Grimm Fairytale Ball

{ Wednesday, October 27, 2010 }

Ooooh, I just love Halloween ~ its my favorite time of year! Living in Los Angeles has spoiled me because there are so many fun themed events all year round. One of the Halloween parties I'll be attending this year is the Grimm Fairytale Ball ~ I can't decide whether I'll dress up as Christine Daae (Phantom Of The Opera), Snow White, or Belle (Beauty And The Beast). Regardless of which costume I choose, I can't wait!

Stupid For Dexter

{ Thursday, October 14, 2010 }
I have a confession ~ I love Showtime's Dexter. I've been a fan since episode one and watch it religiously. The study of abnormal psychology has been a lifelong passion ~ I got a BA in psychology and wrote my senior thesis on sociopathy.

My friend Mandy Schneider is a charming & fabulously talented actress who is a fellow Dexter fanatic. Most of our conversations eventually turn into Dexter fangirling sessions, complete with schoolgirl squeals & crazy character conspiracies. Mandy & I decided to finally channel our rabid fandom into something constructive and Stupid For Dexter was born!

Stupid For Dexter is the 4th show on the Streamin' Garage network. Its a weekly show hosted by Mandy & yours truly that includes in-depth episode analysis, interviews with criminology professionals, trivia with TV expert Paul Goebel, plot predictions, & much more. Our set is a Dexter inspired "kill room." You can catch the show & participate in the chat room live every Monday at 8 PM (PST) on Here is a teaser trailer Mandy & I made for the show:
