First Natalie Portman and now Julia Louis-Dreyfus – it’s been a very good week…
A reader reported yesterday just after 5pm:
“Asked a lady and said they were lining up to be extras on the HBO show “Veep”. I dunno…kinda cool.”
Definitely cool!! And Julia Louis-Dreyfus instagrams her old stomping grounds in Spring Valley.
Saw this going around twitter last night from Sip With Socialites. Not the President or First Lady but still pretty cool…
Ed. Note: I have a very similar hat. I’ve had that hat for over 10 years now. I don’t want people making fun of me when they see me wearing that hat. I had it first damn it.
Speaking of hats, did I mention I was raising money for the for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation in their fight to end Childhood Cancers? I’ll be shaving my head March 13th with Team Boundary Stone and you guys have been incredibly generous. For those who still wish to do so (and get a PoPville shirt for your kindness too) please consider donating here. Thanks for considering and thanks again to all who’ve already done so!!
