Happiest of birthdays to January Jones!

She is having an amazing go of it, between the accolades she’s received for her stellar performance as Betty Draper, and her appearance in Pirate Radio, not to mention hosting Saturday Night Live. Jan also has upcoming roles in two feature films; Unknown White Male directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, and The Hungry Rabbit Jumps directed by Roger Donaldson.

Cheers, Ms. Jones!

And here’s the thing–I’m the birthday girl around the Basket, and I got sick over the holidays. Just your basic bronchitis. I sounded like a muppet. But I missed some birthdays and other occasions, and I wanted to just give a little shout-out:

  • December 29th was our favorite representative of the Borscht Belt, Patrick Fischler (Jimmy Barrett)
  • December 29th was also our very favorite hat-wearing wife, Alison Brie (Trudy Vogel Campbell)
  • December 30th was the 12th birthday of Brandon Killham. Who? Why it’s young Dick ˜bowlcut’ Whitman, who really is a terrific actor.
  • And we love to send out congratulations as well for the New Year’s Eve Eve couple–December 30th was the 11th wedding anniversary of John Slattery and Talia Balsam
  • Kisses to all!

    1. Been waiting all day for this to pop up. I remembered first thing this morning that this is January’s day. Kinda weird, huh? (Unfortunately, it’s my thing – kindergarten boyfriend, April 14. Once I’ve heard someone’s birthday, it just never leaves my brain, don’t know why . . . ) Hope today is the yummy icing on her incredible past year.

      Kudos for including anniversary kisses to John & Talia. So happy for them and all the cast members who got married this past year. Congrats to all!

      Roberta, I spent a few weeks sounding like a muppet myself mid-December. Hope you’re feeling better.

    2. Happy belated birthday, Ms. Jones!
