This might be the most important story we’ve ever reported: blogger, actress, and lovable nutbag Bai Ling is in our City as we type. This is SO EXCITING.

Here she is at her hotel, here she is doing some sort of broadcasting/recording — she even taunts us, asking “By the way can you tell which hotel I stay from the last photo?”

Great question. Readers, can you?
