Hey everyone! So much has happened since the Red Cross Fire + Ice Gala! From March 29th-31st I was in New Orleans (!!!!) with the Tate Family! The city was so beautiful and the food was OFF DA HOOK. Seriously so good. Crawfish = my new favorite food. The beignets…the coffee…I can’t even begin to describe how GOOD. We were only staying in their time share for a weekend, but we managed to do SO much. We went to a Burlesque show, took a buggy ride and toured around with quite the interesting chauffeur….and like I said, the restaurants are what really blew me away. Any weekend away with Mr. and Mrs. Tate, Mike and Nicola, and Dylan is always a good time.

|Saturday Morning before getting on the trolley!|
|Mike and Nicola (newlyweds!!) on the trolley. There was an ongoing debate of whether or not Mike resembles Don Draper..more on that soon.|
|Nicola deserves a lot of credit for catching this incredible moment. Brotherly love<3|
|Kissing in the French Quarter!|
|This dessert…banana’s foster something…just heaven. Ate every bite. Sort of shared..|
This past Saturday, a group of students in the Red Cross Club at NYU went to clean up Central Park, which by the way is so weirdly clean…so we didn’t have much trash to pick up, but I did get to use one of those awesome trash picking thingys. So that was a new experience. Later that night was the WYSE (Women and Youth Supporting Each Other) Date Auction!! Somehow at the last minute I was chosen to handle the music, and I basically only played Marvin Gaye & Michael Jackson. Oh and My Goodies by Ciara. Trying to make some money for a very deserving organization!! We raised over $600, so I’d say it was relatively successful.

We’re gonna just jump right in, since we have lots to make up for.
This just made me laugh. Ha-ha-ha, laugh and move on. This man is an alien. Bye.
3. Can we quickly re-cap who the best villains in cinema history are? Or at least the past like 5 years when I actually realized I liked movies? Here are my top three…
Javier Bardem in No Country For Old Men
That haircut…those eyes…that weird silent gun…he could not be scarier…probably the number one person in the world that I wouldn’t want chasing me. I would probably stop running. I’d rather die than run away from this villain.
Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that Inglourious Basterds is my favorite movie…but Christoph Waltz had a lot to do with it. His acting the meticulous, always one step ahead, paranoid and demented Nazi was pretty impeccable. So good in fact that I think we all were pumped when Brad pulled out the knife at the end to give him a little reminder of himself. Props Christoph. Cool name.
Heath Ledger in Dark Knight Rises
I think Mr. Ledger got so into his character, it really started to effect him in his personal life. And we all know how his story ended. He gets a standing ovation from me for this role. Brilliant.
Now that I’ve re-terrifed you, and if I haven’t, please go watch one of these (they are all AMAZINGGGGG films) I will attempt to stick with a more flowing theme.
4. NOT! LOL. I want these bed covers. Aren’t they just so darling? And sorry I don’t know where they are from…just found them on my girl’s blog. Jess. I don’t know why I called you “my girl”, so sorry. Here’s her blog.
10. So I know the Girls finale happened a long time ago…but I really like this interview and reflection on it. SO READ THIS!
