Birthday Blog-o-rama Tuesday: The Big Day

 

 

Lookit! I made it a whole ‘nother year! *throws confetti and glitter, gets vacuum*

Now that’s done.

Happy Birthday to me. And my friends Alison and Dap and Charlie. And blackredsoxfan, Antwan. (If you are a sports fan, go give his blog a looksee)

So I have a few birthday buddies, but who else shares the fantastic July 22 birthdate?

A lot of people.

  • Alex Trebek 
  • Danny Glover
  • John Leguizamo
  • Selena Gomez
  • Louise Fletcher
  • Gregor Mendel 

 

  • Alexander the Great 
  • Albert Brooks
  • George Clinton (of the P-Funk)
  • Willem Dafoe
  • And apparently Kate and Will brought baby George into this world on this day last year. Well, Happy Birthday, kiddo. 

And there are many, many, many more. This makes me wonder if some of us share the same characteristics. Oversensitivity, nurturing nature, emotional…

 

  • The number one song on the charts this day in 1977: Barry Manilow, “Looks Like We Made It” (on the Billboard Top 100 it was “Da Doo Run Run” by Shaun Cassidy) 

 

  • The Island of Dr. Moreau was the number one movie (the week after, that spot was usurped by Star Wars reclaiming its rightful place).

 

It seems like July 22 is a pretty good day. Continuing on in that vein, I’m going to give away some free digital copies of my book Physical Therapyand a couple of $5 Amazon gift cards to the newest followers of this blog. Hey, it’s my party, and I’ll give away stuff if I want to.
