1. Facebook just acquired messaging app WhatsApp for $19 billion. What’s the first thing you would do with $19 billion? I would travel the globe according to BuzzFeed’s list of “Surreal Places to Visit Before You Die,” but skip a ride on the swing in Ecuador.

2. My favorite celebrity cameo on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show premiere was Sarah Jessica Parker, but it would have been even better if Enrigque Iglesias showed up too.

3. James Franco penned an op-ed in the New York Times about Shia LaBeouf’s latest antics. Describe the Transformers star in three words. Troubled, clever, sincere.

4. Would you eat a piece of this cakeI’d have to pass on this one!

5. The best or worst thing about the Sochi Olympics: With Olympic snowboard terms like the “YOLO Flip” the Men’s halfpipe was the most fun to watch. The jumps and tricks were insane.

1. Facebook just acquired messaging app WhatsApp for $19 billion. What’s the first thing you would do with $19 billion? Buy SnapChat.

2. My favorite celebrity cameo on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show premiere was Giuliani, but it would have been even better if Letterman showed up too.

3. James Franco penned an op-ed in the New York Times about Shia LaBeouf’s latest antics. Describe the Transformers star in three words. One word: Oxymoron.

4. Would you eat a piece of this cakeNote to self: While underground, avoid panhandlers, mariachis, harmonizers, pole dancers and CAKE.

5. The best or worst thing about the Sochi Olympics: The new American Freestyle boy band.

1. Facebook just acquired messaging app WhatsApp for $19 billion. What’s the first thing you would do with $19 billion? The first thing I’d do would likely be something impulsive and reckless—new houses for everyone, Oprah-style!

2. My favorite celebrity cameo on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show premiere was Mariah Carey, but it would have been even better if RuPaul showed up too.

3. James Franco penned an op-ed in the New York Times about Shia LaBeouf’s latest antics. Describe the Transformers star in three words. Never ever dull.

4. Would you eat a piece of this cakeProbably not, but who can say for sure.

5. The best or worst thing about the Sochi Olympics: My favorite thing about the Sochi Olympics is that it has sparked a worldwide discussion about Russia’s awful approach to human rights. Also I love watching the skiing.

1. Facebook just acquired messaging app WhatsApp for $19 billion. What’s the first thing you would do with $19 billion? I’d probably buy a house or a car (or both!), but realistically I’d probably have a nervous breakdown.

2. My favorite celebrity cameo on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show premiere was Stephen Colbert, but it would have been even better if Justin Timberlake showed up too.

3. James Franco penned an op-ed in the New York Times about Shia LaBeouf’s latest antics. Describe the Transformers star in three words. CR-A-ZY.

4. Would you eat a piece of this cakeProbably not—the words subway and food shouldn’t go together.

5. The best or worst thing about the Sochi Olympics: I still can’t get over this.

1. Facebook just acquired messaging app WhatsApp for $19 billion. What’s the first thing you would do with $19 billion? Travel all over the world and make my friends quit their jobs to come with me.

2. My favorite celebrity cameo on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show premiere was Mariah Carey, but it would have been even better if an Olsen showed up too.

3. James Franco penned an op-ed in the New York Times about Shia LaBeouf’s latest antics. Describe the Transformers star in three words. Mortifying old crush.

4. Would you eat a piece of this cake? I usually ignore things like that.

5. The best or worst thing about the Sochi Olympics: I didn’t watch the Olympics, but I thought this SNL Weekend Update guest was pretty great. (Seriously though, anyone who can do this stuff is just amazing.)
