Happy Birthday, Shirley MacLaine!

*****

Shirley, can I be serious?  I’m not sure…when you’re always smiling like you do.  [And, don’t call me Shirley.]

I’ve said so much about this gal already.  What more can I say?  She’s a delight to just about every sense (or so I imagine).  She’s…quite simply (and yet more complex than I may ever know) a unique and precious spark of life, a reason to smile for no good reason and the occasional naughty one.  Yet, for even the slightest dip in the naughty pool, she can bring you right back to the heavenly gates with some sort of glowing innocence.  If I never get to meet her in person, I feel I’ve already met her on another plane.  And, though I am sure to cry buckets when she’s “gone,” I suspect I’ll see her, again, somewhere, somehow.

Happy birthday, Shirley.

Happy Birthday, Chloe Bennet!

*****

When I first saw you, a light struck me from above, from the sky.  When I heard your velvety voice, my heart popped, exploding into a confetti storm of tiny stars.  I had no shield to protect me from the agent of infatuation you are, monkey girl.  I knew, deep down, you had some Aries spark.  Those big, bold yet inviting eyes, those petite rabbit teeth, those brown waves cascading around your glowing face….

Ehem.  What was I saying?

Oh yeah.  Happy birthday!  [And, if you’re not otherwise engaged……call me.]

A pretty face struggling to find her smile.  She will not be forced, camera people!

A stylish beauty who doesn’t need a smile.   [Nor does she need to highlight/bleach her naturally lovely hair.  Though, in the second fashion photo, she looks like she has even lost her spark a bit, even if her hair looks fantastic.]

There’s something odd about this photo (something to do with makeup and/or lighting).  Yet, there’s that look that can stop a raging bull in its tracks.

Happy Birthday, Daisy Ridley!

*****

I don’t want to monkey around and forget to post this notice.  I don’t know where I will be Monday.  So, I am putting these up tonight.  I picked out some of the better photos I could find.  [There were a number of sad fashion choices or forces (outfits possibly forced upon her for frothy magazine tabloids/interviews) through which I filtered.]

She wouldn’t cross my mind if not for Star Wars’ 7th chapter.  But, I anticipate learning more about her in the years to come.  As astrology goes, she and I make a very good match.  And, if she or someone who knows her finds this, I’d gladly take the chance to speak with her.  Ya know, if the opportunity Aries–er, arises.

Happy Birthday, Paige Spiranac

****

A belated wish for a happy birthday to the lovely Paige Spiranac who turned…  [I’ll be old-fashioned discreet about a woman’s age.  Though it is such a special year for her (hint).  And, I’m posting this two days late.]

One of the prettiest golfers and blondes I’ve ever seen and an astrological match that blows (or challenges) the mind.  I might just be slightly above or below par for the course.  But, she’s more dazzling than any eagle.  And, I wood be awed to meet the iron woman.

What Is Christmas About? –Steve Martin SNL style–

whatisChristmasabout_redholiday-sweater_ap-1

Looking at the pictures I find in my art scrapbook, a place where I go to drum up e-cards for those I meet and/or know online, I occasionally drift away with thoughts of jingle bells among other things. The holidays can be so commercial. And, I ask myself, “What is Christmas about?”

“Well,” I tell myself. “Christmas is about…”

The birth of the son of God, otherwise known as Jesus (for those who believe in the story). It’s his birthday above all else. Not the presents, shopping or Black Friday hype.

Ya know. Just thinking about Christmas conjures so many images! What would a winter holiday (for those who have it in winter) be without lovely women in cozy sweaters, sweater coats and festive sweatshirts you just want to cuddle til their arms fall off?! Oh, and all the stylish boots they have to pick from! So many boots.
So, Christmas is about beautiful women in cuddle-licious winter apparel…
And, the birthday of Jesus. Let’s not forget that.

But, I’m being self-centered. Maybe you don’t care for women in cozy-riffic winter apparel. Maybe you’re more interested in festive decor (indoors and/or outdoors): the trees, the lights, the candles, the artificial snow, the wreaths, the mistletoe, the stockings hung by the chimney with care, the coal, the chestnuts, the bells, the carolers, the lampposts, more artificial snow, the greeting cards from Christmases past and present, the fake presents, the birds and berries. Maybe you’d go so far as to wrap yourself in tinsel and hang ornaments from your ears! Hmm? Too much? What is too much, anyway?

So, Christmas is about decorating the house til your eyes bleed red, white and green. [Well, for those who decorate, anyway.]
Not for me. No. For me, it’s about all the beautiful women of the world in cuddle-uptuous winter apparel…
And, Jesus. It’s his birthday. Ya know? Show some respect. Don’t forget the Nativity set while you’re searching the attic, basement, garage and/or closets. That’s the most important piece, if you’re respecting the core of Christmas.

What about the kids and kids at heart? Maybe you’re the Kris-Kringle-coming-down-the-chimney-with-his-sack-of-goodies-to-grab-some-cookies-and-milk type. So, for you, Christmas is about a chubby bearded guy in a red and white suit coming to your homes to deliver presents before enjoying your holiday cookies with a cool glass of milk.

W-Wait. Didn’t I start this piece by mentioning jingle bells? And, what about snow? I know some of you down south might have your Christmas festivities in hot summer weather. But, I cannot imagine Christmas without jingling sleigh bells and gently falling snow covering the landscape in powdered sugar on a peaceful night. Just think of all the Christmas music people put out every year. Oh, my gosh! I forgot about caroling! ‘Can’t get enough versions of Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells; can we? Do you ever hear holiday carols with hot desert winds and seagulls squeaking over a swishing surf? [If you’re lucky, there might be one or two.]

So, if you forgot eeeeverything else: the women in winter apparel, the fat guy bringing you stuff down your chimney (or however he gets in there if you don’t have a chimney), the caroling, the cookies…and Jesus. Well, don’t forget him if you’re going to call it Christmas. But, Christmas is also about jingle bells on a sleigh swishing across a carpet of soft white snow on a silent starry night.

–Back off, Rudolph! You, too, Burl Ives snowman. I know. I’m sure I’ll get to you holiday movie icons soon enough. Go sit down with Ralphie, Charlie, Rex and Herb, Garfield and Clark. And, keep your hands off Mrs. Griswold.

…What were we talking about, again? My mind just drifted into this picture of a woman with lovely brown hair sitting in her cuddly white sweater coat while the snow gently falls outside her picture window. That’s what it’s all about, folks. Christmas is about women in cuddle-tastic winter apparel.

And, Jesus.

And, hot cocoa. Lots of hot cocoa.

Happy holidays from Writingbolt.
