This post would have made a lot more sense two weekends ago, but sometimes blog life just doesn’t cooperate. Other posts that just couldn’t wait wrestled their way out of my brain first. But since the post-it note with tidbits for tonight’s intended post is still sitting on my desk at work, and my memory is like a sieve anymore, it’s time to go the well.
Our daily paper runs celebrity birthdays every day, right above the crossword puzzle, so I always see them. I couldn’t help but notice that from 11/19 to 11/22, there was a string of birthdays belonging to a half dozen hot ladies from my age group, more or less. It made me wonder what the hell was going on in February in the late 50s to early 60s, that’s for sure.
Here are the birthday girls:
Jody Foster, 48
I always thought she was smokin’ hot since she was a teenager, even if I still think of her as “Clarice” half the time.
Meg Ryan, 49
Meg defined “cute” for an entire generation.
Allison Janney, 51
I know, not your typical glamour girl, but I always loved CJ Craig (her character on The West Wing). Plus, she’s like 8 feet tall and I like that.
Bo Derek, 54
Good God, when the movie “10” came out, it stood my buddies and I on our ears. I hated the braids, though.
Mariel Hemingway, 49
She was hot in every B-movie she ever did, which was all of them.
Jamie Lee Curtis, 52
I don’t care if she only surfaces in Activia commercials and in the crowd at Dancing With the Stars. I’ve been in love with JLC since her first movie, “Halloween.” Then between “Trading Places,” “Perfect,” “True Lies,” and every other movie she’s ever done, nothing but hotness. Sadly, all I can do is wait for Christopher Guest to die, so I can move in.
So is it me, or is it just weird that all these hot stars had birthdays over the same weekend?
