“So I’m bored I’m sure everybody is bored.” Ellen states, “I remembered I have a 4,000 piece puzzle…so this is going to keep me busy for at least an hour…it shouldn’t be that hard right?”

Not at all Ellen we appreciate your dedication!

“When I say I’m going to do something, I do it.  You know that about me.  It’s Ellen DO IT DeGeneres.”

We couldn’t agree more! However, Ellen did run into a problem when she started flipping over the puzzle pieces and putting them together.

“What I realized is this 4,000 peices is ridiculous. I don’t have a table big enough..who does?” Ellen states, “I’m not going to do it becasue I’m not stupid its Ellen NOT STUPID DeGeneres is what my name is.”

No need to explain, Ellen.  We just admire you wanting to put a 4,000 piece puzzle together in the first place! Ah well.  Onto the next thing.

Other A-list celebrities Ellen spoke with were Courtney Cox, Adam Levine (calling him on his birthday), Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, James Corden, and more. Be sure to check out Ellen’s Instagram to watch all the videos of her speaking with them.

When Ellen isn’t chatting with her friends she is performing magic tricks. Ellen is known as “do it” DeGeneres, so before she attempts to try it on her own she has to learn from the best, which is David Blaine.

Ellen shared a video of David demonstrating how to change your card to 4 of hearts by “shaking” or “snapping” the card. Easy…right?

On Ellen’s next post she decided to give it a try and things didn’t turn out the way she expected.
