Top Five LOL Animals of the Day

Duran Duran at the Belasco Theater

Last week I unexpectedly scored a ticket to see Duran Duran at the Belasco theater in LA. The surprise concert had just been announced and tickets sold out in five minutes. Initially I didn't get a ticket and was super bummed, so as soon as I saw that my friend had an extra, I jumped at the chance.
Actually, that's not entirely true. My DD loving heart jumped at the chance, but my practical mind said I shouldn't spend the money. My supportive and loving husband is the one who convinced me I had to go and I'm so glad he did! I had a blast!
When I arrived at the venue, I saw a ton of my fellow Duranie friends camped out for spots. As I didn't care as much about standing close inside (and would prefer getting a picture with Nick), I waited at the stage door.
It took a bit longer than expected, but as I showed you the other day (hey, I can never show off this picture enough), I was able to get a new picture with Nick. Hooray! I probably should have stayed to see the rest of the guys arrive, but they had started letting everyone inside and I wanted to get a seat, if at all possible.
The theater was super small and intimate. There really wasn't a bad seat in the house. Actually, there were hardly any seats in the house, but I did manage to score one to the right of the stage.
It was perfect! I could see Nick perfectly, which is really all I need.
My friend Nicole took this shot and I love it. I tried from my spot, but Nick looks all washed out.
Here I was rocking my $10 t-shirt that I'd bought on the street before the show.
Tried to get a better pic of Nick, but it's a tiny bit blurry.
Loved all they did with the projection behind them. SO cool.
Halfway through the show I realized my t-shirt was on inside out. Oops. Here it is the right way.
Some of these are my crummy shots and some were posted by the band itself. This, obviously, was not one of mine.
I do like this view, though!
 At the end of the show, the band did a beautiful tribute to Prince, which I loved.
This is the fun couple I sat next to - they were a lot of fun!
And these are my fellow Duranie friends. Loved seeing them and bonding over our fave guys. So happy I went!
Behold, their amazing set list. Great show!!!

Pinky's Fandance - Simon LeBon

As you probably know, Simon LeBon is the lead singer of my beloved band, Duran Duran. He's a terrific showman and always puts on a great performance.
I'd only gotten a picture with him once before a long, long time ago and I pretty much had to beg him for it. This time was a much better experience. Plus, the look on his face is priceless!

Sweetie Sammy

Sammy Rhodes appears to have confiscated my $10 Duran Duran shirt.
I fear I may never get it back again.

Celebrity Wrap Up - Saturday Edition

Hello and welcome to Saturday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
Be still my beating heart.
How cute is this? Michael's ex and current girlfriend embracing. Love it.
Mark Hamill visited a children's hospital in London on Star Wars day. Way to go, Luke!
Again, will someone please tell me how she gets invited anywhere? Also, why is she dressed like recycled trash?
Was he sticking his tongue out on purpose? Thoughts?

Top Five LOL Dogs of the Day

Actors for Autism Event

Have I mentioned how busy we've been lately? It's like every second of every day for the past few weeks has been planned. Luckily we've got a free day on Saturday and two free nights this week. Hooray! Let's see how long those last....
On Sunday night we were invited to attend a really special event put on by Actors for Autism.
We had a lot of fun and were so grateful to be included in the event. Loved seeing so many friends there, too!

Pinky's Fandance - Rachael Taylor

Rachael Taylor is adorable. I loved her on Grey's Anatomy as Dr. Lucy Fields and would love to see her character return someday. Hey, it could happen, right? I mean, they didn't kill her off, just sent her to Africa...
However, she is a bit busy right now with a little show called Jessica Jones, which is incredible. We were able to see the premiere last night at a screening (yes, I know the entire first season is already out on Netflix, but it was cool to see it on the big screen with the cast) and we totally loved it. I can't wait to see what happens next! Rachael was really cool after the Q&A and happily took, well, three photos with me (this one was my fave). Thanks, Rachael!

Happy Star Wars Day!

Celebrity Wrap Up - Friday Edition

Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
While I appreciate the fact that this dress was made out of recycled materials, I just wish it didn't look like it was made from a Hefty cinch sack.
Hi, the '90s are calling. They'd like their dress back.
Um, are they missing Gwyneth's costume? Come on.
She's aware we can see her bum, right?
You've gotta be kidding me with this.
