＜英語原文＞ Well, can you believe that we are finally entering the last month of 2011????? I can't believe how fast time goes by! Here in the U.S. we just had the Thanksgiving holiday weekend...which is, for those of you that don't know, FULL of lots of great food on Thanksgiving Day (11/24), and great shopping deals on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, 11/25)This year I got to spend the holiday with one of my close friends from high school in Tokyo, who lives here in Los Angeles. We made a big turkey and lots of other Thanksgiving favorites like garlic mashed potatoes, rolls, and sweet potato casserole.
This year some of the celebrities spent the Thanksgiving holiday serving Thanksgiving dinners to the homeless here in LA, such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Zoe Saldana, and Hollywood movie legend Kirk Douglas and his wife. The mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa was there to help feed everyone as well. According to the organizers at Los Angeles Mission, there were about 3,000 pounds of turkey, 700 pounds of mashed potatoes, 80 gallons of gravy, and 600 pies that were given out. That's a lot of food! It's always important to remember that the holidays is a great time to remember all the things that we have to be grateful for. Don't you think so?
Now speaking of grateful...Paris Hilton did a bit of shopping on Black Friday (11/25). She bought herself a new red 2012 California Spyder Ferrari!!!! The car which cost almost $300,000 was delivered to her house on Friday afternoon. That night she decided to ride around Beverly HIlls with her sister Nicky HIlton to try out her new car. And later she tweeted "I drove my new car for the first time. Such a beautiful car and so much fun to drive! I love it!" Now this new sports car joins her car collection which includes two Bentleys, a Range Rover, a hybrid Escalade, and a Lexus. WOW! Must be nice!
Finally NEW COUPLE ALERT! Recently there were many fans of actor Ryan Gosling who were upset that he wasn't chosen as "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine. (he lost out to "Hangover" star Bradley Cooper). Well, the actor doesn't seem to be taking the loss so bad. He has been too busy getting close with actress Eva Mendes!! It seems that the two actors have been secretly dating since September, and just last week Ryan Gosling made a trip to Paris to hang out with his new girlfriend. Eva Mendes is right now there filming her latest film "Holly Motors". And the cameras found the beautiful couple taking a stroll and being affectionate during a stroll through Paris' Pere Lachaise Cemetery. Hmmm, could this become the new "it" couple in Hollywood, now that so many of the couples have been breaking up? What do you think?
