I would LOVE to be able to share with everyone all of the things I've thought and judged with my friends as often as we do them- which, as you can guess, would be enough to keep even the MOST unfocused person occupied for quite some time.

"______ breezed into the Chateau Marmontunnoticed, despite having just braved the paparazzi last night at the premiere for her latest film, __________.
