Wow, Big Day Today

lol, Rocky’s mousy insecure girlfriend was born in ‘Lake Success.” Lisa, another Buddy Holiday. Except for the plane crash, small town Iowa, car crash, and Honduras. The black / white thing and the optical impairments.

Otherwise so close it’s eerie.

Died.

Happy Birthday Amanda Bynes

This blog is about hope and optimism, so we won’t mention Amanda’s extensive legal issues, or even the bong she threw from a 36th floor window while the cops watched.

We’ll just hearken back to the good ol’ days, when life was simple and care-free. Best of luck in your recovery Amanda, it sounds like things are looking up. All in all, I think you’re good people.

Happy Birthday Barbie!

I wonder if inventor Ruth Handler had any idea of the phenomenon she created on March 9, 1959, when her newly designed teenage doll was introduced at the American International Toy Fair in New York. I doubt it. – Tamra Bolton in Parade
Go visit, they’ve got a great slideshow – Barbie has been there, done that.
