She passed away in 2005, but today would have been the civil rights legend's 98th birthday. Raise several overflowing glasses to her, please.
Yeah, that's right — it's BooBoo's night. So pour yourself a glass of the strong stuff, make a toast and drink away the pain (get it??). Right. Have a good weekend and please, God, stay warm.
The Academy Award-winning turns 70 years young today; to celebrate, why not don a beret and turn to a life of crime? Or maybe just watch Network.
Holy crap, another year is OVER. Time to reflect, say goodbye, maybe cry a little (tears of sadness or tears of joy—your choice!), plan, and look ahead to 200-eleventy. What are your hopes for the new year?
...Because today's her 35th birthday. No matter what you think of her films (The Fifth Element scared the crap out of me), "The Gentleman Who Fell" is really just a Great Song. And may your weekend be just as lovely!
She who bangs on drums turns 36 today; take a wooden spoon to your pots in pans tonight in her honor. And damn, when are we going to get a White Stripes reunion?
The inescapable holiday crooner is 83 years young today. Give him a shout-out as you light your menorah or trim your tree this weekend. It is, after all, the most wonderful time of the year. Have a good one!
Dear readers, thank you for spending another Sunday with my cranky ass. Let's revisit all that we've learned this weekend, shall we?
We're off to the airport for some groping (purely recreational), but please do enjoy this special time for family, food, and fights—fights in traffic, fights at the table, fights at the mall. All stuff for which we're thankful!
Happy 33rd birthday to the gymnast, who at the 1996 Olympics executed near-perfect vault while seriously injured—and with that, she secured the gold medal for the U.S. May your weekend be just as epic! (Minus the pain, obviously.)
It's the Godmother's birthday! She was born on this day in 1815, so raise a glass to her—there's an Anheuser-Busch brewery near Seneca Falls, so even Michelob Ultra is acceptable tonight. Have a good weekend!
Sure, there are birthdays today (Tilda Swinton!), but I'm afraid they'll have to take a backseat to something far more important on a Friday: a video of curled-up cats morphing into croissants. Enjoy, and enjoy your weekend as well.
It's Sabrina Duncan's 62nd birthday; if you're going as an angel for Halloween, do her a solid and go as the "Smart Angel." Have a great weekend, eat absurd amounts of candy, and we'll see you on the other side.
She turns 91 today, though she probably couldn't care less (as was her famous response to winning the Nobel). As for you: have a lovely weekend, and be sure to swing by tomorrow for a very special Saturday surprise!
Okay, sure, she's not had the most fantastic run of it lately, but it is her birthday. So for one day, let's try to say something nice. Isn't her hair fantastic? Or something? May your weekend be just as shiny!
And lots of other good birthdays today: Sigourney Weaver, Matt Damon, Daniel Faraday (er, Jeremy Davies). And on that note, have a good weekend (and maybe spend it reading The Babysitter or Goosebumps)!
Today is our fair lady's 75th birthday; put a spoonful of sugar in whatever beverage you toast her with. And have a good weekend!
F. Scott Fitzgerald was born on this day in 1896. But did you guys know that Paul Rudd was in a made-for-tv adaptation of Gatsby in 2000? I did not. But I'm a happier woman now that I do.
Today is the late Anne Bancroft's birthday; she would have been 79 and no doubt still breaking hearts. Also: Is it just me, or is the first five-day workweek after a four-day holiday week totally the worst? TGIF, indeed.
As suspected, Fashion Week is merely a giant party for Karl Lagerfeld: today's his 77th birthday! If you don't have enough cash to buy him a new leather glove, then at least show the man some respect and just listen...
