Happy birthday to Keanu Reeves, who turns 46 today!

Dude, why so sad?
Why don’t you go buy yourself a present? Like a new Apple product? That always makes us feel better.
No? Well then, how about you go hang with the Old Spice Guy? He smells really, really good, and maybe some of his Swagger will rub off on you (not a gay reference, BTW, we’d never do that on your bday)?
California Gov. Schwarzenegger has nominated 3rd District Court of Appeal Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye to be the next chief justice of the California Supreme Court, which would make Cantil-Sakauye the first Asian American (and Filipina) to lead the state’s highest court, if confirmed in November.
The LA Times calls the 50 year-old Sacramento native–who’s a Republican but also known as an “independent thinker”–”a surprise nominee who is relatively unknown outside judicial circles,” so here’s what we’d like to know about her:
- What are her politics?
- What’s up with that fabu name?
- What kind of face cream is she using and where do we get some?!
Thanks, Dad and Tom!

Y’all know we’ve always thought Ann Curry was a robot. A really silky-voiced, smooth-skinned, awkward-dancing, non-aging robot programmed to never have her lipstick smudge and to have a fangirl’s devotion to Brad Pitt.
BUT WE WERE WRONG.
Because over the weekend, Ann Curry made a mistake. While giving the commencement address at Wheaton College in Massachusetts, she confused it with the Wheaton College in Illinois by citing the latter’s illustrious alumni, which include evangelist Billy Graham, director Wes Craven, and 9/11 hero Todd Beamer.
Proof positive that Ann is…human?
DOES NOT COMPUTE, DOES NOT COMPUTE.
Read her charming apology here, where she asks for forgiveness twice and admits, “I am mortified by my mistake.” She may not be a robot, but feeling shame over making a very public mistake means she’s most definitely Asian.
Thanks, Shaheen and Dave!

Fatty of Figgy And Fatty posted a news story about a 500-year-old Korean mummy that was recently unearthed with her purse buried beside her (Y’hear that, people? Proof right there that you will never get between a Korean girl and her very expensive bag).
The Daily Mail featured a photo:
And correct me if I’m wrong, but homegirl still looks DAMN good. We really never age, do we?
Happy birthday to the beautiful and talented Joan Chen, who turned 49 (???!?!?!?!?) this week!
We can’t believe it’s been 20 years since we fell for Chen’s mysterious eyes on Twin Peaks. Here’s a vintage scene from Season 2 to remind you how she could singlehandedly inspire sexy fantasies with just a blink of her eyelashes:
Um. It’s possible that her skin actually got smoother and more radiant over the years. Does she only get more interesting and sultry? How can we do that?

Have you heard about Lisa Mei Norton, right-wing Christian conservative country singer/songwriter?
She wants to keep her guns, finds Michelle Malkin and her ilk to be “smart,” thinks we’ve gone socialist, believes Obama wasn’t born here and loves to (tea) party. Oh, and she’s already working on the indoctrinasian of her six-year-old son. Translasian: She watches Fox News.

Name: Karen Han
Occupation: Erhu (Chinese two-stringed violin) Virtuoso
Hails from: Los Angeles
Why She’s A Babe: Flawless Skin. Elegant Lines. A killer musical talent. And then some.
It was hard to take our eyes off of Han during the broadcast of the Oscars, in which her husband Paul N.J. Ottosson won two consecutive awards for Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing on The Hurt Locker. Now, winning is damn near everything to Asians, but when someone other than ourselves does the winning, it can be another story. In fact, one of the most of telling moments in any of our lives is watching someone else–particularly our partners–win.
See video of the acceptance speech:

3) Her character is Camille Wray, a “strategically savy (sic) member of the International Oversight Committee (IOA) and the highest ranking one stranded aboard the Destiny.” This is code for “hot lesbian not to be fucked with.”
4) Ming-Na will be engaging in some serious girl-on-girl action with 24‘s Reiko Aylesworth, who plays Wray’s Earthbound life-partner.
5) IRL, Ming-Na is a Steelers fan. Which means Diana would like to make out with her, too.
6) She has been professionally credited as “Ming-Na Wen,” “Ming Wen” and “Ming-Na.”
7) Ming-Na is 45 years old.
8) She has the skin of cherubs after a diamond facial.
9) She may have been the real-life inspiration for Benjamin Button.
10) We would hate on her for looking so damn good, but we’d really like to get the name of her derm.
Happy birthday to Former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, who turns 56 (but looks a smooth 36) today! For her special day, we wish Elaine a calm, relaxing year with no professional responsibilities. Oh good, our wish is coming true!
And while I don’t know who on this Earth would actually hope for a) a release of the first two seasons on DVD and b) a reunion of the original cast members, I am actually pretty happy that both are happening this month. Particularly because after watching a sneak peek of the reunion:
…I realized that everyone still looks exactly the same as they did twelve years ago. WEIRD! Are they all borrowing Jennie “Sam” Kwan’s anti-Asian cream, or what?

40 year-old Lucy Liu graces the April cover of Vogue China, looking oddly like a can of Sprite.
