Kaley Cuoco’s Birthday

bigbangNovember 30 is Kaley Cuoco’s birthday! She is best known for her current role as Penny on CBS comedy series The Big Bang Theory.

Kaley Cuoco was born on November 30, 1985 in Camarillo, California. Cuoco took up tennis when she was only 3 years old and became a nationally ranked amateur tennis player. She took lessons from Kathy Bryan, mother of famed twin tennis duo Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan, and has been one of their longtime friends. She began acting soon after that and made her first big acting debut in the movie Virtuosity in 1995 alongside actor Denzel Washington.

As a child, Cuoco appeared in six Barbie commericials, and was home schooled on the set, graduating high school at age 16. That same year, she took a starring role in the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules as the blonde bombshell daughter of John Ritter. She won a Teen Choice Award for this role, but the show was cancelled soon after the untimely death of Ritter. Following the cancellation of 8 Simple Rules, she took various roles in lesser-known television shows and films before landing the role of Billie Jenkins, a powerful young witch, in cult TV hit Charmed. The show’s producer stated that Cuoco’s role was originally brought on to create a spin-off for the show, but this idea never played out after Charmed was completed.

Cuoca began starring in the role of Penny in The Big Bang Theory, which has skyrocketed her into stardom, in September 2007. She plays a sassy ditzy aspiring actress who works at the Cheesecake Factory and lives across the hall from two nerdy scientists. Cuoca received $60,000 an episode at the show’s start, and now makes $350,000 per episode along with co-stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki. In the show’s seven seasons, she has received several awards for portraying Penny, and has also hosted the People’s Choice Awards and the Teen Choice Awards.

Since being on The Big Bang Theory, Cuoco has starred in a few movies and also became a regular in Priceline commercials alongside William Shatner. She also announced her recent engagement to pro tennis player, Ryan Sweeting.

Stay Home Because You’re Well Day

Happy Stay Home Because You’re Well Day!

November 30 is a day devoted to YOU. Do you feel ok? Better than ok? Are you at 100 percent – physically, mentally and emotionally? If you answered yes to these questions, take the day off! Staying home to relax with a good book, catch up on housework or sleep or do absolutely nothing is so much better than staying at home with a fever and stuffed up nose while burying yourself under a tissue-covered blanket.

Everyone needs a day off every now and then (not just when we’re sick), and most of us deserve it. So take advantage and call in “well!” Yes, that’s right: the catch of this brilliant holiday is that you can’t call in with a fake illness. Be honest with your employer and let them know that you’re staying home because you’re well.

Caution: You might not want to celebrate this holiday if you don’t think it will go over well with the bosses. We understand that it’s probably not worth the impending unemployment.
