1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)

All done! Check me out - Orlando Bloom and I are the same age, to the day! (I wonder what time he was born at...) :-)

I miss talking with you! I graduate in 590 hours if you want to come! (Dec 16 10 am).
I love your last comment on my xanga, see what happens when you leave us? We start thinking inappropriate things about evil kittens.
We got to plan a road trip sometime so we can see each other. As of Dec 16 I'll be pretty much unemployed so I might can then =)

J'ai aussi ajouté ton blog à mes liens :-)

Lis le post "témoignages"... peut-être cela peut-il t'intéresser ?

I miss you too, Hollie! I know, I need to keep y'all in line ;-D I would love to come see you, but I don't think I'll be able to for your graduation =( I'm so excited for you though! Any time you want to come to Austin, though, we have a guest room ready and waiting! We're going to have to come visit Tyler sometime. Take care!
