Just like every year on this day, today Threshold wishes a happy birthday to the lovely and talented Carla Gugino!
And, of course, that means that it's time to wish a happy birthday to Threshold itself!
Yeah, about that...
Five years ago I happened to think, "Hey, I've been blogging for around a year or so, right?" I looked at the list of archived posts for 2004 and saw that the date range for the first week of posts started on 8/29/2004.
And I assumed that meant that was the date of Threshold's creation, and the date of my first post.
Further, I made the Threshold-Gugino connection because I happened to see on IMDb that it was her birthday, and further, that year's fall season would find her starring in a new series called Threshold. It was too perfect!
Yep. It was too perfect.
In rounding up some artwork to load onto my laptop for the Con, I went through a bunch of old posts, and in making my way backwards through time - more on that in another post - I stumbled onto a sad truth: Threshold was born on August 30th.
Still, celebrating the birth of Threshold and the birth of Carla Gugino has been a tradition for nearly as long as Threshold has been around - in fact, it's been a tradition for just one day shy of a year since Threshold began - and, apart from an interest in total honesty, I can't see any reason to change it.
So happy birthday, dear Carla Gugino! And happy birthday to you, dear Threshold!
