Kirk Douglas, 93, Starts Blogging, Feels Sassy About ItS

His first post, on MySpace of all places, is entitled 'Hello, I'm Michael Douglas's Father'. Kirk's current mood, in case you were wondering, is 'sassy'. He has a little sassy emoticon to underline this point.

Kirk's thoughts for yesterday evening, as available in all their emoticon glory here, go as follows:

Years ago, a young beautiful girl ran up to me in the street and I assumed she wanted an autograph. She looked at me with her beautiful blue eyes, sighed, and said, "Michael Douglas's father."

Lots of things like that have happened to me, the other night I was at a formal charity dinner. Buzz Aldrin, the astronaut who walked on the moon and danced with the stars, was there. He came up to me and said, "You know Kirk, people say I look like you." I said, "That's funny, people come up to me and ask, are you the guy that walked on the moon?"
