In an effort to avoid spoilers about my night last night, I’m just going to go ahead and get on with it. Onward with the history!

December 14th, 2011: Can you believe it was just last year? The community lost one of its greats- Joe Simon passed away at age 98 in New York City.

December 16th, 1967: The ever-gorgeous woman known to international audiences as Éowyn in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Miranda Otto is born in Brisbane, Australia.

December 17th, 1944: The man who played the uncle of Miranda Otto in The Lord of the Rings trilogy (yes, Théoden you goofs!) Bernard Hill is born in Manchester, England.

December 18th, 1981: Joshua Dallas, better known as ‘Charming’ (Once Upon a Time of course!) is born in Louisville, Kentucky.


December 18th, 1988: I know I mentioned this last year, but it really shouldn’t be forgotten. The ever-awesome writer and contributor, Annaleigh Josephs (yup, yours truly!) is born in North Kansas City, Missouri!

  • 2 parts champagne (or any basic sparkling will do, extra dry or drier)

Mix all using a swizzle stick in a highball glass with ice and enjoy!

And, of course… let’s Garnish the week as such:

Until next week, enjoy our 12 Days of Christmas special and geek on!
