My annual birthday post

posted: Dec 2, 2005 9:01:43 PM

Today is my birthday, and this counts as my third birthday since starting this blog. On my first, I started offering advice to other people who share this birth date, e.g., my advice to Britney Spears.

Then, on my second, I slacked and just linked to the first one.

Now, on my third, I am again looking at my The Simpsons calendar, and I see that Lucy Liu and I not only share the same birthday, but also (maybe) the same birth year. (The calendar says aye, but IMDB says nay, and Wikipedia says nay.

Looking at Wikipedia's December 2 page (note: nope, I'm not listed—they should add me because they've got a hole for my birth year), there are a boat load of things to be distracted by, but I'll note a few of the other December 2nd birthdays that I'm amused to see: Penelope Spheeris (the original Decline is so my adolescence), Sarah Silverman (hilarious foul mouthed Jewish girls are so my childhood), and Ray Walston (My Favorite Martian = childhood, "Mr. Hand" = adolescence).

My advice on my birthday this year is simple: don't spend too much of your birthday reading all the entries in Wikipedia about people born on the same day as you!
