Today has been an important date all around – especially here at the Hotel Thompson! You do realize what a huge fanatic my mom is about the mouse that wears the white gloves? I mean, it’s bad enough that there are Mickey Mouse shapes across the facial boards of the Hotel Thompson… let alone the mouse is somehow someway in every room… and mom even has a tattoo of the fellow – shocker huh? I think you can say that she’s serious about Mickey.
Can you believe that November 18, 1928, Mickey Mouse made his debut into entertainment. He wasn’t originally known as Mickey Mouse. Did you know that? His first mark into history came in Steamboat Willie as Mortimer Mouse. They changed his name shortly thereafter – good thing too, huh?
In 1929, they came out with a short called The Opry House. This is when the mouse got his famous white gloves for his outfit.
And, did you know that Walt Disney himself did the voice of Mickey Mouse up until 1946?
And, the most important thing I found that I *know* mom is going to have a fit about.. there’s actually a Mickey Mouse cocktail. It’s made with tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and a lime wedge. I guess it could be a grown up version by adding Vodka.
So, let’s all wish mom’s little idol a Happy Birthday!!
