Lola gets

It's my formidable sister's birthday today.

She shares her birthday with a real mixed bag of talent, including Steven Berkoff, Dolores del Rio*, Martin Sheen, Rupert Brooke, Stanley Baldwin (1930s Prime Minister), PD James, Martha Stewart (American style guru), Kirk Brandon (Boy George's ex), John Landis, Tony Bennett...

...and Richard Adler, the composer of this song.

Dedicated to dear Hils, it's Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets)!

Have a lovely day, dearie!

* PS Dolores del Rio is our latest entry in the Dolores Delargo Towers Museum of Camp...


  1. Happy Birthday Hils - hope she has a lovely day xox

  2. Thanks so much for this sweetie. I meant to reply yesterday, but the History Boy and I accidentally had a bottle of champagne when we got in last night. The upshot was that we were dancing to this at 3am this morning… I vaguely remember there being some Max Boyce too for some unknown reason. It was that sort of night. Today has been a bit of a blur as I’m sure you understand. See you in Amsterdam for more disgraceful behaviour!

    1. I love the "accidentally" part of that story...


      PS Sarah Vaughan and Max Boyce never did a duet, as far as I am aware.
