Happy Birthday

Alan Alda turns 74 today. It's probably ridiculously dorky to admit, but I deeply love M*A*S*H. It was one of my grandpa's favorite shows when I was little and he must have engendered an appreciation for it in me because if I'm channel surfing and it's on, I must watch it. My life-long affection for M*A*S*H aside, I've also adored Alan Alda in a million other things - I totally dig the movie The Four Seasons, I loved him as the doctor with alzheimers on ER and as the Senator/Presidential hopeful on the final season of The West Wing, and tons of other movie roles I can't think of off the top of my head.

Teeny, tiny, cutey patootey Elijah Wood is 29 today.

My favorite movie with Alan Alda in it is "Same Time Next Year" with Ellen Burnstyn. It is hilarious.

That's a good one too! The thing with the watch always amuses me. See, he's great right?
