Drink Less, Miss Less

Bobbie Gentry – a woman – is turning 65 today. She was a really popular singer/songwriter in the 1960s, once even knocking Sgt Pepper off the top of the album charts in America. And, well, that’s all we know. It’s a rubbish day for birthdays, frankly. It was either her or Dick Van Dyke’s brother, Jerry. Pretty lame. Even so, we thought we’d get Bobbie a gift, so we all put hooded tops on and sat at the back of a bus whispering ideas to one another and occasionally glaring at people, until it boiled down to a toss up between a small bag of strawberries or a an anti-binge drinking video starring Lauren Laverne that a PR company wondered if we’d feature on the site. In the end we got her both. Happy Birthday Bobbie Gentry!
