Heading Back East

Sep 12th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

The Grim Cheaper and I are currently back east for the next week and a half, which, unfortunately, means I will not have any new posts until (most likely) September 23rd.  Our trip is not under the best of circumstances (we are attending a funeral), but we have planned a couple of side trips and stalking stops while on the East Coast, so there will hopefully be some light times, as well.  (One of the places we’re planning to see is pictured above.  Can anyone […]



Happy Labor Day!

Sep 5th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

I would like to wish a very happy Labor Day to all of my fellow stalkers.  I am taking today off, but will be back on Wednesday with a whole new post.  Sorry to have been a bit MIA lately, but the Grim Cheaper and I have been traveling a lot and I have also been working on a huge Halloween-themed post for Discover L.A. that I am super excited about.  The GC and I have two more upcoming trips planned for the near future, […]



The Actors Studio – Marilyn Monroe’s Former Acting School

Aug 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

There is pretty much nothing I love more than re-creating famous movie/television scenes and iconic photographs – as most of you well know!  Though I had long been obsessed with the notable series of images of Marilyn Monroe taken in front of The Actors Studio in New York in the ‘50s, due to the fact that the legendary school moved no less than five times during its early days, I could never figure out exactly where the shoot had occurred.  I poked around the facility’s […]

The Real Life “The Simpsons” House

Jun 29th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

Did you know that there is a real The Simpsons house?  Neither did I.  For my birthday earlier this month, I told the Grim Cheaper that all I wanted to do was spend a couple of days at the Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa (which I blogged about here) in Henderson, Nevada.  He granted my request and the two of us had a fabulous stay.  While there, my friend, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, texted me to let […]



Beating the Heat

Jun 28th, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

Sorry to have been a bit MIA lately.  I have been travelling back and forth to L.A. over the past two weeks along with the Grim Cheaper and my parents in order to try to beat the heat in Palm Springs (temps got up to 122 degrees last Monday!).  I did do some stalking while I was in town – including visiting Southwestern Bag Company, aka the police station from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (photo above) – but there was not a lot of time […]
