Saturday Night Social: Everything Belongs To Hedy Lamarr


Happy Birthday, Hedy Lamarr! You knew she was one of the world’s most beautiful actresses, but did you know she was also an inventor? Lamarr and composer George Antheil, invented one of the most “most celebrated” frequency hopping thingamabobs and in 1942, then received U.S. Patent 2,292,387 for their “Secret Communications System”. Well, OK then! Tonight I figured out that, when desperate, you can mix white wine with cherry Coke and make it look like you bought that drink at the movie theater concession stand. Top that, Hedy!

That’s all for me! They are going to put me back on the little bed under Jessica Coen’s desk I sleep in until they need another person fascinated by sloths, short little words and Retta to blog again.
