Blame La

La posted an interesting little meme today.

Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post three events, two births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends.

3 Events:
  • 1897 - Dracula, a novel by Irish author Bram Stoker is published.
  • 1953 - Jackie Cochran becomes the first woman to break the sound barrier (she flew in a F-86 Sabrejet at an average speed of 652.337 miles per hour (1049.835 km/h) at Rogers Dry Lake, California).
  • 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption: Mount St. Helens erupts in Washington, killing 57 people and causing $3 billion in damage.
2 Births:
  • 1868 - Nikolai Aleksandrovich Romanov, Nicholas II, Last Emperor of Russia (d. 1918)
  • 1912 - Perry Como, American singer (d. 2001)
1 Holiday:
  • Festival of the god Pan in Ancient Greece
I chose the eruption of Mt. St. Helens because I distinctly remember it happening. For reasons that still defy me, I felt so guilty. Here it was my 8th birthday and I felt guilty because a volcano decided to erupt and kill 57 people.

For the births I had to chose the Czar of Russia. I've always had a fascination with his family and specifically his youngest daughter, Anastasia. I've long held that if I ever have a daughter, that will be her name. Anastasia Corrine. And I had to chose Perry Como, cause come on.. He is Perry Fucking Como. hehehehe

Participate if ya like. If ya don't, then just call me a lemming. :OP
