This Tuesday evening, Toby and I were at home minding our own business, when Alex went to a work party and met Robert De Niro! The actor is generally considered gruff and unapproachable, but Alex said he was friendlier than he had expected. “He was also shorter than me, which was good news,” Alex told me. Haha. Hope you have a good weekend, and here are a few fun posts from around the web…
