Happy Birthday, #1 Crush

It was 56 years ago today that this little guy came into the world (19 years and 1 day before I did). I've loved him since I was 5 —literally for as long as I can remember — and even though he's sporting some crazy hair on his face and no hair on his head (where it ought to be) right now, I still love him as much as I did back then. Guess who?

Okay, so "guess who" was more of a cutesy rhetorical question rather than a trivia question. Because, unless you're completely new to my blog (and/or can't see the picture down below), that would be, like, a negative 20 on the trivia difficulty scale.

Why, it's John Travolta, of course. Everyone wish him a happy birthday. You don't have to have a cupcake in his honor, like I do every year, but it couldn't hurt. Unless you gave up sweets for that crazy "Lent" thing all those kids with the dirty foreheads are talking about these days.

Oh, and since my birthday is tomorrow, you know what you can do for me? Don't leave a comment about my beloved that will only serve to piss me off. You instigators know who you are.

Happy Birthday John Travolta! You have brought us great entertainment over the years, and NOBODY rocks the tight white suit as well as you did. No one will stop me from having a cupcake in your honor today.

Gee, I hope he reads this.

and happy early Birthday BeckEye! You have brought us great entertainment over the years, and NOBODY rocks the tighty whiteys as well as you do. No one will stop me from having a cupcake in your honor tomorrow.

Ooo! Ooo! Mr. Cah-ter! Mr. Cah-ter!

Vinnie Barabrino's all growed up! And he doesn't have to live in that plastic bubble anymore.

Confession time: Have you SEEN "The Experts"? The last movie before "Look Who's Talking" revived his career?

I have.

Damn you and your thwartyness.

But happy birthday for tomorrow Big Fella!

I like that nickname as you're neither big nor a fella.

Beck, I now know why we seem to get along so well. Your lifelong crush has been on Travolta, and mine most decidedly has been on Olivia Newton-John.

I might be the only person on the planet who would willingly sit down and re-watch "Two of a Kind" if I stumbled on it.

Oh yeah, and HAPPY BIRFDAY! You're just a young lass yet!

Happy early Birthday, Becky! And I hope John has a good one today.

I liked The Experts.

And John WAS in Pulp Fiction and Grease and, for that, will always have a special place in my heart. Especially if he really does renounce Scientology...

So, what I'm trying to say is, "Happy Birthday" to the both of yous!

Scope, I actually just watched "The Experts" again a few weeks ago. A movie nerd friend of mine owns it because he has a strange fascination with Arye Gross. It's stupid, but still enjoyable.

By the way, asking me if I've seen any John Travolta movie is kind of like asking the Pope if he's ever been to church. I own most of his catalog (even the ridiculous "Shout") on VHS or DVD.

BeckEye said...

Oh... thanks for all the b-day wishes to me, you guys. And thanks for being nice to my Johnny today. :)

Yeah, birthday on a Friday! I hope you have a great time. Happy Birthday! Don't read this comment until tomorrow.

I'm going to try my darndest to put a big red bow on John and give him to you for your 40th....I still have a few years to come up with my kidnapping plan. Maybe I'll hire cousin Eddie.

Happy belated birthday to you and John.

There's obviously a connection between the two of you--it's written in the stars for all time!


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
