January 17, 2014: Seriously? You’re still holding to those resolutions? Even after tempura and strawberry ice cream and English toffee and everything else January has thrown at you? I’m impressed. But now is the time to slack off; it’s officially Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day. If you keep it up beyond today, you may well have formed habits that will last you throughout the year. And you’ll make the rest of us look bad.
In choosing the celebrity who would be ditching their resolutions, I figured the one least likely to hold to a resolution might just be Al Capone. But what an amazing list of people born today: Eartha Kitt, Zooey Deschanel, Jim Carrey, James Earl Jones, Kid Rock, Shari Lewis, Muhammed Ali, Michelle Obama, and Betty White. Imagine the dinner party you could throw for all of those January 17 babies.
