    This is so funny! I was in New Orleans last weekend and we got to see Will Ferrell up close, filming in the quarter. I guess I know why now. But seriously, New Orleans is the best city.

    So…I guess i was right the blind item was about Paula Patton and the pothead.

    This is nitpicky, I realize, but he was actually Bacchus. The king of Mardi Gras, Rex, is riding down St. Charles Avenue right now!

        We got up at 6:15 to head over to Zulu and to catch the Mardi Gras Indians preparing for battle. Living here is both incredible and exhausting. Fun, completely true story from Mardi Gras this year?

        The most incredible sight of Mardi Gras just took place on my porch (we live 3 blocks off St. Charles) – while waiting for Dave to come home from Orpheus, I was standing on the porch with Livvy doing a little peoplewatching (ifyouknowwhatImean) when two drunk coeds approached me. Girl 1, with arms behind her back: “Do you have a chainsaw?” Me: “Um, no.” Her: “I just got arrested and ran away from the cops.” Girl 2: “Well, I guess you’re not arrested yet, since you have his handcuffs.”

        Yup, she was handcuffed and took off.

      Nor is Mardi Gras starting today, as the linked article suggests. Today is the last day of Mardi Gras before Ash Wednesday and lent begin tomorrow. Mardi Gras has been going on for weeks!!!

      I love you New Orleans.

      This is precisely what I was gonna say. Not to be bitchy, but he’s Bacchus, which means he is the king of one of the super krewe’s parades, but the king of mardi gras, Rex, rode today. Will Ferrell killed it, though. Plenty of throws and super friendly – just how we like ‘em. :)

    I actually quite like Emanuelle Chrigui’s jeans.

    Or maybe I’m just comparing them to the ones that Miley wore, where anything would be better in comparison.

    *shrugs*

    Either way, they’re not that bad.

    Michael Fassbender had an interesting appearance on Sunday’s Top Gear where he was the “star in a reasonably priced car”. Drove a very good time, too.

    I was expecting to find a link to Lainey’s newest blind riddle…and see if anyone had a clue about who could possibly be the “lower tier actress”. “The Director” is pretty obvious, in my opinion*.

    *Michael Bay.

    Uhm…surprised about my country (Italy) not being in the top ten. I have always thought we are on the chill side about everything.

  8. NinaG says:

    Don’t hear to much about Will Ferrell. I think he just like to live his life as a normal person instead of try and create publicity. He’s pretty funny too!

    • Holly Hobby says:

      If you ever watched his interviews with Barbara Walters, he sounds like a normal person. Sort of like someone you would sit next to on the bus. He wasn’t “on” like on his roles.

      He strikes me as a pretty nice guy. Someone who sits on car pool duty.

    I wish I was in NO. I wanted to go so badly when I was in college but never got the chance cause I was broke. Now that I have a job I have no time. Not fair!!

    I agree with Steve’s comment that Micheal was snubbed because of the explicitness of the movie. I went to see it when it came out and I even blushed but it was an excellent portrait of addiction. I have to wonder why it is ok for sex and mental illness (and all its incarnations) to be swept under the rug but alcoholism, drugs and violence can be openly discussed or at least shown without even a flinch from the academy. Or is it just male nudity that makes most of the old white males uncomfortable?

    Will is benevolent and just, as a king, or an “Elf”

  11. PyrLover says:

    I cannot stand anything that Will Ferrell does. All he does in his films is rum around in his underwear. Untalented slob.

    Why is that puppy suspicious of broccoli? Because it smells skunky, maybe?
