A Birthday MeMe

By | March 11, 2012

No, it’s not my birthday today, but I was tagged into a fun MeMe, I thought I would join in. I’d love it if you did too.

Here goes….

1. When is your birthday?

My birthday is on April 9th, which this year will fall on Easter Monday. As you will know from yesterdays Kreativ tagging blog, I was six weeks premature so should have been born around end May.

April 9th is the 99th day of the year – 100th in leap years – in the Gregorian calendar.

2. List 3 people who share your birthday and share what you know about them.

1954 – actor Dennis Quaid – the ending of Inner Space always makes me cry, it’s very mushy.

1963 – American fashion designer Marc Jacobs – always wear his Daisy perfume (have a bottle of Lola too)

1966 – American actress Cynthia Nixon – best known for Sex In The City.

3. Is anyone listed as being born on the same day as you, in the same year? If so, what do you know about them?

The only “famous” person listed, I’d never heard of.

But had I been born closer to my due date I could have shared a birthday with C (May 8th), D (May 20th) or my wedding anniversary (May 30th). May is an expensive month!

4. List three people that died on your birthday and what you know about them.

2 popes died on April 9th:
Year 715 – Pope Constantine
Year 1024 – Pope Benedict VIII
Year 1962 – Zip the Pinhead died, an American side show performer. I’ve chosen him as his name made me laugh.

5. List 3 noteable events that took place on your birthday.

1966 – Funeral of Martin Luther King Junior
1969 – Concorde 002 made its maiden flight from Filton to RAF Fairford
2002 – Funeral of Elizabeth, the Queen Mother
2005 – civil wedding ceremony of Charles, Prince of Wales to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall at Windsor’s Guildhall.

6. Tag 5 more people.

I’m going to tag:
(yes, I know that’s eight)
