Dear Famous Person ... Sincerely, Smudge Ink: March

by Sabrina Garber

Just a few notes we'd like to send this month to Dr. Suess, Albert Einstein, Clayton Beltran, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Christopher Walken ...

Happy Birthday Dr. Suess

THIS CARD to Theodore Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Suess (born March 2, 1904)

Happy birthday, Theodore (or should I say Dr Seuss)!!! I must say you’re one of my favorite authors for children's books. They are all "wicked awesome." I love all the silly characters you have invented along with all of the rhyming. I have wonderful childhood memories of my mother reading me Green Eggs & Ham, Are you My Mother?, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and I got to pass those books onto my children for bedtime reading as well. Happy birthday from me & my family …

Sincerely, Rheana

Happy Birthday Albert EinsteinTHIS CARD to Albert Einstein (born March 14, 1879)

Hey Albert,

I'm sure you already knew that, but I wanted to reiterate the sentiment since your birthday is coming up. I also just recently watched a two part PBS series on how you and your intelligence came to be. It was pretty fascinating; I may watch it again really. PBS NOVA rarely grants a two part series to any subject matter. Way to go, Albert! Oh and of course, thanks for your contributions to the world of physics and abstract thought. I mean I rarely use it, but everyone in the physics, science, engineering world loves your e=mc^2. Anywho, have a great birthday ... excuse my stream of conscious but consider your contribution to the world AMAZING.

Sincerely, Clayton

Happy Birthday ClaytonTHIS CARD to Clayton Beltran (born March 15, 1988)

Dear Clayton,

OK, so there isn’t a Wikipedia page about you … YET. But you’re a mega talented star over here at Smudge HQ! Happy birthday to the one who keeps the jams going, the hot lunches epic, and the hearing selective (Clayton, CLAYton, CLAAYTON!). Cheers to you, an oldie—in that old soul at 28 kind of way—but most definitely a goodie.

Sincerely, All of Us

Happy Birthday Sarah Jessica ParkerTHIS CARD to Sarah Jessica Parker (born March 25, 1965)

Dear Sarah,

In my eight years as a New Yorker not a dull moment was had knowing that an amazing group of gals would be there to laugh or cry with me. Watching you as Carrie Bradshaw, with Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha by your side, we felt glamorous even without the shoe collection to back it up. So on your birthday, I wanted to say thanks. It's so true: “dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style."

Sincerely, Sabrina

Happy Birthday Christopher Walken
THIS CARD to Christopher Walken (born March 31, 1943)

Dear Mr. Walken,

The truth is I find you creepy in every role you play. While I'm sure you're lovely in real life, I expect this is a sentiment shared by many. Also likely shared by many is the fact that the greatest role you ever played was on April 8, 2000 when you starred as "The" Bruce Dickinson alongside Will Ferrell on SNL. Nearly 16 years later and I bet you can't walk down the street without someone asking you for more cowbell ... amirite? So call me unoriginal, but I'm sending you this card to wish you a very happy 73rd birthday!

Stay creepy and thanks for the laughs!

Sincerely, Deb
