The strangest thing happened last night at The Go-Go's concert. I was sitting there near the end of the concert and noticed a guy in the section over kind of staring at me. At first I thought it was odd until I looked closer and thought he looked rather familiar.
Once upon a time I took acting classes in LA during the summer of my 12th birthday. The acting school just happened to be owned by Jason Bateman, his sister, Justine Bateman, and their dad, Ken Bateman.
In the same way people can tell you where they were when Kennedy was shot, I can tell you exactly where I was when I first heard The Go-Go's: The year was 1981, I was 8 years old, sitting on my best friend Megan's bed, and we were having a sleepover when she put on a record by The Go-Go's. I thought it was amazing and have been entranced ever since.

There were three opening acts - Bow Wow Wow, The Motels, and the Psychedelic Furs. I love the Furs so much and was stoked to see them live - this is what the stage became when they sang "Pretty In Pink." Loved it!
Hello and welcome to Tuesday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up.
It's been a non-stop few weeks and this weekend didn't get any less eventful. I was hoping to have a little downtime, but that didn't seem to be in my list of things to do. *sigh*
On Friday at work we had a Vegas themed party complete with an Elvis impersonator. The best part was that he seemed to take a shine to me and serenaded me in front of everyone! Crush has the pics, but hopefully I'll get them someday and be able to share them with you. They were too funny! In the meantime, here I am hanging out with Elvis after the serenade. Good times.
It's no secret how much I love the movie Pretty in Pink, especially its three main stars - Molly Ringwald, Jon Cryer, and Andrew McCarthy. I've longed since wanted to meet Andrew and yesterday I finally got my chance.
Andrew was doing a book signing in Pasadena and wild horses couldn't keep me away from getting a chance to meet him. Despite needing to be at the Hollywood Bowl for a concert an hour later, I still had to try to meet Andrew - it's Blaine, for goodness sakes!
And the award for Worst Customer Service and all around Terrible Service goes to DirecTV who, upon learning that our DirecTV satellite receiver was completely dead and unable to be revived, arranged to have a new one sent out in THREE days, despite the fact that we're unable to watch anything on TV, record any shows, oh, and we essentially LOST EVERYTHING THAT WAS ON THE RECEIVER SO FAR. WHAT?!?!?!
I wish we could do ANYTHING other than this terrible excuse for a TV channel. They really piss me off and could give a crap less about their clients.

So, get this - last night we were at the Il Volo concert before it started and I decided to check out Facebook for a minute. What did I see? A picture of my longtime dear friend, Tina, from high school, saying she's at Il Volo. Um, what?!?! I called her up and we immediately went and met up in the lobby. So cool!
For a long time I've heard about how nice Brittany Snow is, but the only time I'd ever seen her was when she was rushing out of a party a year ago and wouldn't stop. So, I wasn't really sure if the rumors were true.
One of the things my dad really wanted to do for his birthday was to see a concert. At first we got tickets to Kris Kristofferson, but then that got cancelled. Luckily, we got wind of one of his fave bands coming to town - the Italian trio, Il Volo.
