried to sneak in, but security is more strict than it ever has been. Anyway as a consolation, I did get to see most of the stars close up last week at the People's Choice Awards :) And I was not chosen in the yearly raffle to join the bleacher seats for the Oscars, so don't look for me there either.
Anyway, this week has been a little slow for excitement, but I did hang out with my friend from San Jose...Donna in Hermosa/Redondo Beach on Friday. No pics of us together, but here are a couple from the day:

As a side note, I am currently on a "Master Cleanse", which is basically fasting for 10 days and I'm now on Day 3. It's actually kind of interesting, as I am learning so much about how bad my body was mistreated throughout the years and at the same time I feel really euphoric. Hopefully, through all this I'll lose some weight too :)

What a wonderful night! I went to the People's Choice Awards tonight and saw so many stars.
Oscar Red Carpet 2
I was in the pit in the front of the audience and got to shake Patrick Dempsey, Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria and Vince Vaughn's hand as they accepted their awards. I was about 5 feet from the Grey's Anatomy stars and Desperate Housewives (Eva & Felicity) the entire night. There is a really good shot of me shaking Vince Vaughn's hand at the end of the show and I'll try uploading it soon! I saw soo many other stars, since I was right at the front, but don't have enough time to post them all. I was not able to get pics of them, but here are a couple of pics as the show was ending:

Eva, Vince and Queen Latifah walking off stage.

Dylan and I also met each other 9 years ago today!

Check out my new websites and pictures on the left side of this page :) Be sure and watch America’s Funniest Videos this Sunday, January 7th, as there will probably be a quick shot of Dylan and me in the audience and The People’s Choice Awards on Tuesday, January 9th, because I’ll be filling seats for the Celebrities as they step out and go to the restroom or get out of their seat for any reason. Also, my all time favorite celebrity will be there…MATT DAMON!!! Let’s hope I don’t pass out!

And here it is…the movie we have all been waiting for!!!
Below is the video all about me and my family (Part 1 of our Christmas present to my parents). See Emily's video below (posted 12/28/06) for Part 2. Dylan obviously edited this one ;) I have received a few email responses, but not so many comments, so please feel free to email me your comments, as well.

Here is the video:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Happy New Year 2007
Dylan and I rang in the New Year at Hermosa Beach (my favorite place in the world) with my great friend from San Jose...Katie and her boyfriend Todd!
Here's a couple of pics from the night:


Anyway, this year is going to be the best, as I can only go up from here! Hopefully, I'll get a job this month and we'll be able to stay in LA. But enough about the bad...it's all going to workout. I have a few friends and relatives in Colorado and I hear the weather is not the best out there, so I hope things look up for you, as well.
