Happy Birthday to Me


October 26, 2007 by Marj Hatzell

Today is my birthday.  Number thirty-five, to be exact. Today will be just like any other. I am not one for huge celebrations, parties, dinners and the like.  Our anniversary?  We celebrate that quite well (Dinner at Dilworthtown next week!  Can’t wait!).  To us, Birthdays don’t need celebrating. We don’t like cake (so sometimes I make brownies or get Tiramisu) and dont’ need anything by way of presents.  Honestly, it’s just no big deal.  I feel twenty.  People tell me I look 27 (go MK facial stuff!).  I probably act like a two-year old.

Red letter day in history!  This is who I share a birthday with:

Hillary Clinton

Sasha Cohen (the figure skater, not Borat)

Jon Heder (Napolean Dynomite)

Keith Urban

Natalie Merchant

Cary Elwes (yummy!)

Pat Sajak

Bob Hoskins (actor)

Mahalia Jackson

Who Died?

Hattie Mc Daniel

Gus Mancuso (baseball player)

Feast Days

St. Albinus

St. Alfred the Great

St. Cedd

St. Fulk

St. Quadragesimus

And in history today?

 1947 – The British Military Occupation ends in Iraq.

1948Killer smog settles into Donora, Pennsylvania.

1977 – The last natural case of smallpox was discovered in Merca district, Somalia. The WHO and the CDC consider this date the anniversary of the eradication of smallpox, the most spectacular success of vaccination.

1984 – “Baby Fae” receives a heart transplant from a baboon.

1984 – John D. McCollum shoots and kills himself after spending a day listening to Ozzy Osbourne records; a lawsuit is later filed by his parents over the song “Suicide Solution“, but the case is eventually thrown out.

2002Moscow Theater Siege ends: Approximately 50 Chechen rebels and 150 hostages die when Russian Spetsnaz storm a theater building in Moscow, which had been occupied by the rebels during a musical performance three days before.

So, October 26 is an important day afterall!  Have a good unbirthday.
