Lucille Ball is one of my all-time favorite actors. I grew up watching I Love Lucy reruns with my grandfather on many afternoons, and still watch it now whenever it’s on TV. I even named my first (red) dog Lucy, after her. The way her 100th birthday was celebrated on the internet recently was so magical, especially the tiny television set on Google’s homepage.

One of the most unexpected roles I ever saw her in was in Ziegfeld Follies - she was every inch the glamour girl of Fanny Brice and Esther Williams, but still hammed it up better than the boys on her own show. I love a beautiful, smart and funny woman.

We’re big fans of tacos.
