Bombdiggity Women, Part III

Jamie Lee Curtis
This girl DEFINES bombdiggity.  Jamie Lee Curtis is an everything woman, and I want to be just like her when I grow up someday :-)  She is an actress who quickly shed the "teen scream queen" image to successfully act in several movies of different genres ("Trading Places", "A Fish Called Wanda", "True Lies", "Freaky Friday").

She is also a prolific writer of children's books (among them "Today I Feel Silly" and "Other Moods That Make My Day"), some of which I have had the good fortune to read to classes of children when I was substitute teaching.

Bet you didn't know this (from Wikipedia):

"In 1987, Curtis filed a US patent application that subsequently issued as Patent No. 4,753,647. This is a modification of a diaper with a moisture proof pocket containing wipes that can be taken out and used with one hand.[15] Curtis refused to allow her invention to be marketed until companies started selling biodegradable diapers,[16] although the full statutory term of this patent expired February 20, 2007 and is now in the public domain."

Probably the coolest thing about Ms. Curtis is that she unabashedly stars in commercials for Activia yogurt by Dannon, a probiotic yogurt--yeah, the kind that keeps you regular.  Way too awesome!

Plus the fact that she is so darned attractive.  In football, they used to call that piling on.
