Today is my birthday kids.
Your fearless EIC is celebrating a big one this year. It ends in a 0 so I'm celebrating another decade on the big blue marble.
Today is the big 5-0 for yours truly.
It's hard to believe I'm this old, but here we are.
So, as I prepare to celebrate with family, I'm going to make this one short and sweet.
Today we celebrate my birthday with a retro-cheesecake. She's the woman who awakened feelings in me that I didn't know what was going on.
Please say hello to Jaclyn Smith.
Ms. Smith rose to fame as one of the original trio of Charlie's Angels
Her Kelly Garrett was my favorite.
Sure, Farrah had the red swimsuit poster, but the photo up top was the one that was hanging in my room.
I tore down a Donny and Marie post and replaced it with paper thin pink satin sex.
How big was Charlie's Angels
It was so big that Topps even made a set of trading cards. I scored one of Ms. Smith in her iconic white bikini. I got lots of offers for that card. I turned them all down, keeping the card tucked away in my zippered wallet until it was completely worn down.
Ms. Smith made it through the entire run of the original series and was the only original angel to appear in the 90s movies.
These days she is busy hocking her clothing line and appearing in Lifetime movies, but during those ever so impressionable years of my youth, she was the one that got me going.
Thanks Ms. Smith and happy birthday to me.
