Why My B-Day Rocks...... GO SEVEN SEVEN!!!!

Saturday, April 25, 2009 |

To start off with....no you all did not miss it.......It's July 7th.

Yeah that's right ........the coolest day ever. 7-7 baby. We won't talk about the year but it also includes 7.

So.....I got the grand idea of wiki-ing my b-day to see what historical significance it has and you all can judge for yourselves how much my b-day is truly "me". And yes I might have saved this blog for my b-day but I might forget it the way my memory is working right now( Yay lack of sleep!) so I'll post it now anyways.

My fave events of 7-7:

1456 – A retrial verdict acquits Joan of Arc of heresy 25 years after her death. (Awesome- God CAN speak to women ye turds of France!)
1846Mexican-American War: American troops occupy Monterey and Yerba Buena, thus beginning the United States conquest of California.( We're going back to Cali- to Cali, to Cali)
1898President William McKinley signs the Newlands Resolution annexing Hawaii as a territory of the United States.( Heck Yes!! Aloha!! Sign me up!)
1928Sliced bread is sold for the first time by the Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri. It is described as “the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped". ( Just proving once again the theory that I may be the greatest thing since sliced bread)
1947 – Alleged and disputed Roswell UFO incident.( The truth is out there)
1953 – Che Guevara sets out on a trip through Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, and El Salvador.( Shout out Mendoza!! Aguantele Argentina!!)

There was bad news too but I'll ignore that.

And now..... the birthdays in common with me!!!!

1860Gustav Mahler, Austrian composer (d. 1911) (YAY- Music and Austria!!)
1887Marc Chagall, Russian painter (d. 1985) (Yay Pretty Paintings!! sigh.)
1899George Cukor, American director (d. 1983) ( Yay director of part of Gone with the Wind and My Fair Lady!)
1943 – Joel Siegel, American film critic (d. 2007) (Yay being judgemental about movies!)
1949Shelley Duvall, American actress( Yay Faerie Tale Theater! Who owns all the DVD's ME that's who! thanks to Gabby for clearing up which Shelley was rocking my b-day)
1959Billy Campbell, American actor (Yay for Hot Men!)
1966Jim Gaffigan, American comedian (Don't be jealous cause we can have cake and hot pockets!)
1980 – Michelle Kwan, American figure skater (Yay figure skaters who are asian!! Shout out Kristi and Michelle - you're still my girlz!)

And now deaths......which I think are pretty significant

1890Henri Nestlé, Founder of Nestlé S.A. (b. 1814) (And he left me a legacy of chocolate.....bless him)
1930Arthur Conan Doyle, Scottish writer (b. 1859) (And so the game was afoot!)
1973 – Veronica Lake, American actress (b. 1919) (The previous icon of sexy blonde hair and sweaters. The torch must be passed)

And now you have my ode to my own birthday. 7-7 you are indeed the coolest and I salute you. And myself. We rock.

Uhm... not to rain on your parade, but isn't Shelley LONG of Cheers fame, not Duvall. Duvall played Olive Oyl. Still cool, but.... *grins*
