Zknitter tagged me with the Birthday meme. It was kind of interesting too! The rules are to go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only. Then post 3 events, 2 births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday, then tag 5 friends.
My birthday is February 11......
1790 - Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers, petitions U.S. Congress for abolition of slavery.
1858 - The Blessed Virgin Mary reputedly appears to Saint Bernadette Soubirous of Lourdes.
1990 - Nelson Mandela, a political prisoner for 27 years, is freed from Victor Verster Prison outside Cape Town, South Africa.
1926 - Leslie Nielsen, Canadian actor Okay, I picked him, not for the Airplane movies, but for his role in Tammy and the Bachelor! I love that movie and remember watching it with my mom over and over. He was so dreamy. Tammy, tammy, tammy's in love......
1969 - Jennifer Aniston, American actress So, do you think that rules me out as a potential love interest for Brad...I mean, will he trip out about us having the same birthday and all??
Catholicism - Feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes. I knew this one. See Catholic school girl all my life. In grammar school, every year you had to do a "Saint" Report. Everyone always picked the saint that had the same name as them. There never was a St. Irishgirlieknits. But, St. Bernadette's Feast day was on my birthday so I always picked her. I used to know lots about her. I knew I went to the right University when they had a replica of the Grotto at Lourdes :) Well, and the football team too!
So, I'm tagging these five friends. Enjoy or not :)
