Happy Birthday Christina Hendricks!

As you may have seen in yesterday's "This Week in Buffy History", today is Christina Hendricks' birthday. The lovely and talented Ms. Hendricks, a former Desktop Girl of the Week selection, turns 35 today. I'm going to go out on a limb and say she's the hottest 35-year-old on the planet. Who isn't anticipating her return to our TV screens as the lovely and talented Joan Holloway on "Mad Men" (just 83 more days -- and interestingly enough, the IMDB cast list for the Mad Men Season 4 premiere lists her as Joan Holloway again, not Joan Harris, which could mean offseason change for Joanie).

Let's enjoy some of Christina's finest moments. First up, her cameo in the "Angel" Season 1 episode, "The Prodigal".

Then, in her first of two "Firefly" appearances, a partially-nude Christina makes the bed warm for Mal. MMMM....
"Woah... good bible."

And finally, Joan Holloway makes her triumphant debut.
Now THAT'S a woman. I'd say they don't make 'em like that anymore, but they do. Or, at least they made 'em like that on this day back in 1975. So happy 35th Christina Hendricks.
