Today’s the day! It’s finally here ~ March 29th. The greatest day in the history of days. Okay, that might be a bit much. It is a pretty fabulous day.
Did you know on this day:
Edward of York defeated Queen Margaret to become King Edward IV. That was back in 1461 before the internet.
In 1886 Dr. John Pemberton brewed the first batch of Coca-Cola in his backyard!
Waaaay back in 2004 the Republic of Ireland became the first country to ban smoking in all work places including restaurants and bars. Way to go!
Some pretty cool peeps share their birthday with yours truly:
Eric Idle is 69
Lucy Lawless is 44 Go Xena!
Megan Hilty of Smash (I’m not printing her age because she’s a baby compared to the rest of us!)
Elle MacPherson is 48
Amy Sedaris is 51
and Perry Ferrell of Jane’s Addiction is 53. Dang I love that band.
Other cool things about today?
Today is my 99th blog post. This morning when I took my car to get serviced, the guy gave me an upgraded GPS for my birthday! AND since they have to keep my car overnight they are going to detail it. Sweet!
**I now highly recommend getting your car or any other service done on your birthday**
I was hoping I could tell you all that we got our hotel of choice for Comic-Con, but I haven’t heard back from them yet. Darn! Fingers crossed.
I got to have lunch with my good friend Tey yesterday, Laura today, I’m having a super fab dinner with the Hubs and Kid tonight, and tomorrow I’m seeing Jenny Hansen and her Baby Girl!
I know it sounds silly, but when I logged onto facebook this morning and saw all the birthday wishes, I got a little verklempt. No, a lot. I might’ve cried a tear too. Or eighteen.
This has been the best week ever. Thank you everyone for celebrating with me. Much love.
