I’m Sensing a Trend

I’m lucky enough to share a birthday with one of my favourite actors (John Gilbert), one of my favourite writers (Marcel Proust) and the possessor of one of the most brilliant (recorded) minds in history (Nikola Tesla). What else do they have in common? Hmmm, let’s see.

I’ve found that frivolous observations are best made on serious days. I’m off to celebrate with the husband at the newest contemporary Indian restaurant/bar in town. Toodles.

  1. Happy Birthday! Woot! Hope it’s gawgus! The three all have mustaches and part their slick hair in the center of their head. There’s something adorable about that curly hair on Proust’s forehead. πŸ™‚


    • Thanks, it was lovely. Did you notice that I started with he of the thinnest moustache and worked my way up to he of the thickest? It was fun, and something that I only noticed earlier that day!


    • Thanks and thanks! I know all about that story, and many others! I probably know more about John Gilbert than most people alive. Not that that’s anything to brag about, since it is so strange. πŸ™‚ As if I am not enough of a specialist writing about silent cinema, I have found that I cannot stop writing about JG in particular (as well as a few other special pets).
