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.

    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!

    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.

    • http://theactorsdiet.wordpress.com Lynn at The Actors Diet

      oops! sorry! (and you’re welcome)

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

    I love pup celebs. Too cute!

  • http://edenseats.wordpress.com Eden

    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. :)

  • SkinnyRunner

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

  • http://goodstuff.wordpress.com/ Liz

    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.

    • http://theactorsdiet.wordpress.com Lynn at The Actors Diet

      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!!!
