Just another day in the life of a paparazzi…

Sorrrry I am so bad at keeping up with my blog. I think about what I’m going to post on here on a daily basis, but somehow the day slips away and I neglect to get a post completed. Well the time has come and I am actually sitting down and getting this accomplished.

Can I just say that time has FLOWN by. I feel like I just moved here like yesterday and now in two short weeks I will be flying home for Thanksgiving Break. I am so excited for this quick trip home. Not only will I get to see my friends and family, but I will get to experience a football game, PLUS it’s the best one of the season!! WOO HOOO I have missed tailgating and rolling and eating and  and cheering and everything else that is associated with Auburn Football. I have been trying to keep up with the games here in NYC, but let me tell you something: NO ONE IN THE NORTH GIVES A CRAP ABOUT COLLEGE FOOTBALL. Period. The end. Its all pro- this and pro-that ….who cares about Pro football…people here that’s who! I am very much looking forward to gearing up in orange and blue and cheering on the tigers.

So my life as lately has been pretty entertaining. I have had quite a few celebrity run ins…And in case you haven’t met me before you should know that I LOVE THE CELEBS!! So that has been awesome! I’ve only gotten some pictures of a few, mainly because I don’t want to hurt my chance of developing long-lasting relationships by acting like a star-struck fan, although I am ALWAYS the star-struck fan.

Today, in fact, I randomly wandered onto the set of Gossip Girl. There were shooting the scene for *SPOILER ALERT* Blair’s wedding to the Prince. They were filming on the Upper East Side right near my school and I passed by on the way home today and BAM…There was Serena and Dan a.k.a Blake Lively and Penn Badgley. So since everyone else was snapping photos I decided to, too. Here are the pics I got:

Hmmm, I also spotted some bachelor/bachelorette contestants at Central Park where they were putting on a charity event for Alex’s Lemonade Stand. The event was put on by Graham Bunn, a recent finalist from The Bachelor Pad 2. His charity website is http://www.46NYC.com–You should check it out, he supports some cool causes!

I also creepily know where Jennifer Anniston lives and spotted her once entering her building, AND YES she is as pretty and fabulous in person. I’ve seen her boyfriend near there a few times as well. And to make myself feel better, I want you all to know that I applied for a job near there and my friend’s sister lives near there so I have been in the area several times and I don’t just stalk her, although I wish I had the time and patience to do so 🙂 I discovered through the be-friending of a few paparazzo that she lived in this gorgeous building in the West Village.

Here’s a (very bad) pic of her hunky bf, Justin Theroux, riding off on his motorcycle:

yeah I told you it was a bad one, probably not going to be able to sell this one to the tabloids anytime soon.

Monday night, my friend and I went to a book reading at our favorite little Bookstore/Coffee Shop,but arrived too late and was unable to hear the author speak. BUT the upside was that we saw Alec Baldwin leaving the book reading, and also Sandra Bernhard, who I recognized but honestly have no idea why she is famous. I’ve also randomly seen Gilbert Gottfried (SCORE!) and Carey Mulligan just roaming the streets. I guess celebrities are just real people after all, haha yeah right!

So thats the latest in Mandy’s life as a celeb magnet. I’ll keep you all posted on any other sightings in the future.
