Might have to "quit" Heath

So, Heath Ledger died. Which is REALLY sad. I LOVED him in 10 Things I hate About You (which is actually a really good movie, with a really good soundtrack).

But, I digress. So, anytime something happens in Hollywood, J. Flo, my favorite work cohort, and I start doing internet investigation work. We always end up REALLY far from where we started. We were trying to find out exactly what happened to Heath. And, somehow we ended up trying to find out which celebrities were born on our birthdays.

My list is PATHETIC!!! I am thinking of lying about my birthday from now on.
Charles Manson! Neil Young! Tanya Harding! - I'll take someone aggressive for $1000 Alex! Come on!!!

I also have Nadia Comaneci - now that's better, she got a perfect 10! Nice. Way better than the one who caned the horse-face girl in ice skating, right? Plus, we saw her in the flesh at Sea World when I was like 7 or something. Jennica still has her autograph.

I also got Megan Mullally and David Schwimmer - who are HILARIOUS!

Anne Hathaway and Ryan Gosling - they're both pretty cool I guess.

And, then I get Grace Kelly! Yea! Finally a real legend.

And, a little less famous, but far more impressive, my older twin-sister-6-years-removed - Kimberly Brinkerhoff Jones!

Guess it's not all bad.

Try it

But, for real, anyone figure out how Heath Ledger died yet?

What are you talking about? I don't have anyone's autograph! ...not even Liza Minelli's, who we saw in NY when I was 12, when we approached her in Tiffany's and asked for her autograph and started a huge line of people behind us wanting the same. They probably knew of her from her singing days and legendary daughter of Judy Garland. We, on the other hand, thought we had met a big celeb, having known of her from good old "Fairy Tale Theater." (Did anyone else besides our family watch Fairy Tale Theater?)

One of these days I am going to accurately recall and retell a childhood memory... but CLEARLY not today.

can I just say that I totally knew every single line in 10 things I hate about you!! And I have to agree on the soundtrack-AWESOME!!! So sad though... I guess it was accidental.
