All these people had birthdays today!

Too bad today isn't my birthday...
Then I'd be funny and retired and worth $800 million and never have to work a day in my life like Jerry Seinfeld, 59 today...

Or I'd never look my age like fellow OC girl, beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer, 55 today...

Or I'd be super tall and have a funny name like Uma Thurman, 43 today...

Or I'd be uber-rich, and have a movie based on me called "Citizen Love" and I'd build a castle in San Simeon named "Love Castle" like William Randolph Hearst, who would be 150 today....

Or I'd decorate my fireplace mantel with all my awards (Oscars, Golden Globes, BAFTA Masks, SAG Actors, MTV Movie Awards Golden Popcorns, etc.) like Daniel Day Lewis, 55 today...

Or I'd be an ultra-talented jazz musician like Duke Ellington, who would be 114 today...

Or I'd be a super-fast NASCAR race car driver like Dale Earnhardt, who would've been 62 today (he left us too soon)....

Or I'd wear a silly black wig and scream in an annoying voice "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" like Eve Plumb (aka Jan Brady), 55 today...

Or I'd wear a cool headband and mullet wig until Brooke Shields suggests that I shave my head bald and I'd be the greatest tennis player of all time and retire at 36 like Andre Agassi, 43 today...

Or I'd have a cool surfer dad (wait! I *do* have a cool surfer dad) and have trouble with my weight going up and down (wait! I *do* have that problem) and change my hair from blonde to brunette and back again! (wow! Who knew Carnie and I would be so much alike?!) like Carnie Wilson, 45 today.

But today is *not* my birthday. Oh well...luckily I thought of all you celebs today and could wish YOU a Happy Birthday!

Happy 80th Birthday Carol Burnett!

Dear Carol Burnett,
Today I tugged my earlobe for you on your 80th birthday. I grew up watching your show! You always made me laugh...and I never really stopped.

Happy 449th Birthday Wm Shakespeare!

Dear Bill,
I wonder if the audience of your first play left shaking their heads saying: "I didn't understand a word of that, did you?" ....just like I did after my first Works of Shakespeare class in college.

"To be or not to be." ...the only thing I remember from that class!

Happy Birthday William "Bard of Avon" Shakespeare! Today you would be 449. [sometimes I feel that old!]
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 63rd Birthday Peter Frampton!

Dear Peter Frampton,
Happy 63rd Birthday! 63rd? Where did the time go?

Whenever I hear your hit "Do You Feel Like We Do?" I get a big smile on my face and I think of my college days. The year was 1979 and it was my first semester away from home living in a dorm. I was a loyal and devoted fan and completely hooked when I bought the album “Frampton Comes Alive.” I listened to it over and over again and even screamed along with your fans...the ones who screamed in the background of that album. My roommate and I had your poster up on our dorm room and we'd kiss it every night...remember we were 18! Let's just say, by the end of the semester there was a ton of lipgloss covering your face. Lol!

Of course, your poster was part of the "wallpaper" in that dorm room...along with posters of Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Kiss, and The Who.

Yes, Peter, I even raised my kids listening to your music. Next I'll be introducing my grandkids to it!
Your hair is now "chrome" and your curly golden locks are gone, but I'm still your loyal and devoted fan.
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 49th Birthday Andy Serkis

Happy 35th Birthday James Franco!

Dear James Franco,
You're 35 today! Hope you had a Happy Birthday!

When you were filming the Broadway scene in "SpiderMan 3" (you remember the one...when MJ is singing and you watch from the balcony), director Sam Raimi told you to look at someone for your focal point. Now, who was that? Was is Kirsten Dunst? Nope. Was it Tobey Macguire? Nope. What? You don't remember? It was a girl named Stacy. Yep, that's right. My daughter. And when you two looked at each other (she was sitting behind Tobey) it was true love. Ok, only for a second. At least that's what I tell everyone. However, you did make eye contact!

Thanks James, for giving me a good story to tell for years and years. And I must say, you're a very good actor, who can memorize lines and can deliver in just one take. Or so my sources tell me. :)

And lastly, I must tell you I loved you in "Freaks and Geeks!" You would've been MY boyfriend, if you were really from the 70's!

Have a wonderful birthday!
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 50th Conan OBrien!

Happy 50th Birthday Conan O'Brien!
Love your hair!
Had a great time at your show a couple years ago. But if I go again, can you get me front row seats? And maybe make it so I don't have to wait in line? I'm telling won't be sorry. I'll be your best audience member. I'm an awesome clapper!

Happy Birthday Jon Cryer! You're 48 today and for the record...I would've picked Duckie!

Happy 29th Birthday Mandy Moore!

Dear Mandy Moore,
When I hear your music, I think of my daughter Julie, who has always been one of your biggest fans!

When I hear one of your songs, Mandy, or watch one of your movies, it's like no time has passed...and Julie's living with us...and she's a teenager...and her room's a mess...and smells of chlorine. Haha! (she was a swimmer and played waterpolo)

Now she's all grown up, lives some 700 miles away in a small town in Utah. She's happy and has a husband and a little boy and a home of her own...which is spotless, I might add, and DOESN'T smell of chlorine...Ever!

Mandy, thank you for your talent and for sharing it with us. And thank you for the good memories your talent has brought to my life.
Happy 29th Birthday!
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 23rd Birthday Kristen Stewart!

Kristen Stewart is 23 today. I know this may upset some Twilight fans, but it is a great mystery to me how she's landed lead roles in some pretty big films. If the roles call for monotone script reading with a wooden expression, lip biting and hair-flipping, then I guess she's your girl.

When my daughter wrote a one-act play for the "Theater of Note" a number of years ago, I got to watch the auditioning process. I was just an observer but got to witness some phenomenal actors. They were artists who were still pounding the pavement everyday...waiting for their "big break."

I suppose Kristen Stewart was just "in the right place at the right time." Many times that's all it takes in Hollywood.

There, I said it. That's how I feel.
...I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 47th Birthday Robin Wright!

Happy 47th Birthday Robin Wright...the Princess Bride,
I'm still waiting for someone to say to me: "As you wish."

Happy 61st Birthday Marilu Henner!

Dear Marilu,
Happy 61st Birthday! I'll bet today was a birthday you'll never forget...Because you can't! You have "Superior Autobiographical Memory" which means you recall almost every day of your life. I saw you on 60 Minutes a few years ago and they featured you and your amazing memory. At least I think it was you...I can't quite remember...You see, I DON'T have your memory! I can barely remember what I did 5 minutes ago!

Loved you on Taxi and in L.A.Story...
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 91st Birthday Doris Day!

Dear Doris,
Today you're 91. What have I learned from you? That everyone looks better with a blurry filter. Once you got a few lines on your face, you had a contract that all your closeups had to be filmed with the blurry filter...sometimes called the "Doris Day filter." It's especially noticeable in some of your most popular films when Rock Hudson is still in sharp focus, but you're all fuzzy and glowing.

Now I'm not saying that's a bad thing. I'm grateful for today's Photoshop and Instagram. Truth be known, I rarely post any pictures of myself online that don't have the "Doris Day filter!" Thanks for the great idea! As far as I'm concerned no "que serĂ¡ serĂ¡" for "whatever will be will be!" Why not make it all fuzzy and glowing, like you did?!
Happy 91st!
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 99th Alec Guinness!

Dear Alec "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Guinness,

Today you would be 99 yrs old but you left us in 2000. May I ask you a Star Wars question? This is something that has bothered me...

Why did Obi-Wan age so much between Star Wars 3 & 4? Perhaps your wrinkles & white hair can be explained by living outdoors for 20 yrs (in a cave, but still). Furthermore, you lived in windy, dry conditions & under double suns. Living under two suns must've wreaked havoc on your skin. (I know what one sun can do!)

So maybe this is why you looked like Ewan MacGregor once & then like you! These are the things that keep me up at night...

May The Force continue to be with you...wherever you are!
Regards, Mrs Love

Happy 74th Birthday Ali MacGraw!

Happy 74th Birthday Ali MacGraw!
If love means never having to say you're sorry...I didn't get the memo. I say it all the time. Sorry I didn't take your shirts to the dry cleaners...Sorry I didn't make dinner...Sorry I missed your call, I was busy playing Angry list goes on and on...
