Alice B. Toklas 1877

Image result for alice b toklas


Stein often referred to Toklas as her “wifey” and addressed her as “baby precious.” Writing late into the night, the author liked to leave notes next to the pillow for Alice to find in the morning, signed “Y.D,” short for “Your Darling.” In an ideal, civilized world of human rights and equality, theirs would have been a marriage — and it would have been one of the happiest and most exemplary in literary history.


*Live your life to be as happy as you can. Part of that happiness will come from not worrying about how other people are living their life to be happy.


Gal Gadot 1985

Image result for gal gadot gif


Gadot hit the gym for six hours over a six month period. (Meanwhile, we’re over here trying to get through six hours of work without eating a doughnut…) “I did two hours gym work, two hours fight choreography, and two hours horseback riding.


*The only option is probably a nice two hour gym workout. Unless you have a way to do fight choreography or horseback riding. And no doughnuts today!


Cloris Leachman 1926

Image result for cloris leachman


“Throw out words like ‘fitness,’ ‘exercise,’ ‘diet,’ ” the actress advised during a phone interview. “All those good words–‘physically fit’–I’ve gotten so sick of those words. It sucks.

“I like that word: Suck up life, suck up good stuff. Throw out all those other boring, dead, overused, meaningless words.


*Suck up life today. Suck up all the good stuff today. Except doughnuts.


Isiah Thomas 1961

Image result for isiah thomas 1961


In 2009, Thomas took the FIU job and said he was going to donate his first year of salary back to the school because he “did not come [to Florida International] for the money.” This was probably because he had a side hustle with the Knicks lined up, which he had to back out of because it was against NBA rules. Then he led FIU to a 26-65 record over three seasons.


*Be careful what you promise and make sure that your side hustle is legal.

Kirsten Dunst 1982 – The Next Best Thing to Tom Cruise Cake

Image result for kirsten dunst tom cruise


Dunst famously described her first on-screen kiss—with Brad Pitt, no less—as “disgusting” on the Sept. 23, 2014 episode of Conan. She was much more verbose about the on-screen kiss shortly before the film was released on Nov. 11, 1994.

When asked by Kristine McKenna what the hardest part of making the movie was, Dunst said: “Kissing Brad Pitt! It was horrible and I hated it. Brad and Tom [Cruise] were like my big brothers on the set, so it was like kissing your big brother–totally gross!”

Pitt told her: “How do you think I feel? I have to kiss a little girl.”


It is over two decades since Kirsten Dunst starred alongside Tom Cruise in Interview With The Vampire – but Tom is still conscientious about sending a Christmas present every year.

Even better: Every year, without fail, he sends something called “The Cruise Cake”.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Kirsten, 33, said: “He sends me a cake every Christmas. We are very excited to receive ‘The Cruise Cake’.

“He has kept it going for a really long time, which is impressive. I’ve never given any one a gift for that length of time except for my parents.”



*Make this Next Best Thing to Tom Cruise Cake – it’s better than kissing Brad Pitt.

Daniel Day-Lewis 1957

Image result for daniel day lewis gif



Daniel Day-Lewis Refuses To Break Character And Lived In The Wilderness For Half A Year

Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the most notorious method actors who has ever lived, because he consistently does batshit crazy things to get into character for his roles. For example, when preparing for his role as Abraham Lincoln in the 2012 film … um, Lincoln, Day-Lewis inhabited his interpretation of Honest Abe 24/7. He would tell water cooler jokes about the Civil War as if it were currently being covered on CNN. He also insisted on speaking in his carefully crafted Abraham Lincoln voice at all times, regardless of whether he was rehearsing a scene or talking about the most recent episode of Mad Men.

Day-Lewis would even send text messages to his co-star Sally Field, who played Lincoln’s wife, Mary Todd, as if Abraham Lincoln was the one sending the messages. He made sure all of his texts used the language and grammar of Civil War-era America, which Field would then have to attempt to reciprocate, despite the fact that people from the mid-19th century would chew their own lips off in helpless insanity after laying eyes on an iPhone 6.



*This could fall under ENTERTAINMENT, but watch Lincoln and/or The Last of the Mohicans to see the metamorphosis that Lewis goes under to get into character.


Michelle Pfeiffer 1958

Pfeiffer, who runs 4 to 6 miles a day on the treadmill, switched to a vegan diet several years ago to improve her health and boost longevity.

Willie Nelson 1933

The former NASCAR driver’s widow, Teresa Earnhardt, wants to keep the name from being used by Earnhardt’s son and her stepson, Kerry Earnhardt, and his wife in their home designs and furniture business.

Uma Thurman 1970 – Durward Kirby burger – bloody – and the famous “Five Dollar Milk Shake”

Image result for uma thurman pulp fiction


Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake

Marsellus Wallace asks Vincent to go out with his wife while he’s away, and Mia Wallace, played by Uma Thurman in a pert Louise Brooks–style wig, takes him to Jack Rabbit Slim’s—an homage to the 1950s with booths made from tail-finned cars and Ed Sullivan, Ricky Nelson, and Marilyn Monroe impersonators waiting tables. Vincent and Mia order food from a Buddy Holly–look-alike waiter (played by Steve Buscemi)— a “Douglas Sirk” steak and a “vanilla Coke” for Vincent, and a “Durward Kirby” burger and the famous “Five Dollar Milk Shake” for Mia. Despite the unsavory aspects of both characters, the date has a certain amount of innocence. It’s a throwback to a simpler time, when girls and boys drank milk shakes and had to be home by curfew.




*Make this Durward Kirby burger and wash it down with a $5 milkshake. Enjoy this 1950s meal while watching Pulp Fiction – I know, this movie is recommended a lot.

Image result for oskar schindler




Seven lists in all were made by Oskar Schindler and his associates during the war, while four are known to still exist. Two are at the Yad Vashem in Israel, one is at the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., and one privately owned list was unsuccessfully auctioned off via eBay in 2013.

The movie refers to the first two lists created in 1944, otherwise known as “The Lists of Life.” The five subsequent lists were updates to the first two versions, which included the names of more than 1000 Jews who Schindler saved by recruiting them to work in his factory.

Penelope Cruz 1974 – shrimp stew

Image result for penelope cruz gif


The movie we’re currently using for culinary inspiration over at Food ‘n Flix is Woman on Top starring Penelope Cruz.  It’s fun…it’s a chick-flick…it  has sexy men and (dare I say) even sexier food! With her cooking, Isabella can mesmerize palates…and men…wherever she goes.  Fleeing from her cheating husband and their restaurant in her native Brazil, she lands in San Francisco to start over from scratch.  Isabella strives to find balance between her need to control (hence, woman on top) and the passion in her heart.

Coretta King was his other half. She did more than anyone else to advance his legacy. And, dare I say, if it were not for this woman by his side, his legacy would never have risen to such heroic proportions.

Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump published a long blog entry last night on his personal site in which he laments the commercial failure of his solo album, Soul Punk, and his status as a “has-been” at 27. “Whatever notoriety Fall Out Boy used to have prevents me from having the ability to start over from the bottom again,” he wrote.

John James Audubon 1785

Image result for john james audubon


John James Audubon (1785-1851) was not the first person to attempt to paint and describe all the birds of America (Alexander Wilson has that distinction), but for half a century he was the young country’s dominant wildlife artist. His seminal Birds of America, a collection of 435 life-size prints, quickly eclipsed Wilson’s work and is still a standard against which 20th and 21st century bird artists, such as Roger Tory Peterson and David Sibley, are measured.

Duncan was a champion swimmer in St. Croix, where his sister had been an Olympian in 1988. But the following year, when Duncan was a tall, lanky 13-year-old with an eye on the Games in 1992 or 1996, Hurricane Hugo ripped through the island, tearing off roofs, uprooting trees and otherwise leaving the island’s main pool useless.

Al Pacino 1940


On this, almost everyone was agreed: Al Pacino was looking like a disaster as Michael Corleone.

Shooting had begun in early 1971. Pacino recalls the Paramount suits looking at the rushes and saying: “What the hell is this kid doing? And he’s short to boot.” They thought he was delivering an “anemic” performance. The studio brass, Pacino says, “tried to fire me three times.”

There “was a movement not to have me in the part,” the 76-year-old actor recalls, sitting on the porch of his rental house in the flats of Beverly Hills. “I didn’t want me in the part.”

Mix well, and stir in a little milk gradually, using only enough to make a firm dough…Knead the dough, roll it into sheets, and cut into designs with a cooky cutter. Butter a cooky sheet, place the cookies on them far enough apart to prevent touching. Bake in a medium (350 degrees F.) oven until very lightly browned. Makes 48.”
