Spring Cleaning Meme O' Random


What to do on this lovely, sunny... at least here... Good Friday? Why surf, of course! Here's a meme I found over at Momentary Lapses of Insanity, home of that lovely purveyor of pointy sticks and all things Viking, Misty.

What you do is go to Wikipedia, and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three interesting facts, two births and one death in your blog, including the year. And on we go...


Facts


Births


Death

There! Now off you go to do your research. What happened on your birthday?

What I really have to do is go tidy the yard. The snow has finally melted and left behind its usual spring offering of flotsam and jetsam - one glove, lots of sand (spread on the roads to combat the ice, then shoved up onto your property by the snow plow), litter and the ubiquitous dog poo.

Ya got that straight. Nothin' more romantic than dog poo. Fuh shizzle.

No. Snow.

And now? No dirt, leaves, twigs, assorted bits of garbage or... dog poo. 3 hours of pushin' broom and my driveway, steps, deck and the sidewalk in front of my house are clean again.

I have a date with an ice pack and ibuprophen, but the place is clean.

Ouch.

"Vincent Van Gogh cuts off the lower part of his left ear, takes it to a brothel, and gives it to a prostitute named Rachel."

Makes me feel quite sane :)

MP - Woo hoo! Now you can incorporate potato worship into your birthday celebrations...

Misty - Oh yes, me, too! Everyone knows you should always cut off your right ear, not your left. What was Vincent thinking?

A 'Merican country singer. Mostly known, I guess for:

"The End of the World":
"Why does my heart keep on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know?
It's the end of the world.
It ended when you said goodbye."
