April 21

Always my favorite day of the year ;)

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal.

3 Neat Facts about April 21

The Battle of San Jacinto, where Sam Houston’s army defeated Santa Anna’s army in 1836 – why we celebrate Fiesta during my birthday week!

735 BC - Romulus founded Rome (who knew?)

1986 - Geraldo Rivera opened Al Capone’s vault and found nothing.

2 births

1816 - Charlotte Bronte!

1926 - Queen Elizabeth II

1 Death

1910 - Mark Twain

No writing last night – went to Baby Brother’s play, was pretty good! But I’m itching to write. The dh wants to go to dinner tonight, but I think I’ll get him to bring home dinner and we’ll watch a movie – haven’t been home all week! At least it was a fast one.

Happy Birthday Mary!!! Does that make you Taurus--I can never remember the date change thingy but seem to recall we are both bulls :)

Hope you have a lovely day!!!

Paula said...

Thanks for sharing your presents to yourself! ;)

BTW, I stumbled on DEAR FRANKIE last night on one of the movie channels, so I watched it. What a sweet, sad, hopeful little movie! And it goes without saying that Gerard was yummy.

But now I have to write the sequel in my head. 'Cause, you know, it needs a little more complete ending.

::sigh::

Happy Birthday, Mary!! Like Michelle said, I hope this year you get that first sale. Oh, and a Golden Heart would be nice too. :)

Happy birthday to YOOOOUUUU! Happy birthday to YOOOUUUUUU!!!

MaryF said...

Thanks, guys!!!! It was an okay day at school. My unit gave me a B&N gift card, and Cindi baked me a cake. My mom, Baby Brother and stepdad all called me in the AM. My dad sent me this VERY mushy email, which started me crying. My Other Brother called me at lunchtime. The only person who hasn't told me happy birthday is my son!

I think we're going to kick back tonight, since I have a big party tomorrow night. Oh, and I got two Justin Chambers movies in the mail! If they stink, I'll just fast forward to his parts.

Paula, I've told you about DF - glad you enjoyed it!

MaryF said...

Oh, and I am a Taurus, on the cusp with Aries.

Trish Milburn said...

Okay, I think J needs a good, swift kick in the pants. :)

MaryF said...

LOL, Trish - he made up for it with a heart charm from James Avery with the sign language symbol for "I Love You." Picked it out himself.

Thanks, Alex and Elizabeth! It was a very James Avery birthday ;)
