Yep. Today is my birthday. Which means I actually wrote this post a few days ago in anticipation of how busy I’d be taking calls and accepting telegrams and flowers all day long on June 11. (Telegrams?!!? How the hell old AM I?)
Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at all the celebs and famous names who share my big day with me. As with every other day of the year, there are a ton of people born that day. However, there are very few that I’ve actually heard of. And thus, a much shorter version of my original list was born entitled …
… plus (bonus!) one word I associate with each of them.
- Adrienne Barbeau – Maude
- Christina Crawford – hangers
- Jacques Cousteau – fish
- Peter Dinklage – Elf
- Hugh Laurie – House
- Vince Lombardi – trophy
- Shia LeBeouf – punk
- Joe Montana – football
- Richard Strauss – music
- Gene Wilder – Frankenstein
Geez. Not a big day for famous baby birthing. Then again, Labor Day has never really been much of a romantic holiday. (To those of you scratching your heads, do the math.)
June is Blog Post by Numbers Month. Wanna play with Mel and me? Just write a “listy-type” post with a number in the title (ex. FOUR Reasons I Love Mayonnaise, SIX Things You Can Do With A Paper Clip). Then link back to us and tweet us about it so we can include you on June 30th in our final list: (Number-Yet-To-Be-Determined) Great Bloggers Who Played the Blog Post by Numbers Game!
HAPPY Birthday!!!! That is a nice list of people who share your birthday.Hugh Laurie! Maude! 🙂 Plus they share YOUR day which is a privilege for them.
Have a great year! (I share with Mike Farrell: M*A*S*H, Ronald Reagan *Prez*, and Zsa Zsa Gabor: she’s “touchy/feely” LOL)
happy birthday to the 11 of you, a very dynamic bunch ) beth
That year, Labor Day evidently had some special meaning. Possibly mint juleps were served?
Happy Birthday to you! I love Peter Dinklage :). And the word association with Shia LeBeouf make me laugh.. ha!
Happy birthday Michele! I hope your day is full of chocolate and cheese! Don’t lift a finger today, you deserve it!
I love the word you associated with Shia LeBeouf. I have some other words for him, but punk is a good one. 😉
Happy birthday. I’ve heard of 4 or 5 of them
