Photo of the Day!



Gosh, today was the day scheduled (yes, scheduled) for me to introduce Alias Smith and Jones to Kate! We (and Casey) were gonna watch an episode on Hulu and chat at the same time about it!

I hurried all day through my biology and other work, and at 3:30 (half hour before the start time) I came to start up my computer.

Of course, Hulu wouldn't load. Of course, I have never, ever had a problem loading Hulu (and I've watched hours on it). Nothing would work, I tried everything (LITERALLY everything).

I had to cancel.

Nothing could cheer me up, until...

I saw that above photo...and The Kid's face. It's the weirdest thing! Whenever I see his face I start laughing! Much like I do when I see the faces of Jack Lemmon, Robert Montgomery, and James Garner!

Anyways, we rescheduled! And do expect a post from me on her first taste of AS&J (over at my Old TV Show blog)...

That's all!

-Millie!

I promise I'll start writing REAL posts (and minus AS&J) sooon! I promise! ;-D

The Pink Outfit Award goes to.....KATE!



Kate's been working over time today getting people to watch Hayley Mills (aka one of the single most amazing people ever) movies! She got Nicole to promise to watch The Trouble With Angels and Sarah to put The Moon-Spinners (one the most underrated films ever) on her Netflix que! So for all that...she really did deserve an award!

The title of the award comes from Hayley's beyond amazing outfit in The Moon-Spinners, which both Kate and I wish we owned!

Anyways, go watch a Hayley movie!

Okay, no more stalling! Now, I REALLY need to go finish my biology homework....;-D

-Millie!

Dean Martin, Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, and Jack Benny...

In other news:

I finally got a Tumblr account (the peer pressure was too much for me to handle)! It's exclusively for photos of favorite vintage style! Style Personified

Also, in unrelated, non-vintage news: Raquelle just posted a recipe (with photos) over at her food blog (Thoughtful Eating) that I am very excited about and I'm going to go make it as soon as possible! It looks absolutely delicious! Pumpkin-Apple Desert!

Okay, that's it! Have a great day!

Lovely Lady of the Week: Claudine Longet

My Lovely Lady of the Week is Claudine Longet...



Claudine is a very talented French singer and actress who is also absolutely gorgeous! I have seen her in several television shows, but especially love her music! And really she has single-handedly THE most adorable French accent ever! (Now, I'll probably get a lot more disagreement on this, than even my Gina's better than Sophia declaration!)

Enjoy!


















^With her husband Andy Williams...




^VERY sixties!






^From Blake Edward's The Party...





Favorite Songs:

It's Hard To Say Goodbye


God Only Knows


You Don't Have To Be A Baby To Cry


How Insensitive


Is there anybody you delightful readers would like to see as The Lovely Lady of the Week soon?

Things I am utterly and irreparably addicted to at the moment!

~Alias Smith And Jones~



Only recently I discovered that this show, which previously I had only been able to watch now and then when it aired on TV (even then they were always mostly Roger "Fake Heyes" Davis episodes), was available almost in it's entirety on Hulu! From then, there was just no backing down. I just can't help myself! I keep watching them over and over and over and over....

P.S. My very favorite episode is Never Trust an Honest Man...






~Kid Curry's strange facial expressions~

Seriously, I crack up laughing every time I see his face:

(Kid Curry is on the right of this photo)







~Cherry Honey Ricola Cough Drops~



So, I actually didn't know that it was possible to overdose on Natural Herb Throat Drops (from Switzerland no less), but apparently it is. This occurred a week or two ago, on a Sunday. I was feeling poorly and was simultaneously chatting on AIM with Kate, Sarah, Casey, and Nicole. I was also quickly consuming an entire family pack of Cherry Honey Ricolas. I was even doing a countdown of how many I had left (okay, so I don't have a lot to bring to the conversation...I had to say something)! I had about four left, when suddenly I read the back of the package - and I quote - "Adults and children 6 years and older [well, I am over 6] dissolve [dissolve, what? I always start out sucking on them, but then end up chewing them...it's like my teeth get impatient] 2 drops [Um, only 2?] (one at a time [oh, yeah, I was so only chewing them one at a time]) slowly [I tried to chew them slowly!] in the mouth. Repeat every two hours [Oops, every 2 HOURS, not every 2 MINUTES? Just a little misunderstanding!] as as [Oh my gosh, the Ricola wrapper had a typo!] needed or as directed by a doctor [I feel like most doctors don't give out prescriptions for Ricola, but I could be totally wrong!]"

Yeah, so I mentioned my slight error to my concerned fellow bloggers, who tried to stage an intervention! But, it didn't work cause I was crawling along on the floor looking for a Ricola which had fallen out of it's wrapper!


~Trying to get Kate to at least tolerate Tyrone Power~

Really Kate? How can you not love those beautiful eyes?


^Swiped from DKoren at Sidewalk Crossings

~Procrastinating with Style~

Really it's so much more fun then your average procrastination!

~Wearing my black wool beret~


^That's not me, that's just some random person wearing a beret!

I have to admit, it was slightly awkward the other day when some old guy (the spitting image of Davy Jones in the present day) was also wearing a black wool beret...

~Fashion at the Oscars~




And, well I think that's about it for current addictions...I'm sure I'll be adding more soon! ;-D

BTW, my Lovely Lady of the Week, should be posted tomorrow!

Photo of the Day!



^My favorite choreographer Michael Kidd on the set of Guys and Dolls.

I am terribly sorry about the lack of Photo's of the Day lately! I just got a new laptop, and all my photos are saved to the family computer! Also, unfortunately, my brothers won't let me get on the family computer because, "You have you're on computer now!" (annoying!). Anyways, I'll be transferring the over as soon as possible! In the mean time the PotD may be a bit sporadic! I will try to post regularly, though!

Anything more gorgeous than Ingy?

Bobby Darin sings Once Upon A Time

Gosh, songs like this always make me so sad...especially when I know the backstory. It's the equivalent of Frank singing I'm A Fool To Want You.

But, Bobby singing Once Upon A Time is particularly tragic to me, because I love both Bobby and Sandra so much!

Anyways, the below clip was a from a live television special filmed in London. It was broadcast just two months after their divorce was finalized!



Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine,
And said she loved me so...
But that was once upon a time...
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars
And waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time,
Now the tree is gone


How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed
As though tomorrow wasn't there...
We were young
And didn't have a care
Where did it go?


Once upon a time
the world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again....

I scanned this one from my 2009 calendar, that's why it's a bit fuzzy!

Happy Birthday, Casey!



I am so first! Yay! ;-D

Anyways, just wanted to wish Casey (A.K.A NoirGirl) a very stupendously happy [early] birthday!

I really love your blog! And really love chatting with you! And you are really amazing and cool!

For you:



Also, [hehehe, really just to make Kate mad] Tyrone enjoying your Birthday party:



And also this [just because you are the first person in the universe (besides Dkoren) who knows what the heck I am talking about when I mention Alias Smith and Jones...even if you do like Heyes better....;-D]:




And finally:



Have a great birthday!

And it's really not my fault I'm early! It's just everyone else is 3 hours ahead of me! I had to post early in order to be first! ;-D

-Millie (and Billie the Fly...haha)!

Photo of the Day!

For Kate ('cause she didn't like yesterday's and got quite annoyed and then started demanding I offer a Dirk Bogarde Photo of the Day....seriously....the things I do for her....;-D):
