Birthday Meme

Thanks to Linda at The Ugly Mailbox I get to play in a Meme. 🙂 Here’s how this one works:

You go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day). Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and tag 5 friends. There are five slots in the meme list…If you are tagged, you have to remove the name in the first slot and bump everyone up so that your name can be added to the bottom. Participation is optional.

Here’s the list:

Sarge Charlie

Comedy Plus

TwistedSister…

Ugly Mailbox

Earnest Parenting

And I tag:

Kansans and Friends in Weight Loss

PandaBean

Mountaineer Musings

Scraps of Mind

Go Workout Mom

On my birthday (November 3)

3 Events

  • 1911: Chevrolet officially enters the automobile market in competition with Ford’s Model T
  • 1952: US Government introduces NASA
  • 1998: Former professional wrestler Jesse Ventura is elected Governor of Minnesota

2 Births

  • 39, Lucan, Roman Poet
  • 1953, Dennis Miller, Comedian

1 Holiday

  • Japan, Culture Day (originally celebrated as Emperor’s Birthday until the Meiij Emperor died in 1912).

The editor-in-chief of Earnest Parenting, Amy is the mother of two sets of twin boys. Yes, they drive her crazy, but they also make her laugh occasionally. Amy enjoys writing, quilting, reading, and working on her burgeoning cyber empire.

    Well, thanks a bunch. I guess I’m off to find friends to tag. Of course, now I understand what a meme is. Take care.

    Hi Amy. I’ve picked up your tag and I’ll be posting mine next week. I’ve converted your blog name and Ugly Mailbox into links. That’s part of the background of tags and memes; to promote links.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!
