Being on deadline as I am, I wasn't planning on blogging again for a good week, but Tristi the Pixie decided on tagging me.
Being as these kinds of tags tend to go awfully fast and leave any blogging friends I know already tagged, I thought I'd better get mine done FAST and leave me to my rewrite. But frankly, these really are fun, and I learned a bit in the process.
Here we go for my HISTORY TAG.
1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday without the year:
2. List 3 events that occurred that day:
1787 - New Jersey becomes the third state to ratify the United States Constitution.
(I include this because I love U.S. History.)
1892 - The first performance of Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker is held at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg.
(I include this because I love dance.)
1987 - Larry Wall releases the first version of the Perl programming language.
(I include this not because I have any real idea what Perl is beyond a computer programming language, but because my hubby does, being the amazing techno man that he is and because I've seen books with the word "Perl" on our bookshelves.)
3. List 2 important birthdays:
I assume, besides mine. :)
1863 - Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria (d. 1914)
This is the guy whose assassination began WWI, so I'd consider him pretty important.
Okay, the second is a little tough. I'm stuck mentioning people I really don't admire or consider important, per se. There are actors (Brad Pitt, Katie Holmes), a singer (Christina Aguilera), and someone really atrocious (Joseph Stalin).
None are someone I'd really WANT to mention.
4. List 1 death:
5. List 1 holiday or observance:
Feast of Sebastian the Martyr (Greek Orthodox Church)
Now for tagging other bloggers:
