birthday info
posted by soe 11:15 pm

I’m feeling a little sleepy tonight (at least that’s what I’m guessing I should pick up from dozing off in front of Trader Joe’s after dinner and then again in front of the tv), so I thought I’d be lazy and just post a meme that Paula tagged me for over the weekend:

The rules: You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (only month & day). Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends.


  • 1843 – The event that inspired the song “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!” is held.
  • 1859 – Oregon [where I was born in the following century] admitted as the 33rd U.S. state.
  • 1984 – British ice dance team Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean win gold at the Olympic Games in Sarajevo for their free dance “Bolero.”


  • 1894 – Jack Benny, American actor and comedian (d. 1974)
  • 1934 – Florence Henderson, American actress

Holiday (I opted against the obvious Valentine’s Day)

  • Bulgaria – Trifon Zarezan (Wine-grower’s Day)

No one asked, but the following deaths also occured on my birthday:

  • 1975 – P. G. Wodehouse, English writer (b. 1881)
  • 2003 – Dolly, first cloned mammal (b. 1996)

I don’t tag people, but I’d enjoy seeing what your results are, either on your own blog or in the comments, if you’re interested in playing along.
