What Time is it?

I don’t talk about it a lot, but truth be told my tri team is filled with lots of Hollywood insiders. So sometimes I get to share in some pretty exclusive perks. This weekend I was treated to a red-carpet gala premiere. There were TV cameras, celebrities, and a top-notch dinner reception preceding the biggest entertainment event in L.A. That’s right my friends, on Friday I went to Staples Center to see... High School Musical: The Ice Tour.

You may recall the High School Musical event we had at the Lake Arrowhead Triathlon. Well the 5 of us had a reunion of sorts with our special VIP passes to the ice show’s premiere. It was awesome. For starters, since this was a kid-friendly event, for dinner at the reception we had Macaroni & Cheese. Hot dogs. PB&J. Kool-Aid. And all the cookies you could eat. (I think they had a salad bar and some prime rib or something for the grown-ups but who cares, right?)

During the show itself, we were probably the loudest people over 4-feet tall in the entire arena. As part of my job I had to sit through many marketing and publicity meetings for HSM2 so yes, I do know all the words to “You Are the Music in Me.”

We had our photo taken with Troy & Gabriella cut-outs. No, we are not freakishly large people. The cut-outs were scaled down to be more kid-friendly.



High School Musical 3 will be coming to theaters in another year or so. I’m sure we’ll be getting together for that event as well.

Is it just me or does my hand look freakishly large on Annie's shoulder?

The freakish part is that's actually Ben's hand.

How come no one is talking about the freakishness of High School Musical on Ice?

This is a blackmailable photo and yet you people are smiling.

Please tell me that there were attack dogs and men in hoods directing this shoot and demanding ransom money.
