After working the last 7 days straight with 1 more to go I'm a bit knackered and just not up to putting a quote quiz together this week. The quote quiz will return next week but for now I leave you with some excellent Christmas pin-ups!

It's Jane Fonda's birthday! And to celebrate the life of such a wonderful actress here are 5 facts you may or may not have known about the woman...and maybe a few extra pictures :)
1.Her birth name is Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda.
2. Is the subject of an erroneous urban legend. When Vassar was a women's college, the story goes, Jane Fonda refused to wear the elegant white gloves and pearls that were the attire for the daily Tea in the Rose Parlor. When confronted, Fonda returned to the parlor wearing the gloves and the pearls, and nothing else.
3. The suicide of her socialite mother Frances Seymour Brokaw was kept from her as a teenager, and she was told that she'd died of heart failure. Household newspaper and magazine subscriptions were canceled, and the staff and student body of Fonda's high school were instructed not to discuss the incident. Fonda learned the truth months later while leafing through a movie magazine in art class.
4. Jane was mentioned on Sir Mix-A-Lot's 1992 hit single "Baby Got Back".
5. Jane now openly admits that she suffered from bulimia from age 13 to age 37. While modeling, she said she lived on cigarettes, coffee, speed, and strawberry yogurt.
