le 4eme jour du festival
Today is the fourth day of the film festival. Since my grand entrance on the red carpet, I have to say that the excitement has dwindled a bit. Last night, my friends and I waited in line for two hours for the film “Precious,” and were met with the disappointing news that it was “COMPLET” (full) when we were merely 15 places away from getting in. It was such a let down, because some other students who arrived there just moments before us, did get in – and we later found out that both Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz were there. And Nick Cannon, but that’s not quite as exciting for me, personally. Anyway… it was upsetting. But it’s hard to complain, since we’ve already had the privilege of attending a red carpet premiere. That’s enough coolness to last me for two days.
So, today, my friend Alli and I volunteered for amfAR again (an organization raising money for AIDS research… we will be volunteering at the prestigious soiree on next Thursday as well which will have guests including Bill Clinton, Annie Lenox, Sharon Stone… and the list will go on). Anyway, Alli and I have lucked out. Since we volunteered both Thursday and today, we have made a good relationship with our bosses and they seem to really like us. So they are giving us more responsibility! On Thursday, we will be working all morning helping out as receptionists as they are at the Hotel de Cap preparing for the soiree. Then, in the evening, they told us they would try to give us one of the better and more exciting volunteering positions since we’ve been working so hard! We are both so excited, and are hoping to be able to help out on Monday or Tuesday of next week as well.
After our day for amfAR, we headed over with our invitations to the film, Jaffa, but were once again just a bit too late. A let down, yet, but we have invitations for a film this evening, so we will be sure to arrive WELL in advance and hopefully we can finally get into this one! We shall see!
