Post Holiday Update!

I don't have much to say that hasn't already been said by John on his blog. All in all it was a lovely holiday, and the Verive clan experience was quite fabulous! Cold cuts, raviolis and all!

Yesterday at work, I helped a minor celebrity find some CD's in my store!

Nancy Lenehan, you'll recognize her when you see her, (pictured here) Really the only reason I was able to figure out who she was is because I spent like 20 minutes trying to find her items, and then placed a special order for her.

Cool stuff!

Back Already?!?

That's right, after only being gone for 38 hours, we have returned to our humble Hollywood abode ready to crash for the night after the whirlwind of events that have taken place in the aforementioned hours....

We left Hollywood around noon on Friday, and made it up to Los Altos Hills in just over 5 1/2 hours... Spent a lovely evening with my family celebrating what semblance of Christmas you can have six days early. It was quite nice, and we came away with some interesting booty - most notably an XBox and a Dijeridoo (how the hell do you spell that?)

This morning, we left my parents house, and ventured to Monterey for Matt and Meli's wedding. After some worse-than-I've-ever-seen-in-LA traffic crossing over cursed Highway 17, we arrived in Monterey and enjoyed the intimate, 20 guest (including bride, groom and bridal party) ceremony and reception before making the drive back to LA. It was a beautiful wedding and I want to wish Matt and Meli all the happiness in the world! (We were all just a little jealous that they are headed off to Germany and Spain for their honeymoon!)

But we survived, and had an eventful and pleasant, although exhaustingly brief visit to the Northern Lands. I SWEAR next time we come up we will make time to visit with everyone.... And people are more than welcome to make the trek to come see us........

Back to work tomorrow for the last four shopping days before Christmas!

First Star Wars Celebrity Sighting!

Today, as John and I wandered through The Grove to finish up our Christmas shopping, we saw (with large bags overflowing with holiday goodies!) yet another celebrity!

Greg Proops!

Today's celebrity sighting was quite exciting...

He was in the store, browsing through the history section.....

The one and only Noah Wyle!

It was quite exciting, and he was quite the cutie!

I just played my first online poker game solo, and I came in fourth place out of nine!

Not bad considering I'm pretty much a novice at poker, especially Hold'Em!


A Whole Lotta Nothing

Here I am, enjoying a day off, and John is off working on a shoot for a little indie short film.... so I have the place all to myself, and I have NO motivation whatsover to do ANYTHING!

But I have earned it, right?

Things seem to be mellowing out a bit at Verive's Hollywood. Having Andrew and Jodi come to visit for Turkey Day made the whole place feel more like home. And now that our Christmas tree is up and the shopping has begun for the greatest of all holidays, I am in better spirits than ever!

Happy holidays!
