moon-faced and fertile

...according to this site, that describes female Monday babies—which I also am. Male Monday babies are "usually thick haired and a bit more vain about it." Much to infer from that (yeah, I don't know either).

Regardless, happy belated birthday, Nacho man! In deference to your seniority of eleven months and twenty-nine [?] days, I will oblige you your meme.

And so, I give you the Birthday List with the rules here regurgitated:
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).

Three Events:
1911 - Many cities in the U.S. Midwest broke their record highs and lows on the same day as a strong cold front rolls through. (see The 11/11/11 cold wave).
1918 - World War I ends: Germany signs an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside of Compiègne in France. The war officially stops at 11:00 (The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month).
1992 - The Church of England votes to allow women to become priests.

Two Births, One Death:
1922 - Kurt Vonnegut, American novelist (d. 2007) [Maybe I should read something by him...]
1974 - Leonardo DiCaprio, American actor [OK, so not a terribly important person, but we were born on the same day and year. I liked him in What's Eating Gilbert Grape: "I could go at any time."]
1993 - Erskine Hawkins, American trumpet player and big band leader (b. 1914) [Try a sampling.]
Honorable mention: 1938 - Typhoid Mary, carrier of the typhoid disease (b. 1869). [Died of pneumonia.]

South Korea - Pepero Day

I tag Ms. Liz. Write, dagnabbit, write! [If you don't, I may have to post a photo of you in a union suit in downtown Denver. Don't think I won't!]

Not so thick-haired, I'm afraid. And I also don't really care (when it falls out, I'll shave my head). Perhaps they are equally misinformed on the subject of female "Monday"s?

Regardless, thanks for the birthday wishes!

You beat me to it. I meant to go back and address how I measure up. Possibly moon-faced, though I don't particularly think so. Not sure about the fertility. Haven't wanted to test that just yet.
You're very welcome :) I'll mail you a delicious cupcake with sprinkles. And 34 candles.
