Birthday Meme

No, I have not fallen into the abyss. Just into finals week. I'll be back this weekend.

Nartian tagged me for the birthday meme.

The Birthday Meme rules are to go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends.

My Birthday is September 7- So here's the goods....

3 events:
1251 BC - A solar eclipse on this date might mark the birth of legendary Heracles at Thebes, Greece.

Hercules! Hercules!!!!!

1979 - The Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) makes its debut.

They knew what this 2 year old would like!

1997 - The first test flight of the F-22 Raptor takes place

I was 1/2 naked on a window sill yelling, "I'm 20!!!!" Ahhhh... the good old days when I'd show my belly.


2 births:
1949 - Gloria Gaynor, American singer- She will survive!
1963 - Eazy-E, American rapper (d. 1995)- Easy E, What up? Am I mellow?

1 holiday:
Brazil - Independence day (from Portugal, 1822).

I'm tagging, if you are so inclined:

Thanks for the tag. :~) I was tagged for this one the other day. I actually enjoyed this meme. Who would have guessed that I share the same b-day with Liam Neeson.
