Another meme. This time about birthdays.

I got tagged by Carrie (Irishgirlie).

The Birthday Meme 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.

So, on my birthdate of November 24 (shared at one point w/3 other co-workers - how's that for coincidence?), these happened:

3 events:
1859 - Charles Darwin publishes The Origin of Species.

1904 - The first successful caterpillar track is made. (Being totally engineering geek here.)

1951 - The Broadway play Gigi opens with a then unknown actress by the name of Audrey Hepburn in the title role. (One of my all time favorite actresses.)

2 births: (Both chosen 'cause they were on a little tv series called Roswell that I once loved)
1977 - Colin Hanks, American actor
1978 - Katherine Heigl, American actress - better known as Izzie on Grey's Anatomy

1 holiday (excluding US Thanksgiving give or take every few years):
Feast Day of Saint Colman of Cloyne - Cobh, Ireland

I'm tagging, if you feel like it:
Tapmouse - like no one saw that coming!

Knitting Betty
Chicken Knits

Some cool stuff on your birthday! Sticking to the saint theme, I've never heard of St. Colman (and he's from Ireland too!). Learn something new everyday :)

Doh! How'd I miss this one? Probably cause I'm sick again? I'll have to post mine later when I get a chance!
