Readers, it doesn't seem possible.
Could it actually be National Pie Day again so soon? My goodness, how time flies!
As you know, coincidentally, National Pie Day is also the birthday of Male Pattern Boldness. Today we turn FOUR!
If someone told me in 2010 that I'd still be blogging in 2014, I wouldn't have believed them. How do I do it? I consider blogging to be a lot like sobriety: you take it one day at a time, and I hope nobody thinks I'm trivializing writing a blog in saying so.
As on every January 23rd, the telegrams and telepathic good wishes have been pouring in from our many celebrity friends -- perhaps fewer than in years past, but that's OK. Among them...
Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Ford.
Joan Collins and June Allyson.
And -- a first for us -- her Royal Highness Queen Sofia of Spain.
I also want to honor some of the people who work behind the scenes at MPB. You won't recognize their names but I couldn't function without them.
First, makeup artist Carole, who keeps me looking flawless.
My hairstylist, Alexandre de Paris. He turned me on to the vinegar rinse.
And finally, the three girls in the back office who work tirelessly answering phones, making coffee, and keeping my workspace tidy -- Doris, Mary, and Angie.
Friends, I hope you'll be celebrating this very special day at home with a slice of pie, a glass of milk, and maybe a journey through the massive MPB archives. You can go back to the beginning, or just pick a random search word and see where it takes you.
Happy National Pie Day, everybody, and, as always, thanks for being there!
