Filler Bunny

(Meme) Wikipedia Meme.......baaa

I died during the night and have been reincarnated as a sheep. Thus I must follow the pack with the Wikipedia meme. Although I'm ignoring the official rules (I'm a rebel sheep me) and just listing down a few births, deaths and events that happened on my illustrous birthday without doing the 1, 2, 3 thing (or whatever the guidelines were).

Anyway, the people decided to have their birthdays with me:

1953 - Pierce Brosnan, Irish actor (James Bond, Remington Steel)
1971 - David Boreanaz, American actor (Angel)
1966 - Janet Jackson, American singer
1919 - Liberace, American pianist (d. 1987)
1905 - Henry Fonda, American actor (d. 1982)
1611 - Pope Innocent XI (d. 1689)
1964/5? - Mike Berry, Leisure Games head honcho (This always causes a discussion on who should have the day off/leave early as it's there birthday! :p)

The following forgot to buy me a birthday present and thus died on my birthday:

1990 - Sammy Davis, Jr., American singer, actor, and comedian (b. 1925)
1990 - Jim Henson, American puppeteer (b. 1936)
1957 - Eliot Ness, American federal agent (b. 1903) (he of Untouchables fame)

...and now some memorable dates that occured on my birthday. Obviously other peoples memorable occurences because let's face it, how would I remember what happens on my birthday?!?

1532 - Sir Thomas More resigns as Lord Chancellor of England.
1568 - Mary Queen of Scots flees to England.
1770 - 14-year old Marie Antoinette marries 15-year-old Louis-Auguste who later becomes king of France.
1836 - Edgar Allan Poe marries his 13-year-old cousin Virginia. (Seems to be a lot of underage weddings going on doesn't there...)
1918 - The Sedition Act is passed by the U.S. Congress, making criticism of the government a jailable offense.
1929 - In Hollywood, California, the first Academy Awards are handed out.
1943 - World War II: The Dambuster Raids by RAF 617 Squadron on German dams.
1972 - The new messiah is born unto the mortal world.....

In Praise Of The Fish God....

Louisa has been cooking fish. Apparently she needs 'brain food'.

Right now I think I need 'nose plugs'.

God, the house stinks. Just glad it's a nice day outside so I can open up the windows to try and bring some of that freshness inside the house.

I would go out whilst the smell clears (Louisa has done, damn her..:p) but I have to be online for a meeting at 15:00 and also have to get myself a bite to eat before then.

Yeah, you're right. I should stop writing meaningless posts on LJ and to go and cook something. Maybe my cooking will get rid of the fishyness....

Almost, but not quite.....

I wouldn't exactly say that I'm bored and restless (I've had *way* too much work to do today to be bored!) but let's put it this way:

I was actually considering going to Slimelight for a bit earlier.

And those of you who know my feelings about Slimelight will understand my first sentence better.

Although saying that I probably *am* going to Slimes next Saturday as both voices of Masada and NFD are playing. Sin would have a go at me if I didn't go to see them and in anycase I want to seee both bands and it's an evening gig which means I can escape before Slimes actually gets into full motion. So I guess I'm not really going to Slimelight next week. I'm going to a gig at Slimelight and then coming home before the drug-fuelled antics, 'better than thou' attitudes and politics start.

Hmm....putting it that way why was I thinking of going tonight????

LJ Locations....

This new Locations idea that LJ has tied into Google Earth is a bit shit imho. Admittedly I've taken the piss with it a bit but everything I've done just goes to places in the States!!! My last entry was from the Moon (honest guv) and when I followed the link it showed me about 5 or 6 places in the States!

OK, so it taught me that there are some towns in the US called 'Moon' but still....!

Anyway, I'm out of both cigarettes and Southern Comfort (and coke for that matter) so need to run to the corner shop for supplies.

Bah humbug!

Edit: OK, upon further examination the places that came up as 'The Moon' are actually businesses located in the US apparently. Worse is that one of the top entries for 'Cubicle 7 HQ' was McDonalds! Yuk....
