Image Credit: Albert L. Ortega/PR PhotosWilliam Shatner turns 79 today. I pause to celebrate him because I still have the 2008 Boston Legal series finale saved on my DVR, because I love that he signs his tweets “My best, Bill” (as in, “#youknowyoureoldwhen Young girls help you with your luggage because the carousel is too fast. My best, Bill”), because he always embraces who we want him to be (hello, new sci-fi social network, and because he’s still working (a new album, the S— My Dad Says pilot).

Your turn.
