I am jumping on board Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme. It turns out it was her birthday and she’s just returned from some serious celebrating. To help her to continue her celebrations she’s asked us for information about our own birthdays and to pile up a photo of her. I was not sure what ‘pile up’ meant but here are some results and my answers!
- When is your birthday? – June 10th
- Pick one person who shares your birthday and share what you know about them. – Elizabeth Hurley shares my birthday and she lives a rarefied celebrity life, surrounded by fabulousness, chauffeurs, sycophants, drawers full of jewels and jaw dropping gowns. At least that what it says in Hello Magazine and before you ask, the only similarity is the birth date…..however I do have a chauffeur….
- List one notable event that took place on your birthday. – It all seems to be wars, death, misery and destruction in the ‘what happened on this day’ lists, so I have opted for a literary connection. On this day many, many years ago, Laszlo Biro patented his ballpoint pen. Biro was a Hungarian journalist without whom, who knows we may never have invented the blog…
- Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday. – Coincidentally it is one of our beloved Queenie’s unofficial birthdays (that’s Queenie Elizabeth II to non Brits). For some reason the Solomon Islanders hold her birthday on this day which for one, sounds like a great excuse for a party and two, like a fabulous destination for my own birthday!!
