in dessert, movies

No fried dough on this site for National Donut Day, but a couple of furry celebs!

Sighting #1:


My favorite American Idol contestant, Casey Abrams!!! We spotted him on the corner of Larchmont and Beverly, as we drove by to pick up frozen yogurt.


Had a 1/2 off coupon for $10 worth of dessert – this is what $11.50 looks like at Twirl


Started with a waffle bowl – filled with berries, kiwi, mango, and pineapple


Only room for one flavor!!!


Toppings: Peanut Butter Chips and Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds



A few hours later I noshed on a Jazz apple that I snuck into the movie theater


We watched “Beginners” – a film that we rushed to see on opening night for one reason only…


…NOT Ewan MacGregor (though he was terrific too)


COSMO!!! (Who you may also recognize from “Hotel for Dogs” and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”)


The movie itself was truly wonderful – but guess WHO was at the Q&A after last night’s screening?!?


That’s right:


And I thought seeing Casey was exciting!!! This is the celeb meeting of the century!!!

FYI – these used vegetable dye around his eyes to make him look more JRT-ish in the film


A perfectly behaved dog but of course my own Julius Chenwald is the greatest of all the furry beasts I know.


(Am now prepared to get hit with a bunch of spam from this post’s title…)

That is such an adorable dog.
I love fro-yo. That looks so good.

The doggie is so cute! Can’t wait to attend the premiere, it’s on Tuesday night in Paris. Was Melanie Laurent at your premiere? She’s slowly becoming the new Marion Cotillard.

As always your treats look SO delicious! Never heard of chocolate covered sunflower seeds, genious!

OMG Cosmo!! I never knew his name but have seen him in those movies, he is absolutely adorable with you all paws up style!

9 Emily @ Savory and Savage June 4, 2011 at 11:43 am

Lol, great title to your post and yes, brace yourself for spam…

I can’t believe you got to meet Cosmo !!!!!

10 Lynn at The Actors Diet June 4, 2011 at 3:41 pm

11 Monique June 4, 2011 at 12:02 pm

I loveeee dogs and they’re both adorable :) How fun that you got to go and do that!

Doug loves to go to Bricks and Scones in your hood to think and write.
I told him to check out the Larchmont Bunglow for the bread pudding muffins you love so much. Well…..thank you and damn you all at once. We are half-way through a choco-chip version. An insane, comforting, delicious, outrageous treat indeed!!! Thanks for the intro.

13 Lynn at The Actors Diet June 4, 2011 at 3:40 pm

oops! sorry! (and you’re welcome)

14 Amanda June 4, 2011 at 1:45 pm

Kaitlin is going to be so jealous of your AI sighting! hahaha

I love pup celebs. Too cute!

15 Eden June 4, 2011 at 1:55 pm

Does it make me a loser that I had no idea who Casey was?
But thanks to your blog, I am informed.
Umm and that dog may be cuter than Ewan…..almost.

Peanut butter and jelly flavored fro yo?! I am so jealous! The best flavor my fro yo place is birthday cake…although I guess I can’t complain. :)

17 SkinnyRunner June 5, 2011 at 7:50 am

awh, im so jealous of the celeb sitings, both of them!

18 Liz June 8, 2011 at 6:03 am

LOL Makeup for dogs. Whoddah thunkit? I missed ‘Beginners’ at Sundance because I was working the ‘fest. Can’t wait to see it in theaters!

PB&J froyo sounds DECADENT. I’ve been on this weird fro-yo kick lately- they carry mochi chunks at froZENyo- SO GOOD. Every other day I stop by, drop a few bucks and come out with *this* much yo and *THIS* much mochi.

19 Lynn at The Actors Diet June 8, 2011 at 9:49 am

ahhh, mochi and fro yo – would never have thought to combine the two if the frozen yogurt places didn’t make it an option – now i can’t imagine life without it!!!
