Happy Birthday, Gizmo Guy!
Yup, Gizmo Guy’s birthday is a Friday the Thirteenth this year. His “bad luck” started yesterday. You see I told him I’d take him out for lunch this afternoon, but his job got busy and he got called out of town so no restaurant lunch for GG this aft. Hopefully I’ll be able to take him out to dinner tonight.
He’s shares a birthday (year, not day) with:
(all right, so Mel’s gone squirrelly these days, has dumped his wife and the mother of his seven kids –definitely unheroic there, Mel. PLUS this is an older picture of him, but Gizmo Guy used to have hair like that which I adored, and I confess I liked Mel in his younger days.)
Ah, Tim, one of those very quiet understated actors who doesn’t get the attention he deserves. Loved him as Jim Lovell in From The Earth To the Moon, laughed with him in Wings. In fact, a scene he was in on FtEttM inspired me for a theme between Chad and his heroine in my work-in-progress.
What’s there to say about a guy who is secure enough in his masculinity that he’s willing to don a dress for two seasons of Bosom Buddies. And he’s been in a long term relationship with Rita Wilson.
Other famous people who are also celebrating their birthday today, though not the same year — Gerard Butler (Happy Birthday Gerry! Yum!), Jimmy Kimmel, Chris Noth, John Larroquette and Garry Marshall.
Come on, you thought I could resist showing a picture of Gerry in leather pants? Yum!
Oh, yeah, I’ve also got a post up at the Samhain blog today – where I’ve gone totally barking mad. Drop on by and offer your opinion. Or slap some sense into me, will you?
