I think it’s always when I particularly don’t want to do things that I always end up saying “I’m so glad I did!” For instance, Friday: It was pretty dreary out and I had just spent the last few hours at my desk drinking some celebratory champagne (we just got a new GM) and indulging in a vanilla Sprinkles cupcake. Basically, I was toast (doesn’t take much).
After running a few errands (note: I was sober at this point), I decided to go home and lay low. My friend and I were texting each other the usual: “What are we going to do tonight?” But seeing as nobody wanted to join us on an epic night adventure, I figured I’d call it a night and go to bed early.
Not so fast! Said friend wasn’t having any of it, so I got dressed and went to pick her up. We ended up at Trousdale and I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it (I had only been there once for an event), but needless to say we had ourselves a good time.
Why, you ask? The sightings, of course!
First up: Cuba Gooding Jr. Where has he been lately? I have no idea, but he was getting down on the dancefloor. Allow the hilarity to ensue. Show me the money, Cubes.
After admittedly getting turned away from VIP TWICE (you’d think after the first time we’d feel defeated, but alas we forged on; we didn’t have the necessary blue wristband that half of our group managed to get), somehow, someway, we got in. I really don’t remember how it happened, but I think we can attribute it to Taryn’s friend Joe.
We get in and the first person we see is Lamar Odom. We were hoping a Kardashian was going to pop out, but I knew better: they were all in Vegas for Kim’s 30th birthday. Womp womp.
Next up? Ryan Phillippe. Yes ladies, I’ll go ahead and confirm: he looks amazing for a father of two. He’s short (in my opinion), but I was wearing 5” heels, so one could only assume that he was around 5’9”/5’10”. It kind of weirded me out that he was a dad and was at a local LA haunt though. Guess dads gotta get their mack on too! Haaaaay!
I guess it was curly hair night because we ended up at a booth with Matthew Morrison. My Glee sightings are becoming more frequent. I’ve yet to see Lea Michelle, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera or Heather Morris. Maybe by the end of this year I’ll see them all? He seemed to be just hanging with a friend and looked to be having a great time.
I like how I still get excited seeing celebrities. At least I’m not jaded! It’s fun seeing people you recognize out and about.
